“Beautiful tranquil place”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We loved the Hacienda, staying for 4 nights. The rooms, setting, service and food were all exceptional. Beautiful pool areas to relax; we did have a hire car though to get out and explore. Dinner is served at 9 - 9.30pm; a long wait for us Brits so perhaps some tea & cake in the library or drawing room at 5ish might be an idea?! Our son is wheat & gluten intolerant and all staff (and thank you to the excellent chef) went out of their way to accommodate this. Really lovely place, felt more like a relaxed house guest than hotel guest, highly recommended. Sadly their sister hotel Corral del Rey was a let down....see separate review.

Room is large but bedroom was up spiral staircase. Walking down to bathroom in middle of night is scary. Also no shower...just bath. I don't use bathtubs so this was very difficult for me. Location is isolated so dinner at 55 euros is expensive unless you drive to Seville or another larger city. Great place if you just want to sit by the pool and be pampered.

Room Tip: Ask for bedroom on one floor and showers, if available

Beautiful rural location, surrounded by sunflower fields. The Hacienda is paradise and we felt very pampered, the service is exceptional (a special mention to Anna who really goes the extra mile) all staff we met were very pleasant and friendly.
It was our wedding anniversary and a bottle of chilled wine and card was waiting for us in our room which was beautifully furnished with great attention to detail.
Pre dinner drinks in a small bar in the gardens served by Anna (a great hostess) were lovely. Food is fantastic, super breakfast served outside your room whenever you get up! We had tasty tapas for lunch by the pool and although a set menu for dinner both nights it was superb...
This is a beautiful romantic hotel........

The property was about a 30-45 minute drive from downtown Sevilla in a rural locale. Wheat and sunflower fields surround this beautiful former olive farm, converted into a beautiful lodging facility. Two pools on the property, one more utilized than the other, allowing for a more private setting, if desired, at the one. The dinner was outstanding, worth every penny. The room was very spacious, including a loft with a sofa. WIFI was spotty--only reliable in a separate sitting room. You are in the countryside, so bring some snacks for the room and a bottle of wine for the room or by the pool, so you aren't limited to what they have on hand or held to paying for every drink you have. There is a gas station just past the driveway if you need some odds and ends. This was a wonderful and relaxing stop in our tour of Spain, a welcome break from the cities we had toured in a quiet, luxurious setting. Fantastic.

Room Tip: To the best of my knowledge, the rooms are all nearly identical.

Really excellent food, peaceful and pretty, away from the maddening crowd. Loved the pool and the night time dinner setup. Staff were helpful and friendly, a really a nice place. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here.

We recently spent three nights at the Hacienda, it is very beautiful and comfortable, and Gerry the manageress was friendly, efficient, courteous and helpful. The only niggles we had were that having arrived on a Monday, other than Gerry, no other member of staff spoke English (including waitresses) and the food wasn't as good as the other two nights which were excellent. The service improved greatly on the Tuesday and Wednesday and we were then very well looked after. The other niggle is that there is no choice of menu, which I personally found disappointing as there is no where else in the vicinity to have a good meal. My fault, perhaps, for not researching that aspect better! It is also extremely expensive!

Fell in love with the hotel while waiting the sumptuous living room to sign in. The hotel is luxurious and you'll feel pampered. But there are many hotels that pamper you for the money. What is different here is inclusiveness you can (if you wish) enjoy with the other guests. Everyone dines together (but at separate tables) at 8 pm (hopefully I have the time correct). Before 8 people sip drinks in the living room or as we did one evening, sit outside around a fire. We found people talked to each other about their day's travel and sometimes joined other dinner tables. It never felt forced nor impolite if you decided to be alone - there is an ease about the place. A wonderful family-type ease. I found a fabulous book in the living room and asked if I could buy it - they gave it to me as a gift.

The electricity went off one evening and most of us in the dining room thought it was intentional - as a romantic gesture. After dinner we went back to our rooms to find lit candles throughout - once again lovely and romantic.
