We have been meaning to return to Alajar for a year or 2 and now that the new hotel is open we wanted to see Lucy and Angel's eco accomodation and visit at a different time of year - we were not disappointed.
The new rooms all open out onto the lovely outdoor spaces with terraces and gardens either directly from the door, or from a balcony, so the rooms have an instantly relaxing feel. Even in November it was warm enough to sit on the balcony to read my book and I loved the new garden and pool area with its fantastic views up to La Pena and the surrounding hills. Lucy's evening meals were spot on again, with the cosy restaurant buzzing with conversation from the other guests and Angel was able to give us suggestions for walks we hadn't tried last time. All in all would highly recommend a stay, for friendly service, helpful advice and comfy rooms, not to mention great breakfasts and evening meals. Keep up the hard work!
