“Los Jarales a total treat to the senses , do not miss it .”
Reviewed 13 July 2009

My partner and I have traveled all over the world and enjoyed the best 5*+ hotels , and the most remote huts in far of jungles .
And the wonderful diversity of our experience has been upstaged by our recent stay in this exceptional Spanish rural Temple.
The views are truly memorable , the atmosphere is traditional Spanish ,,the food and drink most enjoyable ,and the friendly and obliging attentiveness of the waiter Diego is a treat .
The rooms are organically minimal, and the South facing, overview a lake with distant glimpses of Gibraltar and Africa .
My senses where filled with the sound of cekardo ,pine trees ,and ambrosoler .
The nearby village of Istan is a Jem with an abundance of simple bars and tapas restaurants ,and only a short scenic walk while
being watched by eagles over head .The Hotel is run by Paky and her partner and your reliance on there kindness will not be misplaced .
obviously I thoroughly recommend this place.

Reviewed 25 August 2008

I spent the last 2 nights of a week’s holiday driving around southern Spain (Granada, Cordoba, Gibraltar, Seville) at this hotel with my mother and it was just what we needed after being on the go and sightseeing for a whole week. The hotel location is amazing and the surrounding scenery is absolutely breathtaking. The hotel has a very nice, family run atmosphere about it. The rooms aren’t 5 star luxury but seeing as that’s not what we were looking for, we were happy. The rooms were clean, comfortable and very quaint. We never drove into Marbella in the evenings but chose to eat at the hotel restaurant instead, there is a beautiful terrace on which you can sit and admire the views while having your meals. The restaurant had a good selection to chose from but we were told by a lovely family we met at the hotel that it is only a 15min drive into Marbella. The hotel also has its own on site parking which was an added benefit after having to pay for parking at every other hotel we had been to. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who just wants to get away from city life and relax for a while but with the option of driving into Marbella to get some of the city atmosphere if they wish.
