“Gorgeous!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We stayed here after visiting the Bodega for Cardenal Mendoza. It is right outside of the city and it is absolutely beautiful! The rooms were gorgeous! Great bar with TV and excellent breakfast in the morning! The grounds are gorgeous. My only regret was not staying longer.

We stayed in May ahead of our wedding in July where we brought 100 guests to Montecastillo to celebrate out wedding. They accommodated all our wishes in the build up and delivered on the day. Our guests stayed for 5 days and all had their own splendid experiences, from food, drinks, pool, service, staff, gym, golf and baby sitting. Something for everyone.

Our paella party on the Friday night at the castle went exactly as planned, orchestrated perfectly by the events team and staff.

I've not one bad thing to say! The bookings team throughout were amazing, the events team, brilliant and every member of staff a delight.

Whatever you're looking for in a trip, Montecastillo will surpass your expectations

Have visited Montecastillo 3 times previously, twice with a group of Golfers and once before just with family. We,ve returned to the hotel due to the continued good value, and enjoyable previous stays. The only part of previous visits that have let this resort down has been the standard of the food on offer. We were interested prior to our stay this year of the improved reviews in this area, and we totally agree with their content. The hotel in the last 12 months have taken not of the negative comments, and responded in a very positive way and totally refurbished the bar and restaurant area. The standard of the food served has been improved dramatically. Their is now a chef available at each meal service cooking fresh omelettes & eggs at breakfast, and a fresh meat and fish for lunch and dinner. They have also provided a much better choice of starters and desserts. The dining experience was much improved. Buggies have now been made compulsory for play before 11.00, though we played at 10.00 everyday, and frequently found people with push trolley. Buggies here are a little on the expensive side at 42€, but will definately make your round more enjoyable! as it is quite a tough walk! though if they restrict buggy movements to cart paths only! prepare yourself. If you have a buggy for more than 4 rounds ask for a discount, we prebooked and got 15% discount, so 35€ per day.
Well done to Montecastillo, the improvements are much appreciated, and look forward to returning next year.

This was the third time in four years we have stayed here for a week's golf with a party of friends. There is just something about the place which keeps calling us back. It could be the staff who are tremendous, the golf course which is a challenge for all players and just a few steps from the hotel or the shady terrace overlooking the 18th fairway and green for drinks after golf and before lunch.

However let's be clear on one point - there is nothing else to do on site or in the surrounding area except play golf and lie by one of the two outdoor pools. Sounds like bliss? Then it's the place for you. The nearby racing circuit was quiet this year but can be a little noisy although not intrusively so. Jerez is 15 to 20 minutes drive away and worth visiting if only to visit the Spanish horses or one of the many sherry bodegas. Another possible downside is the abandoned development behind the hotel although it at least looks better now that the cranes have been taken away. Getting there is fairly straightforward as the airports of Seville, Gibraltar and Malaga are all well within a 2 and a half hour drive. We drove via Santander which entailed an overnight stop (it's around 600 miles) but the journey on empty, free motorways was easy. There is plenty of free parking at the hotel.

All the rooms were updated in 2013 at which time the restaurant and bar area were also revamped. I liked the previous old style rooms but the upgrade has been very well done and we still felt very much at home.

The staff are worthy of a special mention both in the bar and restaurant. We already recognised many of them (and they remembered us as well). They went out of their way to make us welcome and prepared a table for our whole party each lunch and dinner time. The restaurant is buffet (for all inclusive residents and this is the only way to go) but we didn't tire of the selection and the introduction of a grill where meat and fish is cooked to order was a welcome addition. Free wifi in all areas was excellent.

And so to the golf course. It's a championship course and very challenging particularly off the whites. Having said that our mixed party boasted handicaps between 5 and 33 and no-one felt it was either too easy or too challenging. It was a test for everyone and although we played every day we never tired of the course. You do need a buggy as the course is long and some of the walks from green to tee are long, hot and uphill. I personally prefer to walk whenever I can but wouldn't dream of it here during the summer months.

In short - we will all be going back and can't wait for the next visit.

Room Tip: All rooms are well appointed and of a good size. There is therefore no real need to upgrade. There a...

In 4/07/14 and 6/07/14
I have had an opportunity in my life time to visit some mos amazing places in the world: Bali, Tahiti, Fiji, Cotteswood of Oxfordshire (UK) etc. But I never thought I would find a such beautiful place where this hotel locates.

Barcelo Montecastillo Golf hotel has gone through the major refurbishment, and they have succeed 100%. Rooms are nicely refurbished , and it is worth to pay room supplement to face the golf course. The view is breathtaking (if these room are full, no worries, as all the services are facing Golf course, like Bar, restaurant)
.
When you arrive to hotel, you go through security gate and drive about two minutes to get to the main entrance of hotel. Don't let the building site outside of the hotel to bother you, as once you enter to hotel, it won't bother you at all!
Lobby is spacious but not massive (fab) We had room 414 (with balcony), which was on the top floor, facing golf course . And what a view. I was resting on the bed earlier in the evening, balcony doors widely open and saw amazing sun set, and a beautiful blue sky with stars.

Each room has been refurbished, and they have all major facilities, and great flat screen TV, and several TV stations to keep you busy, if you just want to relax. Also, Wi-Fi was reasonable fast (was able to work and no worries with downloads)

Bathrooms have not been refurbished, but they are still in good condition.I was told that they are going to be done next. Water pressure was reasonable. Good 5 tar hotel facilities (tea and coffee making facilities in the room. One Minus thing: NO IRON AND IRONING BOARDS IN THE HOTEL FOR CUSTOMER USAGE. So, bring your travel iron.Or use Hotel's laundry service.
Beds really comfortable and pillows choice options!
I also had a look at Luxury rooms, and they have extra Sofa in the room and a bit bigger. Villas are great, definitely think to book one next time .Particularly handy if you go there with friends or family and cost per night was really reasonable.

Breakfast : Buffet brfst, and if weather is good (as it is most of the time) get the table outside. We were sitting there every time, as it is so calming to see the golf course around you (lake, gooses and a such fresh air). Breakfast buffet is good, so worth to have your room booked with brfst

Dinner buffet: it really cost 25 Euros with bottle of Wine. It is not a Gourmet restaurant (as Buffet restaurants never are/ you can also order a la carter), but it wasn't bad at all ( And I am fussy about my food). And cost is so low, worth to try it.

There are two pools, one straight outside of the hotel building, and one next to Spa, where they have Gym. Please note, there is a charge to use the spa (I think it was 9 Euros).I used only Gym and that was 5 Euros. Very good Gym, it had all the facilities you could wish, spacious and clean! Pool by Spa was much bigger than one by hotel, but it was nice and quiet.Well, one by hotel was nice as well, and not busy.Also, children pool is by hotel.

This is hotel for people who want to just chill out, and same time look after themselves (Spa and Golf). Or if you visit Jerez, and want to stay somewhere nice, quiet and beautiful . And stay there now, as their prices are really reasonable . I am sure they are going up, as this hotel is going to be the Place to stay in Spain
Staff was really professional and so helpful. We had five star luxury service from staff.
The gentleman who checked us out on Sunday morning was so professional. No attitude but 100% professionalism ( Forgot his name, otherwise i would have added it here).

Customer service lady over the week-end was also very service minded. When I requested to see other room types, and as they were fully booked, she informed me straight away when room was ready to be viewed (as I plan to bring some friends and family here next time.Cannot miss the opportunity to them to say : WOW, without breaking the bank!).

Again, top management must be up to their job, as staff was so professional.

I have been so lucky with my hotels, and this was again like winning in the lottery!And cost: 2 nights in Superior room with brfst 212 Euros/Booked directly through Bacelo.com hotels website.Don't miss that as they have so many discounts there (registered as friend and got 55 discount etc!!!!!). Oh , almost forgot.i booked through Barcelo.com. They even brought a little cup cakes (looked like a golf balls) to our room on first day!And nice bottle of drinking water and all included to that price!! FABULOUS!!!
DON'T MISS THIS PLACE. YOUR WIFE FORGIVES YOU TO PLAY GOLF WHOLE DAY, YOUR GIRLFRIEND WILL MARRY YOU AND YOUR BOYFRIEND WILL BUY YOU ANYTHING IF YOU TAKE THEM HERE!! AND YOUR KIDS LOVE YOU MORE THAN EVER BEFORE

Room Tip: Golf course facing rooms are amazing with the view

We booked through Golf Breaks and this is a fantastic hotel, everything about it is 5 star! The setting is stunning, the staff are friendly and the food is exception considering it was buffet style. The daily menu at lunch times was served it was amazing - I have never eaten so many types of fish! We didn't visit the spa, not enough time with unlimited golf, but others said it was great! The golf course a real championship course in excellent condition - no two holes the same
