“Romantic setting, chilled out andbeautiful hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2012 via mobile

We stayed for 3 nights. The views are amazing. Quiet location which makes it a romantic get away. Staff were warm friendly. Pom is a great host. Frank and javier offered top notch service and gave us lots of recommendations on where to go and places to eat. Suite was beautiful with a copper bath and four poster bed. The food was absolutely fantastic. It's not cheap but I thought good value for money.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Hotel La Fuente De La Higuera - our room (the junior suite) was wonderful, with a log fire which we lit on a couple of evenings, and a great terrace overlooking the pool, which we used for sunbathing.

All of the staff were very helpful (especially Frank and Javier) and helped us with booking various things during our stay including a great trip to a vineyard in Rhonda, canyoning in Rhonda gorge and sherry tasting in Jerez. Breakfasts were generous and very tasty, and the evening meals were nice, if quite expensive. However, as we were very close to Rhonda it was easy to drive to Rhonda for evening meals on some of the nights. It was good that they had an honesty bar as that made it easy to get drinks during the day and it included ice-creams too.

All in all, a great hotel which we would really recommend.

Room Tip: Junior suite was really nice

if you are headed to rhonda, this is the perfect place to stay. it's about 10 minutes outside rhonda and is on a hill with amazing views. rhonda is great, but there is really no reason to stay in the town. it's much more fun to go in for a bit during the day and retreat to la fuente. the hosts are amazing and the food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) are top notch. the property is beautiful with a small pool the rooms are great. the owners love what they do and it shows. they were so helpful and really made you feel that you were at home. they are in the business of making you happy and they do it well. we can't wait to go back some day soon.

Room Tip: they are all good. don't overthink it.

This was a perfect place to stay for our one night in Ronda. Very friendly owners and staff, great lunch and dinner and a beautiful view. Our room was great - just outside of the main house - comfortable bed with a nice sitting room and pretty bathroom with a huge tub. Ronda is beautiful and has some great walks but we were happy to not be staying right in the town. This inn was perfect for us since we were traveling with our toddler and could put him to bed and then go to the dining room for a great meal in the main house. It's definitely for people looking for piece and quiet and who are not looking for the big-hotel-fanfare. This is easy going and more like staying in someone's really nice house than in a hotel. I highly recommend it for a night or two.

Right from the moment you arrive and receive a warm welcome you know you are staying somewhere special.
Location - the hotel is about 20 mins drive from Ronda down some small country lanes, fairly remote and quiet. Fantastic views over the countryside.
Rooms- we had a basic room but it was beautiful with a lovely four poster bed. Spacious bathroom and terrace with sunbeds and table and chairs
Food- we stayed two nights, and ate our evening meal one night which was very very good. Not cheap but very tasty, you get the menu that morning and decide whether to dine there that evening. Lunch was also excellent. Only down side, breakfast was disappointing, consisting of cereal, ham, cheese, whole pieces of fruit. Very uninteresting, could have done with some pastries or even some cooked options such as eggs and bacon.

You feel so relaxed staying here and I would highly recommend. It is a cut above the rest in terms of service.

We loved staying here. The hosts could not have been friendlier. The quietness of the surroundings was special as we heard owls at night and other birds in the morning. The bed was the most comfortable we have experienced. The pool was perfect for our children and meeting other guests in this intimate setting was lovely. The breakfast was perfect with good coffee,fresh fruit and yogurt, hams, wonderful breads and jams and cereals our childfen loved.

This is a beautiful building in a wonderful location. We felt more like guests in Pom and Tina's house - they were so generous and friendly. Our double room was so big that 2 extra beds for the children fitted in fine. All the guests we spoke to had been there before and I can see why they get a lot of people returning. The food is fabulous, there's a serve yourself honesty bar and delicious breakfast buffet. The design of the hotel is beautiful - lots of antiques, art, stone floors, huge palms in old pots - and it's very comfortable (air con in the room is efficient and quiet). The pool is unheated and was cold in early April but the boys had fun in it nonetheless. We've stayed in a lot of posh hotels and this one out-classed them all.
