We stayed 2 weeks at Arriadh Hotel and it couldn't have been better. Eduardo and Amina are the most charming hosts and pretty soon after arrival you think of them as your friends rather than hotel owners. They will prepare a tasty 3 course dinner on request which saves a trip out for dinner after a long day, although the closest restaurant, El Muelle, is less than a mile away and is also excellent. There is an honesty bar for drinks which are reasonably priced which is nice.
There are flowers everywhere - in pots on the terrace, in the public rooms and in the bedrooms and birdlife on the doorstep - Bee-eaters, Sardinian Warblers, Crested Larks ...
DON'T rely on a TomTom to get you there - mine sent me down some ridiculously churned up dirt tracks until we reached an impassable one. Follow the directions on the web site - there are small signs once you turn off the Ronda-Arriate road.
It is probably not ideal for children - the atmosphere is one of relaxed quiet which clearly suits the guests we met. It makes a great base for exploring the area (including Ronda) - in particular the countryside, walking, birds, flowers (in spring) and wildlife.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- SUNSETS & SECLUSION Blink in disbelief at the majestic views and glorious sunsets visible from this luxury six-bedroom hotel. On a hill above a picturesque Andalucian village and surrounded by beautiful vistas, the choice is yours: retreat into the hotel's peace, or trot out for Tapas? It's a toughie. LOCATION Arriadh Hotel is a brisk walk from the village of Arriate and is just 6km from the town of Ronda, which famously perches on the edge of a 100m deep canyon. Surrounded by arable farmland and with views of mountain peaks, the hotel is wrapped in landscaped terraces and, in 2015, a planned pool will complete the package. A key aspect of this hotel is that it enjoys the best of both worlds. You could easily spend a few days here and barely brush with civilisation enjoying the seclusion of the hotel and an occasional trot down the hill for local Tapas, or you could use this as a base for exploring the plethora of activities and places of interest in Ronda and its surrounding area. ... more less
