Follow the instructions from the hotel and you can find this place easily, although it is a 20 minute drive outside of Ronda. The building and gardens are gorgeous. The receptionist, Christina, was friendly, helpful and very proficient. The lounge and all the rooms are decorated and furnished to a high standard and the view from our room (17) was just perfect. We stayed for dinner on the first night - 3 courses for €26 - and whilst not exceptional, it was still very good and worth the money. If you want some peace and tranquility whilst being well looked after then this place is highly recommended

Great base for exploring Ronda once you've found it- we too had trouble with the GPS details. Simple instructions ie the turning for the hotel is on the 374 Ronda to Seville road, just northwest of Ronda, at the km 26 turn off then follow the signs for 3kms

Beautiful hotel - would agree with all the previous reviews. Very welcoming for our dogs too!

i found the receptionist, Christina, extremely helpful- not just in helping us find the hotel as we had come in to Ronda from the opposite side and the GPS was a bit 'lost'- but also took the time to show us around the hotels' lovely premises, to show us the room etc. Also any information requested about Ronda itself ( the feria and the bullfights, times of masses, places to visit were given off hand- probably better and quicker than at the local tourist office). A nice detail was a bottle of good wine waiting for us in the room as a welcome gesture. The rest of the staff was helpful, present but not in the way or disturbing the tranquillity as it happens in some places.Our meal in the evening in the gardens was really astonishing- we took the set menu and had our tastebuds really spoiled. Well worth the trip for this reason alone. This secluded place in the tranquil countryside made this an excellent place to relax and chill out- only sounds to be heard were birds and the bells of the goats . Could it be more buccolic? It is a place we will visit again for sure.

Converted from an old farmhouse, Molino del Arco is in a peaceful rural setting just 15 minutes drive from Ronda. We found it very easily by following the directions emailed to us by the hotel. It has large gardens and a lovely pool set into a lawn, with views over the surrounding countryside. Our room was very spacious with a great Arabic style walk-in shower although it would benefit from being re-decorated as the wall paper was bubbled in areas. The upstairs breakfast room has a great view across the cobbled courtyard area. Buffet breakfast was a very good selection, with hot breakfast made to order. We found the dinner to be very average and after the first night we drove into Ronda where there are a wide variety of good restaurants. The bar, with a wide variety of drinks, is open all hours and run on an 'honesty' basis - visitors write down what they have on a clipboard on the bar. All the staff we spoke to during our stay were most helpful. A car is a must here as it's well off the beaten track. Not suitable for those looking for hustle and bustle but great for those of us who appreciate peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings.

We stayed at Molino Del Arco for three nights because it was ideally placed for us in the countryside north of Ronda. It allowed us to easily visit Ronda without too much fuss and gave us ready access to the attractions in the surrounding countryside, which are many. It also has a nice big pool, which in summer is a big plus! If you arrive by day, the hotel is easy enough to find when driving north from Ronda on the highway to Seville. The key thing is not to worry about the distance gauge in your car, but take note of the distance markers on the right hand side of the road, every kilometre as you head away from Ronda. When you see the one marked 26, you should immediately take the side road off to the right. This road turns into a lane as it twists and turns to the east. As you keep driving, you will encounter fairly frequent signs pointing onwards to Molino Del Arco. Eventually, it turns into a dirt track, just before you reach the white walls of the hotel. The hotel is very nicely appointed, including classy art work and with lovely gardens. We were upgraded to a suite with a lovely view of the countryside, so we were very comfortable. (Internet access was best from the seating area, not the bed) Unless you are out travelling you will probably eat at the hotel. Breakfast was charged extra and I thought was more expensive than most other places we stayed in Spain, considering it was not very different from what we had been served elsewhere. On the other hand, dinner served in the garden was I thought, something special provided you ordered the 3 course option. Serves were not big and the price was more like for a restaurant meal in Australia but I thought the cooking was wonderful with a level of refinement and sophistication we had not tasted very often during this trip. Three cheers to the cooks! My only other observation rather than a complaint was that there was a stuffiness about the guests which made me feel a little uncomfortable. I like bed and breakfasts because people like to chat and share stories. Here people kept to themselves, to the point of whispering and with only minimal acknowledgements. Strange, perhaps it depends on the clientele at the time. Aside from these quibbles, Molino del Arco is a very pleasant and civilized place to stay in the country near Ronda and I would recommend you consider it.
