“Definitely stay here if visiting Ronda”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

About 10km out of Ronda, set in beautiful countryside. We booked based on others positive reviews and were not disappointed. We were upgraded to a junior suite which was very comfortable, an added bonus was 2 sinks in the bathroom - so his and hers! Angela who was multi-tasking at reception, and in the dining room, could not have been more helpful or charming, as were all the staff we encountered, The swimming pool at the bottom of the fabulous gardens (full of fruit trees, roses, and lavender) is lovely - sun loungers on grass surrounded by white walls, 360 degree views of hills and mountains. Temperature of pool v pleasant and a good pool to exercise in too. We ate in the restaurant both nights, excellent food and good value for 3 courses at ca 24 euros, plus around 20 euros for wine from the bodega next door. Breakfast good but expensive.

Suggestions for improvements perhaps - real ground, rather than instant, decaffeinated coffee would have been good at breakfast; providing details in the room of how to access wifi, where the pool is situated, list of tv channels would be helpful. in addition a better reading light over 1 side of the bed, and a world news channel on the tv.

However, we hope that others enjoy their stay as much as we did - it made our weekend very special as it was my husband's birthday.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to room 12; it seemed dark but it stayed cool so was a bonus.

If you are planning a roadtrip trough Andalusia this one should be added. The hotel is really different, due to the fact it is in a rural area. This gives it a laid back atmosphere, that is really nice during the trip.

A GPS must not be used to go here, we tried our tomtom and got somewhere, but not to the hotel. Please use information given by the hotel or booking site.

Due to the fact is located on a sand road, that takes you quite some time, it is best to eat at the hotel. They have some nice food and you have much more time to relax.

We celebrated our wedding at the Molino de Arco and I could not have been happier. I am so impressed with this little charming hotel and the people working there. The place is just stunning and they gave the already impressive garden some extra work for the wedding which gave us a fairy tale location. The restaurant is lovely and the food fantastic, there is a little bar with fresh cake and drinks and the whole place feels like a family home. I have hardly come across a place with so much personality and care for detail and most important if small problems or complaints arose they were directly addressed and solved in the most pleasant manner. Our guest (we rented the whole hotel) were greeted and treated with so much attention.

I travel a lot and have been to many nice hotels but the Molino del Arco is my absolute favorite and I surely will be back! For holidays or events and absolute 10 out of 10.

Room Tip: all lovely, my favorite one is room 18 but I also like the suite 9 and 1 as well as the small rooms...

We spent six nights at this wonderful hotel, about fifteen minutes drive to outskirts of Ronda. It is a nature lovers delight, we spent time hill walking and bird watching alongside trips in to Ronda. Spring flowers fill the fields which are gorgeous and make excellent backdrop to thecalls of the cuckoo. We were lucky enough to recieve an upgrade on our room which meant enjoying three floors! The rooms were tasteful and the bed so comfortable, the roof terrace was the perfect spot for star gazing. All in all an excellent retreat.

Room Tip: All unique and full of character

I have stayed at Molino del Arco twice and was blown away each time. There are plenty of signs on the narrow roadway leading to the hotel and, if you follow them, the hotel greets you at the end of the road. As you pass through the arched gateway, you enter a truly magical place. The spacious rooms have interesting architectural details and antique armoires. The gardens are so peaceful with the sound of water trickling through the irrigation channels. We loved the lounge with honor bar and spent many an evening on the back terrace enjoying the cool night air. We visited the near by bodega one evening and were given a private tour and tasting.

Had a fantastic couple of days at this hotel. We were upgraded on arrival which was a nice touch to a suite. Room was clean, well equiped but retained its rustic quirkiness. Nice pool at the end of the gardens, gardens a little run down but not really an issue for us.

You will need a car to stay here as it is well off the main road, but that was part of the off the beaten track attraction.

Would highly recommend for couples and small groups of friends.

Excellent location, nice garden and nice swimming pool. Must be great during summer months, but we didn't really enjoy it mid-October. Although the garden is still nice to see we really would not recommend the rooms in the gardens. We had a junior suite, so lots of space but this couldn't compensate the smell of mold & humidity. We suppose that smell came from the wooden beams but could also see that there must have been humidity issues with the walls. Our friend had the room next to ours and had similar issues although not that much.
Positive points are the professional staff, the excellent dinners and nice lobby. However this couldn't really compensate our frustrations about the lacking freshness in the rooms.
If you can obtain a room in the main building this could certainly be an excellent stay, since we saw one of the rooms while room service was busy and it looked very nice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main building (or maybe one of the first rooms around the patio in the garden...
