Finca La Guzmana
Ranked #34 of 40 Hotels in Ronda
Reviewed 29 July 2009

I had a peaceful and relaxing stay here in early June. About once a year, I manage to steal just a few (in this case, four) days away from both work and small children. Since this time is so rare, I always want to make the most of it.

For the most part, Finca La Guzmana was just what I was looking for: small, quiet, beautiful setting - the perfect place to just get away from everything for a little while. I loved breakfast (I sure ate enough of it), and especially Peter's special recipe fruit compote. I really really (did I say really?) appreciated being able to use the large and fully equipped kitchen to prepare my own meals - the combination of being on my own and not wanting to eat dinner as late as the Spanish typically do made this facility especially valuable. Peter keeps the kitchen well-stocked with reasonably priced wine, beer, liquor and non-alcoholic beverages - you can serve yourself and note your consumption in a notebook for payment upon check-out.

My room was more than comfortable, and the refrigerator and coffee making facilities in the room were much appreciated. Ronda is an incredibly beautiful town - I would return in a heartbeat - next time with my family. Just outside the town there are a lot of great places to go hiking and biking - they were what attracted me to the area, and they did not disappoint.

Peter let me borrow one of his bicycles - I appreciated his generosity, but before coming I had expressed to him how much I wanted to go biking. In this light, and since I only get one vacation like that one per year - I would have preferred that he help me to arrange to have a good, all-terrain, ready for anything bicycle - I would have preferred to pay for that rather than make do with the one he had on offer (the gears changed only with difficulty, making it impossible to take the bike up any serious hills, thus seriously limiting my biking possibilities - that is, seriously limiting one of the very reasons I was there).

Finca La Guzmana has a large outdoor swimming pool in a beautiful setting. However, the pool is not heated, and when I was there in early June the water was too cold to swim in it. I tried - I really did - but each time after 10 minutes (or less) I simply had to get out. Because the swimming pool factored largely in my decision to stay there, this (together with the bicycle), was also a disappointment to me.

I would, and probably will, go back to Finca La Guzmana. However, the next time: (i) I will take my family (particularly comforted in the knowledge that there is a refrigerator and I'll have access to the kitchen), (ii) I will rent bicycles - in good condition - for all of us, and (iii) we will go only during a time when we will know that the water in the pool will be warm enough for swimming.

A beautiful place to stay in Andalusia. A real hacienda with beautiful swimming pool, surrounded by olives trees. We stayed in the pretty family room with our 2 children (9 and 11). The spot is perfect to visit beautiful Ronda (only 4 km). The breakfast are good but compare to other bed and breakfast in Andalusia they are ordinary. The frig is full of wine, juice, popsicle, beer....All for a small fee.....The kitchen, that you can use to cook meals is wonderful.

Finca La Guzmana is a superbly-run B&B a little way outside Ronda and about 1 hour's drive from Marbella. The B&B is set in a typical rural setting surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. Claire & Peter make everyone feel as though they are part of the family and Claire's attention to detail and constant attention to your every need make you feel very much 'at home'. The maid even ironed all our laundry, without being asked, and without expecting payment - now THAT is service! The breakfasts are fantastic and set you up for the day. The pool is large and a perfect temperature. A well-stocked wine cellar and honesty book system ensure that you can access very good and competitively-priced local wines should you need one and the refrigerator is always full of beer, juices and cold water. The rooms are roomy and well-provisioned. Ronda itself is a place not to be missed by anyone wanting to delve into Spanish history and the views from the old town and in particular the old bridge are fantastic. We look forward to returning.
