I stayed for three nights in this magical place; it is the realized vision of Charo - a one-time impressario in the Madrid entertainment scene who decided to say goodbye to that life and build this place in beautiful Agua Amarga. The setting is incredible - set in a few acres within the a protected park, you feel privileged to be there. The property is dotted with houses which provide enough privacy for guests while enjoying the grand views of the desert. (The infinity pool overlooks a desert valley floor where shepherds and their flock pass by - very cool and charming.)
It is not for those who want to stay in a generic five-star hotel. It is for those seeking a special experience in an idyllic setting. The Almeria region (especially this part within the nature reserve) is thankfully devoid of crass commercialism. Quaint fishing villages and beaches with restaurants and (quiet) bars are just minutes away for day trips.
Most highly recommended. Thank you Charo (the most interesting and lovely person anyone could meet).
