This was quite a suprise. We didn't quite know what to expect and booked it because we wanted to see El Chorro. From the other side of the gorge it looks like a rather austere box of a building which doesn't exactly draw you towards it and there's a hydro electric plant below which doesn't add to its allure. But for all that there's something about this place that makes it really unusual. The most obvious attraction is the truly spectacular view of the gorge and surrounding cliffs, which constantly colour as the sun passes. The pool area and the cafe terrace look onto this. They've clarly spent quite a lot of money refurbishing the place. Everything was in good reapair and although it's basic rather than luxurious it does have a distinctive style. Nothing more so than our room which was smartly tiled and on split levels with red LED lights embedded in the steps. The food is simple but good quality local fare - I had leg of goat (Kid) which was delicious. I think they could afford to do a bit more with the food but even so we really loved the place and would certainly go back.
