Stayed there last January for 2 nights (18th Jan 2013). We were a young couple and wanted a weekend getaway where we could explore the Sierra de Grazalema. Unfortunately, the weekend we chose was subject to a brutal storm that knocked out the electricity for most of the Saturday and also meant that it would be foolhardy to set out into the countryside, so we spent most of the weekend in the Posada where we were kept entertained by Juan (if I remember his name correctly) and his wife.
Benaocaz is tiny, but quaint and full of Andalucian character. The Posada itself is cosy and by no means luxurious, but it is clean, warm, comfortable and exudes character.
The highlight of the stay had to be the food, everything we tried (we ate there all weekend) was amazing, and cooking with care and attention (to be very cheesy, cooked with love).
The only reason I've not been back yet is because of various other trips, but I will be back and I will tell everyone who will listen that it's worth the trip for the food and hospitality.
The area is also full of walks and history, ideal for the outdoor types!
