Lovely hotel hiden away in a quiet corner of the village of Benaojan.Gardens and pool area beatuifully laid out lots of diferaint areas to relax in .Rooms very good and kept spotlessly clean but mybe lacking that small personel touch.Staff at reception very friendly and helpful.Breakfast very good with the bonus of hot dishes every day .Taking lunch and dinner on the terrace beside the river was a very pleasant experience food and service always of the highest standard.A very relaxing place to be.

We have just returned from a 10 day stay at Molino del Santo,
this was after a 9 year absence. Why did we leave it so long?
It is a haven of peace and relaxation.
The staff are really superb , knowledgeable and friendly and do all they can to make your stay enjoyable. Reception staff have always got time to speak to you and are thoroughly professional, whilst being approachable and sociable.

The rooms are spotlessly clean and the grounds and pool are maintained to an extremely high level, There is constant cleaning of all pool equipment which is reassuring.

The standard of dining is way beyond what you would expect. The menu is varied and uses local produce to excellent effect.
The waiting staff are superb, and so are the chefs. We have already booked for next year and cannot wait to return.

Thank you Molino for such a wonderful holiday.

18 years since our first visit (when we loved this hotel) we have finally made it back again and find it even better than before. We particularly love the many different spaces you can just sit and enjoy your stay, whether by the beautiful pool, in the shade in the garden, under a loggia, or on your own private terrace. Our suite of two rooms, one above the other, was perfect.
Service is excellent, friendly and inobtrusive.

You won't starve here, with half board including afternoon tea and cake and excellent breakfasts.

Even the teenagers love it. Hope to go back soon, maybe in a cooler season with walking boots.

Had another fantastic stay at Molino this August. We just can't keep away!! Very pretty small hotel with lovely pool, garden and terrace. You immedately feel welcome as soon as you arrive. Each room is different and all are well laid out and very clean. The restaurant serves fabulous food with many local dishes as daily specials. The Sangria is some of the best I have tasted. We would not hesitate in recommending Molino as the perfect holiday destination. "Olivers"

We found a high recommendation in the guide for special and beautiful places to stay in Spain. But we had never expected it to be this lovely.

arranged our seventh holiday in Molino del Santo (this time 7 days) after a two year break, with a little trepidation - could it be as good this time ? Will the food be as good? Will the staff be the same? We needn't have worried because the hotel simply do what they do best - look after you as no other hotel in this price bracket do!

The comfort of the rooms & the facilities are matched only by the attitude of all the staff, simply a joy to be staying there!

Anyone requiring a stress busting break need look no further, our only concern is that too many people will latch on to this hotel and make it more difficult for our own selfish needs in future!
