The website does not exaggerate: The hotel has a magnificent location and views from almost all rooms. While the rooms were not exactly furnished by an interior architect, they are clean, spacious and comfortable. We had room number 6 (suite) which was facing towards the mountain and the parking lot. The next time we would try to get a room facing the valley and the pool area, which would be much nicer.
The food in the restaurant was the best on our three week trip through Spain. There is maybe a little lack of attention to detail (e.g. pool chair are missing the pillows, but you are likely to find your towel still there the next morning...) This maybe due to the personal style of the hotel (you'll always see one of the three owners around and they do everything from reception to bar&restaurant with little extra help).
After all, esp.the room prices are reasonable and it is a rerally fantastic place to unwind!
