My wife and I enjoyed eight nights stay at the Hotel la Casa ,19th - 27th February 2012, and can only endorse the good comments recorded in the various Tripadvisor reviews that steered us here in the first place.
Neil, Sarah and Karen were convivial hosts, both attentive and helpful as regards making our stay a happy one. They have obviously put a great deal of time and effort into creating a home and hotel business that will appeal to many particularly perhaps those wishing to get away from the razamatazz of the costas. We were the sole residents for several nights and enjoyed the use of the terrace with its fine views up the valley to the mountains in the distance. A fine place to enjoy the morning sunshine with a good book. Sky TV, comfy bed, clean modern room and bathroom / w.c. en suite, tea & coffee making facilities and an honesty bar all contributed to our enjoyment. Excellent continental breakfasts and good dining on the three evenings that we dined in the restaurant. WiFi facilty downstairs was a blessing for keeping in touch as needed, and use of in-house PC to reprint lost boarding card a bonus!
Torrox is a traditional spanish town with ample cafe / tapas bar venues in the main plaza and is a good base to explore the hinterland from with its majestic scenery and alternative restaurant venues. Frigiliana well worth a visit with a round trip via Canillas de Albada and Sayalonga. Granada and the Alhambra is only a leisurely 90 minute drive and Cuevas de Nerja is just along the coast with the temptation of a leisurely lunch in Nerja afterwards where our hosts recommendation of Maria Bonita's restaurant was an excellent choice.
Eight days of temperate sunshine with excellent value environs all in all a great out of season delight.
Thank you Neil, Sarah and Karen for an excellent holiday break. We will return . . .
Hotel arrival tip in Torrox - ignore your satnav, travel down from top and after meandering your way down to where the two way road widens, there is a Pastelaria cafe on your right and obscured signs including a purple background one directing you sharp left to the church and Plaza, follow this one way route through the plaza until you come to a controlled access street to the left where the hotel is located. The "Yellow/Ochre" free car park once you have deposited your luggage is a further approx. 400 yard further up the street.
