“Changed my mind about Spain!”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

Not a 'regular' to Spain, but having spent two previous Septembers in the Murcia area, decided would give Spain one more go!!! - So glad I did.................this is a jewel of a place - the hotel was fantastic from the moment we arrived - and found some little 'Spanish' cakes and a bottle of chilled water waiting for us in our spotless and large room, with king size bed and balcony.
The food 'served' rather than a buffet at dinner, was absolutely excellent, we stayed 7 nights and nothing was repeated on the menu.- the staff were brilliant, especially our waiter and the manager.
Hotel is in a quiet and beautiful location, good swimming pool - and very close to Gibraltar - thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: We had a first floor room - facing the car park, with balcony - great, we had air con so it didn...

We booked a room for 3 nights and had a very nice stay: the room was clean and a a little patio to sit outside, the surrounding is quiet, the breakfast buffet was excellent and the staff was always very helpful and friendly. There is not a lot going on around, but the castle of Castellar was a surprise experience and the drive to the coast is short.

We had a nice stay here for two days. Two adults with three children (10,8 and 4).There is a great outdoor swimmingpool, kind staff, very good breakfast buffet, clean room. The town is very quiet. If you are looking for a lot of restaurants or shops near your hotel this is not the place for you. But we had a nice stay here for two nights. Wifi only available at reception area.

We stayed for 3 nights in this beautiful hotel to celebrate our wedding! We were with a group of 26 people. The preparation of our stay was via internet and went excellent. We had hoped that everything would be okay, but it was more than okay: it was fantastic, super! The manager and staff did everything to please us and our guests: thank you! The food and drinks were delicious, the hotel and rooms are luxurious and there is a nice swimming pool and relaxation area. We would recommend this hotel definitely!!!

Recently returned from an Andalusian road trip and spent three nights at this very comfortable Hotel. I'd suggest that it is necessary to have a car at your disposal. If you have then you can look forward to exploring this delightful region of Spain. Gibraltar is within convenient striking distance. You must check out the Castello, if you do, smile for me when you look at the stunning vista from the Moors Balcony. A stroll or trek through the Cork Oak Forest is a delight in the heat of the day and even spend a pleasant evening in the local town - genuine Spain.

The breakfast spread was varied and plentiful, the staff helpful, the swimming pool bliss after a day out. We'd return!

If your interested I have repurposed a vid of stay on you tube. Check out frankiemollett.

Very helpful staff, very clean rooms, good service, good food. Hotel felt a little isolated but some beautiful walks can be found in the area. Difficult to find any maps or information on what to do in the area but if you visit the Castle speak to the shopowner (at the entrance) his wife is a guide. We saw storks, vultures, kestrals, eagles daily so great area for birdlovers.
I thinks the hotel caters more for celebrations e.g weddings and special events than the travelling tourist that is why there is no information. The celebrations going on did a great atmosphere to the hotel.Only negative was that one evening a party went on well into the middle of the night and disturbed us all. I know that the Spanish like to party late but it was too late and too loud!!
