I loved this hotel. Jacobo and Andreas made us so welcome. The place was spotlessly clean, the food was lovely and the service was wonderful. I really found it very peaceful and relaxing. Not really suitable for children . We will go again.

This is a restaurant/hotel that has in recent years had a checkered history. Originally very popular with Brits in the area and tourists, it suffered from marital difficulties experienced by the Italian owners. Locals were delighted when it was taken over by a young couple who seemed keen to restore the restaurant (I cannot speak of the hotel as I... More

Had a lovely family meal. Staff are very friendly, with excellent service, and very tasty food - typical Spanish recipes. Very reasonable prices too. I enjoyed the iberico, and the chicken with Gorgonzola and walnuts was good according to my daughter!

This is a review of the restaurant at this hotel. We ate there twice during a week's stay in the area. It was a welcome change from the usual Spanish eateries as the food on offer is more Mediterranean style. I am vegetarian and really struggle with Spanish food, but here they offer a couple of pasta dishes and starters... More

The hotel is a small family run rustic hotel set in lovely tranquil grounds with stunning views over the surrounding countryside. The are large grounds with 15m private pool. The evening meal was wonderful and I... More

If you're in the area definitely pop in for dinner, it's a Michelin star restaurant and therefore, the food is amazing! We went here 3 times and couldn't get enough! The waiters were amazing and friendly and couldn't do enough for you and the food was out of this world. Recommendation - try the aubergine dish for starters, you will... More

Having a holiday home close by we were regulars at the restaurant La Paloma but had not tried it since new owners took over 18 months ago. Surprisingly perhaps the menu remains intact, at least most of the dishes are the same, although there are changes and additions. The food is of reasonable quality and I would not complain about...

We found the hotel to be excellent value for money. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The bedrooms are of a rustic style and the bed was comfortable. The food is excellent and, although a little bit price, there is a good choice on the menu.

We'd made a note to visit again this April after having a meal there last summer while we were staying in the area and loving it. It didn't disappoint - as a vegetarian in Spain my choice is somewhat limited, but the fresh tomato soup and the ravioli were delicious. I don't know why, but seeing them pick the sage... More

We stayed four days half board in this newly owned hotel restaurant by two very friendly gentlemen, the rooms are rustic but comfortable, the general look is agreeable, the pool is closed off season, the lobby is agreeable and inviting.

“For my husband and myself the beds were a little too firm and so were the pillows. However, we did not ask for softer pillows and these probably would have been provided. The en-suite was good and so was the aircon”
