This is such a great get-away- from-it-all place . With only five rooms you are never competing for space around the pool or in the spacious grounds. Loly was so helpful, offering to do laundry for us even though it is not listed as a facility. She went out of her way to make our stay relaxing and recommended places... More

We stayed here for one night..... What a treat!,,, Perfect stop over before you get to airport. Will definitely go again. Tranquil setting!! Fantastic setting for pool and swings around..... Lovely places to have a quick drink and soak the quietness. The owners and designers got this completely right. Magical at dusk and evening

Angel and Loly are perfect hosts. Their recommendations were great and Amgel's restoration of a ruin is superb. Very comfortable, relaxing and calm. I would recommend this place and area to everyone. Thank you Angel and Loly.

We stayed two nights in May and it was wonderful. We had the panoramic room with hot tub. For a Casa Rural it was really special. Fabulous views, lovely comfortable bed and huge shower. The breakfast was excellent and you could go to the kitchen to make tea or coffee. The only thing that would have improved would have been... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed every minute! The casa rural has it all: splendid views, we had a very nice and clean room with a big terrace, we saw a beautiful sunset in the morning, had a good breakfast with plenty of choice, and the last night we had quite an amazing dinner with lots of different...

Stylish and quiet hotel which feels remote, but is very accessible. We stayed 3 nights in El Gitano with wonderful views looking down the valley. 7km drive down the track to Cala del Plomo, but a better beach is Cala de Enmedio which is a 20 minute walk from del Plomo - much cleaner and quieter and we often had...

We chose this casa rural because it looked like away from everything (and because of the jacuzzi). Before going we were advised that we would be alone, as it was low season and there were no other guests, perfect for us. We went by car (mandatory as it's a 10min drive from civilisation) and had no trouble finding it using... More

We booked 4 nights in the Almendra ( casa rural suite) to wind down after a couple of stressful months. Our GPS did not function, but we could find the case rural nonetheless in the pitch-dark of the national park. Although the casa rural normally does not serve dinner on Sunday evenings, they did organise for us dinner, even if... More

Lovely, small, quiet, modern hotel out in the countryside but not too far from Agua Amarga. You definitely need a car to get here. Really lovely surroundings, great pool, quiet gardens. We had a room called El Gitano which had a whirlpool bath and a huge window that looked out on to the countryside around. Fantastic. Beautifully furnished room with... More
