A group of 13 of us stayed here two nights and we all loved it. It is perched on the hill quite far above the town of Tolox with wonderful vistas of the town and the surrounding hills and landscapes - great sunrises. Very relaxing atmosphere and lovely patio and pool, though you really need a car to get to...

Friendly staff, great food, stunning views and a place that instantly feels like home. This sums up what our stay was all about and it was exactly what we needed. We checked-out this morning, but already miss it! We'll be back!

We stayed two nights at this mountain hotel next to the beautiful natural park. We had room number 13 with the coolest view - it's really top notch just needs an upgrade on the bed (very hard) and decor in the room to get five stars from us. The restaurant cooks splendid food at very reasonable prices! And the people...

Beautiful views and incredible food. We enjoyed the set menu, at €40 per person for 6 courses. Each course was beautifully presented. I unfortunately have some awkward dietary requirements which the staff helped with effortlessly. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Stayed two nights here in a very cool wet spell so really didnt make the most of the views thought even in the wet we enjoyed short walks in the hills around the hotel with only birdsong breaking the silence. Thankfully the hotel was a great place to hang out in bad weather with wood-burners in the dining room and...

Parador on a beautiful spot. Wonderful restaurant but just take the diner. The entree plus diner is much to much. Dessert very special. Very friendly staff. Spa and sauna not included but very nice anyway. Tolox belongs to the most beautiful villages in Spain but that we couldn't discover. Not a really or special village. There are more villages around...
