Huge rooms. Great pool. Beautifull views on the surrounding hills. Very nice food also. Special mention to the staff which is helpfull.Definitely, a very good choice if you want to visit the Cabo de Gata Area.
We liked the wild-west cortijo feel of the place - a little bit old fashioned, but in a nice way. The staff were great and we liked the quiet and the views of the desert from the private verandahs.
There could be more shade by the pool. I think the price is a little too high for the standard of accommodation. The restaurant is a bit gloomy (we didn't eat there). And I agree with earlier comments that the horses in the neighbouring paddock look neglected and under-nourished.
I like the privacy between rooms
We were not able to book any horse ridding class because it was fully, the hotel should send an email to offer classes when someone booked a room
Location and layout. This is an equestrian hotel, and has organised holidays for those that want horse holidays, which I do not. But the location is excellent and in a beautiful area of the natural park
Lack of staff. Have stayed before, and always been able to get a coffee and a drink after dinner, if out and about. They are suppose to close the door at 11pm , but at 10.15 the hotel was closed and no bar facilities available. Also only one ( very nice) staff member for breakfast, and was obviously finding it difficult to cope.
We liked the place and surroundings; staff, excellent and helpful. Very peaceful and calm. We enjoyed it a lot.
Think before booking the hotel. The hotel is perfectly good with nice internal facilities, very clean, helpful staff and acceptable food (though a little expensive). But the fifteen horses that are looked after in the grounds (which is supposed to be managed by a different company) are a disgrace to Andalusia and Spain.
Think before booking the hotel The fifteen horses that are looked after in the grounds (which is supposed to be managed by a different company) are a disgrace to Andalucia and Spain. Their condition is appalling and many are extremely weak (even though they are evidently earning good money for the owners). Chaff could be made available and is stored; but they simply don´t feed it to the poor creatures (tenth of a bale in four days for 15 working animals?). Shade could easily be provided in the intense heat; but they simply can´t be bothered to give the horses access to it. Some should obviously be retired with Kissing Spines and other obvious weakness; but they make them do four hours of hard riding in the heat. Now the hotel will `tutt, tutt` and agree with much of the above and add other issues themselves; saying “it is the horse owners issue”. It is not A. They are marketing the equitation aspect strongly in all their materials and advertising. B. They provide logistics to it such as a fork lift when required. C. They use the stables as a store area. D. They own and rent the facilities E. Management are fully aware that the Guardia are very concerned. This hotel is owned by a once proud and horse loving family with many well deserved cups and rewards from the past. The younger members of the family are obviously turning a `blind eye´ to the appalling abuse of these horses so until the horse situation is rectified think before booking the hotel. We saw several guests who were seriously upset at what they encountered and we were told the situation has persisted for two years.
