This charming former mill is located in Barriada la Joya, 9.3 mi from Torcal de Antequera. It offers an outdoor swimming pool with sun terrace, pretty gardens and elegant rooms. Lovely room's great pool area!! Nice staff breakfast was good!! very pleased they had gluten free bread for me !!! Would stay again if in that area!!
I loved the area . The staff were overall good . You need to be independent and have a car as it is miles from everywhere. Lovely area to get away from it all and relax . It needs a lot of updating and attention to details for the price .
La Joya was a very small village. We tried to find a little shop and although the locals were very friendly and helpful, our lack of Spanish let us down and we didn't understand their directions unfortunately.
Very, very little to do. The town has a couple of bars - both closed when we visited - and a shop (also closed). The roads in and out are very windy and narrow. Not really somewhere you'd seek out - stay in Antequera!
La Joya is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of Malaga. Its about 50 mins drive and I would recommend hiring a car if you can manage to drive about. there are a few places we didn't get to see like the Lobo wolf park. We did manage to visit Torcel and I would recommend this to any keen walker ( remember good footware) We went to a wedding at a hotel 6km away up the hill from us and if you want a romantic night away definitely recommend this hotel. The locals in La Joya were super friendly and really helpful with making sure we had everything we needed. We went to this local bar restaurant in the town for food at night and lunch. The portions are huge and fantastic value for money. Although make sure your hungry as they do expect you to finish your food as the chef can get upset if you don't. If you love Cava you will love the local bakery/shop where we purchased a bottle for just under £3!!
The restaurant was problematic - consider going elsewhere for lunch and evening meals. The staff are very friendly and helpful but there aren't enough of them at times so bar and restaurant service can be rather slow.
