    Fumigation had just happened to get rid of a wasp problem . Neither that process or wasps were a problem for us but can see it has been a concern in the past. Few more sachets of shampoo etc in bathroom would be good

    Beautiful rural cortijo , excellent set menu dinner. Good value for money Doesn't set itself up as 5 star venue so don't expect TVs in rooms etc. But peace and quiet , relaxation and easy access to Arcos and area. Will return soon

    Stepping into the courtyard and dining room is stepping into history! The knoll just past the pool, with the mountains to the east, is a phenomenal spot to contemplate the wonders of nature

    This place could be wonderful but needs some tlc. About 10 half dead wasps in room on arrival on beds and floor. Loose fittings in bathroom. Room price was acceptable but the meal costs were high for the food provided.

    Wonderful situation. Interesting old cortijo. Swimming pool. We quite enjoyed ourselves even allowing for a few problems.

    The cortijo was absolutely stunning, and was like a dream come true in the Spanish countryside. I absolutely loved staying in an ancient country house and olive mail from the 1750s; every detail about the hotel was original and authentic and was like taking a step back in time. I love it and I will be back.....

    We stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage.The terrace outside was lovely,but spoiled by some strange concrete table and stools which were not at all comfortable.

    The location was perfect.Very peaceful but only a 10 minute drive into Arcos.

    The place was stunning. Staff friendly. Our room was clean with great water pressure in the shower. Toilet flush was a bit light :/ We were put in a room with two beds, although larger than singles they weren't big enough for a couple and the squeaked on light movement. Dogs are an extra 7€ per night each. Staff were lovely. The view was to die for. excellent. I loved the place Will be back for a stay with a double bed!!!
