    Amazing place. Very relaxed and quiet atmosphere which is a good break from big tourist cities like Granada or Sevilla. Staff are friendly, helpful and work really hard to make your stay perfect. Would be back any time!

    The bath could be little bit more clean. But I cleaned by myself after arriving and it was fine. Poor wi-fi connection but it es small detail.

    The rooms are very quiet, realy any noice, the whole hotel is perfect to relax, nice pool with amazing view. 5 min. to the city and sea (by car). Perfect, will come again.

    It is not very well maintained - some of the fittings and furnishings seem tired and tatty.

    It's a charming hotel, in a quiet spot, set in a very atmospheric cactus garden. Friendly staff.

    Possibly a bit expensive for time of year

    This property is situated in a very tranquil position with extensive outdoor space and loads of nooks and crannies to hide away and enjoy the scenery Unfortunately we were not able to take advantage of these facilities for the three nights we stayed due to the cold weather and very high winds The spacious room however was warm and welcoming with a comfortable bed adequate linen and fluffy towels We stayed for the evening meal as most eating places are quite a distance away and closed for the season We were the only residents but breakfast was adequate with a good selection to choose from We were shown some of the other accommodation and may return later in the year when the weather improves and there are more guests

    Only one thing (not to do with the hotel) but Booking .com directions! The directions should be as follows. Off the main road take a right turn towards Agua Armarga, about 1.8 Kim's mlles down the road look at a (sort of )crossroads for the sign Los Molinos (not - relais du silence) take a left turn and almost immediately you will see Los Molinos!!!!!!!!

    It absolutely lived up to its name Relais du Silence. It was a wonderful relaxing break. We had been in the area 3 years ago and stayed in a little hotel not too far away,but this little place beat it hands down! Wonderfully perfect!

    This hotel was pure tranqulity! It's very beautiful, the staff were so lovely and helpful, breakfast was sublime, the pool was great (and has a fabulous view of the surrounding landscape), the room was cool, well equipped and clean. The hotel restaurant in the evening was also really good and really reasonable. My favourite thing about this hotel was all the nooks and crannies with seats and shade where you can get away and just relax, there are only a few guests and there was a real sense of privacy. The surrounding beaches are wonderful, we had some great snorkelling. I highly recommend this hotel and I would go back in a heartbeat.

    A fabulous find - and somewhere we will definitely go back to. Wonderful conversion of old buildings which retain character but have all mod cons. Lovely to have a lounge room with a log fire, sofas and open bar to relax in on a cold winter's night. Fantastic power shower to warm you up too. Amazing views, especially the stars at night. Tucked away but actually on the main road so easy to find and very easy to get to Agua Armaga, Rodalquilar and other places nearby. Huge gardens to wander, with well-thought out spaces to sit and relax.

    The staff were very unhelpful, they didn't give any suggestions to us and did not have any disposability. They were only at the hotel for arrival and departure time. Furthermore the breakfast wasn't as good as commented by other guests, it was pretty poor.

    The place was beautiful and the atmosphere was great!
