A Mountain hotel

We stayed at this hotel to attend a wedding that was conducted there, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the views were stunning with a commanding view over the entire area. Our visit was in early February when the temperatures are very low it was between 2 to 5° when we were there. The hotel sits above the town of Tolox, the road to the hotel is a series of twisty bands climbing 290 m over 3.5 km. The food at the hotel was of good quality but rather pricey for the portion size, we soon discovered we could eat in Tolox, in the bars and restaurants where the food was equally as good but much cheaper and full of local atmosphere.

Stayed 6 nights in Feb 2018


  • Disliked: Staff & service

I was very disappointed because we booked a room with a double bed and they ony had twin beds when we arrived. They said they could never guarentee a double bed even though hotels.com had booked it. We also had a bad experience eating at their resturant. The service was extremely slow. It took half an hour to get a menu to only find out that they had a poor selection of vegetarian food. It then took nearly an hour to get served. The food tasted very nice but was very expensive. Would not eat there again. Otherwise the location was high up on a mountain side with fantastic views. The gardens were lovely and the swimming pool warm.
