9.5 Excellent
Pros: Casa el Chorro is a fabulous property. The hosts couldn't be nicer, their hospitality very much adds to the whole experience. It's nearby to El Caminito del Rey and you can go horseback riding which is right next to Casa el Chorro. If you're planning a visit in August, make sure you book el Camino well in advance. We were foolish enough to think we could just rock on up and do the walk but it was booked out for the entire month. This area of Malaga is well worth of visit and Casa el Chorro is a perfect base to stay while exploring the area.

We had downstairs room and could sleep with the windows open for the evening breeze.
Cons: The road to the house is a little challenging at first, but after a couple of times not too bad.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: Although this is a Hostel catering mainly for climbers and walkers and our party is well into the old age spectrum and no way involved in climbing unless its up the stairs to bed we were treated the same as everyone else and made welcome by staff and guests alike, The "school like" dining room was a hive of conversation and no one was left out, whatever language they spoke, plus the food was nourishing and excellent value for money. We rented rooms that were extremely comfortable, cosy and clean but you could also rent a tent or pitch your own. Location is unbelievable and breath taking set high up in the mountains above Caminito del Rey, which was our reason for staying in the area.
Cons: Nothing could be better.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: What really stood out here was the friendliness of the staff and owners. From the moment we were collected from the train station we felt really welcome. The room was modern and clean and as soon as you stepped out the door you were treated to great views over the valley and hills beyond. The swimming pool was refreshing and the communal areas were comfortable and well thought out. Breakfast was excellent - a real treat to get fresh fruit after so many breakfasts of bread and ham in Spain! The location was good as it's closer than most other properties if you want to get up into the mountains for walking or rock climbing. It's also close to a short cut down to the village which saves a lot of time. If you don't have rucksacks then you won't be able to take the short cut when checking in or checking out. Instead arrange a lift with the owners. Leave isn't an issue as it's all downhill along the road to the village and takes about 30 minutes (without the shortcut). A very nice restaurant is about a 45 minute walk from Olive Branch but there are closer options in the village that I didn't try.

Pros: Wonderful garden an poolarea. The staff are all lovely and care taking people and uncomplicated. Good and big kitchen. Fantastic view over the mountains during day and a breathtaking sky at night.
Cons: We had a door with a glass part for light, but I would advise to change the glass part into be opened so that you can leave it open during the night instead of using the airco on a really hot summer night like we had.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Great Location to do the Comito del Rei Walk as it is only a 5 minute walk from the walking path to the start of the walk. The hotel helped us get the tickets to the walk. Staff were really friendly especially the barman and waiter in the restaurant.
Cons: Beds were a little hard and the bathrooms could do with an update.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This was an excellent location if you want to do the El Caminito del Rey hike or many other outdoor activities or even if you just want to get away from it all. It’s very quite and peaceful at night. Wonderful to walk around the dam and the lake. The area does get busier during the day when the buses come with hikers. But the hotel is across the dam and around a corner so it is still quiet. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. The restaurant was great! Pedro and the rest of the staff gave us excellent food and outstanding service. Would definitely go back for a longer stay to explore the area more.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great staff great food
Cons: Nothing
7.0 Good
Pros: The location of course. If you are doing the Caminito Del Rey, you almost have to stay here for convenience. The front desk staff was absolutely amazing. Very friendly and really cared that you had a good time. Tried to help with anything that they could. The hotel is nice until you walk into the room and it’s like stepping back in time. Very old and dark. The bed was very firm. The room was barebones, not even a hairdryer. We only stayed one night and honestly don’t think we could stay another night. It was clean though and the bathroom too. The restaurant was a bit overpriced but food was good.
Cons: Rooms need updating with brighter lighting.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: A very well located hotel - a few steps away from the lakes beaches. A quiet location with great views on the mountains. It easy to access. The breakfast menu is set yet it is tasteful. The room was big with a huge bed and the bathroom was well equipped. We had AC and a TV.
Cons: It might be difficult to find parking close to the hotel (it does have a paid option).
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Good location
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic location, loved the area, staff were wonderful.
Cons: Small thing, would have liked a kettle but I understand this is not usual for spain.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Very clean, quiet and amazing views.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: It is a very charming typical Spanish building in a breathtaking, relaxing environment. The staff was super helpful right from the start and even managed to get hold of tickets for the El Caminito del Rey hike which is almost impossible unless you know half a year in advance that you will be going (and even then you can only get the guided hikes which are interesting but mostly rushed). The hotel is only minutes away from the entrance tunnel to the hike and is very close to the lake full of options for water activity. Would definitely recommend having breakfast in the hotel as there are no shops around and is is a very good value for money. The eggs were made to perfection and topping up our water bottle wasn't a problem either.
Cons: The air-con in the room is very loud that makes sleeping very disturbed and there is no fridge in the room.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Although staff did not speak much english, they went out of their way to provide an excellent experience. The bungalows are simple and without air conditioning, which, was not at all needed as the temperature at night falls to very comfortable i.e. air conditioning not at all necessary. Between their small swimming pool and the simple but very tasty food it was the perfect place for a family stop. Thank You, we hope to be back soon.
Cons: They do very well with what they have.
