The 5-star Hotel Villa Padierna Thermas is set in an historic boutique building now completely restored and traces its roots to the early 1800’s. A guesthouse was built between 1830 and 1832 to host a visit of King Fernando VII of Spain. Word soon spread of the therapeutic effects of the baths and mineral spring waters and members of Europe’s aristocracy quickly made Carratraca their personal retreat. The hotel was at the height of fashionable travel in the 19th century when it attracted such famous visitors as Lord Byron, Rainer Maria Rilke and Empress Marie Eugenie, wife of Napoleon III among others. Now stunningly refurbished, keeping the historical beauty of this neo-classical building, guests can have a great experience for the first time in a historical setting. On their arrival they will have a warm welcome in the cozy lobby of the Hotel, they will enjoy the light and the sun in our Andalusian patio and will discover antiques and art works every corner. At Villa Padierna Thermas Hotel, luxury and history meet to provide our guests a very unique experience.
Pros: The view and the tranquility! The spa and the whole setting,
Cons: The food has become to 'healthy'... Who cares about calories which on top are not correctly calculated... Introduce a healthy alternative and a real dinner alternative...
Pros: The restaurant is calorie counted, although very tasty. The staff were very helpful.
Cons: The fact that we felt like the only people in the hotel. There were only another two people in the restaurant on one evening.
