Pros: Our stay was very great! Delicious food and comfortable room! We truly recommend it!
Pros: friendly staff
Cons: cold bathroom
Pros: Great food and welcoming hosts
Pros: Very comfortable and cosy room, nice view and delicious breakfast.
Pros: Nice, clean room with balcony and beautiful view. Delicious breakfast and the best dinner in Andalusia.
Cons: Everything was great
Pros: Everything was absolutely perfect. Beautiful accommodation and location. The best food and service. Made so welcome and all was faultless.
Cons: Nothing - all was fantastic. 10 out of 10
Pros: Get away from it all! No crowds, no shops, just enjoy the countryside and views.
Cons: Not a negative, just a reminder that this hotel is in a small mountain village. Tight highway roads and even tighter village roads. Alpandeire population 150!
When you stay at Los Castaños- Adults Only in Cartajima, you'll be in the mountains and 9 minutes by car from Sierra de las Nieves. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and multilingual staff.
Pros: Los Castanos is a rare find. I went for a 4 day solo hiking holiday and it was perfect in all respects. Di and John are such friendly and knowledgeable hosts and made me so welcome. The place is beautifully appointed and my room exceeded my expectations. I had dinner at Los Castanos on 3 of my 5 nights and it was lovely food with great company. John is such an unassuming and modest host - about the nicest guy I've met in such a situation. Overall I'd rate this as the most enjoyable booking.com trip I've done in the last decade. Such a great place!
Cons: It's hard to find anything to fault Los Castanos itself but the village of Cartajima is pretty small and isolated and it might not suit everyone. I had dinner in the local bar on one night and it was fine. However, the so-called village "shop" has almost no basic provisions e.g. hiking food etc, so I had to rely on the generosity of Di and John for some hiking sandwiches etc. The nearest big place is Ronda (20 km) and I'm not sure everyone would enjoy a late night drive from there after dinner. On the other hand, there are great local hikes from the village and John is extremely knowledgeable about where to go etc. So if you want to escape the hordes of tourists in Ronda and don't mind a bit of solitude and quiet, it's fine.
Pros: Breakfast was included and saved us time. Food was great. We also had dinner at the hotel several times and the food was delicious. My mom is a vegetarian and Di the owner made sure to take that into account. Both Di and her partner John, were super friendly and very interesting to talk to, as were the other guests who stayed at the hotel during our stay. The hotel is cozy and has a lot of character. Cartajima is a beautiful small town. We used it as our home base for our daily road trips. It was definitely nice to come back to some peace and quiet after a full day of sight seeing. Overall a wonderful experience!
Cons: Not applicable.
Pros: Basically, we liked everything. :) Di and John are charming and very interesting hosts, we spent a lovely evening chatting with them, sat in front of a warm and inviting fireplace sipping a delicious copa de tinto; Di is an excellent cook, we enjoyed our dinner very much and she was gracious enough to give me her recipe for the yummy salmon dish she cooked up for us in no time; the 'hotel' is beautifully and charmingly decorated and located in a most beautiful village in magnificent countryside. What more could one wish for?
Cons: Hmmmmmm, can't think of anything really.
Pros: I really liked the room decor which is not creation of chance and in the same time is cozy and not from ikea calatofue. I also admired the view from the window. The owners were nice and kind, they helped us finding a parking slot and gave recommendations for visiting Ronda.
Cons: Finding the address when driving narrow streets of the town might be challenging. Definitely ask hotel owners for help.
Pros: This is a very delightful and well located bed and breakfast. The area is so beautiful and quiet. The town is lovely and well tended. The hotel has wonderful moroccan influenced decor, terrific breakfasts and dinners, comfortable beds and various relaxing spaces to hang out and enjoy. Di and John provide the perfect balance of helpfulness and care, yet allowing for private space and time to relax.
Pros: loved it - owners are just lovely, breakfast was outstanding. Very homely place.
Cons: Possibly a tad overpriced given the location
Pros: The location is lovely, you are in the middle of a beautiful white village with a great view. The room is quite big with a cosy little balcony. The terace is perfect for having a coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. Breakfast is delicious with local food and good variety. I loved the silence and actually not hearing any noise as you are far away from the national road. There is a little bar near the hotel where locals meet and you can enjoy a glass of wine, a beer or some tapas. The hotel doesn’t have private parking, but there are plenty of parking spots 1 min walk away from the hotel. The hosts are very kind and very helpful, they can recommend you nearby places to visit. I definitely recommend the hotel for an authentic andalusian experience.
Cons: There isn’t a single thing I can think of.
Pros: This is lovely hotel with a few rooms. Rooms are well decorated and colorful, and feel like Mediterranean style. Breakfast was served by the hosts and it was nice.
Pros: Di is a superb cook. We had a great and interesting stay. We got great directions to Ronda (not to be missed). The village is very nice. A great stay in Andalucía!
Pros: This was a return visit after five years and it is still an unspoiled oasis. Di and John were very welcoming and we were immediately at home. We were extremely lucky with the weather and were able to enjoy a leisurely G&T on the roof terrace. Our evening meal and breakfast were excellent. A great place for a short break.
Cons: The only thing not like was leaving.
When you stay at Hotel Bandolero in Juzcar, you'll be in the mountains and 13 minutes by car from Sierra de las Nieves. Featured amenities include multilingual staff, luggage storage, and a library. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours).
Pros: Easy to find. Spacious rooms and the hosts were friendly.
Cons: No air conditioning so room was hot at night. Pool area needed attention as a bit scruffy.
Pros: The bed is awesome. Slept like a baby.
Pros: The room was very nice. Loved the blue color on curtains and bed and you were able to get the room completely dark for the night. Lovely hosts. Let us sit and drink our own cava, we always bring with us, on the restaurant terrace after closing. The food was excellent
Cons: The only minus was the very hot room during nighttime (we visited the hotel in August so that was expected). They provided a fan in the room but we also brought with us an additional fan but still too hot. Air condition in the room and it would be absolutely great.
Pros: Comfortable and peaceful suite with good heating options - required for the rather cold and wet weekend we go. The food in the restaurant was excellent - it was eating here a couple of months ago that made us decide to book for the weekend.
Cons: Like many hotels, they have a sign in the bathroom inviting guests to place towels needing replaced in the bath and to hang up towels to be reused. On the first day we placed one very wet towel in the bath and hung up the others. When we returned from a day's cycling and walking, the wet towel had simply been hung on the rail still soaking. The second day it wouldn't have mattered what we did - no-one bothered to go in to the room. The restaurant seems to be open in the evenings for the convenience of the owners rather than the guests and we never felt very welcome to have a drink in the bar in the evening. Overall there was a rather frosty atmosphere in the hotel - we could hear the owners arguing in the kitchen at breakfast one morning.
Pros: Wonderful hosts and great cooks. Homemade bread, jams etc. Great place to stay to explore the local countryside and easy to visit Ronda.
Pros: Lovely friendly people; they even opened the restaurant for us on their day off. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced - dinner and breakfast were both excellent. Comfortable room and a good shower. A pretty little garden area which was shady and cool.
Cons: We didn't like the green "safety night light" in the bedroom. We couldn't turn it off and it was too bright for us.
Pros: Authentic local business, the owners run the place by themselves. Very friendly and welcoming reception. Nice breakfast with local produce. Wonderful surroundings. A perfect location for a day trip to Ronda.
Cons: Sound proofing of rooms is not fantastic, but this was mainly an issue due to the extremely noisy people in the room next to us.
Pros: The hotel was quaint and peaceful.
Cons: There was nothing we didn’t like.
Pros: Quirky hotel in a quirky village- loved it!! Highly recommend a visit and a stay here. Breakfast was great especially the homemade marmalade.
Pros: It was an unexpected treat to be in a village, away from the tourist crowds one tends to join while traveling. David and Ivan were wonderful hosts, offering much insight into the countryside and village. We had a wonderful lunch on the shaded patio and enjoyed the terrace to watch the sunset.
Cons: There was nothing we didn’t like.
Located in Parauta, Casas de Parauta is in a rural location, within a 15-minute drive of Sierra de las Nieves and Puerta de Almocabar. Featured amenities include luggage storage and laundry facilities.
Pros: Lovely Environment, secluded area
Cons: Very poor value for money. Cleanliness needs much improvement.
Pros: Lovely place in the "middle of nowhere" in a good way with a wonderful view from the window. Strongly suggest to anyone who is looking for a peace and calm place to relax from the city buzz.
Cons: Swimming pool showed in the photos is a municipality pool, it is for free, but be aware of the opening times, it might be closed.
Pros: Peaceful place in the middle of the mountain. No tourism and mainly local people. Very convenient the village swimming pool with free access and the chiringuito. nice house, you really feel like a local and that is what we were looking for. 15 mins driving from Ronda, it is a good option to visit Ronda day time and then go back to a quiet place. Nice temperature in August to enjoy after the main Andalusian cities' tour.
Cons: A bit more explanation of the surroundings from the owner would have helped deciding what to do. The only restaurant of the village in August is closed, therefore the only option is the chirunguito at the pool. Nice and cheap tapas though. There is no market or shop so bring food and drinks with you before arriving. The closest supermarket is in Ronda. The shower should be fixed.
Pros: The town is really cute and close to Ronda (our destination), fantastic for kids running around and with a bar restaurant always open for breakfast, dinner, etc The house was very cute, a bit cold when we arrived but Ana was helpful and brought us extra heaters. The bedding was nice and clean and the showers were great.
Cons: Needs a bit work on getting the doors tight so cold air does not get through.
Pros: We loved everything about the place. The hostess Ana was very friendly, kind and extremely helpful and made our stay very welcoming. The town was very peaceful and clean and the views are beautiful. Will definitely go again.
Cons: The restaurant was a bit pricey for such a small town
Pros: Beautiful village in the mountains. Nice community swimming pool.
Cons: Casas the Parauta has several houses in Parauta. We stayed at house nr. 12. The house has a mold problem. Is smells, the plaster comes from the walls, it is not clean. Dark house, no garden or balcony. Casas the Parauta has several nice houses on the website. This is certainly not one of them. Based on the website you expect something different. Very disappointing accommodation.
