nice area and rural type (hotel)- atmosphere - nice terrace, pleasant view, large room with rural type bathroom, good and large parking place Breakfast and coffee
nice location (starting point for walks in sierra de las nieves, 5 min walk from Istan village, yet only 20 min walk to the beach), very authentic and quiet (what a contrast to the tourist industry cast in concrete down in marbella), staff reasonably helpful. good place for people who like the real (sort of) spain away from the mainstream crowds. food wasnt exactly overwhelming. perfectly ok if you expect a relatively inexpensive, comfy and authentic place in rural spain. perhaps not the right choice if what you're looking for is a large, international hotel with all the amenities and not much of the local character.
The food was plain but excellent, as was the wine. The pool is clean, well maintained, and very good. The staff are friendly and helpful - their English is limited, but we got by. The views from the terrace are to die for. Breakfast is a little basic, but the coffee is very good The drive up to the hotel is a little difficult, but worth the effort
Wonderful hotel-even hard to count all advantages:) First of all it has a great location and wonderful views-this is a peaceful accommodation in the surrounding of beautiful mountains. Rooms designed in the typical Andalusian style are pretty spacious and very clean. There is a parking near the hotel. You definitely need a car to get there. Please note that the hotel is situated in the national park, so if you are looking for night life and parties,this not a place for you;)
We were able to our little dog with us......it was very quiet and convenient for walking and exploring the local area...there is a sauna and jacuzzi with a gym soon to be added. The breakfast was abit poor.....the resteraunt closed at 5pm but the family who ran the hotel were very pleasant and made us welcome.
We liked its location in a very cute white village and because the view from the hotel to the valley. We forced to wait above 10 minutes to any reaction from the staff while reaching the hotel. Everything was closed.Let them understand their duty to be ready for arrival of their guests who booked their staying in advance.
It's great little hotel, only 20 min from Marabela with spectacular view to the mountains and lake. Road to the hotel is not a problem at all. And hotel being on higher grounds, it was just a right temperature during the night to sleep with no a/C. Food in hotel is very good and restaurant’s terrace gives great view to the lake.
The owner waited for us till we arrive. We arrived there very late, after midnight.Room was very cosy, and beautiful view during breakfast :)))
Right in the heart of a lovely village - an ideal start to our holiday. Recommended by my brother-in-law and we would most certainly recommend it too. However no lift. 1. Very difficult to find - your website instructions totally inadequate. Signs within village sometimes concealed behind vegitation or parked vans. 2. Road to it is very narrow. Our Seat Ibiza had about four inches to spare on either side - not for large vehicles!
Very good feeling about the hotel, primarily because of the very friendly and helpful staff and the very cozy setup of the hotel and the rooms
Very nice room, great atmosphere, clean. Great value for the money. Would definetly recomend it. Wifi didn't work in our room.
hotel staff the nights noise
A great hotel with a very charming atmosphere and very hospitable staff in a small "pueblo blanco". Thank you for two nices stays!
Friendly staff, upgraded to room with terrace free. Bus from Ojén to Marbella is very irregular.
It was quiet and peaceful with a true Andalucian character. This hotel is a real gem hidden away in the narrow streets of Ojen- a beautiful place to stay away from the tourist haunts of this part of southern Spain. No. We loved it.
village setting, histric building, tastefully modernised, in character with Andalucia, polite staff Quite hard to find so suggests you should email a good(better?) map. Parking is quite cramped - not a problem but not for the faintest of hearts
Hotel is placed in a mountain with nothing and none around, nature is beautiful as well as the hotel - comfortable rooms, shared rooms and great outdoor facilities - terrace for dining and a swimming pool in a wood. Hotel also has a great restaurant and a huge variety of wines. No :)
The Location of the hotel was lovely
The location - very peaceful and quiet. Very rustic but comfortable.
peace and quiet
Friendly staff, though their approach to the job was a little eccentric at times. Fantastic location Limited menu for anything other than a short stay, although what was provided was good
The beautiful location I found the receptionist a little bit rude, she didn't show us around the hotel, just directed us to our room and didn't tell us anything about the facilities on offer.
In one word, "charm"! Very relaxed, quiet, mountain-themed charming hotel. Location is good, if you aim to stay in the mountains; otherwise, the aprox. 15 km to Marbella are covered through a mountain pass and, therefore, slower than usual. No problem with hot weather at these heights, within the surrounding "Sierra de las Nieves" mountain range. The access road is typical mountain pass: full of switchbacks and blind corners. Go slow and stay alert. As such, Marbella seems farther away that 15 km would suggest. The meals offered at the hotel are all game-themed (venison, etc.) and very expensive (the alternative is Ojen, but it's aprox. 8 km away).
The location-in the middle of the mountains.Intereting road with great panoramic view. wireless internet is NOT available
Nice setting (up in the mountains), lots of character, great for walkers and good food Rooms could've been cleaner (a few dead flies near windows), and not ideal for those with walking difficulties and who want to be close to the beach
Beautiful location in the middle of the mountains. They recommend their kitchen, but it was really poor. You'd better look for a decent meal in Marbella (15 km). They used to have gastronomy, buy we think the manangement and the cook changed lately.
