Hacienda Minerva is a delightful place to stay. The owners are doing an oustanding job of converting this hacienda into a charming inn. The owners and staff are friendly and the food is great. The surrounding area is beautiful. We will definitely return. We only wished that we had scheduled more time there on our visit to Spain.
The location is superb and there are some wonderful walks on the doorstep. The rooms are comfortable and clean and there is a spacious lounge and interesting library in which to relax. As the hotel has only just been completed the staffing seemed inadequate for the number of guests. We had to wait an hour to check out and the restaurant service was extremely slow. Breakfast was served very late, especially as we had a long driuve ahead and was a very makeshift affair so it was overall not good value for money when we compared it with other hotels on our trip.
A very quiet and special hotel in a lovely area. The restoration of the old Olive Mill has been very sympathetically executed and it is a long way from a chain hotel experience. The food was superb and beutifully presented. The only "downside" was that the swimming pool was not in use......although I have no doubt it would have been "refreshing" to say the least in October!
Excellent stay at the hacienda. Great location and the manager is very friendly and helpful person. His dogs are cute. Breakfast was very sober.
A charming and unique hotel set in a beautiful location. We overnighted there en route from Cordoba to Granada and very much enjoyed the experience. Would recommend that menus be translated into both English and French as several guests didn't understand Spanish and didn't know what food to order. Linguistic skills of hotel staff were also lacking. There was also some confusion about ordering wine during dinner. Breakfast choices were also extremely limited and didn't compare with other hotels. Nevertheless, it was a delightful and enjoyable stay.
The question really is, what wasn't good? We ate twice in the restaurant and the food was absolutely fantastic, each bite and flavor were an experience. Though people indeed only speak Spanish, it's really not a problem at all, the staff is very professional, helpful and nice. It's the perfect place if you want to unwind, relax, and enjoy the fabulous views over hundreds and hundreds of olive trees. Also great pool. Room very clean and thought through while decorating. we read bad comments about the breakfast, but it was pretty decent. nothing related to the hotel itself...you do need to realize that there is really hardly anything around that you can do, unless u like to bike, read, relax or swim....but we might have also picked the wrong small towns around zuheros to visit...
This hotel was excellent. We had a simple but comfortable room with a fantastic view towards Zuheros. The restaurant was top class, good food and good service. They have managed to combine simple rustic charm with real luxury. I would love to go back!
a wonderful stay. if we were to come this way again, we would stay here and go by car to visit Cordoba, Granada and Sevilla, using this hotel as a base. But don't miss the surrounding small towns! nothing
nice... relaxing.. clean... good service... friendly staff... Only one staff member spoke in English which was rather bady broken... making it very defficult and makes it difficult to communincate .
The staff in the hotel are all pleasant and professional. This was our second visit of the year as we love the quiet location - it is easy to find and yet within range of a lot of tourist attractions. The hotel has a good sized pool. Perhaps a little more variety at the buffet breakfast, (for example, the walnut bread we had on our last day was excellent) would have been welcome as we were there for a week.
This was a great value for the money. The hotel was very modern, clean and the rooms were comfortable. The free breakfast was excellent. The hotel supposedly has wireless internet access but it doesn't work if your laptop has Microsoft Vista. The desk clerk said that was much more difficult and she never could provide information on how to make it work.
This was a lovely hotel with very friendly staff but very quiet when we were there. It made an excellent base to travel to places such as Cordoba Possiblt a bit too quiet
Everything. I would recommend it to friends and collegues
Very good hotel. Lovely swimming pool and very helpful staff. Very good value indeed. Not all items were available on menu in dinning room.
I loved the tranquility and the swimming pool.
The entire facility, the restaurant, the room, the service, the location, even the town of Cabra No
Location and atmosphere
Friendly and helpful staff, I was able to park directly outside on a narrow busy street. The hotel warm and welcoming. We had bed breakfast and evening meal for an all in good price. The meal on the evening we arrived was excellent value at 12 euros. The waiter could not have been more obliging
Helpful, friendly staff. Excellent chef - our best meals in Spain were there. Charming place. The beds were poor - we could feel the springs through the mattress.Also, they tipped up when you sat on the end of them as the legs were placed too close together - rather disconcerting!
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food in the resaurant was brilliant- really good value for money. A really peaceful location, great for walking and the bat caves are amazing.
Comfortable and value for money
comfortable rooms, excellent restaurant, superb location and views faulty wc cistern, very basic breakfast
The village people for their friendliness and hopitality, also how cheap every thing was. not enough choice for breakfast
Nice village, fine nature, hotels restaurant very good, friendly atmosphere.
Helpful staff, great location and good atmosphere. Information for hiking is detailed and very useful.
Hotel was nice, everything worked and we were comfortable. Staff goes the extra mile to be helpful. The hotel is solid 2-star in terms of amenities, but the restaurant punches far above this weight. The food and setup were excellent, as was the waitress.
Lovely peacefull village, nice to walk in the mountains, hotel has a good kitchen.
Close to a via verde. Fantastic views. No official WiFi
The room was spacious ,clean and comfortable The restaurant and cafeteria are not in the hotel but are 50m away - not a problem usually but it was raining heavily when we were there . The parking is very tight and if your car is at the back you have to wait for the cars in front to be moved before you can get out.We told the staff that we needed to leave early.They said it would not be a problem but did not appear to move the cars until 9.45am
