Lovely hotel, lovely position, clean, quiet location, good base for touring the mountains looking for birds of prey. Bed very hard-personal preference is for softer bed-please remember that this is not the only hotel in the world with a hard bed !
We asked for a balcony or a view and got both! The staff were pleasant and efficient. The meal in the restaurant was very good We had agood sized bedroom.Parking nearby was easy. .
Very friendly staff, personal service, & although a simple Continental, breakfast was freshly made with the most fabulous, freshly squeezed orange juice & hot coffee....unlike a recent stay in a 5* hotel in Spain!
The hotel is in a good central location in Olvera...we had the most spectacular view of the Castle and Church from our room which was especially brilliant at sunset.The staff were friendly and helpful and the dinner waiter ( Paco ) excelled.The birds of prey in this area are a wondrous sight and on this trip we were privileged to see two Golden Eagles...the first I have ever seen...WOW..The other ornithological treat are the Griffin Vultures...there is a feeding station just outside Olvera where you can see these big beasties being fed,,,,another wow. One thing that I feel could be added to the rooms in this hotel are Tea/Coffee making facilities ( as with most of the hotels I have stayed at in this area ) .It is not a big deal for me as I always have my trusty travel kettle and a good brand of dried milk in my hand luggage.
Nice ambiance and better than a 4 star hotel we stayed in in Jerez.
When I am on business in this area I always stay at this hotel because it has free Wi Fi. The staff are all very friendly and extremely helpful.The hotel is very convenient for Olvera town and the surrounding villages are only a short drive away.The birds of Prey are still prevalent in the area an are a joy to behold. The food in the restaurant it not as good as it used to be...maybe they have changed their chef ! Parking is a bit tricky but you do expect that in any town hotel that does not have its own car park.
Very attentive and professional staff. We were very well looked after. The service and food in the bar and restaurant were excellent.
The staff were friendly & extremely helpful...& I have booked to return in 4 weeks time! Beautiful pool area & lovely ambience throughout. Also very well-priced. Decorated to fit in with its surroundings in this lovely town, one of the Pueblos Blancos. Highly recommended-a gem!
The breakfast is the most cheepest (and has a good quality) in the whole area. Rooms were clean and the swimming pool was ok The staf was not very helpfull and friendly.
Very friendly and helpfull staff. Very clean. Nice pool- kept very clean.
The setting in the mountainous area of Andalucia and the view of the Jade-colored lake from the hotel.
The views were fantastic and the hotel only 2 minutes walk from the village. The rooftop parking was an extra bonus in such a small village
Fantastic location and excellent value for money.
Beautiful setting Breakfast was only average considering the excellent quality of evening meals
Amazing view over the lake. First class service from the duty manager when we could not drive up to the hotel because the road was closed for the local fiesta. He took me to the car park, checked there was space available and then showed me the back road up to the hotel. Nothing at all. It's not 4 star luxury but it's more than adequate with an idyllic location.
Stunning location; well presented; needs gradual updating of rooms and bathrooms - but for the price it was excellent. No
Wonderful location for visiting the white villages & walking locations by car. Not good for walking directly from the hotel as the town is on top of a very high & long steep hill! Very friendly & helpful staff. Excellent choice of typical local cafes & bars for full meals or snacks. Our family thoroughly enjoyed a one week stay. Some nights we had the bedroom window open and barking dogs woke us regularly.
Situation is wonderfull just straight on a cliff with a superb view on a lake. The village of Zahara is also very nice and their people extremelly welcoming. Hotel staff is very very kind and we enjoyed a nice breakfast watching the nature around from through the window bays
Hidden gem off the beaten path. Sits at the top of city on a hill, right below the castle. Great walks. Every room has a view. Rooms are nicely furnished. Nice simple breakfast included with our rate. Plan to return.
Would highly recommend this chalet as a very relaxing place to stay for two. You have everything that you need - it is in a great location with stunning views and has been well thought about. The road to get to the apartments is not particularly great as it is 2k outside the village and there were quite a lot of pot holes - but still worth it. We arrived on a bank holiday so the local village shops were not open to buy food, so it would have been nice if there was a few bits at the chalet to start us of as we had to drive quite a long way in the evening to get something to eat - just a pack of pasta and sauce and a few tea bags would have made the whole experience perfect! Or perhaps we could have been pre-warned that shops would be closed.
Great views over the mountains and vultures, friendly owner and his family, great terrace, sunbeds and pool. Comfortable outdoor experience.
The staff (Rafael and Elena) was wonderfully helpful. We enjoyed learning more Spanish customs and language from them. It's not in the center of town, but on the outskirts. But it was a beautiful place.
Nice people ok accomodation Bit far out of town
The staff I met were very nice and friendly. I stayed there in November. The bar is very big and was extremely cold. The bedroom was also very cold - I left the heating on all night.
it is a limited place.
For us the location was perfect, and the staff were excellent
The staff was very welcoming despite our lack of Spanish and their lack of English The room next door was a bit noisy
Warm friendly greeting by helpfull staff. A modicum of English spoken. Food and service very good in a rustic country style. All in all quite a comfortable stay. Only one criticism, our room anly loked onto an internal closed atrium so no views of the magnificent countryside.
Hospitality, although English not spoken efforts were made to make us welcome Hotel was closed one night at 10.30pm after we had been out for a meal after trying all doors had to knock window to find someone to open the main doors
Incredibly friendly staff, who quickly made you feel like a member of the family.
the hotel was an old fashioned spanish hotel and we liked that was looking a bit tired and pool and area around it not open
