Our room was basic but clean, with a balcony and an ensuite bathroom. The great feature of the villa is the pool which we used every afternoon. The food was delicious and it... More

We popped in for a memorable lunch in sunny October. The clams were great, the beef ribs were great, the apple salad was great, the 'roasted' mussels were fabulous - the chef was on song! We made the mistake of going back one evening when they were overwhelmed. The dauphinoise potatoes were cremated, likewise the creme brulees and the simplest... More

Stayed here as part of a walking week in Andalucia. The hotel is in the centre of Canillas de Albaida, so be aware that although parking is available you will probably have to drag your suitcases through the narrow streets to get to the hotel. Once there the plaza is very pretty with a church at one end (note that... More
