12 of us booked a walking holiday. It was our first trip but some of the party had been several times and it's easy to understand why. Tom who led the walks would be an asset to any business. He's charming,knowledgeable,helpful - nothing was any trouble for him. But it's not a one man show as his sister,mum and dad...

Booked a "Murder Mystery" evening which was really good. It included a 4 course evening dinner and the food was superb. This is the only hotel/bar in this small village, however they don't overprice for drinks which a lot of places in their location would. For example, bottle of wine €5.95. Continental breakfast is included, however if you want an...

This small family run hotel is in a national park, and is an ideal location for walking and other activities. The welcome, service and food were exceptional, and the fact that English is spoken by the hosts meant that our requests and queries posed no problem and were always graciously dealt with. Our group of 19 was catered for in...

We stayed at Mariposa for a night on 8 September 2014. We had booked a 3 hour quad bike tour for 3 of us which, at 100€ a head was not particularly cheap. However, included in the price was a guided tour with the very knowledgeable Wayne who knew loads about Sierra Espuna (although we never got to see Fred...
