We stayed two nights and loved it. The view from all the rooms is amazing. We loved Grazalema so much that we are going back . We are experienced global travelers and highly recommend the area and staying at this very special hotel. Excellent value for the money, check the promotional rates online

A "must-see" white village, Zahara de la Sierra is one of the most spectacularly situated villages in Spain. Hotel Arco de la Villa is a great destination hotel within the village. It is an attraction of itself. If you are looking for a unique place to stay with a breathtaking view and great value while you are traveling in Spain...

We wanted to see rural Spain and swim in a lake in the mountains! Lovely hotel nestled on the rock face at the top of the village! Very friendly male host and good facilities! Big room and the most incredible view! Very glad we came! The village is so pretty with steep hills, lots of history and a lovely shop...

I spend 2 nights in Arco de la villa's only single room in September 2009. This hotel is simply the best you find in Zahara - and this actually says a lot even though it's a small village! The view from all the rooms is breathtaking! The front desk and staff are present 24 hours, and they are very friendly,...

Stayed a Sunday night in mid-October '08 and felt that it was, overall, a good value. View from the room was truly spectacular - almost like flying it was so high up. The only issue we had was related to noise level due to (1) the cafeteria being directly overhead and (2) construction work (no power equipment - just talking...
