Set high above the town of Tolox, this is the perfect place to relax. The only sounds are the birds and maybe a distant dog barking. No music, no TV blaring, just bliss. And the food is superb. That said, the mountain road up to the hotel is not for the nervous or inexperienced driver.

This was my second visit to Cerro de Hijar. The first was in the middle of winter about three years ago, when we arrived late at night to a log fire. This time we enjoyed the delights of high summer - a great swimming pool and the hotel's spectacular natural environment. The rooms are decorated sparingly, but a great deal...

A small hotel with 16 bedrooms, full of charm, comfortable and very Spanish. We would definitely visit again. Food well presented and good value for money and the rooms simple but with everything you need. Not suitable for toddlers and small children due to the pool area and unsafe surroundings but perfect for couples and older families.

We chose the one night gastronomic package, but could have stayed longer.
