This is supposed to be a 5* hotel but it lacked many qualities for this. The room was lovely and clean, unfortunately the air- con kept breaking down. When reception were informed he kept saying it had been fixed, it took them until our final afternoon to sort it.
The spa looked lovely until on closer inspection you could see it was very tired, with tiles missing in the pool and hadn't been cleaned for some time. The sun beds were mostly ripped and the jacuzzi was so hot it burnt your legs.
There was a lack of staff so if you wanted a drink there was often a long wait. Food was very hit and miss with most of it being off the menu.
What this hotel needs most is a lot of updating with the necessary attention to detail.
I must congratulate the lady on reception who , I think, is aware of the problems and was delightful every time. Also Maria, who with her cheerful disposition brightened the day.

We stayed at this hotel for one night as part of our cycling holiday. From the outside, it looks quite nice. We were assigned a junior suite, which was quite spacious with a cozy and good sized family room with fireplace. Our room faced the main courtyard. It's not a modern space, but the room was clean, minus some sticky spots by the door. Not a deal breaker as the hotel does provide slippers. The bathroom is spacious; however the shower squeaked when in use, and the soaker tub (which we didn't use) had a slow drip. Breakfast was unimpressive, with very little protein options and not a large spread. In their defense, breakfast was just being setup when our group entered the dining room - we had an early start that day.

We didn't have much time to explore this hotel and its facilities as we checked-in in the late afternoon, and we left early the next morning. Even with the squeaky shower, I did like our room. The bed was comfortable and we slept well.

Well, how disappointing were we, after using this hotel for over 4 yrs, we took new friends up for lunch in the bar, we always have a sandwich or salad. But looking on the menu I noticed that the prices had doubled, the drinks cost over 15€ for 4 small lagers and a coffee. So we went down into Antequera to the Italian for lunch, we won't be back and I'm spreading the word.

I stayed at this hotel is part of a biking trip in Andalusia.

This was the nicest property we stayed in, beautiful in every way. The building itself is old and interesting, the rooms large and very well appointed. Other facilities include a restaurant, bar and a pool/hot tub/sauna area. Bathrooms amazing!

We had one dinner and breakfast at the restaurant, both excellent.

The hotel is located on a hill with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. One can sit out on the lawn overlooking the olive groves and city below.

While we were there, they were setting up for a wedding. This would be an incredible spot for such an event.

Very lovely, relaxing spot!

We were a group of about 30, we were well looked after, the service was friendly and the room we were in was very nice. The food was good but not as good as the reputation lead me to expect, nice but not special. Lovely place but the food needs to up its level in order to match the surroundings and reputation

We spent one night here but could have stayed another. The property is well located close to Antequera and comes with great views. The swimming pool and spa facilities were well maintained and much appreciated after a day's sightseeing. The restaurant produced some really good food and the wine selection was broad and well priced

We called in to the Convento de la Magdalena for lunch after our golf had been rained off, yes, rained off in August! There’s no doubt this place is beautiful but I certainly think it’s let down by the quality of it’s lunch offering. We ordered ciabatta sandwiches accompanied by a glass of red wine. The sandwiches were ok though the bread was obviously frozen as served rock hard, most disappointing was the wine. You’d expect an establishment of this quality to serve only the best but it was very poor and most definitely the worst glass I’d had anywhere during my visit. When we pointed this out to the waitress she said they’d had complaints before, well why still serve it? The Convento de la Magdalena just oozes class, beauty and charm but is let down by the detail, shame as it left the wrong impression on me, the only saving grace is that after some discussion the waitress didn’t charge for the wine.
