My husband and I stayed here for Easter weekend and had requested a double bed (instead of two twins) at the time of booking. When we arrived in the late afternoon, the person at the front desk barely gave us a welcome and showed us to our room: two separate twin beds. When we mentioned that we had requested a...

I find this problem wherever I stay now...unruly and noisy brats whose parents seem to think everyone else should just have to put up with there annoying offspring because " you were a child once". Yes I was but my father made sure I behaved and if I didn't I felt his wrath. Why don't parents take their kids to...

This place is very thematically consistent, and should appeal if you're a fan of old ranch houses, adobe, deserts, horses, cacti - that kind of thing. It had a very tranquil feel to it, even when fully booked. Our room was large and clean, with a view out over the sparse and barren surrounds. The swimming pool was of decent...

This small hotel (25 rooms) was built some time ago to resemble a traditional Spanish hacienda. Our room was comfortable with a terrace overlooking the hillside. There is a massive amount of space in the common areas, pool table, lounges etc. The swimming pool is nice but the only shade available is under 1 olive tree. I appreciate that they...

Room was adequate but clean, depressing terrace looking out onto scrubland,very good hot water, strange very small towels,unexciting breakfast but good coffee,did not sample restaurant other than for breakfast,unmanned reception after 11pm and no information in rooms about anything - how to contact reception or WIFI. The hotel is perfectly easy to find as it is just off the road...

Stayed here for five nights. The hotel is situated in the national park, so its very peaceful and quiet and has a very Spanish feel to it. The hotel and grounds are really lovely and interesting history in relation to the spaghetti westerns. The hotel has a really nice swimming pool with lots of loungers which just look out to...

Although we didn't actually stop here during a tour of western movie locations, we went in to view the premises and to take refreshments. The place is famous for being in the opening scene of "A Fistful of Dollars", where Clint Eastwood rides to the well in the middle of the two buildings and takes some water whilst watching a...

The most impressive thing about this hotel were the warm and welcoming staff, especially the bubbly Consuelo and friendly dining room staff.It felt a little like being at home, if I felt like singing around the place it was fine! Rooms are large and clean, patio with good seating area for each room and fabulous shower. Paradise for birdwatchers in...

We loved this hotel. We were given a lovely family room with two rooms with independent air-conditioning. The lady that was in reception was very very helpful and very nice. Clean and well decorated. It is relatively pricey but it was the high season and the breakfast was quite good as well
