We visit the hotel every time we stay in Andalucia. It is a beautiful Spanish country house, perched high up in the mountains, with spectacular views over the Guadalhorce Valley and down towards the sea and Malagar. We have eaten there many times, at a table on the lawn and in the shade. I cannot begin to describe the experience...

We stayed 2 nights on the first floor in a 'suite'. The room was very basic and not what i would classify as a suite as the only extra in the room was a worn sofa but the room had 2 window doors with little balconies and although very basic, the bed was very comfortable and room as cool as...

We chose Hotel Cerro de Hijar, based upon impressive reviews and because it ticked every box: A secluded and exclusive location, away from the beaches and family holiday resorts. Travelling as a couple, we booke eleven nights, half board and made our booking directly with the hotel. Our first five nights were spent in a Junior Suite and the remainder...

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...

This place is unique . The rooms are immaculate and quirky. This would make and ideal honeymoon location. It's truly relaxing. A place to go to get away from it all.

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.

“The Junior Suites offer the best compromise between value and space. The tower suite has a spiral staircase up to the tower.”
