Hotel Convento de la Magdalena
Ranked #5 of 15 Hotels in Antequera
Reviewed 11 June 2017 via mobile

We visited this hotel for a special occasion.The Convecto is in a beautiful setting and an excellent building.Check in was very efficient.Room was lovely spotless clean.Air con was poor.Bar was understaffed,and when restaurant opened,they used staff from bar.Good menu but my potatoes were raw!!!When we explained to staff,she shrugged her shoulders and said "sorry" it was never mentioned again!! No compensation,or explanation from restaurant manager???If you do eat here,order your drinks in restaurant and take them through into bar,once you have finished your meal.Poor really for a hotel that claims to be 5*!!!We won't be back!!!

This hotel is nested on the hills just above the city of Antequera, in between el Torcal and the city itself. Its location allows a breath-taking view of the surrounding landscape in a quiet and isolated spot, almost magical al night. The hotel service was very efficient and its catering service was very good. We had booked a regular room, but when we arrived we were offered a suite for only 20€ more. The cost of the room included spa and breakfast. The suite was really nice, with a classical touch, coherent with the overall structure, that is an old convent. I enjoyed the stay very much, except for the spa. This clearly necessitated some maintenance work.

Set in some stunning countryside, with great walks and absolute quiet except for birds and insects. Staff were courteous and professional, all spoke fabulous English. We had a garden room which was well appointed with lovely bathroom, separate shower, all very clean. Perfect if you are travelling with a dog. We walked into Antequera which took just over an hour. Had dinner in the restaurant which was delicious , definitely recommend and go back for the value for money it proved to be

Staff was very helpful and nice, particularly at the reception. They arranged tickets for El Caminito del Rey, gave us directions to help us move around, arranged a snack when we couldn't take breakfast. Breakfast was excellent and dinner, although with only four options, was adequate and provided a balanced Mediterranean diet. The service could be extremely slow when they had more clients, though. Antequera is a lovely city, worth visiting.

We were on a cycling trip with Trek travel and spent two nights here. Employees were especially courteous. Beautiful public rooms since a renovated convent with great views. Golf is close if you like that but also a very nice natural walking/running trail overlooking Antequerra. Great breakfast buffet but no dinner. Rooms very large bathroom with working jacuzzi tubs.
