We had the most wonderful holiday at this B&B, although it was more like a boutique hotel than a B&B. The hosts were perfect, Jose, Cristina and Raul made our stay so good, nothing was too much trouble for them. Our room had everything that we needed, including air conditioning. Breakfast was great, we didn't have to stick to any particular time, we were asked each night what time we wanted breakfast. The outside area was kept beautifully with wonderful views and fruit trees all around. We came back from our days out to fruit baskets outside our room which were delicious! We would highly recommend this B&B and will definitely be returning.
Perfect location, perfect choise!
We had the most incredible stay. The B&B, although you would call it more like a boutique hotel, had such warm and friendly hosts. Jose and Cristina were absolutely brilliant they made us feel so welcome. They were very attentive, and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were very comfortable with air conditioning and had absolutely everything that you needed in them. They were kept very clean. We sometimes got back to our room and would find fresh fruit picked from their trees in a basket which was most delightful. If you need to just get away from things and totally unwind this is the place for you. The pool and outside areas are kept very clean and the views from the B&B are fantastic.
Perfect Hosts and fantastic stay
My wife and I stayed here on 13 July for one night with our three children, their husbands and our five grandchildren. After a tiring flight and arriving very late we were given a warm welcome from Jose who runs this small guesthouse with the help of his wife Cristina and their son Raul. After settling the children down for the night all the adults had a nightcap with Jose and then had a very relaxing sleep. The facilities are better than most places we have stayed in in the UK with aircon, crisp clean sheets and monogrammed pillow cases and towels. Each room was spotlessly clean.
The next day we had a swim in the pool and then had a very tasty breakfast with limitless orange juice, coffee and tea. The views from the guesthouse are stunning as you can see for miles around Unfortunately after our breakfast we had to leave to go onto the villa we had rented for our 40th anniversary celebrations. However, we will definitely return. Jose and Cristina made us feel very welcome and are the perfect hosts
Room Tip: Some of the rooms have a fridge, kettle and microwave
