We had a wonderful yoga retreat where we got to discover different yoga types, healthy cooking depending on the energy type and other activities that were all very well chosen for a maximum of stress release and well-being. Linda, the host, is also a very lovely person who is always making sure that her guests are happy. It was awesome to spend time with her. I highly recommend the place as it is also super clean, big and very welcoming. It’s all you need for a perfect time off.

We came up the hill to savour the wonderful view from the Urban Villa and have dinner cooked by their talented Costa Rican chef. The goats cheese starter followed by a delicious macadamia nut encrusted cod was delicious. We then finished it off with a Central American favourite, Torta Tres Leches. Everything was superb and Lancashire Linda was a delightful hostess. Top tip: in the height of summer, eat late as it can get quite warm on the terrace. Dine after 9, Spanish style!

We absolutely loved this hotel and considered it the highlight of our recent trip to Spain. Everyone we dealt with went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The view and sunset were amazing, and it was even warm enough to sit on the terrace with our bottle of wine - we also enjoyed being able to see the Rock of Gibraltar in the distance. We thought the room and very modern bathroom were great, as was the quite sumptuous breakfast. if you want to walk, there are lots of national parks within short driving distance. We will definitely return!
