The fabulous gardens are deal for relaxing to.The Reid family owned retreat is both charming and welcoming with the help of a dedicated handpicked team from the surrounding villages. The timeless elegance of the 18th century Hacienda has a generosity of spirit and a soul that captures all five senses; the endless views of the Andalusian plains with your olive and almond groves, the sea of sunflower fields, the scent of the lavender and jasmine in the gardens, nothing but blue skies and the sun shining so bright, the soothing breeze off the Atlantic ocean as you wake from your siesta, the singing cicadas, the gentle running water from the pools, the albero sand under your feet and a dry manzanilla sherry to reminisce about the good times.
The restaurant serves good simple Mediterranean cuisine. The chef produces an outstanding selection of recipes with an emphasis on local, seasonal produce much of which comes from the hotel’s organic gardens. Whenever possible dining is alfresco.
