5 star ratingA very pleasant stay Fantastic location but a bit scary to drive up and down the steep narrow roads to the hotel but once up the view is striking. We stayed in a Superior Comfy room on floor 6 with comfortable beds and a huge terrace with table, chairs and sunbeds. Very good breakfast. Pleasant and helpful staff. Nice restaurant with very good food. Garden, pool and atmosphere to our full satisfaction. A car is a must to get to and from the hotel and to be able to get around to various sights, beaches, etc.

5 star ratingFairytale wedding We recently had our wedding at Castillo and it couldn’t have been more perfect. We were lucky enough to take over the castle for the weekend and it was spectacular from start to finish. Our guests were blown away by the beautiful setting, the food (which included paellas, huge canapés, the wedding breakfast and the wedding cake) and drinks were all delicious and the staff all went above and beyond to make our weekend perfect. Joy and her lovely team seemed to know what we wanted even before we did and worked so hard to make everything go smoothly. They even let us fly our own flag! We have stayed in a few different rooms over the past year and they have all been unique and lovely. We would highly recommend staying (or getting married!) at Castillo.

5 star ratingJust one word: perfekti. I'll be back asap. Everything was so excellent: the atmosphere, food, landscape, staff I had my 70th birthday here with my family and everyone of us just loved this place. My six years old grandson said: "I hope to own this castle." Just keep the the business strong!!!

5 star ratingLunch in the mountains above Marbella We went for a drive through the mountains above Marbella, and found this beautiful hotel in the pretty town of Monda. As its name suggests, it's a hotel built within an old castle, so many of the original features remain. We had lunch in the Albacar restaurant at the top of the building , with panoramic views of the surrounding hills . The food was superb, the staff very welcoming and the setting is stunning. Well worth a visit if you are in the area, only a fifteen minute drive from Marbella.

5 star ratingWonderful countryside retreat An absolutely fantastic stay was had here. On a vacation to visit family, the beach at Marbella was not a priority and so how delighted I was to find this paradise just 15-20 or so minutes inland from the coast. Two young gentlemen, Paul & Paco were exceptionally accommodating going out of their way to assist whenever they could and always greeting myself and other guests with a cheerful, welcoming smile. They represented the bigger picture of my hotel experience and that was mirrored by every other staff member at every step during my stay. My heartfelt thanks go out the hotel for making my Spanish visit truly remarkable and they can be sure of my return business next time. Thank you again to Paul & Paco, it’s great to see your enthusiasm for the hospitality industry and you both are fantastic representatives of your hotel. Top marks, simple as that.

5 star ratingCastle in Andulacia worth a visit This is a lovely converted castle looking out over the Village of Monda near Marbella. Fantastic views rustic lovely rooms good size swimming pool and a lovely restaurant with a great choice of quality food. We popped by for a late lunch on the terrace and even though it is the middle of august there was a cooling breeze. We had a tuna salad and a couple of drinks then wandered round the property. We will come again.
