Ronda is a delightful little city with many excellent hotels, and is home to Spain’s most photographed bridge, the oldest and most prestigious bullring, and was one of the last Moorish cities to fall in the Spanish reconquest. We recommend at least two nights/two days in Ronda to really see the city and enjoy what Ronda has to offer, though extending this for a few days makes for an excellent break, and means you won’t be rushed.
Located within the Grazalema Natural Park, the Alojamiento Payoyo Rural is a relaxing place to unwind and forget about the busy world back home. The hotel is actually a working farm, with local cheeses made onsite, and sold through their own shop adjacent to the hotel building.
There are three room types to choose from at the Alojamiento Payoyo Rural, twin rooms, quadruple rooms, and family rooms. Each room includes a private bathroom and television, and are comfortable, but this is a hotel intended for people who are quite used to roughing it. There is a terrace offering good views of the mountains and natural park, and is a wonderful place to relax after spending a day exploring the district. Disabled guests can be accommodated, and in the winter months heating in rooms and shared areas is provided.
Along with the cheese shop, gifts and souvenirs can also be bought which is one trip less into to town to find gifts for family, and the same staff can also help planning local tours of the area. If desired, it is possible to fill your days with hiking, birdwatching, scenic village trails, or take a drive to Ronda and enjoy the sights of one of Spain’s most significant historical cities.
Wi-Fi internet connection is available for free throughout the hotel and parking is plentiful on site.
The Hotel Molino del Santo is an old watermill converted into a relaxing modern hotel nestled under the mountains of Benaojan, and beside a fast flowing stream that gives the hotel restaurant a distinct rainforest appeal.
All rooms at the Hotel Molino del Santo have air conditioning, Wi-Fi Internet, tea and coffee making facilities, as well as locally made ceramic tiles on the floors.
First and foremost, Hotel Los Pintores is an artists paradise, though not all of the guests are artists, but that really is the charm of Los Pintores, the hotel is an oasis for those with a desire to be surrounded by beautiful things.
The location of the Hotel Rural los Pintores, on one hand in the cute village of Benaojan, and on the other within the Grazalema Natural Park is an inspiring location chosen to provide succor for the imagination.
The hotel’s nine rooms are decorated artistically, and one is setup for people with disabilities, several include a small terrace to enjoy the scenery of the mountains behind the village. All rooms are heated in winter.
Within the Hotel Los Pintores there is also a restaurant (vegetarian meals can be procided), and games, karaoke, and pool are available. The hotel terrace features a 6 person jacuzzi, Wi-Fi Internet connection is also available for free. No parking spaces are available.
The surrounding area is perfect for both artists seeking inspiration, and nature lovers planning to trek their way around the villages and pathways of the Guadiaro Valley. A popular local must-see is the Cueva de Pileta where guests will be escorted with a local tour guide to see prehistoric cave paintings left behind by paleolithic Iberians.
Finding a hotel in Ronda is easy, there are so many to choose from, but not all hotels are created equal. Hotel Ronda located next to the Casa del Rey Moro (The Moorish King’s House) is one of these delightful little hotels most people only hear about after their holiday in Ronda.
Quite simply, most hotel booking and review websites or travel guides mention the biggest hotels, or best advertisers and it can be very difficult to find the smaller hotels that you should probably stay at, or would if a friend recommended it. Hotel Ronda is one of these small boutique hotels that really deserves a mention.
Situated along Calle Sevilla in Ronda, the Hotel San Cayetano is a good place to stay for tourists looking to tour the historic town. The hotel is very close to popular tourist spots in the area from the birthplace of bullfighting and other historical sites to modern establishments like the local mall.
The Hotel San Cayetano was built upon an old building which has been refurnished to provide modern amenities for guests. All the 24 rooms in this hotel have been fitted with air-conditioning units. During the winter season, guests can also enjoy the benefits of the hotel’s heating system available on all rooms. The rooms are also built to be soundproof.
