The Boutique hotel Posada del Conde is located between the Conde del Guadalhorce and Guadalteba Reservoirs in the Desfiladero de los Gaitanes natural park. It offers 24 spacious double rooms (and 1 suite) with huge beds. Scenic forest views and the peace and quiet makes this hotel a very special place to spend a few nights. It is an ideal place for travelers exploring Andalusia and it is definitely off the beaten track. If you are on a road trip across Andalucia this hotel should be on your list for at least of 1 or 2 nights.
If you stay in this hotel the staff can arrange your entry permit for the Caminito del Rey and thus you avoid the difficult booking system
The hotel staff are very friendly and you can expect a professional personalized service (English is spoken). Rooms at La Posada Del Conde feature traditional décor, elegant furniture and under-floor heating. All include a TV, as well as a private bathroom (some with jacuzzi baths), hairdryer and free toiletries.
A continental breakfast is served daily and the restaurant has a charming terrace and beautiful dining room. The food is traditional Spanish cuisine adn the quality very high. The roasted lamb being one of the highlights plus soups, special salads and puddings and sweets. The wine list is extensive but In my humble opinion it’s always best to ask for a local wine and avoid the usual “Rioja” There is also a bar with talkative and friendly waiters and several comfortable lounge areas including a reading room with a fireplace.
