Reviews from Little Hotels Travellers:
|We had an excellent time at the Finca Marta Hotel.|
|A wonderful location with lovely pool, tea and coffee making facilities, beautiful grounds and lovely breakfasts. Spoilt by poor accommodation which was very small. I am used to rustic but termites burrowing into the pillars and beams of the entrance and spending 2 hours killing swams of flying ants in our bedroom is not my idea of a holiday. No one on site to ask for help that night!! My pillow was the worse one I have ever had in any hotel. But despite that we did enjoy the rest.|
|This is the third 'little hotel of Spain' that we have stayed in, it was equally as individual as the others, very comfortable & relaxing. We stayed at the hotel for diner, no menu or wine list, the dishes & wine were just brought out (but this all added to the charm!).|
|We really did not know what to expect but found the Finca Santa Marta a delight. A bit basic I suppose and we bought a mosquito spray to get rid of a few mossies but we thoroughly enjoyed the two night there.|
We had our two evening meals there and they were most enjoyable. There was no menu, but the food offered was so very enjoyable as was the wine. By the way, the liquers and coffee are also included. Breakfast had a good selection for our appetites.
The rooms we booked were the larger ones and they were most ample. There are plenty of places to crash out and relax including the swimming pool.
We would go again.
Check room rates, check availability and make your booking. It's so easy!
