In our search for accommodations in Spain during the Christmas period, we stumbled across (in early November 2008) this very nicely landscaped B&B located in nearby Estepona, initially booking the nights of Dec. 24 and 25th. As our plans changed due to flight cancellations from England brought on by the world financial crisis, we were able to book at third night a few weeks later without any problems. Casa Sol y Luna is located in the outskirts of Estepona and is quite difficult to find without detailed instructions, which the owners forwarded to us!
This is a beautifully built and maintained Spanish house, located on a hillside with a great view of the countryside below leading toward the Mediterranean Sea. The main feature of this B&B is its very picturesque outdoor pool as well as the immaculately maintained grounds of various flowers, shrubs and trees of all sorts.
Of the three bedrooms in the house, one 1st floor room is used by the owners with, in our case, the second available for Sue's sister. Sue and I had the only ground floor bedroom, with access to both the living/dining room and the outdoor swimming pool. The off-season room rate was 45 Euros per room/night in cash plus an additional 5 Euros for breakfast if you wish.
We enjoyed our ground level room - it was really quiet without nearby neighbours and, if we felt like it, we could walk out our patio doors and fall right into their swimming pool! The bed itself was very comfortable but, being a hot-blooded guy, I found the double duvet a bit warm for my tastes - still I survived somehow.
Our bedroom had a small adjoining room with a modern shower, toilet and sink arrangement that worked just fine. Another door opened into the living room where they had a fireplace and we also watched a CD movie on their TV on Christmas Eve. The breakfast table and refrigerator are located at the far end of the living room with a small bar providing access to food being prepared in the adjoining kitchen.
We stayed at Boabdil for 2 nights last October. The Guesthouse in run by a friendly young Dutch lady. Our room was very tasteful and spacious only the staircase is a bit narrow when you have a large suitcase with you! Very comfi beds and a good shower. Breakfast in the morning was fresh with warm bread and some fruit. Ronda is a romantic town and this Guesthouse really adds to it. We would certainly recommand it to our friends!
Clean and comfortable. Well worth the price.
clean hotel, nice staff but tiny rooms. we were woken up by the noise made by the resturant when getting the tables out to the terrace in the early morning. correct breakfast. 75 eur double room with breakfast
Pension Purisma is a small budget hotel just off the busy tourist area of Ronda. If you don't mind basic, but clean and comfortable accomodation, then this could suit you. Rooms start from 17 Euros per night (single). The room is not huge, but it is comfortably sized and there is enough room to walk around the bed. Facilities in the room include a small basin, bedside drawers, a set of hooks on the wall, and a small window (which looked down to a perspex roof and across to another room). A clean toilet and shower are located just down the hallway.
The managers, a husband and wife team are very friendly, and the senora will even help you with your Spanish! Breakfast is not provided-the manager tells me he doesn't want to get up that early! But there is a great little cafe within 2minutes walk where breakfast could be had for under 2 Euros.
While this pension is not really extraordinary or outstanding, it's accessibility to the tourist areas while being located in a quieter area of the city plus the price make it an affordable alternative. By staying at this pension, I could afford to eat more quality meals and spend my money on shopping and sightseeing.
A very good choice. I stayed there in march 2005 for two nights.
It's nearby everything. The room was small but very good with private bathroom.
Nice staff, good price,perfect location.
If I ever come back I will stay there again.
We didnt actually stay here, but as we were wondering the streets I noticed this hotel, in a tiny narrow street and thought how typical spanish and quaint it looked. I then read about it in a guide book which said it was probably one of the nicest in town. The building dates to 1736 and was a private residence until it became a hotel in 1998. It has a patio, cafe and billiards.
A Finca For A Week
With a hire car, this is a very pleasant combination ... just so long as you don't have a Fiesta, barking dogs and motorbikes all night long. Only joking.
Spain doesn't seem to do quiet rural :-)
Total freedom, great value and many with wood stoves, tile floors and swimming pools ... have a browse through the pictures.
We found our Finca via
See also the website below for links.
Combine with cheap air flights and car hire - a very convenient and no-hassle holiday.
We flew into Malaga Airport and had a car within 30 minutes ... the drive into the hills is very special.
The coastline isn't pretty, in general, thanks to huge concrete developments and golfing.

My friends and I rented an apartment in Ronda's new town. It's located right at the edge of the new town and offers a terrific view of Ronda perched on a hill.
The apartment sleeps between 4-6 people, it has 2 bathrooms, a kitchen and a living room. One of the rooms leads out to a roof terrace where the jacuzzi and the barbecue pit are located.
My favorite accomodation is www.bancotel.com you get bonus to stay in diferent hotels (3,4 starts) for only 50 euros the double room per night, great value and quality!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
