20 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Words and pictures fall way too short of doing justice to La Casa
"It's rare to find such a gem so beautifully thought through and executed. The owners, Neil, Sarah and Karen have put such thought and their hearts and souls into La Casa, and their efforts and great taste shows in spades. It's easy to be glib and make "we'll definitely come back again" promises about returning to beautiful locations, but La Casa is one we really do intend to re-visit, and next time with the kids. We can't praise them enough for what they have created nor thank them enough for the superb stay we had there."

"i looked for somewhere to escape and this was it ! absolutely breathtaking views fantastic food and wonderful hosts. sarah, neil and karen made us feel very welcome as i was travelling alone with my teenage children. i thought it might be a little restricting for the children but there were regular bus routes to the coast and lots to do in the village square. i went on holiday to relax and i certainly did that. i would visit la casa hotel again and again and no that i would have a fantastic stay."

Beautiful hotel with gorgeous rooms and terrace! Will Return!
"We stayed here 3 nights in June, 2009 and would have to say this was probably the best hotel we stayed in during our 2 week trip to Spain. This hotel is brand new and the owners (Karen, Neil and Sarah) did an amazing job with restoring it and adding personal touches to all the rooms. Our room on the first floor had a beautiful view of the mountains and the town of Torrox. This hotel is conveniently located within 5 min drive to the nearest beach (Torrox Costa) or 10-15 min drive to the more crowded beaches of Nerja. We ate at the restaurant one of the nights and really enjoyed the food and the setting. The view from the terrace is superb! Overall, wonderful hotel with personalized attention from the owners, great location on the Costa Del Sol if you are looking for a quieter setting in a more traditional Spanish town, yet within driving distance to the bigger cities and the beaches. While not hugely impressed with the overall Costa Del Sol, weâve vowed to return to Torrox and to Hotel La Casa!"

Everything you can ask for.
"This hotel is practically brand new. Everything is clean and in perfect condition. The view is amazing. The hosts are extremely friendly and very accommodating. The breakfast is always warm and served around your schedule. The food in their restaurant is also very tasty. I can be extremely picky but there is absolutely nothing wrong with this hotel."

"This is an amazing find. We have never felt more welcome. The hotel is very stylish and has been finished to a high standard. Our room was really comfortable and given the high temperatures outside, the fantastic air conditioning was a must!! Karen. Neil and Sarah do everything in their power to make everyone feel at home here and nothing is too much trouble. The restaurant is quite simply, wonderful! All our meals were delightful and priced very reasonably. It wasn't really necessary to eat out anywhere else and when we did, we wished that we'd stayed put!! We had a fabulous time and the friendly hosts made it all that extra bit special. Thanks to all."

an absolute gem
"My 3rd visit to this small stylish friendly family run hotel, the food is wonderfull with a good choice of good value wines. The rooms are well appointed and WiFi is available in the lounge area. If you renting a car don't get anything bigger than a Ford focus the streets are very narrow and that adds to the charm!! We will be back before the year is out"

what can i say ....
"After searching for a peaceful retreat to take my wife away for her 40 th birthday,i stumbled across this beautiful family run hotel in Torrox Pueblo.Not really knowing what to expect i went off the reviews i had read,and to be honest all were spot on!!! This hotel was a delight,the views are stunning,and so was our room. The service is first class,and the family owners really make you feel at home. We sampled most of the A la Carte menu which was a delight,and to be fair could not fault any of our stay.I always think if you re-book a place then you must rate it well, i ll give Hotel La Casa 11 out of 10.Many thanks again,and look forward to October as i have re-booked.Regards Mr and Mrs Mahan."

"This Hotel is lovely, tucked away in the tranquil Torrox Pueblo. It has been fantastically restored into a modern, clean and light buliding. It has over ten rooms all individual and finished to a very high standard. As you walk around you can clearly see the quality of finish, luxury furnishings and facilities. We dined on the terrace, which is an absolute must. The views are beautiful. The food was very nice indeed and the service was very good too and always with a smile. Over all our stay was lovely, the staff are very friendly and couldn't do enough for us all. The rooms were very clean and cosy."

A fabulous night at La Casa"
"As a party of 10 adults and 3 children we booked a table last Friday evening on the terrace a La Casa and all we can say is what a fabulous night we had. Everything was perfect. 10 adults and 3 children in any party would be a tall order for any restaurant but to the team at La Casa you would have thought we were a small table of 2. The food was excellent, the choice available was spectactular, the service was super efficient and more importantly we were made to feel special and part of the family - nothing was too much trouble for them, even down to arranging for four taxis to pick us up (all of which arrived together right on cue). The hotel is stunning and we all want to go back and stay there for a holiday -. the problem is we will probably never want to leave. The terrace has views over the valley into the countryside behind Torrox and is the perfect setting for a lovely meal and a bottle of two of wine on a warm balmy summer evening. If you havent been to La Casa yet all we can say is "what are you waiting for, make your reservation and see for yourself how great it is and what you have been missing out on""
