                                                                                                      5 of 5

The decor was done to perfection and there was absolutely everything you needed and more. The Hi-spec furniture and decor was simple yet beautiful with a Spanish twist. Everything was in very good taste and of high quality; the bed linen crisp and white, the bathroom shampoo and shower gel provided were lovely too, everything was very carefully thought out to perfection to the last detail. I would highly recommend this as a holiday destination. Ronda and it's surroundings were stunning, the jeep tour, wine tasting, olive oil tasting and ice cold swimming in the local rivers, were all refreshing, relaxing and enjoyable. El Olivar was the perfect get away, After a day wondering around Ronda there was nothing more inviting than returning to El Olivar for some cool drinks, tapas and a refreshing and rewarding swim in the turquoise pool. Thank you Team El Olivar!
