Steely grey mountain tops, soaring eagles, deep valley vistas, verdant chestnut trees, white villages, big sky, wild flowers & cactus, mountain goats, boars, black pigs & rabbits.. these are some of the scenes to behold while staying at Hotel Bandolero. El Bandolero, a small & charming rural hotel, is tucked away in one of the seven small white villages of the Upper Genal Valley in the Ronda Mountains .

Owners David and Ivan welcome you to their charming accommodation in the village of Júzcar where you can escape all the pressures and stress of urban life. Experience the pace of traditional Spanish living while relaxing on the terrace, sampling local Ronda wines and tapas as you enjoy the marvellous views that the lush chestnut tree country of the Upper Genal Valley has to offer. Energetic springtime visitors will get to view some of the 2,000 species of blossoming wild flowers in the pristine valley while on marked walks between the seven white villages of the upper valley. Autumnal visitors will enjoy the changing colours of the chestnut trees while summertime visitors can swim & relax poolside at the hotel or participate in extreme outdoor adventures in and around the Genal River in Júzcar. For birdwatchers, there are varieties of migrating birds year round and, for everyone, the mountaintops offer spectacular views, including all the way to Africa !


El Bandolero, constructed in a rustic style in 2001, offers tapas and creative cuisine along with the creature comforts of country living. The hotel consists of eight spacious double rooms (including two suites), a breakfast dining room, restaurant, bar and terrace, lounge, swimming pool, and has free internet access and a WiFi hotspot. Six of the rooms have wood-burning stoves & terraces with stunning views of the valley and mountains. All rooms are decorated in a rustic style, have en-suite bathrooms and include coffee/tea facilities, televisions and central heating. Try the delicious cuisine of Chef Iván, a Cordon Bleu trained chef with work experience in some fine London restaurants; sip a refreshing "tinto de verano" (red wine and lemonade over ice) on El Bandolero's terrace, taste the tapas, relax and let the views take you away.


Hotel Bandolero is perfectly situated for special holiday escapes. The hotel currently offers theme holidays including painting holidays / workshops (featuring pastels, oils and water colours), walking holidays in the Genal Valley and beyond, guided bird watching holidays and accommodation, an extreme outdoor adventure package and wine tasting weekends featuring locally produced Ronda wines.
