Hotel
Many customers ask us how Molino started and we have decided to explain here the story of how it began and its progress. Molino del Santo was an olive and corn mill since 150 years ago. There were two stones to grind the corn, one is still preserved in the Molino hall. In addition, there were two stone wheels to use the power of the water from the river. These wheels were under what is now the terrace.
The corn was stored in the area where rooms 5 and 6 are now and passed to the mill below because of gravity. As you go up the stairs to the hall, there is a small room on the left. In the old days this was covered with a curtain so that it was not known to exist and is where the miller kept the corn he wanted to sell on the black market. Near the mill’s chimney are the remains of the oven where bread was baked and sold in a shop where there is now a room.

Food (breakfast, lunch + dinner) was AMAZING. Victor (sweetest man ever!) and Moises (gave the BEST service) were our waiters. The rest of the staff were also amazing. Especially reception staff who were extremely helpful and flexible...they made our trip even better. 100% recommend.

Great staff, lovely facilities and a really good restaurant - reasonably priced - to boot with a shady terrace accompanied by the sound of the rushing river beside. 300m walk to the station where you can hop a train to Ronda or Algeciras. I'll definitely be back.

Wonderful place in magical setting next to a rushing stream. The people here are very welcoming and attentive. The rooms have views of the pool, the river or the surrounding mountains. The bed are very comfortable. The food in the restaurant alone is worth the trip to this somewhat remote and peaceful place. Ronda is only a 15 min drive away but you might not want to ever leave here. Highly recommended.

History

Molino

There was a completely different process for crushing the olives where the kitchen is now. The cone-shaped stones used to crush the olives are now at the back of the terrace of the mill. When we renovated the building in 1987, we found many spaces underground where the olive oil was stored.
Common areas

An Andalusian salon

The lounges of the hotel Molino del Santo are perfect for relaxing and being at ease on the hottest or coldest days. In one way or another, we feel at home in the typical furniture of the Ronda region. The large fireplace that presides over the lounge makes it the perfect place to read a book and have a drink in the bar next door.
Architecture

White Village

The Molino del Santo’s hotel, in addition to taking advantage of the structures, has managed to perfectly maintain a typical Andalusian design, Benaoján is a typical white village of Andalusia in the region of Malaga and more specifically Ronda. As it could not be otherwise, we kept the style of the area and now when you walk through the gardens of the hotel it seems that you are in a white village in the middle of an oasis.
