What our visitors have said about The Hoopoe Yurt Hotel

Matt and Donna wrote:
“It truly was an amazing stay, everything was just perfect. We actually felt like very lucky guests at your home rather than in a hotel. You have created a beautiful place with beautiful yurts, pool & food, but the most special piece of the unique Hoopoe Heaven is the wonderfully strong spirit & soul that exists……we could see it in ourselves, yourselves and the other great guests we had the privilege of meeting - Hoopoe is officially good for the heart!”

“A truly remarkable experience in the most beautiful of settings. It has exceeded all expectations. Beautifully relaxed, welcoming, stunning food. Thank you so much for your welcome and for making our honeymoon so memorable. Things I will take with me… a meadow of luminous blue lupins, the scent of jasmine in the early morning and evening, the views that are caught between the trees, each different and inviting. The play of light on our yurt, sun and leaves dancing, warm glowing lanterns at night, the wildlife, birds, snakes, beetles and the calm. Thank you!”

“We loved... travelling with ease from home to Andalucia and seeing your magical little yurt camp glowing with candles and lanterns like a fairytale place... we loved our beautiful yurt and gazing at the shadows of the leaves on the roof... we loved always feeling welcome... we loved our lovingly prepared breakfasts in their beautiful bowls... we loved all the beautiful touches around the place - the bathroom sink, the rugs, the plants, the books, the hammock... we loved sitting on the loo and watching the full moon rise... we loved the incredibly delicious suppers and the sociable chilled out setting and hosts... we loved our morning delivery of new books to read and be inspired by... we loved sharing conversations with you about all kinds... we loved being given so much space to hang out in... we loved being able to do exactly as we pleased... we loved bowls of olives appearing as if by magic... we loved your pool, your home, your thoughtfulness, your land, hearing your dreams and plans...”
