"Simple night away to relax"
Very warm reception from the owner, helpful, with lots of local knowledge. Highly recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place to relax"
Went off season, very quiet. Staff friendly, ground and pool lovely. Room was large with nice balcony and first class fittings (marble and decorative tiles everywhere). Our GPS identified the hotel by name but it wasn't at that location so was a bit difficult to find at first. Would recommend for a family gathering or get away where you wanted to lay […] around a pool and relax. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

I visited this hotel with colleagues from work. The purpose of our trip was to visit a friend's property he has been lovingly restoring for the last couple of years. As there were ten of us, we could not all stay at the Villa so we over spilt to this hotel as it was close by. On arrival we were all checked in smoothly and then served with a fabulous lunch that all came from local produce. This was overseen by the owner/manager Jael who was absolutely superb as he explained each dish. For the price, the rooms were excellent as was the pool setting. The bar was very relaxed and friendly and frequented by many locals. A touch of real Spain. I would heavily recommend this hotel. During the stay we visited a bodega for wine tasting. Went to a festival in nearby Lucerna and also had a fantastic day white water rafting at a nearby dam controlled river. Top marks for this very hospitable establishment trying it's best to make memories.
"Off the beaten track - a place that will go far"

Just back from a weeks holiday in this area of Spain. Had 2 nights at Hotel Maria Luisa and 5 nights in Iznajar . This hotel is a 3 star and needs some updating , however it's charm is that it is not pretensious , is very good value for money and has a young owner who will be going far . Not sure if I have spelt your name right Raoul but you made our stay very special with all your information about the area and it's products and for giving us a taste of Spanish cuisine . Good luck with your website and who knows maybe we will choose to get married in your lovely hotel in the near future . Will definitely return to this hotel and use as a base for travelling around the region. Many thanks the 2 brothers and 2 sisters !!!
"Visited out of season but good value"
06/11/14 Petrosey Coin, Spain
We visited in March so weather still cool and few visitors staying in the hotel. Had a dinner, bed and breakfast offer which proved very good value for money. For the evening meal we were the only diners but were given a very reasonable selection of dishes. We were given a table close to the fire and handed the tv controls so we could choose if we wanted to watch any programmes. Room was comfortable. Breakfast continental, buffet-style with good choice. The hotel is not far from Lake Iznajar and ideally placed to tour the area. Rute good centre with anis factory, ham museum and chocolate factories close by. Can be very busy around Christmas when people are visiting the chocolate Belen.
"Great value and super staff"

I stayed here with a group of friends, all of whom were in the region for a wedding in nearby Iznajar. One of the most striking things is how amazing the scenery is on the journey from Malaga airport to Rute, especially around the reservoir, which is stunning. The hotel's staff were its most impressive feature. The young manager, who spoke excellent English, was really attentive and you got the impression that nothing was too much trouble. THe bar in the hotel was also keenly priced and open late, serving good beer (and mammoth shots of spirits for not a lot) and snacks. The room was reasonably well furnished, with a TV, though the space was a little tight when it was being used in 'twin' configuration. The bathroom was nice, if basic, and was well maintained by the cleaners at the hotel. We also has a balcony with a view of the well kept garden and pool. I only managed to try breakfast, which was a straightforward continental affair. I wouldn't have said it was the freshest (lots of pre-packed croissants etc) but it was tasty and did the job). I would recommend this hotel for anyone travelling in the area, looking for good value for money, since it was certainly that.

I stayed here in June with a friend. The views on the way up to the town of Rute were spectacular. The hotel is traditional and quaint. The rooms were spacious, clean and quiet. Staff were friendly and very helpful. The new Manager is very friendly and always available to help and advise on places to go and things to do. The BBQ area is fantastic and the food is beautiful, all local organic produce, even the wine!!! The swimming pool is massive and has a good sized shallow area which is ideal if you have children with you. Highly recommended. Will definitely return!
"On the up"
05/09/13 Nige and Jane Worcester
The Maria Luisa is at the top end of town, set back from the road passing through Rute. The manager is energetic and enthusiastic about his new role there, made us very welcome and talked with intelligence about his plans for the future of the hotel. Our rooms were quiet and comfortable, with a pleasant balcony. The bar was friendly, and ideal for a couple of drinks before dinner ( there are tables outside too ) and we had a superb meal. We formed a clear impression that standards here had slipped over a number of years, but new management has sparked it into life and we enjoyed it. We were on a cycle tour, and the Maria Luisa fitted the bill perfectly for this.
"Old Fashioned and Tired"
10/12/09 hezac Bucks
This hotel has problems!! The place itself is old fashioned and dingy with small, poorly furnished and equipped rooms. The rooms at the front and East side of the hotel overlook both the car park and the main roads in and out of Rute. Rooms on the West side which used to have lovely views over the pool and olive groves have now got their own problems - several acres of olive groves right next to the hotel have been bulldozed and are now a building site on which an apartment complex is in the process of being built!!! Staff try their best to make your stay as pleasant as possible but I cannot recommend a visit to this hotel.
"48 patatas y muchas desconfianza"
08/26/14 Victoria28862 Málaga
He ido dos veces en agosto al Hotel Maria Luisa. La primera, normal, sin mucho que resaltar para lo que contrate, de lo contrario no hubiera vuelto. Pensaba ir más veces, pero esta segunda ha sido como poco, una experiencia ofensiva para mí, de la que quiero dejar constancia. En esta ocasión, solicite pensión completa. Parece ser que lo normal es hacer almuerzo y cena en el mismo día, pero a petición mía accedieron que fuese, cena y almuerzo del día siguiente para aprovechar un poco más la piscina. Note que el camarero que nos ponía el almuerzo del día siguiente nos atendía con desconfianza. Luego pude ver cómo iba a preguntar al recepcionista, si pretendíamos comer sin pagar, cosa que deduje cuando le oí a este señor, aclararle que habíamos cambiado la comida de un día por la del otro. Me sentí mal, a partir de ese momento en el que percibí tanta desconfianza. Creo que estas cosas no las deben oír ni el cliente interesado, ni los demás tampoco. Al terminar la comida, fuimos a la barra con el mismo camarero y pagamos las bebida, no incluidas en el menú, mas dos cafés que pedimos para tomar en la terraza antes de irnos. Al acabar, mi marido quiso dejar las tazas en el bar y despedirse del recepcionista, así que las llevamos y dijo: "aquí les dejamos las tazas". No le dio tiempo a decir más y este señor nos preguntó: "¿habéis pagado las bebidas y los cafés al camarero?" Le dijimos que si, 5.85 euros. Sr. Recepcionista, ¿a qué viene tanta desconfianza? es la segunda vez que voy a su hotel. ¿Acaso la vez anterior le deje a deber algo? ¿Entonces a que viene tanto acoso y desconfianza? Con semejante trato, desde luego no pienso volver. Por otra parte, puestos a su nivel, mire usted la habitación 16 que fue la que me dio. No le funciona el aire, y pague por habitación con aire. Tiene al menos 6 azulejos desaparecidos del baño y el menú, el primer plato se veía ridículo. En Málaga eso es una tapa y el segundo plato tenía 12 patatas fritas. Los dos platos de la cena mía y de mi marido tenían 12 patatas. Los del almuerzo, de mi marido y mío, tenían 12 patatas. No es mucha casualidad? las cuentan? Eso si es robar, pagar pensión completa y comer 48 patatas en total, dos personas. También es robar dar una habitación en la que no funciona el aire (¿o lo apagan para que no gasten?) Un saludo

El hotel tiene una gran piscina, ideal para niños y grandes, y ya no es de uso publico del pueblo. El primer dia no tuvimos aire acondicionado en la habitacion, pero lo arreglaron al dia siguiente. La limpieza de la habitacion era un poco justa, estaba llena de polvo. La bañera de la habitacion era grande, lo mejor! Los amenities muy justos, un día no nos pusieron gel de baño y no conseguimos que nos dieran, ya que la chica de recepción no se enteraba de mucho. Las cenas empezaban tarde y el servicio era muy lento, los niños se dormían antes de llegar el segundo plato. No obstante el hotel esta al lado de una calle llena de restaurantes, mejor pasear un rato.

Empezaré diciendo lo positivo: piscina grande con césped es agradable. La comida está bastante bien y es casera. Ahora explico lo que no me ha gustado: el jacuzzi no está en funcionamiento, los aires acondicionados de las habitaciones apenas funciona, las duchas no tienen apenas presión ( según el gerente es por el riego) explicación que no me entra en la cabeza, los muebles de la habitación no son retro( son viejos y destartalados directamente), el soporte del grifo de la ducha esta suelto y no puedes colgarlo, la puerta del balcón de madera esta comida de polvo, la habitación tenia un fuerte olor a tabaco, el desayuno no está mal pero poca variedad y los embutidos de muy mala calidad,y cuidado con los panecillos de leche porque algunos estan caducados, pocas hamacas en la piscina y si pides habitación triple es igualitaria a la doble sólo que meten una cama milimetrada de la que te cuelgan los pies y apenas tienes espacio en la habitación. Tengo que decir que el gerente es muy atento pero no nos dio soluciones.
