Our group of 14 adults stayed at Cortijo Cuscurro for a long weekend in May 2019 for a birthday celebration, and it is a stay to remember.
Apart from the weather being perfect during our stay (it was not too hot but warm enough, and the nature surrounding the villa was beautiful), the villa fully met our expectations and needs. There was plenty of space for all of us to sleep comfortably, cook, eat and stay by the pool. The villa was clean and provided us everything we needed: from towels and kitchen supplies to a pool and a jacuzzi. The location is secluded and maybe a bit hard to reach, but it suited us and our needs very well. The centre of Riogordo with services was about a 15min drive away.
The hosts were extremely helpful, flexible and friendly. They helped us organize transportation from and to Malaga airport, and also rides to the nearby supermarket in Riogordo village, since we didn't have our own car. We also organized a paella demonstration together with the host, and the paella was delicious! If we had some issues, questions or concerns regarding the villa, the hosts were very responsive and available.
Our whole group would warmly recommend Cuscurro, since the overall experience was definitely 5/5. We are possibly even thinking about coming back next year :)
Thank you Lisa and Julian!
A great house for a stay with friends and/or family. The house is well equiped with everything you need. Outside facilities are excellent with different spaces to meet everybody's needs.The location is also great with lots of good walks in the area. Internet connection does not always work effectively, but owners are always willing to help if you need something or have a problem.
Thank you for taking the time to send your kind review.
We were so pleased you enjoyed The Cortijo and the surrounding area.
With regards to the internet, there are three routers to cover the different areas of The Cortijo , we do find guests need to have auto connect on their devise if they are going between the different areas of the property and have to enter the password.
We have looked at a better option. Its always good to get feedback from guests, so we are aware and be able to do all we can to improve our service to our guests.
As you found , we are always happy to assist our guest during their stay
We hope to welcome you back as guest one day in the future,
Beautiful location and property. Poor management
This is a beautiful, interesting and spacious property in a stunning location. Three generations of my family recently spent a week here to celebrate my father's 80th birthday.
Overall, we enjoyed the week but our stay was significantly impaired by the owners' poor management of the property. Firstly, the property is extremely difficult to find. The directions we were given by the owner was to use google maps from the airport. The problem is that google maps recognizes treacherous little unpaved tracks as roads. Two of my sisters were separately directed by google maps down extremely dangerous dirt roads with steep drops at the side. The owners owe it to their guests to provide clear and safe directions to the property. They also should have signs on the last mile or two of tiny roads leading to the house. Other rental property's in the area had signposts but there were absolutely none for this one.
During our stay we encountered a number of electrical, plumbing and heating problems and none of them were resolved satisfactorily. The list of problems were:
1. The Jacuzzi didn't heat up.
2. Various family members were getting electrical shocks from simple appliances such as a toaster and a fan. Apparently, this was related to the malfunctioning jacuzzi.
3. The kitchen sink was clogged and mostly remained so despite our various efforts to unclog it.
4. There were not enough heaters. Some of the rooms didn't have any heater and our requests for additional heaters were unmet.
Some handymen/electricians were sent out to look at these problems but none of them were fixed. It turns out the owner was on a cruise while we were there and while she had a local friend designated to address problems, the friend (who was very nice) was not very familiar with the property and didn't know how to fix anything or even who to call to fix things.
My family was quite disappointed that we never got to use the jacuzzi and it was quite frustrating to have to deal with a clogged kitchen sink and cold bedrooms all week. We still had a really nice week despite the management issues but I really couldn't recommend anyone to stay here under the current ownership.
We are saddened to receive this review , after so many positive reviews.
With regards to the directions to the Cortijo, all guests including this guest , are sent the Google Maps and GPS location, with instructions to download the directions in their own language. We also supply a contact number should guests loose their way.
This will provide step by step instructions from the guests starting point to The Cortijo.
This will take you following a route on made up roads.
Unfortunately , during this guests stay the jacuzzi main control panel failed. We contacted an electrician immediately, who attended as soon as possible and found the problem, isolated the jacuzzi which rectified the problems in the house.
The control panel was ordered as soon as the fault was known, but did not arrive within the guests remaining 5 days stay.
Unfortunately, this was out of our control and we have offered recompense
With regard to the plumbing, a plumber was contacted, who visited the Cortijo on same day.
he advised us that he had cleared a grease blockage from the waste pipe. We were not aware this remained an issue.
The two tradesmen that attended the Cortijo are fully certified.
The Cortijo heating is as advertised, various log burners, gas mobile heaters and a small number of electric heaters. This was not requested to the property manager on her visit.
Julian and myself , look after the Cortijo and take great pride in doing so, however on this occasion, we employed a local lady who does property management in the area, to look after the Cortijo and the guests in our absence . This obviously did not work , so we will not be using them again.
Despite being on our annual holiday, we did however keep in contact with the guest throughout by e mail.
On completion of the Guest stay, we did offer recompense, for the inconvenienced cause.
It is nice to hear that the guests still had a nice stay in our beautiful Cortijo and surrounding area.

Wonderful spacious property set in a breathe taking location
Hosts Lisa and Julian cannot do enough to ensure that your stay is one to remember. Lovely clean spacious villa with great amenities and superb wifi. Loved it! Will book again!
So pleased that you enjoyed your stay
We try as hard as posible to ensure our guests have a good stay in our beautiful CORTIJO
Would love to have you back as you were perfect house guests , leaving it all in great order .
Place was excellent
The Villa was to a good standard. The Owners were very professional and provided us with all the information we needed. The only thing I didn't like was the Villa was far from children's activities and roads were too narrow and found it difficult to drive. Because of the heat there were too many lizards coming into the villa which I was afraid of. However everything else was top notch
Thank you for taking time to review the Cortijo.
We are glad you were happy with the Cortijo. The lizards for some guests is part of the charm, sorry to hear you were scared. Closing the windows and doors does deter them, but they are totally harmless and something that goes with the territory.
Most of our guests children are delighted just to spend pool days at the Cortijo, however there are parks and a large public pool plus other activities in the Village of Riogordo which is 10 minutes, should you want a break. The waterpark is also a great day out.
15 of us had a great stay at Cortijo Cuscurro. Check in and check out was all very easy and Lisa was on hand if we had any questions. I would definitely recommend the paella, it was well worth it!
Thanks for taking the time to write a lovely review.
So glad you all had a great stay at our CORTIJO
Doing the Paella was a pleasure and you were a great group to have staying.
Thanks for leaving the house on good order and we hope to welcome you back again one day

Het Cortijo ligt op slechts 10 minuten van het prachtige traditionele witte dorp Riogordo.

Het meer van Vinuela is Appox 15 minuten rijden van Riogordo met een prachtig landschap en verschillende restaurants met uitzicht op het meer.
