hacienda puerta del solHOSPITALITY runs in Carlos Baeza’s blood.

From heading over to his father’s Mallorca hotel after school in the 1980’s to working as Hotel Manager in the Hotel Riu in Mexico, Baeza is no stranger to hotels.

He has, just this month, stepped into the role of manager at the luxury, four-star Hacienda Puerta del Sol in Mijas and is loving every moment.

An economist by trade, Baeza has already started improving, refurbishing and giving a new look to the typical Andalucian ‘Cortijo’ style hotel, rare on the Costa del Sol.

The hotel is in a perfect spot: near enough to enjoy Fuengirola and Mijas Pueblo but secluded enough should you wish to escape it all.

It also has fantastic grounds, with a stunning pool, and a stylish interior full of an amazing array of antiques and curios.

The 130 air conditioned bedrooms are extremely comfortable and off season some amazing deals can be had.

If you look at TripAdvisor, customer care is where the Puerta del Sol really excels, with a great quality price ratio, a peaceful location and happy staff who really care.
