The property covers an area of 300,000 square metres, with a built-up area of 5,000 square metres distributed over several facilities.

The hotel features 30 rooms, several dining options and various event spaces, as well as an outdoor swimming pool, a spa of over 400 m2 and a wide range of sports facilities including a gymnasium, tennis court and paddle tennis court. It also boasts the prestigious Yeguada San José Equestrian Club, which organises various competitions throughout the year and will continue to be managed by the owner.

The new operator, Summum Hotel Group is a family-run hotel company with 50 years' experience in the tourism and catering sector, who has recently expanded its activities into new sectors such as real estate and technology.
