Questions with answers
"What time can we check in or out?"
It is common practice to check out between 8:00 AM and 11:00 AM and check in between 4:00 PM and 8:00 PM. We would like to hear from you the time of check-in or check-out one day in advance.
"Is breakfast included and at what times?"
Yes, breakfast is always included when you book through this site. There is also a possibility for a GORDO breakfast. You must indicate this and will be charged extra. In principle breakfast is between 8.30 and 10.30 am, but if you want to leave early, we can take that into account. You never have to leave our finca with an empty stomach.
"How do we reach you?"
Our Bed and Breakfast is easily accessible by car. If you have google maps, enter Finca Gordo and Mr Google will show you the way. The GPS coordinates are 36.931616, -4.289682. Make sure you drive through the village and never take a sandy path or gravel or sand path, only the last 100 meters is gravel.
Public transport: No problem, 7 times a day from Monday to Friday between 08:00 and 20:15 there is a bus from Malaga to Riogordo. Saturday and Sunday 3 times ask for the times. It takes about 1 hour. And if you have luggage, we will be happy to pick you up from the bus station.
If you want to be picked up from Malaga airport, no problem for € 80.00 we do an airport pick-up for up to 4 people.
Are there enough parking spaces?
Our site is large enough and also has sufficient parking space behind our automatic gate. Your car is therefore safe, and as much as possible out of sight of the seats.
"Where can we sit outside?"
Our Finca is 7800 m2 in size and has a seating area in your room, but you can also sit and lie scattered throughout the site. We only like to keep our own terrace in front of the house to ourselves.
Is the pool heated?
Yes, our 8x4 meter swimming pool is heated in spring and autumn. The pool is separate from the house with sun loungers all around and where you can sunbathe privately and still enjoy the surroundings.
Are children welcome?
In principle, we would like to only accommodate adults, not because we are against children, but to be able to guarantee the peace and privacy of the other guests. Would you rent all the rooms with one or 2 families, then you are more than welcome with the children. We assume that you also keep an eye on them yourself. A fellow BB owners Marc and Madelon refer to it with a wink: child-unfriendly accommodation.
Can we rent the entire complex?
Yes, of course you can rent the entire complex if no other guests have been booked yet. Please keep in mind that we do live on the Finca ourselves. If you want to rent the complex, we can arrange everything you want in consultation. Parties are also possible and if you want more guests to sleep, we have contacts in the area where we can accommodate your (extra) guests.
Do you also provide meals?
Of course we provide breakfast, but we can also provide other drinks and meals such as lunch and dinner.
Are we allowed to use our own food and drink at the Finca?
The honest answer: rather not. Preparing meals is really impossible. But we understand if you have bought a really nice wine or something special to enjoy it. So we will not stop you in that. We would appreciate it if you use the "honesty bar" as much as possible.
There are also restaurants and shops in the village
Yes enough real Spanish restaurants and shops such as supermarket and grocer, butcher, bakery. There is even a museum and 2 churches. On arrival you will find in your room an extensive list of most restaurants, including a better restaurant with a chef who has cooked in star restaurants.
What is an Honesty Bar and how does it work
Finca Gordo offers on the veranda or in winter the common room, a so-called Honesty bar, a well-stocked fridge with soft drinks, Spanish wines and various beers. Savory snacks are also available in the bar.
We ask you to write down what you have used and the costs will be charged upon departure.
