Savour the El Sarmiento Breakfast

A typical Andalusian breakfast consists of a fresh cup of Nespresso coffee and a light and fluffy tostada – that’s toasted bread, topped with grated tomato, olive oil, and salt. Additionally, we offer various options tailored to your preferences, ranging from egg dishes, assorted breads, cheese, and hearty cold cuts, to delightful homemade jams and local honey. Choose from fresh fruit or a fruit salad, freshly squeezed fruit juice, a selection of muesli, and more to kick off your morning.

Relaxation for Adults Only

Unwind on a holiday where you get to decide how you want to spend your time. Whether it’s lounging by the pool, indulging in a soothing massage, savouring a refreshing bowl of chilled gazpacho while dipping some warm bread into olive oil – it’s entirely up to you. If you fancy a glass of some of the finest Spanish wines with your lunch or dinner, that’s no issue either! Our “Adults Only” policy guarantees a peaceful atmosphere without the noise of children, allowing you to relax without the need to act as a role model.

Our Culinary Highlights

Once a week, we offer our popular 7-course-Gourmet menu, complete with a delightful nibble because a good wine should always have a tasty companion. we serve our popular Gourmet menu (of course with a little something, cause a good wine should always be accompanied by a delicious nibble.)

We’ll sit comfortably on our large sun terrace by the pool, enjoy a good glass of Cava or any other apéritif, chat and laugh, and then we’ll move on to a finger-licking dinner!

Sustainability: A Commitment to a Better World

At Cortijo El Sarmiento we firmly believe that sustainable holidays are the future. Our family-owned boutique hotel is dedicated to enhancing its eco-friendly practices and contributing to the preservation of nature, fostering a sustainable future for our planet.

Here’s what we’re doing in terms of sustainable holidays:

Solar System

Benefiting from approximately 3000 hours of sunlight annually in our location, we rely on solar power to produce nearly 100% of our hot water needs.

Photovoltaic System

Our advanced photovoltaic system, with optimal alignment and state-of-the-art technology, fulfils our daily energy requirements.

Biological Wastewater Treatment Plant

Being situated outside the village, we operate our own wastewater treatment plant, ensuring clean water for our irrigation system.


Despite the increased workload in a larger setting, we diligently separate and recycle our waste.

Cleaning and washing products

We've transitioned to ecologically degradable cleaning products and detergents, eliminating EDTA, phosphates, phthalates, nickel, and paraffin from our product range.


Our focus is on regional and seasonal produce from local growers to reduce transport distances and packaging.


Drinking Water

We've adopted sustainable beverage practices, eliminating cans and plastic bottles in favour of reusable glass bottles. Our water dispenser offers cold, room temperature, and cold sparkling water.

Industrial / Tap Water

Water-saving systems are now installed on all taps and shower heads throughout the house.

Human Resources

In our commitment to sustainable holidays, we prioritize working with locals. Our partners provide official invoices, and employees receive legal contracts with social security, health insurance, and pension benefits.


Our Cortijo El Sarmiento is fully registered with the Junta de Andalucia (CR/AL/000039) and since the beginning of 2022 also with Ecostars.

Longevity of Furniture

When selecting furniture for our Hotel, we prioritize longevity to ensure durability over the years.

Eco-friendly Bathroom Amenities

Carefully chosen environmentally friendly soap and refillable shower gel, along with sustainable packaging, minimize our environmental impact.

Reducing Waste

Our breakfast avoids disposable packaging for individual portions of butter or jam, opting for more sustainable alternatives.

Continuous Improvement

We constantly evaluate and challenge ourselves to improve sustainability practices for a stable long-term balance.

Supporting Local Businesses

Picking an owner-managed hotel like ours helps support local businesses, as your money stays in the area, which contributes to the development of Mojácar and the province of Almeria.

Water Conservation

Given the preciousness of water in Almería, we encourage guests to reuse towels and be mindful of water usage.

Air Conditioning Usage

To conserve energy, we request guests to turn off the air-conditioning when not in the room and avoid opening windows while it is running.

CO2 Offset for Flights

We recommend guests offset the carbon footprint of their flights, offering to refund half of the compensation payment.
