I found David to lack any enthusiasm, i found David also to be quite rude and careless. The mountain biking would suit beginners only. I would not recommend this to anyone

Just got back from a three night stay in Orgiva. The property although basic had everything we needed. Shower, pool, wifi and space for outside eating. It was perfectly located extremely close to the mountains and local villages but far enough not to be bothered by noise. The property is located just off the main road (marked by a BP petrol garage!!) which was easy to get to from Malaga and then find. Orgiva is very small but has a couple of grocery shops, a lovely restaurant and the best bakery! We also travelled to a nearby village; Lanjaron, which has an ice cream shop and some more restaurants as it is slightly bigger. We were road biking and there was loads of routes of various sizes. David was lovely. He provided us with maps to use for exploring and provided muesli, cereal, eggs, bread, milk and fruit. We will definitely be back!

We've just got back from 4 nights staying with Biking Andalucia. Dave was a fantastic host and kept us thoroughly entertained throughout. He demonstrated an excellent local knowledge of the mountain bike trails that he guided us on. The accommodation was basic, but fairly well equipped. The local town of Orgiva (less than 5 minutes walk away), is packed with plenty of places to eat and drink. Highly recommended for those that want a relatively cheap get away to experience the excellent cycling trails. Hope to see you again! Ben, Tim and Steve.

Bespoke bike tour. 534658747 We did a three day trip across the Sierra Nevada with biking Andalusia and it was an amazing expedition. We were picked up from Malaga, checked out the bikes in Orgiva (trek superfly hard-tail bikes from sierranevada cycle company - really great bikes). Overnight in Orgiva (I'd recommend Pizza'n'love for dinner). Day 1: A white knuckle drive with an ascent of 1500m. You can ride this but we had a tough 40km ride to Capiliera via gravel road, gnarly single track and open tracks via irrigation channels. Beautiful scenery and picnic lunch in the forest. We overnighted in Capiliera (We booked the hotel).  Day 2: To the refuge at Poqueria. Uphill for about 24km, mostly a reasonable grade, then 3km of fast downhill to the refuge. As we were staying overnight and continuing to Granada we needed to take clothes for the refuge, snacks for 2 days and lots of water. As this was about to be taken up over 3000m, careful packing is required! The refuge is like a mix of a ski lodge and back packers hostel. Rooms of 8 bunks, communal dining. It gets cold at night but the views are glorious. Dinner is 17€, simple but filling and breakfast is 5€.  Day 3. Up and over the mountains. The track is rocky but mostly rideable and the views are worth the slog. The track leads to the top of a ski resort and then it was (mostly) gloriois downhill to Granada. An amazing trip. Great guides and well worth the effort.

Fantastic little secluded spot but close to everything. Very relaxing to enjoy & sun-bake by the pool. Enjoyed going to the markets and local Tapas everywhere. If you want to go for a hike or bike ride either mountain or road, David has all the knowledge to set you on your way to a route to suit your own pace or a challenge if you want. He has always treated us with the utmost of kind intensions and we now even call him our 'Mate'... Paco is also now our friendly fur baby. Missing the place and already looking forward to our return next Year. Cheers Suzanne & Dean xox
