A very friendly and helpful staff and a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere. At breakfast the bread came in warm straight fro the bakery shop and there was a nice variety. Perhaps some cofee/tea facilities throughout the day would add to the pleasure of a stay here.

Stayed here for just one night, but would have been very happy to stay longer! Lovely house, with central dining courtyard, small bar (great gin and tonic!) and a small number of rooms. The English couple who run the hotel are very pleasant and welcoming. The bedroom was large enough, very clean, good beds, and quiet - what more can...

Located in the most unexpected place on the way to the city of Granada, we stumbled upon this hotel that is really a mix between guest house and hotel. Characterized by three words: comfort, service, and location, this lodge offers an authentic and unique experience. Its clean and modern design allows a comfortable and cozy feel with an open lobby...

This lovely hotel is in a charming village at the foot of the Sierra Nevada. It was a great base to explore the Alpujarras, which was our intention but it is also only around 20 minutes to the coast and the centre of Granada. The hotel was beautifully decorated and very clean and each room has its own theme. The...
