Reviewed yesterday NEW

Lovely estate with walking trails and outdoor facilities. We were ready for a rest - and this place seemed just right. The only drawback was the room that we were assigned had no sunlight or view (apart from the alley / walls next door). The hotel later admonished our comments on their exit survey, essentially blaming us for not asking...

Should really keep quiet about this place. We had suites with roof terraces that were stunning. The pool is fantastic and the massages at the spa are some of the best. Food is great with a choice of restaurants. Service standards are very high.

Meals were very overpriced for what they were. Food good standard but not great. Given there is no other choice nearby, hotel isolated they really take advantage of this in terms of the quality and cost of food. Service in restaurants not great either with the exception a couple of the waiters, the youngest looking one seemed to work the...

The Bobadilla is an exceptionally beautiful property, far from the madness of the Costa del Sol. It is a refined property with acres of olive groves to explore, a nearby lake and a brilliant central location for exploring Andalucia. We visited Granada and Ronda from the property both of which were 60-90mins away. The rooms are very spacious and well...

We stayed for two nights in adjoining rooms. The rooms were very nice with great balconies on two sides. There were many family activities to be enjoyed - we played tennis and badminton, swam in the heated pool and took mountain bikes out on the trails. The hotel arranged for my girls to go horse riding, which was just by...

Nice hotel situated in a great location. However, the hotel does not deliver 5 start service. Overall good hotel and friendly staff, but a number of smaller negative observations such as the ones below affected our stay. None of them individually really bad, but just added up together - We did not have working air condition in the room (wrong...

This is a very elegant hotel set in a large rural estate. It is quiet and comfortable with the kind of professional staff that you would expect for this sort of money. The pool area is large and there is a well kept tennis court. Everything works very smoothly but it does feel like part of a hotel chain rather...

The two most disappointing features were the smells (at reception an overpowering and sickly sweet vanilla scent, general mustiness elsewhere) and the blatant untruth of the explanation given for why there was no horse riding available. The food quality and room as well as breakfast room decor did not help. This was all the ore disappointing as the exterior looks...

Exceeded our expectations at every level. The hotel building is very picturesque and the interiors are beautiful! There is a sense of calm on the whole property. The room was very large. Much larger than expected. Thoroughly clean and felt quite luxurious. The property is very quite and it was perfect for us as we just wanted to unwind and...

My wife and I stayed here for five nights while making day trips to visit the mosque at Córdoba, El Hambre in Granada and Malaga. The hotel is centrally located between these sights amidst a bucolic setting of rolling hills and olive orchards. Our suite on the ground floor was spectacular--- tastefully decorated, spacious and very comfortable. The breakfast buffet...
