Driving from Oliva to Granada we got over it & stopped at a service centre for wifi to look at options. Choose Cueva El Guindas as it was not too far off our route. Booked at 5pm, got address, left wifi and put it into car GPS, 10 minutes. Rookie mistake, GET DIRECTIONS FROM BOOKING SITE, gps wrong, ended up...

While driving through Spain we stumbled into this little hidden gem. For a family of 5 the accommodation was outstanding and surprisingly roomy. The wifi was also a massive surprise you would think that there would be no service but was better than the hotels we stayed in. We arrived latish and hadn't organised our dinner plans we asked the...

Our family of 5 loved our stay at Cueva El Guindas. We had a spacious cave for 6 which is attached to 2 other caves and can be configured to hold 12 if needed. Our cave was so cool throughout even in the middle of the summer heat - cooler than most of the air conditioned hotels we've stayed at....

Massive bed in this unique cave house. There were 3 caves round a nice swimming pool and a couple of others elsewhere. The cave was equipped with everything we required from hairdryer and shower soap to charcoal for the individual BBQ. Lidl and Mercadon about 3k away to get supplies for the BBQ. Wasn't cold enough to need logs for...

We booked a room at this cave hotel when we were going to hiking in the Sierra de Baza one day and around the Jablacón the next day. This was our first experience with a cave hotel so we didn't know what to expect. WHAT a great place! The owner lives on site and was ready to help us with...

What a wonderful experience. The cave was incredible and in March, the wood burner with an ample supply logs was most inviting and welcome. What a difference this was to a normal hotel room. So comfortable with great beds. The hosts were tremendous,and breakfast was nothing short of a feast. Couldn't recommend Cueva El Guindas highly enough. Everyone should experience...

What a delight. Looked interesting on the website but was a rustic heaven from the minute we arrived until we left the next day with a bag full of fruit and vegetables from the owner Pepe ! All the home luxuries you could want in a rural setting with lovely pool and barbeque area. Quirky touches everywhere from upside-down flower...

A fascinating place, off the beaten track, a real treat, the cave was immaculate, spotlessly clean with everything that was needed for a very comfortable stay. Pepe was a great host, cooked our lamb for us on the barbecue, returned it with proper sea salt flakes and some of the local chorizo for us to try! Delicious. A great experience,...

I can't say much more than that I thought I would never stay in a cave but what an experience. The owner was so accommodating and the room fabulous. Big double bed, great outside terrace to eat. Had a lovely breakfast. My wife now wants to buy a cave house. Looks like we'll be back.
