Stayed in this hotel a few times and have no complaints. My review is for the restaurant which we visited on Saturday 2nd. It's peach season here in Benalua so the restaurant did a peach themed meal. Four courses, two drinks and a coffee for only €20! The food was fab, all the courses contained peaches but it was not... More

I have always wanted to stay in a cave and found the experience surprisingly cool, literally! No aircon needed but possibly a blanket. These caves are very comfortable with kitchens and sitting rooms and everything one needs. Nice pool too. The restaurant produced a very tasty knuckle of pork and our hostess was very helpful and friendly. Couldn't find anything... More

This is a small resort of 18 caves, a restaurant, free laundry and pool situated about 8km from Guadix and about five minutes stroll from the small bars and stores of Benalua. There is free parking and it is easy to locate, though the most important point is probably that the caves are comfortable and fun, the gardens are excellently... More

We stayed in cave 15 in April 2014. The place is absolutely amazing! The cave was fitted with all modern fittings, including an iron and board. The decoration was of a high standard. We had two rooms (each with en suite) and there was plenty of room. There was a wardrobe in each room and plenty of drawers. The kitchen... More

Firstly you will never get a couple of more helpful hosts than Maribel and Sylvia who helped us endlessly before our trip sending train times and organising taxis. Cuevas La Granga is in the heart of the Troglodyte region and is accessible by train (short taxi ride from Guadix and can be walked from Benlua but takes approx 25mins) The... More

We stayed in cave 17 Mamabel for 2 nights as part of a guided cycling holiday. First impression of the whole place was amazement. My wife & I shared this 2 bedroom cave with two others in our group. Both bedrooms had their own bathroom and a shared kitchen & living area. The kitchen would have graced a reasonable sized... More
