We have just spent three nights at this hotel. Lovely quiet location within 15 minutes drive from the centre of Granada. Great views from our bedroom window. Enjoyed the freshly squeezed orange juice in morning. Staff very helpful. Would have been nice to have had a kettle in our room or bottled water but other than that all great. Julie... More

We stayed just one night on our way through Andalusie. Very nice lodge/hotel on a great location. It is in Cumbres Verdes national park and close to the Sierra Nevada. You can start hiking right out of your hotel. Breakfast buffet was basic.

This is a great little rural hotel set up in the mountains close to the Sierra Nevada. I have stayed here twice, first in August 2006 and in June of this year. The standard rooms with the balconies are the best in my opinion, but take a jacket as it gets pretty cold in the evening even in August. Last... More
