A great location to explore Granada from. The cave apartment was just what we required. Clean,relatively spacious (I'm 6'2) with a comfortable bed and decent bathroom, in a quiet area. We enjoyed sitiing outside having our breakfast, just taking it easy. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, even if their English isn't brilliant. They told us where the local... More

The caves were a really great place to stay in Granada, facilities were fantastic and the staff were really helpful. The location was great in the Albacin, which allowed exploration of this area, great views of the hills and the Alhambra. Would recommend to anyone.

I read a blog on tripadvisor that said that visitors to Granada must experience staying in the caves and boy, am I glad I did just that!! Getting there - Not much of an issue. We took a cab that dropped us a few meters from the entrance. We had intimated the owner of our arrival and he was there... More

I'm so happy I found Cuevas El Abanico. It was a special treat to stay here. The room is very pretty and homey and you have everything you need in the small kitchen. The bed was comfortable with good linens and since you are in a cave, you sleep very well. The owner was very kind although we only saw... More

My husband and I stayed in a small studio cave for two nights in October and it was one of the highlights of our traveling life so far. I expected a much more taxing walk from the center of town based upon other reviews but we did not find it difficult or excessively long at all. The views of the... More

Experience Cuevas El Albanico. The grotto is on a unique spot straight across the Alhambra. A very friendly host welcomed us. The first thing you see is a beautiful private terrace. In the cave you will be surprised by the athmosphere. We had the 3 room appartment. It was great. Small kitchen and two bedrooms. It was pleasure, fun and... More

My husband and I stayed at Cuevas el Abanico during the hottest week in July. We absolutely loved this fantastic little cave. The caves have a constant temperture, which is much cooler than outside, especially when it is 40 degrees (around 90's) outside. The property owners are super sweet and gave us a map of Granada, along with highlighted routes... More

Hidden, because yes, it is hard to find but once you do it is definitely a gem! stayed in a studio with a kitchenette. it definitely has a bed and breakfast feel. We purchased food to make our own breakfasts and appreciated lots of essentials that were provided...olive oil, salt, sugar, creamer and coffee. The host couldn't have been nicer!... More

My family & I stayed in a spacious & clean cave during Semana Santa. The service at Cuevas el Abanico is warm & the neighborhood, Sacromonte, fascinating. My kids enjoyed exploring the hotel's grounds & area around it. Our only disappointment was the weather: it rained nearly everyday &, as a consequence, our cave was cold & damp. We had... More

My husband and I stayed at Cuevero El Abanico for 2 nights and loved our accommodation. Consuelo was helpful in marking on the map directions and walking times plus bus numbers (which we did not need to use). The accommodation allows for self catering if you feel the need. A washing machine is available on the rooftop plus iron/ ironing... More
