A truly wonderful place. If you asked me one place in the world that I would want to go it would be LaBobadilla in Andalucia!

Located near Loja, in the heart of the Andalusia,La Bobadilla is a hotel inspired by its surroundings, the style is a traditional Mediterranean village. Bobadilla uses a thermal biomass system in place of gas, drastically reducing CO2. It' a good choice. Godd also the gourmat buffer for lunch and the elegant ambience for dinner. For the guest: tennis court, a... More

This was my second stay at Barcelo la bobadilla and was every much as good as the first if not better. We opted for a junior suite this time, and the amount of space, not only with the living area but in the bathroom is huge. Everything is designed to a traditional andalucian style with white walls and dark wood... More

Beautiful grounds in the middle of nowhere. Very accomodating staff and restaurant. Both restaurants were lovely, wonderful views and very good food. Breakfast was great. Would have given the hotel a five except for the quality of the beds. For a five star resort I would have expected a good pillowtop mattress. The bedding was very uncomfortable despite the staff...

The hotel lies well hidden within the Andalusian landscape. The large domain lends itself to a whole range of outdoor sports/activities. the hotel itself is pure luxury, with very nice rooms, a spa and a large swimming pool. The restaurant is good, with a stunning view over the mountains from the terrace.

BLB is located in the middle of nowhere...and that's exactly what you want to visit all Andalucia by car. This huge estate is at the exact cross road of the two main freeways of Andalucia : Sevilla-Granada and the Malaga/Marbella-Córdoba. You must have a rental car but it's a strategic spot to discover the 4 mains area of the region... More

We spent three nights at La Bobadilla with our fifteen-month old toddler. Our stay was perfect from beginning to end. The buildings themselves are fantastic, with immense glass windows and bubbling fountains. We paid EUR 30 per night for an upgrade to a junior suite, which had a large separate living room and balcony, which meant we could continue to... More

Now a mature hotel, but must have been amazing when first opened, and still very comfortable & welcoming. It's spacious and certainly there's a pride in the service the attentive staff offer. However, we found the food quality in the two quality restaurants kept disappointing, though highly priced and well-presented.
