What a wonderful hotel, we should've stayed longer. All of the staff was very friendly, professional and helpful. Our room was kept very clean. We liked horseback-riding, too. Nearby places to visit are Granada, Antequera and El Torcal. If you are walkers, Alhambra has a wonderful 9km walk through a breathtaking gorge. Our breakfasts were great, the restaurants are good.... More

The hotel looks very interesting and is very well maintained. The grounds are beautiful and the huge swimming pool is a wonderful treat. The rooms are quite compact if you have a standard room but the level above are huge with lovely patios to sit out on and sunbathe. The food is great (particularly breakfast) but make a trip to...

Unique hotel. Built by andalusian craftsmen as a small andulusian village with church in the middle of a vast natural estate. Hotel concept originally developed by experienced swiss hoteliers. Excellent 'unspanish' staff. Swiss perfectionism is present everywhere, but unfortunately Barcelo changed some things, not always for the better. But Bobadilla is still a great experience, one of the best hotels... More

Great hotel. Food is fantastic, massive pool that never felt busy, suite was lovely, staff friendly&polite. What makes this hotel however is the setting, remote countryside great for riding and biking or just relaxing in the peace&quiet.

An impressive hotel at an impressive location. If you want to give yourself a treat in the Andalusian culture this is a very good place to stay. We travel with two dogs and though you have to pay dearly for them in the hotel - the room was spacious and large enough for the 4 of us. Staff is professional... More

a whitewashed red roof tiled beauty set in the countryside is a peaceful retreat. Hiking around the grounds was very pleasant. The staff were all helpful, the food was delicious -- everything was great!

Barcelo la Bobadilla is a charming inn in beautiful countryside just west of Loja. The rooms are beautiful, cozy and well decorated, but not overstated. Our room had an outdoor terrace with a tree of ripe figs nearby. The staff is uniformly courteous and helpful, and the food is delicious. There is a beautiful swimming pool, and an array of... More
