This is a good hotel , of course one expects much of a 5star GL hotel. Honestly, I am not fully satisfied. All was fine, no doubt, but the little extra touch failed to make it an extraordinary experience, what a hotel of this level should be. A few examples: welcoming at arrival was checking in, not welcoming. Service at... More

Bobadilla is in the heartland of Andalucia, about 40 minutes drive north from Malaga airport, or about the same heading west from Granada. This is my second stay, the first being about 17 years ago! Not a lot has changed, which on most accounts is really a good thing. The property sits amongst olive groves on a few hundred acres.... More

Love, love, love this place. Expensive but worth it. Only stayed 3 nights but will be back for longer next time. Found the bed a bit hard but the room was wonderful including the bathroom. All the staff were so nice and their English was excellent so no problems communicating. Wine tasting with Juan was such fun and the wine... More

It's a beautiful luxurious hotel but with limited options. We stayed for 2 days with our family. The hotel has an old hacienda look, with excellent rooms, very good service and nice pool area. The access to other cities and other restaurants options are, at least, 30 min away. The hotel restaurant has a beautiful view and good food, but... More

La Bobadilla is not just a hotel: it is an experience. It has everything you could wish for. Luxury of international standard, yet with the intimacy of your own home. The views from the restaurants La Finca (outside) and El Cortijo (outside and inside) will remain with you for a lifetime! As will the service of this hotel. Always friendly,... More

We stayed here four nights in June and loved every minute. Our room was huge, big comfortable bed, large bathroom and a balcony. The hotel is very clean and it never feels overcrowded. There is plenty of space around the pool area. We hired mountain bikes free of charge and explored around the hotel, also tried one of the complimentary... More

Our family of 5 spent a truly memorable week at La Bobadilla. We flew into Malaga and drove the 45 minutes to this beautiful resort. There isn't much around the hotel but day trips are all within easy reach. Prior to arriving I was in constant contact with the staff planning our vow renewal in their lovely chapel.

This hotel is ideal for those who look for a quiet place. You can play tennis. You can also ride a horse, walk or bike - but after 3 days it may a little boring, even on 350 ha private grounds. So prepare yourself rather for dolce far niente. Staff excellent. Rooms excellent. Restaurants - goat and rabbit excellent, fish... More

This gem of a hotel is about an hour's drive from Granada airport and about half an hour from Malaga's Santa Ana train station. Set in its own 900 acres of forest land, it is an oasis of peace and luxury. The onsite restaurants are fantastic (even for a vegetarian like me) although they may be a bit pricey. There... More
