Arrived exhausted, left re-fuelled. Lots of family fun by the pool. Staff super friendly. Would highly recommend for families in need of a recharge. Mix of nationalities made for a nice change...great for our kids to enhance their non-verbal communication skills!!

I'm on the last day of my holiday with 2 young children (3 and 15months). Architecturally lovely hotel and grounds with stunning views of the region. Rooms are dated but nice, cleaned to a very high standard. Restaurant staff are professions with a good attitude. The cooked food is good, but lacking in variety. Salads are disappointing, especially considering the... More

We loved every aspect of La Bobadilla. Stayed for 4 nights at the end of a 2 week holiday. Welcome, room, pool and grounds all perfect. Staff so friendly and always smiling. Breakfast was stunning - all food fresh with the perfect variety available for all ages. Evening meals slightly overpriced and they definitely need a less formal restaurant than... More

We had a wonderful honeymoon at La Barcelo Bombadilla. The staff, hotel, grounds, faclilities and general feel of the hotel were excellent. We felt the food was overpriced in some restaurants and that there could have been a wider price level. But overall we couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough. Thank you!

Friendly helpful staff, good service, good food (especially El Cortija). Average dinner cost for 3 and 1 child 170 euros. Poolside service a bit slow (except Christina who was great (3 drinks poolside apx 30 euros). Hotel is 35 years old, my room was in need of updating and smelled (Room 71) and patio area unappealing.

It is quite unusual for us to splash out on such an extravagant hotel but we thought we would treat ourselves for a week. Pros: Huge hotel with lots of space. No sense of intrusion from other tourists. Amazing pool. Spacious and well-designed. Always enough sunloungers. Helpful staff around the pool. Great breakfast, again, plenty of space. Good choice of... More

So restful. You can be as active as you want. Massive swimming pool, horse riding on good horses and two suitable for children. great food and excellent rooms. They really know how to look after you, but it is not cheap. My first visit but my family have been back many times

My wife and I have stayed here 5 times and taken our daughter for 3 of those. We simply love it at La Bobadilla. The rooms are amazing and decorated beautifully.

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
