Stayed in this beatiful and isolated hotel in June with my family of 2 young children. The hotel is 25 min drive from Garanda city and used to be an old Cortijo (Andalusian farm house). We stayed in one of the newer rooms and quality is very good and clean. The small hotel also has a small pool. The staff... More

We stayed at La Almunia del Valle three nights on our 10 day road trip trough Spain. I am not exaggerating when I say that this part of our trip was our favorite. If you are in the area visiting the Alhambra perhaps or Granada in general you'd really miss something special if you don't spend a few nights here.... More

A breathtaking view of the Sierra Nevada, delicious dinners with excellent selection of wines, nice and cosy room. And of course very helpful and friendly staff. The time we spent in this hotel was memorable. there's nothing to dislike.

This hotel is absolutely perfect for a quite break for two in the mountains. The previous reviews speak for themselves and we totally endorse the previous reviews. We have never been back twice to any hotel but this will change for La Almunia del valle. The staff, particularly Maria couldn't do enough for you, stunning views, great room (superior double)...

Really great stay. Food was fabulous, view excellent, rooms were so nice we took photos to steal some of the ideas! Manuel and Pat were lovely hosts that did everything they could to make you feel welcome and the feel really was like staying in the home of friends. Best part were Bonnie, Clyde and Kris (the resident cats and... More

We had a stunning room with an incredible view of the hills. It was like staying somewhere out of a magazine. We had the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. Friendly and helpful staff. We stayed for 4 nights and ate at the hotel for 2. The food was fantastic - very tasty and everything freshly cooked. The... More

I can only endorse what has already been said by many other travellers. Genuine hosts in delightful surroundings make your stay memorable - the views, food, rooms are exceptionally good. Yes, not the easiest hotel to find but well worth following the excellent hotel directions. We will return at some time in the future. Exceptional value for money.

Ok, don't expect 5 star amenities such as Wifi, mini bar, turndown etc. But do expect a stunning location with views you won't forget, genuine staff who are extremely helpful and if you like dogs a beautiful in house Retriever called Christina. It's not far to drive to get to Alhambra and the Sierra Nevada so strongly consider this hotel... More

A stay at the Almunia del Valle is priceless. It is more than your money worth. The road leading to the hotel may be a challenging experience for some but once your reach the hotel you have the most fantastic views. The hotel has a 3 star classification but a 5 or 6 star classification could also have been appropriate.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
La Almunia del Valle is a boutique hotel, distinguished with the Q for Turistic Quality. We are situated in one of the most beautiful spots in the Sierra Nevada Natural Park located in the municipality of Monachil, Granada. At just 8 kilometers form downtown Granada, the hotel gives the visitor the luxury to be able to enjoy a natural setting of the valley, surrounded by the high picks, and crossed by the river that gives its name to the village Monachil where light and silence claim our senses. The owners Jose Manuel Plana & Patricia Merino supervise daily and personally every detail, the high level of attention given to our guest by the hotel staff makes the stay in La Almunia an unforgettable experience ... more   less
