Initially we wanted to stay in a hotel closer to town which was right outside a bus stop but as we waited too long to make the booking prices went up drastically (we stayed over a week-end) that we decided to look somewhere else. This is how we came across Finca Aldabra. Location-wise I think it would be great for a longer stay for guests wanting to visit Granada and the Sierra Nevada, however we only stayed for 2 nights and only wanted to visit Granada so the 6 km drive to the next bus stop was a bit of a schlep, especially when coming back at night after a few glasses of cerveza, but parking was really easy and it was a straight forward ride into the center. We arrived at around midnight (thanks to Airberlin who had major delays AND lost our luggage) but the late check-in was no problem whatsoever. When we finally got to the room it smelled quite a bit of sewerage from the bathroom but it disappeared after we had taken a shower and did not reappear during our stay (I assume that the room was not in use for a few days and apparently this is quite normal in old Spanish buildings). Our room was fairly small but had all we needed, including a nice balcony overlooking the valley, stunning view! Unfortunately there was a bit of noise from a nearby nightclub which did not keep us from sleeping but it just did not fit into such a beautiful mountain setting. There is a lovely pool which we made use of and some pool chairs. The garden in general could do with a bit of maintenance and cleaning up but then again, it is a farm in a way and also added to the charm. Breakfast was included and was really lovely, decent coffee, cereals, cheese, meats, fresh fruit, jams etc. The owner was really nice too and she gave us some valuable information on how to get to the Alhambra with the bus etc. We loved Granada and our stay at Finca Aldabra and would definitely recommend but for a longer stay.
