stayed at the espada twice and enjoyed the hotel and surroundings, we always rent a car and the parking is free, most hotels charge 10 to 15euro per day.
the food is excellent as is the staff, the house wine is a bargain @ 8euro
also the local bars/resturants are very close and you must try FRANCOS BAR PIZZA just 50mts
on the right out of the front entrance, his pasta/pizzas are the best, every night the italian community visit .
we will book the espada for our next visit cannot fault it
