First of all, I have to admit that this place is not as convenient as staying in the town. Around the place, there is only one restaurant and a few Flamenco places. To reach the cave, you need to hike up the hills for about ten minutes. In addition, this is not a "hotel"-- more like a bed and breakfast but the host is not there 24 hours. However, I do think it’s worth the work.
Consuelo, the lady who came to pick us up when receiving my phone call from the bottom of the hill, is one of the owners who works there. Although her English was limited, she was very enthusiastic in helping. We were able to communicate and she was very helpful booking taxis and performance tickets for us.
The cave is situated in beautiful mountains, very quiet and homey, and the surrounding area is beautiful. Not far from the cave, you can see The Alhambra glowing at night. My mother and I had dinner at the roof top of that only restaurant, with the view of the Alhambra. This is quite an unforgettable experience for us.
