“Excellent B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Granada. Only for the views of the valley you should go to this B&B. We had a corner room with a terrace overlooking the property and the valley.
There is a nice garden with a small swimmingpool which is perfect after a day in Granada, here you can enjoy the tranquillity with a beer from the pool bar.

About the breakfast: in one word SUPERB!!! There is a large choice of fresh fruit, cereals, bread, cheeses and meat. You get fresh orangejuice at the table and coffee or tee.

You will need a car to get to this B&B, driving distance to Granada and Alhambra is 20 minutes.

Maunuel and Patricia welcome you into their home as the valued guests that you are. Patricia cooks like a dream, simple? Local produce prepared to order. Lovely wine to accompany. And on a perfect setting. Breakfasts on the terrace equally enjoyable. It's simple, the rooms comfortable, and well priced. All we would have asked for is wifi on the rooms and not just on the terrace. We will come back if we can.

Fabulous hotel, great views / location. Patricia was a fantastic hostess and great cook. Seriously, there is no need to go into Granada for dinner, let Patricia and her team serve you a 5 course dinner in beautiful surroundings and watch to light change over the hills as the sun sets. Dinner is served on the balcony at 8.00pm, at around 8.45pm you start to hear the sound of bells in the distance and then slowly, a herd of goats comes into view, being moved from field to field - idyllic! Room (superior) was great, comfortable bed, sunken bath, ipod docking station, private balcony. You won't regret booking hear, like us, your only regret will be not staying for longer - 3 nights was not enough!

Room Tip: Choose a superior room - great value for money!

We had a wonderful welcome from Manuel and Patricia. A charming couple with a relaxed yet highly professional approach to their guests. All staff were very well trained and friendly. The food was just wonderful and a highlight to our week's stay, as it was served on the terrace with the fabulous views. Nothing was too much trouble for Manuel and Patricia and they were so helpful with arranging flamenco shows and guiding us in our trips to the Sierra Nevada. The location was perfect for Granada. Just a few miles to drive and then back to the perfect temperature of the hills. Granada itself was a fantastic city with so much to see and enjoy. We will return.

Room Tip: We had one of the newer rooms (2 available). Very comfortable and equipped, with an excellent balony...

What an absolutely beautiful hotel! It was so peaceful, the view was absolutely outstanding and just fantastic service - so thoughtful with all the advice and we felt so welcome. Definitely have a night in with the dinner, we had massages as well which were fantastic. Lovely walk near by which we'd wish we'd had longer to do. Grenada only 16 euros away in a cab, so pleased we decided to stay out here rather than in the town - it was an extra treat to be in the mountains. We had room 12 which was gorgeous, the shower was as fab as it looks in the photos and the bed was so comfortable. We loved it here - can't wait to come back for longer next time!

Room Tip: Room 12 is gorgeous

We booked into La Almunia based on a picture of the view and the good reviews on Tripadvisor. We weren't disappointed.

The welcome we received was genuinely very friendly from the owners and their staff. The food was good (we had one dinner in). The breakfast was also very good, especially on our second morning when the weather was nice enough to sit on the terrace looking at those lovely views. One of the things we liked is that the Hotel is relatively small and has a good lounge area for pre and post dinner drinks. This adds to the convivial atmosphere as the limited number of guests did chat to each other.

It's location is also very good for getting to the Alhambra (surely one of the wonders of the world). It's on the southern side of Granada like the Alhambra. You drive a few miles back towards Granada and then join the southern ring road and follow signs. This takes you straight to the Alhambra car park. We left our car there for about 12 hours at a cost of about 17 euros.

The road to the Hotel goes through a couple of large villages - you need to follow the Hotel's directions. After leaving the last one it becomes quite narrow and twisty, but it is tarmac all the way. It wasn't a problem.

We would recommend this place.

This has to be the highlight of our tour of the great southern historic sites of Spain. Ideally situated for Grenada and the Alhambra, La Almunia offered a peaceful, sophisticated yet relaxed 'home' to return to after a day's sight-seeing. We had one of the terrace rooms, with fabulous views and privacy. The design and decor are outstanding, with a dramatic sunken mosaic shower, and crisp white bed linens accessorized with cerise pillows. Patricia and Manuel are caring and attentive hosts, meeting guests' varied needs with warmth and interest. Patricia's evening meals are an outstanding experience, beautifully served by Carmen, and prepared with love and attention to detail from locally sourced produce. Breakfasts on the terrace overlooking the mountains was varied and plentiful; a wonderful way to get energized for the day's activities. La Almunia seems to suit anyone from "boomer" travellers to hikers to families. It was the best place we stayed at on our trip - we loved it!

Room Tip: Our terrace room was just beautiful with superb views and a private outside sitting area.
