“Fabulous find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

I stayed here in for about 10 days in July 2012 with a group of friends. It's a beautiful place and I would highly recommend it. Rolando and Maria are terrific hosts. It's a little tricky to find. Take the 2nd exit for Granada if travelling from Malaga/Granada. The cave appartments are off the road on a gravel track.

The caves are carved from the mountain. Most of the work was done by the Maria and Rollando. It overlooks the town and it's so peaceful a night. There's a nice pool and hot tub and enough cooking facilities to cook your meals. The real selling point of this gem is that is unique in a world where it's hard to travel without staying in a hotel chain. Cuevas de Rollando is typical of the area and it has character that's hard to find.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Medierranean cave. Have a look at the pictures on the website. They give an accurate...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We had an overall lovely time here, staying for 2 nights in the Stable Cave. Sunsets were amazing, we loved watching the bats swooping overhead. Our host, a very helpful and interesting guy looked after us well and fed us his basic but home made breakfast. We rate the home grown peach and cherry jams highly. On arrival we were assigned to the Tibet cave which we were disappointed with due to its size and proximity to the pool. When we asked to change we were delighted with our 5 room mansion, beautifully decorated and very comfortable (all except the bed).
If you visit at the beginning of September check out if the festival is happening, we just missed it unfortunately but watching the whole town throwing paint on the running man sounded great.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights on our 10 day driving tour. The cave apartment was beautifully decorated. We sat on the patio in the evenings and watched the amazing sunsets over the Sierra Nevada's. Breakfasts were simple and wholesome. Rolanda and his wife were wonderful hosts.
