We booked the San Nicolas Suites as a last minute getaway - and what a find!
We stayed in The Boudoir- and although other travellers claim The Sultan is a little nicer - our room was wonderful - with a lovely private terrace. The little touches that the owners have added to the room, made it extra special. There is absolutely everything you could possibly need - including a fully stocked fridge, hamper and mini bar!!!
The hosts we can't speak more highly of. After a delayed flight and loss of baggage (!) - Ruth sorted everything out for us - for which we were/are so very grateful. Nothing was too much trouble. Her recommendations for beaches, places to visit, restaurants etc are definitely worth listening to.
La Herradura itself is located about a 10 minute stroll from the Suites - but note that San Nicolas is situated on a steepish hill - so be prepared for the walk to and from the beach! It's so hard after a day on a sun lounger!!!!!
There is a lovely local market, and the beach chiringuitos are fabulous for a nice drink at the end of the day!
I would highly recommend the San Nicolas Suites and La Herradura if you want some time out, good typically spanish food and drink, and the ability to visit some amazing places nearby (eg Granada and The Alhambra Palace).
A week definitely wasn't long enough for us!
