“Great little rural hotel with the most amazing views!”
Reviewed September 10, 2007

This is a great little rural hotel set up in the mountains close to the Sierra Nevada. I have stayed here twice, first in August 2006 and in June of this year.
The standard rooms with the balconies are the best in my opinion, but take a jacket as it gets pretty cold in the evening even in August. Last time we stayed in the upgraded room which has the best views and a jacuzzi bath. Yes the views are amazing, but you dont have a balcony to sit outside other than at the front. I don´t think its worth the extra money apart from the size, bathroom is a little dated too.

The pool looks nice, but I have not been in. There are a few sunloungers to relax too. Breakfast in the morning is served alongside the pool, buffet style. Not a great choice but fairly standard in Spain.

There are some great little bars in La Zubia itself, only a 10 minute drive away, and of course you get a free tapas every time you order a drink..

I havent eaten in the hotel, but the owners are very friendly and she offered to cook us a menu of the day if we wanted. there is a restaurant close to the hotel as well although it has been closed both times I have visited.
One tip, if you want to visit the Alhambra book in advance!

  • Liked — Sipping a glass of wine on the balcony looking out over Granada
  • Disliked — Dated bathroom in the suite & lack of hot water for the jacuzzi
  • Stayed June 2007, traveled as a couple
