We've just spent a week at El Amparo B&B. We were absolutely delighted with our stay. For the first four nights my son and I stayed on the ground floor in a comfortable triple and when my husband arrived we moved upstairs to the "family suite" which had a double room and twin room connected, sharing a bathroom. Both rooms were immaculately clean, comfortable beds, fantastic high-volume showers, warm under-floor heating, and big closets and bureaus to store our clothes. The upstairs suite had a lovely view over the hills covered with olive trees. It was too cool to swim but we did sit in the hot tub one night after a hike. We also ate four out of eight dinners at the B&B, which were absolutely delicious and we enjoyed talking with the other guests who were visiting from all over Europe. Breakfast - served buffet style - was the same every day but offered enough variety that we didn't tire of the fare.
But the real selling point of El Amparo is the host, Jeff. Jeff made our week in Andalusia so much easier because he gave us easy directions on the logistics that can make you crazy - where to park, which bus to take, where to get tickets, driving times and recommendations for restaurants. He was also extremely accommodating in terms of packing us a "breakfast pack" one morning when we had to leave early and offering a dinner alternative for my son. Already an organized traveler, I had the destinations of the week pretty well planned, but Jeff's information made all the last details slip easily in to place. This made a huge difference as it removed any stress and allowed us to really enjoy our vacation and capitalize on our time in Andalusia. We hiked in the Sierra Nevada, went to the caves at Nerja, and spent a day each in Antequerra, Granada and Cordoba. As Jeff likes to point out, El Amparo is "in the middle of nowhere" which meant a little bit of extra driving, but we found it to be centrally located in the midst of the destinations described above and a welcome respite each evening and morning that was well worth the drive. We highly recommend El Amparo - have a great stay!
