Travelling as a large group is always fraught with issues; you end up paying over the odds for extremely average properties. However, Finca Del Alamo is a veritable haven for the price. Lots of living and dining space, gorgeous decor, fresh lemons, olives and almonds within the grounds, shaded table tennis area and the surrounding towns are a ceramicists' heaven. The beaches within a 30 minute drive are stunning and I'd highly recommend a visit to Fort Bravo in Tabernas. BEST DAY EVER if you like an authentic wild west/shoot-em-up experience. Bar el Pipa in Nijar serves the best granizados around.

For any budding footballers, the astroturfed grounds in Nijar (5 minute drive from the house) is the best we've seen anyware and it's free. Beware of kids who want to play in the heat.....heat exhaustion is not a pleasant ailment. Late afternoon is perfect and there is a swimmig pool on site too.

The only slight issue with the Finca in the height of summer can be the heat at night. Only 2 rooms have air conditioning (the others are equiped with fans) and some of the bathrooms need a bit of TLC. The caretaker lives discreetly on-site in separate quarters. The pool is more geared to adults but the beaches more than compensate for water-crazy kinds. All very minor points. If you like affordable, far from the madding crowd, eco-granduer in a remote but beautiful setting, the Finca is the place to be.

“Wow!!! Highly Recommended”

I stayed at the Finca as a part of a group of 12.
Never having been to Spain before, with only tales of lads holiday to use as what to expect, I was blown away. The area of Nijar & nearby Almeria is beautiful, stunning scenery, lovely architecture and wonderful things to see/do. Nijar (5 minute drive) offers all local amenities, however I would recommend for any big food/alcohol shops to venture into Almeria to a supermarket as the prices are much cheaper (especially alcohol).
Further afield, we visited San Jose which has a lovely beach, and a few of us ventured off to Granada to visit Alhambra - I would highly recommend this. It's about a 2 hour drive each way, and you need to book tickets in advance, but it's a full day out.

The Finca itself is immense. The photos on Tripadvisor do not do the place justice, it felt like we were staying in a mansion. The décor of the Finca is top notch, very warm and welcoming, like you are staying at a friends place. All bedrooms are of a generous size, in fact all rooms are substantial.
Having beautiful weather everyday meant most of the time we were outside by the pool. The area around the pool again is beautiful - there are lovely views of Nijar with a mountainous backdrop, and a view of the coast in the distance. There is also a Ping-Pong table near the pool which kept us entertained with many a match being played. There is also a box of inflatables by the ping pong table which was unexpected. I loved the pool, although its not the widest of pools, its sufficient enough to swim in, play in and cool off. Sun loungers are provided, however if you seek shade, there are no parasols, but there are shaded areas around the trees, walls and balcony. My only word of caution is that the internal sides of the pool wall are not smooth - be careful not to graze your limbs/feet against them with too much vigor as you will feel it afterwards!

Isabella showed us round the villa upon arrival, however with no Spanish speakers in our group it was more of a pointing exercise. If you are in a larger group like us, I would recommend maybe just one or two people follow her round rather than everyone following her like a herd of sheep. It's easy enough to figure out what is where.

All in all I would recommend Finca Alamo to everyone, I have no negatives to offer. I can honestly say that all 12 of us left the Finca feeling relaxed. We all had a lovely stay and if the opportunity arose, I would happily revisit.

“What a great villa”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed at Finca del Alamo for 1 week. We were an extended family group of 14 aged from 3 yrs to 67 yrs.
The house was fantastic with lots of space and large bedrooms and good showers.
We spred ourselves out, used the pool, had great communal meals and enjoyed the fabulous weather and surrounding towns.
