We visited the Alhambra in late February and even though it was quite cold, the sunny weather made all the difference in visiting this place. The view over the city is amazing, of course. We spent close to 5 hours up there on a Wednesday during off-season and still there were quite a lot of people, although it did not feel overcrowded. I'm sure the usual ticket reservation wouldn't have been necessary, but since we reserved online beforehand, we didn't have any trouble at all getting in.
I recommend spending a minimum of 3 hours to wander around and enjoy the beauty. We also rented the audio tour guide, which was an okay investment, but it didn't strike me as a definite must-do. Food and drinks were quite affordable on the premises to my great surprise.
