I suppose really what one would consider fit for a honeymoon would depend on the honeymooning couple in question. However, how could you argue with a marble clad, Alhambra inspired neo-Moorish palace with views overlooking Granada below?
On arrival, our first impression was not that great. Our room was pleasant enough but two single beds? Not really what we wanted. We spoke to the reception staff who agreed enthusiastically that this would not do. We were asked if we liked the floor we were on (yes, the view was amazing) and given another key to explore. This new room not only had a double bed but was huge, with an enormous bathroom and a private balcony with a table and two chairs overlooking the city, dozing in the sunset. A vast improvement!
The room was comfortable, clean and pleasant. The hotel staff were helpful when we enquired about local restaurants and ticket booking. The Alhambra was very close by so we could go for evening strolls in the woods. A bus goes from outside the hotel into the city although really it isn't that far too walk, just very steep. To take the bus each time though would be to miss out on the woods and various streets of Granada, with occasional wafts of guitar music floating about, escaping from one of the guitar making shops.
We did not take breakfast in the hotel so cannot comment. We had a bar snack one evening which was pleasant and not too expensive.
