Lanjaron - Hotel Alcadima 1/6/2009
HOTEL- Fantastic oldy worldy comfy gem overlooking the Sierra Nevada Mountains, incredible views, beautiful flowery courtyards surrounding great outdoor pool [has indoor pool but did not use ] bring own towels for sunbeds or buy one at reception for 5 Eu.
Library, reading room, internet, tennis court, childrens pool & play area slide etc, soft sunbeds/deckchairs/umbrellas.
ROOM - Cupboards & drawer space plentiful, hairdryer safe,, tea/coffee facilities, TV - BBC fuzzy picture but great for getting news from home. Comfy bed, sofa, balcony with table/chairs overlooking pool. Shower over hip bath, clean towels daily.
FOOD - Wonderful, we were half board, breakfast - cereals, fresh melon/pineapple/kiwifruit, tinned peaches,fruit cocktail. Fruit juices, lovely coffee,fresh bread rolls,pates, jams,honey, cakes etc. Scrambled egg,chipolata sausage, beans,tomatoes, mushrooms,bacon. Cheeses & ham. - Dinner - Great choices & delicious. Restaurant available for lunches & snacks.
WATER - Can boil Hotel tap water for drinks but not advisable to drink, this is a Spa town and there are many drinkable tap areas to top up water bottles around town, POTABLE sign means OK.
STAFF - Very freindly & helpful, mainly Spanish speaking but with enough English to get us by.
LOCAL AMENITIES - A main street with usual shops selling pottery, shoes, clothes etc. Check out the SPAR shop which sells everything we had forgotten to bring plus great wines etc.
Wander through the backstreets partic near the church square & view the cannon gun, take the walk through the forest to the old castle and experience the waterfalls & views, Info in folder in room or at reception. This felt like a very safe enclosed family freindly environment with cafes & restaurants aplenty for its size.
I would def rcommend it for Families, Honeymooners and all who love walking & scenery. For further info contact me, Holl.

We have recently returned from a walking holiday with Page & Moy based in the Alcadima hotel. The holiday was wonderful, the hotel was perfectly situated and the staff friendly, efficient and helpful. However the hotel is let down by the standard of the rooms which if they are all like ours need urgent refurbishment.

There are many things I like about the hotel and I'd stayed several times in the past. The views are fantastic, nice clean pool and food is good. Some rooms - the more expensive doubles - are fine, but the economic doubles are very dark and dingy. However, my main problem with the hotel is that staff are cordial and stiffly polite but quite obviously don't really want guests! There is one exception, a young woman on reception called Cathy, is very welcoming, helpful and friendly. So I wouldn't want her classified with the rest.

I had booked this holiday without seeing the reviews on your website. When I did I became quite concerned that the Hotel would not be up to our expectations. I had booked through Thomsons and it had rated 100% in all of their three categories. When we arrived we had a welcome tray of a small bottle of wine and nibbles. I understand that guests who arrived in the early hours of the morning had also received welcome platters. When we looked around the hotel prior to going down to dinner we were extremely pleased. The Hotel is clean, well maintained and the setting at the rear where the pool and bar area is is attractive with small courtyards going off that you could wander around in. The hotel staff were very, very helpful bearing in mind we spoke no Spanish except for Ola and buenos dios! The Hotel and its staff certainly made our holiday and we would not hesitate to recommend it to our friends.

I think the website gives a very fair portrayal of the place. I get the impression that many rooms have been refurbished and that, possibly, earlier reviewers did not have this advantage.
I travelled with a nine-year-old and we had a delightful, relaxing time. Our large double room comprised twin beds, new and very comfortable, a pristine new bathroom, with bath, shower over, hairdryer, etc., armchairs, fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, TV with digital channels (including BBC1 & 2) and a large balcony with stupendous views of the Sierra Nevada. Some rooms are a little smaller, overlooking just the pool. There are stairs, but there is also a lift and ramps to facilitate access to most areas. There seemed to be endless outdoor and indoor spaces, including a gym, paddle-ball court (like mini-tennis) and various entertaining areas, with free use of the Internet. The pools were clean, if a little strong on chemicals, when we were there.
The restaurant is of a good standard, one of the best places to eat in the town, if not the area, and the set dinners included three choices of starters and four of main course (two fish, two meat, usually two grilled, two with a sauce) and extensive desserts. The first two courses varied each evening. It is also possible to eat a la carte. The waitresses did, occasionally, get a little flustered or muddled, but were always happy to rectify any problems. Only one of the management team spoke much English and this is truly a regional hotel with an authentic Spanish flavour.
It is slightly set back from the main thoroughfare through the town and this gives a feeling of seclusion. The 'main road' that runs behind the hotel is neither noisy nor particularly busy.
All in all, we had a really good holiday.

We booked this through a travel company again, having been there several years earlier. This time we went with our 20 month daughter. For us, this was our perfect holiday, having been to a gite in France the year before. If you want real Spain, and a quiet place then go to the Alcadima. We spent our time in the children's and main pool, speaking to the Spanish in our very poor Spanish. The staff could not have been any more friendly and helpful. We were half-board and loved the food, but could see that if you were the English type of person looking for English food, you probably wouldn't go for it. A relaxing holiday with a small child. How many people get that?!!
