Luxurious and Relaxing Hotel

Posted Nov 6, 2016 on Hotels
La Bobadilla, is easily accessible from Malaga and Granada airports and is situated in beautifully tranquil grounds surrounded by olive groves. When we arrived, we were greeted at the gates and had our luggage taken straight to our room, where we had welcome drinks and chocolates waiting. A great way to start our stay. The room was spacious with a large lounge, bathroom and king size bed. Considering the price, this was easily one of the nicest rooms I have stayed in. The site has four restaurants catering for different tastes, however, due to our stay being in late October some of these facilities had been shut down for the winter. Still we opted for the mid priced restaurant and had a lovely Paella. If the restaurants aren't to your taste, we found a hotel called Paloma, which is 4k away, which served equally good food. The only downside to the hotel is that it is a little remote, so you will need a hire car, however, the hotel has many things to offer such as horse riding and mountain biking. So you may not need to move far. We had a great stay and would definitely go again.

Dear guest, Firstly, we would like to thank you for the lovely review you shared following your recent visit to our Barceló hotel and are delighted to read that we were able to match your holiday expectations. As you mentioned we are in a privileged location, surrounded by olives trees but less than one hour by car from Málaga or Granada. We are the perfect place just to relax or for doing day trips to near villages. Please let me inform you that at the end of October all our facilities were open, except our restaurant El Mirador next to the pool, which we open only during the summer months. We are happy to know that you liked your room, as well as our restoration. Again we thank you for this wonderful review, it has been a pleasure for us to read and we look forward to serving you again soon. Best regards, Manuel Quintana General Manager Hotel Barceló La Bobadilla

Great hotel for a relaxing break

Posted Mar 5, 2016 on Hotels
Great service, good food, nice room and lovely atmosphere. Massages were excellent and would have been a 5 star review if it wasn't for the fact the steam room wasn't working and the indoor pool was pretty chilli so the spa was a little disappointing.

Great Alhambra Alternative to Staying in Granada

Posted Aug 6, 2015 on Hotels
Among the wonderful features of this hotel is how it seems to rise up as an oasis in the middle of an olive tree grove. Wonderful destination property for families with great food and a huge pool in a park-like setting. Suite decor is a bit dated, but it was very roomy, with a private patio. Bed was very comfortable and bathroom was clean. This hotel is the perfect alternative to staying in Granada itself, as it is only an easy 45 minute drive from the Alhambra.

Out of the way tranquility

Posted Jul 30, 2014
Pros: See above
Cons: Food extremely expensive for the quality. Charging Michelin prices for Harvester quality food. Tennis court and Padel court could be kept cleaner.
Location: Middle of nowhere - suits us. Visited Grenada and Cordoba - well worth it. Some nice rural resturants near by - same quality food, half the price
Very nice hotel. Lovely room (junior suite), good service, quiet, large pool, tennis and padel. Extensive grounds with bike track and walking routes. Breakfast - outstanding

Outstanding Hotel

Posted Apr 18, 2014 on Hotels
Fantastic relaxing 2 night stay in a beautiful, secluded, peaceful 5 star hotel. Junior suite (room52) with large terrace overlooking the gardens was luxurious and calming. 5 course set dinner in La Finca restaurant while expensive was first class and great value with the wine option. All staff very friendly and welcoming. Large swimming pool with great sun beds to relax on. Gardens and vast surrounding countryside lovely to walk around or you can hop on one of the hotel bicycles for a ride around the tracks. l I could not fault this hotel in anyway for a romantic getaway and would rush back in a minute.
