“Clean & quiet stay on the outskirts of Granada”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

This hotel is definitely a very good option if you travel by car and want to have free parking, a pool to cool you down during the warn summer months, a quiet night of sleep and yet stay close to the city.

This is a perfect spot to visit the area : in 15 min your are parked in downtown Granada (or you can take the bus), a few km away you reach Monachil where you can walk Los Cahorros, a short drive and you are deep inside the Sierra Nevada, and also you are not too far from the Alpujarras.

Our room was pretty large, with a view on the pool (room number 6 if I remember properly), breakfast was good with different options. The pool has a decent size, with nice sunloungers (see pics).

The only thing is that it did not feel very Spanish as all the guests were Flemish or Dutch speaking, so it rather felt like being back home, which I personnaly don't like when I am on holiday ;-) But this is minor of course!

Lovely small hotel in very quiet area. I stayed here in June and have to disagree with the previous reviewer about the food in the restaurant. We ate there 3 nights and the food was exceptional as too was the service from two very efficient and friendly young waitresses. I could find nothing wrong with this hotel except that the ladies on reception were not very friendly. We had a very nice, exceptionally clean and large room with a view over the swimming pool. Very well placed for visiting Granada.

The room was a pleasant surprise: spacious with tasteful interior, a large bathroom and even a private, little terras for the ground floor rooms. The pool is OK qua size, but lacks shade. The breakfast is complete, but the restaurant must be avoided for dinner! The fish soup and the macarel for starters were at take-away level, the Bacalao as main was undercooked and oversalted and came with tasteless tomatosauce and greasy potatoes from the frying pan. The wine was equally uninspired. All by all an experience far below average at average prices. I do not understand how previous reviewers could have been so laudable about the chef, but I am sure he must have left by July 2013.

Travelling with my cousin we had 3 lovely nights at this small hotel. The rooms were spacious, very clean and typically Spanish. Easy access into Granada either by public bus or taxis only took about 20 minutes. Delicious breakfasts and we had two evening meals which were well cooked and very nicely presented. We were too early to use the pool but that would have been a great way to end a busy day in Granada. Very pleasant and helpful staff and would certainly recommend it.

We stayed 3 nights at La Garapa in May with my cousin from England. Breakfast was included in the price and it was a very good. It was close to to public transportation, very quiet and Maria was most helpful. I would return to this hotel again

Room Tip: Rooms with a balcony provide a wonderful view of Granada

We stayed at Le Garapa on a motorcycling holiday in September and absolutely loved the place. Really convenient for an easy bus ride into Granada and within reach of La Alpujarras mountains and the Sierra Nevada. Lovely to cool off in the swimming pool and relax after a hot day.
The food was excellent and meals on the shady terrace most enjoyable.
Hasta la vista!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms with a patio are lovely.
