“Nice, spanish hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2012

Hotel El Almendral is a very nice and typical Spanish hotel in the middle of Andalusia. All the staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast wasn't best ever but were nicely prepared and well presented. There is nice swimming pool and village where hotel is located is quite lovely. maybe if the hotel is a little bit closer to the center village would be better. In Setenil de las Bodegas, just under the rock you can it cheap and perfect tapas.

Room Tip: There was not to many people staying at the hotel, so you can take what you like.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2012

Our first impression was not good due to the surly man on the desk, I think all guests should be met with a smile and this was distinctly lacking. (However the person who took over later was very pleasant)
The room is very basic and a little bit dated but comfortable, the view from the window however was very pleasant the lawns leading to the pool looked very inviting so we went down had drink and a swim then relaxed on a sunbed for an hour or so.
Later we strolled down to the the village of Setinel de las Bodegas which took ten minutes, the village is very quaint and very Spanish. There are a few bars there which seemed to be mostly for locals although we did get there around dusk when most of the locals would be out strolling etc.
We ate on the terrace of the hotel which i have to say was delicious, we opted for tapas and the waiters were extremely helpful and very friendly. We also had breakfast on the terrace which was nice.
I really thought i was going to hate it here but i have to say i would return again if in the area.
The main downside was the shower which was a basic mixer with a fierce spray and difficult to adjust which tended to flood the bathroom, fortunately we were only there one night so only had to mop the water up once.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2011

The staff were very friendly and helpful which did a lot to make up for the shortcomings. The pool is good, big and inviting but there was a definite shortage of sun beds which was exacerbated by the practice of guests reserving and then disappearing for long periods.
The rooms were basic but adequate but such simple items as clothes hooks were not available in the bathroom and the bedside light had a faulty switch. The restaurant menu promised a lot but the end result was most disappointing.

Room Tip: if not satisfied ask for another
