“Perfect”
Reviewed 16 September 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We stayed for 2 days and had a wonderful time. Shirley and Mark are lovely people who have created a stunning place to stay. The cave house is amazing with everything you could possibly need. The honesty bar was a great idea. Our family loved everything about Cuevas Helena, the swimming pool, the tranquility, the luxury interiors, the friendliness of Shirley and Mark and their 3 gorgeous little doggies.

“Great experience, relax, relax, relax”
Reviewed 13 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

As we approached the caves, the landscape is literally like being on the moon, it is incredible, caves everywhere built into the lunar landscape, amazing. Mark and Shirley are the perfect hosts, super friendly, there whenever you need them, but not in your face at all. The cave is fantastic, really well equipped, they really have thought of everything, it is spacious, cool and relaxed, total serenity, totally different from anything you will have stayed in before.

Very comfy bed, crisp white bedding, great kitchen, barbeque, plenty of outdoor spaces, all round excellent.

We went for dinner one night to the local bar, you must try the chicken wings and beef in sauce, absolutely delicious and excellent value.

Give it a try, we will definitely be back.

“Just perfect from start to finish.”
Reviewed 11 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Had four fantastic days & nights here in the most idyllic surroundings along with three friends and was lucky enough to make two more. Shirley & Mark are an amazing couple who looked after our every need... Nothing was too much trouble. The Cave is nestled into the beautiful countryside and is second to none when it comes to luxury, 5 Star all the way. The pool is wonderful, so relaxing and has amazing views. Would definitely recommend without hesitation. We were all sad to leave and can't wait to go back.

“Fantastic Break”
Reviewed 7 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

A Wonderful place... the most luxurious "Cave" ever. We had a fab time here celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary. Grace was totally mesmerised by the cave. Mark and Shirley Graham really have gone beyond with this beauty making our stay relaxing, fun and memorable in so many ways. Would definitely recommend if you are wanting to explore the likes of Granada or simply relax by the pool admiring the stunning mountainous views.

“Amazing stay and experience.”

We stayed at Cuevas Helena in June 2017 and the whole stay was amazing. CH is a wonderful retreat which offered a tranquil getaway one day and then another an exciting day quad biking up in hills. Shirley and Mark were the perfect hosts and their knowledge of restaurants and places to visit is incredible. The breakfast which they serve is absolutely out of this world. The night time pool experience is the perfect way to finish off the day at Cuevas Helena. We can't wait for our next visit.

“What a Place”
Reviewed 6 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Everything about the cave was great. Every small detail has been thought about down to where to wall has been dug in to show sea shells showing that this land was once underwater. Such a cool touch. Upon arrival we were shown a tour of the cave and was amazed......The pictures of the cave don't do it justice, you need to see it in real life to appreciate how great it is. The cave is very comfortable. It has wifi, a couch if you want I watch tv, 2 dining tables and a little barrel with bar stools if you want to have a few drinks along with all the usual household things like gas cooker, dishwasher, washing machine etc. The fridge was full of refreshments and the wine rack was also full.....all of which were to be paid in the 'honesty jar' which I found a much more fun way to provide things for the guests and it also made it more relaxed. The beds are ridiculously comfortable with fresh white linen and the wet rooms are modern yet still cave like. The town a few kilometers away has a gym which I used on a few occasions and plenty of places to go running around the cave which is important to me when I'm on holiday as I like to keep fit. The local town also has fresh fruit and veg markets aswell as supermarkets, restaurants and cafes which made it great to buy food for cooking and head into town for a coffee. This was a chill out holiday so we loved sitting by the pool throughout the day to soak up the sun and having a BBQ on the wonderful stone BBQ just outside the cave whilst having drinks and listening to music . We also took a trip to Granada which is a lovely city and plenty of sites to see and bars and restaurants to have a drink in the sun. Mark and Shirley were great as were they're lovely dogs and always willing to help the experience be better for us. Lovely people who we enjoyed having in our company for a BBQ and some drinks. Overall tremendous trip and will definitely be back.

Wow, thank you very much for taking the time to give us your review. We both enjoyed your company too and we are glad you were able to keep up with your fitness and used the local gym which is now something we can recommend to our other guests as we have yet to visit ourselves. It is nice to hear that younger people appreciate quieter locations and appreciated this part of Andalucia we would love to have you both back and thank you for your education on your music and BBQ tips,

Thank you once again,
