“No room at the inn”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013 via mobile

A special birthday, so we booked directly with the hotel for 3 nights. I had explained that we would like a celebration meal. They confirmed. We arrived today and the hotel was closed! The lady said she couldn't understand how this had happened but accepted we had a direct booking confirmation. She arranged for us to be accommodated at another hotel, which seems OK so far.
However, one does not expect this sort of mess from a highly rated hotel.

We cannot express how sorry we feel for what happend to you on your special day!

Allthough it might not change the inconvenience we put you in, we hope it might help you to understand that this situation was not intended and again that we feel very very sorry.

Gladly we could find you a nice hotel close by where we made sure you had everything you needed and more. I hope you accept our email to you, our call and this note to express again that it was a faultive booking engine and not our will to have you celebrate your birthday in a different place as you had intended.

We can only say how happy we would be to be able to welcome you here with us another time.

This is really a wonderful place to stay and we wish we would have spent more time there! The entire experience there was really spectacular. The staff is so friendly and accommodating! The food was fantastic. The fresh baked croissants were AMAZING, as was the entire breakfast spread. We would highly recommend this place and would encourage at least 2 nights, but more if you can!

We picked this place for a honeymoon as it was far from the city but with decent connection. From the moment we arrived till we left we were amazed by their service. The hotel owner is a wonderful guy and went out of his way to ensure we were comfortable.

Perfect Spanish hotel, with the Spanish touch and great views. The view from the hotel was amazing and the room was just perfect for honeymoon. It was huge with all amenities and had the countryside feel too, perfect blend. Balcony overlooking hills and swimming pool, a big study table and a small dining table in the room, with huge bed.


We are strict vegetarians and dont eat where non veg food is cooked, since the hotel had only one restaurant that served meat, we asked them to give us a few veggies so we cud fix our meal (sandwich, et al) and they ensured we got everything we needed. Fresh zucchinis (i still miss them), tomatoes, bread. Great breakfast.

We needed cash at the hotel checkout, and the hotel owner was kind enough to come early in the morning and took us to an ATM far frm the hotel and arranged that for us (debited our card and gave cash from his own pocket). This was really appreciating. WHo does that at a hotel? Kudos to such a great service.

Totally recommend this place.

Hotel La Fueta de l Higuera sits in beautiful grounds in a picturesque part of Spain. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. We loved our first floor room with view, copper bathtub and a terrace with sun loungers. The honesty bar was well equipped and tells you everything about the philosophy of the hoteliers.
Each day we 'pre-ordered' dinner from a choice of two starters, mains and desserts. Food was good, but not amazing. The restaurant terrace was a pleasant place to eat.
A day trip to Granada included a grueling early morning drive, which made us even happier to come back 'home' to the hotel.

Room Tip: We loved our no. 2 Suite Deluxe first floor room with view, copper bathtub and a terrace with sun lo...

This hotel is stunning - both the building and the setting. Beautiful views in gorgeous and peaceful countryside. The beds were huge and without at a doubt the most comfortable that we have slept on in Spain. The hotel staff accommodated all of our needs (including arranging a massage) and there was excellent attention to detail. Everything we ate was delicious and the wines were great too. We loved the idea of the honesty bar which made it very relaxing and easy to help ourselves to drinks as and when we wanted them. We also liked the décor, especially the wood-burning stove which smelt incredible! Our terrace (in room 6) caught the afternoon sunshine and was a great place to sit and relax (after a morning relaxing by the pool of course!)

Room Tip: Room 6 was where we stayed and it was very pretty. Not the biggest in the hotel and didn't have...

The hotel is exquisite with beautiful view, everything here is immaculate. They make you feel at home and go beyond what you expect to accommodate your needs. The staffs are very friendly and attentive. There is no TV in the room however they have a cd player and iPhone dock, if you'd prefer, you can choose CDs from the dining room where the owner has quite a collection of good music there. I hated to leave this place, I wish I had spent more days here. Loved every single minutes there. I can't say enough.
