We only stayed 3 nights so did not make use of the kitchen facilities, which looked very good. Our room was large, and the bed comfortable. The shower pressure was low but not really a problem. The grounds were pleasant, with hammocks and chairs to hang out in. Arnold and Donnely were warm and gracious hosts, and we particularly appreciated the airport pick up service, and help organising a taxi on our departure. The location was fairly central - Granada is not big, so it was not a problem walking back and forth. And we always felt very safe. This would be a really good place for a longer stay, but is also very good value for a short visit and we would recommend it.
