Fabulous hotel. Beautiful room, spacious, immaculately clean, great decor amazing staff but the food is very average and expensive for what it is. Such a shame as its one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed at, super relaxing but food is not great

The property is located up, up, up and away from the Costa del Sol. A long drive wends its way by stable and hunting grounds to reach a fabulous Moorish inspired building that houses the main parts of the hotel resort. The rooms are fabulous. Our junior suite was enormous and luxurious in every way: bath, bedding, furnishings, finishes. The views over the Andalusian countryside is alluring, and the generous terrace invited relaxation. The food is great. Breakfast in a modern pavilion is generous, varied and delicious. Dinner on the terrace of the old stable area is fantastic- and the wine list lives up to the menu. Pool is refreshing and pleasant. Not far from Granada or Malaga. We are planning our return visit.

Fourth visit!
Food amazing, service impeccable . Silence and views to die for.
Junior suite one we stayed in last time, nice touch.
True it's not cheap but what expect to pay for 5 star hotel.
Only negative is have stopped poolside bar service. Quick walk to bar and it's sorted but bit annoying.
All in all another lovely relaxing 3 night stay. Be back nxt year!

When you first see your room you will be blown away. It's lovely there.The service is impeccable. I literally saw someone who works there swoop in to light someone's cigarette.

It sounds like they pipe in bird chirping, but it's real. It just sounds really peaceful. I'm told there are a lot of rabbits on the grounds, too, but I didn't see them.

The views are sweet. Not elaborate, but very pleasant.

We had dinner in the chapel one night. That was different. It was pretty.

I'm American and the food was a little too exotic for me. Watermelon with teriyaki sauce as part of a main course, and spaghetti with soy sauce and veggies, stuff like that. Maybe that's fancy Spanish fusion, but it wasn't my bag.

This is the kind of place that's just going to have to be geographically convenient for you, because it's not very near to anything. It's about 45 minutes to the Malaga airport, so that's cool, but I didn't see anyone from another building during the three days I was there.

I thought they were super classy down to every detail and would highly recommend the place.

Hotel is in an excellent location as it's in the mountains and about an hour or so from Granada, Malaga and an hour and a half from Cordoba so a good base for exploring -recommend Cordoba Cathedral/Mosque especially, Alhambra always worth a visit of course (but be prepared for crowds, even in April!). Hotel is well run and staff v friendly and helpful, they were landscaping the outdoor pool area (they were making loads of sand into a beach!) so not available but we were warned and received a bottle of local sherry so fair do's. V nice gardens with turtle pond, bike trails etc. and also views across the maontains and plains. Room v spacious and also breakfast extensive -all you could want really, we didn't have an evening meal as we were out at other places.

La Bobadilla is a very pretty hotel, built as a pastiche "White Village", surround by a huge estate. It is owned by Barcelo, and feels a little corporate, considering its style and location. The emphasis seems to be on weddings,(there is a chapel at the centre), and beyond the immediate photo opportunity areas, the garden and estate looked a little uncared for. Our room was large and comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent. But dinner is expensive and extremely average. But never mind….there is a place less than a mile away, La Paloma, on the road to Villanueva de Tapia, where you can have a delicious dinner, on a flowery terrace, for less than half the price.

Dear Guest,

I´m very sorry to hear that your impression about our hotel is not 100% positive. We will work hard to improve it. Concerning dinner as you know there are always two restaurants providing meals service at night, Gourmet and Andalusian cuisine... of course there are several choices driving a mile away, the guarantee in our restaurants is the healthy and quality control that Barceló Hotels offer to its guests.

We all wish to welcome you to La Bobadilla again.

Yours sincerely,

GM
