We recently stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. We had a wunderfull room (nr 12) which was very modern on the top of the grounds with a wide view. The bed was very soft, but it slept good. I couldn't feel my partner when she was getting out of bed or was moving. The surroundings are nice, but you have to like to drive over a very narrow road towards the hotel. Most of the things are well arranged at the hotel. The wifi is however only accessable in the main sitting area and on the main terrace. We were however lucky to have it once in a while on the terrace right in front of our room. During our stay the room was kept clean, the last day the nice smell we had the first days after the cleaning was not there. We had to leave early on the last day (07.30) and requested an early breakfast. This was not possible as they were still sleeping at 0700 and the breakfast normally started at 09.00, but we could get a tray with breakfast items the night before we left. We arranged this at our arrival, but asked the last day again as it seemed that they had forgotten. The last night we got a breakfast on a tray and were a bit dissappointed. We got all the items that were not eaten the last three days or were not nice to eat (we got for example the glutenfree bread lying on the table for the last three days with no taste at all). It seemd that the tray was not prepared on forehand and was collected using a sweep of the breakfast area of itmes still there from the morning. As nobody was there when we had to leave, we could not complain to the hotel. It was not nice to leave with a hungry feeling, while paying a considerable amount of money for the room and breakfast. The regular breakfast was however well done. a tip is however not to come late as the buffet is not replanisched and could be plundered as we had on a morning after sleeping in.

This hotel is incredible. Maria, is wonderfully hospital and greeted us warmly on arrival. She was always on hand to give helpful advice and information.
We stayed in the fantastic room 7 for our honeymoon - a superior room and well worth the upgrade if you can stretch to it. We had a large and private terrace that caught the morning sun and gorgeous views across the valley. The bathroom was also great with a powerful shower and very large, deep bath.
One of the best aspects of the hotel was the food at dinner - a 4 course set menu for 35Euro. The food is excellently prepared and tasty and there was a great variety over the 3 meals we ate at the hotel.

Room Tip: Room 7 has incredible views and a private terrace

This hotel is a paradise tucked away in the hills of Granada. It's a short four-hour drive from Madrid, a 50 minute drive from the ocean, and a quick drive (15 minutes) to downtown Granada. The location is incredible; the hotel is even more remarkable. The building is a renovated cortijo - that is beautifully designed, maintained, and decorated. We stayed in one of the rooms that had a terrace directly off of it. The room was spacious, with lots of light, beautiful views of the sunset, and an exceptionally tasteful design. The area is rural and the entire property has beautiful views overlooking the neighboring villages and at points with the city of Granada in the distance. It is a bucolic, pastoral, and exceptionally peaceful setting with the utmost of luxury and comfort in the hotel.

However, this is just cosmetic, what really makes the place a 'must-visit' are the owners. We arrived after they had just reopened for the season. They provided a wonderful tour of the property when we arrived and at all points were available and interested in talking and sharing information about the area, dog areas in Madrid, etc. Furthermore, they were super-accommodating of our dog (even though it was a puppy that we had just adopted) and suggested a variety of walks in the area that would be appropriate for him/us. Lastly, the icing on the cake was that our food was essentially made-to-order. They asked us in advance whether we had any food restrictions and prepared an entire veggie-friendly, delicious 3-course meal for us. In sum, they were available, welcoming, and forgiving (e.g., our puppy knocked over and broke a glass bowl in the room and they were quite understanding and did not charge us for a replacement) and we wouldn’t change a thing about the entire experience (except our dog breaking the bowl). We would have liked to stay there longer and will definitely return.

We spent a week at the Al Almunia and found it a great place to be from the moment we arrived. Our planned flight was cancelled and we arrived at 10.30 at night. The hair-raising road up to the hotel was soon forgotten. Maria was there to greet us and help us unload. The kitchen had remained open and served us a delicious dinner. The room was large and very comfortable with a great view across the valley. Our subsequent stay was very relaxing and we decided to eat at the hotel each evening. This proved a great move. Not only did we not have to take the narrow track up the hill in the dark but the food was outstanding. The chef, Carmen, is gifted and served us a variety of great food over the week. It's good value too.

Room Tip: The superior rooms overlook the valley and have a great terrace to themselves.

We had 2 nights in this hotel and as everybody else has already said it is a wonderful experience. The tranquility on our balcony first thing in the morning was an excellent start to the day.

We had the evening meal on one occasion and thoroughly enjoyed it. As is often the case in Spanish "Casa Rurales" the menu is whatever they happen to be cooking that evening but they did check with us beforehand that we would like what they had planned to cook and would offer an alternative if not.

The owners and staff make you feel especially welcome and nothing is too much trouble for them. We will be staying here again next time we visit the region.
