This little hotel has à wonderful setting in the hills. The room had all the necessities you need. Our room had a pink setting and à small balcony with a great view. The dinner, that has to be pre-booked, is a must. If the weather allows it. is served on the terrace, nice as the sun sets behind the hills. There is a small pool.on site that we did not try. The hosts are doing a great job with tthis place.

Just two nights and wish it had been longer.

Hosts Manuel and Patricia are very welcoming. The views are stunning, the rooms lovely and evening meals cooked by Patricia and co. are splendid and very fair value. The breakfast too is worth lingering over. All in all a very fine, grown-up hotel for grown-ups. And other than that the other reviews pretty much sum it up.

We recently spent two nights in this beautiful and peaceful retreat - it wasn't enough! It is hard to believe that the bustling city of Granada is only a 20 minute drive away. The views are breath taking, the air is clear and the night sky is magical. We had one meal cooked by Patricia which was exquisite. As a non red meat eater she more than accommodated my dietary needs. The five course menu was delicious and the wines were equally enjoyable. The bedrooms are tasteful and comfortable. We were also struck by the attention to detail in both the bedroom and the bathroom, down to the pretty and artistic plugs for the sink and bath! The swimming pool and garden area offered a cool respite during the hottest part of the day and lunch can be taken by the pool. We will return!

Stayed for three nights in room seven, with balcony and just wonderful views. As many have already said this hotel is about 1200m up a small and steep single track road. It's no issue and allows the property to benefit from some of the best views of any hotel I have ever stayed.
The hotel itself is small but the service is so attentive and friendly without ever being overbearing.
The hotel is a real mountain retreat, very calming and relaxing and it's hard not to be taken with both the owners, staff and overall ambience.
We ate two nights and there is no reason to go anywhere else although we did have a nice meal in the village. The food is wonderful home cooked, varied and off the highest quality. My partner is vegetarian and had no issues.
Overall one of the most special places we have stayed, go relax and enjoy!

La Almunia Del Valle is a place that I will remember forever. I spent 2 days there in September and had a wonderful experience. The owners are very kind and are happy to help make your stay even better by providing information for shops and interesting places to see in Granada. The 35 Euro (per person) dinner is absolutely worth it. The owner, Patricia, truly has a passion for cooking. You will be served a delicious 5 course meal (different every night). I was dreaming about those dinners long after we left! The room we had was on the second level and over looked the gorgeous valley. The view was truly breathtaking. The room was spacious and new with a very nice shower/deep tub enclosed in glass that looked out to the room, and if you left the curtains open, the valley. Breakfast was included and was very extensive. There were different breads, pastries, cakes, cereals, cookies, meats, cheeses, fruits, yogurts, and fresh jams (ie. homemade fig jam, made from the figs that grow on the property). There is a pool that overlooks the valley and many spots to lay down, relax and enjoy the outdoors. This place is truly magical and I will definitely go back one day.

Room Tip: Our room was on the upper level and had a private terrace with a beautiful view of the valley. Well...

We recently spent 4 nights here and were so pleased that we did. Ten minutes drive from Granada, it was the perfect base for us to enjoy the local area. Peaceful and relaxing, with stunning views of the Sierra Nevada this small hotel offered everything we needed. Delightful staff, lovely food (we had the set menu on 2 nights and couldn't fault it) and stylish accommodation. We tried a few of the local bars in Monachil and founds the locals to be just as welcoming. Thank you to all at La Almunia for a lovely few days.........

I went on trip advisors reviews and stayed at this hotel. It was a little difficult to find, a sat nav is a must. The road up to the hotel is a little difficult to navigate but don't leave that put you off. On arrival we were warmly greeted by our wonderful host Maria who immediately made us feel at home. Our room was at the end of the building and had a terrace. It was very comfortable and had great mountain views as all the rooms do. It is about a 20min drive to granada and a very nice place to return to after the end of the day and the hustle of the city. We also dined at the hotel which I can highly recommend. I would gladly return there for another trip and probably will
