“Tranquility & very friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

Stayed in this beatiful and isolated hotel in June with my family of 2 young children. The hotel is 25 min drive from Garanda city and used to be an old Cortijo (Andalusian farm house). We stayed in one of the newer rooms and quality is very good and clean. The small hotel also has a small pool. The staff is very friendly and food is good. For dinner will have to book in advance 1 day as the Kitchen only buys fresh items and does not keep them in the freezer. You only book the dinner without knowing what is the menu, whcih is a surprise the following day. The access might be challenging with a bigger car, as its road is quite steep and narrow up the mountains. Indeed a nice place to recommend and quite an unusual type of accommodation and hotel.

Room Tip: Stay better in the newer rooms, large bathroom

We stayed at La Almunia del Valle three nights on our 10 day road trip trough Spain. I am not exaggerating when I say that this part of our trip was our favorite. If you are in the area visiting the Alhambra perhaps or Granada in general you'd really miss something special if you don't spend a few nights here. From the minute we arrived we felt so welcomed by Patricia and Maria, you can see that it is very important to them that you are happy and enjoying your stay. It's a very relaxing environment, very low key. As others have said, don't expect things like turn down service, wifi in your room or luxurious toiletries in your bathroom, this is not that kind of place but it is beautiful at the same time. Our room was lovely, with a nice terrace to sit out on with a glass of wine to take in the incredible view. The food served here is some of the best we've ever had. Not only is it delicious but it is also styled and presented beautifully for both breakfast and dinner. There are some snacks and wine by the pool area that you can take on the honor system where you just write down what you have had. We were there on a sunday and they don't serve dinner on Sundays so we went down the road less than 5 minutes to La Cantina which was fabulous as well. Really nice people and a wonderful meal. Bottom line is that this place is sweet, simple and special. It's peaceful and quiet and a wonderfully beautiful romantic escape.

A breathtaking view of the Sierra Nevada, delicious dinners with excellent selection of wines, nice and cosy room. And of course very helpful and friendly staff. The time we spent in this hotel was memorable. there's nothing to dislike.

This hotel is absolutely perfect for a quite break for two in the mountains. The previous reviews speak for themselves and we totally endorse the previous reviews. We have never been back twice to any hotel but this will change for La Almunia del valle. The staff, particularly Maria couldn't do enough for you, stunning views, great room (superior double) excellent food. The evening meals are worth staying for.

Lots to do and see and the 10KM valley walk (details from hotel) is a must but note very hilly, lots of steps and crawling.

A perfect break. Thank you so much we will definitely return and highly recommended.

Room Tip: Superior Double well worth the little extra.

Really great stay. Food was fabulous, view excellent, rooms were so nice we took photos to steal some of the ideas! Manuel and Pat were lovely hosts that did everything they could to make you feel welcome and the feel really was like staying in the home of friends. Best part were Bonnie, Clyde and Kris (the resident cats and dog) - gave the place a really homely feeling and so friendly and well behaved :-)

We left La Almunia and went to Barcelo de Bobadilla near Loja for the last few days and regretted it. Not only was it EUR 100 more expensive a night, it was also no where near as welcoming and as special.

We had a stunning room with an incredible view of the hills. It was like staying somewhere out of a magazine. We had the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. Friendly and helpful staff.
We stayed for 4 nights and ate at the hotel for 2. The food was fantastic - very tasty and everything freshly cooked. The drive up to the hotel felt a little bit hairy to start with but we soon got used to it and it was so worth it.
I cannot find words to describe the feeling of stillness and calm. Although we were only a 20 minute drive to Granada, it was so peaceful and relaxing, it was like a bit of heaven on earth.

I can only endorse what has already been said by many other travellers. Genuine hosts in delightful surroundings make your stay memorable - the views, food, rooms are exceptionally good. Yes, not the easiest hotel to find but well worth following the excellent hotel directions. We will return at some time in the future. Exceptional value for money.
