Marvellous value for money, superb restaurant with an excellent daily menu, beautiful gardens with lots of places to relax in, swimming pool with comfortable loungers, easy parking nearby (didn't need to park in hotel garage), pleasant, helpful staff, gateway to some stunning scenery….I'm running out of superlatives.

Just go there and see for yourself!

Loved this hotel! Should be rated higher than three stars. After just having come from staying at a three-star hotel in the city of Granada that was a dump, this one is worlds away! The Alcadima is LOVELY and quite a bargain for such a peaceful setting with beautiful views everywhere (gardens, flowers, hotel pool and terrace, mountains) warm hospitality from the owners (the hotel is family-owned and you're likely to meet two of the three generations) and great food.

Rooms are quite spacious, very clean and very comfortable, with plenty of pillows and pretty quilts, and each have balconies with chairs.

There's so much to do in Lanjaron, and this is the perfect place to stay.

Both hotel and the city was a big and nice surprise for us. Hotel was comfortable and nice. Big beds, good heating, nice mountains view from the room. For someone who likes country stily hotels.Very warm. Really large open swimming pool was a big surprise. There are place to stay outside of the room -nice library. Breakfast was good. Nice picture on the wall made by grandma of the girl on reception.
negative: open only two nights in a week in january, wanted to stay more.

Review of restaurant at Hotel Alcadima,
Lanjaron , Andalucia

We spend several months each year in the Lecrin valley, mid-way between Granada and Salobrena on the Costa Tropica, southern Spain. Two years ago some friends introduced us to the restaurant at Hotel Alcadima in the centre of Lanjaron.
It was such a great experience that we have been going back at least once or twice every visit, and the quality of the meals, the standard of service, and the beautiful setting make it the highlight of every visit to the area.
Imagine sitting in a tree shaded courtyard next to a pool, with views of the Sierra Nevada \all around. The Menu del Dia is always original and provides a high quality three course meal for just 15 euros. As for the wine. my old friend Felix Bieger , former General Manager of the Peninsula in Hong Kong used to say ”if their cellar is any good the house red will be excellent.“ The Alcaadima provides an excellent house red, which at 7 euros a bottle is a real bargain.
The Alcadima has been in the Gonzales family for four generations and the current young owner/manager ,Gonzalo Gonzales is ensuring that its reputation is second to none.
I have worked with National Tourist boards around the world, and across Europe as an advisor for the European Commission, as well as the Economist Intelligence Unit - so this praise doesn’t come lightly. I recommend the Alcadima unreservedly. It provides a five star service at everyday prices. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

We absolutely enjoyed every second of our stay here, be it, that that stay only lasted for 1 night. The hotel has quite a number of rooms with small balcony's but still feels personal, and the personnel on-site was friendly, also as we are Dutch, we were very glad that there was a booklet with all hikes in the area in our own language.

In the evening, we made use of their restaurant, which was for us the absolute best restaurant we have been to in Andalucia so far, and even though it might be a bit more expensive than others in town, the prices are still ridiculously low for the quality of the food and service received, I think we paid around 26 euro p.p. for starters, mains and a bottle of wine (there is a far cheaper daily menu too).

We also made use of the breakfast which was really good.

If we ever return to this area, it is beyond doubt that we will stay here again.

We stayed here in March 2014.
