“Fantastic out of the way spot for a unique stay”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

We were welcomed personally by the owner who was very friendly and hospitable, showing us to our own personal cave with a real sense of pride. Inside, the cave is far from what you might expect with a very large and comfortable bed, fully equipped kitchen, great bathroom and LCD TV. There is also a pool and barbecue outside for when the weather is warm.

Great place to have a good night's sleep: the cave's thick walls and the setting made it very quiet. Also a lovely spot to enjoy an al fresco breakfast the next morning with nothing but birdsong, personally served by the owners. More food than we could eat and a great start to the day. I wouldn't consider staying in Baza - come out here instead.

It's a little hard to find though - don't get concerned if you are on what look like unsealed roads and driving through forested areas; you're on the right track and it is worth the journey. We recommend making a copy of the map off their website and also get Google maps to generate directions for you.

One last word about Theo - the resident dog - he's very friendly but don't throw his stone for him unless you want to play that game all evening :-)

I don't know about you, but i hadn't slept in a cave before visiting Cueva El Guindas! I would describe it as a cave with a difference....beautiful setting, warm when its cold, cool when its hot, everything you'd need to have a comfortable stay too. Living room and kitchen, 2 bedrooms, a unique bathroom with lovely tiles and a small BBQ and plunge pool area too. My only negative would be the slight unease at having all that rock above you while you sleep. No matter how much you know its never going to come down, it still makes you feel a bit weird. Overall, its a great place, definitely one to try!
