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 :-)
