    “Perfect place for a romantic hideaway”

    Absolutely awesome experience- everything was perfect down to the very little detail. I am truly amazed how this establishment managed to surprise me with their ability to create "that little extra" - it made the whole difference and I am giving my highest point in every matter. Absolutely amazing - thank you.

    “Relaxing and classy hotel”

    Wonderful stay at La Bobadilla. Perfect getaway for a family - we have a 6,4 and 16 month old and came away relaxed! Staff were so helpful, room clean and well proportioned. The pool has a wow factor and kept the kids amused for hours. Plus the kids club is nearby so they could drop in and out as they wished. It is hidden away, there isn't an enormous amount to do locally but if R&R is what you're after this is perfect. Granada is approx 1hr away and a great day trip.

    “Joyful stay”

    What more can be said! As previous contributors will attest this is a wonderful experience. The room was spacious and comfortable, we had a junior suite as our young daughter shared our room. The bathroom was well equipped and the bathroom floor space alone was the size of a normal double bedded room . The bath was luxurious to say the least. There are a myriad of facilities and things to do onsite, though the main swimming pool takes some beating. The pool staff are very attentive with towels and cold water appearing as you sit down on the sun loungers. We ate in for 3 nights at el cortijo and again the you have stunning views of the surrounding mountains, excellent food and drink and not that different to what you would pay in the UK. A wonderful dining experience. Lunch was also an enjoyable time, with a varied and comprehensive snack (or heavier) options available. Overall though, it's the staff that make the hotel what it is. All staff (front and back room ) we came across were attentive and courteous, with their main aim being to ensure that you had a great holiday. What a marvellous 4 day start to the overall holidays.

    “Excellent points. Mediocre points. ”

    Firstly, after some doubts at the beginning of the week spent there, I must say that I enjoyed a week in this hotel. But there were some elements about staying here that were pretty mediocre too. Detail is the hallmark of genius and there are a few details that could make this place very special indeed. Not sure if Barceló hotels want to achieve this.... The location is very enticing. In the middle of hills and olive trees. The building, beautiful and well kept. The staff are generally very helpful and accommodating. Barceló hotels are fortunate to have the staff they do! We spent a week here and probably should have thought carefully about the 'child friendly' nature of the hotel. There were loads of kids: this turned out to be fine and the kids were all great - mainly due to the fact that by the pool, there is quite a lot of space between your recliners and sun beds so not crowded at all. If you seek to avoid kids, probably best to avoid this hotel. The pools are beautiful and are well kept. Enormous. They close at 8pm however which on a long hot night seems very early when what you may want is a late dip. There may be staffing reasons for this and shifts for guards. One of the main points of choosing this location is to get away from it all. Sitting around the pool is beautiful and stress free. However, the same music is pumped around the pool speaker system all day. All week. Apparently, not changed in years! It is actually quite maddening to hear the same chill out tracks for the 60th time during a week of sunshine! The pool will only serve one glass of free water by the pool. Wonderfully served by very nice staff but you cannot have more than one glass of tap water per day. Leading Small Hotel of the World? The shower in the bedroom was the size of a hand towel. Certainly not the shower of a Leading Hotel of the World. And it overflowed out on to the floor every time. It must have been doing this for months. Beautiful spacious patio however, with no planting to liven up the 5 foot balcony wall. Felt like the exercise ground in an open prison more than a relaxing sunbathing private patio in your luxury hotel suite. Leading Hotel of the World... It doesn't cost much to plant and water a few bougainvilleas and you have an idyllic retreat. The corridors are pumped with an artificial vanilla smell. Gets you at the back of the throat like a Glade air freshener.... really out of keeping with this hotel's possibilities of being a really authentic place. However, some people may like it. Invasions of wasps in early August prevented outdoor breakfasts and interfered with some alfresco dinners (at night they didn't seem so bad). Not sure what the hotel can do about this, but they should do something. Food in the restaurants was ok. However, good staff make up for a lot of the failings of a hotel chain. The staff at this hotel, with very few exceptions were friendly and good. The setting for the Cortejo restaurant is wonderful at sunset. All in all, we had a great time here and did relax. With some more attention to detail it could be so much more. It bills itself as a Leading Hotel of the World - it certainly should be but it isn't. Having filled in the company's feedback form, the response from the hotel is that most things were down to our 'personal taste' and that the food on offer is leading because they have 42 choices on their menu. Well, this isn't necessarily a mark of quality. Maybe they could focus on fewer, better. The spa is good but had weird opening hours 10-2pm / 4-8pm that seemed to cater to the shifts requirements of the staff rather than the convenience of paying customers who may want a treatment in the afternoon or later in the evening. Maybe I have been spoilt by really good Leading Hotels but small details could change this place no end. And remember, this place is not cheap cheap..... Saying all this, I enjoyed the week here for relaxation, space of the location and quietness plus nice staff. #barcelohotels #leadinghotelsoftheworld

    “2 day break”

    Relaxing 2 day break after driving from near Madrid. Upon arrival we both felt so relaxed and knew it was going to be an amazing stay. My only regret is we didn't stay longer. Your staff are fantastic! Did a week all over Spain and your hotel was by far the best.
