    “Away from it all”

    Stayed for 5 nights. In the middle of the Andalucian country side. The drive from the hotel gate to the hotel is 3,5 km. You will need your own wheels to get to Malaga, Cordoba, Granada, Sevilla and tour around to traditional villages. In return you find a quiet retreat with classic luxury service. The hotel itself is in fact a strange kind of building. It looks like an old building and the lay out of the resort and the rooms is not very logical. Bathrooms are like grottos. But it felt pleasant. The two pools are huge and there are over 75 beds for no more than 75 rooms. That is a very good ratio. Pool service is nice. Where to find 3 staff members at your service for not more than 25 people at the pool. The best of all is the pillow you get. A pity about the many wasps. No food is being served at the pool, you will have to go to the restaurant terrace. It is old fashioned. Most of the time for the better, sometimes just a relic from the past. The food is great, but very rural Spanish. Adding some a bit more accessible items to the menu would be nice. Prices at the restaurant are steep, but quality will be delivered. It is a shame there is no non-smoking zone on the outdoor terrace. Eating here everyday did not fit our budget. The extremely friendly restaurant La Paloma is nearby. They serve local products and have a Spanish menu ‘with an Italian twist’. Using the wellness / indoor pool will set you back Euro 22,00 a person. We got free entry due to our LHW membership. It would have been nicer when entrance would be a part of the (already payed) total experience. To swim in the pool, the use of a cap is compulsory. It must be about 20 years ago we last encountered this. Also due to the membership we were upgraded to a junior suite. We were not very fond of this room: dark, very large living space and small bedroom, not so much privacy in comparison with some terrace rooms. Staff did its best to find us a room we would like from the second night onwards. Beds comfortable. Missed an ironing board. Breakfast room recently renovated. Pleasantly light. Good food and service. Guest mostly Spanish and from other European countries. The new tourist crowd did not yet reach the place. The breakfast menu is therefore Spanish/European. Two bottles of water at check-out. A note under our car windscreen telling us they cleaned it in order to assure us a safe trip. Love these kind of details. Best of all: Elise. A day can’t start bad when she is in charge of breakfast reception. Friendly, making people happy, still strict and very efficient.

    “Beautiful Setting and a wonderful stay”

    This hotel is off the beaten track but well worth a visit. Deluxe rooms are excellent and the pool area is incredible. Restaurants are first class and overall this was an excellent stay. We were there on a cycling trip and the routes around the property were fantastic.

    “A real hideaway”

    A Great hotel with lots of space and the opportunity to go off the beaten track. Will go back to this hotel again if in the region. Indoor and spa was very clean and warm ..outdoor pool was very cold though!

    “Lived up to our high expectations ”

    We searched for a quite hotel with a countryside setting rather than the usual visits to the coast whilst hoping to experience the real Andalucia and La Bobadilla exceeded our expectations on every level right from the start. Our Junior Suite was of a good size with lovely views over the countryside, very peaceful and just what we had hoped for. The pool areas are beautifully maintained and a wonderful place to relax by the large pools. Food in La Bobadilla is of a very high standard and the menus well thought out and rotated. Views from from the terraces are special. Last comment goes to the staff, all of whom were attentive, helpful and friendly. However we give a special mention to the waiting staff who were exceptional at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Highly recommended and we will be going back for sure.

    “A fantastic break.”

    We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. We wanted a break away from the busy city life. We were also celebrating our 10th anniversary. We found this hotel to be very secluded and private. We enjoyed our stay here. The staff are all fantastic and go above and beyond.We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.It is truly 5 star.
