    “As good as expected”

    Great week end all aligned with what you expect in this kind of hotel 10/10. From the check in to the check out all was very well organised. Excellent food and incredible service. Well done to the hotel management.

    “Great family friendly hotel”

    Stay in one of a suite at this hideaway hotel for our wedding anniversary along with our 2 years old boy. The hotel is hidden in between olive plantation and its pretty decent road towards the hotel itself. The hotel offer a good parking spaces. The lobby itself is lovely with a high ceiling and a seating arrangements with sofas close to the grand piano on a display. The room we stayed in have a fantastic view offer the mountain with generous en-suite, a living room also a patio. There are two swimming pools, with the biggest one mostly fills up with a family with children. The pool is fantastic for children as they are in a good depth, however do accompany your toddler each time you spend your time by the pool even though they have life guard on-duty. There is a free canapés or snack offered by the pool almost everyday at around noon time. You can also order some snack and beverages by the pool if you like. The restaurant "El Mirador" by the pool is usually where we go to for lunch and don't forget to put on some clothes before you sat in a restaurant for lunch time. I've had the best pulpo a la plancha during the lunch BBQ and my husband agreed with me on that. The estate is quite expansive so you can explore with various option. Either with the bike ride, ATV, a walking trail and a short drive to visit their in-house stable where you can see a horse and a donkey. We visited the turtle pond with our son and he loves to feed the turtle with a piece of bread. There is a small playground close by and a little walk to Romeo & Juliet viewpoint is pretty refreshing. We tried the ATV ride over the olive plantation with some guide and our 2 years old son enjoyed it so much. Went for a horseback riding in the morning in a nearby stable while their friendly in-house baby sitter looking after our son. Went for dinner the first night we arrived at El Cortijo (reservation needed) and surprised by how many family with children they were. We feel super welcome by the waitresses and they gave us a table even though we didn't make any reservation. Had our romantic dinner at their gourmet restaurant "La Finca" (reservation needed) for our wedding anniversary while the baby sitter looking after our son. This restaurant is definitely worth to be reckon with as the dish they served and how they plated it is fantastic. And using local ingredients and wine from Spanish winery is magnificent as they utilised the local produced. The breakfast is great. Finally! The hotel with family friendly that has offered a great experience, a fantastic service and a fabulous people. La Bobadilla is a great destination for family with children that are looking to unwind and just relax while the children well looked after by the in-house baby sitter if you needed one.

    “We keep going back!”

    The first time I went to La Bobadilla was for a girls short break. We had the perfect stay and were so pleased at the quality of the place that I’ve since been back another 4 times with my husband. Unfortunately on my second stay I had occasion to make a formal complaint to the CEO, and was invited to come back and let them prove they could provide the service I’d received on my first visit. I’m always sceptical about spending my money to give someone a chance to prove me wrong, however, I did book again because I knew how good this place really is get it right, and I’m still going back. The hotel is in the middle of nowhere, about an hour from Granada. It is beautifully decorated, furnished and laid out and the rooms are a great size and all very individual. The breakfast buffet has to be one of the best I’ve ever eaten, with a huge selection of breads and pastries, good quality cured meats, ocean trout and smoked salmon, tortilla, fruit etc etc plus a cooked breakfast you can order from your table if preferred (this isn’t always fabulous and I prefer the buffet). The complex has the most stunning pools (3 outdoors) that are set in a wonderful grassy setting with poolside attendants providing water (although only when you first arrive, it would be fantastic to receive top ups throughout the day) and on my last trip a sun lounger pillow which was a fabulous idea. The restaurants are all different with La Finca being a fine dining restaurant along with another dinner restaurant, plus a lunch one close to the pool that has recently opened. The food is generally of a very high standard with the occasional hiccup, but to be honest I’ve begun to start overlooking this because the rest of the experience is so good. Most importantly for me, i can see that it’s important to the staff to know that I’ve been looked after and if there are any issues, that they are resolved quickly. The service has been fabulous and I really do enjoy my visits here. On my last stay there was a noise issue with a huge metal frame being erected inside the closed lunch restaurant for an event which was very noisy and went on for several hours, however, when I spoke to staff, they asked the workmen to stop and I enjoyed the remainder of my stay. I’d like to thank all of the staff, particularly Lucia who cannot do enough to ensure our stays are enjoyable. We love this place and will be back again in the summer. Oh and totally unrelated to this post but I have also posted a review of the Sancti Petri royal hideaway which I’d avoid at all costs as it’s not in the same league as this hotel despite it being part of the same group.
