    “Not quite 5 star! But still very relaxing ”

    We checked in with two children and our dog for a luxury 5 night stay. We had a very relaxing time but felt that the hotel falls short of a 5 star experience. A few things niggled: only one glass of iced water per person by the pool each day: why not just have a jug available?! Pool area service was very poor in general, a struggle to order a drink when desired. Two restaurants, both slightly above average but quite similar menus and fairly formal, it would have nice to have a really high quality formal restaurant and something more informal, perhaps offering tapas, it is Spain after all! It was a long drive to the nearest restaurants so we preferred to stay at the hotel. Finally, we requested tickets for the Alhambra on practically every day and were told someone would look into it and let us know...in the end we gave up asking and fortunately managed to book our own. Kids club was great and we were glad dogs were accepted but the long list of conditions and extra nightly fee left us feeling maybe they weren’t actually welcome! This hotel is very relaxing, the staff are very nice but it just doesn’t live up to 5 star status, sorry!

    “Total enrichment”

    I am a world traveler for 40 years and La Bobidilla is one of the very best hotel experiences I have had. The whole setting is calm, tranquil and the service and room we had, with a garden, was as good as I have been to. Service was close to faultless and the pool area was way above average, with a size that is very generous and with no feeling of space encroachment. I would recommend the hotel to all savvy and worldly travellers.

    “Two Day visit with family ”

    Five of us (all adults) stayed here for two days. We had a brilliant stay, and felt thoroughly relaxed after only a brief time. The staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly and the rooms were spacious and luxurious. We ate both nights at one of the two hotel restaurants and the food was delicious. Would highly recommend for a short stay where you just want to unwind and get away from it all!

    “Do it.”

    Thank you to the reviewer that said just book it and treat yourself! This resort was a highlight of our trip to Spain. From here you can do day trips to nearby destinations and then relax in the afternoon and evenings. This hotel’s breakfast looks simple when you first walk in - but the CARE they put into everything they serve was much appreciated. The assortment of fresh juices, breads, honey, spices, meats, cheeses, champagne, and anything hot you wanted to order - it was awesome and we spent an hour longer than planned each day just enjoying it. We had some communication issues when we booked a junior suite for our family of 4 - 2 adults and 2 kids and the hotel reception resolved it in a fair and professional way. The bikes and trails on site were a little lackluster, old rusty bikes in ok condition but we did go for a short ride but would’ve liked to do more. The pool is heavenly and so peaceful and the swinging chairs in the shade as well. More food by the pool would’ve been great but we are gluttonous Americans so.. The dinners both at Finca and Cortija were fabulous and we had the same waiters who learned what we liked quickly and were eager to please which we really appreciated! LOVED our stay here. So, to pass on the previous reviewer’s sentiment - just do it!!

     Dear guest, We greatly appreciate the time you spent to share your recent holiday experience at our La Bobadilla and we thank you for your kind recommendation to Tripadvisor’s readers . We would like to comment that we offer bikes as a courtesy and recommend a soft ride near the hotel, for that, we have an external maintenance bikes service that comes weekly. Moreover, our maintenance department clean and check the bikes daily. We agree that it is a very used service and make the bikes appearance a bit lacklustre, although we assure that they are ready for a soft ride, so thank you for letting us know your impression that we will take it into consideration. On the other hand, thank you for your wonderful feedback, to be considered a highlight on your Spanish holidays keeps us motivated to encounter the compliance of our demanding quality standards. We look forward to your next visit. Best regards, Manuel Quintana General Manager La Bobadilla, a Royal Hideaway Hotel

    “Beautiful remote location”

    We loved the 3 mile drive into the olive orchard to stay at this gorgeous resort. Our junior suite was large and luxurios although due to all the humiditythe sheets were rather damp feeling and it smelled a bit musty. The grounds and rooms were very beautiful. The pool was very nice. We were surprised by the number of families with kids at what we thought was more of an adult destination. The breakfast was amazing with all the fresh local fruit and pastries. Service was very good. Occasionally there was a sewer smell in some of the hallways of the resort. When we mentioned it we were immediately told someone would look into it, which suggested to us this wasn't the first time they had ever heard that complaint. Dinner on the patio, the cheaper dining option was very good and terrific service but quite spendy. We had a lovely 4 days relaxing and using it as our place to go explore Seville and Grenada and come back to a nice resort.
