    “What an incredible place!”

    We have spent 6 nights at la Bobadilla with young children (aged 4-11). We had the most amazing stay. The place, which you reach after a 3km drive among their olive trees, is beautiful. There are 3 outdoor pools, one of which is huge. There are lifeguards on duty (very handsome young men!) and cold iced water is being brought to you every hour. You can also order cocktails or beer by the pool. There are plenty of loungers so no need to come down early to book one! You also get given small pillows for the loungers - bliss! There is a small but sufficient indoor gym with 2 running machines and cold towelettes available. We didn’t try the spa, but it looked good! We jogged through the olive grove, cycled with the kids, played tennis, and did an olive oil tasting (and learnt a lot in the process!). There is also a small playground for the kids, a lake with turtles and an indoor pool table. So much on offer! The food is really excellent, but rather expensive. I have to say that the one place they recommended for us to eat out in a nearby village was dire... I am not sure if this was done on purpose! Breakfast is absolutely amazing with an array of fresh juices, homemade jams and compotes, pastries, fruits, yoghurts and lots of healthy options also. Families with kids and couples on romantic breaks have sufficient space to all cohabit happily! Our suite (6) was massive, with an outdoor roof terrace and own sun lounger. It was cleaned at least twice a day. We are very sad to leave this oasis and would love to return.

    “Oasis in Andalusia”

    We drove down the small road through the hills and olive orchards to finally turn a corner and come upon the white washed palace that is Bobadilla. A beautiful, village like property with a variety of restaurants, interesting architecture, traditional but clean rooms, cheerful and helpful staff (Laura at Front desk was particularly helpful), a wonderful spot to spend a few days or more.

    “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!
