Very clean, very comfortable, nice staff - best value for money!
Beautiful location in the Sierra Nevada, great base for hiking, picturesque village, friendly staff, good breakfast, really nice clean and modern rooms, excellent value for money
Quiet, clean and spacious room. Free internet access available throughout the hotel. The hotel didn't seem fully operational. It is located at Monachil and rather hard to find. Not recommended unless with own car or with tour group. Air cond. in our room didn't work during our stay. We suspect it was centrally controlled. Wireless internet is only available in the lounge area.
1st lady at desk excellent most staff unhelpfull - bathroom aqnd toilet no doors and glass see through walls!? - boked for 2 nights but left after 1 because genarally horrible hotel -
Very large room. Despite what is stated, there was no wifi in the room. Internet in the room was possible with a (very short) cable, but if you're unlucky, they are all gone (as I've experienced).
It was a brand new hotel - the room was large & modern with all required comforts. The hotel was still under construction but this did not effect our stay in any way From the website we thought the hotel was in the Sierra Nevada when it was a 30 minute drive away
Lovely hotel, new, clean and helpful staff. I took a bit to find but apart from that a good experience.
Very modern and spacious rooms. The whole hotel is lovely. The reception staff were very welcoming and helpful...Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were obviously genuine in their relationship with the hotel guests. Spa still not open but not too much of a problem. Smoking was allowed in the bar although it had a separate non smoking room adjacent. This prevented us from making full use of the bar.
Excellent hotel with comfortable well appointed rooms. However, the hotel was newly opened and still not fully operational. Good location for Alhambra Palace and sking in the Sierra Nevada.
the service, rooms,and view were great-would stay again
I feel that you should not have to pay for parking and the hot breakfast needs to have more additions like beans and mushrooms
There was no wifi in the rooms and the breakfast was really poor and the hotel bar closed at midnight
We ended up being charged more than what was quoted at the actual place. Plus, our elevator did not go to the floor. Rather we had to get off and climb stairs--my mother had a difficult time, given that she recently had surgery.
almost everything evening meal restricted to 1menu @30euros. too expensive. The access road was dangerous at night, so few passing points.
Lovely welcome, and helpful staff, beautiful hotel and surroundigs. Air-conditionning would be a plus in addition to the fan.
We enjoyed the beautifull location. Very helpfull staff on specific needs.
After staying in noisy cities, the peace and quiet here was wonderful.The rooms all have lovely views and ours was very comfortable. Patricia, the owner, cooked dinner every night - 4 courses of beautiful home cooked food- perfect The breakfast buffet was also the best we had experienced on this trip. the owners did everything they could to make our stay as pleasant as possible. A real gem.
The staff was very personal, the breakfast was excellent with a gorgeous view over the mountains, the hotel was only 15 minutes away from Granada.
Fantastic welcome from the owners and staff - absolutely lovely place to spend a few days!
The ambiance and the perfect welcome and tips made us feel welcome. Beautiful surroundings and quietness, lovely decorated room with the perfect toutch. To find the location was a little difficult, and the road was very narrow.
Very friendly staff, speaking English well. Good info about tours in the environment. Got a cd from the handyman. Really nice people. The location is also very nice. In the middle of the mountains. Once found, you will not fail a second time. But we overlooked the signs and went wrong. The rince in the bathroom was leaking water on the floor. breakfast time is starting from 9:00, pretty late, especially when you want to visit the Alhambra early.
Wanting a relaxing weekend with some nature thrown in we booked this hotel after reading all the good reviews. And we werent disappointed one bit. The location is great, only 10 minutes to the centre of Granada, 2 minutes to Monachil old town, and 20 minutes to the ski station. The hotel itself being an old cortijo is lovely, restored and furnished in a modern yet traditional way. The staff are lovely and very helpful. The food is great, although its a set menu the quality is fantastic and good value. All in all, we were very pleased. We cant wait to return ! Nothing.
beautifull surroundings garden and wiev,nice staff It would be nice if there was a la carte eating
quiet place, very nice decor, friendly and helpful staff room service did not change towels or dirty sheets
the cosy but spacious big rooms, good views and excellent value for money.
the superb service and wonderful rooms!
Wonderful location with great view over the mountains, very friendly and helpful staff, relaxed atmosphere, nice space to hang out in the area by the pool where you could bring your own drinks and nibbles.
Value for money, the lift, individual control of room temperature
Exceptionally friendly staff and with the Alhambra only a 5 mins drive away it's a perfect location.
A nice hotel tucked away in the foothills just outside Granada.
Location, between Granada and Sierra Nevada No dinner facilities, only breakfast
Free parking, nice swimming pool, nice balcony view.
Romantic, typical ispanish, cozy, quiet hotel, beautihul panaroma, good cofee.
Friendly, welcoming owners and dogs! Quiet, countryside location convenient for both Granada and Sierra Nevada. Lovely view of sunsets over Granada from bedroom balcony. Buffet breakfasts are good and three course evening meals are excellent value. The Finca has a rustic, Moorish charm. Difficult to find if relying on GPS/SatNav - use Finca Aldabra's directions!
The Finca and it's rooms are decorated in a lovely Moorish style. The owner was very nice and welcoming as if inviting you into her home. We ate at the restaurant and had a lovely meal for a very reasonable price. Breakfast was very limited, would have liked more choice. Swimming pool looked a bit grubby.
It's a gem. Super friendly and helpful hosts (Enmma). Tastefully individually decorated room all with balcony. Very clean (and deep) pool, lots of shaded area for outdoor and very happening/relaxing out door porch bar area. You will be impressed how this little joint has everything! 3 coure meal at night at 15E with 3 choices of each course. Food (home cook) are at reasonable standard too.. highly recommend it if you want somewhere away from the fuzz and buzz of the city. Hot plate, such as eggs will be good if it's available on request.
The rustic informality and the ability to just relax in the lounge area.The hotel and its staff made you feel you could relax.The rooms were very comfortable and the air-conditioning easy to work etc for warming or cooling the rooms.The hotel had a family atmosphere. The cuisine was local / traditional and very enjoyable. Considering other hotels around the cost was very competitive. Maybe an area for improvement would be the soap and shampoo facilities available, but nothing more.
The owners, Inma and her husband were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Inma spoke good english. We felt like part of the family. Breakfast was "continental" buffet style and the optional evening meal had a choice of 3 starters, 3 mains and 3 desserts. A glass (or two) of wine was included in the price. The food was very good "home" cooking. There is a terrace bar with views of the lights of Granada in the evening and a small pool which was clean. Our room with a balcony had rustic charm and an efficient air-conditioning system. The location had wonderful views and was convenient for the Sierra Nevada and Granada both just 15 minutes drive away.
Everything was perfect. Just what we asked for, nice, clean, quiet, breathtaking views, the nicest staff ever.
The owners have spent a great deal of time and effort to produce one of the very few hotels that not only look like a Spainish farm but it has a very nice feel about it.Thoroughly recommend this hotel for that Spainish feeling none
Very pleasant and helpful hosts. Peaceful location with views over hills to the city. Access to the city was easy by car.
The staff were charming and v helpful.The vista was lovely.The menu de noche was extremely good value and with local recipes.Aspects of the hotel were delightful. Lack of plug in the basin. The shower was badly fixed and adjusted so that we had to hand hold the fitting. After a day skiing, it would have been nice to have had a bath!
Price Tv not working some channels not accessable
it was a really nice hotel for the price requested, and very good services.
It was a good combination, you visit the city and afterwards go back to your hotel we're it's possible to relax in a quiet area!!
The room was lovely and the view was excellent and a small fridge in the room helped. The first day was a nightmare for us with no wi-fi working and the shower was hardly warm, and only one staff member in the back office was helpful. Reception run by waiters who couldn't speak english and too busy to be bothered with trying to help. No tourist information available - and although a restaurant there it seemed empty. We did get room service finally and that was reasonably priced and very nice. Apparently they offer free coffee or tea to your room 24hrs a day - but it was too hard to ask for it!
We had a double room with one bad, but in reality those was two seperate just putted together it makes sleep in this bad imposible.
not the hotel, but it is difficult to find, a sign near the gas station at bottom of hill would help
Great value for money. Fantanstic sized rooms and helpful staff, parking on site, child play area and located with great views just 8km from centre of Grenada (12 minutes drive) and 30km from Sierra Neveda mountains and snow.
very friendly and helpful staff. good food. high standards throughout the hotel. We stayed over a fiesta weekend. a funfair was near by and very loud until late at night, followed by a rock concert until 4am. unable to use swimming pool. building work to the hotel still in progress.
Got a spacious room with big terrace and great views. Tasty decor. Friendly staff. Nice pool-area (no crowds, we were alone). Very quiet area at night. Free parking. It is not the best choice for travellers without own wheels, although there is a bus stop right next to the hotel gate. In one point the bathroom door (room 206) touched the floor. Force was needed to open and close.
The room was clean, liked the swimming pool, friendly hotel staff. The restaurant and our waiter was not up to the expectations, and the standard of the hotel. Would recommend a dinner in the city.
The staff was extremely helpful, the room very comfortable. Good transport to Granada by bus.
very relaxed atmosphere and easy check in and check out. convenient to have private parking. quiet during the night.
The Don Gonzalo is of a very good standard with regard to cleanliness, friendliness and helpfulness of staff and quality of food.
the place is greath to travellers with car, if you dont have one -dont go to this hotel the stuff is greath and we had great time there no
Good value for money base for skiing or Granada. Friendly staff, clean warm room, garage parking available.
old colonial feel, friendly helpful staff, easy access to Alhambra, good view of town and mountain
secure parking and internet access Shower gel and shampoo not replenished so had to go out and buy after first day
It is easy to find when travelling by car. Close to the Alhambra and not too far from the Sierra Nevada resort. Easy parking facility As a whole I would state that it is rather a 2-star class hotel than a 3* one, as listed. In low season, the price is quite high compared to what is usually available in small spanish towns. We paid 85€ on w-e with extra-bed, and 65 € would have been more adequate. The breakfast is frankly poor. The small city of Cenes has absolutely nothing to offer : walking down the mainstreet is quite spleeny, to say the least... But if you are just on a stop-and-go journey it's ok, The hotel is family- managed and they do their best to make your stay enjoyable. If the price were more in line with the package, I would recommend it firmly.
to feel welcome
It was in an excellent position and really made us feel like we were in the mountains. Great experience. Room was quite crowded with four but was still good.
Staff were very friendly and the room was lovely and clean. This is a lovely hotel but unfortunately the location is not great if you want to do anything on foot. Luckily we had a car with us but it would have been nice to have had just one more restaurant or pub within walking distance as you are literally stuck at the hotel. The hotel is lovely and the staff are great but very little English spoken at the hotel and in fact in the region.
It was very nice being close the siera nevada and also close to granada. none
swimming pool, helpful friendly staff, beer mugs, peaceful setting
Absolutely lovely place; good and clean rooms, great views and helpfull staff.
Helpfulness of the staff.
Perfect for everyone who likes to combine a city trip (with Alhambra not to be missed!) and exploring the mountains of the Sierra Nevada / the Alpujarras. Especially Los Cahorros (30 min walk from the hotel) is worth a visit. Staff is very very kind! They make your stay even better. The pool is nice, especially after a long day walking. A car can be helpfull, but the bus goes frequently to Granada and takes less than half an hour. The restaurant was closed during our visit (for renovation) so we don't know if it's good. In summer it's low season so many restaurants in the village are closed, but there's always something to eat. Our bed was a bit hard, but for the rest was the room really comfortabel.
Peaceful setting, friendly and helpful staff. No
Staff was very friendly and helpful. TV with international channels & wireless available. quiet place. A good place to stay if you want to be a bit outside of Granada. It was not difficult to reach the center of Granada by car. There was no water in the pool, but it might have been because it was the end of the season. There are not many restaurants, bars in the area if you don't want to drive. We stayed only one night in the village in the evening. The rest of the time we went to Granada.
Friendly staff, good location and facilities our room was tiny, once unpacked there was little space to move between bed and bathroom. it had a small balcony to compensate for the small interior.
The location was fantastic and the host and hostess could not have been more accommodating to our family of mom,dad, 5 kids (1,5,11,14,15) and grandmother Directions were a bit vague and the English translation not very clear. But it was well worth the difficulty. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
Alicia is a most gracious hostess who welcomed us after a grueling drive with peach nectar and her homemade orange cake to her peaceful oasis in Monachil. Our room was large, as was the bathroom, and there was a hearty breakfast. We initially thought it a little further from the city than we would have liked – especially after the GPS got us lost trying to find it – but the inconvenience of being out of town is more than compensated for in value for money and hospitality. For travelers without a car, there is a bus virtually outside the gate. It would have been ideal to be a little closer to the city centre.
The hotel was simply one of the bests we've ever stayed in. It is a really nice family hotel and the staff did the best to be sure we were having a really nice time. We even got a welcome drink and a farewell present, as well. There was beautiful furniture everywhere and a nice scent in the common rooms. The parking fascilities were also excellent. There is also a nice terrace from where You can see the Sierra Nevada mountains. I'd like to recommend the place to everyone, it is a masterpiece! Congratulations to staff, especially to Carolina!!! Absolutely nothing!! Everything is perfect!
Beautiful small hotel with parking and easily accessible by bus (1.10 euro) to Granada. Spotlessly clean with superb inclusive breakfast. Several tapas bars and restaurants in Monachil itself. Nothing
We went up to Sierra Nevada national Park, Alhambra Palace in Granada,and we drove around Alpujarras, all was great to see and experience. The owners of the hotel could not do enough for you they were lovely.
Spotless, big room, tasty breakfast, secure parking, air conditioning. Friendly and helpful front desk. Excellent value for money.
Excellent hotel with very friendly staff. We had a large room with lovely mountain views. Need a full length mirror in the room.
Welcoming reception, home-made cakes, relaxing rooms with excellent views and on bus route to city. More drawer space would be good but not essential.
staff directions to hotel were incorrect
Excellent friendly staff, very clean and attractive accommodation, close to Granada.
Conveniently located with regular bus connection to Granada. Friendly owner was able to provide neccesary information to ensure I experienced a very pleasant stay. One small niggle, was that due to a machine malfunction I was unable to pay by card and had to settle by cash instead.
