This was our 4th for 5th stay at Victor's fabulous hotel (family live in the area). We spent a week here this time, staying in one of the very large bedrooms overlooking the pool and gardens. The beds are comfortable, the AC efficient, fridge in room, super bathroom with great water pressure, excellent balcony, individually decorated rooms. Really superb pool, with salt water, not chlorine, great pool showers and WC close. Sufficient sunbeds and plenty of shade if you don't want to sit on the pool terrace. Staff always available, Victor, young Victor and another barman. Hotel immaculately clean (we were always up early and staff mostly finished cleaning common parts by 9am). Fair standard buffet breakfast, loads of choice of fruit and meats and bread (would have been good to have been offered an egg option). Loads of terrace space for drinks. Superb location for exploring the area - both driving to different villages and some challenging walking! We would never consider staying anywhere else as you can go out for the day and there is the hotel bar and 3 other bar/restaurants within easy walking distance so no need to drive again in the evening. Plus superb, personal welcome

This hotel is an absolute Gem. The owners have had it for 19 years and the decoration and style is unique. The central entrance room is a forest of mature indoor plants and palms and there are interesting and varied local art on all the walls. There are books in numerous languages on nearly every table. Our room was colouful and the balcony overlooked the swimming pool and the rugged gorge further down the valley. We were going to eat a simple supper but the owner offered us the set menu that another group of walkers were having. It was a feast of tapas, and a delicious Hake dish and dessert. We were stuffed.

I think this is the only accommodation in this very quiet Las Alpujarras. Perhaps the only disadvantage is the very narrow unfenced road leading to it from the main road. As a consequence we took all our evening meals in the village rather than have a night time drive back from one of the other villages in the area. Dinner at "the Piano Bar" was excellent on both evenings.

We would like to thank you for your opinion which helps us to maintain and try to improve the service we provide. In effect, the access from the main road is 2km of local road, a little narrower, but well asphalted. This aspect, we do not have the possibility of improving it ourselves, and probably contributes to Mecina Fondales being a small paradise of nature and tranquillity.

Were staying at the hotel for a full week - as a starting point for several walks in the neighborhood. The rooms are pretty big, beds very o.k. and facilities also o.k. - fridge in the room. Food is great and the little bar serves what you want. I did not miss anything during my stay, thanks to the owners (Victor and Therese)! There's a pool, but since i was there in April, it was a bit too cold. In the village you can find a few good restaurants and a bar - nearest shops are approx. 2 km. away.

A wonderful location, charming and comfy hotel in the midsts of the Sierra Nevada. It is a family-run hotel, with very welcoming staff (and Tobby, the dog :-))) that make you feel at home. The rooms are carefully decorated as is the rest of the hotel, that is beautifully influenced by the Moorish athmosphere. Definitely recommend!!!
