We stayed in Dona Mencia to have a hub for exploring Northern Andalucia. We chose Dona Mencia on the back of Youtube videos and reviews. The Hotel Dona Mencia Subbetica did not dissapoint from start to finish. It is worth pointing out from the outset, that we got a deal for a week in July for 2 adults and a child for £400 including breakfast. The Hotel is very easy to find if travelling north from Malaga and the Hotel offers spacious free parking. The room was clean with a balcony, with a fantastic view over the mountains. The bathroom spacious with free toiletries, hairdryer and plenty of towels. The Hotel is modern and has a cafeteria with a range of meals, a great restaurant with a la carte options with magnificent tables outside, looking over the area. The Pool is very good with plenty of loungers surrounding.
Staff deserve huge credit, none speak English, but a little Spanish will get you by no problem. A perfect location in the hills close to Cordoba, really good temps of around 36 degrees in July. A skilled chef on site who uses quality local ingredients, that allow total relaxation, away from the awful sights of All Day English Breakfasts on the Costa. Superb value with great Spanish hospitality and wine by the glass at under 2 Euros. Brilliant.More
