We stayed here for a couple of nights on our honeymoon recently. It wasn't the fanciest place we stayed, but it was one of the most enjoyable. After the bustle of Barcelona and the sightseeing in Granada, we really enjoyed having a couple of quiet days relaxing.
Granada, we really enjoyed having a couple of quiet days relaxing. Staying in a cave was really neat. We went in the summer, when it was quite hot, and the caves are wonderfully cool and quiet. it feels lovely. Our cave was impeccably clean and had a kitchen, living room, bedroom, and outdoor patio area. We picked up groceries from a supermarket in Guadix (bread, cheese, meats, olives, fruit) and had lovely meals on the patio.
The hotel grounds are really very pretty, and we enjoyed spending some time relaxing by the pool. At sunset, we poured a glass of wine and took a walk down a little dirt road behind the property through some olive groves. The Arab baths were also delightful, and we had them all to ourselves when we were there.
The owners are very nice and hospital, and were very helpful in finding things to do around the area. Gaudix doesn't have a lot to see, but the old quarter and cathedral are pretty, the cave museum was interesting in a quaint kind of way, there are some good tapas bars, and we found the most amazing churros and chocolate at Versalles, a little cafe downtown. The monoliths also made for an interesting day trip, and you definitely feel like you're getting way off the beaten path.
