  • I loved it, and the buffet breakfast was very adequate. Letter extensive and seasoned with dishes themselves from the land. Good atmosphere, and outstanding views.

  • There are several times that we have been in the view of the sunset and watching the Alhambra, while a group of Gypsies was started with some flamenco. An unspeakable image. The problem is that it is becoming increasingly more crowded and hard to open a gap for a photo of the Alhambra and the Sierra Nevada snow. The stalls, street artists of varying quality and street vendors have proliferated. It loses the charm.
