“El ventorro”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

We have visited el Ventorro twice, each time as a birthday treat. The first time we stayed in one of the cave bedrooms, the second in "an above ground bedroom". We enjoyed both. We also booked the arab bath experience with massage which made for a special occasion. Each time we took friends and they enjoyed the stay equally. After a good breakfast we walked down the gorge to Alhama de Granada (highly recommended) and managed to return in time for the set lunch menu, which is excellent value. Friendly staff, pleasant ambiance, pretty setting. A shame the restaurant is only open for lunch. Would definitely visit again.

My husband, 8-month old daughter and I had a wonderful stay at El Ventorro. We stayed in a cave-room - really different, spotless and nicely decorated. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming, particularly in relation to our daughter. We thoroughly enjoyed three visits to the serene and relaxing baths. Would wholeheartedly recommend!

Great stay. The rooms are tastefully decorated with Moroccan. Furniture and accesories. We stayed inthe cave rooms. We didn't have windows in our rooms but I disnt miss that. The hammam is fab as well. The restaurant is only open for lunch but the town is a short drive away.
Great trip for when it gets colder in Andalusia.

Just a wonderful getaway. Haven't seen the other 21 modern rooms, because we wanted to stay in a cave. Room 36, Zaida, did'nt have a window, that we didn't like, so remember to order a cave with a window. That is if you want it, of course:-) Otherwise, nice decorated room and huge bathroom. The restaurant is so cozy and calm, no music or TV, just loved the food. And you can buy local oil, soap, cream. Located by a lake you can make small walks. Restaurant closed on evenings but Alhama de Granada is just 5 min away by car, and you can walk along the gorge of 2 km. Top of it all was the Hammam. 3 various temperatures in the basins and a Turkish bath as well. Bring your own bathing hat and sandals or they'll charge you extra because it's obligatory.

Reviewed 26 August 2007

Hotel El Ventorro has been around for a long time and has recently expanded to include an Arab Baths and additional rooms hewn into the cliff/rock behind the hotel.
Situated about 2km outside the charming little town of Alhama de Granada, this is a great base to explore the surrounding countryside. The rooms are very clean, comfortable & well-appointed and they'll happily set up a larger room for a family (we paid €80 per night, inc. b'fast, for 2 adults and two children).
The Arab Baths weren't quite finished when we stayed, but we toured around them and were very impressed and hope to return to try them out sometime soon.
The restaurant (closed Mondays) has an excellent reputation locally too, serving traditional Andalucían country fare.
