“Stunning views, average apartments”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2012

Positives:
- you can't fault the view. It really is stunning, especially if you get the Sacramento Room,
- We enjoyed the freezing cold pool in April, so I'm sure its lovely in the summer

Negatives:
- apartments are rather more basic than we were expecting
- the apartments are advertised as being able to hold more than 2 people, but I would never want to stay here with any more than 2 to a room.
- You need to be in relaxed holiday mode to cope with the staff - they aren't great at being where they have agreed to be. For example and we weren't able to check out properly as one of the guys forgot to set his alarm for the agreed time (8am!) and then simply couldn't be bothered to check us out when we eventually woke him up, so we ended up just having to walk out of the apartments.
- The apartments are in need of a decent plumber.
- The apartments are quite musty. Including the ones that are not caves.

It was amazing that i found such a wonderful place to stay! While making a reservation for a guitar flamenco course in the 'escuela Carmen de las Cuevas', wich was by the way very excellent too!, they recommended the Apartamentos Montesclares; they sure did know why! We come from Belgium and we have stayed for 7 nights with two adolescent children. The vieuw was marvelous, the environment special, lovely...
Maybee two minor things : the sofabed is a bit small for two adult persons and the swimmingpool wasn't always that clean. But that wouldn't stand in our way too have a great and relaxing vacation! The host where very friendly and willing too help. If you want you can get clean towels, bedsheets, more toiletpaper and even you can use the washingmachine!
I can talk more but I believe you got the picture! We had a wonderful stay that we will not easy forget! If we can we will sure come back again!

These apartments are not up to code, as far as Canadian standards go. To lock the apartment door from the inside you need a key which would be deadly in a fire situation as you would burn to death trying to find the key.
Also, to leave the main compound you need a key and they gave us the wrong one. We were stuck in the compound for the better part of an evening.
The nearby flamenco bar and the other guests kept us awake until 2 am and the pool was broken, having leaked into the apartments as well.
Taxis might have a hard time finding this place so tell them you want to go to the nearby flamenco bar, I think it is called the tanta.
This place is a 2 km hike from the alhambra albeit a nice one. Watch out for gypsies on the plaza nueva as they WILL try to steal your wallet or your bag. Do not give them money when they beg.

I would 100% recommend these apartments. The location overlooking the Alhambra is amazing. It is a nice walk in to town, a little steep towards the apartment , but not too bad.

We stayed in a cave apartment, which was really comfortable and clean, and just outside the door we had the patio table with the view.

The plunge pool is lovely to cool off on a hot day.

We really enjoyed our stay.

Absolutely recommend these apartments. We stayed for 2 nights - the view of the Al Hambra is simply second to none. Every morning I'd wake up and be amazed at the sight of it. It's a hike to get there, and in to town generaly, but there are regular buses and the view more than makes up for it.
The apartments are clean, fully equipped for cooking which we really appreciated, and there is a small store just a few houses away with basic necessities so you can easily self cater. The owners are welcoming and I felt would go out of their way to assist with anything. They have arrangements for guarded parking nearby for about 5EU a night, as I recollect. The pool area would be lovely in summer, but the view and atmosphere of the place are fantastic at any time.
