Nice to know

An eco-pioneer, La Bobadilla is the first luxury hotel to use ultra-sustainable biomass fuel from olives as an energy source for their heating and hot water. This has enabled the hotel to reduce their CO2 emissions by 80% and their energy consumption by 45%. Very clever!

The luxurious spacious rooms, recently renovated, are all differently decorated and equipped with satellite TV, telephone, free Wi-Fi, air conditioning, heating, minibar, safe, bathroom with bath and separate shower (except Junior Suite Solarium), toilet, bidet, hairdryer and magnifying mirror, terrace, balcony or garden.

Our favourite room

We love the superior deluxe with balcony or terrace.

Enjoy a refreshing swim

Relax at one of the two beautifully located large outdoor swimming pools, including a separate shallow area for children, equipped with loungers.

Work out and wind down

After a day packed with activities, unwind in the spa with indoor heated pool, sauna, Turkish bath and jacuzzi. You can also go for a body and/or facial treatment. In fact, there are revamped treatments designed by Natura Bissé, where you can find all kinds of personalised treatments. Children are also welcome in the spa between 1 pm and 2 pm and between 4 pm and 5 pm. Prefer something active? There are plenty of activities such as tennis, padel, horseshoe pitching, cycling, ping pong, board games, hiking, and badminton. Less than 5 km from the hotel, you can also go horse riding.
