Do NOT rent the suit 303, you will NOT be able to sleep in this room when its raining. We complained, no reaction after spending 55.000,-EUR fore two nights. The service, the people working and so on was nice.

My wife likes skiing and around Malaga airport, just a 2,5 hours flying out of Belgium, there is a hidden gem, called EL Lodge on a short distance-ride from Malaga in the the Sierra Nevada mountains. We decided to go to the slopes in Monachil/Sierra Nevada with a beautiful ride in the mountainous ride to the some 2500 meters high...

We didn't stay here as our last minute plan to come out here meant it was already full - but we did make lunch. We've skied here three times before, just for 2-3 days and this hotel is a cut above the rest. It is cool luxe and reminded us of La Portetta in 1650 but smaller and Spanish! We...

Small and perfectly formed hotel in Sierra Nevada. The service was excellent and it was very easy to organise skiing from the lodge. One cloudy and one bright sunshine. The food was good, the place felt very homely and full of fun gadgets for the kids and people smiled a lot. End of the day in the mini pool to...

We stayed for three nights at this amazingly comfortable hotel and wanted for nothing. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful and the accommodation is perfect. When not skiing, we used the warm outdoor pool, gym and spa. The outdoor terrace is the ideal venue for lunch, with heaters when the weather is chilly. Luckily, the weather was perfect throughout...

El Lodge is situated in Monachil, in the heart of the Sierra Nevada Ski Resort, the most southerly Ski Resort in Europe.

This exclusive hotel, a member of the globally recognised Small Luxury Hotels of the World™ (SLH), will officially re-open in December.
