Hello everyone,

I like the look of the Classical Spain holiday. Has anyone done this holiday before? Are the hotels decent and well located?

thanks

I did this tour with Riviera last year and it looks like they are using the same hotels next year.

All were good standard. The Mijas hotel is in a lovely location but it was a bit of a walk to the town for dinner, but it looks like they are including dinner for these new tours so that won't matter.

Seville is located right by the old town so great location.

in Granada I stayed at the Alixeres which was pretty much opposite the Alhambra, they had a great terrace restaurant there as well as a regular buffet and there were some other estaurants just around the hotel. They also use another hotel which I didn't stay at but it looks like it is right in the middle of town so should be fine

hope that helps?

That's very helpful thank you.

Did the hotels have pools? is there even time to use them?

sorry for all the questions!

I'm pretty sure all 3 had a pool.

As a recall the Seville hotel has one up on the roof which was quite nice. Mijas I think so, but I arrived quite late so never would have used it anyway. Alixeres did, a few people were in there on the last day before the airport transfer

Thanks so much, I think my mind is pretty much made up then! I take it that you would recommend the holiday?

Hi Tilly, depending on what kind of walking difficulties you have, they may be suitable.

Our included tours on this holiday are a trip around Seville, with a short section on foot. There are then the visits to the Alhambra and Mezquita which will involve a little walking on different levels. It may be best for you to give us a call and we can talk you through your specific situation to make sure you book the ideal holiday with us

Thanks
