Set in a stunning location, the Santa Cruz hotel is located barely 10 kms away from the ski village and just 10 minutes´drive. It offers a fantastic alternative to staying in the resort in terms of being a much more economical option as well as offering a beautiful base. The hotel overlooks the spectacular Genil valley and the picturesque mountain village of Güejar Sierra, and offers the perfect setting for a serene and calming stay in contrast to the full-on activity on the ski slopes.
(During the summer months, the pool opens and sports grounds are available for numerous activities, not to mention a host of hiking options at your fingertips).
The bedrooms are spacious and decorated in rustic style, and all have an en-suite bathroom.
There are also 23 bungalows which sleep up to a maximum of three people in each, offering an authentic "stone cabin" style of accommodation. Please note that there is no WIFI internet coverage in the bungalows, only in the main hotel building.
This is a good option for anyone travelling on a tighter budget, whilst at the same time offering a unique form of mini "split" holiday with the contrast between the busy ski scene in the resort and the relaxing, peaceful environment surrounding the hotel.
The hotel operates a shuttle bus service to / from the resort as follows: Clients are issued with a number between 8.00 and 8.30 a.m. and then the first shuttle service departs at 9.00 a.m., taking those with the first group of numbers. It then returns for the next succession of numbers and continues to do so until finally everyone has been transported. Return trips start from 5.00 p.m. as soon as there are seven people waiting to head down.
