    Superb if occasionally terrifying drive along very windy roads. Orjiva and Lanjaron worth a visit. Nice reastaurant in Lanjaron (can't remember the name but on right hand side going up the hill). Serves roast Kid and Kid stew.

    Granada - 1 hour north of Motril - is a very beautiful old styled city. It has a university - and with that - a lot of young people giving the city a special cultural color. The architecture is a kind of historical Spain with Moorish influence.
    You will find plenty of nice bars and coffee´s and tapa´s bars.
    Actual you don´t need to visit the (famous?) alhambra - one of the torist magnets in southern Spain. It is allways crowded with tourists, expensive and you need a pre-booking for your entrance cards.

    The Sierra Nevada is an impressing rock mass in the south of Spain. There are a lot of interesting spots, small villages and beautiful valleys. In winter season there are a lot of possibilities for skiing and other snow sports.
    The most places are easy to reach by car (not almost in winter!).
    From Motril it takes about 2 hours to reach the first rocks.

    The place has a nice cheerful air about it, it is on the beach road from the port to the Golf area in Motril.
    We had a simple lunch of a Rosca( Massive bagel type bread ample for two big eaters) filled with jamon and queso, drizzled with olive oil. Yumbo!( 8 Euro)
    Side order of chips which were very nicely done and no funny oily taste.
    Coffee and ice cream to follow which again was good.
    The server/owner is a small happy little fella.
    All in all recomemded for an inpromptu relaxed luch.
    More or less opposite the Hotel Gran Elba, Motril.

    Favorite Dish: We really enjoyed the Rosco- have had one in the past and was not so keen, but this was absolutely excellent.

    Hotel from the North (Calle Moral)

    Lunch time specials are great value for money. The hotel restaurant (including garden area) fills up with locals. Well worth a try.

    What to buy: In Motril and around is the only place in Spain where they are able to grow up sugar cane - due to a special micro-clima in that area. With that cane they produce a rum called "Ron Palido". The name means, that you get a little pallid after drinking too much... They serve it in local bars mixed with lemon and cola.

    What to pay: I have not been there since changement to the Euro, I guess it is about 10 Eur for a bottle

Motril Warnings and Dangers

    Our apartment is the one with the roof terrace

    by mikezawadzki Written Sep 17, 2008

    Even though we were at second floor level, we left a door open onto the roof terrace and went out for a few hours. When we got back, some British cash we left behind was stolen. Allegedly, thieves have perfected a way of climing over roofs during siesta time and break into flats and houses. Amazingly, my camera was not touched! (Too difficult to carry over roof tops?). Always lock your room / flat / villa.
