Trip Report Granada, Sevilla and Málaga with kids

Jump to last reply

Our 3 years as ex-pats in the UK is coming to an end. For our final fling, we spent our October Half term break visiting Andalusia, Spain for the first time. Our only previous trip to Spain was in 2009 visiting friends in Madrid.

Long blog with too many photos here:
http://ukfrey.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/andalusia-spain.html

Some pertinent info:

Who: Family of 4 (daughter 14, son 11), American ex-pats living in Derby, UK.

When: 9 nights in October

Where: Granada (2), Sevilla (5), Málaga (2). Day trip to Córdoba from Sevilla.

Transportation:

Jet2 from East Midlands to Málaga

Málaga to Granada: coach from the Málaga bus station to Granada. 2 hrs. 45€ total for 4. Required taking a city bus from the airport to the main bus station. The express bus was there so we took it (3€ pp).

Granada to Sevilla: bus, 3 hrs, 86€

Made a classic rookie mistake here. When arriving in Granada I was so preoccupied about getting to our apartment that I didn’t take the time to buy the Sevilla tickets even though there was no line whatsoever. I subconsciously thought it would be like that when we came back on Monday. When coming back to the bus station on the departure day, the line was huge and our preferred slot was full so we had to take one 3 hours later. Involved storing bags and heading back to the city (7€ for lockers, 5€ each way for the bus). Lemonade from lemons as we got some extra visiting in, but some cost could have been avoided had I pre-purchased the tickets when at the station 2 days prior.

Sevilla – Córdodba – Sevilla: Mesa (table) seats for 4 on the AVE train pre-purchased ~4 weeks out. 45 minutes. Approx 95 €

Sevilla – Málaga: commuter train, 2+ hrs, 84€. Purchased 2 days earlier when at station for Córdoba (learned my lesson).

Lodging:

Recall that we are a family of four so our options are 2 doubles, a family room or an apartment (preferable 2BR). We look for well-located, roomy and clean accommodations with wi-fi. We don’t need many bells and whistles. Happy with all of our choices.

Granada: Habitat Suites on Gran Via 17

180€ pn for 2-BR semi-serviced apartment. Splurged for the 2BR -- still comparable or better than other options for 4. Great find IMO. Helpful staff. Well located. Big and clean.

Sevilla: Meson del Moro from Spain Select

http://sevilla.spain-select.com/en_US/rent-apartments/meson-del-moro

Two BR / two bath apartment in Santa Cruz. Not quite as grand as the photos and probably at the low end of the Spain Select offerings but it is also priced appropriately for 4. Great location. Wi-fi a little dodgy. 140€ pn.

Málaga: Hotel Don Curro

Very well located 3-star hotel for 120€ pn with breakfast. Not perfect (wi-fi in particular) but a reasonable value.
