Activities abound at La Escondida

A recently-renovated indoor pool with experienced spa therapists, and a brand new outdoor pool for the sun worshipers are sufficient temptations to keep you at Escondida for as long as your stay.
But for the more energetic there is a vast array of activities that can be arranged via the hotel: walking, mountain biking, horse riding, golf, hunting, sight-seeing and days out to villages and nearby places of natural beauty to name but a few.
Escondida's surrounding woodlands are also rich in animal life - wild boar, deer and the rare Iberian lynx roam the land - and you'll also spot an abundance of different bird life, including golden eagles - a species rarely seen in Europe.


We have two swimming pools. Our indoor pool is heated during the winter months and our new stunning outdoor pool is wonderfully set in our beautifully landscaped garden.

Well-qualified therapists will bring you back to life in our pamper rooms.

(Period for the swimming pool outdoor from the 1st of June until the 1st of October)
