Lakeside Hotels in Andalucia
Although the region’s mountains and beaches are well-known for their beauty, Andalucía also houses picturesque inland bodies of water where you can stay. You can expect accommodation here to be more traditional, as the lakes and reservoirs are quite dispersed and usually found in rural locations, though they may have sizeable towns nearby.
Lakeside hotels offer basic facilities and services, and most notably stunning views and locations by lakes, where guests can find a variety of activities from swimming and water sports to fishing (depending on the specific lake). Malaga province has some wonderful reservoir and lakeside hotels.
The following lakeside hotels are selected from our affiliate partners.
