My wife and I are planning our first trip to Spain in late November. Our plan is to stay four nights in Barcelona, another three nights in Valencia, then pick up a rental car in Valencia and drive down to Granada, Jerez de la Frontera and Seville. We are thinking of a one-night stop at the geothermal spa at Balneario of Archena, however many of the reviews for the accommodation there is quite poor, although reviews for the spa itself are all very good. I think it would be a nice relaxing stop during our travels.
I am interested in any accommodation suggestions near the spa at Balneario of Archena. Would it be better to stay in Murcia and then just drive up to the spa? Or would it be better to just forgo the spa and just continue driving down to Granada, adding an additional stay either there or in Jerez de la Frontera.
Many thanks for your suggestions!
