Life at Plaza 18


Staying at Plaza 18 is like staying at a large private home. Check-in and reception is at the adjacent La Casa del Califa leaving Plaza 18 a tranquil space where guests are free to use the sitting room, courtyard and terraces at their own pace.

Aditional services

Guests staying at Plaza 18 have free use of the Califa’s many facilities including its underground massage room, the cocktail bar with its panoramic views and of course the award winning Jardín del Califa, one of Andalucías landmark restaurants set in an enclave of 10th. and 16th. century buildings. Access to the Califa is through a discreet back door direct from Plaza 18.

The sitting room, honesty bar...

While at Plaza 18 enjoy the large light-filled sitting room full of interesting works of art, comfy furniture and a well-stocked honesty bar. The sitting room has underfloor heating for the winter months and air conditioning for the summer.

The bar includes spirits, wine, cava, beer, soft drinks and juices. Serve yourself anytime; just write it down on the bar log.

... and tea time

Join us for a classic British afternoon tea every day from 17:00 to 19:00 (included in the stay). Enjoy delicious and daily housemade delicacies made by the Califa’s chef Amina Essaadi with an afternoon tea in our sitting room. Inside in the living room or outside in the terrace with charming views, every instant is dedicated to you.


Breakfast (included in your stay) is served in the garden of the neighbouring Casa del Califa (accessed through an internal private door so you can have breakfast in your slippers!) with views across the town and the rolling countryside. We use the Califa’s best ingredients from the local farms to provide an authentic Andalucían, European or if you prefer Moroccan breakfast. The perfect start to the day.
