If you use an online reservation service to make your bookings ensure to request specifically a room that is specially adapted for the disabled when you make your booking. Note however most online reservations services cannot guarantee that you will obtain a specially adapted room because this decision is left down to the discretion of the hotel. However you should most certainly follow up your booking with the online reservation company by telephone and specifically ask the reservation company to contact the hotel directly on your behalf to ensure the specially adapted room is reserved for you. If you do not do this follow up call you may not obtain the room and it is highly recommended that you do this follow up as soon as you have made your online booking.
If you book through Spainbookers.com put your specific request in the additional notes section when you submit your online booking. Then follow up immediately and call the customer services department to request they contact the hotel directly on your behalf.
Alternatively you can try ringing up hotels individually.
