This hotel came as a suggestion from a really good friend literally the night before. Once hearing about it, I had to say here. Nothing prepared me for the experience I was about to have. It was so amazing and beyond. Hotel Marques de Riscal thinks of everything. From the service they offer to the care they provide, all of... More

From the moment you drive into The Hotel Marques del Riscal you feel you are in a dream, the rooms are big with a roomy bathroom, my husband and I felt very pampered the whole time we where there (choose the breakfast in bed package)! We also tried the Caudalie vinotherapie Spa and were very pleased. Loved it!

A couple of years ago, I took a long-distance cab ride to try to photograph this hotel. Access is blocked by guards--you can only get on the property (aside from the little wine shop) with a reservation for the hotel, restaurant, or winery tour. In the fall, I returned with my boyfriend, this time with a hotel reservation. We rented... More

Every comfort we could want. We ate in the gastronimic Michelin star restaurant and had the 12course tasting menu with wine to suit the course (not 12 glasses of... More

Rooms are very spacious and a nice Spa - treatment was OK but not great . Pool and outdoor space are nice places to relax . There are 2 restaurants the bistro... More

I was very worried that this hotel would not be "worth it" (yes, it is VERY expensive) given we are staying in lovely places throughout France and Spain. So much so I thought of cancelling, but am glad I didn't. The staff are warm and not pretentious, and we were lucky enough to have room 14 in the main hotel... More

A real treat - visually no where else I have stayed compares. Marvelous views from the hotel over the Rioja region and its wineries. 2 lovely onsite restaurants, along with the Marques de Riscal winery. Expensive but worth it.
