What a magical stay at this very special place. I hated leaving. These folks know how to take care of their guests. Great reception and check in (Pedro was very informative and had a great attitude). Enjoyed almost every amenity the hotel has to offer. Great indoor pool, sunning deck and spa. The hotel has great dining options! Also, enjoyed... More

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

We splashed out to have one night here as a treat while on our adventure. It was breathtakingly beautiful setting and surroundings and a gorgeous huge room with huge marble bathroom. 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

We stopped off for 4 days driving from Madrid up to San Sebastián . The main draw is the amazing design and the wine is not bad either! 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.

We only stayed for one night but enjoyed an afternoon on the terrace with a drink and a snack followed by an excellent dinner ending with coffee and brandy in the bar. Next morning we took the winery tour after breakfast ( no charge)before moving on. Marques de Riscal is a favourite wine of ours and we tried some bottles... More

We were on our self-planned trip through Spain, where a lot of the overnight stays were paid with hotel points. Hotel Marques de Riscal was definitely a gem in terms of point redemption/value/experience. A bit of history on this place. El Ciego wasn't even on the touristy map before this hotel was built. It all started in the early 2000... More
