The shame of it was that we only stayed here for 1 night. We bought a package which included a wine tour, degustation menu at their Michelin Star restaurant and breakfast. Arriving at this Frank Gehry designed hotel was amazing - quite a few similarities to the Guggenheim in Bilbao but an awesome structure. Access to the main area of... More

We decided to come here rather than stay longer in Bilbao and it was certainly worth it. You should try to stay for at least two nights to be able to enjoy the area and get in the winery visit on site. It's breath taking driving up from the road to the hotel because it is in the middle of... More

We managed to get a suite here after having to change all our travel plans due to bad weather, the staff were fantastic, very helpful and knowledgable. The room was amazing, and had a great view. We did the wine tour, and this was probably one of the best we have had in Spain. The restaurant served one of the... More

We spent 2 nights at this hotel with some friends as part of an all adult group - children would have little to do here despite being welcomed.The building is amazing architecturally and an incredible view as you turn the corner of the road from Cenicero village near by. The building is not optimal for a hotel but the rooms... More

We spent the last two nights in this spectacular hotel. Our overall impression was mixed - we had a wonderful room in the main building, very spacious with a huge bathroom with the expected Starwood "heavenly beds" and soft pillows which are rare in Spanish hotels, even the five star ones. However the hotel has a sterile atmosphere and due... More

While the Gehry-designed building looks out-of-place in the middle of the La Rioja countryside, you appreciate the brilliance of the architect when you actually stay and live in the property. The colors, shapes and angles of the titanium and stainless steel plates and their supports are beautiful from all viewpoints. If you're lucky enough to stay in the Gehry building... More

We only went for lunch and a tour of the bodegas but really glad we did. Choice of two restaurants, expensive and very expensive !! Definitely worth it. Quite a gastronomic experience. Next year we're going to splash out and stay the night, to get the whole experience :)

Its as though an alien spacecraft has landed on the edge of Elciego amongst the vines! A truly stunning Building typical of Frank Gehry and it shines like a jewel in the beautiful spanish sun - we came across the cafeteria and shop initially and that in itself is a pleasure to walk round and have coffee in - and...

Some hotels claims they are luxury hotels, but this one really is. We were welcomed like celebrities, shown to our room and given a personal guided tour of it. Service was faultless and discreet. Quality of the furnishings was top of the range. Lucky enough to have a room in the main building desgined by Gehry and being over the... More

We were looking where to go over Easter Weekend and search Starwood Resorts. To our luck this masterpiece was shown to us and away we went. First the design of the hotel is pretty incredible. We used to live in Los Angeles and saw Disney Hall everyday so was a bit accustomed to the architecture. To see this in an... More
