We couldn't have been more pleased with our return visit to Villa de Abalos. We stayed for 4 nights, and then later in our trip came back for another 6 nights. The hotel is very comfortable, and served as a great base for exploring the wineries in the Rioja region. Jose Luis and Merche are attentive hosts and made our... More

This is a wonderful, family run hotel in a small friendly medieval village in La Rioja. It does not get much better than this. The owner is a passionate wine maker who produces very good wines. The small bar fills up with neighboring wine makers in the evening. His wife is an excellent chef who runs the hotel restaraunt. We... More

My husband and I loved this place so much we were reluctant to get the word out. Tiny hotel in a tiny village right in the heart of La Rioja, it was a perfect base for us to spend our days exploring the region. I don't know which surprise was more delightful: that the husband was an expert winemaker, or... More

We stayed here 2 nights ago and booked on reviews from tripadvisor but didn't know what to expect . This is in the Rioja wine region and the hotel bar had many of the local wines on offer.We had a wander around the narrow streets where there were many Bodegas and much history we returned to the walled garden at...

Spent the last two nights of our Spanish holiday here. Checked the visitors book and found we first stayed here in 2004 and have been back every year bar two. Since our last visit in 2011 - would have been here in 2012 but for the Brittany Ferries strike - Jose has added a wine bar to the hotel. They... More

We stayed here overnight as a family of 4 (2 adults & 2 children). The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean. The owners were friendly and very welcoming. They offered to do dinner earlier for us because of the children and then cooked them a lovely pasta dish that wasn't on the menu which more to their taste. Our food... More

The village is very pretty. The Hotel is immaculate. The rooms are absolutely lovely. The sitting area out the back of the villa is divine and we drank many of the owner's own wines while basking in the beautiful sunshine. The secure car parking is excellent. We only spent a night and had to get on the road early but... More

This was the second time we spent a night at Hotel Villa de Ábalos, the last time being four years ago. There have only been a few changes, and all for the better. Rooms are spotlessly clean and well organized. Spacious bathrooms have all the conveniences. The common areas upstairs and on the ground level are a good spot to... More

We spent 3 nights in this beautiful hotel in a quiet but ideal location for exploring this surprisingly beautiful region. The beautifully restored building of Villa de Abalos outside is impressive and full of character, only surpassed by the inside, which has been decorated to a very high standard and is adorned with art and crafts which are interesting and...

A lovely hotel with pleasant rooms set in a quiet village. However what spoilt the visit was the intransigence of the owner not to have dinner any earlier than 21.00. However to be fair I suppose that is our problem as it is the norm in Spain. However more and more hotels are becoming flexible about this and offering earlier... More
