We stayed for one night in the extraordinary room of Semaforo de Bares. It has windows on 5 of it's 6 sides and you have a beautiful 360-degree view. It is like a birds nest and we couldn't stop to look around in the nature.

We were ‘discovering ‘the Bares Peninsula, including the Semaforo Hotel, high above Porto de Bares when we made an enquiry as to availabilty in this highly sought –after hotel. Only one room was available (very small) and we thought long and hard about taking it. Any doubts did not last long and whilst exploring the nearby lighthouse, we decided the... More

We booked a meal here one evening on our holiday because we drove up earlier in the day and discovered the views were stunning. The food and service was excellent. If you can book a table around sunset it's well worth it!

The hotel is in a great (if there's no sea fog it can offer amazing views) spot at the tip of a peninsula, 5 minutes drive from the village of Porto de Bares (fantastic beach and a couple of nice cafes). We booked the 'superior standard room' which is the annexe, not the main building. Unfortunately these rooms have been... More

We stayed at Semaforo de Bares on May 2013. It is located in the top of Estaca de Bares overlooking the Rías de O Barqueiro and Ortigueira with an impressive view over the sea (where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Bay of Biscay) and the Rias. The views and sunset are impressive. There are many locations around including the Bares... More

We were looking for a quiet getaway in a remote location with decent views of the sea, and the Semaforo seemed a promising proposition. But everything about our stay exceeded our expectations. The location is simply stunning: our sea view was not just decent, but about 348 degrees, and the surrounding gardens - laid out in sympathy with the local... More

My wife and I stayed two nights (in early July) at this remote lighthouse-turned-hotel. We ate all our meals at their cozy restaurant. The food was better than that served at the vast majority of other hotel restaurants at which we ate on our trip, including one in Portugal that had been awarded a Michelin star and was at least...
