Ollo is a tiny town among other tiny towns in the peaceful valley of Ollo. El Secreto de Ollo is a a tranquil, charming home with tasteful decor and caring and attentive owners. They have created a place of relaxation and character maintaining the natural beauty of the manor home with stone walls and carved wood beams.

Ollo is so small you can count the number of houses in the village if you bother to. And in this village lies this unsuspecting house which its true beauty meets you the minute you step in. The whole place is done up warm in a romantic way... Every corner you turn to, you see decorations and details... The room... More

We stayed at El Secreto for 2 nights in September. It is in a fabulous, secluded location in a very small farming community. The furnishing is very "shabby chic" with a unique style. Maria, the manageress, was very hospitable, we dined there both nights and were treated to fabulous local cuisine in a 5 course meal including wine! The surrounding... More

We stayed here for just one night during our honeymoon. It is very close to Pamplona, but a world away. The house has been restored with a lot of personal touches. We stayed in the El Secreto suite which is very large, and has a lovely, romantic feel. Beds were very comfy. We went on a great 2-3 hour hike... More

We stayed in Ollo in the summer of 2013 at the end of a trip down through France. The greeting we received from Arantza was like we were rwturning family rather than guests. The rooms were excellent being roomy and beautifully decorated, a really peaceful and relaxing place to stay. The views over the "hidden" valley just added to the... More

We enjoyed our stay here as much as everyone who wrote a rave review. Ollo is in a very small village with no other facilities so if you're not eating in (and why would you want to eat anywhere else) you will have quite a drive. It is also at the head of the valley so you will leave along... More

We spent 1 night in this hotel while we were visiting Pamplona and wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel is located in the tiny and quiet town of Ollo, about 20 minutes from Pamplona. So if you want to get away from the big city, but be nearby, this is the place for you. The hotel is a... More

Arantxa and her small team keep a beautiful house hotel in Ollo. Very eclectic but it all seems like a house more than a hotel. Don't miss the home cooked meals which were exceptional. The area is covered in walking tracks and the landscape is beautiful.

My husband and I spent just one night at El Secreto and it was perfect. Arantxa and Pablo were the best hosts, and we felt so welcomed. As soon as we came in, we knew we had chosen the right place to spend the night. El Secreto is modern yet classy, and it is decorated so tastefully that you feel... More

Hotel El Secreto, is a lovely old manor house, refurbished but still squeaky floorboards ! We stayed in a suite which was lovely and large, lovely big four poster bed, several sofas and a large wardrobe, no air con, bit warm. Dinner was served out in the small paved garden patio, no menu, so it was a surprise for each... More
