We spent two nights in this former monastery, and liked it. It is just about 50 euros from Bilbao by taxi (but do not forget to take with you full address of the place, as you will hardly find a taxi driver in Bilbao to know where Gardexola is, and not many will be able to speak enough English to...

About 30kms south west of Bilbao, in a quiet valley. 1st. floor rooms were very pleasant, with small grilled windows. Large central area, and a large chapel. Pleasantly cool, and it was very hot outside on our visit. The 'gourmet' restaurant was not open during our visit, and the restaurant/bar that was available was very limited. Reception service was good,... More

The place has potential, is in a beautiful village and it is yet a pretty modern and new building and facilities. Unfortunately it is overpriced and because it is not busy the place lacks of vibrant character and looks more a plain retreat in a rural environment, far away of a 4/5 star hotel. The place has split personality, a... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

We expected something like a romantic retreat, but "Ibaia" is just a plain hotel. The pictures of a mansion, church, huge hall with fantastic chandelier are just good marketing. They do not convey the real atmosphere which is pretty dull. It's located in a rural area, some 20 km away from Bilbao. This was OK for us, because we used... More

From the website's photos I was expecting a small cosy hotel in a refurbished old manor house. This isn't exactly what you get, its more of a massive complex on top of a hill overlooking a small town. The hotel probably has over 100 rooms plus a church!, cafeteria, lounge, restaurant, breakfast area and more. Unfortunately the size gives it... More

This hotel meets the high standards of a 4 and even 5 star hotel. It has a nice gastronomic restaurant as well. Being the month of May when we stayed there, we had to share the hotel with a local family celebrating a first commune and this was little bit breaking the quite atmosphere.... Otherwise: just perfect!
