OK, we are in Mundaka, home of Basque surfing and a world famous left hander. And when in Mundaka, you must stay at Atalaya. Owned and operated by the same family for a generation - with friendly service and a central setting. Just a really nice, simple 3 star hotel that is clean, well presented with nice hard beds and...

If you want a safe place close to the surf this it. We had awesome room with a enclosed balcony. Bathroom room was clean with with a bar to hang my suit. Parking lot was gated which made me safe about the board. Staff super friendly. My wife was very pleased.

This was my first visit to Mundaka in 30 years, I remember it as being a quaint little town, great for surfers, but not much else! What a change! And right in the middle of it this wonderful little hotel. Clean, friendly, good price, modern facilities, off street parking, comfortable beds, I could go on. Recommended if you can get... More

Having read other customer reviews it was a no-brainer to book this place for our weekend break in Mundaka. It truly is a lovely hotel, very nice, clean, bright rooms, welcoming staff and in a great central location. We had a balcony that was overlooking the plaza and had sea views - it was perfect. Highly recommend this hotel.

The staff were delightful and the location could not be better. The rooms are a little run down but the bathrooms have clearly been replaced recently and the general vibe is of an old Victorian sea-side property. It just fits. Mundaka is idyllic and incredibly romantic. Highly recommended.

All of my expectations of service, quality, and value were exceeded by an incredible staff! I highly recommend a stay! Personal service at its finest! You feel more like family than a guest at this hotel, I didn't want to leave. Thank you for a great experience!!

I had heard only good things of this hotel, and every word of it was true! This was a real pearl - clean, pretty modern, cozy, very friendly and welcoming staff and great breakfast. Mundaka is a small village, but close enough to Bermeo where I was on business. I will certainly return to this hotel.

You arrive here through a maze of very narrow and rather dull streets to find a rather charming building with a warm welcome from the proprietor and his receptionist. Nice location overlooking the square where childen play - noisily until late a night! But only a stone's throw from the little working harbour and a couple of decent restaurants. Our... More
