Fantastic place to stay and the views are amazing. No wifi is a great plus, stops you looking down and look up instead at the views and enjoy the peacefulness! There is a wonderful spa, best I've been too so far, and I've been to a few... Food and service was brilliant. Rooms and bathroom were great, nice space and... More

The photos do not do this justice! A refurbished monastery complete with cloisters, a woodland walk in the most stunning of location, a fabulous restaurant in an incredible room. Some of the roads to this hotel are "interesting" to say the least and there are some steep drops to contend with, but once you get there it is worthwhile. Bar... More

This is a bit of a trek to get to, but that's the way of monasteries I suppose. The building is fantastical; cloisters, halls, little reading rooms, the lot. And as a school trip to a monastery it would be a good day out. The restaurant was very nice with excellent service from a charming lady, and good food. The... More

We stayed here as part of a special Amigos de Parador deal. It was such a great price we couldn't resist as usually this is one of the more expensive paradors. As other reviews have mentioned, the former monastery has been beautifully restored with 3 cloisters all totally different in atmosphere. Right outside is some beautiful scenery with lovely walks...

This hotel is, more than anything else, all about the original monastery hosting it. Although some of the restorations may look questionable, one must keep in mind that 30 years ago this place was in ruin (the original internal facade for example is lost, and was replaced with glass in order to mirror the others). This said, the place is... More

Loved this hotel, superb room, great views, fabulous decor in and around including the museum and self guided tour of the Monastery and Chapel. This is not even expensive but superb value. Restaurant too was very good and good value considering the location and the great ambience of the dining hall. Would love to return anytime - make use of... More

Its sometimes great to have a historical monument close to your hotel, but at Sata Estevo you actually get to stay in one. The hotel is housed in a monastery thats been heavily restored. Most of the hotel is open to the public for visits, although it would take someone faily dedicated to make the trip up the mountain road... More

This Parador is way out in the middle of nowhere. Despite Brittany Ferries saying it was well signposted, it wasn't. It has a very interesting history and lots of people visit it for that reason. However (there always seems to be an 'however' in my reviews) to start with, you can get a map which directs you all over the... More

This is one of my favorite paradors ever! It's in a Benedictine Monastery that was rebuilt in the 12th century and has 3 amazing cloisters...we felt like we were lords of the mountain! The long, winding road up to it was well worth the drive to get to see and stay at this breath-taking place! Be sure to take the... More

The drive seems to take forever but it is worth it , the setting is stunning . Room had a great view and the silence save the birds was lovely . Took advantage of the spa which was excellent . The parador is furnished in a contemporary and classy style , a bold move from what you would usually find... More
