My wife and I stayed at Marques de Riscal for a few nights in October. The hotel is visually spectacular - some of the most unique, sophisticated architectural elements I've ever encountered.
The rooms are small, so if you have several large bags, it can difficult to navigate around the room. That being said, the view, the incredible bed and the inspiring design more than offset any difficulties presented by the room size.
The spa is definitely worth the expense. Clean, modernist design.
The wine is excellent and the wine tour is fascinating. Seeing bottles of wine from the 19th century in the context of a modern winemaking facility was quite memorable.
The property has nice bikes that are free to use for riding around the property or adjacent towns.
The service at the hotel is great. We enjoyed interacting with everyone from the front desk to the wait staff in the restaurants.
The location is terrific. If you're into wine, the hotel is within 20 minutes from most of the top producers in the region.
