We stayed in this beautiful resort for only one night to break up a road trip between Madrid and Vigo. Our first impressions of the hotel where mixed. It was located in a beautiful area and is quite remote. The hotel seemed deserted, and it had a very eerie feel to it. When we pulled up outside the hotel we were quickly greeted by a member of staff who quickly helped us remove out luggage and checked us in.
They did not speak much English, but that was no issue. We were shown to the main lounge area to have a drink while they took our luggage to the room. There was a good selection of drinks and I thought it was quite reasonably priced. Once we were ready, we went to the room. The room was magnificent!! I have stayed in a lot of hotels across the globe, and this was the best room I have ever been in. The staff had heard us talking about ordering room service for dinner as we were tired, and had set up a platter of fresh fruit and cutlery ready for room service. The views from the floor to ceiling windows were magnificent. The food was excellent, the bed was excellent, the view was excellent, the atmosphere was excellent. All in all is was excellent. We never tried to the spa facilities, so cannot comment.
The next day, we had breakfast. The breakfast serviced was nothing short of epic. it consisted of five large plates with a variety of cold means (typical Spanish types), fresh fruit, fresh fish and fresh pastries. In addition to these, an egg menu was available. The waitress was very attentive to our needs. I don't think I have ever had such a pleasant breakfast.
I believe there was only one other couple at the hotel, and given the size of the resort, this made it feel a little deserted. However, this is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in, and we will be going back the next time we are in Spain. This is truly a hidden gem..
