La Posada de Cucayo has been by far the best hotel experience that I have had in my seven months of traveling throughout Spain! From the minute we arrived, greeted by smiles and a tour of the hotel, to the moment we left, parting ways with hugs and photos of us with the staff...our stay here was a truly wonderful experience! It is run by 4 sisters and their brother, with their adorable Spanish mother as a common visitor as she lives next door. The hotel includes a bar, dinning area, a large common living room, a grassy area with table and many comfortable chairs that overlooks the breathtaking mountains, and a ping-pong table. Although the dinning area in the hotel is the only available place to eat in the town, it stands strong on it's own. The food we ate was exceptional and all home made by the sisters. They have a standard menu as well as two or three specials each day. Each morning we had a delicious breakfast that was included with the room of different kinds of breads, homemade jam, coffee and orange juice. I would suggest ordering an egg or two to go along with the meal, as they are as fresh as you can get since they were laid the day before.
The room we had was spacious and comfortable. It consisted of a living area with two bedrooms off each side, both with there own bathrooms. We had french doors that opened up to the grassy area outside, and even when closed, provided us with a beautiful view. The rooms are incredibly clean from the beginning, as well as cleaned each day, providing you with towels, bathroom toiletries and the most cosy throw blankets in the world!
The part that made our stay here so special was the family that runs the hotel. All of the staff was so kind to us, even with our many questions and special requests for the children I am traveling with. They went out of there way to make sure the children had a dinner that they would enjoy, even to the point of sharing a portion of the food they made for themselves for dinner. They were also kind enough to come up with activities for the children to participate in with the farm animals belonging to the family. They were able to collect the eggs, feed the chickens and geese, hold the 4-day old baby chicks, and even take a ride up the mountain to visit the cows.
When the day came to move on to the next city, it was the first time in my travels that I was truly sad to leave. If I ever return to Spain in the future in need of a quiet mountain town vacation, I will absolutely be returning to La Posada de Cucayo!
