“Well equipped self catering appartment in beautiful surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Our family stayed at Hostal Remona for 2 nights as part of our trip to Northern Spain in August 2012. I had booked it via the web (bookings.com) which was no problem. I then confirmed the availability of parking by email (given by bookings.com) which was very promptly dealt with. As mentioned by previous reviewers, there is no English spoken and hence some basic Spanish is an advantage. However, when we got there, parking was no problem anyway (the village car park is across the road and after 18.00 there were always places available - if not, there is parking appr. 200m up the road again on the right hand side).
We arrived at appr. 18.00 and asked for the key in the restaurant. Since it was very busy, it took some time to get organised. Unfortunately, the appartment was still being cleaned. However, when I asked about taking food out of the car and into the fridge / freezer, we were shown in and able to put all our stuff away whilst the cleaner finished (her German was excellent btw).
The kitchen was well equipped with a 4 ring hob, microwave, oven, fridge, freezer, toaster, washing machine etc. Basic cleaning materials were in the cupboards, but this did not include washing powder.
We had booked the 2 bed appartment but were given a 4 bed one with the proviso that we shouldn't use more than 2 bedrooms. Consequently, the place felt lovely and spacious with plenty of seating.
There is free Wifi in the appartments but you will need to ask for the code at the restaurant.
As this is self catering, we cooked ourself rather than use the restaurant. Most of the food we bought at the Lupa supermarket in Potes (on the main road as you come in from Unquera on the left hand side) which was open from 9.00 to 21.00 which although not a large supermarket nevertheless had a good selection. There is also a small corner shop across the road from the appartment which we used for lunch after our hike down from Fuente De.
I would definitely recommend this place if you are after self catering accommodation in the Picos. The location is particularly good if you are planning to up the cable car at Fuente De (5 minutes by car). We got there for just after 9.00 and managed to park and walk straight into the next cable car without any wait.

This little hotel has B&B rooms and apartments. Our apartment was spacious, well furnished and equipped. Couldn't ask for more. Owners very pleasant and helpful and were very patient with our limited Spanish.

We would highly recommend the apartments owned by, and situated just beside, the Hostal Remona. They are in a fantastic location in the middle of the beautiful, atmospheric old village with a stable with an old slate roof opposite and a hay loft and a handsome, ruined church on the other side of the road. Our apartment was excellent in every respect - nicely furnished. well-equiped, extremely comfortable and very good value. The hostal staff were extremely friendly. In addition, Espinama is a superb base for exploring the moutains, only 5 minutes by car from Fuente De.
