We spent a very happy long weekend at La Hostería, Cariló in August 2010.
We are a family with two young children (2 yrs and 1 yr). We wanted something that would be child-friendly but also offer us the chance to relax. Some friends had recommended this place. La Hostería worked perfectly for what we needed.
We particularly liked:
- the friendly staff. It is a medium-sized hotel, but had a family-run feel.
- the room. Good size. We had a duplex, meaning a king size for us and singles upstairs for the children, both en suite, both with small balconies. Nicely decorated - good combination of modern (TV, DVD with about 1500 films to choose from) and homely. Very clean.
- the location. Convenient for the beach (5 min walk) and the village (10 min walk).
- the restaurant. Surprisingly good.
Nice to have the option of the spa. And it's kid-friendly until 6 pm (which is a bit of a mixed blessing!). It's pretty small though, so when it's cold outside (we were there over a winter weekend) it seems to get pretty busy. I imagine that's less of an issue in summer though, since they have a small outside pool too and the beach is close by.
There were all sorts of activities available for adults and children alike, despite it being mid winter. We didn't have time to participate, but the programme sounded fun.
There was a small (though relatively unexciting) playground for the kids.
Overall, very glad to have visited - both La Hostería and Cariló (another pleasant surprise). We'd definitely recommend it to friends, and will probably go back ourselves.
