We stayed at the Baiona parador for one night, en route from Santiago to Portugal. The parador is spectacularly situated, on a promontory and surrounded on three sides by water.
We purchased our room for an offer price of EUR110, but were disappointed to be allocated a room without a sea view - one of the few, I imagine, in the hotel, although it was clearly less than full. The room itself, and the public spaces generally, were of high quality. The accommodation block consists of two floors of lengthy corridors which, despite the views and the regular seating spaces, still appeared somewhat soulless.
The walk around the hotel grounds was pleasant, despite the poor weather, but the removal of a corporate presentation was conducted with unnecessary noise and disturbed the location's tranquillity.
The more affordable of the parador's two restaurants, the 'La Pinta' wine bar, was closed as out of season. The main dining room was clearly aimed at expense accounts and, as we did not want to leave the hotel in our only evening there, we did without.
As anticipated, our experience was redeemed by the following morning's breakfast (included in the price) which was world-class.
