“Worth the detour indeed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

Walking the Santiago path, we had planned to stay in Navarette but we had to reconsider due to noisy village fiesta.Hence we decided to make it to Ventosa which was an extra 7km away. Let me tell the Hotel Las Aguedas there is indeed worth the 30km walk of this day. This place is really special.It is a tome of its own: incredibly kind welcome, you are less in an hotel than in a comfortable, stylish and refined mansion. The room is beautiful with brand new shower. The meal is home made, served in style. And the lady of the house is delighted to help
This place is an experience. Staying there is different indeed.
And sleeping easy in such a quiet village.
A place to come back to

Estimados Brianne y Garret, muchas gracias por sus elogiosas palabras y por el esfuerzo añadido de esos 7km para llegar hasta aquí. Ha sido un placer conocerles y compartir con ustedes esos buenos ratos de conversación. Espero que su libro sea un éxito y que nos avise cuando sea publicado, será un placer leerlo. Deseo que todo les haya ido muy bien y que nos guarden en el recuerdo a su paso por este pequeño pueblo de Ventosa. Les esperamos encantados si desean volver a La Rioja, y, como hemos quedado, tal vez podamos ir a visitarles en alguna ocasión. Les deseamos todo lo mejor, a ustedes y su familia. Hasta siempre!

I stayed at this hotel in May very early on my Camino walk. The results stayed with me for the whole trip. I met the lovliest two German women around the dinner table. I met them often as I continued on alone. The proprietors made sure we had everything. It was a great friendly dinner. The room was well appointed.She gave me good advice about care of my feet. I had blisters then but they soon healed and I never had another problem after my night here in Ventosa.

Gracias, muchísimas gracias padre Brian por sus maravillosas palabras y por haberse tomado la molestia de enviarme un correo y dejar aquí su opinión. Reproduzco uno de los comentarios más bonitos que me han llegado y que guardo con todo cariño "I want to tell you it was the best night I had during the entire Camino". Es un orgullo saber que nos lleva en el recuerdo en esta experiencia tan gratificante que es el Camino. Confío en tener la oportunidad de volver a verle, mientras tanto reciba nuestro agradecimiento y deseos de que todo le vaya bien. Hasta siempre desde este pequeño rincón de La Rioja.

My wife and I recently returned from 62 days in Spain, 43 walking the Camino. Of all the nights we spent in one type of accomodation or another, the night we spent here was the absolute best. Excellent facility, excellent host, excellent food, excellent care. Rocio met us at the door and immediately saw my wife was injured and in pain. She carried my wife's pack upstairs and offered to arrange for a doctor. Thankfully the injury was not that bad but the care and concern were wonderful. She made us a wonderful dinner of our choice. The hotel and our room were immaculate. What a wonderful experience, a wonderful place and wonderful people. Our highest recommendation for Camino walkers of anyone else who happens to find themself in Ventosa.

Room Tip: All of the rooms we saw were equally well appointed and clean as a pin.

A small hotel [4 rooms], with all the advantages of being such. We experienced perfectly attended rooms, clean, quite, in a renovated house. We had beautiful meals here on a long table onlooking a blue and very green patio. It made the perfect conditions to make acquaintances with other camino lucky travelers.
The lady of the house is a true hostess in the spiritual way. Caring, attentive, helpful, in the perfect of ways.
No wonder that as we parted I mindlessly forgot the room key in my pocket, which made a perfect excuse for us to come back and meet again two days later.
I hope to have many excuses to come back in the future!.

From all the experiences one collects on the Camino, this will register for a long time
The warmth of the host
The exceptional dinner-and-wine
A boutique experience for a B&B price
Best value
Will certainly be back next year en-route to our next section of the Camino

We booked this place a day ahead of time (a first) while hiking the arduous Camino De Santiago based on the existing glowing reviews. Firstly, to call it a hotel is a disservice. It is an experience. There are four (yes, four total) rooms on the second floor. If the rooms are not comfortable enough for your tastes, there is a "living room" down the short hall with comfy couches, books and just another place to peacefully lounge. This is even more noticeable when hiking the Camino with hundreds of new friends.

Dinner. Do not be a fool and pass up dinner here. You dine in their personal intimate dining room. Forget the crowds and mass meals. Let me sum it up by telling you that I arrived in Spain via a 15 day Holland America cruise ship experience. This diner beat anything on the cruise ship. It was elegant, but most importantly, it was profoundly delicious, from the complete salad to the yogurt desert.

If you are on the Camino, treat yourself! This is an oasis.

Room Tip: E-mail or call the owner. She is very responsive.

My husband and I were hiking the Camino and our stay at this hotel was a splurge, the first time we had not stayed in an albergue. We were greeted by Sra. Rocio, the owner, a gracious and kindly person who had herself walked the Camino. The hotel is only a year or two old and it is spotless. The bathroom in our room was not large but everything about it (towels, fixtures, etc.) was luxe. Our room was very quiet (the whole town is probably quiet) and the bed was very comfortable. However, the food was where Rocio really made her greatest impression on us. She advised us that she had fresh fish and asked how we wanted it cooked. The fish was perfectly cooked, served with vegetables, and when we were done, Rocio asked whether we wanted more of anything. The breakfast buffet the next morning was just like what is offered at a premium hotel: cheeses, different types of meat, fruit, good bread. For hungry peregrinos who had been hiking for more than two weeks, our night there was heavenly. Add in the graciousness of the proprietress and you have a perfect small hotel.

If you happen to be walking the Camino, treat yourself to a night in this wonderful property (it is about a block past the albergue and is marked, as I recall, only with the Spanish hotel sign (an "H" plus two stars). If you are visiting bodegas in this area, try this property. You will not be disappointed. The town itself did not seem to have much to offer. Rocio mentioned that most of her guests come to visit nearby bodegas or some architectural ruins in the area. So the 3 star rating of "location" is not reflective of the hotel.
