“Stunning, simply stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

This is a beautiful hotel surrounded by well tended and relaxing gardens, overlooking a lovely lake. Lunch on the terrace is a must. The bar is well stocked with pretty much everything and the measures are generous. The September weather was perfect for relaxing.
NOTE: if you suffer from car-sickness plan your journey carefully. Most of the roads to get here are very twisty. There is a stunning view of the lake from one of the roads above.
This feels more like the real Spain compared with the coastal developments and is well worth a visit or a stay.

What a beautiful hotel and retaurant. I have eaten there now on 3 occassions and each time the service has been outstanding and the food has been excellent, but the menu could do with updating as it has been the same for quite a while now which is brilliant if you are maybe only visiting the once or twice. I have friends in the area and it would be nice to see something new, but please be assured it will not stop me booking again next time I am in Vinuela or at least coming for coffee and maybe just checking the menu !!

My Sister and I have just stayed at La Viñuela Hotel for 3 Days. it is quite the most stunning place we have seen in ages. this is my 3rd Visit.The Hotel is privately owned, and it shows ! the care and attention of the Staff is 5* one feels so at home here. The peace is amazing, we loved it.
Thank you to all the Staff who made our stay so wonderful.

Room Tip: It doesn't really matter as both sides of the Hotel have magnificent Views..lake or Mountains.

We stumbled upon this relatively new hotel last week, whilst tootling around the area...what a glorious spot.a beautiful building. We had lunch on the terrace...great service, lovely choice of food and good wine...will definitely go again-well worth the drive.

We visit the south of Spain because it has predictable sunny weather in September, something that is difficult to find this year in other European areas. We are no beach-type travelers. We enjoyed this hotel because it is in a nice setting (on the lake side), it offers all the services that you might expect from a 4-star hotel and it situated well to visit also some other interesting places. For those who also likes to visit the famous beaches, it is less than 30 minutes drive.

This hotel has a good balanced price/value ratio. Half board stay is recommended because the restaurant is good, the surplus fee is fair and you need a car to go to another place.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with lake view, the added value of this view -in the morning as well as in the evenin...

This hotel was a very nice find away from the coast with a wonderful view over the lake. we had a standard room and it was quite small but they do have larger rooms. we just had 3 days there after a week on the coast Try a cycle ride around the lake. But the star of the show is the kitchen
Dinner was always fantastic and great service

This is a lovely hotel set in a really beautiful rural location. The bathroom was fantastic with under floor heating, although it was hot in August when we visited it was nice to feel that warmth underfoot when entering bathroom. The view over the lake from our balcony was something else. The room was very clean and spacious and the third bed was a pull out chair, also comfy and big enough for an adult. There are two pools, one is open to the public, which we didn't use and the other pool is exclusively for guests which we did use and was lovely, plenty of sunbeds around it and as the hotel is small there were not many people using it. We drove out to a local village nearby to eat which again was lovely, up the mountain, great views. Had a small problem with the electricity in our room which was attended to really quickly and they said it was the first problem they had encountered this summer. Breakfast was also really good with plenty of choice. Mini bar in room was also reasonably priced. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this hotel.
