We came here for a week 's stay, to relax, enjoy the massages and many other treatments, as well as the beautiful, idyllic countryside, where cows and goats look down at you from the hills above the paths.
The room was very good, not enormous but very acceptable and very clean, with a good sized flat screen TV. We were on half pension, the breakfasts were copious, and every single dish we had for dinner was superb, the chef is very good, the service friendly in a natural way, polite and efficient. The balneario offered great massages, thermal baths of all sorts and any other spa treatment imaginable. Most of the staff knew our names after the first day, a great sign of people who really care.
The Temple de Agua is an adjoining spa area with "circuits" including all sorts of water jets, hot and cold jacuzzi, three types of saunas, a very complete and modern installation, as the rest of the hotel and spa.
If I do not assign five stars it is because there is only one lift to the rooms and only one more to the spa area, involving a lot of waiting; the lighting in the nice dining room was far brighter than necessary, taking away any coziness; the receptionists/concierges were too often on the phone involving waits to talk with them and indicating a need for additional staff to handle the phone; and there was one unfriendly blond breakfast waitress ... But the rest of the staff, first class. The quality if the beds could have been better, but not bad.
We really enjoyed our break and will come back.
