Service is great friendly staff always happy to help, they Meade great suggestions for places to eat around. They do a tour of the winery worth doing it. Is... More

A very special building by the same architect as The Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. The rooms are very spacious and delicate. When staying at this hotel one have to visit the bodega and also have a dinner with the set menu at their main restaurant. Then it really will be a time to remember!

We stayed here for New Year's Eve and had a great time. The hotel is stunning. It's only 43 rooms, but our room was enormous, not like a cramped boutique urban hotel at all. The staff were excellent. We had NYE dinner here and it was really great - we usually avoid dining out on major holidays because the food... More

We arrived late at night (about 9.30pm) & even then the wonderful concoction of titanium swirls that Frank Gehry has adorned the building with looked fabulous. The young woman on reception was lovely & as we would discover during our 3 night stay this was the norm. All the staff were fabulous but the two women who we saw in... More

We've been today at the spa for massage and it will be the first and last time. It was full of noisy and disturbing children and no one warned them. Plus, there were people with dirty shoes walking around the spa. What we experienced is not a 5 star hotel.

Dear mdlmp, Thank you very much for taking part of your time to share your comments and provide valuable feedback for us. I was concerned to read of your experiences in the spa during your time here and the negative impression this left with you. We do try to get it right 100% of the time, but clearly, on this... More

You know you’re in for a good stay here before you step through the door. The incredible architecture – the hotel was designed by Guggenheim Museum architect Frank Gehry – sets things up, with its dramatic metallic facade, all swoops and swirls that seem to float unsupported. It was a shame then that I knew I’d be here for just... More

Have had an amazing stay at this gorgeous hotel! From arrival, the staff were all extremely welcoming, friendly and professional. We took a wine tour around the winery on site and it was incredibly informative. Not to mention the tasting at the end!! The room was spotless and enormous! The complimentary wine was a nice touch. Breakfast was incredible, again... More

When we arrived at El Ciego we were taken aback by the sight of thei hotel. Quite frankly, it seemed incongruous. To be fair though it grows on you and we came to appreciate and understand what Gehry wanted to achieve. Our four day stay was lovely. Service was terrific, in particular the front of house staff, porters and the... More

The hotel is visually exciting and beautiful. It makes a memorable impression as you approach from the road from the North. And a massive impression up close. Yes, the rooms in the annex can be bigger and have a more expansive view, but the quirkiness of the the rooms in the main building are just so invitingly nice. The bed... More
