When passing by on our journey to Portugal we always ensure we stay at Les Jardins de Bakea, having stayed and eaten in their restaurant on four occasions. The hotel has simple comfortable modern rooms. The restaurant is quite simply marvellous, surely a candidate for a Michelin star! Food, wine and service are all delightful as is breakfast. A very...

Not far from the motorway,(2 miles), and it's presence can still be felt, unfortunately. The hotel rooms are comfortable but not modern, which is not surprising as it is an old hotel. It would have been stunningly beautiful before the motorway was built. The restaurant is excellent but expensive. I only saw adults eating there, so don't know how kids...

We are back here again and as pleased as ever. We are always looking for somewhere else in the area, but I don't know why. Great room, great service, great food and a wonderful location. Even managed to get the 1966 armagnac for my wife's birthday. Hopefully I will be back again soon. I

This hotel was a real surprise as we hadn't been expecting much. However when we arrived we were very pleased with how delightful it is. The staff were very friendly and the setting and garden are very pleasant and peaceful. The rooms were fine but the best of the hotel are the public spaces. Dinner was extremely good - one...

The restaurant in this hotel is what you would expect of a good traditional establishment.The dishes are well executed ,the fish was very good but otherwise not memorable.The lady running the restaurant was welcoming and the young team did their best but lacked confidence.The setting is very pretty and I imagine eating on the terrace would be very pleasant.If you...

After a 6 Hour drive we were thrilled with our choice of jardins de bakea. The hotel was charming and the views are spectacular. Our room was clean and adequate but did need a update, but the view from our balcony made up for that. The gardens are beautifully kept and there is a terrace for a coffee or Pre...

Taken ill at the start of the GR10, I told my mates to carry on as I had to rest for a night (too much partying in Bilbao) & this hotel was nestled at the foot of the mountains. Right away, I received a warm welcome from the staff (1 of them had met me the day before in Le...

We stayed with our dog at Jardins de Bakea overnight on our way to Costa Blanca. The hotel is less than a mile off the motorway, very close to the border with Spain.

This is a splendid hotel right on the French-Spanish border in the small village of Biriatou. Family-owned and run by a couple (the Duvals) who both trained in London and speak English. Excellent dinners full of local produce are served. There is a nice terrace and garden looking toward the Pyrenees. Bedrooms are comfortable rather than luxurious. Plenty of parking...
