The restaurant's Spanish cuisine and their service at dinner were quite enjoyable and authentic.

At first we've only booked 2 nights in this hotel, but we liked so much that we extended our stay. The hotel it's easy to find if you follow the directions mentioned on booking.com: as it is in a rural area, it's not advisable to use GPS. So, briefly, take the road A-2233 and you'll find signs for the hotel... More

I did not stay at this hotel. It is in a pine forest above the sea .... very rural. I went with friends who wanted to show us a "surprise". We walked through the lobby and out into an amazing structure... an ancient pigeon coop! Sounds crazy but it as really a beautiful sight to see!
