“beautiful setting, and... that´s it.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2011

Stayed at Hotel Rebeco on a through-hike, for lack of a cheaper alternative. It is a lovely old mountain hotel in the spectacular rock-wall fastness of Fuente De, a town at the end of the road in the Picos de Europa.
Staff was cold and efficient, room clean and pleasant, but no extra efforts were made to make our stay memorable. Food in the dining room was tasty, but vastly overpriced: an average salad for 11 Euro?? Fuente De has few services, so I suppose you take what you can get... and pay through the nose for it. Next time I will stay in Espinama, a couple of km. farther down the mountain, with more services and reasonable prices.

Room Tip: End of the hallway, away from the stairs. First floor has nice terraces.

A character hotel with friendly family staff. A very relaxing time. Front rooms have an amazing view but the back are just overlooking trees so make sure you have the front and a balcony. Evening meals not particulary wonderful but alot of people came over from the Parador the only other option, to eat.

The best holiday for along time. A fantastic family run hotel with breathtaking views of the mountains.
If you like walking with breathtaking scenery this is the place to stay.
The hotel should be rated 3 or 4*. The staff are wonderful making you very welcome in a family atmosphere. We could not fault the holiday, will be back.
Thank you!!

As other reviews state a bit of a journey to reach but well worth the effort. Location spot on, easy walks to wherever you wanted to start the day's activities.The area has several trails for walkers. The cable car is the main attraction for the serious hardened walker as the tracks on the the mountain are numerous. The Hotel is very welcoming friendly & clean,food very good value.I would have no problem returning to the Rebeco again.

The service was excellent the staff were quiet to start with but became more communicative as the stay progressed.
The room was excellent, we had a view of the cable car and mountain from the balcony, this was a front room, I can't speak for the back rooms view. They were kept spotlessly clean. The corridors were decorated with needlepoint work by the staff to a very high standard.
The location was perfect for access to the cable car and so the mountain and there was an excellent road to other towns. The food was good with options including local dishes - in fact every night there were customers from the nearby paradore who said the food was better, and cheaper at the Rebeco. There were few cafe's nearby except at the foot and head of the cable car, but the drinks at the bar were reasonably priced and generous.
The whole experience was enjoyable, despite a National strike closing the cable car one day, but with your own transport there were some interesting villages and tourist facilities to visit. There appeared to be no local transport, but this could have been a reflection of the situation, but would have made some of the walking routes mor convenient.

just had a 4 night stay at the Rebeco hotel and we thouroughly enjoyed it. It is in a beautiful setting in the middle of the picos national park. The actual hotel has character with some rooms complete with balconies overlooking the Fuente de cable car and mountains on the opposite side of the valley. The rooms/hotel are very clean and tidy and the staff work very hard to provide an excellent service to customers. The evening meals are typical of the region and are superb at reasonable cost. ( in fact many customers from the Parador hotel opposite preferred to eat at the rebeco on an evening). If we had to find a criticism it would be that the breakfasts could be better. WARNING, DUE TO THE LOCATION IF YOU ARE NOT A WALKING ENTHUSIAST THIS AREA IS NOT FOR YOU.
Overall a very good hotel.

There are only 3 things in Fuente Dé: the Parador, the cable station and Hotel El Rebeco. Fuente Dé has breathtaking views over the mountains, and in the top cable station there are several paths than can be walked.

Nice looking 2 * mountain hotel, the rooms are basic but pleasant and very clean, and I was fortunate to get one with a wood balcony facing the mountains. Nice old-fashioned decoration.

Service is professional but not friendly at all. There are 2 ladies that seem not to enjoy their work. This is now not a “family run hotel”.

In the restaurant, the day menu is advertised (perhaps this is mandatory !?) but you are looked down if you chose it: you have to keep the forks between the starter and the main dish, and an orange was served as desert un-peeled.

Breakfast was disappointing, one piece of bread and 2 wrapped cakes. Endless tea or coffee ? Maybe some time ago, not now !
