This was our first time vacationing in Asturias. Overall it was a great experience and the Posada de Babel was one of the highlights of our trip. Considering the rates, the inn exceeded our expectations for this type of accomodation. The owners, Blanca and Lucas, are very warm and welcoming hosts and made us feel at home. They offer excellent value and good service.
We stayed 4 nights. The location is stunning, in a wooded village off the beaten path a few kilometers from Llanes and perfect for a vacationing couple in need of a break from the city. Like most of Asturias it is best to be traveling by car to get to this location and to get around the area.
The facilities are modern, well maintained, clean and comfortable. The main building houses the reception area, a large sitting room with large mountain view windows and the breakfast/dining room. Internet access was best in this building.
Our room was cozy and clean, a comfortable queen sized bed that could have had better pillows (minor issue), a large nook that is all windows great for soaking in the scenery and a large bathroom. Our room had no internet reception but we felt this was a minor issue easily remedied by going to the main building.
Breakfast is "continental" and more than adequate with a good selection of fruit, quality bread, cheese, yogurt, and ham (on our last day they served excellent "jamon serrano"). Standard coffee is filtered, but espresso, cafe "cortado",latte, etc are available on request.
We had dinner on site our first day. The meal was creative, fresh, delicious and very good value. That day the set menu consisted of good bread, an appetizer salad of greens, walnuts, anchovies, blue cheese and mango, a main course of "Bacalau" (Salt Cod) with a tomato and mushroom ragout and a dessert of poached figs and roasted sesame ice cream. There is a good selection of wines.
Overall we had a very good customer experience, considering accommodation rates our expectations were exceeded and we hope return to Posada de Babel very soon.
