I have travelled extensively and have high standards for accommodations. Hotel Monasterio was one of the most beautiful, if not THE most beautiful, hotel I have ever stayed at. This property exudes atmosphere, being an old monastery that has been beautifully turned into a hotel. The hotel is perfectly located in the centre of town. The grounds, inner squares, fountains and gardens were pristine. The rooms were gorgeous, large, beautifully decorated in keeping with the ambience of the former monastery. The bed was luxurious and a delight to fall into at night. The buffet brunch was so beautifully displayed that I took a photo of it. The choices were numerous including options like gluten free products, four kinds of honey, smoked fish, many exotic fruits, breads and sweet buns,whipped cream cheese, etc. The staff were fabulous - accommodating, gracious and welcoming. We had supper in the 'opera restaurant' where we were treated to beautiful operatic solos and duets and delicious foods. Is it any wonder I was so reluctant to leave?? This is one hotel that shouldn't be missed!!
