Arrived in Sarria after 22km from Triacastela on the Camino. We were looking forward to a nice 3-star hotel after several barely 2-star stops after Ponferrada. Wow, what a disappointment from the moment we walked in. Our hotel voucher indicated half board, but confusingly also said breakfast included at the top. The front desk staff refused to believe that half board on the bottom of the page actually meant breakfast and dinner and kept referring to the breakfast included note at the top. I brought a separate dinner meal voucher down to the front desk after I had retrieved it from my suitcase and the clerk told me it wasn't her problem. I am dealing with my tour company on the voucher issue, but I have never dealt with such arrogance at a hotel in my life. The room is fine. The water coming from the taps is brown. I can't say anything about the meals yet, but I sure wouldn't stay here if I hadn't already paid for it months ago.
