We were lucky to stay at this beautiful hotel for my husband’s birthday treat. The hotel is approx 20 mins by taxi from the airport.
You feel like you have entered a luxurious Spa when you arrive at reception and we felt pampered throughout our stay. There are complimentary soft drinks, tea and coffee, biscuits and mixed nuts available which were much appreciated when we arrived at 11pm and we relaxed for an hour in the extremely comfortable Honesty Bar (reminds me of a classy Gentleman’s Club).
These complimentary Snacks are available 24/7 and croissants and apples are also provided early in the day. The continental breakfast in the bar is fresh and its fine ( fruit, ham, cheese, cereals, hard cold boiled eggs, bread, croissants and pastries) – but the staff are outstanding – so courteous, helpful and completely unobtrusive.
Same for reception staff they really are the jewel in this hotel’s crown. We used Bus Tuiristic hop on/off tour for two days sightseeing which is recommended; approx €33 per person for 2 days. The closest Bus Tuiristic stop to the hotel is in Sarria which is a15 minute walk away.
Hop on/off bus tours are an excellent way to get an overview of the city for first-timers like us. There are 3 routes (red, blue and green) and every route travels in only one direction in a huge loop so if you hop off at one point and hop back on you will always arrive at the next point on the map route and not back in the direction from whence you came.
Our room was huge and luxurious and tastefully decorated like the rest of the hotel in classicstyle. Husband was very impressed with the iPhone clock/radio/charging dock by bedside.
Pool and garden lovely to relax in just a pityits not open until 12pm. Finally our luggage was stored on our final day after checking out and was able to have shower in the most fantastic shower in the fitness room/gym befor travelling home that evening. Oh and room minibar is also complimentary which is very handy; bottled water and some soft drinks.
