Our experience was with the wonderful Paradors of Spain. The Pousada lived up to to expectations. Arrival was seemless. The rooms and ensuites are clean and light with great views. The outdoor and indoor pools are good as are the sauna and steam room. The only issue there is the indoor does not open before 9am. The dinner and breakfast... More

This stunning resort is one of the most incredible places I have ever stayed at. I was here with my girlfriend for one night as part of a Spain-Portugal roadtrip. We arrived just before sunset and the manager went out of his way to make us feel welcome. We were given wine glasses for champagne we had brought and were... More

New building with a shared livinbg room very cosy and... More

Artfuly decorated cute Youth hostel. We were impressed at how the staff is just very helpful and always ready to take the extra mile to give advice and help. Super clean, functional and situated up the hill so you´ve got all the view of the beautiful Serra, and a sound of a nearby stream! Super cute! Very good price-quality value!... More

My girlfriend and I visited this Hostel in no man's land in February and we got pretty much everything we could have hoped for. The staff is friendly and more than willing to help you out or give any kind of information you might require. Do bear in mind that the Youth Hostel is segregated in both an old and... More

Good location via wonderful driving. Shower is small and getting cold soon. common kitchen is limited facility and poor breakfast. No shops for foods, u must buy at town. Bad wifi, i couldn't use at all. only a few people stay then despite high season. Hard to understand why here is high scored.
