Great hotel at an exceptional location. Because we were three we booked a junior suite which has two rooms with two bathrooms and a living room where an espresso machine was our salvation on the quest of a Cuban coffee. The best of the room were the views from every window, you could see the entire Basilica and the Santina cave from the room. Breakfast buffet was really good with variety and quality. Staff nice and professional. The proximity to the lakes allow you to wake up early and visit them before the entrance closes and the crowd arrives (Summer time). I really recommend Gran Pelayo Hotel.

Caution! Stayed 3 nights. Serious problem with mold, could feel the smell everywhere in the building. Bathroom almost impossible to visit. I hope that management will take care of this problem very soon.

Fascinating and interesting location and well worth a visit but do not expect 4 star facilities or service. Would be nice to have a pre dinner drink but bar does not open till 8.30pm as does the restaurant. At least there is a coffee shop that can be assessed from the first floor (which can also serve as an exit to the back of the hotel and a little bar up in the woods )

Yes, as many have indicated the hotel could benefit from some touches to improve the ambience however the staff in the restaurant especially Sarai were excellent as was the receptionist Vanesa. We arrived at 10:20 p.m. and still the service in the restaurant was warm and friendly. Saria served us with an ongoing smile and never made us feel rushed. Saria worked from early morning until the next evening still smiling and making everyone feel welcome. We did not make a reservation for the Saturday evening and were dissapointed however we received a call to our room to say there was a table. Once again excellent service and ongoing smile. Saria is the employee that every company would love to have. Vanesa at the desk was welcoming and informative. She answered our questions and helped us sort out our needs for the stay. All in all a great stay and only need some touches in the rooms.

To stay at The gran Hotel Pelayo was very disappointing. The hotel definitely needs a total refurbishment. The rooms and bathrooms are outdated and there is a big lack of maintenance. The hotel has a lack off management as well and is totally under-staffed The safe in the room was out of order, although we told the reception twice, nothing happened ! Outside the hotel next to the entrance are some chairs and tables - No service or what so ever. The cafeteria on the first floor closes at 19:00 h. The bar on the Entrance floor, although the doors are always open, start service at 20:30 h. So basically from 19:00 - 20:30 h. you can not even order a water in this hotel. During the evening there is no staff in the bar and the receptionist services the bar, which is ok but it depends who is in the reception. One of them is not service minded at all and you could probably die before she would serve you a water. The location is actually the best asset of this hotel, although only for 1 night , because there is nothing to do in the evenings. If you want to visit this beautiful area more days, it is better to stay close by in the village of Cangas de Ons. The beds are hard and are queen-size, at least in the junior suite, The amenities are cheap and we had to share 1 little shampoo the two of us ! We asked for more, but there ws none at the first night. This hotel is definitely not a 4 star hotel. It should have been taken 2 stars away !
