“Grand, pleasant, a good spot to stop and rest awhile.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

Hotel in the grand style, good accommodation good bedrooms and good food. a large swimming pool at the bottom of a large sloping lawn. Staff very attentive. slight drawback in the height of the summer is that the walking from the hotel is quite difficult and it is a 14km drive to Vic if you do not want to eat in the hotel. otherwise it is a lovely resting spot.

Room Tip: first floor front with balcony overlooking the lake.

Very nice hotel in fantastically calm and beautiful place. Great chance to relax and recover. Very big and nice room. Good breakfast and very good swimming pool. Wifi could be better, in room it was very poor, wifi was good only in lobby and restaurant. And the bed could be more comfortable. Anyway, I would come to this hotel again, because the place was wonderful!

The Parador itself is beautiful and set in a stunning location. The rooms were classic and understated with lovely views over the lake and hills. Breakfast was wonderful and plentiful and dinner was very nice. The restaurant staff were very helpful and worked incredibly hard to please everyone. The front of house staff were the only let down to our whole experience. We found them to be unhelpful. Be aware the advertised tennis court is uncurrently out of action and looks to have been that way for a long time!

This Parador is in a lovely quiet location at the end of a long road and overlooks a beautiful lake and the mountains. We were fortunate enough to be upgraded to a first floor room with a terrace overlooking the lake. The room was large, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and the staff friendly and courteous. There was a great choice of breakfast foods from a hot and cold buffet and also wines and cava too. We had dinner both nights and the set menu was impressive. The food was delicious and the portion sizes – although not huge – were filling and we didn’t need more. The waiters were all very diligent and friendly and made both nights a special occasion. There is a very good swimming pool in front of the hotel in its own grounds – with its own little house area which serves as a changing room. The poolgirl was very friendly and watched over me whilst I was in the pool. The lawns and gardens around the pool were beautifully maintained.
Tips – get down early for dinner if you want to get a table by the window with a view of the lake and mountains – they go very quickly!

Room Tip: Try and get a room with a terrace on the front overlooking the lake - the views are stunning!

Stayed for 2 nights in June. Lovely location (room with balcony overlooking the lake a big plus). Clean, comfortable and well-equipped rooms. Good restaurant and the usual excellent parador breakfast. Walk to the monastery made for a delightful morning. Staff were particularly deserving of praise - friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Rooms with balcony overlooking lake make the most of the location, but the main hotel terrace also o...

On First impressions, this Property looks good, but as one looks in depth at the whole spectrum of the layout, the facilities, the lift location and the position of the terrace one soon begins to realise that whoever designed it made several mistakes.

The main building is surrounded by a one way road so cars enter and park directly in front of the building, which also happens to be where the only external terrace is located. This means that whilst you are sipping a drink and admiring the views you may also watch fellow guests arriving and departing and manhandling their own luggage as the Hotel does not provide a Porter service.

The terrace itself is long and narrow and when busy, the one and only Barman has his work cut out running backwards and forwards. Also with this layout, when somebody starts smoking in the line of tables, everybody gets to enjoy the smoke as the wind blows along the terrace.

I would add that there is a 15% surcharge for Food and drinks taken on the Terrace. Of course, if you wish to avoid the smoke and save 15%, you may take your food and drinks in the Bar area. This area comprises cheap looking rectangular Kitchen Tables from the 1970's and a number of circular tables with strange semi circular chairs finished in a drab yellow beige colour which contrasts nicely with the beige and brown chequered floor tiling. The whole room is set of with some huge tubular lampshades which dangle from the ceiling.

The Bar area leads onto the main Dining room which is not too bad and we had no complaints about the food. On one evening we tried the tasting menu which had some interesting surprises. It would have been useful to have the English menu translated into English.

The Bedrooms are ok but nothing special. We had a four poster Bed. Yes you get four posts and a rectangular frame at the top. That is all you get !

The Hotel is understaffed but the staff seem to do their best. One friendly waiter even made a joke of the lack of staff insomuch as when a large coach party arrived he said he might possibly get a helper as he was serving the entire Restaurant on his own.

The corridor windows at the rear of the building have nice thick curtains which do a job in obscuring the view of the back road, dustbin storage area, ventilation ducting and a whole hosts of other delight. It is well worth a peep behind the curtains to see this view, although if you forget, you will see it all as you leave the property via the roadway which runs around the back.

The walk to the Monastary is not to be recommended unless you are a seasoned Hiker. It is worth a visit which is a plus even if you take a car to get there..

Had a lovely four night stay at the Parador Vic- Sau in August 2012. On arrival we were offered an upgrade to a beautiful room with a view! The terraced balcony was perfect for enjoying the panaramic view and enjoying both the early morning sun and the twinkling moonlight! The room was first class with an adjoining luxurious bathroom and toiletries.
Breakfasts were a delightful array of tastes catering for all visitors with good service. The evenings began following relaxing days swimming in the super pool and lounging in the garden area, with cocktails served on the outside terrace. The setting was so perfect we ate there on a well dressed table with an attentive server each evening.
The food was very good and we particularly enjoyed the tasting menu!
A very enjoyable stay. The hotel was easy to find yet delightfully isolated! The town of Vic is also worth a visit, great character.
Looking forward to the next time!

Room Tip: The Parador booking service is very good!
