“Cosy country house feel in beautiful mountain setting”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

A small modern parador in a beautiful mountain setting, the cosy interiors belie the rather modern architecture on the outside. Cosy, comfortable rooms and public areas, and good food, make this an excellent place to stay in the beautiful and surprisingly rugged Picos de Europa.

This is the best place to stay if you want a calm and natural environment in the Parque Nacional Picos de Europa, at least in the part located in Cantabria, in the local area named Liébana. It is also the most convenient place to stay if you want to take in the morning the Cable car to the top of the surrounding mountains, which is a must. However, the high standards of this hotel, as well as other hotels of the "Parador Nacional" chain, have clearly declined in the last five years or so. It is painful to see the waiters overworked and stressed because they are too few to attend the restaurant when it is full. As a result the service is slow and they make mistakes, and o. The menu is also not as varied and attractive as it was in the all good times, and some dishes are not really served as explained in the menu.

Room Tip: Ask for one facing the mountains.

Estimados clientes:

En primer lugar le agradecemos que comparta la experiencia de su estancia en el Parador de Fuente Dé. Lamentamos si ha tenido que esperar para la cena, pero agosto es el mes de mayor actividad en este Parador de 77 habitaciones y tal vez algún día el servicio no hay sido lo suficientemente ágil como hubiésemos deseado.

Trasladaré sus comentarios al resto de personal, y esperamos verle de nuevo en nuestro Parador.

Location, location, LOCATION! Man, is this place epically situated at the base of some very precipitously majestic rock faces?! WHY YES IT IS & I LOVED IT! I could just stare out the window & walk around the grounds all day. The actual hotel was great, in typical Parador fashion. Big room & bathroom, nice indoor patio. Restaurant was good but, yes, pricey. The hotel room was however very affordable, great price. The front desk gives a 10% discount on the Cable car tickets if you buy them there.

There is not much to Fuente De other than the Cable car (which you must do if you stay here or close, it's super amazing up there, go in the afternoon though, morning through lunch was very crowded with tour buses) & amazing mountain views but that alone was worth it for me for a couple nights. The Picos are amazing, extremely peaceful. Potes is a nice little town about 30-40 min by car with lots of restaurants & shops.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view! The eastern wing was very quiet & secluded if you're into that.

The drive into and out of the Picos Mountains was one of the main highlights of our Northern Spain tour. Fuente De parador is located in a beautiful location more deeply into the mountains than anywhere else. The cable car, 100 metres from the parador, ascends several thousand feet into the upland mountains areas. Views are fantastic and if well equipped with boots etc, there are some splendid walks. Watch for the Gorilla on the way down!!
Our welcome at the Hostal was warm and very helpful. Our rooms were clean and functional with an enclosed balcony to take advantage of the views in all weathers. The food was straightforward and enjoyable with a broad selection of wines available.We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. A visit to Potes nearby was interesting for admiring the old buildings and a very good tapas lunch.

Room Tip: Little to choose between rooms. The main block is probably more convenient.

Second visit here with everything up to Parador standards making our stay very comfortable and interesting. This Parador is very convenient for the cable car and for delightful walks in the area. Clean, good sized rooms, delightful staff.

This Parador is right next to the cable car with absolutely stunning views from all the rooms. Even though we were there at the height of the holiday season in Spain, the crowds were not bad compared to the US national parks. The rooms are spartan but clean and comfortable. The breakfast was plentiful with eggs, sausage, fruits and breads. We enjoyed dinners there both nights and they were truly delicious. All four of us were raving about our dishes. Be sure and try the local dessert. Very good wireless right in your room which we found is the exception in the north of Spain. Lovely drive to get here but plan on lots of twisty roads. The cable car ride was excellent and the hikes above the tree line were stunning. We only hiked for a few hours before returning via cable car as we were unable to find hiking maps of any kind!

Really lovely location at the foot of the cable car. We had a great view of the mountains. Our room was a nice size with a balcony overlooking the mountain. The only problem was that it was on the 2nd floor, with only a lift to the first floor, so getting the suitcases up and down the stairs was difficult. The dinner was good and the breakfast was adequate but not as good as some Paradors. The staff were friendly and helpful. An enjoyable stay. Would recommend it but make sure you ask for a first floor room if you have a lot of luggage and sixty plus like us.
