I stayed at the Gametxo with a friend for two nights in a twin-room without breakfast in early July. The hotel receptionist pretty much told us to not bother with the breakfast as it was an extra €10 or so and in their words, “it’s not worth the money”. Tip – buy some grocery beforehand if you’re staying for a few days. I must admit that I didn’t really investigate too closely but if you choose to stay for three nights or more, you get a certain discount.
The Gametxo is perched up on the hill overlooking the famous Laida and Laga windsurfing bays below and naturally, you should only bother with this hotel if you have a car – it’s nearly a 30-minute drive to the nearest motorway though there’s plenty of parking space available. The hotel’s pleasant and clean, staff helpful, there’s free wi-fi, TV and the shower’s excellent. There are plenty of plugs and sockets to charge the various electronics and lots of room for baggage. No fridge, however, in my room. My only problem is that there’s no air-con which means the windows had to be opened, which meant mosquitoes.
Pleasant hotel – and very popular. It was pretty much full when we stayed so book ahead.More
