“A place you will never forget in your lifetime”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

We stayed at Semaforo de Bares on May 2013. It is located in the top of Estaca de Bares overlooking the Rías de O Barqueiro and Ortigueira with an impressive view over the sea (where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Bay of Biscay) and the Rias. The views and sunset are impressive. There are many locations around including the Bares Lighthouse in the most northern tip of Spain and many beaches and cliffs of extraordinary beauty in the Comarca of Otegal. At the time of our visit all places were covered by flowers providing spectacular views.

The manager Mr Xavier was very kind and efficient and provided information about all attractions in the area. Our room was cozy and extremely clean and well kept. Wifi worked perfectly. Breakfast was excellent with a variety of meats, sausage, juices, fruits and cheeses.

If you like nature, tranquility and views this is the place to stay on. Photographers will be really busy. We highly recommend this small hotel and by sure we will be back if we have the opportunity.

We were looking for a quiet getaway in a remote location with decent views of the sea, and the Semaforo seemed a promising proposition. But everything about our stay exceeded our expectations. The location is simply stunning: our sea view was not just decent, but about 348 degrees, and the surrounding gardens - laid out in sympathy with the local geology and flora, and tended beautifully - provided all manner of additional vantage points. We enjoyed not just quiet, but complete peace - a very rare thing indeed. The hospitality was simply superlative: our hosts welcomed us with great warmth and generosity, accommodated our every request regarding meal times, etc., and served wonderful breakfasts and dinners - Galician specialties home-cooked with flair. We will be back soon. Please do not book this hotel if you do not plan to be quiet!

My wife and I stayed two nights (in early July) at this remote lighthouse-turned-hotel. We ate all our meals at their cozy restaurant. The food was better than that served at the vast majority of other hotel restaurants at which we ate on our trip, including one in Portugal that had been awarded a Michelin star and was at least twice as expensive. The service at this hotel was exceptional. The host, Javier, was delightfully hospitable, with a warm laugh that made the experience even more enjoyable. (And fortunately for us, he spoke fluent English.) The hike he recommended was absolutely MINDBLOWING, with some of the most gorgeous (and secluded) coastline I have ever seen in my entire life. The only way we could have possibly had a better experience is if we paid the extra cash (and made our reservation in advance enough) to book the "suite room" with the 360-degree panoramic views. Even their website doesn't do the views at this place justice. You must see them for yourself. To stay here is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Don't miss it.
