“Over Priced!!!!!”
Reviewed 5 July 2009

El Gordo is overpriced to an extend I have not come across ever before. We are a well travelled couple and have stayed in many places around South America as well as other parts of the world. The charge for the rooms compared to the product is out of this world. Service is unfriendly and inflexible. The prices of Food & Beverage is simply a joke compared to the other restaurants in this village. There are far better places to stay in when coming to Trancoso - Estrella d"Agua (right on the beach) is just one of them. Think twice before booking a non-refundable number of days in this place.
