“Five stars for the staff alone....”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

I don't know who owns this hotel but they should take notice of this.....whatever they pay each and every member of the staff, from all the receptionists to the wonderful blonde lady who cleans and the amazing staff in the restaurant, they should double their salary. I just spent a week here with my family and I could not imagine harder-working more pleasant staff. And boy, did they work hard. They did not stop from morning till night. I would return here, but only for the staff.

Room Tip: First floor, not second

We stayed lst june at this very nice hotel. The situation was good with a short wlk to the cliff top overlooking Suances Bay. Rooms and beds were comfortable, the food and choice of menu was good and reeasonably priced. A good centre for exploring the Green Spain coastline

great location, 5 minute walk to check out the surf at Los Locos. surrounded by lush, rolling green hills...cows.......views around every turn.......and the coastline is magnificent. the deck for dining, hanging out, and the pool area are both extremely pleasant. Breakfast is more than sufficient. If you need to speak English, Lorena is the only employee who can actually communicate in the language and she is friendly and efficient. You can also write her an email for any requests and she is very responsive. Negatives: there is no ventilation in the bathrooms, which requires no further explanation, nor in the entire hotel, which explains the musty smell throughout. The spa area is very nice, but with tepid water in the jacuzzis and tepid temperature in the turkish bath rendered the relaxation quotient to zero, as my muscles tightened and I was actually chilled by the experience. They told me the temperature (38° C) was 1° higher than normal. I did my best to cope with this by jumping into the chilly swimming pool outside and jumping back into the jacuzzi, the temperature differential favoring the perception of heat. we had planned on using the spa for the four days there and we did not think it was worth the additional 10€.

Room Tip: the street side rooms are quiet and we heard the backside rooms had mosquitoes.

We stayed here for 5 nights in June on a Brittany Ferries jaunt and were perfectly happy with all aspects of the hotel. It isn't 'grand luxe' but what do people expect from a 3 star hotel? The staff were all very pleasant and helpful and we had no language issues despite our poor Spanish.
The room was clean and kept so through our stay. Linen was changed frequently and towels when needed.
Reception staff were always cheerful and helpful, the restaurant staff attentive.
Food in the restaurant was good but excessive in quantity; it is based on local dishes and availability. We preferred the restaurant El Caserio 800 metres away near the lighthouse but that's pricey. Breakfast, however, we found very good with a wide range of fruits, breads and pastries available.
It was further away from the centre of Suances than we expected, some 2 km.

Just returned from three nights here. The first priority, I feel, is the urgent need for a plumber. The bathroom was a dated disaster, the electric hair drier being held together with sticking plaster, the shower being of uncertain vintage and which sprayed the whole of the bathroom rather than the person and there being no chains on the plugs for the bath, wash basin and bidet (ugh!) In the dining room, the food was just about adequate, but it lacked presentation. Is it a three-star hotel? Questionable.

We arrived a little later than expected after being taken out of our way by our sat-nav, very tired and in need of a drink! The receptionist was very pleasant, even though she didn't speak very much English - she tried her best!
Our room was large, pleasant and very clean. It had a really fresh smell, and everything was spotless. I noticed that the room was very well decorated and co-ordinated, with everything matching and nothing broken. That makes a refreshing change!
The surrounding countryside was wonderful, and a foal was born in the field opposite during our stay - perfect!!!!
The breakfast was lovely, and the dinner was unbelievable value! Even the Cava was only 9 Euros!
The staff were very friendly, especially with our two year old nephew who was on holiday with his parents in the same hotel.
All in all, I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The only downside was the last evening there was a group of French rugby players staying at the hotel who were extremely noisy - but this was more the fault of the adults who were supposed to be looking after them!!!

We spent a most enjoyable 2 day break at the Hotel Albatross, and we found everything was just perfect, and how the Hotel can provide such superb cuisine at only 12 Euros for a luxurious 3 course dinner is just amazing!
Somebody with excellant taste must be responsible for the decor, and excellant attention to detail in all aspects of the running of the Hotel.
We travel down to Portugal twice a year, via Plymouth/Santander Ferry, and, in future, there will only be one Hotel that we will be trying to book, and that is the Albatross @Suances!
Sincerely,
Marianna and Geoffrey Gush
