“Delightful Lunch”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

It is perhaps fitting to include a review that covers one specific visit for lunch. It was a hot day - 40 degrees. The hotel offered several options from an interesting and varied menu that was served on the terrace and in the shade. The prices are remarkably competitive and the quality and presentation of the food was excellent. This was a very enjoyable lunch at the hottest time of the day, served with style and attention to detail. We shall certainly return and try the menu gastronomique.

My husband and I had dinner in this hotel 2 years ago and thought it would be a lovely place to stay if we ever back in the area. We only stayed one night but it was fantastic! We arrived at 1pm and were able to check into our room straight away. It was clean and comfortable with all important air con! We had a tasty lunch in the restaurant before making our way to the pool. Very relaxing and peaceful with a great view of the lake. Dinner in the evening was beautiful and the service was great. Lots of choice for breakfast too. We were lucky enough to have a late check out so enjoyed our last day by the pool. All in all, a fantastic stay in a beautiful hotel. We will definitely be back!

Stayed at this hotel a number of years ago and it has since been updated/extended.
The public areas are still generally the same.It is not cheap but the location is wonderful,overlooking Lake Vinuela. The restaurant is dear and has some unusual dishes.We last visited in February for a Saturday lunch and the restaurant was full.
Well worth a visit even for a drink for the view,tranquility and good atmosphere.

Room Tip: Corner Lake view with larger covered balcony.

We were trying to find another hotel where my daughter had made reservations, but ended up here instead. It was wonderful! The grounds were pristine, and the room was gorgeous. Although we were not on the lake view side, our view of the montains and villages was breathtaking also. We got a package with breakfast, and should have gotten one with dinner also, as there was nothing else open in the nearby village so we ended up eating at the restaurant both times. It was great! We hope to "get lost" there again sometime!

What a little gem to find in such an off beat location. We were lucky enough to be in room 216, a lovely suite looking over the lake and the mountains. The room was very large with a big terrace, large bathroom and great decor.
The hotel itself is very peaceful, with lovely gardens and nicely decorated public areas. The restaurant is also of very high quality with a shaded terrace area.

Room Tip: Definitely worth paying a little extra for a lake view (even though the mountains are also beautiful...

We visit this area every year and always include one or two visits to the hotel for a meal on the terrace restaurant. Last year we felt that the standard had slipped but still visited this year hoping for a return to the excellent standard it once was. Unfortunately the service was extremely poor and the food, especially the main course, distinctly average. The hotel is in a stunning location, but sadly the restaurant has lost our custom.

I had the opportunity stay at this hotel for two nights while visiting friends who have a holiday home in the area. A 45 minute pre-booked taxi (€65) from the airport brought me to this lovely hotel on Lake Vinuela. The hotel itself is beautifully designed and decorated. The views of the lake were simply stunning from the "selection" room. The room was clean and quiet. The bed was very comfortable and the linens and towels were soft and fresh. The room also included a nicely stocked mini bar. I was slightly disappointed with the soaps/lotions/shampoos--they were low quality and I think in such a nice hotel it would be nice to have more high end toiletries.

Breakfast that was in the cafe outside was good--all the basics that you expect in a standard continental. You were able to order various "egg" choices as well. Be mindful of the birds as they like to share your breakfast and tableware while eating.

I did eat in the restaurant for dinner which was very good.

All the grounds are lovely and well manicured. There are 2 pools on the property. One for hotel guest and another semi-public pool which people (locals) can pay to swim. That pool was very crowded and loud. Although I was not able to hear the public pool when in the hotel pool so no issues.

It is a bit out of the way but well worth the visit if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing vacation.
