    The room and bathroom were dated, no hairdryer. Breakfast was too expensive on top of the room rate. You can get better value for money staying inland. The hotel does not provide evening meals, so you have to travel a few miles to eat, because of the steep incline the hotel is on and the distance to the restaurant it would be unwise to walk, unless you were very fit. We found the nearest supermarket 20 min drive away, couldn’t find a local shop, so plan ahead and take provisions with you.

    The views from the hotel terrace were great and the room was a decent size, bed was comfortable and the mountain view was pleasant. The lady on the desk was very pleasant and friendly. There were tables and chairs outside so you could enjoy the view and the grounds were well kept, great big car park. The hotel is signposted from the road and we found it easy to locate. The road is narrow and there is a steep hill to climb with bends so you have to have a car to get there. Great beaches nearby and if you like a view, you will love what this hotel offers. Lovely area to explore and there is a little ferry just for people to take you across the river.

    There was no on-site restaurant though there were plenty of excellent eating places just a short drive away.

    The best part of the hotel was its location, overlooking an estuary and looking along the coast. The staff were friendly and helpful. On site parking was excellent and more than adequate and the grounds overlooked incredible views along the stunning coastline. This Basque area of Spain has some of the best scenery in the world.

    The address of the hotel takes you around to a small village that when you put it into your GPS takes you on a windy road. After we finally found it, there was a much quicker way to get there. Don't miss the sign off the small coastal highway!!!

    The location of the hotel is up on the cliffside overlooking the Atlantic. We had a view room, looking out over a broad patio and the sea.

    The breakfast and dining room. The fact that although very isolated no evening meal was available on site this was not mentioned in any literature. The address is given as Ibarrangelu it is miles from Iberrangelu. Detailed instructions should be given stating how to find the place.

    The location as superb.

    It was fairly isolated, not a lot within walk. A ten minute car ride went to a lovely beach with lifeguards and a few restaurants.

    Lovely position with a vast view over the sea. We were offered a large villa rather than the three apartments we had booked, and that was really nice as we had room to be together. Bernard the owner? manager? was very helpful in telling us where to go and how to get there.

    Not able to climb stairs I was obligated to stay in a room on the ground floor that faced the rear. The airflow was poor and there were no fans. The initial roomI was give hadvavTrain good bed but the shower was inaccessible for me. They had my room changed and the second room had a great shower but the beds were tiny. I could not understand why they did not have the large bed? Other than that it is a very nice location with resturants around, like in Acorda.

    Nice location

    Location of hotel is amazing with excellent view. It is in the middle of green with view of Bay of Biscay. We really liked hotel but an emphasis on Imanuel, receptionist. We had perfect chatting time with this helpful, cultured, well educated guy, he explained to us many details about local culture without being tired of our never ending questions. Hope to come here for a longer time soon! Hasta luego.

    * Loud construction noise during the first day and early morning next day. For the price paid this is not acceptable. * Noise the second day due to an outside party (private group) we were not invited to. * General noise late at night when trying to sleep from the grounds and other rooms. * Very small balcony and dirty couch, which we have covered with an available blanket, which was also dirty. * No watercookers and very limitet cutlery (4 forks, 3 knives a couple of spoons), again I expected more given the price of the accommodation. * Room in the shower wasted by an unknown device (sort of a seat) we could not remove or fold.

    * Exquisite view of the sea from our balcony (making up for some of the downsides). * Sufficient space for two (three would also work, four is a crowd). * Friendly staff, quite helpful, although only one/two spoke English. * Great seats available on the grounds to relax and enjoy the view. * Nice location on top of a hill. * Good parking space and easy to find due to good signs on the road.
