    Would be nice to be able to get a snack at the hotel.

    Great location on the hill just a few minutes to access all of the beach areas. The apartment we had was ideal for us with plenty of room inside and out! Lekeitio is a great little town!

    Nothing! On a humorous level though, there was no surf at all during my 2 day stay (which is the actual reason for my travels!). Ended up staying 2 nights instead of the original 1 night stay!

    Obviously the position of the hotel is amazing. Very often hotels advertise 'double bed' which turns out to be 2 single beds. The huge double bed in my 'garden suite room' (which opened out onto the lawn and the view) was very comfortable. What made it even better was that this hotel uses doonas instead of blankets. This is way more comfortable and something I have used for many, many years. All freshly clean. For me (I have stayed in more than 10 hotels in the last 4 weeks) it felt more being in my own home! Even though it is up on a hill, it is an easy 5 walk down to the beaches. The other big plus is the easy (free) parking. Today at my next hotel I have to actually pay to park my car! And the staff......Both the ladies that assisted me were incredibly friendly and helpful. And they both had very good English speaking skills!

    Shower was a bit wonky. It was one that has multiple nozzles, but those apparently haven't worked in a long time. Main shower head works fine, though.

    Super friendly staff, fantastic view, very comfortable bed, very good coffee, delightfully quiet. While it appears the property is too far away from the beach or town to easily get there, there are walking paths that get you to either one in about 10 minutes. Super easy.

    The path from the village would benefit from some lighting, but we had a torch so it was fine. It would be nice if the breakfast was included in the price of the room, this would make it better value for money.

    The bed was extremely comfortable, the room was a really good size. The breakfast croissants were very tasty, freshly squeezed orange juice. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Great base for exploring the Basque coastline.

    Wonderful views overlooking the entire bay, truly welcoming staff (very helpful and with a big heart), I got upgraded and had a large apartment #1. It is peaceful, quiet and in the middle of nature with a vast eucalyptus trees forest nearby. Only 5 mins walk to town center (somewhat steep but quaint on way back). Free car park nearby. South and West facing, with terrace drenched in sun. A hidden gem.

    Our room, #11, was huge- really more like a 1-bedroom flat. The views from the room overlooking the beach and ocean from atop the hill were incredible. It was just a 10-15 walk into town or the beach, manageable for most (though perhaps not an elderly person). The free parking in the hotel's small lot was very convenient, and the room's kitchen (see photo below) was actually well-appointed (though we didn't use it). Altogether, while it wasn't the most luxurious hotel in the world, the simplicity and views were fabulous. We'd stay here 10 times out of 10 again if ever in Lekeitio again.

The place is better than the photos, view splendid, house tastefully restored, other guests pleasant. The lady who looks after the booking, breakfast and cleaning does an great job. Lekaitio is popular with local visitors from Bilbao and San Sebastien but less with international tourist. weather was good. We hired a car thinking we would explore more but didn't really need it during the week as the beach and local restaurants were enough. We enjoyed a night in Bilbao before arriving.

    Location just above nice beach and easy walk into town.
