Very helpful and friendly staff - flexible facilities & nice room with balcony
too far from town
The hotel was on a busy road, the traffic seemed to go on well into the night. The evening meal was very basic.
Our stay as a family of 7 people, grandmother, parents and children was very enjoyable. The rooms were adequate, the pool and amenities enjoyable. Breakfast was good and proximity to the beach and town excellent with a car. Terrific value for the family rooms.
Very spacious, clean & well equipped Nothing
the stuff was helpfull, altough the Hotel Manager was Very very rude and unfriendly!!! The room was overpriced in comparison to its level.
Meals in the Restaurant on Sunday evening was dreadful. Monday morning breakfast very poor.
Beautiful location and facilities no
Very polite, attentive and informative staff; spacious room; rooms were cleaned well each day. Too close to the busy highway; very poor value for money; no double- glazing to block out the traffic noise; no air conditioning; too far from Llanes; tiny swimming pool!
Lovely setting in the mountains, modern rooms, good breakfast
Hotel is attractive regional design with clean modern rooms comfortable, well equipped with all amenities. Extremely good value with breakfast included. Poor sign-age. No hotel sign visible approaching from the east. Only a very small sign approaching from west. Therefore unnecessarily difficult to find hotel if unfamiliar with the area.
very clean and good quality accommodation at an attractive rate; staff pleasant and friendly - nothing not to like! dining room lacked atmosphere, but at the rate we had that was acceptable- food was of good quality and well prepared
I liked that we were close to wildlife and positioned in lush, scenic countryside. Close to Covadonga and close to Llanes and other coastal beaches and miradors (vistas). The food. First night's dinner was bland and dull. Breakfasts (included) were worse. Uninspiring.
Brand new Hotel. Opened August 2008. Nice buffet breakfast.
A good place place to stay, comfortable, good food. Unable to control the noisy air conditioning.
Great Hotel, huge room (triple), very good facilities and an excelent price.
very old fasion but very nice hotel , prime location near the mountain i like there everythink
Its location, at the end of a mountain road, surrounded by mountains. The room and indoor balcony with fabulous views.
location appearence from ouside not great - dated but fine inside
Excellent view over pastures and mountains. Large comfortable room.
The location of the hotel was excellent and staff very friendly
Affordable luxuary in a fantastic natural setting Waitress rushed us with our order for evening meal because we took a little time translating the menu and making our choice
I liked the terrific scenery and view from our hotel window. The room was very clean and beds comfortable THe reception staff were not welcoming. On arrival we were told the restaurant was fully booked but we could order in the bar. we waited one and a half hours for a roll, when it came half of it was frozen in the middle - my husbands was barely edible and then he had an upset stomach that night so we did not take breakfast instead we drove to Potes for breakfast
Very handy for cable car and walking up a dead end but beautifull valley in the Picos mountains. Nothing but nothing in the way of community, hotel is isolated (which for some may be a very good point).
the room was very clean and comfortable staff seemed uninterested, dinner menu was very expensive with no alternatives
Fantastic location for hikers.
Friendly staff, good value, clean and pleasant room, great architecture, location and town.
A nice welcome from the friendly and helpful reception staff. As always in this part of Spain, our smattering of Spanish made things easier. The room was quiet and spacious with a very nice bathroom. The dining room (the former convent chapel) is stunning although the dinner prices are steep. The buffet breakfast was very good.
Wonderful location, nice rooms and balcony overlooking a secondary surfing bay, if you get a front room as we did. Exceptionally good value with breakfast included in low rate. Satff were a bit off-hand maybe due to end of season tiredness
The location was convenient to the activities in Llanes. The room was clean, fairly large and comfortable with very good noise attenuation. Plumbing work on was being completed immediately under our room, which continued until we complained at 22:30. The hotel did not have a person on the desk when we wanted to checkout at 7:45, so we had to find someone in the restaurant area to help us.
Good central location in lively Spanish town sandwiched between the sea and the picos mountains
beautiful historic building,nice position,well kept decoration well below the standard of the building,bathroom without ventilation, tiny old television, small bathroom
Good, central location. Friendly staff. WIFI, free parking along side. Charming terrace. I got the impression the hotel is in the process of renovating its rooms. Ours was not renovated and hence did not seem as nice as the ones seen on various web sites. In which case 95 euros / night for a very ordinary room is too much to pay.
Enjoyed exploring the village (very easy as the hotel was central). Liked the historic features - eg dining room There was a lot of noisy talking outside in the street - far into the night. Probably rooms away from the main street would be better
The spacious room and quiet atmosphere.
On our 14-hotel tour France-Spain, this was one of the cheaper, but the best one. At low season (50€ for a room midweek) you get extremly good value for money. We found almost everything perfect or at least very good. For example beds top-class. (Some prefer softer, but not we.) Nice terrace outside the hotel. Good location in town. We were unlucky, and had dull view from our room. And bad weather. There are more charming places than Llanes.
superb location overlooking the bay Noy really, very good value for money
Location. Secure parking. Drifting off to sleep by the sound of the waves beneath our window.
Friendly, accommodating staff; awesome location overlooking ocean; clean, attractive room. No bad points--but we do wish breakfast would have been available at 8:00 or 8:30. Also, there was no way to ask for a twin-bedded room when we booked on line. Thankfully, the desk clerk was able to change us to a different room.
It's central position
The view from the room was exceptional.
Excellent location overlooking the beach - ask for a room with a view! When our luggage was lost by the airline the staff did everything possible to help us get it back - they made several phone calls on our behalf, even phoning ahead to our next hotel to explain our situation. The room was spacious and comfortable, although had fake furniture (pieces of furniture with no real drawers or cupboards). An old hotel, but in good condition and with a nice garden in the central courtyard.
The friendliness of staff , view from our room and the overall location to the beach,golf course and historical areas. Unfortunatley the hotel restaurant was closed for the winter.
Pleasant quiet room overlooking the cove.
the location was excellent, if a little noisy at times from street noise, and thew staff were very helpful
The room was great, everything was just as you would like, we didnt book breakfast but found many places to eat, the local town had plenty of bars and restaurants, a great location and of course the hotel is right on the beach, very clean, the two ladies on reception both spoke english and were really helpful as our motorcycle broke down in the middle of the picos to europa, the hotel has a computer, with unlimited use for guests which was great as our plans changed and I had to start cancelling bookings, the staff offered to help us with anything we needed, excellent underground secure parking. I would use this hotel again. Fantastic
The wonderful location right on the beach, the friendly staff, amply parking and good evening meal No hot breakfast
Excellent location, friendly staff, reasonably comfortable Food was tasteless, require tea / coffee making facility in rooms
The staff were excellent. The location suited us to perfection. The hotel was lovely, very comfortable and most unusual in design, each room was like a little chalet, very lovely and clean.The food was incredibly tasty and the waiting staff were very attentive. Altogether a great hotel and easy to find.
Location, location, location! This hotel has a fantastic location right on the beautiful beach at Playa de Barro. The restaurant serves excellent Spanish food and the half board option was a good choice as there wasn't really anywhere else to eat nearby. This is not an English speaking part of Spain so the hotel staff could not speak English, but you stay here and feel you have had a taste of the real Spain.
The location is superb with plenty of free carparking.The terrace bar serves a reasonable selection of drinks and snacks. The staff were helpful and tried hard despite limited English spoken The hotel is a little tired, particularly the bathrooms however, given the price this is perhaps a little overcritical.
Wonderful location, friendly staff nice room and bathroom excellent as are the views Food average to poor on the half board option. it was not an expensive addition and you could tell. either eat from the main menu or elsewhere
Excellent hotel suitable for access to the picos if you have a car.
The hotel was in an excellent position on the main road approx. 5 minute walk from centre of Potes. It is apparent that the hotel has been recently partially re-furbished. We stayed in a newly re-furbished room which was spotless,tastefully decorated,well equiped and had a very comfortable bed. Bathroom also newly re-furbished to a high standard. The receptionist. The receptionist and the receptionist. Ignorant,rude and un-helpfull young woman who had a phone permanantly glued to her ear in deep conversation with friends. So much so that she was unable to verbally welcome us on arrival and continued her rude conversation during the entire check in process. This ignorant behaviour was also noted whilst serving other guests within the hotel bar. We stayed at Valdecoro for two nights and without exception.....on each occassion we passed by reception she was there........phone to her ear.
The room and its view, the proximity to both town and country and the helpfulness of the staff. There were no tea/coffee facilities in the room.
clean and spacious room, very quiet, easy access to town and shops/restaurants room facilities a bit basic, e.g., no tea/coffee in room.
Nice, well furnished and spacious rooms with, in our case, a superb view of the mountains. We needed parking space for a trialer which the owners readily provided. The breakfasts weren't very exciting.
Good hotel location, at 5 minute walking distance from the village center and at 100 meter from a supermarket. The Hotel breakfast room veranda offers a nice view over the mountains. Rooms are pretty basic, spacious, but ok for the price. The corridors are nicely decorated, which made you expect just a little more of the rooms. Make sure you take a room at the back side of the hotel as the hotel is siutated along a buzy main road. It's a pitty that there's no garden or a place outside to sit around though.
In the hotel no body spoke english
Room seemed brand new, very modern and comfortable. Included breakfast was good (continental). Parking was easy. All for less than €60.00, excellent value for money.
Good location. Excellent rooms. A very well run hotel which is very easy to explore Potes.
Great rooms + connecting lounge with views on the top floor with space for 5 people. Close to potes. Next to the main road into Potes so some traffic noise
Warm and friendly welcome with attention to detail. Stunning views from bedroom.
A lovely rural hotel in a farming area, very friendly helpful owners. The Hotel had a truly relaxing and family feel. The sitting room area felt very homely and was full of books and magazines, and other things belonging to the family. Even though we spoke very little spanish all our needs were fulfilled. The mountain views from our bedroom balcony were stunning, and we loved the sound of the sheep with bells around their necks. Some late night Spanish arrivals were very noisy. This could happen anywhere.
Superb location and helpful staff.
The view from our room was stunning. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The sound proofing could be better.
The owners were delightful and made you feel at home, going out of their way to assist even down to lending you their own umbrellas when it rained. The breakfast was delicious with small little pancakes that melt in the mouth.The rooms were comfortable and led onto a balcony withh terrific views
idyllic rural setting; beautifully appointed old building, tastefully restored; balcony off room; mountains nearby the breakfast was only ok; something hot like bacon, or even cold meat or cheese would have been nice
wonderful views, staff incredibly helpful and friendly
The hotel was at a great location (at the Pixus de Europe), capacious, comfortable, well accessorized and beautiful rooms. Big parking next to the hotel. The staff did not speak English. We had difficult time finding the place because the name of the village on Booking site was of Camaleño and the Hotel was located 1Km from there (Look for little sign on the main road for San Pelayo)
Great balcony with wonderful views!
This is a very nice small hotel in one of the most beautiful surroundings imaginable. The views from the rooms and the yards is fabulous. Sorry we didn't allot more time for this stop.
value for money spa very expensive just for having a bath and children not allowed . In other spas they allow just a period of time (1or 2 hours per day)
Friendly staff, good location, excellent food, easy to find, close to the beach and mountains. Very cold in the spa!!!!!!!
It had a car park. This hotel is billed as 4 star. I am not sure how. The rooms are very small, furnishings basic and it is not airconditioned, so the windows had to remain open in summer and it was exceptionally noisy as we were near the service area, dogs barking etc. Billed as 4 star, really a budget business mans hotel and therefore very expensive.
Good sized rooms, modern fittings,Excellent car parking facility, easy walking distance from town centre. Charming staff and good breakfast choice catering for all tastes. No tea or coffee making facilities in the room
The breakfast was nice, and the hotel provided free Internet service. The property is very attractive, and on-premisis parking facilities are plentiful The room was right under the sloping roof, and an adult could not stand up straight in half its floor area. Insulation between rooms was not sufficient for what is described as luxury accommodation. We listened to people in the adjacent room cough and snore all night. The lack of built-in insulation between adjacent rooms is the reason we would not return.
This hotel is in a good position and easy to walk into llanes for varied and delicous meals. The hotel restaurant was empty presumably because it is vastly over priced and pretentious looking. breakfast was served in a very dull room with no windows. Why not serve it in their conservatory which has views of the mountains. We will be returning to the delightful modestly priced Prau Riu next time.
Location. The bedroom was very pleasent. Big and confortable bed. Bathroom with window. the breakfast was not appropriate to a 3 start hotel. Cleaning of the room was not very effective.
The location is ideal and you gave clear instructions on how to find it by road. There is ample parking nearby when the hotel car park is full. All staff friendly, helpful & courteous. Room facilities very good. It is a shame that the restaurant is closed for evening meals on Tuesdays. It would save your clients having to hunt around for an alternative restaurant. Most other restaurants in town also close on the same day.
Great location. Great value.
Able to keep bicycles in safe place
Very very helpful staff, great location.
The friendly staff and the relaxed atmosphere. 1. The fact that the other guests were not careful at all when closing the doors. It was very annoying. 2. We were supposed to pay €213, but we ended up paying €213,61. It is not a great difference but we cannot understand why that happened.
location of hotel is very good, relative to the town and to the Cares Gorge.
Fantastic location in the centre of Arenas. Lots of nice bars/restaurants around. 10 minutes drive to Poncebos for access to the Picos de europa national park and the stunning Cares gorge hike. Room was clean and comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend this hotel. The only drawback was that the room had no a/c and it was very hot in the middle of August!
Friendly helpful welcoming staff. Quiet hotel, comfortable serviceable rooms and nice bar. Nice clean swimming pool. Restaurant was not always open in evening although when it was the food was fine. Breakfast could be better
The views! Insufficient secure parking, room for 5 cars at the hotel and 30 cars in a field down by the river and the subsequent trek back to hotel.
The Posada was a little difficult to find but when we did the welcome was superb. The owner took us around the property and showed us the gym, spa etc which we did not realise they had. It was tremendous value and I would certainly reccommend it, and stay there again.
Very helpful staff, good location, clean rooms and breakfast choice.
The decor in our bedroom was rather an acquired taste with silver-coloured furniture and metal tulips as a bed head! The bed was very hard. As we were the only guests on our first night, we were asked to go and have breakfast in the restaurant cafe a few metres away. This was very basic, toast and coffee, with the locals smoking around us. The second night was better as there were other guests and the breakfast room in the hotel was open and there was more choice. Parking was along a fairly busy road.
We loved this hotel. The decor is inspired, the staff wonderful, the atmosphere excellent. Peaceful at night despite being just off the main Panes to Potes road. Good restaurant a few metres away. Oh! and excellent breakfast too. rather hot at night as there is no air conditioning but this was a very very minor problem.
We were made most welcome, the staff could not have done more to make our stay very enjoyable. fablous location for visiting teh Picos.
This is an absolutely magnificent hotel, superbly priced, delightfully staffed in one of the most beautiful parts of Spain. We were offered a choice of rooms, settling for what was effectively our opwn cavernous one bedroomed apartment with modern bathroom, spacious lounge and huge bedroom. The setting, just minutes drive, or a beautiful walk from the beatiful town of Potes is breathtakingly beautiful. Fuente De, effectively paradise on earth, with its cable car and stunning walks is also just a half hour drive away and absolutely unmissable. It is a family run business and betwseen them all, the family could not have been kinder and more helpful. I really can't think of anything negative to say about it. Nothing at all
Very nice parador Bedroom was very noisy from adjoining rooms.
We loved the location, the cleanliness of the hotel, the friendliness of the staff and the price were really competitive. Absolutely nothing. I could not find anything to fault this stablishment.
The staff were friendly and helpful . Location beautiful and ideal for easy access to both sea and mountains. Really enjoyed our stay . Lack of a suitable restaurant on site was a small down side but it is not far to town.
Staff made a real effort, we had no spanish No restaurant for evening dining was a bit of a drawback, it meant walking into the town 15 minnutes away each evening
The staffs friendliness and attentiveness were excellent. The standard and décor was very good also. An excellent hotel and staff, let down by very easily fixed things: no bar service, no kettle in the room, no food during the day, the Internet connection hardly worked, the swimming pool was shut mid-stay, and there wasn't a 'welcome guest' hotel manual to explain the hotels details, eg: meal times etc.
good location , near to the autoroute but close to the town. good facilities, very clean and very friendly staff.
Not your usual hotel, extremely large raised fireplace, probably fab when lighting in winter time. staff excellent, service excellent. Beautiful views from hotel rooms.
A lovely hotel with very friendly and helpful staff, in a really lovely (and convenient) location. The breakfast wasn't great for a 4 star hotel. It would have been nice to have had own control over the air conditioning in the room instead of having to ask at reception.
friendly receptionist Too far out from Center.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, no complaints at all. Private parking at the hotel was also great There was no restaurant and the choice of food in the cafetaria was minimal. A pity that breakfast was served in the basement. Not a single English channel was available on TV. Visiting Asturia or Galicia, you better brush up on your Spanish.
Pool and jacuzzi, lounge areas and breakfast. Limited food available throughout the day and evening.
The Hotel is 60mts from the main road that runs through the town of Llanes. The hotel is modern, clean. I was part of a group of 6 on motorcycles, we stayed for 3 nights, good parking on site. My room was booked as single for approx 40euros including breafast, the room was more than big enough, large bathroom as well. The staff were helpful, the breakfast had all of the usual items - bread, cerials, meats and cheeses, toast by request, fresh orange was brought to the table, everything else was buffet. As for the bar, a small beer was approximatly 1.8 euros, bottle of Red wine 10 euros. The location is great for the Picos, north coast, being in Llanes town provides lots of oppertunities for eating and drinking, and looking around the town. Some people have moaned about the room sizes, mine was a single (double bed) and was slightly smaller than a premier travel inn, other rooms did have balconys. The breakfast room is fairly small but there are other areas to eat in, aim for 09:00!
The hotel staff from booking in to booking provided an excellent service, polite, friendly and professional.
Great location near the centre of Llanes. Very close to Llanes beach and the harbour. Free parking.
Decent WIFI, central location, ample free parking Bathroom and other fixtures a bit dated
the situation of the hotel in the center of the city the noise of the elevator
Although I only stayed for one night while passing through llanes, and did not eat in the restaurant / cafe, I got the impression that the hotel was very pleasant. Lobby area spacious, reception staff friendly, clean throughout and well located. I was pleasantly suprised - I have paid more for a lot worse in the past - good value for money in my opinion, would certainly use again.
Excellent 3 star hotel, comfortable and clean rooms and staff were very helpful and friendly
This hotel is centrally situated in Llanes and is a good base for exploring the coast. In our case we just used it as an overnight stopover en route for the Picos De Europa. There were no sea views from the hotel
I would definitely recommend the Montemar. It is fairly priced, clean, comfortable and quiet while being centrally located for Llanes beaches, shops and restaurants. There is free parking on site. The staff are friendly, but basic Spanish is essential.
A good position in the centre, plenty of parking, an economically priced restuarant with excellent food and a substantial breakfast.Stunning views from our bedroom window. No heating in bedroom
Very accessable to the Picos mountains Very basic ammenities
Nice Location witin walking distance of Potes. A fair value for money hotel and would happily stay again.
friendly restaurant good but deathly quiet
Comfortable, extremely friendly and good value for money. Would definately stay at this hotel again.
relaxed atmosphere,good location easy to find.easy walk into potes where there is a large selection of restaurants.
Good location for exploring the Picos region. Buffet breakfast - excellent choice and lots of it. Pool was great (although a little cold for us feeble brits). Couldn't fault the cleanliness of the room. As it's situated on the main road, you do get a lot of traffic noise first thing in the morning with the lorries whizzing past - making you relucant to keep the windows open during the night.
Staff, food, town, freindly owners. road could be noisy if you left your windows open, air conditioning would help but not essential
An attractive hotel situated one mile from the centre of Potes. Stunning views of the Picos de Europa mountains. Large car park, two restaurant areas serving very good food, including the table de hote menu which is what you get if you book half board, otherwise there is a more extensive a la carte menu. There was a wedding reception taking place whilst we were there which is a good indicator of its reputation. There is no nightlife in the immediate vicinity if that's important to you (it wasn't to us).
Excellent location and comfortable, friendly staff
I loved the character of the hotel as it did not have the "part of a hotel chain" feel. The views from the front of it and from the rooms at the front of the hotel are fabulous. The location was excellent; in the country side but 1km from Potes (walking distance). There is a small outdoor pool which is lovely to cool down in. The food was good and the staff were lovely also. I would stay here again. Breakfast was not served until 8.30 AM
Staff was very helpful suggesting things to do in arae. Room was comfortable, clean,
This is a very nice hotel situated in between the costline and the Picos de Europa. The staf is very friendly and to the point. The room was nice and clean and very comfortable.
Great family run biz with great pride and service to their guests. Very helpful in every way with my travel needs. Rooms were spotless and new with upscale bathroom and furnishings. Many homemade foods at breakfast.. The surrounding area has incredible mountain hiking and secluded beaches. Lovely spot Indiana Golf- thanks for your service. Staff spoke English well, too. Not really..it is not in a secluded area but accesible from the main road if that us a concern for others
Excellent hotel, lovely rooms kept immaculately clean.Family run. Staff could not have been more helpful. Excellent breakfast. would definitely return again. Road facing rooms required window to be shut at night because of traffic noise.
A new hotel currently on the main road although well insulated from noise. The new motorway will be completed next year and it will then be a much quiter area.It is family run and they and staff are delightful and most helpful. Ample free parking. Good breakfasts - buffet - with hot dishes freshly cooked to order. No dinner available but plenty of restaurants in nearby Llanes(Yan-es). treat hotel as 4 star superior B&B. Only 14 rooms We had a delightful suite but pointed out to management that lighting in lounge area was insufficient. No English channel on TV. All other guset reviews in Spanish so cannot comment. We were only English there but Ivan the son speaks good English.
the confort of the room and the surroundings
Location in the center of the Picos . Near to walks. The hotel itself looked beautiful beneath the mountains with a stream rushing past. I read the guest comments and a few mentioned the quality of the food and that it was good value. This was one of the main reasons I booked the room .Although it was only mid September the dining room was closed. A great disapointment!
Pretty hotel on the outskirts of the village. All restaurants are a drive away. Lovely traditional Spanish breakfast.
Location for walking in Picos National Park, really nice room and building.
See previous e-mail sent yesterday See previous e-mail sent yesterday
excellent staff, parking and internet cold in our room, poor lighting for reading.
