Customer reviews

Charming hotel with comfortable modern rooms, good prices and very friendly, professional service. The Medieval town of Alquezar is simply a must-see. And the nature surrounding the area is amazing: turquoise river with white beaches, the crystal water winding down dramatic canyons, green lush vegetation, a nature reserve for all kinds of large birds (vultures, eagles...) which are perfectly visible. Take a long hike along the "Pasarelas" (special hanging tracks over the river Vero) or practice more daring "canyoning" going in and out of the water in one of the many rivers in the area. The location is a wonderful valley just below the Pyrenees. Close by is the wine growing area of Somontano so you can also do wine tasting activities. A place not to be missed!
