This hotel is incredible. Seriously world class luxury. Staff was wonderful and all the little details in the room went above and beyond. Toiletries were super high quality and loved the traditional pastries left in the room for turn-down. Could have been the best pastry we had while in San Sebastian. I want to visit again and again.

Fantastic View

The hotel and staff are amazing. Views unreal and food that is for foodies. One draw back and a major one is that this is a beach area resort that has no out door pool or deck area to sun in a bathing suit. Spa is amazing as well.
