"The best in Spain"
Definitely the best hotel in Spain. A true 5 star, just by the water. The rooms spacious and comfortable with every detail elaborated. Staff attendant and professional. Beautiful patio/garden to have a drink or snack. Perfectly located at the centre. Business space at the lobby with more than enough computers and printing service. Nothing to criticize, it is just perfect.
"Fantastic ! "
My husband and I spent a lovely weekend in this hotel as part of my birthday celebrations . It was a perfect . The staff were so pleasant and helpful especially the receptionist who very kindly showed us all the best pintxo bars on a map . We had a suite that was spacious , luxurious and very tastefully decorated . The bed was very comfortable . The hotel is in a perfect location for exploring the old town and the beach . I would love to go back to this hotel some day .
We have just returned from a seven night stay at the Maria Christina, there's a lot to love about the hotel but also some points that let it down as a five star establishment. The building itself is beautiful on the the outside and the interior is also outstanding, the decor is a great blend of traditional with modern touches in there as well. Our bedroom (3rd floor, river facing, deluxe), was large and on the whole well appointed. The bed was just enormous but sadly not that comfortable, we woke up each morning with sore backs as the mattress was a bit too soft. No tea and coffee making facilities, room service for one tea and one coffee......€17, a bit steep. The heating controls do not give you much scope for warming the room up, it will only allow you to raise the temperature by 3 degrees. The TV has a very limited choice of channels for non Spanish speakers, there no iPod dock or music streaming facilities. The bathroom was huge and beautiful with great facilities and quality Elemis products. We had Afternoon Tea one day, the menu states that you are to get, sandwiches, pastries, cakes, scones, jam and cream. The sandwiches were tiny and only four of them between two of us, a few macaroons, a couple of tiny eclairs, a couple of slices of opera cake. After waiting half an hour, we enquired about the scones, jam and cream, the waiter came back and informed us that the Chef that day had decided there were to be no scones with the afternoon tea! We were offered some chocolate brownies instead. They don't seem to understand that scones, jam and cream and an integral part of an afternoon tea, and they are promised on the menu. The food in Cafe Saigon is average at best, very greasy Spring Rolls and a watery TomYum style soup. Overall he dining options in the hotel are not that good......and it operates a Cookery School! On the whole the staff are all very friendly and approachable, the Concierge team were all excellent, however, be aware that they charge over €30 per day to valet park your car, again overly steep in our opinion. The hotel location is superb, right in the centre of things, close to the beach, old town, shopping, bars and restaurants. Overall, it is a good hotel, luxurious in feel but not across the board in what it actually delivers to the customer, which is a shame. Matt
"Beautiful hotel, beautiful views"
This hotel is located along a walkway with wonderful views of the sea and the beach. The rooms are spacious, quiet, tastefully decorated ( ours on one of the upper floors had gold and marine blue decor. The staircase is so beautiful that we walked upstairs everyday instead of taking the elevator. Fashion is displayed on each floor and it is vibrant, colorful. Breakfast in the restaurant has one of the best selections of fresh fruits, pastries and specialities of the Basque region. The hot chocolate comes in a silver pot and is rich and delicious with just a hint of sweetness. Wonderful!
"Exceptional, luxury, top, increible, una pasada..."
Top hotel in every single sense! Amazing room, service, restaurant... amazing everything My wife and I stayed the 28th December and we really enjoy the hotel, the atmosphere was excellent! In the end what makes it unique is the people that works there, they are very attentive with an eye on details.
