Ideally located right on the Ereaga beachfront, in the exclusive Neguri neighbourhood, Petit Palace Tamarises Hotel boasts beautiful views of the sea and the city of Bilbao. Petit Palace Tamarises Hotel is just a stone's throw away from Bilbao and within easy access of the tourist hotspots in the Vizcaya region. The Puente Colgante de Portugalete (suspension bridge) is only two kilometres away and Bilbao Airport is a ten-minute drive away from Petit Palace Tamarises Hotel.
"An Enjoyable Stay in Getxo at the Tamarises"
We stayed at the hotel Tamarises for 5 nights in October 2016. A majority of rooms have the sea view and we were happy to pay a bit more for this. Nice room, very pleasant staff and great breakfast. Ereaga is a great beach and is right outside. We went to Bilbao City Centre a couple of times – Metro station is less than 10 mins walk; Trains are every few minutes and take about half an hour. Back in Getxo, the main town centre is Algorte which is either a 15 min walk away (up the hill as if walking to the metro but then left along an attractive pedestrian avenue) or along the front a short way to the 20¢ Ascensor de Ereaga lift then 5 mins walk. I can't see a Trip Advisor entry for the Puerto Deportivo or La Fontena so I'll mention this here: 10 mins walk the other way along the front is the Marina (Puerto Deportivo) which, as well as the inexpensive Aquarium (nice way to spend an hour) and a few bars and restaurants, includes the 'McDonalds complex' which deserves a special mention given the often encountered Spanish issue of late restaurant opening times versus young children's bedtime. Whilst most of the time we ate our main meal out as a late lunch mid afternoon, this day we had only had a sandwich earlier so were very hungry come 6pm. We ate at La Fontena and the Arrabiata and shared Caprese Salad certainly hit the spot and our 6 year old enjoyed his pizza. The motorway service area type feel to the place and the lack of other diners were not an issue for us given we were just glad to eat something more than Pintxos at a reasonable hour.
"pretty room, warm and friendly service"
I stayed at the Tamarises for the baptism of the child of a close friend. I travelled through Germany and France and was not sure when I would get there. Checked the website often, prices and availabilty varied a lot! Not sure if this is typical of the Tamarises or a wide-spread phenomenon. Anyway, I got a nice room, but without a view. Since they had declared that clearly on their website, that was no problem for me. The bathroom was very nice and modern, the room super clean. The hotel is situated right by the beach - perfect for strolls. What really impressed me was how friendly and helpful the staff was: five stars plus for the service!!!
"Good location, good staff!"
Stayed here at Petit Palace Tamarises in September 2016. Good room, but unfortunately facing the road at the back, so no view. Size of room was ok, but really loved the bathroom and the shower. Very competent staff and the breakfast was brilliant. Quiet place with nice paths for exercise along the beach and easy access to metro for trips to Bilbao City Center.
"Lovely friendly hotel with fantastic facilities and personal touches"
This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in! We had a very comfortable and stylish room with sea view and balcony. Thanks so much for making my husbands birthday so special - all the extra touches were really appreciated - this was very generous and thoughtful :)) Our dogs were also made welcome and even had some high quality dried food and bowls and bed ready for them! Lovely view of the beach and mountains, very friendly and helpful staff. Thank you so much - we will definitely try and come back soon and spend more than one night next time - we loved it so much :)
This is beautiful small hotel with very friendly staff. They offer bikes for free, hotel has got only two bikes on first come first serve basis. Located right in front of the sea in an affluent town, it offers a beautiful view. Nice place to stay if like to walk or run. Good value for money :)
