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.
"Sunny Spanish Sunday"
We were coming to Spain from Biarritz and were going to explore the north coast of Spain, but preferred to see smaller towns and cities. Getxo, pronounced Getcho, a suburb of Bilbao, seemed ideal. After searching for dog friendly hotels the Hotel Petit Palace Tamarises was chosen. A simple booking on-line at a very reasonable price and off we went. It was a beautiful spring Sunday with glorious sunshine, a good omen. , The hotel was easy to find and just across the road from the beach, but parking, free public on road parking, was a little tricky due to the weather and the day, luckily one of the hotel staff was going off duty and we took her parking space just in front of the hotel. So, friendly staff! Ireida, the receptionist, was very helpful and friendly, and answered all our questions. The hotel was clean, neat and tidy. Our room, with a sea view and balcony, was well appointed and roomy, the bed and pillows were very comfortable! The bathroom was spacious and the shower was very good, loved the body jets! We had booked one night and stayed for three! The hotel does breakfast but not dinner. There is a restaurant next door to the hotel, named the Tamarises, but not part of the hotel. We didn't eat there, but it was extremely busy.
"OK - but in what way is it non-smoking'"
We stayed here for 1 night in April 2017. This hotel is in a beachfront location, though with views of industry across the bay. There are restaurants nearby. The area is popular and busy, but it felt safe to us. The hotel staff are particularly helpful. There is a strong smell of cigarette smoke throughout most of the hotel, even though the hotel is supposed to be non-smoking. The hotel and rooms are otherwise clean and seem to be well maintained. To some extent the hotel is a triumph of style over function. The shower was one of the best we've ever encountered, but the design of the shower area (with a partial partition but no door as such) means that the use of the shower causes a small flood in the rest of the bathroom! And no, it's not supposed to be a wet room. The breakfast buffet was good. Although we paid an additional charge for off-street parking, it is not really any more secure as it is just in a small area in front of the hotel but on the other side of the road and with a barrier to prevent non-payers entering. In view of the extreme smell from smoking, we would not stay here again.
"A very nice hotel in front of the beach"
The hotel is very nice. Breakfast is very good and my room was small but cosy and the batroom very modern. The hotel is just on the main road and two steps from the beach. Just out you have parking along the road .
"Can't Rave Enough!"
The service staff were excellent! The rooms were pristine with amazing views of the beach! Not only were we treated extremely well, our dog was also comfortably accommodated! We just moved to Getxo from the U.S. and will gladly recommend to all of our visitors to stay at Tamarises!!! Cheers!
"Great value! "
Confortable bed, spacious bathroom, good and varied breakfast and above all attentive and knowledgeable staff, Gracias!All this in an atractive location, by the sea. . Definitely a different option if visiting Bilbao.
