Parador de Pontevedra Reviews
Too expensive parador May 28, 2012
Paradors in Spain are normally outstanding hotels in special historical buildings as castles or monasteries. They offer high quality in service and beautiful rooms.
Unfortunately the parador in Pontevedra is an exception.
First of all, when you arrive by car it is not easy to find. The parador has only a few places to park your car, so the reception must have your car key so that it can be replaced. Not a nice idea!
The Parador occupies the Casa Baron which was formerly the residence of the Counts of Maceda. It has a small garden closed by walls from the outside. The dark bar is also small and has only a few seats. The restaurant is spacious and offers a good breakfast buffet as well as a al la carte dinner.
The first room we were offered was so tiny that there was only place for a small twin bed. The suitcases were a problem. The bathroom was also very small with only a shower. No option for us!
We complained and were offered a bigger room, the matrimonial suite overlooking the garden. Indeed, this is what we expected when booking a room at a parador. Of course we had to pay extra (€ 132, excluding breakfast € 15 per person).
All in all, we were disappointed in this parador. Perhaps the parador of Monforte de Lemos made our expectations too high...
