    Our opinion

    Hotel description

    Within the ancient walls of a former fortress, the four-star Parador de Baiona enjoys the tranquillity of its isolated location on the Monterreal peninsula. Protected from the Atlantic by its position inside the bay, this property affords panoramic views along the length of the bay and to the Cies Islands. The view is reminiscent of that from a quiet lakeside. The hotel structure itself shows a fascinating combination of influences, where mediaeval-style architecture is revived with Mediterranean elements. As you draw up to the hotel along a broad driveway, you are met by a stately entranceway that mimics the style of a castle tower topped with machicolation. All about, other hotel buildings feature sloped terracotta roofing tiles which contrast the greens and blues of the natural scenery. Step into the lobby and the castle-like experience continues, with a grand stone stairway which is dimly lit by a chandelier and decorated with suits of armour, rich tapestries and antique portraiture. Furnished with four-poster beds, thick carpets and exposed brickwork, the guestrooms carry a similar theme but prioritise comfort and claim sea views. You can also seek refuge in a number of elegant halls, where parquet floors reside under heavy beams, and armchairs welcome you for daytime and evening relaxation. The hotel also boasts two dining areas for enjoying Galician cuisine: Restaurante Torre del Principe and Enxebre A Pinta. The latter is only open in the summer months. Spacious grounds feature extensive lawns which stretch the length of the peninsula; you can wander the fortress walls, enjoy a leisurely outdoor swimming pool or descend to a small cove with a sandy beach that looks towards the port. Real Club de Yates de Baiona offers nautical pastimes and a huge array of cultural activities, tours and experiences can be arranged through the hotel.
