Thinking of where rest your head after a full day of Galicia explorations?
Well, if you happen to be near Vigo, in the so called Rias Baixas – aka South Galicia estuaries – it is your lucky day! We have just came back from there – and took a few pictures here and there as you can see above these lines, oops! – and have some suggestions for you after testing three of the best properties around.
Think of your priorities and head to one, two or these three awesome hotels.
Thank us later!
Coziness and Great Value in Casa do Marques
Do not get confused. We aren’t talking about a budget hotel here but an amazing opportunity to experience a ‘Casa Rural’ or traditional charming home refurbished for hosting selected guests. That is how you will feel if you decide to book a room here. Because the people working there will make your stay unforgettable.
Mid size rooms, all of them en suite and some facing the beach located 100m away with just what you need to channel your inner self and disconnect from your daily routine.
Bonus tip: Ask Pablo, the manager, for local recommendations and leave the guidebook home. He directed us to the nicest spots for sunset pictures, uncrowded beaches and tapas bars. In fact, the majority of snaps accompanying these lines were taken thanks to his guidance!
Treating Yourself in Talaso Atlantico
A Thalassotherapy circuit is just one of the many perks you will enjoy in this 4 star hotel. Facing the Atlantic Ocean and enjoying a privileged location by a lighthouse, it is the perfect place to pamper yourself for a few days.
Forget you have a car if you do and explore the surroundings by foot. The stunning seashore and nearby hills are waiting for you!
Bonus tip: Match your Spa circuit time with the sunset for stunning views of the shore from the comfort of the thermal waters or, alternatively, at the latest hour available on a weekday. You will have the whole facility for yourself!
Finding Urban luxury in Gran Hotel Nagari
Outstanding design with a pretty high coolness factor? Check.
Integrated Zen Spa and Gym? Check.
Rooftop pool terrace and bar? Check.
Fine cuisine in a restaurant to see and be seen? Check.
Great location steps away from the pier and clubbing scene in a pedestrian central area? Check.
More amenities and furniture than you could use during your stay like a keyboard to navigate your tv, all the toiletries you can think of, huge whirlpool with enough room for two, neon lighten up shower, fancy desk, hip chaise longs, three different ambient lights to choose from, etc, etc? Check!
Do you want me to go on? Well, the list is never-ending. This boutique hotel is really something else and, although it comes at a higher price, you should keep it in mind for that special occasion or if you are ready to get the Royal treatment. We have warned you!
Bonus tip: Reserve some time to lock yourself up and simply enjoy your room. Afterwards, you can head to the terrace on the top floor and enjoy the open air pool (if the weather is nice, otherwise the removable cover will also allow you to do so indoors) before sunset or sip some cocktails in the same space at night. Magical.
Disclaimer. We were invited to review these 3 hotels. Anyway, all the opinions are our own. Because you can’t buy us with comfy beds, great location, lots of amenities and fancy pools. Or maybe you do! Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did 😀
