Great food, great sea views. Rooms and conference center also fine.

The hotel is just like another hotel with welcoming staff, neat and clean room. But the scenic beauty you get to see around this place is very serene and calming. The way to reach this place also has nice views going through village and farm lands. Morning breakfast was also great and there were loads of options to eat from. I surely recommend to go here and feel the scenic beauty. Plus they are kids friendly.

Very good service. Great food! I asked for a vegan option and I was not disappointed! The main course was a Mushroom "thingy" on root vegetables and potatoes on the side. The dessert was vanilla ice cream made from soy milk, strawberries and merengue made with aquafaba. Delicious experience in a very beautiful setting with a very nice view of the sea.

Medieval Walls of Avila

The city walls of Avila were built in the 11th century to protect the citizens from the Moors. They have been well maintained throughout the centuries and are now a major tourist attraction as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors can walk around about half of the length of the walls.

The layout of the city is an even quadrilateral with a perimeter of 2,516 m. Its walls, which consist in part of stones already used in earlier constructions, have an average thickness of 3 m. Access to the city is afforded by nine gates of different periods; twin 20 m high towers, linked by a semi-circular arch, flank the oldest ones, Puerta de San Vicente and Puerta del Alcázar.
