Old and charming SPA
Reviewed 15 march, 2020
Location: The SPA/hoel is at distance of less than hour from Pontevedra and Vigo. To reach the SPA/hotel you need a car r transport arrangement. Many clients seem to come by car and you may need to park the car quite far from the hotel. There are no supermarket near the hotel- so what you need is better to buy from elsewhere. Public areas: There are a lot of moisture damages in the walls as well as worn structures without adequate maintenance and repair. The hotel needs urgent renovation. On the other hand worn places belong to the charm of the SPA/hotel. SPA:The SPA has some kind of ancient SPA feeling. There are quite many and different bubble options as well as rapid circular flow area.SPA department has dry sauna as well as steam sauna. The steam sauna was hot enough- so far they have been elsewhere too cold. The SPA has also Japanese type shallow outdoor pool. But again, a lot of renovation would be needed. The hotel has also a separate celtic circle SPA consisting of hot bubble bath, cave sauna, body shower and hot Japanese type shallow bath. Food: the breakfast is typical buffet breakfast without omelette service. Again, very little fish options but reasonable salad offering. The starters of dinner are taken from buffet while main course is ordered from a few options and brought to the table. The dinner starters included quite many salad options. The main courses were not anything special. This is so far the only hotel I have met offering water as a part of the dinner- excellent! Rooms: The rooms are large. Furniture is basic but adequate. The rooms have similar renovation need as the public areas. Personnel: I have nothing special to say about personnel. They did their job properly and effectively.

We had a nice stay, for three nights, with two children, in the last days of August. I guess we just missed peak season, which was great. The hotel didn't feel too full although I am pretty sure we had a room that was the furthest away from reception as possible - that's basically the only downer as it made every walk to and from the room a very long one. That being said we had a very spacious room with a separation between adults and children, which was a good plus. Breakfast was very good and with lots of choices, and the outdoor pool was also fairly big and comfortable to sit at. We didn't think we would use the Palacio del Agua, but we ended up doing it and went every afternoon. Our son had to pay, though, which was not so positive but in the end people there made it easy for us so my wife and I could share "his" time while the other parent took care of the baby. Dinner is a tad expensive for the quality, although the starter buffet does offer quite some variety (the mussels were excellent) - and children here cost nothing, go figure. The town is charming and offers some alternatives for meals, which at lunch time can cost 10€ for a full menu, which was great. Lots of different treks are to be found, and some river beaches also are to be found near the hotel. We also drove around, there are some castles (Soutomario or Sobroso) or an old Celtic "Castro" (Troña) that can be visited, and a drive to Arcade brought an excellent sea-food lunch. All in all we had a nice stay and some relaxing days.

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel and we were very pleased with our choise. It was a birthday gift for my boyfriend because of the golf course which is fantastic! My boyfriend had the chance to play in one of the most beautiful golf course in Spain. :) The staff was very nice, the rooms were ok, the spa also nice and the ¨circuito celta¨ that also the hotel offer, it was good but not great. (we expected more). We has a walk in the nature very near from the hotel and it was great! I love nature! If we have the chance, in the future, we will repeat the experience.
Higher expectations! Not a luxury spa/hotel
Reviewed 5 august, 2017
My parents and I spent three nights in this 4 starts hotel. As I mentioned in the title I had higher expectations. We got a triple room on the first floor, it was big enough and clean but the wardrobe doors were not working properly and the windows were too old (condensation problems and a bit nosy since we got a room with a view to the main road of the village, fortunatly there were not many cars during night) The breakfast is really good: different sorts of Galician cheese, fresh fruits, croissants, juices, serrano ham, eggs, coffee, tea, cereals... Tasty!! We went twice to "Palacio del Agua" (I loved the jacuzzi outside) and once to the "Circuito Celta". As in many other Finnish saunas in Spain you are not allowed to add water in the stones of the electric sauna. It is awful! You can not be naked as in a real Finnish sauna. The villages of Mondariz and Mondariz Balneario are very nice. We did two hiking trials along the river Tea where we saw many bridges (one Roman origin), watermills (most of them in ruins, the town council should invest in their reconstruction if they want to gain more visitors). Not far away from Mondariz you can visit an old celtic settlement "Castro de Troña" (for free) and the Sobroso Castle (not very expensive) To sum up: Mondariz Balneario is considered one of the best spa in Spain, and the best one in Galicia. The promissed you a luxury and ancient hotel but it is not, for me it is overrated and needs some reforms!
A nice place
Reviewed 1 july, 2017
This is a four stars hotel with a spa. But, most important, it is a historic place where one hundred year ago an important source of first quality mineral water was discovered (it is still a well reputed trade mark) and an impressive Spa and rest center were built by the best arquitects. The high society came here in the happy 20's. Later a fire destroyed the Spa which was rebuilt thirty years ago. This gives the village an old-fashioned but well preserved air. This hotel is perfect for a weekend: it has several restaurants and cafeterias, the rooms are well equipped, breakfast is ok, the Spa offers different circuits. The village has nice buldings and even an old English pub, and Portugal is ten kilometers away, with all its historic places and beautiful landscapes waiting for you (dont miss the Miño river and Monçao castle). In the negative side: some parts of the Spa need an urgent refurbishing. But globally the experience is worth it.
