The gorgeous and recently renovated Hospes Palacio de Arenales was once the home of a very noble family, but this 17th century historic residence is now a luxurious hotel, complete with its very own spa and relaxation-inducing wellness centre. A night or two here will take you back to the stress-free existence of the 17th century itself, with a few more mod-cons, of course.
Your stay in a Deluxe Room also includes a delicious buffet breakfast, a welcome drink to see you in, in style, complimentary Wi-fi and use of the swimming pool. You could also choose to read a book in the garden, hang out on the terrace or enjoy a scrumptious dinner in the on-site restaurant, ZERUA.
Don’t forget to make the most of the spa and wellness centre either. The hydrothermal circuit (not from the 17th century) features the very latestin technology and you can also take advantage of a number of pampering opportunities and beauty treatments.
How to Get There
Very nice place situated just a few minutes outside the city of Cáceres, good SPA and excellent breakfast. Very quite location and well equipped rooms.
The service in the restaurant could be improved to reach the general rating of the hotel.
Just outside Cáceres, on a hill, away from the highway, lies this beautiful historic complex, completely transformed from a farm into a 5-star hotel in 2007. The architecture is modern, leaving the historic building intact. Spacious rooms fitted with all modern conveniences, safe, kettle. Unsecured Wi-Fi. Good restaurant and delicious breakfast with lots of fresh fruit. Points of attention, especially to maintain a 5 star rating, are speaking the English language, the cleaning (windows not clean, spider in the bathroom), no evening check of the room by housekeeping and many lights that do not function.
Arrived 3 hours late off ferry at Santander and had long drive with boat-trailer to hotel. Arrived at midnight to warm welcome. Upgraded. Very comfortable. Underground secure car park very useful. Located just off the motorway this quality hotel makes a first class pitstop enroute to Gibraltar and the Costa del Sol.
We booked this hotel for three nights so that we could explore Cáceres, and to enjoy the spa facilities. We enjoyed the hotel and its surroundings. The staff were very helpful and the rooms were comfortable and quiet. The spa was a nice feature since it was November we were able to enjoy the indoor pool, sauna and steam room. The breakfast buffet had many items to select from and was fresh and well presented. We would definitely return to this hotel if we are in the area .
Last minute booking but a great find especially because we were travelling with our dog. Really easy to locate the hotel and a lovely welcome at reception. Room was superb and even had a dog bed, dog bowl and treat which was amazing because our booking was very last minute. Sat outside in a pretty courtyard enjoying delicious local wines. We ate from the bar menu and the food was very Spanish and very tasty.
A very positive experience in a lovely hotel with an interesting history. So much so we have booked it for our return to the UK in December. Well worth a stopover!!
