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
Stayed here for 3 nights, not quite as expected but reasonably good.
Certainly not 5 star, possibly a good 3 star. Outside of main town, 5 mins in car/taxi to Centre of town.Clean, modern and excellent staff but a bit sole less. Rooms adequately furnished but plainly decorated, not wow.
Give the restaurant a miss for dinner, decidedly average, fantastic selection of restaurants in town.
Good hotel but would hesitate to return, we’ve stayed in other Hospes hotels in Spain which were better.
We enjoyed our stay at Hospes Palacio de Arenales. We stayed for 6 nights as we traveled through most of Extremadura for day trips. First of all, the staff was fabulous! They couldn’t do enough for us and they were always concerned that everything was OK. If we had any doubt or query, they were very willing to help out. You don’t always get good attention like this at some hotels (even though they’re 5 star hotels!). The breakfast was very good, quite abundant and complete. We were always asked if we wanted an omelette or scrambled eggs with bacon. The breakfast maitre, Francisco, was excellent, always concerned that everything was right. We ate lunch in the dining room one day and both the quality and the service were excellent! I had a lovely wine called Tiara (from Extremadura) and I was told where I could purchase it at a good price. Although the spa was small, it was complete and had everything you would find at other hotel spas. My only complaint would be the internet connection. It was alright for mobiles. (although I often turned it off), but I brought my MacBook and wanted to do some work, but it was impossible to connect to internet. Nonetheless, we were extremely pleased with our experience at Hospes Palacio de Arenales!
A short drive from old town .
Very few public spaces in the hotel . Parking is a 5 min walk very windy.
Spa ok , towels smell of oil . We took a short massage but the masseuse made it even shorter by coming in 5 mins late and finishing 5 minutes early.
Rooms are very clean , but get cold , lack of heating in corridors. No turn down service.
Hospes hotel website claim 10% lower than best rate but they actually refuse to do it .
We were celebrating our Anniversary hotel did not wish even after knowing.
Breakfast is very good.
Stayed here on our way from Santander to Cadiz. The hotel was easy to find as it was just off the motorway. The rooms were lovely and the breakfast very good. Apart from the good choice of continental you could order a cooked breakfast. The staff who were very pleasent gave us a map of Cacares which was a ten minute drive away so it was easy to find parking and walk to the old town for dinner. There didnot seem to be many people dining in the hotel. We would definately return if we passed that way again.
Although it occupies a large area, this property has a relatively small number of guest rooms - giving one the feeling of staying at a hacienda. Contrary to comments by ¨Ícetrotter´ there is nothing typical or landslide about this place.
Having stayed at two other Hospes properties I can confirm the quality of rooms and service is exceptional.
