What a beautiful spot overlooking the water. So peaceful! We had a lovely room with a balcony. The grounds were very nice with different areas where you could sit and enjoy the vistas! I highly recommend this hotel.

The views from the hotel are wonderful and very relaxing, in my opinion the best thing about it. The rooms are clean with plenty of space. The place is very quiet and there are few houses but no restaurants nor shops around and of course you can't and shouldn't get there without a car. The breakfast is expensive (7.70euros) but...

Beautiful views, surrounded by nature, fun spa concept. I would definitely return with a partner (romantic visit, not for kids or friends) Cons... You need a car to move around (no public transport), unfriendly lady at reception, old and ugly bedrooms.

The best views in the Basque Country over the Urdaibai Biosphere reserve, great hosts that go out of their way to help you, very nice breakfast and beautiful garden to relax and enjoy the views. Rooms are big enough and very silent. They also offer a spa and massage service at the basement, for an extra relax. Beñat, the owner,...

the hotel, actually I would call it a pension, is all about its view to the atlantic ocean. And this is really brilliant !! Just to be aware of - the rooms are pretty basic, nothing special, also no fridge and minibar. But all clean and tidy. There is no bar in the hotel but at the very friendly receptionist...

I stayed at the Gametxo with a friend for two nights in a twin-room without breakfast in early July. The hotel receptionist pretty much told us to not bother with the breakfast as it was an extra €10 or so and in their words, “it’s not worth the money”. Tip – buy some grocery beforehand if you’re staying for a...

We actually have been drawn to the Gametxo hotel because of its remote rural location and the promised views of the Atlantic. And we have not been dissapointed during our 3-day stay! Our room was spacious, clean, with a good bed, nice balcony and a very good WiFi connection. The hotel staff was very friendly, the reception staff speaks English...

We stayed at hotel Gametxo for 3 nights and we really enjoyed our stay. The only issue we had is that we completely underestimated the time to drive to the hotel (you can only come by car). Given the hotel is located in the middle of the mountains and not even in the town mentioned (this is 'turismo rural'), it...

Take a decent map to find this place but when you do it's well worth it. Tremendous peaceful spot high up on a hill with fantastic views. Very nice clean and tidy rooms and lovely helpful staff. Food arrangement are a bit strange. Although a very nice breakfast is provided any other food is knocked up on an "as required"...
