The hotel is a delight - off the beaten track but close enough to shops, beaches, restaurants etc. to ensure you don't feel too isolated. Large, clean rooms with, if you're lucky, magnificent sea views - literally the beach is across the road. The owner, Paco, is an excellent host, but be warned, he doesn't speak a word of English....

A friend and I spent a week here in low season and had the full attention of the staff, something I think would have happened even if it were high season. The rooms are squeaky clean and the food is so delicious that we ate in every night. But more than that there was an unexplained vibe to the place,... More

This hotel is lovely, clean, well maintained, food excellent (the food doesn't stop arriving at breakfast - dinner of the Paella was gorgeous - thoughts of it making me crave it now). We booked through Sally and John for 2 nights - who we can't wait to meet again to have a few cheeky Albarinos and beers. Having no Spanish... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Caracol is a recently refurbished small, friendly hotel, situated off the coastal road between Pontevedra and Sanxenxo. Sitting just metres from the shores of the Ria de Pontevedra, overlooking the beautiful Island of Tambo, there are two beaches, an old harbour and a small taverna.Rooms have sea views, (and at high tide the sea is only a few metres away), ensuit bathrooms and televisions. Prices include an incredible breakfast served on the terrace, and either half or full board is available.The hotel also boasts what we consider to be the best restaurant in the area, Restaurant - Taverna El Caracol.Sit on the terrace overlooking the sea, with any luck you will see the dolphins, and enjoy the freshest seafood, or local meats cooked in a traditional wood burning oven (asadora), severed by the ever gregarious Paco the hotel owner.The hotel is perfectly placed to visit many wonderful towns, villages, islands and beaches, you can walk in the forest or just laze in the sun.Take a trip from the harbour around the ria, try a bit of mackerel fishing or go dolphin spotting it really is great fun for all.Sit on the terrace overlooking the sea, with any luck you will see the dolphins, and enjoy the freshest seafood, or local meats cooked in a traditional wood burning oven (asadora), severed by the ever gregarious Paco the hotel owner.The hotel is perfectly placed to visit many wonderful towns, villages, islands and beaches, you can walk in the forest or just laze in the sun.Take a trip from the harbour around the ria, try a bit of mackerel fishing or go dolphin spotting it really is great fun for all. ... more   less
