1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Family freindly atmosphere at the 'hotel' and lots of other children around for my sons to play with. The hosts, Fiona, Gareth and their children were marvellous in every way. Fiona and Gareth arranged a horse riding and kayaking sessions, which my sons aged 5 and 7 enjoyed enormously and was probably the most exciting for them.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Having a access to a car allows one to make the most of the vacation.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

It certainly benefited local people and also our host were aware of environmental impacts, such encouraging re-cycling. They could perhaps have encouraged the guests more to use re-fill water bottles for day trips etc, using the tap water. Provide home made yogurt for self service large bowls at break fast buffet, to reduce on packaged yogurt at breakfast. But, these meant as suggestions rather than criticisms.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent, my sons and I enjoyed our holidy enormously, would happily return in a couple of years time.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Biking in a gorgeous setting. There were enough rides on varied terrain for every ability level accessible right from the hotel.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

It's best suited for the active traveler. Bikers, runners and swimmers will relish the ample options.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. The hotel buys locally sourced food, minimises water usage (less frequent laundering of guest towels), has a solar-heated pool, and doesn't allow kettles in rooms. They also recommended a local horse riding stable and nearby restaurants.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

As a family we all loved it. Gareth and Fiona see to everything to make sure all your needs are catered for.

review 21 Apr 2014

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The atmosphere. The amazing biking. The friendliness of the Spaniards and our hosts. The excellent food.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Make sure you research all there is to do so that you can take advantage of exactly what you like best. The region, in close proximity to Mas Pelegri, is absolutely full of incredible things to do, especially sporting activities. We were full to the brim AND we'd have liked to do more research even before going.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. By spending our money in the region we absolutely helped the locals. Hopefully, that little bit of our contribution, gave a drop in the bucket of some needed economic stimulation.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Outstanding.
