Client Reviews for El Castillo de Playa America


Talk about "unique" that is an understatement! What a fantastic property, sitting on the front veranda overlooking the sea and such wonderful sunsets, 2 weeks just wasn't enough. We arrived to find a fantastic "welcome pack" of food and wine, everything you could want in a property, we even went to buy fresh fish and cooked it on the BBQ. We feel it is the best house we have ever stayed in...so far...already booked for June next year so have put a deposit on another house in Galicia for June 2017. For future travellers, drive anout 10 mins North to Prado where there is a lovely Tapas Bar and very reasonable too, also a meal at Angeleto's is a must; beautiful restaurant, good food and excellent service. The pool could be a little cool but brave it and go in then relax under the pergola with a glass of wine and watch the sea.

Having stayed in several of your Baiona properties (we have friends in nearby Nigran) this is our favourite. The location is amazing, the house clean and comfortable and the gardens beautiful. Thank you for another fabulous holiday.

Most impressive property. First sight was a real treat being right at the end of the main beach with large lawns, ponds full of small frogs and a glorious swimming pool. Inside, you are struck by the space and views across the bay. Superb rooms throughout the property. Almost immediately plans were made by all of us to walk the beach all the way to the end and back again....a good two miles of soft and clean sand (a tractor cleans the beach each evening). We did a lot of walking, running, beach games and swimming on this holiday. Then again we spent a lot of time relaxing under the clear blue skies in glorious sunshine and sight seeing around the area. Galicia really is a special place and we intend to see more of it in the next few months and years.

Lovely house, fabulous location, very well equipped, very comfortable. Gorgeous garden and pool with excellent amenities. The owners seem to have gone out of their way to provide almost anything clients might need, even down to dishwasher tablets. The welcome pack was excellent...

...We had a great time, it allowed us to relax and see, and entertain, our Spanish family members too and we loved the houses location, its pool, the frogs in the ponds, the garden and having such easy access to the area. We've been coming to Baiona and Vigo for over 15 years and have always admired El Castillo; it is a real treat for all of us to be able to stay in it. Could you please thank Ana and Alicia and the gardener for us - they did a great job!

We've had a wonderful week here - we loved the beach and the swimming and being able to retire to our garden and pool for lunch and sunbathing. We enjoyed several trips to Baiona - walking the old streets, going around the Pinta (Ship/Musuem) and exploring the fortress/parador. Los Angelitos - restaurant on our doorstep - was excellent and very popular - filling up from about 10pm. Surfing/body boarding at Playa de Patos was great fun. The Monday morning market trip to Baiona also a great outing and a perfect place to stock up the fridge with local treats.
