Eu e minha esposa estavamos fazendo a Rota Portuguesa do Caminho de Santiago. Os pernoites eram feitos em albergues e hostais, mas eu fiz uma surpresa para ela, que é espanhola, reservando aquela noite no Parador Pontevedra. As instalações e a localização do Parador são ótimas. Tivemos um problema com o almoço, falei com a garçonete e com o "maitre", mas não concordei com as justificativas apresentadas. Ao fazer o check-in percebi que o valor total do prato estava lançado. Comentei com o senhor da recepção, que imediatamente retirou o valor da conta. Pelo que agradeço. Não pelo dinheiro, mas por reparar o desgosto de quem tinha acabado de andar 25km com mochila nas costas e ficar sem comer direito.Mas voltarei a me hospedar num Parador.

Pontevedra was the first parador we have stayed at. It was really difficult to locate the hotel - we had expected it to be well signed - it isn't. We eventually saw one sign but then no more until very close to the building. The building is lovely with beautiful old staircase - shame it is not for general use as the first floor has meeting/reception room, not bedrooms. Our room was OK, not very large but view out over the garden. It had a sofa bed in it which was very uncomfortable to sit on and if it had been pulled out as a bed there would have been no floor space left, in fact there wasn't room for it to be pulled out. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, especially with the car parking in the small courtyard. The breakfast was very disappointing, except for the lovely fresh orange juice. The hot food was not hot and not very inspiring. We enjoyed walking round the old town.

This was our fourth Parador in four nights and while the hotel is pleasant enough, the meal we were served was a disgrace. The restaurant in the hotel is not cheap but that is not the point. This experience has really caused us to rethink future plans. We had to feel sorry for the waiters who served us

We enjoyed very much our stay at the wonderful palace of Pontevedra and taking dinner on the terrace in the garden in the evening. Only the night was extremely noisy till the morning hours. At the reception they said that groups of young people celebrated a weekend party in the open air, what occurs more and more often.
