Talasoterapia Zelai
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Zumaia
Reviewed 21 February 2017

was taking our dog to Itzurun beach, and stopped to have a butchers at the menu, and was suitably Impressed, even more impressed when i found out that you can combine a morning spa with a very good lunch, although on the day we were too late to have both so just ate a very good lunch with good service and fantastic views of the ocean.Cant wait to go again in the next few weeks this time for the spa and lunch, however as we live nearby I have never had need to stay at this hotel so cannot give an opinion on this

Room Tip: request a sea view,

The location is great and it's good to have parking and wifi. However, it's expensive for what you get. The room smelt and the hotel wasn't clean - lots of dust along edges of carpets in room and corridors, wellness centre tatty and mouldy. Rust marks on the bottom of the bath.

Also the photos of the wellness centre are misleading - you have to wear a swim hat and if you haven't brought your own (and why would you, given the photographs show users without them?) then they charge you 2 Euros to get one. No staff in the wellness centre when we went so had to go up to reception in our robes - not relaxing!

Breakfast was quite decent and helpful that the front staff spoke English. The parking is a bit tight and steep to get in and out of, but parking in the town is difficult so it is useful to have parking.

Didn't eat any other meals at the hotel so can't comment on any food other than brekkie.

The third hotel we stayed at on our visit to the basque country and the most expensive with the least reasons to justify the price.
The sea view room was adequate with very limited facilities - no tea and coffee etc and a mattress that had been bought in a bargain store. We ate there once - lunch - which was served by a waitress that gave the impression that she REALLY didn't enjoy her work and the food was of a standard you would expect in a cheap canteen. The hotel is tired, front desk staff helpful but no evidence of any management present to take a pride in their hotel. If you are looking to visit Zumaia, do so as it's a nice little coastal town with some good bars and an amazing coastline. I would, however, find a hotel that takes a little more pride in giving its residents a good time.

Room Tip: If you feel you want to stay ask for a sea view room

Stayed here for two nights on route to the Algarve. first room we had was basic and views of a block of flats, changed our room to 104 stunning views across the coast line,
friendly staff, interesting automatic toilets! restaurant was ok food good but there was something lacking, menu in the bar was better, wonderful prawns. Car park was very tight under the hotel with a steep hill up from the town and down to the carpark.
probably return for a short stay again if only for the views.

Room Tip: Room 104 stunning views

My sister and I spent a couple of days at Talasoterapia Zelai in Zumaia. We felt welcome and at ease from the moment we arrived and all throughout our stay.
We enjoyed the spa on two occasions. The meals were delicious, the staff most friendly and helpful and the location spectacular!!
We are looking forward to coming back and we want to send Sara and all her colleagues our love and gratitude.
