URH Hotel Zen Balagares4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This is the best hotel property for 30 km. There is ample free parking if you rented a vehicle. It is a good choice for an early morning flight from OVD. The physical facilities are quite nice. The golf course (I don’t play) looks well groomed and not overly busy. Because it is the best property around, it seems to get a lot of convention/large meeting trade. We were there at the time of the Rotary International meeting for the province of Asturias. And there’s the rub. Lots of guests require lots of extra wait staff. Or so you would think. We tried to grab a bite to eat at around 9:30 pm (not late by Spanish standards). The hotel restaurant is overpriced but the bar menu is very similar and much more reasonable. So we went to the bar (already occupied by about 60 Rotarians). One bartender and no floor help meant that we waited more than 35 minutes and left without ever having even seen any wait staff. That service is awful even by the relatively relaxed Spanish notions of attentive service. Our frustration was compounded by the presence of 5 staff behind the registration desk at 10:00 pm on a Saturday night at a hotel that was already full. Huge misallocation of staff. So great property, but staffing needs work.
