URH Hotel Zen Balagares4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Actually a lovely hotel. Staff are pleasant enough. Room was perfect but the a/c was never sure what it was doing. 3good nights out of 4. The gym is well equipped but the pool is not for swimming in, it is a spa pool, great as a spa pool obviously. Stunning views of the steel mill and docks. Doubt I will stay again unless I take up golf. Course was well looked after. No where to sit outside??????? Why no loungers tables and chairs
The hotel is clean and nicely decorated. But far away from everything else. The spa is nice and probably the best part of the hotel. The buffet dinner was not worth mentioning. Or maybe only the bad food I had.
Hi We stay for 4 days.. and the experience was average. Rooms are nice, no complains. Restauarnt was disorganized and staff was unfriendly.. Recreation is poor SPA was broken on one of the days.. SPA is limited and needs pre reservation.. that means that if you come just for 1 day.. you would not be able to use it. There is no open swimming pool, is integrated with the SPA, so children can not use it freely. The surroundings are industrial and awful.. very poluted air! Nor recomended at all for vacations
My review is little late as I haven't been to this property in a longtime but I remember the neat & clean rooms, amazing views (see photos attached) and a remote location. Reaching there is a challenge, the restaurant is quite decent & the area is very nice.
We just stayed at hotel zen balagares the hotel in itself was very nice, the room was spacious and modern although the wifi was very unstable. The facilities were great. We tried the spa and we also used the gym, The gym was included in the price but the spa wasn't we paid 20 something euros pr. Pers for the spa. (Maybe they should give a discount for clients) The staff where friendly and helpfull, but they where very understaffed they had the same waiters attending the restaurant downstairs and the bar upstairs at all hours!!! Obviously resulting in long waits at the bar.
Stayed here for 3 nights as part of the World Duathlon Championships supporting Team GBR Good hotel 3/4 miles from the town centre. Room overlooking the golf course was very good. Quiet location. Other than breakfasts we travelled into the picturesque Old Town and frequented the local restaurants No shuttle available but local Taxis were €10 and there was a slight wait while they were called. Good base for visiting the town and area.
This is a very nice hotel but it isn't great for kids. It is fairly far from town in terms of walking. The breakfasts were OK and dinners fairly high in price. There is nothing to do around the hotel except for golfing. The TV in the room is very small and doesn't have a external hdmi port for external devices. The Internet is horrible. It rarely works and when it does it is very slow.
I stayed at this hotel a few times. Definitely the best choice in the area in terms of value for money. Service is really good, room is large enough and there´s a nice restaurant and a spa (I have never used the spa, so I cannot comment on that). Buffet breakfast offers a good selection of food options. You need a car if you stay in this hotel, but there is a free parking lot. The only thing I dislike about the hotel is that the wifi is a bit slow sometimes (but it is a free internet connection).
Ultra modern hotel in the middle of a housing estate. It took us an hour to find the hotel as there was only one road to the place. The room was excellent and the bathroom was the latest in modern stile. The hotel seemed very impersonal, as it appears to be mainly for business people. The restaurant was typical of a mass market chain. We only had breakfast there. We stayed two nights. We would return now we know where it is.
This hotel looks strange from the outside surrounded by the golf course and private houses that didn't actually looked lived in, almost like a ghost town. Rooms are excellent, nice decor and spotless. We decided to use the spa as a family unknowingly this was at a cost of 22 euros per head for 90 minutes which we all thought was pretty ridiculous for what it was and should possibly have been free for guests ! There were very few staff visible at the hotel and it seemed to be the same ones working at all hours day and night. We opted for room service which was okay nothing really to write home about. Went down for coffee and a nightcap later in the evening and staff seemed uninterested in taking or serving our order and it seemed like an inconvenience. My average rating above is an overall rating, the hotel room itself would be an excellent.
