Bottom Line

The 120-room Hotel Maria Manuela stands out as a bigger hotel in an area where boutique hotels are more common. Located in a quiet section of the Gueña Valley, this peaceful hotel is made up of stone villas. There is an indoor children's play area, a cafe bar, buffet restaurant, and spa with a grotto-like indoor pool. Some rooms have balconies with beautiful valley views, but room furnishings are outdated including rugs and bedspreads. A quality breakfast buffet and Wi-Fi are both free.

Oyster Hotel Review

Hotel Maria Manuela & Spa


Hotel of stone villas with valley views

Made up of stone villas with green valley views, the Hotel Maria Manuela benefits from a serene setting. There isn’t a lot of green space on the hotel property, just a small grassy yard. Lounge chairs on a stone patio and picnic tables lined up on pavement offer guests places to enjoy the outdoors. The hotel lobby has rustic features like a brick bar forming the front desk and a wooden staircase. The café bar has exposed beams and is decorated with black-and-white framed photos and windows with painted fleurs-de-lis. The spa has cave-like walls and ceilings and several pools with color-changing lights.
