Walking into the office, you talk to clerk, and within minutes, you’re checked in. The price range is moderate/high, between $75 and $100 per room, but the best part is that up to four(five if you sneak one in) can stay in a room. All the rooms are more like small villas, with full kitchens, a living/dining room, and a huge bedroom with either two double beds or one queen/king-size bed.
It gets better - the price includes lunch and dinner, with is made to order. Out back, you have a huge swimming pool, and of course, the ocean. My 2-day stay at this slice of heaven was great: the management is great, the service is great, and the location is amazing. I happened to go during the low-season in mid-December, so if you're planning to go, be sure to call ahead. It almost impossible to book a room during Semana Santa (Easter break) or the first few weeks of the summer. Overall, my experience at Pontevedra was great. It is highly recommended. Enjoy!
