|We stayed at 3 different Paradores. Santa Domingo was the most spectacular witn a fantastic hall and nics rooms. The reception was very helpfull and kind. The rioja wineyards is very close to the village for a trip around- bike or car. We enjoyed our stay for two nights and will surely recommend this parador to our friends|

|My husband and I stayed at the Santo Domingo parador in July. We truly enjoyjed our stay. Besides the fact that the hall is quite impressive we felt that the whole building was restorated and maintained in such a lovely way and with attention to detail. We had dinner in the restaurant and were extremely happy with the quality and taste of the food (and, may I say, we are not easy to please when it comes to food). And we loved the breakfast! The staff pay so much attention to detail. The selection was great. Even the most health-concious is being satisfied. And everything is prepared in lovely little portions, arranged on the buffet with great care. Truly enjoyed our stay - Thank you!|
