The suites include locker rooms and a private pool.
The spa and wellness center is equipped with a hydrotherapy pool, Turkish baths, sauna, and 3 treatment rooms.

TheAkelarre Relais & Chateaux also houses an impressive wine cellar that can be enjoyed as well.

There are free city and beach transfers (limited availability) from the hotel as well. Car rental services are available as well.


This is not a hotel in the city center of San Sebastian. You will enjoy however impressive views of the sea and a relaxing and quiet stay. 

The Victoria Eugenia theater and the Kursaal convention center are both 5 km from the hotel and the San Sebastián airport is 21 km.

Overall Review

Akelarre,the hotel, was probably born due to the comments of so many guests at the 3 star Michelin restaurant. The venue is impressive and it offers one of the best views of the sea in all Northern Spain. 

If you do not care about not staying in the center of San Sebastian and can afford the bill, this is a very romantic option to stay in the city of San Sebastian, and a pretty convenient one if you plan to dine at the superb restaurant too.
