Thank you for the information. I'm leaving Wednesday for The Norte and then continuing on the Primitivo and I'm gathering all the info, I can get. Seems like albergues are popping up everywhere on the Primitivo so there should be beds for everybody.

excellent news, laurie! do you happen to know too if hotel las grandas is open all year or only in season, and if the restaurant still closes at 16h as someone posted on the forum?


Staff member
Hi caminka. I can't imagine the restaurant closes if there are people sleeping there bc there is absolutely nothing else there.

I do think they are only open seasonally. I'll try to remember to call them to get the answers.

Taking a rest in cadavo before heading onto Castroverde. So I called the hotel. Dinner is at 8 pm and they are open either all year or they occasionally close Dec and Jan. If you're going to walk then you should call to make sure. Buen camino, Laurie

When we stayed at the hotel El Salto, at the dam, the restaurant closed at 16.00 as it was a Sunday. They made us a meal at 15.50! just asked us to leave our packs in our room quickly and shower/change after eating. In the evening they made bocadillos and raciones in the bar, so there was plenty to eat.

The hotel might be under new management now since the name is Las Grandas. When I called to ask the question about dinner, the guy I spoke with said dinner is at 8 "Como siempre".

The bar and terrace are very nice. And I had a great pincho de tortilla. I think it might have been the most expensive café con leche I've ever had in Spain at 2.30€.
