This charming B&B is a 20-minute walk from Cathedral Beach, famous for its dramatic rock formations. It is a 5-minute walk from several lovely and unspoiled beaches. The inn is run by a very likable husband and wife couple. The wife is an excellent cook.

We stayed for 4 days in Casa do Merlo and it was the highlight of our 2 weeks trip in Galicia. I can't praise enough this place. - Casa do Merlo is perfectly located for visiting nearby villages and beaches (Cathedrals, Ribadeo, Taramundi and other). It is a great place to explore Galicia from, if you don't want to move from one place to another every night. - The rooms are very spacious and beautiful. A combination of country house charm and luxury. - Javier, the owner of the place, was amazing! So helpful and welcoming! He was taking great care of the guests from early morning to late dinner. He also gave us great tips on what to see during our stay and helped to redesign our trip, so that we could see the best of Galicia and skip the not so best. - The food! Great breakfasts. They are not included, but they are worth it. I would highly recommend you to eat your dinners at Casa. Their restaurant is by far the best one in the area we could find. Also their black squid paella (rice) is to die for. -We felt that the owners value quality in everything. From small details in the rooms to even tea in the restaurant (quality tea instead of tea bags). - The wifi is not so great. It is ok to send messages and check Facebook, but not to stream video, which when you think about it is good in the end. You want to relax and unwind in this place and not be trapped in your phone. All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone travelling to Galicia.

We had decided to stay only in interesting older hotels on this trip and had almost given up on finding anything along this stretch of ocean, but then we discovered Casa de Merlo. Set only walking distance from this rugged coastline and ten minutes drive from the famed Praia de Catedrais with its sculpted 'sea stacks', we later regretted that we had only one night to spare. The whole property was clearly once set on it's own in open country and has a surrounding stone wall. This means that, although holiday homes have encroached into the area a bit over the years, once you are inside the gate you don't notice them at all. It actually contributes to a cosy, protected feel to the place, although it was blissfully quiet around and about - as is all of this coast in the low season. There is interesting old furniture and artefacts around the rooms and public areas, so it's an ideal blend of antique charm with the more modern amenities and wi fi (which works a bit better downstairs to be honest!). The owner was really welcoming, spoke excellent English and gave us a delightful room with it's own bright galeria and faux four poster bed. The bathroom was very tastefully decorated and inspired me to do something about mine back home! On the other side of the compound is the restaurant, where in the morning we found a formidable breakfast buffet that catered to all needs and nationalities (cooked eggs etc were also offered). In fact it was almost too much after our superb dinner the night before - we were still trying to digest a huge delicious sea bass that they had served with an excellent local wine. Our advice would be to take a brisk walk down to the beach BEFORE breakfast! A last word on the service: we had already enjoyed conversations and advice on the local area from our host, but he then also really 'went the extra mile' to try an obtain a rental surfboard for me (sadly hard to find in the low season). This involved him ringing around local people etc and was much appreciated. A shame the waves weren't as helpful that day and failed to show up! PS. A tip on finding it: once you get close there are three Casa de Merlo signs on various roads that approach the hotel. Once you are past those, drive a bit slower as you could miss the entrance way, especially at night (the hotel is set back from the road).

We (family of 4, including older teenagers) stayed at Casa do Merlo on the first night of our holiday, as a treat, and it was well worth it. We booked a triple room and a double - both rooms were very comfortable, well furnished, and had spacious bathrooms. Everything was pristine. The downstairs rooms for the use of guests were an added bonus. Best of all about our stay was the personal service we received from the staff - they were all very pleasant and helpful (and their English was good). We ate in the hotel restaurant, which was excellent, and again the staff went out of their way to explain local dishes and make recommendations from the menu. Breakfast the following morning was probably the best we had during our stay in Spain - a very good buffet selection and very reasonably priced. We had a couple of hours to spare and visited a couple of the beaches nearby, which were lovely, though not quite within easy walking distance. A number of houses are being built around Caso do Merlo, mainly through the expansion of Reinante, but they don't take too much away from the character of the house.

The staff and owner are very helpful, the restaurant excellent but we had a small room although it was cosy. What we found disappointing was that the whole area has been built up and is now a sprawling mess of bungalows, villas and holiday homes as is the whole coastline in this area. Ten years ago it must have been very remote and rural - now , especially in August, the beaches, country lanes and restaurants are HEAVING with tourists (Spanish not English) and the landscape suffers from what they call in Ireland 'bungalow blight'. It was all too much for us and two nights was enough. Out of season is probably the best time to go although, of course, the holiday homes are still there as a blot on the landscape.
