Checking in to the Maria C, my wife and I were greeted by a friendly staff and a beautiful property. The hotel is getting to the point where it needs a refresh, but the wear in this case kind of added to the old girl's ambience. We were surprised to find upon our return one morning, that the King and Queen of Spain had been staying in the hotel. We watched the Queen leave to her car and than zipped downstairs to sit in the lobby with a glass of wine. Sure enough the King and another chap came walking by. The King nodded to us as he passed. What fun!
