It’s been dubbed “the Spanish Downton” and has all the credentials: a stunning setting, elegant aristocrats and an abundance of servants who don’t know their place. The difference is that it’s about a luxury hotel with a devious widow at the helm. And if Julian Fellowes’s plotting occasionally seems a little far-fetched,
’s double-dealing will make your head spin.
In this bumper first episode, set in 1905, the dashing Julio gets a job as a waiter to investigate another servant’s disappearance, and also finds time to bat his eyelashes at a comely heiress. Deliciously moreish if you can overlook the melodrama.
Julio arrives at a luxury hotel to visit his chambermaid sister - only to discover she vanished months before. Determined to uncover the truth, he lands a job at the establishment and begins an investigation into the lives of the staff and the guests - falling for an heiress in the process. Spanish drama set in the early 20th century, starring Yon Gonzalez.
