This hotel is beautifully renovated in an old building with lots of marble, glass and polished wood. Our room was comfortable and decorated in an original fashion with a great bathroom. We visited in May when the town is very quiet. Staff were very friendly. The restaurant is a short distance away but breakfast was served in the same building... More

Not the most welcoming of hotels. Made sure we paid on the spot before we got our rooms which had been booked using booking.com. Dreadful smells of drains in both rooms; we were 2 couples. Pointed it out at reception but did not get a satisfactory answer. We went to the lounge and had to leave it as well due... More

Hi we stayed here as part of trip around Europe this summer, the hotel is fine in the sense of clean and tidy and the breakfast was enjoyable. However, the reception staff on check in were not very helpful the vehicle parking is some distance away so your vehicle and any belongings are not readily accessible. The air conditioning isnt...

Dear guest, we are sorry to hear your experience wasn't great due to technical issues with the wi-fi, we will work on it. The Hotel is located nearby the beach and Port de la Selva is not a big town, so the parking lot is a little away from the hotel, but you can ask anytime for your car, no... More

We were on a walking holiday so arrived hot and tired after a long walk. The air conditioning was not working and because of noisy guests we had to move rooms. Two nights there with no air con meant we had little or no sleep. The receptionist was unhelpful and unsympathetic. Although the hotel is promoting itself as a spa... More

Lovely room (apartment) Fabulous view. Outstanding weather. What more could we want? The season was just about to start when we stayed here so the Village was fairly quiet. A must see are the Cuevas del Drach - Cavern of the Dragon. Breathtaking.

We were booked into here as part of a walking holiday. When we arrived we were asked o leave our boots in a special area which seems perfectly justified. The receptionist spoke excellent English, as did the one the following day. The art works although not to everyone's taste add a quirky something to the hotel. The room was very... More

This hotel is on the Catalonian coast of Spain. Room is average size in European standards. The continental breakfast is ample and a good start before a hike. The people working in the hotel are very friendly and helpful. They have tea and coffee in the sitting room, all day. Dinner in the hotel restaurant was delicious and they provided... More

After a long and tiring walk we arrived at this somewhat eccentric art festooned hotel. After being instructed to shed our walking boots for slippers we were permitted to access our lovely room with a nice view and a state of the art bathroom with a much appreciated whirlpool bath. Although the hotel does have a quite extraordinary dining room... More

Stayed here at start and end of a walking trip. The rooms on both nights were comfortable, clean, and perfectly adequate for our needs. We wanted to eat at the hotel's beachside restaurant but this seemed to be an usual request by the response.
