Every aspect of our stay at Can Xiquet was exemplary. The room was impeccable. The views from the balconies are panoramic and beautiful. The hotel service is faultless. The restaurant is fabulous in every way. We want to use it as a base if we ever get to spend a week exploring Catalonia and the Pyrenees. If you're just passing... More

This was an amazing hotel with an amazing staff. I was on a self guided walking tour so only one night here. The very large jacuzzi tub was wonderful after a 7 hours of walking. My dinner on the patio was perfect. Ilook forward to returning for a few nights!

I rarely, if ever, give five stars, but this is the closest to a 5 star hotel you could wish for. I hope the monitors of this site move its category into "hotels" not "bed and breakfasts" since this small, luxury hotel has all the amenities you could wish for a short, high class, peaceful and picturesque stay. The restaurant... More

Booked in here while driving from France to Spain. This hotel popped up as just over border into Spain and looked ok. Had good reviews so booked it. Got here tired and fairly late, got a warm welcome from receptionist who took us to our room. Decent room with a mini bar and balcony with mountain views. Lovely. Had dinner... More

My husband, two young daughters and I just spent three wonderful nights at this gem of a hotel. Can Xiquet is a small and stylish, yet cozy, boutique hotel (only 15 rooms, though I understand five more will be added) located on a hill above the charming little village of Cantallops, with views of the mountains, Mediterranean sea and the...

I can only think the last reviewer had an alternative motive in his review. The hotel was excellent in every respect, the food was excellent and the rooms very comfortable. I have stayed in many hundreds of hotels worldwide and this is certainly one of the better 4 star hotels. The staff were excellent except the manager who I think... More

Can Xiquet is a nice hotel in a lovely remote setting but it has a TERRIBLE RESTAURANT. Remote is the key word here because there is nothing nearby to see or do and the nearest town, La Jonquera, is basically a giant truck stop with a multitude of prostitutes working at every roundabout. We tried the Can Xiquet restaurant for... More

I cannot speak too highly of the hotel facilities and its staff. We were greeted after a long walk with a welcoming smile and the offer of a cold beer, both of which really hit the spot. Our bags had already been taken to our room (this simple act is being a rarity) which proved to be absolutely wonderful, albeit... More

I have given this hotel a four star rating mainly due to the location and views from the rooms. We have stayed here many many times on our way down to the south of Spain by car over the years and it has only been in the last two visits that we have noticed a change, I now understand from... More
