Our last night our walking holiday was here. It was a huge surprise to find such an unusual hotel in this location. A really friendly welcome was just what we needed at the end of our walk and that's why we received. Everything I the hotel was a mixture of new and traditional. The result was a very friendly family... More

Dear Alan: thank you very much for your excellent and detailed review. I don't need to be humble if I say that I love my job, and when this happens the visitors of my hotel notice the positive sensations and feelings that you commented. Thanks again and although we met thanks to Catalan Adventures, I invite you to come walking... More

Words fail me--this place is too special to use descriptions like fabulous or stunning, or even warm and welcoming, though it's all that. Mostly, it was just, well, just, uh, fabulous, and stunning and warm and welcoming. I've stayed in much more expensive hotels, and in fancier hotels, and in bigger hotels, but none better than this one. I could... More

Wow Erick!!! Now it is me that I am stunned. What a nice review of the hotel facilities, of my employers, of me! You commented "the words fail to describe...". Do you want to know the key word of your text? "Special". I connect with all that is special and you too. It appears that some people notice when something... More

This is among the best hotels I have encountered anywhere. The first 3 nights of a cycling tour had my wife and I staying here and we were so impressed with everything about the hotel. Many other reviews have highlighted excellent points, I want to add that the dinners can be considered fine dining. Merce is charming and the Inn... More

Thank you very much for your excellent review. I am amazed to read that my place is among the best hotels you have encountered anywhere. I am honestly very grateful to share this with others visitors. But the thing which had left me stunned is the following: "She treats you like a long lost friend", so, as a special friend... More

This was quite a surprise to my husband and I who are always last minute travelers. The owner Mercedes is a most friendly and helpful host to this beautiful and well located hotel. The place is wonderfully decorated and the terrace has a breathtaking view. Located in a hill, provides a panoramic view of the Bay of Roses and the... More

The breakfast was especially varied and delicious, and the owner is very helpful and gave good advice. Palau-Saverdera is a small village, I didn't find the village itself so interesting, but the location is favorable, if you are interested in both culture (not least Salvador Dalí) and nature. Don't miss Cap de Creu (National Park and the easternmost point of... More

We stayed at Niu de Sol as part of a cycling holiday; the room was lovely and had a little balcony; there were little touches that made it super-comfortable, including coffee, tea and snacks in the room. Also, the breakfast is great with really good coffee and fresh pastries, as well as delicious meats, fruit and cheeses. We also chose... More

Stayed at this lovely hotel for 3 nights in April. Agree with all the positive comments about the friendly atmosphere, the quality of the accommodation and food and the helpfulness of the proprietor. I found it also to be ideally located betwixt hills and plain and a stones throw away from the beautiful coast of the Cap de Creus. Opportunities... More

Only stayed one night in this lovely small hotel. Everything about the hotel is tastefully done. It has a quirky layout, terraces to sit and enjoy the views and the rooms are just so attractive. The buffet breakfast was especially good with magic local honey. The owner could not have been more hospitable. Just wish we had stayed more than... More

Excellent host, room, location and breakfast. Highly recommend. Great village and recommend a meal at the Civic Centre. Close to the wonderful northeast tip of Spain which has spectacular views and a great drive getting there.

This is a great little hotel, ideal for walking in the hills of the Cap de Creus peninsular and a short trip to Roses as well. An especially good breakfast, with really friendly hospitality. We weren't sure the walk route down to Roses so the owner came with us to show the way and provide great company as well. Out... More
