This is a really fantastic place to stay. Yes it has some disadvantages but where else could you lie in bed and look straight out to sea just like a cabin are on an ocean liner. The rooms are small but the incredible views from them overrides this. There's no other hotel in Collioure that has the opportunity to see... More

As promised, excellent views from the room and terrace, though both were smaller than expected and always in the shade as the hotel faces North, with hills behind. During our four night stay, we very rarely saw any other guests or staff, for that matter, though these last were pleasant and helpful. Views from the small terraces dotted around the... More

More a Motel than Hotel. Built on rocks above Coullier but facing out to sea more than the Harbour. Best views from the rock terraces but these of limited access and only in sunlight from afternoon. Occasional sewage smells encountered from our tiny balcony that bordered the cocktail terrace where some guests gathered post drinks ( ie all night )... More

Stayed 2 nights Sep 2013. Standard rooms are basic (though more than adequate) - but the view and situation far far outweighs this. Clean, good bathrooms, comfortable beds and staff very friendly and helpful despite my poor French. Terraces looking out over the bay are wonderful. For lunch we opted to go back to the hotel and have a salad... More

We've made five trips to Collioure over the last 10 years, always staying at Les Caranques, but I haven't written a review since the renovations and new ownership a few years ago. We love Collioure and we love Les Caranques still. The website does an accurate job of showing viewers what the hotel and location are like, but nothing can... More

The hotel makes the most of its amazing position set on to the rocks across the bay from Collioure and overlooking the famous tower. For the price it is amazing value, and the service way above expectations for a 2 or 3 star hotel. You have your choice of views from a series of terraces, including one with loungers and... More

As everyone else has stated, the views here are fantastic. I believe every room has a view, too. You get a tiny balcony (the rooms aren't big, or at least ours wasn't), and there's an enclosed breakfast area that also looks out on the water, etc. There are a number of levels of terrace for sitting out and and sunbathing...

Although a little out of town this is a really superb location. The owners have really made the most of the location with terraces at different levels overloking the sea and the different beaches and chateau of Collioure. They offer a Tapas menu from 13.00 - 20.00 and also serve wines and beers. The temptation is to sit up all... More

Staying in Les Caranques was one of the best two or three highlights of a six week driving trip in France and Spain. We came here based on the Tripadvisor reviews; we were not disappointed. We reserved our room in French on the hotel website, although we could have phoned, as the reception staff speak English. Hylaric showed us to... More

As others have pointed out, this hotel is all about its location - what a view! It's far from cheap to stay there, but for once, money does buy happiness. It's not just the view over to the harbour of Collioure, but the sight of waves outside one's window - in fact, from the bed itself! On the less positive... More
