This was an easy and affordable hotel option near the airport. Rooms are large, clean and modern. Beautiful views of the ocean from certain rooms. Our taxi driver refused to drive down the road that leads to the hotel because he said it was one way / complicated but we had no problem getting a hotel the next day.

I spent one night as part of a business meeting. Admittedly perhaps insufficient for an objective review. Yet the hotel left a good impression: modern design; clean, uncluttered rooms, friendly staff. The garden and pool area are wonderful and the beach is just outside the private grounds. The hotel is in a residential area so not much in way of... More

I have stayed at this hotel in Gava several times. Its perfectly situated right on the beach and is 15 min drive to BCN. It is very quiet although I have not been in peak summer season and I really like the restaurant which is a 2 min walk from the hotel. All in this is MY place to stay... More

I participated in a workshop which took place in the hotel. The hotel looks new, it has a near beautiful beach, service is excellent. The rooms are broad, very comfortable. Service is excellent, although out of season the room service (food) is somehow limited.

We chose this hotel because it was close to the airport for our flight the next day. The cab ride was about 15€ to the airport. We got in late so we decided to try the hotel restaurant.
