We spent one night in Cadaques in late August. Once we found the parking area -turn right into what looks like a drain just before the Repsol petrol station as a previous reviewer has mentioned - it is a short walk to the hotel. Checking in was easy but disinterested. Disinterest from the staff seemed to be the norm at... More

Let's start with the good part: 50 euro per person per night in August is a great price; the hotel is less than 200 meters from the beach and the complementary breakfast is very good and the rooms are clean. On the other end the room was very basic, the toilette broke three times in 4 days and quite often... More

After some trouble finding the Octavia (sat nav gets very confused!) it's well worth it when you get there. Relatively small hotel, just 4 floors, we were on the first and our room, along with some others, had a limited view of the waterfront. More face the car park or a pleasant courtyard at the rear. The room was big... More

Our family of 4 stayed here one night and there was a king size bed and two rollout beds in the room and there was still plenty of room in there to put our things. The bathrooms was very large and seemed to have been brand new. We looked out onto the courtyard but it was pretty quiet (maybe because... More

We wanted to stay for only one night in Cadaques and asked for last minuted prices. We thought we had a good deal, but the morning after we could not get that deal anymore and had to pay a lot more. The staff barely speaks English or French, so there was no discussion possible. The breakfast was really poor.

We just spent a week at Hotel Octavia on a family holiday in Cadaques. Whilst it isn't a luxury hotel, the rooms are large, very clean, air conditioned and the position of the hotel is really central. The girl on reception was helpful and the buffet breakfasts were very good. For a well priced family holiday, I would strongly recommend

This hotel is indeed in a great location as others have said, with ample free parking on the street. The rooms are big, but not very clean. The entire hotel smells so strongly of cigarette smoke it is almost nauseating. We slept with the patio doors open to reduce the smell, but then had to deal with street noise. There... More

Cadaques is a gorgeous little town so much quieter and slower paced than other Costa Bravo destinations. The Octavia Hotel is ideally placed to take advantage of everything this lovely place has to offer. Less than 200 metres to the Mediteranean and main shopping area, the hotel has a supermarket directly across the road. The rooms are spacious, terrazzo floored... More

My wife and I visited Cadaques last spring in order to see the Dali House in PortLligat. While some guidebooks say that it really takes a car to get there, we took the bus from Barcelona and had no problem. It let us off in the public square a couple of winding blocks away. As others have commented, the layout... More

Stayed for two nights with our two sons 12 and 9yrs as part of a road trip around Catalonia. Wasn't expecting much as had read the reviews and had a tough time finding a place with a quadruple room on budget in Cadaques. Usually stay in 4 star but no options on budget in this town! However, very pleasantly surprised.... More
