A perfectly relaxed, professional, charming, well positioned, well equipped, spotlessly clean and small hotel. Not overly child friendly. Book sea view rooms. Book car parking if needed. Try eating at the pool side from 13hr00 to 15hr00. Nice breakfast room, no restaurant (many nearby though). No cooking smells. The management and staff (including the smiling room maids) were all friendly... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights at the Playa Sol at the beginning of June. I can only reiterate the previous excellent reviews. We felt immediately at ease as soon as we walked into the hotel. Everything was perfect including the outdoor heated swimming pool, delicious breakfasts and professional, friendly staff. Cadaques a stunning seaside village - a... More

Yes, it's a rule, and yes, it's in writing. But, come on, as a long-time client of the good-but-not-great Hotel Playa Sol, and someone whose friends suddenly aren't coming to spain, so had to cancel the two rooms at Hotel Playa Sol 11 rather than the required 12 days before the reservation, i am being charged 200 euros. 200 euros!...

We have just returned from 10 days at this lovely hotel. We could not recommend it highly enough. We had a room with a sea view and large balcony. My abiding memory of the holiday was leaning on the balcony looking vacantly at the sea and watching people going by. It was a superb view of the whole bay. Breakfast... More

A terrific hotel with friendly, helpful staff. Rooms are nicely designed, comfortable and well maintained. Ours had a balcony with a view of the garden and pool. The pool area is awesome and a great place recover from a busy day or just chill. A good and plentiful breakfast is served daily and there are small bars (for guests) at... More

If you can summon up the courage to drive the hairpin bends Cadaques rewards you with a unique experience. Everything about the town is just fabulous. The views, the tranquillity, the restaurants and the history. It all rewards you on every street corner and your camera will never be still. The Hotel Playa Sol is 4 star luxury and has... More

This hotel and this town are jewels! We drove up from Barcelona and spent 2 glorious sun-drenched days, and food-inspired evenings here. The setting overlooks the beautiful harbor (be sure to ask for a harborview room, it is well worth it to sit on your private balcony and watching the sun set over the blue Mediterranean. It has a lovely... More

Beautiful hotel, gorgeous view, great location in the small seaside town of Cadaques. We had ocean side rooms with fantastic views. Rooms were not large but comfortable and tastefully appointed. They have a nice pool but we did not use as it was a bit too cool in mid May. Wifi worked (which it doesn't so well in many small... More

We came here for one night only and decided spontaneously to extend our stay for another night and I used the lounge to get some work done. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The hotel is in a prime location right on the bay with spectacular views facing the sunset over the mountains. A lot of restaurants and bars... More

We only stayed one night, but I would have definitely stayed longer if I could! Cadaques is a small town about a 2 hour drive from Barcelona (on a very windy road at the end). It is a small town with gorgeous views. The pictures do not do this place justice. Hotel Playa Sol is small, but has everything you... More
