Back again! Perfect temperatures - nice & quiet - pool warm. All in all just right! Shame they shut on 7 October or I could be tempted back! Rather a pain that so many local restaurants have shut for the season - but at least you can park everywhere & no need to book tables!

We stayed here as part of a wedding party. Lovely location overlooking the sea and 5 mins from bars/shops/beach. Room was lovely and spacious with balcony and seaview. Extra pillows/blankets in the wardrobe, plenty of storage and a mini fridge with water. Beds were very comfy. Lifts were a bit tempermenral but we were only on the 3rd floor. Breakfast... More

We've stayed here, on and off, for 10 years, so we obviously like it! The staff are delightful and we have got to the stage of swapping family photos! The rooms are always spotlessly clean, I think ALL have a pool/sea view and even when the hotel is full it's quiet! The breakfast by the pool is terrific and goes... More

Driving around l'escala looking for a hotel with a nice pool to placate my 2 young boys, we stumbled upon this 70's style looking hotel, and i am glad we did. The pool was big and clean, service was very attentive, rooms were clean, breakfast was well sorted and items were fresh. Overall a pleasant exoerience.

Our trip to L'Escala was everything we were looking forward to and more! Having never visited the Costa Brava, we stumbled upon the seaside town of L'Escala and the Hotel Nieves Mar on the internet. The family run hotel is on the sea front and harks back to the glory days of such hotels of the 70's and '80's. The... More

Spent one night here following a family wedding. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and ironed out minor problems very quickly. Breakfast was continental although there were scrambled eggs and sausages available. There was plenty of things to chose from including fresh fruit so no complaints there. I went for a swim but could not find a shower that... More

Can't say enough good things about this family-owned hotel steeped in the tradition of old world service but with modern attitudes. Amazing location right on the sea but moments from the old town, wonderful views from ample terrace, lovely large pool with necessary glass wind guard. We enjoyed our fun and spirited bartendress, but were truly impressed when proprietress Roser... More

This was our third visit and the hotel just gets better. The staff are so helpful and courteous. The dining experience in the restaurant was very pleasureable and the food was superb. Our room was very clean and comfortable with wonderful views over the bay. Highly recommend a walk to the harbour before breakfast to watch the fishing boats come... More

Great friendly hotel in an excellent position right on the sea. There is a short walk to a beach (10 min) with plenty of unspoilt beaches just outside the town. Great views, good pool and lots of easy parking in the grounds. The restaurant is of a high standard serving good food, if you have not booked half board there... More

We were really comfortable at this hotel. Right from when we checked in. The Receptionist was cheerful, helpful and pleasant, as were the majority of the staff. We had a lovely, large, bedroom room on the 5th floor with a fantastic view over L'Escala bay. The lounge area was very relaxing with attentive service. We would have given this review... More
