Located an easy walk between the older and newer parts of town, this is a large, excellently-run hotel with extensive grounds, dominated by a huge pool and and terrace. Reception staff were welcoming, and I was delighted with the room, which glittered with cleanliness and even smelt good. The bathroom would put many four star properties to shame. The only... More

The Nieves Mar lives up to the best reviews, we can't fault it. We are there at the moment, June 26th 2014. The staff, all the staff are superb, as are the rooms, the food, the location, just the best hotel and for the price it is fantastic value. We cannot think of anything at all that is missing except... More

Just back from our 4th year stay at the Nieves Mar. We had a very warm welcome from Anna and Marcel which made us feel very privileged to be staying at this family run hotel. This was the first year we had hired a car and the driving experience from airport to hotel and exploring areas such as L'estartit and... More

This is a family owned hotel, run to the highest standards. Staff are efficient and friendly and very obliging. Breakfast and pool are first rate. Our sea view suite was a dream. In addition free wifi and free, safe parking. Alpha plus for this place!

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.
