This homely hotel is very welcoming and relaxing. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and cleaned well daily. We had a room with just a shower and no bath which suited us (512). The breakfast by the pool was plentiful and set you up for the day. We ate mainly in the Old Town just... More

We arrived and were welcomed warmly by the staff and a pleasant room overlooking the pool and the bay of the main beach. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. The pool and play facilities in the hotel are really quite impressive for a relatively small hotel. We ate a couple of lunches by the pool and the food for... More

Location on rugged sea front between main beach and the old town makes it a great place to stay as convenient for both. Room overlooked the sea and the hotel's large salt water swimming pool. Generous breakfast. Clean well kept facilities and friendly staff. Would happily return.

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

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!
