Five years have passed since we stayed at this hotel. We enjoyed lunch in its delightful atmosphere and would gladly return to stay. But there is one drawback which the management could easily overcome. There are no railings on the steep entrance steps, nor on the steps down to the terrace. It is not just that we are less sprightly... More

Room was nice and good size with good quality furniture. Bathroon bit small and basic for the room. Pool is lovely and set in hillside with nice views. Restaurant is... More

It's very rare for me to unfortunately give a less than positive review. I'm always objective and honest however Hotel El Convent is a hotel of contrasts so it's worth checking where you'd be staying if you book this.

We stayed in this hotel for 6 nights as we explored the Costa Brava. Begur was the perfect location for this and El Convent was a perfect choice.I liked it because you could walk to a beautiful Costa Brava beach. This was great as parking is rather an issue in this area. The hotel property is gorgeous with a pool.... More

This hotel's location up the road from the beach at Sa Riera and close to Begur is superb. Plus it is a renovated 17th century convent that sits on beautiful grounds with a pool and among trees. The staff, a bit of a skeleton crew, were friendly and very helpful. One of the wait staff also drives the van, and... More

First the positives. The property is in a beautiful setting, and the servers in the bar and restaurant are good. Friendly, personable and helpful. The bed was comfortable and the bed linens nice. That's about it for good. The bathroom in our room was full of mold--tiles, walls, ceiling. The bathroom fan was as loud as a propellor plane. Upholstery... More

Perfect place to stay for 3-4 days minimum, and to disconnect from the world. No crowds, noises and guests walking around. Excellent food, service and location. If I had to say something I'd change: drinks are not allowed at the swimming pool

My family and I stayed here late June. There were no family suites, but 2 rooms next to each other were a perfect fit. The design of this hotel is very cool, with beautiful stone, candles, and charm. Rooms are basic but very clean. This place has a lot of simple beauty, in a very relaxing environment. A buffet breakfast... More

We stayed for 3 days in this beautiful charming hotel. It's an oasis of rest and calmness. The staff is really friendly and does a great job serving the guests. To chill out there is a large pool in the garden. Besides that you can visit the sea coast which is located only 300m from the hotel. 10 minute walk.... More
