Stayed here with young baby. Garden is huge with nice pool and enough shade. Beaches and town are nearby. Breakfast could't be better. For lunch and dinner it's best to hit town. Only the bathrooms (showers) need an update. Nice touch is a selection of daily international newspapers.

The food is excellent with a truly local influence.The hotel is ideally located for all local historic sites,attractions beaches... More

We stayed off season, therefore it was very calm. Perfect location, lovely atmosphere and very friendly and helpful staff. Really a relaxing stay. Nice and clean room with a small balcony overlooking the pool area. Free parking and WiFi. Breakfast was delicious too. Easy walking distance (downhill) from the nice Begur beach.

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. You may also want to read the review posted by senior reviewer "Chicag0AB" on the hotel. We booked a two night... More

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
