We got a recommendation from a good friend to stay here, who raves about this property and I can see the reasons as to why. The hotel can be seen from a distance perched upon a hill just outside the city of Bisbal d'Emporda. No wonder the castle was built there and certainly fits the purpose. So anyways, we arrived...

When you pull up to the hotel you can not fail to be impressed. Hubby did good with his surprise choice on on our month long trip through Northern Spain. Check in and reception was a great experience and was shown to our room in the newer part of the hotel and he also mentioned there was a wedding the... More

This is a magnificent hotel in a beautiful setting to which we return annually (we stayed for a week in June). Attention to detail is outstanding and many features are exquisite. Service is first rate and is provided effortlessly by staff who are both professional and friendly. Not surprisingly the hotel is now a sought after wedding destination but would... More

We got married in Castel d'Emporda in June. Arranging the whole wedding from abroad was made so easy by the expert help of Albert and his wonderfully capable staff. We had the most amazing day. We chose to have our ceremony in the Olive Garden, with Terry. It was gorgeous. The location, food and service were amazing. I would not... More

We stayed 4 nights in the Emporda Castle. The receptionist was very friendly, took us to have a look at all the facilities around. But also mentioned that the great (and large) outdoor restaurant will be occupied by a wedding dinner. For other guests of the hotel, a place was reserved downstairs, near to the hotel entrance. We had an... More

I agree with all the previous reviews about the focus on the weddings. Pro - location and view Cons -there was a wedding reception on the day we arrived so they DID NOT give us the room reserved which was in the castle itself which is why we booked and drove all this way in the first place; we were...

We were expecting an amazing stay here and it certainly is a great location but the two nights we were here there were 2 weddings on so the staff had their focus on the weddings and not on the other guests. It was difficult to access the bar because of the weddings and our dinner had to be served away... More

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants in the region. Unfortunately the amazing Dutch chef they had for three years went and unfortunately they changed the whole service stuff and put in a new maître. What a pity. That combined with the fact that the event business and wedding business seams to be there main or only focus,... More

We stayed here as part of a walking holiday booked in the UK. This is a review of the restaurant only. Firstly we informed them we are vegetarian which can as an unwelcome surprise to the head waiter. Fortunately on this evening the special rice dish was vegetarian and was very good. Night two they were more prepared for vegetarian... More
