We have stayed in 5 star hotels for years around the world. The front desk manager was rude for no reason. We hide our wealth when we travel for protection, and clearly they judge their clients based on how ostentatious they are. Big mistake. Rooms are so so, pool is very salty, gym is poor, dinner is in a bad... More

This was our fourth stay in Gavina, for a week, and once again it was just fantastic. This time we brought my 86 year old mother, who was entranced by Gavina as we have been on pour previous stays.

Stunning! We had a room with a view over the sea and a little patio where we drank wine and chatted. The room was spacious and attractive. We slept with the windows open to hear the sea, and slept soundly! The view from the pool over the sea is also breathtaking. We ate lunch at the pool side cafe and... More

We loved the Hostal de la Gavina! We were there last fall and absolutely fell in love with it.

Good bedrooms with lovely bathroom...and they have kept the old furniture which adds to the historic value. This is a great property spoiled by the lack of investment in the public areas....it's like an old age home ...as a hotel.
