I've had guests stay at La Gavina over the past 10 yrs. It's a classic, Catalan styled hotel next to the Mediterranean Sea. Although se of the rooms could use a bit of updating there are several things that make up for that: - Service: Outstanding in every way. The people at this hotel do the maximum to make your...

This hotel is completely stuck in the past. And had it not been for some charm that comes with such a rich history I would have given it 1 star. The rooms are small, in a terrible state, bad beds, awful sheets. And so I could go on. The service is okay but not 5 star worthy. And yet somehow... More

My motto has always been to be objective and write the review as it is. I have mixed feelings about this hotel especially after a great start in Barcelona & Cadaques.

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.
