I love this beautiful old hotel. This is where Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardiner stayed when they were filming in Spain. We held our daughters wedding there with 125 guests and it was wonderful. The beds have linen sheets, antiques abound the place. We stayed in a beautiful suite overlooking the ocean. Service was impeccable, this lovely hotel is a... More

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. It was October so it was low season and there were not many people there but we paid for the corner suite with the balcony and were delighted. The furnishings were beautiful, the bathroom was completely updated and the view was... More

This is a gorgeous setting on the Costa Brava in Span for this decidedly five star resort hotel. Everything about it is delightful from the staff, the magnificent breakfast , the fine linen sheets on the comfortable beds to the antiques liberally situated in the halls and public spaces. We had a mini suite that had a lovely large terrace... More

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. It's such a shame that the fantastic features have not been modernly enhanced...they have done it in the bedrooms but... More

We spent 4 nights at the hotel last August. We paid approx. EUR 350 per night (breakfast not included, charged at an additional EUR 42 per day). Never again. Here are the reasons: - Reason 1: No private beach, instead just access to the public beach nearby; however, finding a spot to lay down your towel after 10:00 is simply... More
