Our family love the restaurant for gatherings, and informal celebrations. The thing is that in the past it was better. The daily menu is usually the best option, as the selection is great and the price is decent. As the place is a little upscale the price of the 3 course menu is about 20 euros, with wine and taxes...

A car is required to get you here and to the main town of Palamos if you wanted to go out for dinner however the restaurant adjacent to the hotel is superb. The beach is a 5 minute drive away and is beautiful, golden sand and clear water. You can also use one of the hotel bikes and it takes... More

The Malcontenta is situated just outside the charming tourist village Palamos ( nice harbour with cruiseship terminal) on a large countryside plot with nice and large swimmingpool. The reception is friendly and correct. The rooms are large and typically decorated. In a 2 bed room you might expect at least 2 easy chairs, however in our room there was a... More

Thus was a nice place although not what we were expecting. Our friend from Barcelona suggested we stay here on our trio to Costa Brava. This is the Spanish equivalent of a very small American Canyon Ranch. It is about a 30 minute hike to the beach. Very quiet and relaxing with a wonderful pool, bikes to use and yoga.... More

must be one of the most relaxing hotels that i have visited,staff friendly and very obliging,quite unique furniture and so comfortable.I wouldn`t say it for children as not to much going on,but maybe i am not correct so another opinion may be different,just very quiet.Great restaurant and will certainly revisit next year.

Breakfast was served on a beautiful outdoor terrace, and including a delicious array of cheese, yogurt, fresh fruit, bread, and more. We were... More

A lovely classy and luxurious hotel. We had a 1st floor suite with a terrace. The room was absolutely fantastic with lovely design features. We thought that the hotel was nearer the beach than it turned out to be, but this was made up for the fact that the pool is magnificent. The restaurant is independent from the hotel and... More

We were not staying at this hotel but in a villa nearby and spotted it on the way to the beach at Castell. Went on a Monday evening. Not many diners. This is a classy restaurant, probably one of the best in the area. We all had fish dishes and without exception they were all first class. The service and... More

We spent two nights in a wonderful first floor room overlooking the gardens.From the moment we handed over our bikes(we were on a 7 day cycling trip around the region)we felt we were guests in a wonderful country house. We retreated to the pool to wash off the dust and loved the walk through the gardens. Some hotels do luxury... More

We had a fantastic lunch in the restaurant enjoying some of the best local food we have eaten in Catalonia. My wife's Lemon Meringue Pie was probably the tastiest desert we have had in all of our years in Spain. I will return soon to make sure that I order the correct desert next time!
