A basic hotel, nothing fancy, but clean and good. La Fosca is a wonderful place and this is one of the few hotels there. You can easily walk between here and Palamós (20 min). The Restaurant, with the traditional fluorescent white lights, food ok a bit overcooked. What really surprised us was the breakfast, which was the best we had... More

A straight forward hotel that has what you need at a decent price. What makes it something extra is brilliant service and an equally brilliant breakfast. Still run by the same family that once built the place. People who take pride in what they do.

We stayed here as part of a walking holiday. At first glance the hotel looks merely functional, but it's actually quite comfortable, and our room at the side had a nice terrace and electric blinds. The whole thing has a real family feel and the service was excellent and food very good thanks to some good recommendations. Drinks were good... More

To be honest, 3,5 star would be more real than 3, but I have to make a choice! In itself the hotel is fine, and indeed my room overlooking the pool and outside dinner place was very good. Indeed, there is also a beach nearby and an old castle which is nice. BUT, it is in residential neighbourhood, with not... More

We stayed here as part of a walking holiday. At first glance the hotel looks a little old and shabby, but it's actually quite comfortable, and the rooms at the back overlooking the outdoor dining area are the best. The pool area is really nice for relaxing. The whole thing has a real personal, family feel to it. The best... More

I only stayed one night, so I can't comment in depth, but it seemed a fairly anonymous place. Even though it's not that big, it had that large-hotel feeling of being a business rather than a family concern. I have no complaints: everything worked, the room was clean and modern, service at reception was brisk and efficient. I just think... More

The hotel is ideally located a couple of streets back from the beach in a quiet street. We were there for 3 nights to relax on the beach and the hotel was ideal for this. The room wasn't very big but fine for a few nights. The shower was great, it's over a bath. There was plenty of hot water.... More

This hotel was being built in 1974 which is when I last visited the lovely quiet village of La Fosca with my parents and my brothers. We were young boys at the time and all learned to snorkel on the beautiful safe, gently sloping La Fosca beach with its interesting rocky edges and coast path. The hotel did not disappoint.... More

What a little gem we found in Catalonia! This hotel is family run with an exceptionally friendly and helpful staff team. The hotel is spotlessly clean and serviced well by a competent and dedicated team. Our room was spacious and comfortable and we were grateful for the air conditioning and the balcony. The outdoor pool was also a great asset... More
