Well located high up above Banyuls with lovely panorama. I had a delightful Sea-Side room, one of the few with a tiled floor. Decent restaurant, excellent local wines, especially Les Tines. Kind service, maybe a bit understaffed. Value for money, taking account this is an expensive area. Would return.

Hotel is very nice but a bit dated. The staff are generally very nice, cheerful and all speak good English. The food in the restaurant for dinner is good but breakfast a bit disappointing. The chambermaid's standards could be higher and they need to be more aware of guests.

This older hotel serves amazing food! We enjoyed the set 4 course menu which includes an extensive selection from cheese trolley. The rooms are pleasant and clean but very dated. The wifi is intermittent. The pool could be cleaner. But a good base if you travelling this way.

Perched on a cliff top overlooking the Mediterranean this hotel is in a wonderful location affording panoramic views that are simply stunning. The restaurant is superb serving gourmet dishes at very reasonable prices. A wonderful find.

I am thinking this was a top resort in the 60s/70s. It still has some quality features, and is very clean, just dated. Pleasant walk to downtown area for dinner, good breakfast value at hotel. Nice and professional staff. Absolutely beautiful views- I hope to come back!

Stayed here for 1 night in October. First impressions are of a hotel slightly stuck in the past, but this isn't always a bad thing. The hotel is a crescent shape which gives most rooms really good views of the town below and the sea. The room again slightly dated but excellent value with a lovely balcony. Dinner was served...

We stayed one night on our way to the Pyrenees. We had a balcony room with a view of the village and the sea. Spectacular! We chose the half board because we were tired and the food in the restaurant was tasty and the service very good. The room itself was so-so but the view made up for it. The... More

My wife and I have stayed at 12 different hotels in 4 countries during our 5-week vacation in Europe. Of those, I would rank Le Catalan among the top 3 hotels. We stayed here 3 nights. We had a spacious room on the top floor with a beautiful view of the Mediterranean. The beds were comfortable and the room was... More

We stayed here for one night whilst touring on our motorbikes. Lovely caring staff with a great welcome, great room, wonderful views, and breakfast was plentiful and varied. Plenty of parking. Just beware if you are using sat nav - if it leads you to a steep, rough road, you need to make a u turn and take the next... More

Situated about 1 kilometres from town centre on a height which provides a great view of both town and sea. Plenty of parking available. Inside is a pleasant reception area and a good restaurant /dining room. Had lunch on arrival which was very tasty and served quickly.
