“Amazing Views and Warm Hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

The location of the hotel and view from our room was incredible. The Inn is right across the street from the beach and at the foot of the old fort. When I first saw the photos of the rooms, I thought a beach was digitally added to the windows of the photos, but that view is the real deal! The inn-keeper is very friendly and welcoming and there is a conveniently located restaurant on the bottom level of the inn. Parking is tough - you'll have to park outside of the historic part of town and hike to the hotel (we recommend a public lot near the bus station that has a reasonable daily fee). The rooms are basic, but clean and homey. Location is very convenient for exploring the old part of the town and of course, easy access to the beach!

This hotel has a beautiful sea view and is located practically on the beach, right under the old town wall. The owner and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, small and very simple, but sufficient. The bathroom could be larger. You can hardly move inside. There also no place to hang your wet things from the beach. The walls are rather thin and you can hear everything what your neighbours do. Our neighbours were quite loud and argued constantly. The breakfast was poor compared with other hotels we had visited. There were no eggs, only a small variety of cheese and yoghurt didn't looked inviting. But the coffee was good, the croissant and the waiters very friendly. All in all, our short stay there was quite enjoyable.

Dear Madam,

thank you for your review that we really apreciate.

I'ts absolutely true that rooms are not big. Actually we mention this point to everybody who is interested in booking. The hotel was fish factory years ago and the building is from the 17th century. This hotel is not the best option if you are looking for large rooms.

About bathrooms, they are also small like the rest, but they have all you need, like hairdryer and soap server, also if you were looking more carefully, in the shower wall there is rope to put your wet clothes.

We are very sorry you didn't enjoy breakfast because is one of the hotel service which is more apreciate for guests, especially the home made yoghourt and cakes.

Finally, we are probably simple because we try to keep the same atmosphere like our old fishfactory was. There are plenty of new, sofisticated and and full equiped hotels with large rooms in town. We belong to a family hotels category that every year are less in town.


Thank you again for your visit.

We loved this hotel! The location is along the beach with views from many of the rooms. We especially liked room 107, which has a small balcony overlooking the beach. If you are on a budget, try room 101, which they describe as small, but we found it to be perfectly adequate (though the bed is against one wall.) The breakfast, which was included in the room rate, was very nice with croissants, rolls, quiche and baked sweet breads as well as cheeses, jams, juice, and coffee/tea, all of which was served at outdoor tables overlooking the beach.
The beach was very crowded (we were there in August) but the cove is beautiful and we liked the walk through the old town with winding streets and restaurants and shops.
I would not recommend dinner at the hotel, though; we tried it because it was recommended in Lonely Planet, but it was mediocre and there were many other options for eating outdoors along the promenade that looked better.

Room Tip: Room 107 for the small balcony- really nice. Room 101 if you are on a tight budget- they recommend...

Dear guest,

thank you for your review that helps us to work better in the future.

We are really surprise about your opinion about the bar, where we served some home made tapas, because the same person who prepare breakfast is also in the kitchen to cook the tapas. So, if you enjoy the quiche and the home made cakes in the morning, we understand you could apreciate the rest of the food that is made with the same rigor.

We thank you again for your visit and we hope you will visit again very soon.

Just got back from Cap d'Or. What a delightful surprise for a small, inexpensive beachfront hotel. Proprietor was lovely and accomodating. Rooms were quaint and clean. We enjoyed the "main balcony room" right atop the beach. Sweet little breakfast included. Hotel is mere steps from the town's landmark medieval castle, almost nestled into the base, with pathway providing lovely evening stroll and beautiful views. All in all, a very pleasant stay.

We stayed for two nights in room 101 at Cap D'or and had a great time. Although the room was small it was cheaper than the others and had everything we needed apart from the sea view. We were very happy with the facilities which included an ensuite and tv. The room and bathroom were immaculately clean and a lovely breakfast was also included in the price that included Croissant, Bread rolls, cake, fruit, yoghurt, juices and more! I thoroughly recommend this hotel which is directly below the old town walls and on the beach front. the owners are absolutely lovely!

Room Tip: Ask for a seaview as the beach is lovely!

Dear guest,

thank you for your nice review.

We are really happy to know your enjoyed your stay in the small 101. Between the family we call this room the "bohemian room", because years ago this room was occupy for long time with a writer who write a book.

We hope you could visit the hotel again and enjoy one bigger room with seaside.

Thanks again.

I recently stayed at the Hotel Cap Dor for a week, the hotel was perfectly positioned on the beach and within the castle walls. With the most fantastic views over the beach and the ocean this place is a real find. Prices are probably a premium but to be honest the hotel is spotless, service is superb and the breakfast included in the price is very good ! Rooms are fairly compact but have everything you need and are very comfortable, maid service is everyday which is a bonus.
I would definately return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Room 104 is the best !!!
