Finally we reach the Univers Hotel in Roses for the final 6 nights of our holiday.
We choose this hotel having stayed for a week in 2013.
Nothing had changed in a year. It is still relaxing and pleasant (and lots of French guests) as it was a year ago.
The staff were all the same and pleasant as before.
We stayed B&B this time as we wanted to eat out in the evenings. Breakfast was a fair choice as you would expect from a 3* hotel in Spain. Wish they had croissant's though but never mind.
Pool was nice. Always sun loungers free at any time of day.
Big choice of restaurants in Roses. The food seems to have a slightly different twist than the southern Costa Brava/Barcelona resorts. I think it is more geared up to the French tastes and only being 15 miles from France that would seem about right. They get a lot of French tourists in Roses and the French language is widely spoken.
All this makes for a great experience and we enjoyed it very much.
The beach is superb for families with young children. It is clear blue sea with soft sand.
The sea is shelving. You can walk out 30ft and still only be up to your knees. It was great for my 2 year old daughter. Coastguards line the beach in towers just in case and it has a Blue flag rating.
I would recommend this hotel for a relaxing break in a resort which is a fairly lively but certainly not rowdy. Has a wonderful cuisine and culture. And wonderful people to go with it.
I fabulous end to our 14 night in the Catalan/Costa Brava region of Spain, which started at Barcelona Airport and ended at Gerona Airport.
We will be back again in the near future.
