We were looking for a good hotel as a starting point for some excursions in the costa brava region. We booked the junior suite to have some extra luxuries.
The room was spacious with a very nice terrace. I liked the tile floor, as it feels cooler under your feet. The bathroom was very comfortable and nice looking. Also, the available shampoo, soap, shower gel and hydrating gel all smelled really good.
At night, the room was quiet, even with the window opened as the hotel is located in a small street without a lot of bars or shops. The small street is also a minor inconvenience as you cannot park your car in front of the hotel to do some (un)loading. Well you can, but you block the street while doing so. Parking is available from the hotel (paid), but is not next to the hotel. You can also park for free at a 5 minutes walking distance, which is what we did.
The staff was friendly and helpful, especially the chef at breakfast. He was also the one that spoke very well English and French. The other staff spoke English well enough, except for one girl.
The WiFi access was not free, but not expensive either. I only used it for looking up the weather, so I cannot comment on the speed.
Breakfast was very nice, and had more than enough choice. Rolls, toast, bread, fruit, yoghurt, cereals, ... I can also recommend the coffee, which was very good!
All in all, we liked this hotel. The room was modern looking, spacious and quiet, and we very much liked the breakfast!
