First of all - be aware that in September, when we were in Roses, most of the people were french retirees, which can ruin the vacation a bit.
When we checked-in, we got a nice gift of local wine and olive oil (used the code from TripAdvisor).
Plus, the reception desk is occupied 24 hours a day, which is convenient.
The soap and shampoo were quality L'Occitane products.
We had some trouble finding the hotel using a car with GPS. After asking the receptionist, we were directed to a nearby free parking lot.
Our room was very small with sounds of flushing water all night.
The food at the breakfast was average, although the fresh yogurt was delicious - the waiters could not speak English at all, so we had trouble ordering our eggs.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Carmen is a tribute to Carmen & Josep, who first started welcoming travellers in their humble home in the early 1950's. The three buildings that make up the property have been recently refurbished and turned into a contemporary mediterranean hotel with a peaceful and delicate design that evoques those times. The house is located in the center of town among locals and their daily lives, and just 50m from the beach and Roses' magnificent sunset promenade. There are various rooms types available for guests, ranging from large rooms with balconies and terrasses, to smaller ones with windows. What all rooms have in common are great ergonomic mattresses & pillows, WiFi, a laptop sized safe, minibar, satelite TV, plus l'Occitane amenities and a haidryer in the bathroom. All rounded up with a nice breakfast with plenty of local products and freshly made coffee. For travellers arriving by car a garage is available as well. ... more less
