“Don't be deceived by the austere 60s architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

This hotel is warm and welcoming, the staff could not be more attentive or courteous and it has real family feel to it. The food is locally sourced and beautifully cooked and presented. What really takes some beating is the location - on a tiny headland and overlooking the small beach of Cala Almadrava, it is also just on the edge of the stunning Cap de Creus National Park, with access to excellent walking territory. Closer to home the grounds of the hotel are immaculate and the imaginative landscaping means you can always find a little corner to hide in when or if you ever tire of sitting next to the pools. Rooms are spacious and although everywhere is spotlessly clean, every day the cleaning staff beaver away adding yet more shine. A somewhat irregular local bus service connects the hotel to the town of Roses about 5km away or you can walk along the coastal path in less than an hour. It was a pleasure to stay there - well done to Jordi and his team.

I cannot rate this hotel too highly. Where do I start? First, the rooms were large as was the balcony which had good reclining chairs and teak table. The room had 2 armchairs and the bathroom had a toilet which could be used separately from the bathroom. The hotel is in a chain which has the word 'silence' in it and sure enough it was lovely and quiet day and night. Don't know what it is like in the high season, but then we would not travel then.
Then the restaurant: We were there with Great Rail Journeys and had the Table d'hote menu - with a sweet trolley and a cheese trolley - bliss! The food was excellent and most attractively presented. The waiters were extremely well-trained, efficient and pleasant. The house wines were also excellent.
The grounds were beautiful, terraced and with stunning views as had most of the rooms. The swimming pool was huge with a smaller pool as well. Loungers were to be found not just at the pool but on many of the terraces and the way the hotel is situated, you could choose sun or shade.
The most important thing I must mention though is the caring and helpful attitude of the manager and all the staff. My husband was ill for several days and the attention and help we received was just amazing. We are both so grateful to them all, (as to our holiday rep Linda who was extremely helpful and attentive.
It was not a problem for us, but perhaps I should mention that it is quite a climb from the pool or even more from the lovely beach up to the hotel.
Thank you again Jordi and your staff for all you did for us.

Situated on a rocky promontory with rooms overlooking a small sandy bay on one side and the wide Gulf of Roses on the others, this superb hotel has a delightful variety of places to sit/lounge (shade or sun) on numerous garden terraces and has a large (25m) swimming pool. Our bedroom (for 9 nights) was spacious with masses of storage and excellent bathroom. Great choice of delicious food and extensive breakfast. Efficient, very friendly and smart staff and management (family owners) with good English. Ample parking and a local bus/hotel shuttle hourly into Roses centre (3km). Excellent; best we have stayed in. The only downside was the lack of tea/coffee making equipment in the bedroom.

Room Tip: Best views/balcony from Gulf of Roses side

High standards in presentation. Gardens well maintained, neat and green, gardener s come every day. Sunbathe or relax by the pool or in the gardens with the smell of Jasmine in the air. Staff are very pleasant and Courteous. They are independent, run by same family since founded. Rooms with air conditioning and balcony. Huge breakfast choice. Superb aspect/views, amenities. Could not be bettered. Private access to a lovely beach. Swimming pool with own bar. Tapas and lunches excellent. We came with Great Rail and would certainly come again!

Almadraba Park Hotel- Roses
A decent hotel in a prime location with fantastic views, used as a back drop for wedding receptions which can be noisy for a few hours if you have a sea view room as the terrace is right below you. Hotel staffs are friendly and helpful. Very good club sandwich and apple pie at the terrace bar. Smoking is allowed on the terrace of your room and at the terrace bar which are open to the atmosphere. Minibar well stocked and decent prices. Tax/IVA is 10% on the bill, plus a city tax of 0.99 euros per night per person over 16.
Downsides are- noise from room to room, no soundproofing; and wardrobes and cupboards have no felt or mechanical suppression to eliminate this at least? The TV has no facility for dual language or if it does the menu button function has been disabled? The in room safe will not accept even a notebook computer? No tea and coffee facilities in room? No evidence of room service offered?
Overall a pleasant two day stay would have stayed a third, but for the downsides mentioned above.

Room Tip: Ask if there is a wedding reception due or plan to be out when there is one, very noisy

Staff is very service friendly at this hotel. And helped us both with early check in, and late checkout.
I have defiantly had better bed in other hotels. But that is really the only thing I can put my finger on. This is a very good hotel! I do believe though that it can be quite crowded during high season!

Room Tip: Choose a room with sea view!
