“One of the best hotels I've ever stayed at”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2008

We stayed here in summer 2007 and it was so absolutely fantastic I can barely describe it. It is a slightly older hotel but you feel like you are in one of the Sean Connery James Bond movies. The formal restaurant in the hotel is fantastic (it has a michelin star), and the casual restaurants are good too. Breakfast was plentiful and the view just cannot be beat. We had a great ocean-view room that was clean and quiet with a lovely bath. It's not a luxurious as an American Four Seasons, but those don't have balconies over the Med either! The service was beyond wonderful.

Speakiing of which, the Med is cold there in the early summer but warms up well by late summer. The hotel has a private cove - look closely at the sand there - it is made up of millions of tiny tiny uncrushed shells. You can also walk down a path to the public beach which is close by.

Overall, I would say the Vistabella in Roses is one of the best hotels I have every stayed at.

Stayed June 2007

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Hotel Vistabella is situated on top of a small cliff in the bay of Roses, between Canyelles and the Bonifaci beach. The last one receives its name from the calm waters that are protected from the “Tramuntana” (strong North wind).The placement is magical, its distance from the city center creates an unthinkable peacefulness during the summer months. It is the ideal hotel for a quick getaway or to spend your holidays. “In Roses the best sunsets of the whole country can be seen…”, wrote Josep Pla, a famous writer. These sunsets together with the spectacular views of the Gulf of Roses award a unique environment.The gastronomy is very privileged in the hotel, with a wide offer, where the client will find different restaurants to choose from. ... more   less
