“Great sundeck”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Fortunately we booked a special price offer for this five star hotel, because for the price we paid everything was really good. Nevertheless, we would have been disappointed if we had paid more. Our room was more of a 80ies 5 star style, quite big, also a big bathroom,but horrible furniture and dirty bed sheets. The sun deck was fantastic and we spent 3 very relaxed days here. The hotel staff is very friendly and apart from the room being old fashioned we cannot really complain.

Dear "angi k",

We thank you for your visit and your kind word about our property.

We would like to inform you that the room rates vary quite a lot depending on the season, room type, nights, demand, special offers, etc.

We would also like to inform you that we have a total of 8 different room categories to choose, which sometimes makes it difficult to choose the right option for your stay. The rooms are mainly divided into the traditional Mediterranean style rooms and the Modern style rooms.

We deeply apologize about the dirty bed sheets, which should not happen. Please next time, when such things happen, let our front-desk staff know in order to solve this problem immediately.

We would be very happy to welcome you again at Vistabella in the future, maybe in one of our new modern style rooms, which you will surely prefer.

Kind regards,

The Vistabella Team

The position is great,right on the beach with wonderful views.excellent restaurants with plenty of choice.The staff were a delight with and very considerate and eager to assist you in any way.will certainly return next summer.If there was one improvement they could make would be a swimming pool but not sure they would have room,sea is very near.

Room Tip: a room with sea view is a must

Dear "geoffreyt,

We thank you for your kind word about our property.
The whole team at Vistabella is very pleased to hear that you enjoyed the hotel and the restaurants.

We inform you that unfortunately there is no space for an outside swimming pool at the moment, but as you already mentioned, we do have a small indoor swimming pool, an outdoor jacuzzi (whirlpool) and direct access to the sea.

Looking forward to welcome you again at Vistabella in the future.

Kind regards,

We knew from our internet search that this hotel had direct access to the beach and sea but we didn’t expect finding ourselves living right at the Sea. We arrived late in the evening after a long flight and more than two hours driving. We were greeted by a very friendly staff that showed us to our room and even a late snack. All the stress fell from us after a peaceful sleep and discovering that the sun was shining through our windows in the morning. Intrigued we went to the balcony and were amazed by the view that presented to us: a beautiful sunrise while Spanish fisher boats leave the ports for their daily catch.
Greeted by a generous breakfast buffet on the main terrace we went to discover this hotel. The friendly and discreet staff knows exactly when to make itself noticeable, and the atmosphere that surrounds you is perfect to unwind from the daily stress. We particularly loved the big chill-out sofa/beds on the terrace, perfect for sunbathing. We also took advantage of the Spa/Wellness area, although small it offers everything you need. This hotel make you feel at home being away from home, which is exactly what we were looking for.

My wife & I spent 5 nights at the Vistabella.We had a suite. Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived.The rooms were spacious, modern & very clean.The bed was as comfortable as own own.The interior design was 1st class.We were made to feel right at home.Everybody who works at this hotel from our experience cares about your comfort & will happily accommodate anything you may need.
The view from our balcony was unbelievable.I took the best pictures from there.It was so relaxing and wonderful to sit out there with a drink,coffee or breakfast and enjoy the view.

The Michelin star restaurant was fantastic.The experience was memorable again with unbelievable views.People from all over the world were here, enjoying themselves.It was obvious.
The other restaurant we really enjoyed was Balcó de Mar.Very good food, excellent service,very nice staff, beautiful views & reasonable.
The spa was great, excellent massages & facials.Beautiful atmosphere, everywhere has an outstanding view.

We will be going back the same time next year without a doubt. We can't wait.

We have been to many Hotels in many countries.Vistabella is on top of the list !!!!!.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We spent 6 days at this charming hotel in the warm Mediterranean sunshine. We had chosen one of the new rooms, a Penthouse suite, which was one of the best we had ever stayed in - a stunning view from the huge balcony and a vast room with all the facilities you would expect including a great walk-in shower.
The staff in the hotel could not have been more natural and welcoming. This felt like warm and genuine personal service, totally unlike the more forced politeness and obsequiousness in many larger 5 star premises. Breakfast on the beautiful terrace was a great way to start the day. The semi-private beach is a little stony but a relaxing place to spend a few hours; the next beach along at Canyelles is only a 5 minute walk and has a sandy and larger swimming area.
All in all, if you chose one of the newer rooms, you will be in for a great time if you stay here.

Very comfortable and clean hotel with amazing views and great sized balconies. Super friendly, caring Staff will really make you feel at home. Restaurants within this hotel were simply delicious. Nice and almost private beach, indoor pool and solarium terrace with whirlpool. It is a romantic hotel but works perfectly for families.

Stayed here for 4 nights in July with our 2 children. It is a beautiful spot with great views. The staff are extremely helpful and couldn't do enough for us. There are some good restaurants in the hotel including one with a Michelin star! It's definitely a great place to relax. The room was very big, not the most up-to-date decor but extremely clean and comfortable for a family of 4. There is no outdoor pool (only indoor) but there are 2 hot-tubs outside. It's definitely worth a trip to Cap de Creus for the spectacular views and scenery.

The Hotel Vistabella is situated on top of a small cliff in the bay of Roses, between Canyelles and the Bonifaci beach.
