This hotel may be over fifty years old but thanks to its recent refresh, you could not tell. The hotel throughout is very tastefully modernised with a subtle nautical theme and everywhere seems very comfortable (from the bar through to the bedrooms), which feels like it's designed to keep guests warm and comfortable when the weather outside is dreadful. But this is not Ireland, it's sunny, hot Spain but I can imagine this comes in useful in the winter, cooler months.
When we visited it was around 20-24 degrees so we got to make the most of our balcony room on the first floor. The sun arrived on the balcony shortly after noon and stayed until early evening so there is plenty of opportunity to use it if you pay that little bit extra.
The bedrooms are very comfortable and ours had a bath and separate shower.
The hotel bends around a little cove with a beach on the hotel's doorstep and faces across the little bay to Cadaques, which is a very pleasant three minute walk around the bay. Whitewashed Cadaques is stock full of restaurants, a fair proportion of which are top class, and the town is busy enough all day and night.
We were there for three days, parked the car up and forgot about for three days as there is plenty to do just around Cadaques but if you wanted to see more of the area, there is plenty of interesting places around.
The only difficulty that we had in the hotel was accessing the free wireless internet which may have been due to an issue with the router in our room but we had similar issues downstairs on various devices. Maybe a one-off glitch but not the end of the world, given what was around us.
Breakfast was very good in the hotel including croquettes and churros!! And the breakfast room overlooked the little beach.
The hotel's amenities in April is not fully open as the pool, sauna and tennis courts etc were not open but we knew that beforehand as it is flagged on the website. Those facilities looked good and I can imagine would be full in the high season anyway.
