Thank you for your opinion. We are pleased to know that your stay in Rocamar was pleasant. We hope to have again the pleasure of your visit in the next future. In this case we kindly recommend you to book a Superior room with sea view which is a nice room with a large terrace overlooking the sea or if you prefer our Suite of 80 m2. also with a large terrace and a splendid view. There is a Restaurant in Cadaques hired by three kitchen staff from El Bulli. Our Restaurant Sa Conca is actually considered one of the best in town.
