“Nice view, decent hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

This is an absolutely decent hotel, not more, not less. It is not spectacular in any way, but it is clean and well position, with a wonderful sea view. I was there in low season, which may have been the reason for a bit shabby feel. Other than that, the place is walking distance from magnificent Cadaques center, so one should not ask for more. Recommendable place.

I don't understand the bad reviews. I think our room was quite nice, had a lovely view, and we could walk into town easily. The front desk staff was incredibly helpful even with the language barrier. We even extended our stay an extra night because we loved it so much. I just recommended it to a friend and I would stay there again! It's not "cheap" price wise but I wouldn't expect any hotel in Cadaques to be...have you seen this place!? It's like heaven. Make sure you check out Anita's for an authentic family style meal. The bars and restaurants right on the beach are just blah and overpriced.

We enjoyed the quiet and slow pace at this lovely hotel situated just a few minute walk from town. Our room, 610, had a terrific view of Cadaquez and the sea. What was not good? The bed is uncomfortable and there is a light on the side of the building that shown right into our patio and room. The breakfast each morning was terrific. And the service and people friendly and helpful.

The location is wonderful, but everything else is just "ok". Breakfast was good, with lots of choice, but dinner was rather challenging!! Our room was big, with a huge bed and a balcony, which had a "small" sea view, but was perfect. My biggest complaint would be the noise; there was a family of small elephants staying in the room above us, which was unfortunate, as the sound carried everywhere due to all the wonderful tiles on the floors.

I really enjoyed our one night stay in off-season here. The view to the sea from the little balcony from our room was fantastic. It was very peaceful and relaxing, as all we could hear was the birds in the morning, the sound of the sea and the wind. The hotel and the rooms are very clean. The hotel is a bit outside from the village on a rock, but you can easily reach the village within 15 minutes walking.
And yes, the view to Cadaques from the restaurant at breakfast was really stunning. The breakfast buffet had a wide selection of breads, cold meat, cheese, juices, croissants etc. Everything was well presented.
Its a great place to stay if you want some peace and quiet, but still want to be near the beautiful village of Cadaques. Would come back here anytime again.

Very professional in a discreet and traditional way by obliging staff. When so many places indulge in showmanship, you forget how nice it is when the service is unobtrusive yet done properly without fuss. Tremendous view of the bay and worth the short walk from the town. As it happened our visit coincided with poor weather so we didn't have the chance to enjoy the garden and its views.

The Hotel Rocamar is an experience as much as a hotel. A stunning and privileged location with walking trails directly behind the hotel and "that view" of Cadaqués from the dining room. Its simplicity and refusal to be bent to a modern style are also great contributing factors to its beauty.
Didn't have dinner there but the breakfast was excellent. A place to go and dream. I'm already looking forward to my return visit.
