“Rocamar at Cadaques”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Cadaques is a fantastic place, and hotel Rocamar is situated with a nice view over this small pueblo.
The hotel is nicely located, good parking space, nice pool, and within walking distance of the center.
Rooms are spacious, most of them with nice view of the ocean, clean, but with some limited furniture.

A welcoming 'home from home' within walking distance of the very busy Cadaques. Small balcony worth the extra for the view. Lovely position up on a headland with excellent views of sea and village from many rooms and the enormous terrace where you can take a sangria in the afternoon. Graceful public spaces with facilities for chess etc and lots of nooks for conversation. Indoor and outdoor pool. Good position for enjoying a walk to the Cala Nans lighthouse. Excellent choice at breakfast but the best praise is for the restaurant. Short, well planned, well-prepared, well-presented, good value table d'hote menus served by polite but friendly staff. Excellent Catalan wines (sadly not available in UK).
Ramps for wheelchair users rather inconvenient for others in a few places, but they do the job.

Room Tip: Sea views are worth it and a small balcony makes the view your own.

after long journey from Andorra this hotel was heaven for us. Clean rooms, nice food , perfect location. I ve never forget breakfast very early in the morning with perfect Cadaques view. this hotel has some home made cakes and bagels in the morning. after breakfast you can enjoy beutiful sun at the terrace. hotel is not new so thats why garden is amazing. may be iys not a cheap hotel but this hotel is not extremely expensive also.

Room Tip: we stayed at back side rooms and it was really quite.

Although Cadaques is an expensive place in terms of accommodation the better-named-for-an-Ibiza-club scene "Rocamar" hotel really does cost too much. It's a shame because the views are splendid, the facilities could be fantastic and with some new decor and some staff who act like they actually give a damn the "Rocamar" experience could once again match what it feels like it probably was inthe 1980s. Perhaps back then should you complain about the sewer stench emanating from the bathroom they may actually have dealt with it as opposed to merely paying lip service to your complaint! If you do end up here and there are much better value places in Cadaques, don't bother with breakfast and head straight in to town for a decent cafe con leche and pan tumaca.

Room Tip: Views are nice but make sure you ask for one!

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.
