In many ways this hotel ticks the important boxes.
It's wonderfully sited 10 minutes' stroll from Cadaques's central waterfront area, and only 30 minutes from Dali's house in Port Lligat.
Finding the hotel is easy once you notice a sign to it, at the first roundabout you come to after the mountain road approaching Cadaques. This sign takes you to the left side of the bay, along a narrow, and occasionally worrying, one way waterside road. The hotel is signposted up a turning to the left, and turns out to be in a quiet residential area.
It is spotlessly clean, has a nice pool, helpful staff, comfortable, nicely decorated rooms (although a mirror in the room as well as the bathroom would be a useful add-on) and free wifi (although not in our room).
Breakfast was OK, but the fruit salad was out of a can and I did not feel that the mid-season price of €9.50 per person was really justified for what was available.
Although we thought that the Blaumar was a bit lacking in 'character', we will undoubtedly be back because it's a very comfortable place to stay in an utterly irresistible resort.
