“Can't Fault It”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

The Nieves Mar lives up to the best reviews, we can't fault it. We are there at the moment, June 26th 2014. The staff, all the staff are superb, as are the rooms, the food, the location, just the best hotel and for the price it is fantastic value.
We cannot think of anything at all that is missing except perhaps tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The rooms are spotless as is the hotel, it has a warm and friendly feel to it, yet you feel special too.
I've been lucky enough to stay in some top class hotels, for example a couple of Fairmont's in Canada, and whilst their service is impeccable, it lacks that genuine personal touch you receive at the Nieves Mar.
Ten out of ten for this hotel and their staff. I would definitely return here, and recommend it to others

Room Tip: As far as I can see they all have superb sea views, ours is on the 5th floor overlooking the sea and...

Just back from our 4th year stay at the Nieves Mar. We had a very warm welcome from Anna and Marcel which made us feel very privileged to be staying at this family run hotel. This was the first year we had hired a car and the driving experience from airport to hotel and exploring areas such as L'estartit and Empuriabrava was great fun. The roads are of a high standard and the many roundabouts well signposted. There is ample car parking at the hotel and it was great to be able to see the car from our room. We ate most nights in the Hotel restaurant where the food and service was excellent. The house white wine was superb and if not finished was waiting for us at our table the next night. Our room was clean and comfortable and the cleaning service impeccable. We have already booked for next year so thank you to all.

This is a family owned hotel, run to the highest standards. Staff are efficient and friendly and very obliging. Breakfast and pool are first rate. Our sea view suite was a dream. In addition free wifi and free, safe parking. Alpha plus for this place!

Back again! Perfect temperatures - nice & quiet - pool warm. All in all just right! Shame they shut on 7 October or I could be tempted back!
Rather a pain that so many local restaurants have shut for the season - but at least you can park everywhere & no need to book tables!

We stayed here as part of a wedding party. Lovely location overlooking the sea and 5 mins from bars/shops/beach. Room was lovely and spacious with balcony and seaview. Extra pillows/blankets in the wardrobe, plenty of storage and a mini fridge with water. Beds were very comfy. Lifts were a bit tempermenral but we were only on the 3rd floor. Breakfast had lots of choice with the usual cereals/yogurts/breads etc and plenty of.
