My partner and I just spent three delightful days staying at Hotel Eetu in Fornells, a beautiful little cove in the Costa Brava.
Our plan was to cycle each day, which we managed, despite starting with a tramontana blowing up to 50km/hour! During the highest winds, we drove to to Emporium, to take in the amazing Greek / Roman ruins. Fascinating!
Each day started with a wonderful breakfast with lots of fresh fruit and helpful staff. The owners, who are extremely passionate and superbly knowledgeable about the region, provided us with great suggestions beyond what the guidebooks cover. By each evening we were hungry for a good meal and the chef at Hotel Eetu didn't disappoint! The one evening we ventured down the hill to Hotel Aguablava's Restaurant, we were sadly let down by pretentious service and poor quality.
In addition to the friendly, helpful owners and staff, we also appreciated:
• fantastic showers with great pressure and loads of h/w
• large, well furnished room
• world-class bed
• safe and mini-bar in the room
• sea view (room 312)
• loads of indoor, secure parking
All in all we were delighted with our stay and would highly recommend Hotel Eetu for adults seeking tasteful lodgings in the georgeous Costa Brava.
