This was our third highly enjoyable visit to the Rosa; a hotel with real character!
It's a small hotel in the centre of Begur, developed over the years from several adjacent buildings. This means that it rambles in a quirky kind of way, and occasionally confuses you as you make your way around. It has a lift, a rooftop sunbathing area, a basement with table tennis and pool tables, a bar and a private parking area. The owners are developing a spa next door to the hotel, which is something to look forward to next year.
Our room was, as usual, bright and comfortable, spotlessly clean and fully equipped. I don't remember an en-suite spa bath on previous visits, but we had one this time. My only criticism would be that the hotel's wifi didn't quite reach us.
The hotel and a restaurant across the alleyway are owned by the same family, and it's here you get the Rosa's superb breakfast. Certainly it's the best we have ever had in Europe, with all the usual cold stuff, plus hot dishes, freshly made bread and pastries, and a great fruit selection.
The only word of warning I would offer about the Rosa is that it's a bit hard to find if arriving in Begur by car, especially at night. This is because you can't drive up to the front door, which is in a pedestrian zone right in the centre of town. The easiest option is to drive towards the centre, park where you can, and reconnoitre the area on foot. It's not a big town and you'll quickly find the hotel, and get directions from them to the best places to park, or to their own car park.
Finally, as many other reviewers have said, what gives the Rosa its special appeal is its people. Nothing is too much trouble for them, and their personalities contribute a huge amount to the Rosa's character. Thanks to them we had another great stay at their hotel, and will certainly be back again soon.
