“This place rocked my socks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Beautiful grounds and splendid accommodation with great food and superb staff. Possibly the best bath tub I have ever been in! I would love to come back and stay here - hire a car and drive around the countryside. Beautiful countryside... the only place I have ever seen a entire rainbow from beginning to end - on land.

Really great place. The kindness of the staff was sometimes unbelievable (like they call you by name and remember every detail), the food was so amazing (and I mean, I have quite high stardards), with shocking combinations like chocolate mousse and olive oil (by itself a reason to go there), with swimming pool, volleyball field and lot of woods around for relaxing walks. And when you need some time to think big picture you can just walk up to see the view from the castle tower.

This castle has been spectacularly maintained and improved to house an outstanding restaurant, and heated pool with brilliant views of the sunset over the countryside. It would be perfect for a wedding, conference, or weekend getaway. An enchanting blend of modern luxury within a historic rural setting.

What more could I ask? Beautiful scenery, professional yet kind staff and gorgeous food!

Great castle with all the convenience of modern amenities -- heated swimming pool, beautiful bathtubs!

This place great for group booking, but also suitable for the individuals who want a quite getaway from the city and relax.

By far the best place I've every stayed. Would recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip: There are rooms with bathtubs that overlook the countryside -- try to see if you can look for those.

We have just finished an amazing 7 day stay at Castell d'Emporda, where every single piece of detail was perfect! From the rooms, to the food, to the service of taking care of 70 of us!

The experience was truly amazing! I will be returning with my wife again soon!

Room Tip: All rooms looked amazing! But there is something special about the rooms in the castle!

A fantastic hotel with really great staff - and the food is simply outstanding with el bulli style nitrogen deserts and fantastic bass and monkfish mains. Nice pool, great views and there is also a tennis courts just down the hill. We would definitely come back again - highly recommended.
