“Totally relaxing week.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We stayed at the Blau Mar for 7 nights at the end of June and it lived up to all our expectations and more. Would like to say a special thanks to Martha who was absolutely brilliant, giving us great advise about places to explore and who was never too busy to help. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and at home in this cosy little hotel. The hotel doesn't do evening meals but the snacks are lovely for a light lunch and there's lots of restaurants in the village. Llafrancs beach is great and the coastal walks are stunning. There is a steep hill to get back to the hotel but its not that bad and after a couple of drinks you don't notice it too much! And really the hotel couldn't be in a better place for peace and quiet and stunning views. So glad we picked this hotel. Will definately return.

Room Tip: There isn't a bad room in the hotel. All with sea view. The rooms to the left of reception as yo...

A delightful, privately run hotel in the most beautiful area of the Costa Brava. Rooms excellent, service and ambience first class. Quiet and relaxing with stunning views over the bay of Llafranc. Will certainly return.

Hotel Blau Mar is a little gem in a beautiful part of Spain. Service is first class, very attentive & patient to any customer concern. They have a nice, simple food selection which was great for our lunch around the pool and the view is just incredible. This part of Spain is lovely and the hotel is just a short walk down to the beach, bars and restaurants of Llafranc. Would recommend to anyone coming to visit this area of Spain.

I would come back again just to stay at this wonderful hotel and experience again the lovely atmosphere of Llanfranc and the delightful places to eat. Hotel Blau Mar is in a beautiful & tranquil setting with a stunning view especially from the infinity pool. Everywhere is spotless inside and out. The rooms are spacious each with outside space. The inclusive breakfast is a banquet of tastiness which we all looked forward to. The staff were lovely and the service friendly and prompt. Nothing was a problem. Additional things that you expect not to be great in a hotel, were great, including superfast WIFI from all area's within the grounds, enough sun beds to go around and the superb breakfast. A few minutes pleasant walk down the hill brings you to the local amenities and the pretty spotless beach. A walk around the coastal path provides more stunning views and there are plenty of great places to eat. Be sure to visit the El far light house, venue and views. Just writing this makes me want to be back there!

This hotel ticks all the boxes .... excellent location, clean, beautiful rooms, friendly staff and a stunning view. I have to admit I wasn't sure what to expect from this hotel, it was our first time also to Llafranc so I didn't know the area. We were very pleasantly surprised. We had a room on the ground floor which I preferred because you could pop back to your room easily by going through the patio door. The rooms on the second floor have a better view and the rooms on the right hand side of the hotel, looking at it with your back to the pool, have the sun in the evening.
The pool area is excellent and the hotel serves snacks/light meals and drinks all day (I don't think they serve food on a night time, but I could be wrong). The outside terrace/bar is beautiful and a lovely place to have a drink before going out for dinner and again on your return! Most of the guests were repeat visitors, which says a lot. It's about a 5 - 10 minute walk into Llafranc, the only draw back is there's a rather steep hill on the way back but its right at the end of the route back, so only a short haul up the hill ! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for peace and relaxation. And Llafranc is a beautiful little place with a surprising amount of good restaurants.
