“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

My husband and I spent four nights at Hotel Blau Mar and could not have been more pleased. Our room (number 16) was spacious and we especially enjoyed sitting out on the patio which overlooked the pool. The breakfasts were excellent - good variety. The location was perfect as we could walk into the village, each night, for dinner. The coastal walk is a must. Stay here - you won't be disappointed!

I visited Llafranc 46 years ago and it hasn't changed, A lovely unspoilt village, The hotel has been built since my first visit and sits on the hill above Llafranc...only a 7 minute walk to a lovely sandy beach. Each room has a stunning view of the bay. No 8 was spacious and attractive. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Excellent breakfast taken on a terrace..in beautiful warm sunshine ...a lovely way to spend a few days at the beginning of November. Great coastal footpaths, so need to use the car. All very peaceful and relaxing.

We had 5 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The room no 16 was spacious and comfortable with a patio overlooking the view. The pool area is lovely. The breakfast was excellent. Staff helpful. You will need a car if you want to get around as it is high up on the hill, you can walk into the town. There was not a lot in the town a chemist, supermarket and restaurants. As it was late in the season not all were open but you can always find something open. Neighbouring towns are not too far and worth visiting. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Room 16 I think it's worth paying for a sea view.

A friendly and relaxing hotel for a short stay. Very clean and nicely decorated and furnished which was done very recently. Location is a little outside the village centre with a nice downhill, 5 minute walk to the closest restaurants, a little more challenging to walk back afterwards.

Only small thing that could be improved is the WIFI - very slow and not effective to use at all

Had a wonderful 3 night stay in this fabulous small hotel on the costa brava. Everything is first class from the service to the wonderful accommodation. When you first arrive the exterior is possibly a little underwhelming but once inside you will soon change your opinion. Friendly, efficient service in wonderful surroundings makes for a tranquil and enjoyable experience. Book this hotel with full confidence that you will not be disappointed.

We had 3 nights at this lovely hotel. The staff were friendly and the overall decor and rooms were first class. The pool and view exceptional. The only downside is the steep climb back up from town. We took the car down in the end No evening meal just snacks Breakfast on the terrace was lovely, This area of the Costa Brava is really very special. There are some lovely walks. Highly recommend this hotel

Excellent boutique hotel in the lovely town of Llafranc. Great individually styled rooms, spacious, and with a balcony overlooking the sea. The pool area was large with plenty of sun loungers. The breakfast on the terrace was excellent with a good choice of food. The all day snacks were very good quality. Good restaurant options in the town for the evening although the hill at the end is a challenge but the wine certainly helps. Overall a fantastic holiday and we will be returning next year.
