“Great all rounder”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

Well worth a visit. Lovely location with super view over the seafront, beach and sea. Good overall menu with a wide choice so there should be something for everyone. If not, then the adjoining pizza and pasta bar are worth a look too. The staff are attentive and friendly without being overbearing. When the food arrives you will not be disappointed. Well executed traditional Catalonian cuisine.

Initially allocated a room at the back of the hotel, James and Marina assisted us in our request for a sea-facing room despite the hotel being quite full. It was lovely falling asleep and waking to the sounds of the waves on the beach.

The bedroom was immaculate, the bathroom spotless. It would have been preferable to have a double bed but this is often not the case on the continent. No matter, this is a minor comment.

We were more than happy to choose to eat at the Terrassa Terramar on our first evening, having meandered along the length of the beachfront. The food was delightful - we both had Beef Wellington, and a bottle of the red wine served at the Oscar's ceremony earlier this year. The service was equally enjoyable and the experience as a whole, from the moment unexpected glasses of cava were brought to the table, was a thoroughly pleasurable one.

The hotel excel at the finer points - it may be three-star in name, but the attention to detail and the service lift it above that level. The flat roof has been turned into a suntrap with plenty of loungers - we enjoyed the mid-evening sunshine - and the hotel is happy to look after baggage if you are leaving the town late on your day of departure.

There is no parking at the hotel but we were directed to a quiet road only a couple of hundred metres away where the car sat safely for the duration of our stay.

Offering great value for money and a wonderful location, we will happily stay there again when next we visit Llafranc.

Room Tip: Sea view is a must. 206 has a double terrace. As mentioned elsewhere, first floor (rooms 1xx) will o...

I agree with all the superlatives that are mentioned about the Hotel Terramar. Staff, food(all meals), pricing, ambience with the sea, and even the ability to bring your own wine from a visit to a local winery to dinner. All combined make this the preferable choice in Llafranc. IF a room in another hotel at a similar price is appointed better(and that would be arguable) the Terramar's other superlatives would still make it the better choice.

Room Tip: 102 or 104 if solo for the sea and least cost, 107 and up if a couple. I prefer the lower rooms, but...

Yet another lovely stay at this hotel. The staff are extremely friendly and it was a lovely surprise to receive a half bottle of Cava in our room as we generally stay here around 3 times a year. The buffet breakfast is splendid but we never manage to take full advantage! Cheese, pate, sausage, fruits, yoghurts, pastries, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, breads, tomatoes, ham etc I could go on!! A freshly squeezed orange machine and Cava if you want plus espresso coffee.
We will return in 3 weeks.

Room Tip: Get a room with sea view it's lovely to relax and look out to sea

Hotel is nice, location is great but the food in the restaurant really makes the difference! We think it is just refurbished, really nice seats at the fire place, would be even better if you could eat there. Good wine menu for a nice price.

Fantastic little hotel. We stayed in a family room with unbeatable sea view. It was fantastic to fall asleep listening to the waves ! The hotel is spotless and the size of the room / bathroom was very decent. The food at the restaurant is excellent. We had lunch and breakfast. Breakfast is really worth it. Fantastic buffet with the freshest products. We will certainly return.

Nice hotel at a beautiful beach with possibility to do very nice walks up to Calella and Sant Sebastian (lighthouse). Cami de Ronda up to Cap Roig (walking path) offers you exceptional views. Breakfast is the best you can find with lots of fruits, very good service, and evening dinner you can take outside on the terrrace or inside in the dining room.
In our week, in the mid of September, temperature was +/- 30 degrees!
