5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Stayed here for 4 nights with our baby daughter and were really impressed with the quality of the rooms and upkeep of the place, together with a super location for the beach (one block away), nice pool area and a Michelin recommended restaurant. S'agaro is a quiet place but the beach is immaculate, nice walks around can be had and in general a lovely place for a very relaxing time. This hotel and its staff are to be highly commended for their care and attention - deserving of more than 3 stars

Room Tip: ground floor rooms have a large terrace, however upper floors only a smaller balcony

The hotel is in an excellent location. S'Agaro is so beautiful with lovely walks along the coast. We stayed here is February for 2 nights - myself, husband and 7 year old son. The rooms were large and comfortable. The bathroom was large and clean. Lovely jacuzzi bath and seperate shower. The safe is free to use and there is plenty of hanging space in the wardrobes. I accidentally put in the wrong number in the safe a few times which resulted in us being unable to use it. Went to reception and the lady came over immediately and sorted out the problem. Very helpful and excellent service. We only stayed b & b. The breakfast was very good and fresh. Cooking your own eggs and bacon was good. Would highly recommend this hotel. Excellent value.

Stayed 2 nights, had a free upgrade to a Junior Suite with jacuzzi!! Bed was so comfortable, wanted to bring it home - pure luxury!! Hotel spotless. Very good breakfast. A few bars and restaurants down the road. Beautiful scenary, we drove to Tossa De Mar, you do need a car if you want to get out and about. not a lot to do in the area. Ok we got a good deal as it was the low season, but all in all, a really lovely stay, would definately recommend. Girona Airport taxi costs 50E each way, so much cheaper to hire a car. Beware though, we went to top up the tank on way to airport and it was closed!!!! So no doubt we shall be charged premium rates for the petrol to top up our hire car. Enjoy!

The Barcarola is situated a few streets from the beach in the pleasant resort of S'Agaro. It's only a minute's walk from the beach, and numerous restaurants along the seafront. There is a very nice pool with an upper area overlooking the pool and sea, which was always very quiet and had lots of free loungers.

The breakfast buffet was large, and gave you the ability to prove your egg cooking skills (or otherwise!) on a strange flat egg frying device. We drove to the hotel from Barcelona airport (90 mins), and there is a large, free car park behind the hotel. The hotel's restaurant is very good, probably the best option in town, albeit slightly overpriced – especially the starters, which were very expensive. The staff were all very friendly, and spoke good English, despite mostly being Dutch (as the vast majority of the guests are Dutch).

The town itself is very quiet; no noisy Brits or nightclubs and popular with the locals. All in all, the Barcarola is an excellent place to relax on the coast, and well located for trips on coast and inland if you have a car.

Dutch delghts at this "gem" of a hotel in the Van de Valk chain in the sleepy resort of S'agaro. Too often hotels fail to live upto expectations but the Barcarola delivers on all counts. A friendly welcome at reception on arrival promised better things to come. The free secure parking was welcome. A request for extra pillows and a wi-fi connection were dealt with promptly. The room on the third floor offered spectacular views from its terrace. Comfortable beds and a well appointed bathroom and seperate shower cubicle. The air-con worked well and the T.V offered a plethora of both international and Spanish chanels. Breakfast by the pool wsa great start to the day with a varied buffet and cooked breakfast option. We were impressed by the small army of Spanish/Dutch staff cleaning and polishing their way round the building and grounds. We had booked a demi-pension holiday on the basis if the food was'nt up to scratch we could always eat out at one of the many local restaurants. However, dinner in the hotel restaurant turned out to be the highlight of every day. The table d'hote menu was varied and to a high standard. I defy anyone to find a better restaurant in the area. The fresh fish of the day - sea bass or bream, steaks and paella -were all options during our stay. Within the Sea of Mediocrity that is the Spanish Hotel Scene - the Barcarola stands out as a beacon of hope. Thank you Barcarola for a wonderful holiday - we hope to return soon.

We have spent 1 night at this hotel back in 2006. We were a "walk-in", the staff at reception was very nice, the service was flawless throughout the stay. Its very close to the beach, has ample parking space, the room we have stayed in was clean, tidy and cozy, the breakfast was excellent, in short - 100% value for money.
We will come back:)
