“Gem of a hotel with lovely staff and fantastic service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here 10-24th July 2013 for the second year in a row. The place is spotless and the staff are incredibly helpful. The rooms all have a few of the pool with a balcony and include a kitchenette. The hotel is only 60m from the beach and is about 200m from a massive campsite whose facilities can be used by the hotel guests. There are organised activities 24/7. There are so many beautiful beaches and medieval villages to explore close by. If I ever come back to the Costa Brava I'll come back to this hotel.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

we went for a week in August in 2012 the hotel was advertised as a 3 star but is actually a 2 star hotel. None of the staff speak English, they are all very rude and do not like young groups staying at the hotel. They have no air-conditioning, so it is a uncomfortable situation. There was a huge ant infestation in the room, reception was informed but did nothing( they did nothing to help us ). The hotel was full young people which can be good at sometimes. The manager of the hotel is a pedo he watches people from the roof of the hotel. Drag races take place nightly at 4 till 7am. One of our mates slept in the lower part of the hotel and was disturbed constantly by noise from the street.

Room Tip: dont book here

For certain this is a villa/room/houses you'd love to go back to it's away from the noise enough so it doesn't disturb you from the main camp but the entertainment is in walking distance. Everything you could possibly need is on site and torroella is close by as well for shopping and jet skiing. Staff were helpful when we raised queries.
Would definitely go back again only downside was that it poured down the last few days of the holiday and our little garden flooded.

Firstly the good points: The hotel pool (indoor & outdoor) are very good, the restaurant & bar very elegant - although the menu is somewhat limited. The price point was fair, and they can accomodate a family of 5 or 6, which not many hotels cater for. Wi-fi is available in the hotel and villa's for free, although a tad slow.
Bad points: The villa's are basic, the tv (if you have bad weather) only has a couple of channels, no dvd player - they don't supply soap, and only limited toilet roll - so go supplied ! The area around the hotel is quite run down/scruffy, and needs investment & the beach was dirty with lots of flotsam washed in. If you want to eat out then you will need to travel 5 minutes in the car. We were recommended to visit papibou, which was an excellent tapas restaurant in a very pretty fortified village 10 minutes away - we would highly recommend a visit when you are there.

Dear Nick:

Thank you for your opinion. We appreciate all the opinions because make us improve in one way.
Just to inform you that I know that the beach was dirty but is a question of the environment law.
As for sure you will know, the hotel is located in the Montgrí Natural reserve and nobody can clean the beach for their own...

The concept of our villas is accomodate families that use it as their own home.. and this is wy they use to bring all they need...The villas are located inside the hotel but it is a different concept.

I hope you do not mind I clear all this points it is just to give you answers for us the key is a customer happy.

All the best,

Fuimos a pasar una noche para escapar, la localización esta muy bien porque esta alejado de cualquier ajetreo , muy tranquilo, las habitaciones impecables, con una pequeña cocina, la comida del restaurante exquisita, tambien contratamos un masaje, y fue excelente, ul unico pequeno fallo fue q no funcionaba la sauna del spa

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2010

Not a great hotel, but not bad either, the reception is the best part, when I checked in I thought if would be a nice hotel, but the room was much different. the hotel is very noisey, It is full off teenagers and people in their early 20's partying. Surprisingly I slept really well, but I can imagine that for some you wont be able too. In my room I had the noise of the traffic and the noise from other guests.

The rooms were not dirty but not that clean either, towels and bedding were clean though...

A cheap hotel, friendly reception staff and good if you just need a bed for the night. My family were staying at another hotel down the road so all I needed was a last min bed for the night...
