This Hotel is just about as far away from the typical stereotype Costa Brava Hotel that you can get. Its located in a very quiet location and offers true Catalan character and ambience. The Hotel has been family owned for years and the delightful and charming owners have been constantly upgrading it ever since we first came here some 30 years ago. We have only eaten here previously as we stay at the excellent El Delfin Caravan Park close by and have always enjoyed the superb value meal - only 13 euros for a three course meal with good quality modestly priced wines (11 euros for lunch - steak au poivre with chips, salad and creme catalane with inclusive large glass of wine)
This time we stayed in the Hotel for the first time for 5 nights. Our room was good sized, simple but comfortable with a large bathroom. The service as ever was excellent and the breakfast, contrary to some other comments was very good. The beach is approx 10 mins walking distance and there is nothing else around other than another small hotel and a childrens holiday retreat. A car is INMO essential. Car hire is cheap BUT DONT use GOLDCAR. Each time we have hired through them, we have been dissappointed, overcharged and provided with poorly prepared old vehicles. Within 10-15 minutes travelling time you have some delightful historic Catalan hilltop Villages such as Perratallada, Pals, Begur and Palau Satour. Torroella di Montgri is the closest town approx 5 miles away and has a huge market which takes over the entire historic Town Centre. within an hour, there is the cathedral city of Girona, the Dali Museum at Figueras, and the enchanting fishing village of Cadaques with Dali's strange. but beautifully located house, (now open to the public, but book first).The tourist town of L'Estartit is also close by. This is a bit brash in parts, however the harbour area is superb. Try Les Salinas, the last restaurant overlooking the port and the delightful Bay of Pals for a superb Paella and stuffed mussels. The views from here looking down to Begur in the South and the wooded Selvas to the south west are magnificent. This is a great place for a week break
