The hotel is situated right on the marina, opposite the Club Nautic in L'Estartit. You can't actually see the Medes Islands from the hotel, but the view over the sea is lovely anyhow. You can see the Islands after a couple of minutes' stroll along the front.
The hotel has LOADS of staff, who all seem very friendly and efficient. They humoured us with our limited Spanish (sorry, the extent of our Catalan is saying "good morning"!) but also spoke excellent English, as well as French and German that I overheard.
The room was basic but clean, although the shower/bath looked like it was in need of a little TLC - there was quite a lot of limescale around it. The beds were also a little soft for me, and I had a sore back in the morning, but this is obviously personal preference.
The seafront bars and restaurants are all in easy walking distance. We chose the restaurant Salines for a really excellent meal.
The hotel also doubles-up as a diving centre and is wonderfully located for this, although we didn't take advantage on this (very quick) stay.
The free Wifi throughout the hotel is relatively fast and easy to pick up. The code to connect is on a notice board in the lobby, so there's no need to bother staff to ask for it.
