Sitting on the flower bedecked breakfast terrace, overlooking the harbour I was trying to work out how to stay forever.
The best laid plans would have come to nought after a couple of days though, when I ran out of clean clothes : the room is too tiny to fit in a medium sized suitcase, let alone a huge one! Comfortable and clean, with super friendly staff on reception (receptionist even took the time to chat and correct my execrable Spanish) they let us check in early so we could go on the beach. We had a room on the top floor and the terrace was almost as big as the room.
Tamariu itself is a delight, a picture perfect village around a small harbour with safe swimming from a sandy beach, spoiled when we were there by many jellyfish. Predictably, the place was overrun with Yummy Mummies and their Boden-clad offspring; many from the Uk as well as Spanish and French. This popularity and the restricted development potential of the village's location in a small, craggy cove has driven up prices and the Hotel Hostalillo is no exception. That and the size of the room is the reason for a four star rating, not five.
