Although finding this hotel was very difficult we were not disappointed when we finally arrived. An exceptionally rustic retreat with plenty to do and see - despite the unseasonably poor weather. From our first encounter with staff we were treated with courtesy and helpfulness. A car is a must to explore the beautiful area of Catalonia, either inland or on the coast.
The food was of an exceptional standard, particularly the breakfast. We did sample the evening menu which was delicious. However, we had decided from the offset to sample other restaurants and bars in the local area – The tapas bars in Palamos are excellent and reasonably priced.
The hotel also has many outdoor activities to participate in, from mountain biking to walking in the local hills and forests, again fantastic views in all directions. We particularly enjoyed the archery which wasn’t well publicised in the hotel. The young man that met us and gave excellent tuition, followed by a very interesting game hunt through the local forest, was experienced and informative Note: targets were not real but very lifelike.
In summary, a fantastic place to stay set in exquisite surroundings. Very attentive staff that make your stay very relaxing and enjoyable. Plenty to do and see for those who want to get out and explore the local area or, if you wish to just chill out by the pool or use the spa facilities, you won’t be disappointed.
