3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

This is homely rather than hotelly. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful and the room we had was comfortable, but quite basic. There is a nice garden with sun loungers but no sunshades except those over the tables and chairs - a bit of an oversight I think as it really restricts where you can sit in the garden. Breakfast is served until midday, but, as I discovered, if you are quite late down and there is hardly anything of the hot food left they do not offer to replenish it for you. It seemed that when it was gone, that was your lot! I would not have thought that this was the number one hotel in this town, but it is nice enough.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011

I have to admit I was a tad disappointed when we first got to Hotel Sant Joan. Neither the hotel and nor the town of Palamos look like much when you first arrive. But the place quickly grew on me and ended up one of my favorites stops in our trip to Spain. The hotel itself has a lovely garden with a fountain, a big lawn, a hot tub and a small but refreshing pool. The public rooms are lovely and breakfast is terrific -- fresh breads, fruits, cheeses, meats and a hot dish each morning. Our room was small but comfortable. The front desk is very helpful. Palamos is a delightful town -- much less touristy than some of the towns on the Costa Brava. Walk the few blocks to the commercial district and you'll see families out in the streets. Enjoy!

We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is small, great, calm, clean. The garden is lovely. The staff are very helpful and they tell you about the best places and restaurants around. Breakfast (or brunch because it's until midday) is graet. We'll go back

It's a very charming hotel. The staf and owners are really helpful and make you feel like home. They give you really good tips for restaurants, good beaches, sightseeing... The place is very quiet and relaxing (except for occasional motorbikes from nearby road) and very clean. Breakfast is a fabulous buffet till noon. A good find and a delightful stay!
