Well this place blew us away for two reasons. Firstly, It is overwhelmingly grand and opulent and beautiful and charming and all you'd want for the 'wow' experience. Secondly, it was blowing a gale outside as we arrived but the porter quickly took control - grabbed our shabby bags and ushered us to our room. Lovely greeting to start us...

An established, traditional hotel in an excellent position with direct access and views onto the beach and protected waters of the bay. All the staff were pleasant and convivial. The junior suite, though relatively small, was very nice and has a private terrace with sun beds. In warmer weather an excellent place to be. The facilities: restaurant, pool, sauna are...

Spent 3 nights here en route from UK to Iberia and were not disappointed. Managed to get a good value upgrade for a relatively small cost to a suite with a balcony (Room 17) overlooking the beach and the town - could while away aeons of time just watching everybody and everything. Good restaurant - albeit a bit pricey and...

The rooms with a view were lovely but we had an "all night party" next door that the management was either unwilling or unable to control. Tough situation to be sure, but very disappointing response from the hotel management.

Dear 12Annie59, Thank you for taking the time to share your review on Trip Advisor. I am truly sorry to read that the overall quality of your stay was disrupted by disrespectful neighbors.

The service at this hotel is wonderful, from the concierge who takes your luggage and parks your car to the welcoming reception people who make sure everything is as you wish. A different room this time , but still with great views over the bay. The rooms are modern and recently renovated and fit tastefully into this traditionally built seaside...

Absolutely loved this hotel. Let me start off by saying that people working at the hotel are best in business. Sure, hotel is beautiful, tastefully updated with all amenities, but people make the biggest difference. We flew in to barcelona and immediately drove up here and were pretty tired. Upon arrival, there was somebody here to help. I mean right...

The room and hotel facilities were fantastic. Great location with accommodating and helpful staff! The bed was incredibly comfortable, the best sleep of our trip! The concierge was really helpful in getting us an amazing dinner reservation for that night. Really made the night there. Also enjoyed the spa facilities. Very relaxing with views out onto the beach.
