The De La Gavina sits atop a hill overlooking Girona. It's a beautiful setting. The hotel is classic old world design and feel. The pool overlooks the bay. The air conditioning in our suite left a little to be desired and the furnishings were in need of an upgrade. However, the service and setting was beautiful.

This is a beautiful hotel in an exquisite setting. We were impressed with the consistently good service around the pool area, as well as at breakfast. However, service levels in other areas of the hotel were not great, and certainly not up to the standard that one would expect at similar 5-star hotels. I would suggest that management take the...

The setting of the hotel is beautiful. It's a very classic Spanish hotel and not the usual contemporary style I would go for. However it was very luxurious. The room was quite old with antique furniture but nicely done with a lovely plush bathroom. The breakfast was extensive with someone making eggs and a fabulous range of fruit etc. The... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in July and it was pure heaven. We stayed in the lowest price room without a balcony, and did not find it as overpriced as others have complained.

It's hard to understand the 5 star rating and inclusion in the LHW group for this hotel. The location was nice, close to a beautiful walkway around an amazing Mediterranean peninsula, but it had no private beach and the adjacent public beach was very busy and highly commercial. It had a large, lovely looking pool that was so salty as... More

First, its a great location. Cooler than Barcelona, right on an amazing beach, and with a pool and spa. But you pay. Things in Spain seemed relatively inexpensive, but staying here is like staying at The Plaza. No one speaks any English, and my Spanish isn;t great so be prepared for that. Not cheap, not a deal. But it is... More
