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

My husband and I visited for several nights in late June this year, and had a wonderful experience. The property is gorgeous, beautiful rooms, pool, lawns, views of the cove and beach (and hiking, watersports, cycling!) which are easily accessible, wonderful noncommercial beachfront town with excellent restaurants lining the beachfront. Absolutely excellent service at all levels - concierge, wait staff,... More

This is a gorgeous hotel right on the coast. Beautilully maintained, quiet and romantic. This small area is great to walk around in and sip and eat all day long. This is a great little side trip if you're visiting Barcelona as well!

Great historical artifacts on display in this building - explained history on the way to our room. Nice pool and well-equipped gym. The breakfast buffet was fantastic and included. Staff was friendly and quick to accommodate requests.

We were so very pleasantly surprised by this great hotel and by the beautiful Costa Brava. The grounds were gorgeous and in a great location, where you can walk in either direction to beautiful beaches. We did some light hiking every morning and thoroughly enjoyed the lush scenery. We were celebrating my birthday and they did a wonderful job arranging... More

We visited la Gavina in mid-May, which is a little before high season, and had a wonderful stay. The property is exceptionally well kept and we found the staff extremely helpful. There were not many people staying mid-week with us, which made it especially nice as we could roam the area freely and shared the nearby Sa Concha beach with... More
