As soon as we got to the top of the steps we were taken in by this wonderful hotel, the lovely garden and pool, the staff and restaurant were excellent. Lovely breakfast. And a nice stroll into town to the bars. We will return as we love Gerona province and palamos.
We have just returned from a 12 night stay at this hotel and can honestly say it was sad to leave. From start to end we had the full attention of our hosts and their wonderful staff, it was like staying with friends rather than visiting a hotel. Merche and Pepe and their lovely family were an absolute pleasure to know, nothing was too much trouble, in fact it was more like a relaxing retreat for me, they knew what you needed before you knew it yourself xx Absolutely loved it and will hope to visit again x Thank you so much x
First stayed here many years ago when Pedro father of Merche the current owner was in charge. He set high standard and these are still well in place. The hotel has enjoyed some tasteful renovation but still retains the charm of the past Our room was well furbished with comfortable bed and smart decor and all facilities wifi etc worked well Garden pool and hot tub add to the relaxing attitude as do the staff who are really helpful and attentive to answer our questions look forward to returning again but this time plan a longer stay
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel, which is relaxed and quiet and has a lot of character. The first thing to mention is the friendliness of Merche, Pepe and their staff, despite only Merche speaking English and us not speaking very much Spanish beyond the usual tourist Spanglish. As some reviewers have noted there are certain quirks to staying here such as leaving your key with reception when you go out (meaning that leaving electrical items to charge is not possible) and having allocated tables at breakfast but this didn't affect our stay at all, and in fact in my opinion you will have to go a long way to find a friendlier hotel owner in the rest of Spain. Our room (102) was very spacious, with a separate area with a two seater sofa and plenty of wardrobe space, hangers etc. I can also say that the bed is one of the most comfortable I have slept in on holiday. There was always fresh bread, croissants, cereal, fruit, meat and cheese at the buffet breakfast together with a small amount of bacon, eggs etc, but the best thing about breakfast is that it is served until midday making for a very relaxed morning. The free parking is tight, especially if you have a bigger car and the hotel is full and gets full quickly. The owners have a separate garage 50 meters from the hotel for about 5 cars but there is a daily charge of 8 euros for this. Alternative parking might be a problem if both were full but I'm confident that the owners would find a solution. The hotel was easy to find when driving from Girona (about 40 mins) and its out of town location worked for us but might not for others. It is in a residential area about 15 mins easy walk into Palamos or 15 mins walk to a lovely beach at La Fosca in the opposite direction. There are no nice bars or restaurants close to the hotel but the hotel serves basic meals (burgers etc). We particularly enjoyed sitting in the garden during the evening with a nice bottle of Rioja from the hotel bar before we headed out, or sometimes for a cheeky nightcap when we got back from our meal. I would definitely stay here again when visiting this part of Spain.…
WE have visited many times over a number of years and always have a great time. The welcome and attention from Merche, Pepe and their family and staff is always fantastic. The rooms and garden/pool area are always superb. Looking forward to many more visits. Thanks again.
