The location is ok but a bit far from the beach and restaurants. They have private parking though which is great. The hotel looks nice, the rooms are ok but very standard, nothing special. We had ants in the room and even in the bed, the showers by the pool did not work. The staff were friendly and helpful, the... More

Great price but not very accommodating service. You have to give up your card key when you leave which means you can't charge your phone or computer. There was only one outlet in the room so I hope you have a multi socket connector if you have more than one device to charge. Breakfast tables are pre assigned and you... More

We stayed here for a week and from the minute we arrived we were greeted with a friendly smile from the owner and this warm welcome was the theme for the rest of our stay.

We have just returned from a week in this hotel. It was our second visit and the owner remembered us and put us back in the same room. The rooms are air conditioned.....essential in the heat and are spacious with TV, sofa and a safe. The bathroom has a full size bath. I think that there are upgrade rooms but... More

The hotel itself is a quaint, historic building a short walk from the waterfront in Palamos. The room was clean, the staff was very kind and the free wifi in the room worked perfectly. Great for couples or those looking for a quiet place to lay their head down. If I am ever back in Palamos I will definitely stay... More

A lovely, small hotel just a short walk from the bustling harbour of this lively (in a nice way!) resort. The standard bedroom was spacious, well decorated and very clean. Breakfast served until midday - very civilised. Buffet style and even at 11.30 there was still a full choice, hot, cold, cereals, meats, cheeses, yogurts, fruits and pastries. Pool and... More
