I found this place to be incredibly charming. The location is amazing, the view from the expansive patio is serene, Looking out from your perch, sipping a Cava, seeing the boats bobbing in the cove, kids playing in the ocean, beautiful men and women sunning in the sand..this typified the best of the Costa Brava for me. A short walk takes you to the restaurants and shops of Calella de Palafrugell, a bit further walk along the cliffside path takes you to La Franc, an equally charming locale on a similar cove with similar visual attributes. I found the breakfast to be expansive, lost of choices from fresh fruit, eggs, several meats, several wines, fresh sqeezed juice , several cheeses This is a cool place, and I would go back in a heartbeat.

The downside is that parking sucks, the rooms are basic but fine, service was fine, My girlfriend and my sister visited here with me on separate occasions and they were equally charmed..

Room Tip: I would stay away from parking area, and upstairs is better. There isnt AC so the ambient noise is p...

This hotel/restaurant is situated on a headland overlooking one of the beautiful Calella beaches. In fact the view is so wonderful that I very nearly didn't even look at the menu as I was sure the retaurant must cost a fortune. In fact it didn't at all - very reasonable, perfectly cooked simple fish. I loved this place and it is worth going to for the view alone.

We arrived in Calella de Palafrugell as Google maps suggested a classic coastal village and were not disappointed. Hotel la Torre had 2 rooms, priced 150 euro. Decided this was worth it for the location and view. Room is a good size, ensuite, with twin beds, clean and comfortable. You're back from the road so it's quiet, yet only 10 minutes walk to the centre. With the sea on the doorstep who needs a pool.

We stayed here for 4 nights. We originally booked for 2 nights but it was so nice we decided to extend our stay. We had an ocean view, enough space for 2 adults and 2 children in the room, and the location was fantastic - steps away from the Calella beach and a short walk to the LaFranc beach. The breakfasts were generous and very good and on the ocean view terrace. The staff were exceptionally helpful.

Hotel La Torre in Calella de Palafrugell is a beautiful and pleasant hotel on the sea, near a grand medieval tower, in a delightful village on the Costa Brava. The room we had was twin-bedded with modern bath and small terrace, and a sea view, at an angel, which included a view of the small village and cap. It was easy to drive to many nearby country villages and other sights along the coast. We enjoyed breakfast on the terrace, a self-service table with a plentiful assortment of breakfast foods and drinks.

We ate one meal of the three nights at the hotel restaurant, a much better than average hotel meal, with very good local specialisms and a nice selection of regional and Spanish wines. It was warm enough to eat on the terrace, and the nocturnal setting and food made a lovely introduction to our month in Catalonia and the Northeast of Spain.

As everywhere in Iberia, the parking is tight. That is especially true here in their lot near the tower. One can also walk to the Botanic Gardens, an impressive park with flowers, overlooking the sea.

First, what's good about this hotel: the location is perfect, it's next to one of Calella's beautiful (if crowded) beaches, and Calella of course is a gem, compared to most other spots at the Costa Brava. Tourists here are mostly Catalans and Spanish, and you have a great selection of good restaurants offering excellent sea food.
Unfortunately, the restaurant of "La Torre" is not among these restaurants. What we found most annoying, though, is the low quality of service. Upon arrival, noone welcomes you, and when leaving, noone wishes you a good ride home. Absolutely unprofessional. For a solid 140 euros per room, breakfast is a joke - apparently, hotel management is focused, above all, on cutting costs, and you feel it (coffee, e.g., is being served by a cheap coffee machine). The hotel bar, again, is wonderfully located, but somewhat faceless. All in all, we would strongly recommend Calella, but not this hotel.
