After a long study about Costa Brava we went to Sant Roc for a long weekend. I could not book over the web as they do not accept one night booking and I wanted to test first the hotel.
We have got the top quality room, balcony and seaside for 174 Euro (eventually billed a bit lower..very kind of them) and we ended up staying three night.
The hotel is beautifully located on the west end of Calella de Palafrugel (not to be confused with Calella beach) high on the rocks. View from the room was superbe and the hotel terrace and veranda restaurant area panoramic as well. Parking in front in October was easy and free.
it is possible to reach a very small beach and some rocks walking straight down the stone stair from hotel and have a swim there in season.
Calella is at short walking distance and offers several options for dining.
Check in was kind and warm and the room was simply decorated. The bad point - i suggest them to arrange soonest - was the double bed, not a splittable one, set by two mattrass that cant stay together and are unconsistent. So quality of sleep was not good. Decoration itself is not charming, Bathroom is large enough and perfectly equipped although not elegant neither of good design.
Anyway this is a three star hotel, so once again I would consider unfair to complain but I had the feeling they could make of it a perfect bird nest by a small effort.
it is truth also that corridors have a special smell, not a good one, and it should not be difficult to solve the issue I read in another review.
Breakfast was more than correct in terms of food and beverage available and service at top: quick attention, freshly dressed table (of your choice: in - out - veranda - view... I much appreciated such attention!).
We never had dinner or lunch at the hotel but the menu sounded good.
As a conclusion - after having had a direct look to many other options along the coast and inland too - it is the best choice if one wants a view and can accept some minor disconfort. I am aware I am an highly demanding traveller so I want to be fair.
We went to have a look to Far De San Sebastia just in front and although highly rated did not look such a better option.
It deserve a note the price for the bar consumptions: we had few things and prices were correct in line with hotel standard, that is not always the case.
