Hotel Sant Roc
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 13, 2011

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.

Very nice people manages it, making you feel totally at home. Views, particularly from the terrace (breakfast) are second to none.

Room Tip: Rooms with see view, specially the corner one are a lot nicer, even if pricey.

We didn't stay in the hotel, but had 2 restaurant experiences. First we stayed for lunch. Food's fine, although the waiter brought the white wine without a cooler. After some time, I asked for a cooler, he nodded, but no cooler. Only when asking another waiter did we finally get a cooler. Still, only a very minor nuisance, so next night, we booked for dinner. We arrived at half past eight, got the menus and were left waiting. After more than 15 minutes we said we wanted to order. Still had to wait, but could finally make our order, including wine. After 10 minutes more waiting, we said we really wanted to drink some wine already. Still 5 minutes later, no wine, in total more than half an hour sitting at a table with nothing in front of you, we left. And it wasn't even that is was terribly crowded, but just that staff didn't know what to do when. When the head-waiter asked why we left, we gave our reasons, and were hissed in response "hasta nunca" / "till never". We agreed with him. In the village, quickly found a nice restaurant with good and fast service.

If money is no option, a top floor/seaview/balcony room is recomended. Breakfast is good and on the balcony it is a bliss with the view, smell and sound of the sea just below. In high season, Calella is really crowded, to be avoided if possible. The hotel has probably the best location of the Calella hotels and certaily knows to charge the guests for this advantage throught the roomrates and compulsary half board in the peak season. The à là carte dining for an extra fee, proved no better than the daily set menu - a waste of money. Wines OK though.

We stayed here with our adult daughter in June. The rooms were quite disappointing, considering the price that we paid for them. We had travelled all over Spain and this was our one splurge. However, some 2 and 3 star hotels that we had stayed in had much nicer rooms for half the price. Nor were we keen to pay the considerable extra for a sea view room. However the location was superb and the terrace an amazing place to sit and enjoy the view whilst reading or having a drink.

So disappointed in the 'standard' room we had chosen it was tiny and very poor value, but to upgrade with a sea view was a lot more money. It overlooked the car parking area. Breakfast was good with lovely views from the hotel terrace which was also lovely to sit on in the shade during the day. No swimming pool or children's facilities. The beach opposite the hotel was accessed by over 100 steps and was tiny, ok for couples but no good for children. The other beaches in Calella also accessed by steps but larger and very crowded. The sea was very clean, lots of rocks to lie on or climb over. We found 2 very good restaurants in the back streets of Calella, Xanuba and Sali's. The hotel staff were welcoming and some spoke English and were friendly. No private car park, street parking taking pot luck.

Room Tip: Do not recommend 'standard' rooms for more than 1 night, but feel sure the more expensive ro...

We stayed here for a long weekend with some friends. We have been to this area many times but it was their first trip. We had a standard room without sea view and they had a great room with sea view and terrace. obviously they paid more but loved it. I was also very satisfied with our room. The staff were great and I have to say this was our favourite hotel in the area.
The views from the breakfast terrace were superb.
Our friends fell in love with the hotel and Calella.
We did not eat here as I knew lots of other places to take them. We thought the price of drinks very reasonable.
We will definitely be back.
