Hotel Sant Roc has been owned and lovingly run by three generations of the same family since it was built. A hand painted mural in the bar dated 1955 depicts the hotel. Its outline has not changed, nor has the setting. Quite simply the hotel has the best position in the most charming resort on the most beautiful and rugged coast on the whole Mediterranean.
Balconies of rooms that face the sea, especially on the top floor, have the view up and down the coast with the bays and beaches of Calella in between. The terrace of the hotel allows you the same view whilst breakfasting or sipping a huge gin and tonic before dinner. Watching the sun or moon rise and set over the reflecting sea, listening to the waves breaking gently on the rocky coves, observing the fishing and scuba boats sailing to and fro, smelling the pine trees, scanning the blue horizon... if the hotel gave you nothing more than this you would pity anyone who had not experienced it. But there is so much more. It has been continuously but discreetly modernised without losing any of its charm. Since our first stay about fifteen years ago it has acquired a playground, air conditioning, flat screen TV, wi-fi. Beach towels and parasols are supplied. Breakfast has expanded to include a broad buffet with crisp fresh bread and delicious croissants, and the coffee remains strong and fragrant. The half board menu has become imaginative and delightfully presented, with a separate vegetarian menu and a ready willingness to vary dishes for dietary reasons. The Crema Catalana is so good that you could easily choose it every night. Staff are warm, cheerful and helpful without being obsequious. Rooms sparkle and linen is crisp. Bathrooms are well equipped. Do not expect lavish overblown five star luxury. This is a hotel with real and seemingly effortless charm, not contrived boutique glamour. The effortlessness is the only illusion; the staff work hard to maintain it. Everything else is real and delightfully so. It is not a cheap hotel. But it is excellent value. And, if you get bored with the half a dozen beaches within day walking distance, there are so many attractions within a short drive, including Cap Roig, Girona, Figueres (with its dazzling Dali Museum), Cadaques and the old hill towns including Pals, Begur and Besalu.
