“Great Hotel Garbi”
Reviewed September 11, 2007

We have just returned from a fantastic week at the Hotel Garbi in the lovely small resort of Calella de Palafrugell. The Hotel is built on a hillside, not too much of a climb, about 10 mins walk from the beach. It is set in quite large grounds, surrounded by pine trees and gardens and is therefore very quiet with no noise at all from surrounding areas or the road. The rooms on the top floors at the front of the hotel have fantastic views of the Calella and the bay. Our room was spacious, clean and very well presented with a large bathroom (and a bath). The restaurant and bar overlook the garden and swimming pool and there are lots of areas outside for relaxing or eating. The breakfast buffet was very extensive, cereals, breads and pastries, cheese, meat, fresh fruit, eggs and sausage etc. The evening meals were of excellent quality, beautifully presented, three courses (a choice of 3 starters and 2 mains - one fish and one meat) and the pick of the desert trolley. All the staff in the hotel, receptionists, cleaners, waiters etc. were all efficient and friendly. An excellent hotel in a beautiful part of the Costa Brava.

  • Liked — The fantastic view from the bedroom and the location.
  • Disliked — The steps up from the garden!

We just returned from a week here on the back end of a wedding. The location firstly is stunning- you get a fantastic view of the entire coastline and the bays. Beautiflul. We stayed in a two bed which was in the new part of the building and was very modern- flat screens etc. Childs bed was upstairs with a spiral staircase at end of room which leads up- Very Nice and my 3 year old loved it!!
So negatives- Breakfeast was average. Hotel amenities were average- pool was very small and really was only good for a dip after you had your day out at the beach- we have quite often stayed around pools all day in Dubai etc but this had no appeal. Also a really anoying point was the fecking flies which were a constant nusance around the pool. The hotel is surrounded by trees and scrup land which has to be said is a bit of a mess. The views are stunning because you are so high and this means it is a knightmare pushing a buggy up hill at a serious gradient.... Nothing for Kids. So on the whole no major complaints just not us and would not go back.
