We booked a superior sea view room and also asked for a quiet room. Within 48 hours a member of the reception staff rang and explained that the sea view meant being above a busy coast road and a railway line. We took their advice and changed to a garden room on the 1st. floor. When we arrrived we realised that the advice was good. The room we had (211) was peaceful and the balcony caught the sun most of the day.
The hotel only offers breakfast and snacks but they recommended restaurants in Collioure and the ones we sampled were good, especially Can Pla.
The breakfast room was a little chaotic at peak times. There were not enough staff to re-lay tables and stock the buffet and we felt 13.5 Euros rather too much for a disjointed meal, waiting to have things like the fruit salad, the boiling water or the bread rolls brought out from the kitchen. On our last morning we were in breakfast at 7.30 and this was a much more pleasant experience than the one we had around 9.00/9.15.
All in all, we felt that the staff worked hard and the rooms were clean and comfortable.
