Stayed here for 1 week in from 29th June 2013.
Very pleasant hotel with all the basic needs you would expect from a Spanish 3 star hotel.
Breakfast was ok. Fair choice to cater for most tastes. Evening meal was ok too. About what I expect from a hotel like this.
Rooms are good but make sure you take a travel kettle and hairdryer.
No bath, only a shower in my room but again that is ok with me.
Bar area good. Inside and outside space to sit and have a drink. Views over the marina is nice.
Pool area very good. Always sunbeds free which is very important to me.
As this is a Half Board hotel you do not get all the bed snatchers out at 8:00am as you do in the All-Inclusive hotels!
A large beer is 3 Euros and a glass if White Wine is 1.5 Euros which is fair.
5 min walk to the town area and promenade which is bustling with people in the evenings so hotel is in a great location just outside the main part of the resort. Best of both worlds here.
I would highly recommend this hotel and Roses as a place to go on holiday.
As for Roses itself, a great many Catalan and French tourists come here and that makes it even better. Not used to English tourists here and raises an eyebrow and a smile when they hear you speak. Great fun trying to talk to each other.
Well worth taking the boat trip to Cadaques. Very good trip. The Roses express is also a good ride. Take the 1 hour trip up the hill and see the spectacular views over the bay with the Pyrenees is the distance.
We enjoyed it all so much we are looking to come back to Roses and The Univers Hotel next year.
