We stayed at Playa Sol at the start of June - I would imagine under normal circumstances the town of Cadaques would be a lot busier than it was, but it's been a long winter and many establishments were still prettying themselves up for the summer.
The hotel website says it's had a revamp lately, and whatever they did, they did very well indeed. It's modern without being cold, clean without being stark. The lounge and bar areas are comfortable (even if the bar does close a tad early for some tastes) and welcoming, a good place for a late morning coffee to plan the day, or an evening glass of wine before you set out for dinner.
The rooms are equally comfortable: not particularly large, but clean, functional and with touches of style. Rooms have balconies with chairs or even sunloungers, though the sea-view rooms are clearly preferable to the rooms facing inland over the (very large) garden and pool area.
The pool was a little chilly at the start of June, but the jacuzzi and steam room were in fine order. There's even a basketball/tennis court for more active sun worshippers.
The staff are pleasant and very helpful - they can arrange boat hire, trips, restaurant recommendations and so on. Playa Sol is at the farther end of the port, a five or ten minute walk from the very centre of Cadaques seafront, but it's very much part of the town. There's lots of parking behind and below the hotel, and the wi-fi is free, though you have to ask the front desk for access codes.
All in all, a really pleasant place to stay for a few days of total relaxation.
