My husband and I stayed 1 night at this hotel in early November.
This hotel has excellent reviews on a number of travel booking sites plus Tripadvisor. But it looked like one of this beachside tourist hotels on the photsand I thought for 1 night, why not since it has good reviews.
I was pleasantly surprised. First of all, Cadaques is a beautiful little town with a waterfront that felt intimate ,with a small narrow road around the bay and no advertisements or neon lights at night. The Hotel Playa Sol was easy to find as it sat on the waterfront. There is parking below the building but the receptionist was kind to suggest we can park on the next street for free as it was low season.
The reception is small, but I there are many cosy sitting/reading areas to the left and right of the reception. There are big picture windows which had great views of the best part of the bay. There is a small beach in front of the hotel and there are a few boats on it, small local fishing boats, not tourist boats.
We asked for a sea view room and it is highly recommended as the road in front is very narrow so no street noise. Well, at least in November. But there are no bars next to the hotel so it cannot be noisy any time of the year.
We were given exactly the room we asked for. High floor, with a view and a balcony with 2 beds side by side. The room was small, but it was spotless. It had a weave covering on the floor which makes it easy to clean, no dirty carpets to step on. The bathroom was also spotless. The room and bathroom have been recently renovated and looked new.
The breakfast next day was terrific. The staff welcomed us as we enter and all tables have good views of the bay. The food was plentiful, and excellent, what you would expect from a 4 star hotel in Barcelona. Very pleased.
The hotel also has a pool which is outside that I did not try as it was cold. It was surrounded by greenery in a secluded spot. There is also a tennis court, but it may have been a smaller one than the standard size , so if you are a tennis player, please check with the hotel in case I am wrong.
I would definitely recommend this hotel and a room with a view for sure.Pay for it, it is worth it. Cadaques is such a charming place, please go.
