“Wonderful hotel, friendly staff, we'll be back!”
Reviewed September 5, 2011

I spent several days researching the area and chose Hotel Blaumar for location and amenities. After multiple email conversations with the staff, we had perfect room arrangements. The hotel is just a 10 minute walk from the center of town- enough to be in a quiet area but still close enough to not have to drive. Breakfast was great and the staff was wonderful!! We can only hope we return soon. Check out my hub about Cadaques and pics of the hotel at

Room Tip: Ask for rooms in the main building. Views will probably not be worth extra $$

I looked at this hotel and it sounded so wonderful I didn’t look at any others… I spent months after I’d booked looking forward to it as we’d ‘splashed out’ on it for four nights in August at the end of our holiday having spent other nights in cheaper places. I was really disappointed. I’d requested a room with a balcony and was given this. However, you can only see the view if you stand up on the small balcony as if you’re sitting down the views are blocked by the trees of the neighbouring property. The hotel does not post any prices for teas, coffees or beers and seems reluctant to offer the service (you have to ring a bell if you’d like bar service), hence no one is ever sitting in the attractive lounge/bar area and the ‘hotel’ has more of a ‘motel’ feel. The pool is great but the pool and terrace area are very small so it can get crowded and noisy. Also, unlike other hotels in Spain you must request twin beds if you want them otherwise you’ll get a double bed. I’d advise you to do more research as I’m sure other hotels offer better value for money. The best thing about this hotel is the location just 10 minutes from the noisier central area of town and five minutes from the quieter coves for swimming.

Room Tip: Request a room with a balcony and you must request twin beds if you'd like them.

blaucadaques, Gerente at Hotel Blaumar Cadaques, responded to this review, August 22, 2011
It would want to answer this new critic, normally we accepted criticism and we did not enter valuations or answers by our part, but to this we can clarify it criticism in some aspect and to clarify some section for reading futures, always comes well to extend information. We are conscious that not always it likes the same to everybody, this serious very easy one, and is possible that to these gentlemen they did not like the hotel, or Cadaqués. These gentlemen had made a reserve towards some time of a double room with balcony, never mentioned that they wanted 2 beds, although is certain that at this time the trees of opposite are in all their splendour and deprive something the view, view that we made clear that he is not seen the sea, since we are not in forward edge of coast. When they arrived at the hotel and they saw the room, they said that they wanted 2 beds, something that were not possible since the hotel was complete, on the following day said that it had slept in the ground since it could not sleep in a double bed, but we could not change it until I complete day, that we had a room of 3 beds that we offered to him to the same price that the double one, not even was thankful for this fact to us. I understand that it says that the hotel is expensive, mainly if by your fault is called on to you to sleep in the ground, the hotel prepares in a 80% of the rooms double beds, since it is what the majority of clients asks who come from vacations and if somebody requests 2 beds to us in the reserve, we try to be so, and in case it is not possible we communicated it before reserving firmly. With respect to the service of bar, prices and others, I must clarify that they say, since in the 4 days did not use any service, neither garage, nor breakfasts, nor nothing of the bar, nor a simple water bottle. To clarify that in summer we have service of bar from the 8,30 morning, with the breakfasts, to the 12 at night that we closed the bar and terrace, to avoid noises and that the clients can rest, we have wine letter with the prices and are exposed in tables, and letter of prices they ask for if it in the bar, the letter of meals this exposed with the prices in the zone of reception. I must clarify that it is a hotel of 2 stars and that we do not have personnel with exclusive dedication for each client, and who in some we put a pulse in the bar to ask for the service of bar, which allows the personnel to be kind while it does other works in office or it cooks. Our hotel of 2 stars, is a small familiar establishment, not a Motel almost nonexistent in Spain and typical of U.S.A. and that because of the films do not have very good reputation. We tried to please the expectations of the clients, but also it is truth that the expectations of some clients we cannot satisfy them, according to which services are own of hotels of 4 or 5 stars, and prices 3 or 4 times superiors to ours. We hope that this writing serves to clarify some points, and mainly that is not our desire to overvalue the hotel, nor to sell expectations that are not in our hand, simply we hoped that our clients which they are many and of many years repeating, they are like in house, this if with norms, timetables and particular services, so that we pruned to maintain a certain order and tranquillity, thanks and are welcomes to the hotel Blaumar de Cadaqués.

This hotel definitely feels more like a 3 star than a 2 star. The rooms were simple but impecably clean. The location lovely -- a 10 minute, beautiful walk along the sea from the central plaza.

The only 2 reasons I did not give it a full 5 stars were
1. the inconsistency of the staff (the afternoon manager was lovely, but we had surly issues with the other one who made our check out process unpleasant).
2. while the pool area is lovely, there is absolutely no shade except in the dining area. A few umbrellas would have made it perfect.

Breakfast is extremely expensive with the exchange rate, so we just walked into town for a pastry and coffee at 1/4th the price!

We just returned from two nights at the Hotel Blaumar. While we agree with the other reviews about how well kept the property is, be forewarned that there are a couple of drawbacks. The first evening we were there, it was a beautiful evening. We were prepared to relax by the pool as we watched the sunset....No deal! The desk attendant came out precisely at 8:00 and declared the pool closed. (It is a pretty small pool with only a few lounge chairs around it.) We were free to sit at the patio tables if we liked, but not in the lounge chairs around the pool. When we asked about towels for the pool/beach we were offered some to "rent" for one euro each for the duration of our stay. The afternoon receptionist who received us was very friendly each time we dealt with her but the morning/daytime receptionist was pretty abrupt. The patio for the rooms is very small -- one chair -- and a very small view of the village if you are at the end of the hallway. The rooms are a bit noisy with hall noise and water noise from other bathrooms. Parking was a bit of a hassle. When we arrived the receptionist encouraged us to park on the street if possible so it would not be an extra cost. It took some time to find street parking but once we found a place we opted to walk the rest of the time we were in Cadaques....we loved exploring on foot anyway! If your priority is simple but well kept this hotel would meet that goal.

Very nice rooms and pool but the owners are incredibly uptight. We sat by the pool with a glass of wine with no one around and were asked to only drink beverages purchased from them. Silly. The breakfast is highway robbery. So it's a nice place but the experience leaves a lot to be desired.

This may be down as 2 star, but I will bet that it's the best 2 star hotel you'll ever stay at. Staff are really friendly, rooms clean, modern and include a balcony with great views of the beautiful town. The swimming pool is v small but, again immaculately clean.
Only drawback was (for me) the beds which I thought were too hard. But compared with some of the much more expensive places on the Costa Brava (see my other reviews), Hotel Blaumar is a little gem.

Cadaques is a special place for itself.
This small hotel has a friendly staff and a good breakfast.
The price is OK and they offer a parking area (8 Euros/day).
If returning there I will reserve this hotel.
