“Enchanting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

I kid you not, on our first day at Castell d'Emporda, after a late night and early morning rain, we were treated to the sight of a double rainbow in the sweeping vista of fields and small towns you can see from its manicured grounds. The place is surreal ... oh and the restaurant is incredible. Yumm!

I have travelled the world chasing good food, but this castle in the hills was one of the best food experiences I have ever had. Just delicious and plentiful and creative. Plus, the place has wonderful rooms in its beautiful old castle (I stayed in the tower, what a view! Though I think some of the other rooms were fancier). The service was just impeccable and the pool and herb garden and amazing walks through the countryside made this the most amazing stay ever. Go here. Trust me. You will relax into amazing fluffy delicious vacation mode and emerge with a smile.

Room Tip: There is this suite in the tower that is like a small apartment with amazing views, sun streaming in...

Castell d'Emporda has some of the best food I've had at any hotel I've ever stayed at. Creative dishes in the tradition of El Bulli that are as delicious as they are interesting. The castle itself is beautiful, with amazing views, a terrific terrace and tower, and perfect details down to the dragon motif that carries on throughout and the detailed model recreation of the battle of waterloo. And lastly, the owners are charming and wonderful and will make your stay a true pleasure. Highly Highly Highly recommended.

Was there for a work retreat so didn't leave the hotel much, but this place is really something special. People, food, place all incredible. Make sure you visit the turret with stunning 360 degree views of the countryside, and the chef has a number of crazy good dishes but the chocolate mousse was especially memorable. It's an owner-operated place and you can really tell. Everything is done extremely well.

Beautiful grounds and splendid accommodation with great food and superb staff. Possibly the best bath tub I have ever been in! I would love to come back and stay here - hire a car and drive around the countryside. Beautiful countryside... the only place I have ever seen a entire rainbow from beginning to end - on land.

Really great place. The kindness of the staff was sometimes unbelievable (like they call you by name and remember every detail), the food was so amazing (and I mean, I have quite high stardards), with shocking combinations like chocolate mousse and olive oil (by itself a reason to go there), with swimming pool, volleyball field and lot of woods around for relaxing walks. And when you need some time to think big picture you can just walk up to see the view from the castle tower.

This castle has been spectacularly maintained and improved to house an outstanding restaurant, and heated pool with brilliant views of the sunset over the countryside. It would be perfect for a wedding, conference, or weekend getaway. An enchanting blend of modern luxury within a historic rural setting.
