We had a lovely stay at the Terramar back in July.
The location is beautiful just a few steps away from the beach, convenient for sunbathing, swimming, kayaking or strolling along the front.
The hotel is clean and well looked after and has been in the same family for several generations. The staff were all helpful especially the staff on reception and Anna our evening waitress/Catalan teacher.
If you arrive by car you can turn in and park at the entrance to unload your bags and check in. They will tell you where you can park after that, it was a few minutes walk away and free.
Breakfasts are generous with lots of choice. There is a machine with oranges in that you can get freshly squeezed juice from and the Cava is waiting on ice. The fresh fruits were good. I had cherries and strawberries with a thick and creamy yoghurt. There were cold meats, cheese with membrillo which is a quince paste called codonyat in Catalan, bacon, sausages and scrambled eggs, breads, pastries and cakes and glorious Nespresso coffee.
We have stayed in Llafranc before some years back. Once at the Terramar and the second time in another hotel nearby. Both times we mostly ate out for our evening meal as there is an excellent choice of places to eat in Llafranc. We thought we would do the same this time but we really enjoyed our meal on the first night so we ate at the Terramar's restaurant every evening. We had the set menu which included several local dishes. It was varied and interesting and included a bottle of wine, water and bread making it excellent value.
I particularly enjoyed the fideua, Palamos prawns, paella and the grilled mussels. (photos attached)
Be aware that in this part of Spain not everyone speaks English and some of those that do may not understand correctly everything you say. A bit of French worked wonders in a couple of places.
