This is a gorgeous hotel right on the coast. Beautilully maintained, quiet and romantic. This small area is great to walk around in and sip and eat all day long. This is a great little side trip if you're visiting Barcelona as well!

Great historical artifacts on display in this building - explained history on the way to our room. Nice pool and well-equipped gym. The breakfast buffet was fantastic and included. Staff was friendly and quick to accommodate requests.

I was fortunate enough to enjoy three nights at Hostal de la Gavina as part of a Costa Brava cycling tour. It was an exceptional experience.

The hotel is as grand as it's photos make it appear to be. The lobby is just an introduction to the experience. Up the stairs on the way to your room you will see fine art and impeccable craftsmanship in the structure. Once in the room my eye noticed the view of the sea and the exquisite parquet floor. The bed and bath were of the high quality you'd expect in a five star resort.

There is a lovely coastal walking trail on the grounds. The pool has a post card view of the bay in S'Agaro. The spa was very accommodating and provided a wonderful massage at a very reasonable price. Drinks and food at the resort were top notch.

While in S'Agarao, treat yourself to a trip along the coastal road to Tossa del Mar. The scenery on the road is Big Sur like in quality.

We were so very pleasantly surprised by this great hotel and by the beautiful Costa Brava. The grounds were gorgeous and in a great location, where you can walk in either direction to beautiful beaches. We did some light hiking every morning and thoroughly enjoyed the lush scenery. We were celebrating my birthday and they did a wonderful job arranging a special check-in surprise of an upgrade to an ocean view room and the most beautiful flower arrangement and macarons. The restaurant is also a great value and offers amazing, creative food for a price much lower than similar restaurants. Also, the staff, while young, were very helpful and provided great service. We cannot recommend this hotel enough! My only negative critique is that the sheets were horrible. Please get some high thread count sheets!!

We visited la Gavina in mid-May, which is a little before high season, and had a wonderful stay. The property is exceptionally well kept and we found the staff extremely helpful. There were not many people staying mid-week with us, which made it especially nice as we could roam the area freely and shared the nearby Sa Concha beach with only a few others. Francois was kind enough to show us around the hotel and tell us a bit of the history, as well as seeing the royal suite. The rooms are not giant, as it is quite an old hotel, but they are more than comfortable. If you visit, definitely get a sea view room - it is worth it. Also, be sure to dine in the Candlelight restaurant one night, as it was quite good and has a great atmosphere. All in all, a great experience.

Room tip: Sea View, preferably 3rd floor
