We stayed in this hotel three years ago and really enjoyed it so were delighted to have the opportunity to return last week. Last time we stayed our boys were younger so we shared a room, this time we booked seperate rooms side by side. Both rooms were bright and quite spacious, nicely appointed, and both with balconies - ours overlooked the lovely pool area and the boys one looked on to a stables. I have stayed in many hotels over the years but this is without doubt one of the cleanest hotel I have ever been in. The fact that all floors are tiled helps obviously, but regardless the cleaning staff were fantastic and there was always a lovely clean fresh aroma throughout the building. The pool is lovely and seems to have a mix of salt water in it so you don't have an overwhelming chlorine scent and therefore also seems softer on ones skin. The food is amazing, breakfast was included and we had a plethora of fresh fruit, spanish meats, and pastries to choose from. At €14.50 for a three course meal lunch and dinner (18.50 on Saturday and Sunday and Bank holidays), also a very extensive and very reasonably priced a a la carte menu, the food is very fresh, very tasty and lovingly prepared. The interior of the hotel is nicely decorated, bright, modern but with plenty of charm and you have the option of dining outside either by the poolside or the front of the hotel on a very quiet side road setting. There are some lovely paintings on the walls (many of which were for sale and I would have been seriously interested if it wasn't for luggage restrictions on the flight). The owners and their staff are highly professional yet very warm and accommodating. The surrounding area is unspoilt and very scenic. Within five minutes of walking you are at a beautiful sparsley populated beach, take another slightly different route and you arrive at a lovely lagoon where you can indulge in kayaking and other low key water sports. I could happily lounge at the hotel for a week but we did hire a car as there are many interesting and beautiful towns nearby (approx 20 mins in a car) e.g. Toroella de Montgri (good market on Mondays), Pals (old town), Peratallada (stunning), Begur (buzzing and amazing aspect), Callela de Pallafrugel/Llafranc(walked from one resort to the other in 15 minutes on a gorgeous coastal path. For somewhere purpose built for the holiday crowd (not my thing but my teenage sons liked it) Estartit is also nearby - 20/25 minutes by car or it can be reached by walking (probably take an hour at most). Girona city is approx 50 minutes away and is a ovely city with something for everyone - beautiful buildings, history, great shopping, high quality restaurants, atmosphere. Anyway to conclude if you want sun and stunning blue skies, unspoilt scenery, culture, relaxation and fabulous (great value) food and wine in authentic surroundings then this hotel and location are hard to beat.

Room tip: Get a room with a balcony - most rooms would seem to have one.

A lovely little Spanish hotel full of Spanish speaking staff and guests. Fab setting out of the way, a short stroll from a lovely Spanish beach. If you want somewhere English don't bother, but if you would like a real taste of Spain you will love it. Good food in the restaurant belies its lowly star rating. Nice sized room with basic facilities. Happy to return time and time again.

Arrived yesterday and waited over half an hour at reception to get checked in. I spoke to 4 different members of staff who each said "1 minute" but never returned. I was fuming that i was left standing there so long.

I was then checked in by a lady who reluctantly apologised to me and asked if I still wanted to stay! Not a great start. A drink for the trouble should have been standard.

Anyway, the hotel is excellent. In the middle of nowhere, not far from the beach. The town is a 10 minute drive away- you need a car if staying here although Bikes are for hire.

The room was large, spotlessly clean, had a large TV, fridge and plenty of sockets. The bed was very comfortable. There was air conditioning and a large balcony. The TV had lots of channels but only 1 English- BBC World News. What is it with European hotels thinking all we like is news?? There were plenty of German and French channels!

The pool area was nice and restuarant was very busy and well priced.

I slept well but the corridors were very loud until around midnight.

Breakfast was good- cheese, ham, salami, yoghurts, fruit, toast, croissants and coffee.

The very polite manager checked me out, asked if I slept well and gave me a gift of local grown rice. Very nice gesture. You don't get this charm in larger hotels.

Very nice stay!

We arrived on Sunday afternoon (last week in August) a gloriously warm sunny day, and were welcomed with a sunny smile. Our room was a good size with balcony overlooking the swimming pool and longer views to the right overlooking one of the many massive apple orchards with delicious looking apples. We were six people and were offered lunch straight away, which was delicious. We left our luggage and immediately walked to the amazingly beautiful golden sandy beach, which was the best family beach we had ever seen. At the end of the day, we decided to stop and all have supper together. Another delicious and very reasonably priced two course meal which included a drink if you had a particular menu. Very good value, we thought. In fact, because the special menu meals were such good value, with a drink, we decided to sign in for either the lunch or dinner meals several times during our weeks stay. Our Breakfasts were excellent with various and delicious fresh croissants every day, together with all sorts if fresh and beautifully ripe fruits, peaches, pears in wine, pineapple, figs, yogurts, custard creams, as well as all sorts of fruit drinks coffee, tea and cereals. The weather was so good that we sat outside for most meals. The Restaurant was cheerful with all the Staff being as quick as possible with the meals. The Restaurant was always busy at lunch and dinner, which "speaks volumes" about its quality of food, popularity, and service. Yes, the Hotel Picasso was not easy to find and the staff did not speak different languages,But The Owners, MR. JOAN and MRS EVA are charming and have no problem with speaking English. They loved to have a chat in the evenings, in between being very very 'hands- on busy'!! Their Staff particularly Queti and Mari, are splendid. We would highly recommend the Hotel Restaurant Picasso as a place to stay and enjoy the swimming pool - But in particular the Hotel is so very CONVENIENT for the extensive and wonderful very long safe sandy beach, and the sea has the big river running straight into the sea by the village. It is possible to walk across the river when it meets the sea. Altogether, we had a really relaxing and happy week, with non- stop sunny weather. A GORGEOUS HOLIDAY !!! Jan Kenyon

Room tip: Always sensible to ask, but other than overlooking the swimming pool it is all ok.

We arrived at The Picasso as the last leg of our 8 day family cycle. The longest leg for our children at 35 kms. It had very good facilities lovely spacious comfortable and clean rooms. Dinner was ok but we felt that some dishes were not cooked fresh on the day such as the paella. Another Belgium couple also thought the same as we did.

The hotel had a friendly family feel to it.

The breakfast was a big disappointment - sadly. The orange juice machine was like something out of a Jacques Tati film. However you tried to dispense it the floor ended up flooded!! Once seen never forgotten.

It bad a nice clean good sized pool. Lovely views. It was close to a lovely beach about 1 km away.

It was in our opinion hopeless as a destination for a family cycle as it was about 15 km to L'Estartit and the same back - too far for an 8 year old.

We felt there were too many extras to add to our dinner bill. Not the right location for us cycling and the food was not as good we had
expected from reports.
