“Great location, restaurant and lovely staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Tamariu Hotel was recommended by a friend who lived nearby and it really lived up to it's recommendation. Our hire car was redundant as we didn't leave the the Bay for the whole week! Although we stayed on a b&b basis we ate in the hotel restaurant every evening because of the quality of the food and the fantastic view. Will be there again but maybe not August as the resort was really busy and there wasn't much space on the beach and car parking can be a real problem.

Very varied menu with excellent choices of seafood. The service is very good and the price was fair. The view of the beach is very beautiful, because Tamariu is a small beach and this restaurant has a prime location.

We have been coming to this hotel for many years now and every time we return we enjoy our stay so much we can't wait to book next year's visit.

You can't beat the beach front location, the rooms are very clean and comfortable, a great breakfast in the morning with everything you could possible want. We have received excellent service on every visit, all the staff are very friendly and willing to help with any queries you might have.

Tamariu is stunning location with a beautiful bay. The beach is very clean and safe for swimming. There are also many great restaurants on the front, however the hotel serves wonderful fresh food with a delicious evening menu that changes daily. Their Gazpacho is second to none!

Highly recommended for both couples and families. Can't wait to visit again soon!

Room Tip: You would be mad not to book a Sea View room - a Vista that shouldn't be missed!

I have seen this hotel develop with high standards and now the rooms are spotless comfortable and have air conditioning if you need it.
Staff are pleasant and obliging and the situation is beautiful.
Cannot wait for next year.

Room Tip: Try to get a balcony

Tamariu and this lovely hotel are little pieces of heaven. We stayed for 8 days and would have happily stayed for 8 weeks. The staff and owners very kind and warm. Beautiful food and atmosphere. Enjoy the live jazz if you are lucky enough to be there at the time. It was a perfect holiday. Already looking forward to going back!

Room Tip: Just enjoy!

My husband and I had a holiday in this lovely cove 40 years ago. We had some misgivings about returning after all this time - would our memories of a beautiful bay with a pretty fishing village behind and the stunning location of the Hotel Tamariu be spoiled? Not at all! There has been some progress - there is a new promenade around the bay and the hotel has enclosed the restaurant on the beach with glass bi-fold doors, there are more restaurants and bars but appropriate for the area - if you are staying a while you have a good choice and there are lots of small boats in the bay. However, the beach is as lovely as ever, the hotel staff (in the same family for 80 years but now run by the children and grandchildren) are so welcoming and helpful while maintaining a high level of professionalism. The rooms, service and food are all excellent. We stayed in room 108 with a veranda overlooking the beach. It is a perfect place for couples, friends and family to enjoy a seaside holiday in Spain, in traditional Spanish style. My only concern is that this wonderful little place is no longer our special secret destination - everyone who goes there must love it.

Room Tip: The position of the hotel, on the beach, is so good that all rooms see the sea - but for a little ex...
