Hotel Cap Roig by Brava Hoteles
Ranked #12 of 32 Hotels in Platja d'Aro
Reviewed September 1, 2012

If you want charm and a relaxing stay, friendly staff, good food then this is for you. If you want a cold glass gin palace with no one talking to you then its not. Breakfast was so enjoyable up on the top of the hotel with a wonderful veiw. Room was spacious again with a great view and cool breeze of the sea. OK I was there in a less busy period but still charming and i would go back again.

Room Tip: Go to the rooms down the cliff they are cool and quiet.

Impossible to stay in the pool (under dimensioned), sun shade broken (all) sun beds broken (most), wifi not working, VAT not included in the prices for the Bar (?). The parking is a nightmare (under dimensioned), breakfast time limited to 10.00 am (consequent crowd)....

The high cost of this hotel does not justify 4 stars and possibly a glorious past (the location is wonderful). One night could be enough......

This hotel has lods of charm. Fantastic view and Great direct access to little Beach. Dó not choose This hotel for wifi, tv, minibar because it is not really there. But if you want To kick back and relax and enjoy Great foods it is excellent. Rooms Are clean and in an country style and have jacuzzi. Reception could be better and interior needs a final touch.

Stayed here only one night. Lovely outlook and pool. Fair walk to town. Parking was difficult. Room smalll with tiny balcony, not a panoramic view as some rooms have! Had a fridge but this only worked when key card in the slot in the door so if out of room all day ...... Warm fridge! No kettle. Huge jacuzzi bath which was nice but limited toiletries. Towels can be borrowed for a deposit. Access to beach very easy but would not be easy for anyone with mobility problems. Lovely beach but course shingle so wear water shoes. Lunch buffet good. Pool lovely lots of seats Bur a ridiculous number of old tired plant pots. Dangerous at times as impede movement around pool. Fewer plant pots Itg no dead plants would be nicer also the huge confer trees directly outside many rooms were in need of felling!!

This is my second stay after 7 yrs..Now under new ownership, The views are amazing, the gardens are lovely...the evening meal is very good. The staff are friendly and work hard.Not all the rooms have air conditioning, and ventilation in the bathrooms that I saw do not work, which means that there is a dampness about and a musty smell.. The breakfast is standard and and desserts are the same each evening and dull. There are some health and safety issues....a step going down from the main hallway has a piece broken of which could cause a fall, a stone seat is loose out by the pool, and much work is need outside of the buliding.
\it is like stepping back in time which, I liked.There is a special spiritual energy around the original building, which was a monastary, and it impels me to sing.It has a magical atmosphere if you are aware.
You can step down into the nearby coves by lift or stair and then walk along the coast path,,,It is very dangerous in parts where the rock face and fence has fallen.Hopefully will be repaired...Go rt out of the hotel and over the bridge along a lovely coast path to different coves....and can keep going for a few miles,,,enjoyed the naked swimming in one of these coves,
Life is always what you make it!! Have fun...It is special, but a little overpriced...
The cleaners work very hard.

Room Tip: ask for a superior room with air con if you want it...Not happy with your room? You can ask to chang...

Well... my first reaction was that I had time-warped into some other era. The entry way was lush and full of plants only to enter the lobby and be transported back a few years (think 1970's?). We checked in, went to our first room -- an incredibly tiny room, two twin beds and a balcony sea view blocked by a pine tree. Not good. Went for a second room, asked for a double bed. Went to look...same view, same tiny room, just a double bed instead of twins. Not good. Went for a third. Room was much bigger, balcony overlooked the pool, bathroom had a huge whirlpool and still, two twin beds. We kept this room. After four nights, here are my reactions...
Pros: Fantastic pool area. Lots of seating and a wonderful view over the sea. Path down to beach was easy to reach. Beds were very comfortable. Rooms were clean -- just interesting decorating scheme. Refrigerator, aircon, safe and toiletries were provided. Free parking at the hotel was easy but filled up on some nights. Wifi access was available in the common lounge area and worked very well.
Cons: About a 15 minute walk into town. Not bad, but kind of a hassle everytime you wanted to walk into Platja D'Aro.
Other notes: This hotel catered to large groups of German students while we were there. Since we were on half-board, this made for some interesting problems at meal time. The students would all come at the same time, eat everything in site, take almost all of the tables and run the staff ragged. On the nights when there weren't large groups, the setting was relaxed and peaceful with a wonderful view over the sea. The food was fine - some dishes were excellent, some mediocre, but you could always find something to please.
We commend the staff for working with us to find an appropriate room and for the waitstaff who were kind, funny and always aiming to please.
In the end, I probably would stay again.

A very old sagging dame. The rooms were recently refurbished in a French country style, however the old TV sat on a black Ikea counter and totally destroyed the ambiance. The rooms are small with no air conditioning and you need it in August! The amenities were a bit better than the envelopes they some times give you, but just the basic. The common areas could be nice since there are a lot of nice pieces just very badly arranged. There are also too many plants full of dust. If they had only a few in good condition and in good shape it will be a lot nicer. There is so much potential but it is an old hotel and they always seem to be pretty full so I guess they have no incentive to clean their act or to be friendly. But I think is just the Catalan temperament, short bordering on rude. The friendly people were always from somewhere else in Spain. There is no refrigerator or coffee maker. The breakfast was ok, lots of cold cuts, good bread, cereal, yugurt and pastries. The coffee was from one of those machines with powdered milk it was terrible! This is a very expensive hotel for what you get. The pool area could be nice again if it was taken care of. It does have a great view. The access to the beach is in the opposite side and you have a long walk with stairs. This is not a good hotel for people with disabilities for sure. Free wi-fi in the lobby. Again this was a last minute decision to go back to say good by to my family in Playa de Aro and there was only one other choice, just as bad as this hotel.
