“A bit of paradise!”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

This is a gorgeous spot in a beautiful region of Spain...this is a perfect balance to a week in Barcelona...the hotel has bikes to ride down to the beach or tour the vineyards nearby on bike trails. The pool is set in a garden and is lovely. The food is delicious and so fresh...not to be missed are the breakfasts and fabulous lunches! We also had a car so it was fun to explore the neighboring towns for dinner...put this on your list!!!!

This hotel was a fantastic find in the beautiful but sleepy coastal area near Palamos. Although it can be a little hard to find off the Palafrugell exit, it's well worth the effort. This hotel is a relatively small property and has acres and acres of undeveloped property that sit between the hotel and the beach. The beach is about a 1-mile walk and is also beautiful. The hotel rooms are spacious and modern, with somewhat hip decor and fixtures such as the 5 x 10 foot walk in rain shower . The staff was really attentive to our requests for help with directions to local sights. You will end up eating breakfast at the hotel because there really is no practical place nearby, and the breakfast is a fantastic spread of breads, cheeses, meats, eggs to order and more.

We had passed by the hotel before , but in April , we finally stayed there .
It was small paradise. The hotel was empty , so they gave us an upgrade . Beautiful , perfect for us and our two little dogs . A great room with small garden terrace .........

The swimming pool was being repaired at the time .

ifnweather is on your side La Malcontenta is a wonderful experience. breakfast is great (although not included in the rate off season), the location very good and the atmosphere bucolic. do not miss hiking from castell to pagrufell. La Galera in Palamos is a good restaurant for dinner. Begur to stroll at night and Cadaques to daydream about Dali and his friends

A fantastic hotel from the location (hide in the countryside closed to one of the most beautiful beach of Catalonia) to the rooms which are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We love this place and come back every year to relax.

This small boutique hotel was the highlight of our trip to Spain! The rooms are heavenly with a bathtub in the bedroom long enough to fit a 6'2" man with wife comforably. The grounds are beatifully manicured, the staff professional, friendly and helpful - spoke great English, & the food amazing and flavorful. The bikes they provided were an extra treat as it is only a short ride to the beach. Cannot say enough great things! A must!!

This beautifully restored small hotel is a few minutes walk or bike ride from a spectacular stretch of preserved coasline in Costa Brava. The rooms, suites and common areas are spacious and simply gorgeous. La Malcontenta is decorated in chic contemporary style while retaining the hisoric character and stonework of the original buildings. The hotel is surrounded by its own lushly landscaped gardens, a stunning pool, and acres of farmland. The included breakfast is superb.
It doesn't get much better than this
