Yes I read a lot about this place, yes it seems like a great idea, great food, and to top it off a really unique place to stay. Reality is simply quite different. Lets start with the service. I get out of the taxi nobody helped with the luggage. I asked the driver to come pick me up at 1330 the next day and the girl who welcomes me told the driver to come pick me up at 12 noon instead. How welcoming!!! I told her but I came all this way from Barcelona just to stay at the hotel I would like to spend a little more time to enjoy the property. She said no but I have to leave at noon because there is nothing here and she is spot on! There really is nothing here. No common area to sit and have a glass of wine and snack or a cup of tea. There are no tables in the garden. She is right. There really is nothing. There is a bed in a glass enclosed space (allegedly where you are and can be in touch with nature and lie in bed and enjoy the change of light). Good on paper but you really can't do this really. There is nothing nowhere to sit comfortably. You eat, sleep on a futon. That's it. How's that for comfort? Bathroom? Oh beautiful but when you try to clean your face there is only a puddle of water. Brush your teeth? Somewhere to hang the towels? And wow the rain shower. Bloody hell the floor is made of pebbles. One can't or at least I could not have imagined such pain while showering. And the only thing you can do is use the towels as foot mats which I am sure all the guests before you did the same thing and just imagine how clean the towels are. They are all in dark green, no way of checking for cleanliness. All in all. I now know what an animal in a zoo feels like except I guess I am more comfortable, after all, I have a bed.
Sorry I digress. So they asked for my passport for check in, I said its in the luggage which they have not yet brought in. They asked me no fewer than six times while showing me the room. I am in the middle of nowhere. Am I going anywhere? Okay I went to the front desk to give them the passport afterwards and to arrange for transportation the next day, and I guess by then I already see that I really do want to leave earlier as the girl suggested. It was 10 degrees outside. I only have a shirt on. Olot was unexpectedly cold that day so i didn't dress warm enough. I asked if I can go into the office because I am freezing. They said no. Again, what nice people!!!
And to top it off, the food is not that good. Don't come, seriously.
