Good Hotel Guide Review
Built in the style of a Catalan village around the Fornells cove on a lovely stretch of the Costa Brava, this much-loved hotel (‘well run, in a beautiful spot’) was thought ‘truly wonderful’ by a regular Guide correspondent. Set amid trees and rocks on various levels, it has lush gardens with tables and chairs under parasols, and a large saltwater swimming pool with a bar and plenty of loungers. Many of the staff are long-serving. ‘The beautifully converted buildings are very comfortable; some have fabulous views. There is a warm welcome, and service in bar and restaurant is excellent. Sunday lunch was a feast and super value.’ Visitors on their 23rd visit added: ‘The food has improved over its previous good standard.’ Another guest advises: ‘Choose your accommodation carefully. Sea-view rooms in the main building are best, the higher the better; the gatehouse annexe can be noisy late at night, and end rooms hear the hum from the powerful kitchen ventilation.’ You can swim in the sea from tiny beaches or off rocks.
