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.

Guest comments

'We have stayed here for over 45 years, sometimes two or three times a year. The hotel was in its prime when the founder Xiquet sabater was in charge, and when he died ,the family struggled to maintain standards. We feel the corner has finally been turned. Many of the rooms have been upgraded; ours (room 17 in the main building) was beautifully equipped, with stunning views over the bay.The food was also greatly improved. The breakfasts are a buffet and as good as ever. All the staff are wonderful and long serving, but the lack of clear leadership from one supremo instead of by the committee structure sometimes leads to problems building up. The hotel needs to invest in a spa ,gymnasium and treatment centre if it is to survive in a very tough market. We have booked again this coming year, so the lure of this wonderful place is as strong as ever. ' - Ian White - October, 2016
