WE have visited many times over a number of years and always have a great time. The welcome and attention from Merche, Pepe and their family and staff is always fantastic. The rooms and garden/pool area are always superb. Looking forward to many more visits. Thanks again.

The location is ok but a bit far from the beach and restaurants. They have private parking though which is great. The hotel looks nice, the rooms are ok but very standard, nothing special. We had ants in the room and even in the bed, the showers by the pool did not work. The staff were friendly and helpful, the...

Great price but not very accommodating service. You have to give up your card key when you leave which means you can't charge your phone or computer. There was only one outlet in the room so I hope you have a multi socket connector if you have more than one device to charge. Breakfast tables are pre assigned and you...

First of all, we want to thank all our guests you for their time and for letting us know their feelings and feedback about our Hotel. Now, we would like to comment on this one in particular. We would like to point out that, for breakfast, we normally assign tables to the rooms. So, in case a lot of rooms...

We have just returned from a week in this hotel. It was our second visit and the owner remembered us and put us back in the same room. The rooms are air conditioned.....essential in the heat and are spacious with TV, sofa and a safe. The bathroom has a full size bath. I think that there are upgrade rooms but...

The hotel itself is a quaint, historic building a short walk from the waterfront in Palamos. The room was clean, the staff was very kind and the free wifi in the room worked perfectly. Great for couples or those looking for a quiet place to lay their head down. If I am ever back in Palamos I will definitely stay...

A lovely, small hotel just a short walk from the bustling harbour of this lively (in a nice way!) resort. The standard bedroom was spacious, well decorated and very clean. Breakfast served until midday - very civilised. Buffet style and even at 11.30 there was still a full choice, hot, cold, cereals, meats, cheeses, yogurts, fruits and pastries. Pool and...

We stayed here a week and were almost sad that our time was over. We had a room in the old building which was spacious and clean. The grounds are also well kept and the pool and Jacuzzi always looks inviting. Breakfast had assigned seating which helps sward confusion.
