Central location and breakfast, associated restaurant was great. Exorbitant price for transferring our baggage to another hotel.
Good central location. Good breakfast selection. This is not a four star hotel. It is a good three star hotel.
Location by the port, market and beach, and view of sea from our room. Internet connection difficult at best, impossible at times. Key cards had to be reswiped every day as we could not get into our room, or front door. Breakfast at another hotel - would prefer cheaper room and to make our own breakfast.
I booked the hotel because there was internet in the rooms. Upon arrival, no internet service in the rooms seemed to be available. No parking space near the hotel. Staff has a very basic understanding of english. The price charged by internet (262 euro/night) was much more than the max price displayed in the room (160 euro/night).
Distance to the beach and the peace and quiet nope
This is a very nice place to stay in Port de Selva, away from the more touristy crowds of Cadaques. The rooms are nice, and the location right on the fishing pier is charming, although slightly noisy in the mornings (I found that part of the charm).
We loved the facilities, food and room. The staff where excellent and we had no problems with languages even though we don't speak spanish, thanks for a lovely stay
The facilities, the location The smell in the rooms (disinfectant?)
excellent food - breakfasts and dinners. located very close to the sea and the centre of roses. nice pool and the interior of the hotel and rooms. the staff did not speak english
Good place, excellent meal, garage. Poor change shampoos snd soaps -two times in five days it is not inaf.
Excellent location, staff very helpful, Comfortable ,large room and ensuite.Breakfast very good and varied. We stayed for six nights late september and we would highly recommend this hotel. Very good value for price. Hard to find fault for price and location Very good all round
Excellent location, nice and home-like atmosphere.
Good breakfast. Pleasant management.
Everything was very good. The size of the rooms, the cleanliness, the location. We went in November so I'm not sure whether the summer months would be a bit noisier. We would definitely stay there again (and probably will in January).
Staff very friendly and helpful. Room was great (we were in the new part with a large balcony) Good location Air conditioning did not appear to be working
Sauna)) Breakfast) They have a problems with the water.
The location of the hotel was excellent, next door to the castle, across from the sea. The coffee at breakfast from a vending machine was a bit in poor taste, especially when espresso machine was available but not included.
The quad room we stayed in was large and comfortable, modern and clean.
Warm welcome from staff,Beautiful Sea View, & excellent Breakfast
Very helpful staff who responded immediately to guest requests(if these were possible) Unable to get a twin-bedded room on the first night but did subsequently
Large nice well decorated room, large balcony with sea views (though we have not selected a sea view when we booked). Excellent buffet breakfast. We would stay there again Parking area is very limited
The staff was friendly and gave excellent directions. The location was perfect, and we liked the grassy area and views. Our opened bottle of wine was not available when we wanted to finish the wine.
Lovely little pool,convenience to the beach, nice terrace and garden. If asked to recommend would say no but it has quite a lot to offer apart from rooms.There appear to be larger rooms with balconies available Rooms very small - two big boys in a small double bed leads to problems - bad odour in rooms especially when starting airco , no balcony
Location and the Services offered Bedroom was rather cramped. Lack of second easy chair. Would have found this room unsuitable for a very long stay.
Friendly staff No
The location on the beach and proximity to the town centre was good as was the outlook for the bar. The air conditioning was not working, the staff were surly and the comfort of the rooms was poor.
Headboards with strangely positioned lights that could touch your head when sitting up
Location, view from balcony, ambiance
The excellent position of the hotel, which was right on the beach and within a 5 minute walk to the main facilities in Roses. Overly cautious staff response when asking to add bar bill to overall room charges i.e. marched to hotel reception and asked to provide I.D.
buffet dinner very good
easy acces to the beach, superb service by all hotel staff The swimming poolwater was so filthy, it caused earinfection in two of our family. This is a well known problem by all medical staff in hotels that dont replace the water often enough.
Next to sea. Our room (211) sea view was blocked by trees, hotel was full so no change possibility... parking was a mess, hotel had very limited parking (even they advertise parking) and they did not know which day I could get the parking slot (probably loudest in the morning gets the parking lots), luckily behind the next corner was private parking (4e/day) which had space and which we were able to use... at the end we learnt which time to arrive to get free parking from the street (9pm).
Perfect location with a modern but comfortable feel. Very helpful and polite staff. We'll be back.
he view of the water and that we had a balcony opening to hear and see the sounds The staff at the service desk was less than hospitable.
I loved the location, friendly service qnd view of the Sea.
Lovely hotel in a beautiful location. Very friendly staff. The buffet breakfast was very good as other options in the area may be limited. Our room overlooking the sea was very spacious and clean. The evening meal in the restaurant was reasonably priced but not very good. The hotel should perhaps consider reducing the variety on the menu and concentrate on quality & taste. This was the only disappointing aspect of our stay.
The best thing about this hotel is its location. We had a room overlooking the sea and it was really nice; the balcony is big enough to sit and enjoy the view. The area is quiet and very nice for long walks on the shore of the sea. The room was updated and nice decorated and the breakfast was also ok. We did not appreciate the cleaning of the room - even if the cleaning service was daily, the sand or dust on the floor and on the carpet was not removed.
Excellent hotel, very good value for money, and lovely staff. Breakfasts excellent. Just a little far out of Roses itself, but easy to drive into Roses and leave a car there. Super position right on the beach with a couple of nice cafes there. Altogether thoroughly recommended
A good hotel in a great location. We enjoyed our short stay. Excellent breakfast. The hotel walls are too hin and you can hear the rooms next door & above. However, they did move us when we complained. WiFi was not available in the rooms.
The staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was very good
excellent second visit will be back again friendly helpful staff clean rooms excellent food.
Hotel location, efficient staff, clean room, big room and bathroom, balcony Breakfast could be better
The price was incredibly high for the type of hotel. For some reason, you pay for Roses which is not beautiful at all.
Staff speaks english; good breakfast, 15 min walk to the beach. The room and bathroom was not clean; dirty towels; ants in the room; very thin walls; no soap in the bathroom.
friendly helpful staff clean room excellent food second visit will be back
Good location Bit overpriced
somebody i9n the reception wasn´t very helpfull with the information
It's position in relation to the town and the beach. It had been refurbished and freshly/ stylishly decorated. Secure car parking off road. Quality of tea and coffee at breakfast very disappointing (watery and little flavour). More choice of cereals would have been appreciated.
We liked the spaciousness and the comfort of the hotel room for our party of three adults. We liked its location - close to public transport and close to the old city. The receptionist when we arrived was a little offhand but later in the week, when I came down to pay our bill, she remembered my name - which is very good considering there were lots of other people staying.
The room was very clean and spacious and I was impressed that when i requested a 'double' room, we were not given 2 single beds pushed together! We also really enjoyed the beautiful sea view.
Cigaret smel every morning,
We liked the central location. Cadaques is a place where you want to park your car and leave it there until you leave. When we stayed in Cadaques previously, we stayed at the Rocamar, high on the hill, and spent quite a bit of time walking up and down that hill. From our balcony at Hotel Octavia we could see a sliver of the bay, which was a very short walk from our room. The room rate was very reasonable, the bathroom was spacious with nice tile work, and breakfast and parking were included in the rate. Also, the internet connection in the lobby was very good.
I consider that a small fridge would be a really useful equipment to be included in the rooms (especially for the customers visiting the hotel during the summer period)
Very friendly atmosphere and relaxing. The staff were very attentive. the garden area had lovely views of the ocean and the nearby beaches.
Excellent location close to the beach and restaurants yet in a quiet street. Free parking essential in Cadeques. Very clean and comfortable with a good breakfast. No
We were surprized to see so stylish and clean place as 3-star Hotel. New furniture, large light rooms, beautiful bathroom (with fullsize bath), big balcony. Wonderfull staff (clean towels every day) and 50 meters to the seafront. Wireless internet only near the reception.
Poor Breakfast and badly organised
Everything. Lovely friendly clean hotel right on the beach The food was good and staff very friendly. We liked it so much we stayed another night at the end of our holiday which we booked direct with the hotel.
The hotel was in an amazing location, you can lay in bed and still see and hear the sea lapping up against the rocks! The staff couldn't do enough during our stay......will definitely be visiting there again Nothing!!
position and comfort off season so only very expensive restaurants open
Excellent hotel, great staff, fabulous location. Slightly dated in a few ways. Smoking in or near the eating areas is a real problem for Californians
Beatiful hotel. Ideal setting. Staff exceptional, friendly, very welcoming. Excellent restaurant, food worth a Mitchelin star.
The service and location
The staff were very homily and made our stay very special.The gourmet restaurant was excellant and also the restaurant for lunch had freshly caught fish which was perfect
Fantastic 5 day break. We will definitely be returning in the future.
Beautiful location with great sea views. Staff were very friendly and attentive without being obtrusive.
Good service When asked about buses to Girona, the receptionist found that a bus went at 1030am, but didn't bother to come and let us know while we had a leisurely breakfast (she knew we were there), leaving us to rush and pack and take a cab to catch the bus! An annoying ending to an otherwise lovely stay
The view, the cleaning of the room, the staff. The ceramic floors on the rooms.
They have a good breakfast buffet The swimmingpool area is quite small, so it is difficult to have a place to sit and you are really close to the rest of the people
excellent condition of the building, rooms etc. perfect location nothing
This is our third consecutive year staying at Hotel Monterrey, Roses, over the Easter Holiday weekend. It continues to remain one of the nicest, well kept hotels that I've had the privilege to stay in. The kindness of the staff and their always positive can do, will do attitude is above reproach.. We will be making reservations soon for Easter Holiday 2011. A special thanks to Emi for her continuing efforts in accomodating any and all of our wishes or desires. It's a well run and well managed hotel. It rates a higher star rating than what is shown. Thanks again for another memorable stay. .... Virg Rogers, Barcelona
The location of the hotel, pool area, the cafe staff. The room was comfortable with a good view even though it was a "side view" of the sea. The free bicycles. The pool was said to be heated but was very cold. The reception staff weren't always helpful (some were, some weren't). For any travel/transport queries they told us to call the bus companies or go to tourist information-they were keen to promote organised tours or their own taxi contacts.
Superb view, easy to find, quiet, very convenient pool. Parking sometimes a bit difficult but that is nit picking really
Perfect location, just on the sea front. Spacious room with wonderful balcony with sea view. Free parking available. Only old people were there. Do not expect any night entertainment or parties in there
A friendly hotel in good location. The pool area and terrace bar are extremely pleasant. This hotel is kept to a very high standard. Our second visit in one year.
Proximity to the beach, breakfast, how children oriented it was. Maybe you could change internet policy. It was annoying asking for the password every 24 hours.
Nice well situated hotel, good breakfast, pleasant rooms, staff very helpful
Great staff, a great location (right on the beach), great breakfast The rooms could use an upgrade.
location and facilites uncomfortable bed and having to pay for spa at weekends even though it was only thursday no iron and ironing board available
Views from room , tea or coffe making facilities in room should be considered
it reflected a personal...family owned .... what a wonderful surprise... we weren't expecting it from your web-site but would have stayed longer had we known... simply a wonderful vacation experience...
Rooms were large and clean with great view of the sea. Air conditioning was not turned on even though it was quite warm. Spa and fitness areas were closed on Sunday when we arrived (this was one of the reasons we booked this hotel - we were not advised in advance.
Wonderful hotel with great staff. Would definitely stay again. Had great time due to their hospitality.
Good location and high class hotel. Was a fair choice for northern Costa Brava northren part tour. Too expensive for what you get. Prices are similar to "same class״ hotels in Barcelona. The spa was far from being impressive, not relevant to winter days.
Feeling of individuality -not part of a chain. no groups
Generally this is a clean hotel with a great location being close to the beach, the town centre and the mountain resorts. The hotel is to recommend if you to explore the sourroundings. The rooms are more on the small side and there was a bad smell of old water in the hallway for several days. Although we prefer firm beds rather than soft ones, our bed was extremely hard and reminded us of laying wooden beams. Although the hotel restaurant has good reviews, the food at the hotel bar unfortunately was not to our taste (blend and uneventfull) is not recommendable.
Nice see view looking rooms, friendly stuff
The seaside view of Cadaqes from the room balcony was excellent. It was not a big problem though, TV's remote control needed a bit of trick to use.(Once we found out how to use, it was OK.)
Friendly and efficient service; delicious breakfast, excellent choices available; relaxing pool and garden environment Freshly squeezed fruit juice not available for breakfast
excelent position, friendly staff but the hotel is a little bit older
Perfect position, fantastic & our room was lovely overlooking the river. Breakfast was very good. Wasnt impressed with bath towels.
Easy to locate, convenient to town centre shops, bars and restaurants, very relaxing. Best of all it was quiet. Charge for essential car parking.
Staff efficient and kind; parking; services; hotel calm Water of swimming pool very cold
Superb pleasant staff, nice facilities
very pleasant hotel, good position right on the sea front. Parking available (daily charge for this). Good swimming pool. Normally this would have been an excellent choice of hotel in Cadaques. Definitely not the hotel's fault but the promenade at Cadaques is being rebuilt, is way over time -- there was no access along the front to the centre for anyone who is disabled. The new works don't look promising for wheelchair friendly/buggy ramps judging from the work which has been finished in the town.
Location was good. The pool area was nice, as was the breakfast. Free Internet also on offer. No notice given of road works outside hotel.they also charged 10 eur / night for parking.
It was exactly as described on the web page.
Easy to find. Helpful pleasant staff.
V ery friendly staff,very clean and good value for money.
Nice quiet hotel, friendly owners and staff.
Very friendly and helpful owners/staff; super clean!!!, good air conditioning and a convenient location with parking outside! Basic but perfectly acceptable.
very helpful and friendly staff. close to bus station but still close to beach. room was small but was given a choice of a larger room but that did not have a balcony.
Breakfast Very sterile, almost spartan.
The friendliness of the staff
Room and hotel spotlessly clean, staff were pleasant. Room was reaonably sized, particularly for Europe. Visited in the off season, so not sure about breakfast facilities, etc.
helpful and friendly staffcomfortable though not luxurious room corridor lighting
Nothing Hotel dated, unclean and staff not highly motivated
Breakfast was very poor, parking was difficult, hotel was dated, no balcony or even a view
We were on our way to Barcelona, and found this place very refreshing and reposing. the hotel was a nice surprise, big suite apartment, nicely decorated and quiet as it's March.Great breakfast buffet. The personel was very pleasant and helpful It's true , it could be a difficulty for parking at peak times, we had to juggle with bags, where we could, as it was busy when we arrived. It was more of a problem for my husband as it is confusing when you don't know the city,
Excellent Sea view and breakfast.
Service and comfort -attitude of the staff was excellent.location near town centre and all facilities was good.Overall a very good choice. Parking was difficult.
Friendly staff, central location, great view No parking, breakfast not great
During the off peak periods this hotel is excellent value. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and include some self catering equipment. The location is good, near the beach and within the old town of Roses providing access to it's many bars and restaraunts. Our room was slightly worn and needed some upgrading but as stated above still clean and comfortable.
We liked the location of the hotel and the room to accomodate our family of four. No services available. No internet connection proposed. No help in the front desk practically inexistent.
Great location, overlooking the beach and in the heart of the town. I had a great room on the front / top floor with a great terrace and sea view. There was also a fridge and mini kitchen in the room which was useful. The hotel was a little dated - think posh 80's hotel - but I quite liked that and it was perfect for my 2 day visit to Roses. The (seafood) restaurant is good. I can't fault it really.
Location, sea view, excellent restaurant downstairs Lack of tea and coffee cups in the apartment, cigarette smoke in the hallways.
Friendly service and beautifull sea view.
A fairly basic but well kept hotel with helpful and attentive staff.
The location was excellent. There was no fridge in the room, and the windows did not open in vertical ventilation mode.
An honest hotel: you get what you pay, even more...
position being cheated on cost
Th hotel is right opposite the beach. The room was adequate. We had a quadruple room and it was a little cramped but still comfortable. The breakfast was very good and the staff were polite and very helpful.
very central very noisy from the inside from neighbouring guests and although the balcony doors are quite soundproof when shut there is no airco or ventilator so had to keep the door open from the balcony and theres a lot of trafficnoice
Easy to reach and to park. Free Wi-Fi only work until 2nd floor. If your room is higher, you need to go to the lobby to access.
Cheerful staff, breakfasts were very good.The location was perfect for walking in National Park and swimming in the sea. Room was clean and comfortable. Very pleasant walking around the town and the marinas in the evenings. The view from the balcony was enjoyed. The street noise does go on all night, so we had to have the balcony door closed at night. The double bed was very small . We asked to be changed to a twin room which was no problem.
Good value for money, clean, nice staff. We staying only one night and the hotel offered exactly what we needed - a nice and friendly place to spend the night at. The pillows were terrible and the coffee at breakfast was very bad
The position of the hotel, the town itself, and general friendly staff.
The hotel was good value, on the beach and an excellent stop over point trevellin back to the UK from further south in Spain. I would not hesitate to use it again
sea view, hotel is located very close to the beach
This hotel is excellent price/quality. Ideal for us. Easy to find on entering Roses. Its location is great, calm area, on beach with great views of Roses Bay. Buffet lunch value at 14 euros. We are oldies, spent one night and really enjoyed our stay. Very clean, quiet, and close to all amenities. Good place for base to tour elsewhere. Parking next to hotel. Staff helpful. Definitely return.
On the beach. swimming pool "large" like a bath. terrible breakfast luckely included in the price of the room. far from the city center and from restaurants.
We had room with nice view of sea and surrounding mountains, the hotel room looked upscale with tiled floor, wood furniture and marble bath. Inside the hotel was nicely decorated with wooden and fresco type painting. The breakfast was simple but good quality. It was nice to have free parking and internet. In addition, the hotel is located just on the beach, which was very convenient as well. I definitely stay here again. It was a problem to make international call, had some problem with activation of my credit card. As result, paid for stay in cash.
Full of cheap package tours, too many people smoking in certain areas of hotel and meals a bunfight. Food rated fair only.Hotel ill equipped to deal with flood water making access to our car impossible when we needed to leave. Please see above
slept well, for it's location it was amazingly quiet. It was convenient for the reasons we were there.
location and the friendliness of the staff, however there could be more variety at the breakfast buffet!
Staff attitude: extremely friendly. Very comfortable bed and above all pillow. Pretty location, breakfast next to the pool ideal. It is the middle of November and therefore very low season. However, the hotel could not offer a variety of drinks and their bar was not really open.
Friendliness of staff and accommodations A little far from the center of town.
Very nice people at the reception and at breakfast.Good breakfast. Close to Dali's house at Port Lligat and to the Cap Creus nature researve.
The location The Breakfast, was very disorganised, almost no food, not prepared to accomodate the number of guests.
Comfortable rooms, nice pool, good restaurant. Isolated - good if you like that sort of thing but there are no facilities or shops or restaurants nearby and Cadaques is a 10 minute drive or 30 minute walk away.
Good quality design, spacious and clean. Very good restaurant. Too far from town centre if you don't have a car. Restaurant closed on Sunday and Monday.(no notification of this) Nowhere nearby to eat at night.
Comfort and cleanliness was excellent Service at breakfast was poor
Friendliness of all staff. Clean, modern, functional decor. Location excellent.Breakfast beside pool very enjoyable.
Very well designed hotel and therefore relaxing
Reception was very helpful and friendly upon check-in, and the room was clean and comfortable. The included breakfast was excellent and offered a wide variety of choices. Nice quiet location about a kilometer out of Cadaques. A 15 minute walk to the Dali house in Port Lligat.
Near of center and sea
A very comfortable hotel at an extremely reasonable price. Outstanding value for money!
The quality of the room and balcony.
A very friendly welcome.
Is close to the beach and shops. This hotel is not worth it. It has not air conditioned and the room was really small. Too expensive for what it is.
nice room, not expensive in low season. no wifi in the room.
ROOM WAS SPACIOUS AND CLEAN ENTERTAINMENT FINISHED AT 10PM - CATERED TO CHILDREN OR PARENTS - POOL IS SMALL FOR THE SIZE OF THE HOTEL AND TAKEN OVER BY CHILDREN
Pool area was very well kept and plenty of sunloungers.Most staff very helpful. Was very noisy and crowded in the evening as there appeared to be a large group staying there. They were not very polite and didn't even make a route to the bar area available. Breakfast again very noisy and lots of pushing and rudeness.
Good location near the sea and good breakfast Nothing
good value for money floor in the rooms - no carpet
excellent location, unfortunately not warm enough to enjoy the great garden an pool. love the room with open bathroom/ jacuzzi and seperate toilet. great tasting food in the restaurant with reasonable prices. Some great home made deserts. missing a complete door on the toilet so you the other person doesnt have to enjoy the smell
The old building was very attractive and the room was unique in its design. The location out in the country was very restful. There was no heat in the room on a cool night. The lighting did not cover important areas of the room. Although the stone sink was very attractive, it was not practical for washing. Instead of the exercise machine in the room, it would have been better to have a place to keep your baggage so that it could be accessed without putting it on the bed
The room was very nice and the restaurant was excellent. The staff were helpful and kind The portable A/C unit in the room was new but noisy and not functional. The hotel would have been better advised to install another system. up to four silent room units can be installed on one outside compressor for probably a similar cost. i hope this comment is paased on as it is intended to be constructive.
Quiet location The hotel did not cater for the English at all. Rooms were very basic, no sun loungers, no parasols. It took half an hour to get a drink. Food was poor.
very sophisticated design of the rooms and the hotel itself; moreover hotel is placed in the beautiful countryside, between beaches of picturesque town named Roses and the national park nearby Cap de Creus, giving you the possibility to admire truly awe-inspiring landscapes; ideal for a romantic trip ;); I would definitely recommend this hotel.
The buildings are very nice and so is the setting - an original farm at the foot of the hills of a nature reserve, away from the concrete blocks of Roses. The staff were very nice and friendly/helpful. The rooms were last removated some time ago and the furniture, interior decoration and facilities could do with an upgrade soon - looks like 1970s right now. Some facilities like water glasses, bedside tables both sides of the double bed (not just one) etc were missing. Breakfast should start earlier than 9AM. We booked this hotel at a 50% discount. On the full rate, it would have been unthinkable.
very friendly staff
Nice sightseeing, nice bedrooms and nice countryside area no separations between bathroom and bedroom (no door between the two), not enough insulation as well
Acceptance of pets, ease of access to countryside. The litter problem is sad.
