The view was beautiful. The room was very comfortable and the family running the hotel were very friendly and obliging as was the small staff. Although we wanted a quiet hotel we felt it to be a little too quiet. We would like to have been able to have a quiet drink in the bar or on the the terrace when we returned at night but there wasn't any bar to speak of and the lights on the terrace were always switched off. One other small thing was the lack of any mirror in the bedroom. A minor inconvenience but became slightly irritating as the week went on.
Lovely quiet location, spacious rooms, comfortable bed. Breakfast was excellent and beautiful views from balcony. The location on a steep hill makes it a hard walk up from the port on a hot day but for active people like us it was not a problem. Needed a fridge in the room to keep water cool.
we loved the peacefulness and simplicity of this hotel. It was such a shame that the weather wasn't good enough to swim in their lovely infinity pool. It had a beautiful location above the town of Llafranc. I didn't realise, even after reading all the reviews, that there was no restaurant at all.Only the room for breakfast. It was also a pretty steep climb back up to the hotel from the town. Good for getting your heart rate up, but not if you were disabled in any way. A bit surprised it had such rave reviews.
The gorgeous views of the water from our room and patio and from the breakfast patio - a superb location! The owners were very helpful and friendly, and recommended a great restaurant for lunch. The breakfast had plenty of choices and delicious coffee. And there is a coastal walking path from the town of Llafranc with beautiful views. I would love to return!
The staff were helpful, friendly, and treated us like family. Everything was clean and beautiful. The breakfast outdoor area and breakfast choices were fantastic and the best part of our trip to Llafranc. We were impressed in every way. The location of the hotel is set back from the beach which was nice since it was a short walk, but felt like a bit of a retreat from the busyness of the beach crowd. No.
Family run and very friendly. Rooms excellent and views superb A steep walk down to the beach and restaurants. For summer a swimming pool would be nice
Friendly owners, attention to detail (e.g candle lanterns in the garden after dark). Large, comfortable rooms and de luxe bathrooms. Clean, new swimming pool with plenty of loungers. Beautiful views of the bay and within walking distance of lots of places to eat. Comfy sofas in the bar area would have been nice, as would a greater variety of fruit and cereal in the breakfast buffet.
Staff was very attentive, sent out of their way to satisfy. Location is good, short walk to the beach and town. Breakfast was only fair.
It is with pleasure that we confirm this hotel, its location, the absolute quality of every aspect of the building, the rooms,the services, the pool and outside relaxation area, is one of the most pleasant holiday experiences that we have had the joy of receiving. The welcome and the services that the lovely owner family provides makes everybody feel, just that, a part of a family on holiday. The additional benefit of the most fantastic peacefully quiet location on the hillside overlooking the bay of Llafranc with its open and wide ranging, stunning views endorses the speciality of the place. A marvellous holiday experience. Not a single thing
nice breakfast til 1pm, peace, calm, freedom...
Second time we have stayed at Terramar. Very good location in a lovely seaside resort. Staff friendly, helpful and efficient.
Cleanliness and friendliness of staff
Beautiful location in a beautiful and classy town. Tranquil and relaxed, right on the beach. Internet was borderline unusable.
staff were very helpful, food delicious, breakfast great, position excellent right by the sea
Friendly, courteous and welcoming. Clean, well appointed rooms. The bar staff could have been a little quicker and a little less forgetful.
The setting was delightful, but we left 2 days early It was too, too quiet. It did not have a separate bar area to have a drink in a relaxing atmosphere, there was a total absence of entertainment, not even any background music
View from the room
facilities/service and location
All staff were very polite and professional. We were allowed keep our room for the day of departure as we were not going to the airport until eveing. As the weather was unseasonally cold, I think a fire (there is a fireplace) in the bar/restaurant would have been more inviting and cosy
The room was clean, comfortable with an excellent sea view between the pine trees opposite and exactly as requested. Restaurant service possibly suffered from an end of season reduction in staffing levels. Reception staff were generally pleasant but our welcome left a lot to be desired. The expensive breakfast would have been a more attractive proposition had the terrace restaurant, which did not open until 11am, been made available.
Very relaxed surroundings and a pleasant village to visit. Good save parking. Helpfull staff. Nothing to complain about.
The location was fabulous. Very important to get a sea view room over the cove at Tamariu. Mattresses were very hard and there were only twin beds.
the view above the beach
Hostalilo Hotel was a fantastic postion over looking the bay and 15 steps to the beach. No air conditioning! Booked triple room which was a double with extra camp bed.
nothing! staff were like gestapo especially at breakfast and food was appalling
Location overlooking the beach. Room was hot and stuffy at night.
I really only used the room to sleep which was lucky as it was not at all cosy. Close to the beach though which was nice. very old old furniture, strange layout - it felt a bit like we had been stranded at fawlty towers...
Wonderful veiw from my room Breakfast was very poor
Comfortable rooms without any luxury but big enough and clean. Great location and views. Helpful and friendly staff at the reception.
Setting and surroundings
Simple, unassuming hotel in excellent location a few steps from the beach. Newly done out in a plain but attractive and clean style. Reasonably spacious room for type of hotel. Small balcony with view of beach. Very helpful and friendly staff. Superb omelette freshly cooked to order for breakfast (cook's own chickens!). Two disabled parking spaces opposite entrance. Otherwise parking difficult near hotel but plenty of spaces on street 5-10 minutes walk up the hill. Reasonable price for the area and location. Could be some traffic noise at night and early morning (emptying dustbins) because hotel on bend at bottom of hill.
Nice place, 20 meters from the sea. comforable rooms, good breakfast, and a really enthusiastic chap running the place. All good.
We love Llafranc and La Muntanya is a very good value in this small town with not a lot of options. It's just one block in from the beach, is clean and comfortable and the manager makes fabulous custom omlettes for breakfast! We would definitely stay here again!
proximity to beach and restaurants
Helpful and accommodating staff. We needed to leave early one morning before their scheduled breakfast hour and they arranged for us to eat earlier at another hotel they own just a block away.
Spacious room for a 2 star hotel, good breakfast, ideal for beach. Parking may be up steep hill nearby. Hotel should make this clear in info.
The Muntanya offers fairly basic bed and breakfast accommodation but being centrally located in the small town of Llafranc, with gorgeous views of the sea and coastline, it proved to be an ideal place for entertaining our family. Incidently, we had a room on the top floor which opened out onto a huge roof terrace - great!! Breakfasts could have had a wider choice of cereals for breakfast - only cornflakes.
Excellent location. Good modern room. View of sea. Pleasant staff. Very good breakfast. No parking.
Friendly reception, clean, comfortable bed, very nice breakfast buffet. Difficult to park close.
perfect situation, excellent, creative cooking, great friendly staff. A great place for a relaxing break
Lovely hotel in great location looking out over the Llfranc Beach. Ample parking and fantastic restaurant. A drink on the Terrace is a must for taking in the views. Try and get a sea view room as the internal rooms have no views which was disapointing.
Stunning location, tastefully modernised, great food and general feeling of excellent value for money.
Very friendly staff who were very helpful. Views and lovely balcony overlooking sea
It was a very clean and bright room, really wonderful staff and the hotel was beautiful. The lights in our room however, were not very good and we didn't have a table for our balcony like the room next door did and the tv volume was too low. Our room was also above the kitchen so it was really noisy! The hotel is gorgeous though and so friendly.
I liked the Casamar because of its location and wonderful food. The hotel staff are all very friendly and made our stay very enjoyable. It did not matter whilst I was there but, in hot weather, the bedroom might have been uncomfortable because of the lack of air conditioning
Both the evening meal & breakfast were excellent. The staff extremely helpfull and friendly.
Comfortable hotel a short walk from wonderful beaches and seaside restaurants. Free parking (limited spaces) and a generous breakfast are included.
Alga is a very quiet relaxing hotel, the food was great,especially the wonderful breakfast. Staff very pleasant and helpful.Beutiful gardens I liked the fact we could have breakfast outside and lots of tables dotted about outside where you could sit and read. maybe some entertainment at night but then we were there in October possibly there is high season We had read about jazz in calella and after a few days we discovered it was on in palafrugel we thought this could have been advertised
Wonderful extensive gardens, huge swimming pool, excellent breakfast, very clean, staff very friendly and helpful. The noise from the air conditioning unit which was located outside our room. As it was hot at night, we had to keep the window and door open, and it was noisy. If we had had a room overlooking the gardens, we would not have had this problem.
Lovely grounds with well maintained garden and pool, the staff were extremely helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay The room was a bit chilly at night - although we were staying in October so expected the nights to be cool
Free upgrade to superior room (because it was a quiet time). Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent breakfast with wide choice. Good value fixed-price dinner.
The staff were very attentive and extremely helpful and friendly, especially when we had problems with our hire car, they did all the liaison with the local garage
relaxing garden, free car parking meals at a resionable price
The Gardens are beautifull and very relaxing. A must is a balcony with garden/ seaview. The buffet breakfast was a great set up for the day, the hotel itself was very tastefully decorated. There was no information in the room re breakfast times, fire safety, how to book the hotel restaurant, towel availabilty for the poolside. a small fridge and iron/ironing board would have been nice in the room.
Friendly helpful staff. good food. proximity to beaches. excellent facilities mattresses too hard as were pillows. not enough power points in room
We expected the hotel to be on the beach, however the nearest sand beach is a 20 minute walk away.
This is an exceptional Hotel; lovely setting, well developed and maintained, fantastic staff, superb food and great service. That we could not stay longer.
The landscape around, the food and the staff. The fact that I could not use my computer at my room (no Wi-Fi in the room)
Hotel's restaurant I found the price per night too high compared to the hotel category: for the same price it's possible to stay in the heart of Madrid in a 5 star L hotel (I did)
The views over the sea from the terrace resturant were lovely , breakfasts excellent, pool area good, staff friendly and helpful. there was no coffee/ tea making facility in the room. could only eat in the terrace resturant in the evening if you ate al a carte.
Peaceful and beautiful views
friendliness and courtesy of staff - nothing seemed to be a bother. quality of the food on the snack menu - put more detailed comments on hotel questionaire
Awesome staff, especially host in restaurant. Made our visit especially enjoyable. Seaside room was great! no
Lovely hotel with friendly unpretentious atmosphere - great breakasts and fab locatio
Localisation, nice atmosphere in the hotel, service, cuisine !
The view from our balcony was magnificent. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The food was rather mass-produced and was not good value for money.
great location, great views very boring. Nothing to do at nights. Perfect for people over 60
The views Rooms are spacious, however the decoration is very outdated
Beautiful Tranquil setting with amazing coastal and sea views.
Splendid view, isolated and very quiet location. Nice buffet breakfast with special attention for food allergies; small pool but very well kept; nice walking path to the beach. Airco in the fitness room did not work; hasty service in the restaurant at dinner time (no room for an intimate dinner)
The setting of the hotel is superb, and the bedrooms and bathrooms excellent. Apart from breakfast which was good, dinner was very poor. It was basic institutional cooking and must be improved.
it was veery relaxing , staff were very helpfull , food was enjoyable , great location , went home happy to have stayed there. I would have liked a different menu with a colder than i would normaly prefer a slighty wider choice to choose from , the staff were very friendly & the restaurant was well run but i would prefer the food was a touch hotter.
Breathtaking scenery This hotel would be very difficult to find without a gps.
beautiful position...clifftop...a bit seventies but a good hotel with beautiful views breakfast
We had a very well maintained comfortable room with a beautiful view. The hotel is located in a fantastic natural setting, somewhat isolated and therefore quiet. We very much liked the room, the restaurant and cafe, the pool and the beautiful location. We thought the restaurant food was priced high and there are no alternatives at this location. We appreciated that the hotel also runs a cafe for smaller meals at more convenient times, for those not used to Spanish meal times, especially dinner. For breakfast there is only the expensive, but excellent, restaurant with a large buffet breakfast. There are no good alternative easy to reach restaurants nearby.
The location is very tranquil although I think that was because the hotel was quiet when we were there, it would have been a very different scenario during school holidays. The decor is interesting and the pool area looks very nice, and the gardens are well landscaped. The reception staff are 'cold' and not very professional. Also the restaurant food has gone downhill since our last stay 18 months ago.
La Malcontenta is a very charming hotel, where you find a very quiet environment, an historical building renovated with style, very comfortable suites, amiable and thoughtful staff and a wonderful garden with swimming pool. We enjoyed the place tremendously. We just regretted not to be able to stay longer.
golof, sun, sightseeing, eating slightly understaffed
Airconditioner did not work
Great breakfast. The rooms were very large, clean, and comfortable. They have a great pool and are a 2 minute drive from a beach or about 15 minutes from nicer beaches in Begur. Overall this was a great escape. We were there mid-week. Things seem to get busier towards the end of the week with weekends breaks. Work around the grounds (mowing grass, etc) should be done at times when guests are not trying to enjoy the pool. This may have occured because we were there mid-week and it was not very busy. Hotel staff could be a bit more knowledgable in suggesting places to dine in the nearby area.
It was a beautiful hotel, the building and fittings are top class and the position of the hotel was just what we were looking for, peaceful quiet with lovely walks all around
one of the most beautifully appointed hotels ..elegant, stylish and so very well-maintained. It isn't convenient for those who wish to be near other facilities. No options re: food unless you have a car and can drive in and out to Palamos or one of the other nearby towns.
Delightful hotel, wonderfully stylish, very classy. The couches in the lobby are great for a cosy reading session. The bikes were very handy for the ride to the beach.
Beautiful and peaceful setting. Excellent lunch and attentive staff in the restaurant. Used hotel bikes to cycle to the beach Quite an eclectic style which was not to my taste. Outdoor swimmming pool not heated
it is very relaxing and beautiful surroundings
the location was good, the staff was friendly very old furniture and the carpet was ancient, it was like the hotel was stuck in 1969... I was missing what I think are basic things in the room, like a kettle and a couple of cups. There was no "pampering" feel to the hotel at all. The rooms all had twin beds even though we booked a double room - I didn't like that at all...
The staff were kind. If I have to pay extra to have a double room I expect to have a double room. The beds were appauling and had crumbs in from previous customers. The bathrooms were far from acceptable. All in all very very disappointing.
beautiful grounds, easy walk to sea
outstanding setting, grounds, patio and food, as well as location to town and beach. need few more amenities in room, such as Kleenex, shower mat and bathrobe.
Beautiful building, restaurant terrace and gardens. Good bar and restaurant service. Small, dark room that looked out onto a rock face two feet away and was directly above the reception and phone. Inexperienced receptionists. Electric bicycles, as promised on their website, didn't exist.
Relaxing & quite Did not dinne in the restaurant as there was no one else there.
Food. Pool. Staff and Service. Room was small for 4 people
The location is really scenic and special, with a short walk down to a lovely beach. Service and staff were very pleasant and helpful. All in all very relaxing and restful. Pool great for kids. Gym facilities are in need of some investment and attention.
Stylish hotel. Wonderfull garden and pool.
Beautiful setting, lovely gardens, large bedroom, a very pleasant hotel for a quiet relaxing break
We thought the staff we absolutely terrific and super friendly and accomodating. The location was terrific and the pool and patio was gorgeous. Breakfast was a real treat on the patio. Its an stunning building overlooking the hills. The bed needs to be upgraded. Its quite uncomfortable. Also the bathroom needs upgrading. The sink is very small and the shower is super slippery. You have to hold on while you wash to make sure you don't slip.
Very peaceful, high quality feel, great location - we will go back
Very friendly staff, beautiful location, clean and comfortable, relaxing, would highly recommend
tranquility and lovely staff and very clean
It was just as we expected. Very calm and peaceful. A good location for seeing much of the Costa Brava, and lovely to come back to at the end of the day. We slept really well becaise it was so quiet, and the breakfasts were lovely!!
The owners were very friendly. There in no busy road nearby, so it is quiet and it is very relaxing to lay by the pool or have a short dip in it. Also the fact that there are a lot of olive trees and vineyards around made you feel being secluded from the busy world.
My family and I have traveled extensively throughout the world and without a doubt our experience at Ses Arrels was one of the best. The staff was incredible, the location was amazing, and the food was outstanding. The hotel was extremely sophisticated yet very, very, family friendly. Ses Arrels is a truely gem.
The place, the comfort, the silence, the enviroment. Close to the main road, and enough far to get the silence and good air.
Very peaceful rural location, large modern rooms, great pool. The breakfasts were lovely and the evening meals were excellent - 24 euros for a 3-course meal and really fresh - a lovely place to stay for a realxing break. We tried to extend our break but unfortunately the rooms were all booked (only 14 altogether)
Lovely room with large additional lounge area. Very quiet location. The ham at breakfast was the best we had during our holiday! Restaurant was closed - we were the only couple staying- but the owner was more than helpful in telling us the best places to eat.
tranquility, but everithing its excellente. I stongly recommend Friendly but poor service
the restaurant, size of room lift (elevator) were not smelling well
excellent selection for breakfast,conveniently situated, close to beach and to tourist area. often had to look for service in the bar.
Decor of the hotel was very nice. Loved the style of the room and the large bed. Food in the restaurant was very nice. Pool area was lovely although unfortunately due to the weather it was not enjoyed. We were surprised to find that the bar in the hotel only opened until 10pm. This seemed far too early. Also there was often no one serving on the bar so you had to wait quite some time before someone came over from the restaurant.
General Ambience Dinner on arrival was poor, breakfasts ok (just average)
The quality of the hotel and the rooms was excellent. The staff at the hotel were surly, unhelpful and unwelcoming. It was not possible to get a double bed ( two single beds pushed together is very uncomfortable during the night!)
Conveniently situated, bedrooms spacious and light. Pleasant dining room facilities and excellent breakfast. all staff friendly and helpful.
The hotel was very impressive with all areas being very stylish and the service was very good.
Comforting and relaxing atmosphere, attention to detail, spaciousness of the room loudness of the Dutch guests on a tennis tornament ( not hotels fault)
Comfort, Style, Peace ,Excellent breakfast Excellent lunches
The overall standard of the hotel was excellent. Our room was large,modern & imaginatively furnished, as was the whole hotel,- a pleasure to return to after a day out.The food both at breakfast & for an evening meal was superb. We really enjoyed our stay here & would not hesitate to return.
Very quite, clean, good location
very nice and very cosy ,the restaurant is very good,people are very helpful and friendly
Perfect place with charming atmosphere in quiet place. Exellent staff, very helpful Nothing with the hotel as such. Not easy to get this place without precise map or knowing the region
The staff were incredibly helpful, friendly and attentive to our needs. They charge for the use of the spa facility which when paying EUR180 a night should be included.
The staff was very kind. The breakfast buffet was excellent. The Hotel itself was very clean and minimal, the way I like it
This was an excellet hotel for those who wish to be away from the crowds but close enough to all touring places. The spa was available for our use for a small fee per day and we had the entire pavilion to ourselves including a massage . The restaurant attached had some of the best food we had durring our week along the Costa Brava. We enjoyed a quiet honeymoon stay here and everything was great! Make sure to request a specific room well ahead of time if this is important to you.
Wonderful staff and great food. Lovely views
The peace, location, excellent food, nice room The staff were efficient but not particularly friendly, generally I would say the hotel was impersonal. More smiles and greetings would have been nice.Was very glad we were not staying in the grey blocks in the garden, these are very ugly and detract from the overall ambiance.
Excellent views and attractive garden. Relaxed atmosphere with pleasant and helpful staff. Rooms in old part of building adequate for short break.
very pleasant atmosphere
The personal service.
This was a small hotel - very comfortable. It is in the town center and the streets are very narrow. Parking could be a problem if the hotel lot is already full. We had difficulty finding the hotel. Nice resturant in the hotel and great location for browsing shops. The beach is not close. Better driving directions to the actual hotel. We had the map from the web site but the streets were not clearly marked and many were one way. Some streets you could not drive on.
Breakfast was excellent and decor in bathrooms and generally very good Parking was a bit of a problem
very clean and pleasant people we were put next to dining area and were kept awake into the early hours
bliss begur is a lovely hotel. it is located in the middle of a small, sweet town, from which one can easily reach several beaches with a car. the manager of the hotel is very attentive and personable. he gave us useful information about about restaurants and sites to visit. the decor and furniture is modern and well designed. a nice contrast to the old building. we had a great time there.
Staff very friendly & helpful. Hotel very well located 2 mins walk to town centre. Rooms small bur very clean,bright, comfortable & quiet
Lovely, beautifully and simply designed, with stone arches in the entry and common areas, lot of modern furniture and white linens. Friendly staff. Very nice breakfast included. Perfect location in the town of Begur.
Excellent pool area and lovely breakfast - available until 11.30
This hotel provides an excellent value for you money, it is very well located and access to the beach is in within minutes. Staff is outstanding and it really makes a difference, especially the team that attended us during breakfast. Excellent language skills for all the staff which makes the experience even more pleasant. Rooms are a little bit basic but comfortable enough.
Good position in centre of village very close to the beach. Fridge in room useful. Great buffet breakfast available until 11.30 am every day.Nice swimming pool and surrounding gardens. Free internet access and wi-fi.
The staff at the port bo were so friendly they made the hotel a nice place to stay.
excellent breakfast great wifi very clean excellent and good parking
The hotel was very comfortable and breakfast was excellent with a wide choice. I liked the swimming pool which was very clean. Nothing
Clean, quiet hotel with great buffet breakfast and excellent location Female reception staff not particularly friendly. You have to ask for a cooked breakfast which is fine if you know!! It is not a question you are asked or told........
The staff were friendly and helpful, everything was clean, the breakfast was great, and it was well placed in the town to be near the centre, but quiet.
excellent hotel wonderful breakfast friendly staff
