We loved the Hotel Aatu! It's in a lovely setting with beautiful gardens, 2 swimming pools. Very clean, spare rooms with the biggest white, fluffy towels. Very good breakfast: fresh fruits, great cafe con leche, delicious fresh baked bread. It's in a wonderful location, just steps from the beautiful tiny stone village Peratallada, which is fun to explore & has a number of terrific restauants. The hotel is 15-20 minutees from the sea & the beautiful Costa Brava coastline. But what really sets Hotel Aatu apart is the warmth and care given by Rune & Bernat who run it. They are extremely friendly, helpful & welcoming & make you feel like family-----checking out was like saying goodbye to friends. Nothing at all to complain about.
The two hosts were incredibly attentive, professional, friendly and knowledgable. The hotel is quite small, with a perfect and well designed amalgamation of rustic charm and sophisticated modern style. It is set in beautiful countryside but within easy walking distance of the medieval village of Peratallada and only a few minutes drive from the Beaches of the Costa Brava. The ambience is totally relaxed and relaxing and dining is an interesting and very satisfying experience. I have absolutely nothing to say in criticism of the Hotel Aatu.
Basic facilities for cooking eg no kettle but everywhere very clean. Charges for internet access???
The accomodation was clean and correct although quite basic and impersonal. The cost was very reasonable and as a whole it is good value for money. There is no personality at all in the decoration of the building and inside the flats. The quality of all fabrics in the flat, from towels to bed linen, was extremely low with a very poor touch feeling.
The professionalism of the staff, the size of the rooms and their facilities, and the open aspect of the gardens and pool area at the rear of the hotel. There was nothing which I did not like.
Quiet comfort, most helpful management and staff. A truly pleasant experience which has to be repeated.
Absolute relaxation. Beautiful room (superior double), gorgeous gardens and pool (which never seemed too busy) and absolutely 1st class food. The breakfast was fantastic value at 12.50 euros per person and while the restaurant was by no means cheap, the quality presentation and service was as good as most top London restaurants. The only major disappointment was the the poorly advertised spa and fitness centre. This was in fact no more than a sauna, jacuzzi and two fitness machines. There was no on-site spa treatments (apparently a massage could be ordered from an external company), however for a one hour private usage of the jacuzzi and sauna cost 20 euros and to use the 2 exercise machines cost £10 euros. For what was apart from this a first class and quality hotel where we spent £1000 between two of us for a three night trip the advertising of these facilities is extremely poor and the costs seem completely unneccessary.
Close to the beach. Swiming pool area nice to relax. Service treatment looks like is good if you have money. Restaurant prices are so high. They don't have wifi. You have to pay to access internet. Room decoration is old-fashioned.
The outside grounds were beautiful and it was a very relaxing setting. The breakfast was amazing. The bed was too firm.
Very large and comfortable bedroom with huge terrace. Excellent restaurant service. All food was expensive, no "plain" poolside menu. Daytime receptionist was inefficient and brusque at times.
It was perfect. The owner-familiy does everything for the guest to feel at home.The restaurant ist outstanding.You can't eat bad!!!!! The swimmingpool is a dream.
Well furnished and comfortable bedroom with balcony overlooking the garden as requested. Lovely large bathroom. Nice little extra touches such as complimentary decanter of sherry. Excellent gourmet restaurant and very good buffet breakfast. Lovely sea water pool and garden to relax in. Although the food at the hotel was excellent there were few other places to eat within walking distance. The hotel is close to the sea with a good long sandy beach for familiies and sand dunes (preferred by nudists). We thought that there were prettier and smarter resorts such as Sa Reira, (a short drive away).
Personnel were very accommodating. Room was spacious and comfortable. Pretty setting by the pool. Great restaurant and service. Made you feel like you were someplace special. There were only a few people staying there since their season was over. I wish they had upgraded us to a room with a view of the pool, instead of the parking lot.
Nice grounds with very large swimming pool. Terrace Bar. Large well equipped room. Variable levels of attentiveness of staff.
The large size of the room. The noise of the air conditioner and the fact that people were allowed to walk to the swimming pool through the dining area in the evening.
A very small hotel in a charming old house. Our room with the roof terrace was fantastic, with a splendid view of the village roofs and the surrounding countryside. This is definitely the very best room in the hotel! Good and very friendly service provided by the woman who runs the hotel, so we felt very welcome. We appreciated that the breakfast was more substantial than a standard "continental breakfast" (i.e. including fresh fruit, youghurt,warm bread, cheese etc). The village, Peratallada, turned out to be just as unique as the guidebooks say. No. But be prepared for carrying your luggage up the narrow stairs.
The staff were very welcoming, it was a quirky place to stay in attractive surroundings the lighting in the rooms was too dark for me, would be nice to have brighter lamps
Arched, stone rooms gave this centuries old part of the walled city a wonderfully unique feeling. All paintings in the rooms were original oil; albeit not by masters. The town is a delight to explore with narrow stone walkways and no cars. Fantastic! It was a bit dark due to the smaller windows made hundreds of years ago.
Right in centre of Peratallada (medieval village) so a great location, 20 minute drive to coast, friendly staff, interesting building, free parking
The building itself has a lot of character. We could not access the hotel upon arrival as it was locked and nobody came when we rang the bell. Only one bath towel for 2 guests (this is basic stuff as no doubt the most common type of booking is for a couple and ours was a double room). Breakfast was poor considering the price of our stay.
This hotel was beautiful as was the whole town of Pertallada. It a medieval setting in the beautiful countryside. The hotel had character and was in a very old building, but with all the comforts of a modern hotel. the rooms were quaint, even if on the slightly small side(which is not unusual in Spain). The lady who was working there during our stay was very friendly and helpful and she spoke very good english. It was one of my favourite hotels on our 3 week trip
The spacious accommodation was fantastic for a family of 4. The friendly staff and breakfast great. No air conditioning in room meant it was impossible to stay inside to rest in middle of day for the children.
Set in a picture postcard historical village in old medieval buildings tastefully renovated with restaurants and shops on the doorstep. The receptionist was friendly and helpful too. The only difficulty was finding the actual location once in the village. Better instructions would help.
This Hotel was fantastic - when we arrived we were upgraded to the room with the roof terrace at no extra cost which was brilliant!! The roof terrace overlooked the castle at Peratallada and the surrounding countryside which was incredible - with outdoor seating to sit and enjoy a glass of wine. If you stay at this hotel definitely book the room with the roof terrace it really is worth the extra money! The room itself was also great. Breakfast is included in the tariff which again was great (lovely fresh continental breakfast with chorizo, bread, cheese, ham, muffins, coffee etc). The lady who looked after us also sorted out a taxi to get us from Peratallada to near-by La Bisbal where we picked up the Sarfa Bus Line to Girona. There is nothing that we didn't like - but a bit of background/historical information in the room about Peratallada and also the local restuarants would be really interesting and useful. A mini-bar price list would also be handy. Also travel information would also be useful. If you do not have a car I would recommend travelling to La Bisbal by public transport and getting a taxi from there to Peratallada which is approx 15 Euros. If you do come to this Hotel there aren't really any local shops so I would advise that you bring your own wine & snacks for the room/roof terrace!!(there is a small mini-bar in the room but there where no prices?). Peratallada is an amazing place and this hotel adds to it's magic even more!! Make sure you go!!
