Expert review of Hostal Sa Tuna
The small, pebbled cove at Sa Tuna is one of the Costa Brava’s best-kept secrets. This small family-run hotel is almost on the beach, an is essentially five, classy rooms above the extremely good and stylish restaurant downstairs. It's the kind of place I could happily spend all day reading, gazing out to sea and going for the occasional stroll along the beach.
As I say, virtually on the beach. There are coastal paths you can follow along the rocks round to one of the other nearby beaches and coves like Aiguafreda.
The rooms (three twins and two doubles) are simple but stylish and contemporary, with a mix of Mediterranean sky blues, whites, greys and blacks, with rush matting. All have small balconies with classy wooden tables and chairs, giving you your own private bird’s eye view of the bay, and air-conditioning and WiFi but no TV - although why you’d want one with views like this, I can’t imagine.
Only the hotel restaurant and terrace downstairs.
Continental breakfast with deliciously fresh croissants is served either in the room, on your balcony or downstairs in the restaurant, which also has a terrace on the beach. This is also considered a bit of 'destination restaurant' for locals in these parts (although this stretch of the Costa, despite being very smart, is also very laid-back, so don't think you need to dress up to the nines to eat here). The food is contemporary Catalan with an emphasis on fresh fish and rice dishes (like paella and fideua the noodle version) but often served with a bit an adventurous twist eg sea bass served with curried vegetables or the also very typical combination of surf and turf eg black pudding sausage with cod and stewed peas.
Efficient and personal, as you might expect from a hostal that’s been in the family since 1944. I also like the personal touches: complimentary bottles of water and two apples await you on arrival in your room.
Almost entirely couples. Mostly Spanish, French and German with a few British.
Breakfast is included in the price. Book two to three months ahead if you’re thinking of coming in the summer. September is slightly cheaper.
