Best for The Beach - Expert review of Hotel Llevant
For me, this has got pretty much everything you could want from a beach hotel. It’s smart, tasteful and modern, without being too self-consciously ‘designed’. It’s also got the friendly, personal touches that you get with a family-run hotel.
Right on the main Llafranc promenade overlooking the bay with its fabulously blue sea and fishing boats. The sandy beach is literally seconds away and Tamariu with its sandy cove and the larger beach at Calella de Palafrugell are both within easy reach. You’re also close to Girona, the medieval villages of Begur and Pals, as well as the Salvador Dalí museums in Cadaqués and Figueres.
The 26 rooms are bright and airy, with crisp, white walls and tasteful, modern furnishings. It’s obviously worth going for the sea view rooms with either balcony or terrace as the views are fantastic, but the other rooms look out onto either a quiet side street or an internal patio or an interior patio. I particularly like the little touches like the complimentary slippers and 100% cotton bedding which makes it feel much more luxurious than your average three-star hotel.
The tastefully furnished ground floor lounge has deep red walls and large paintings of the village as well as the restaurant, bar and terrace.
The food here is particularly good. You’ve got a choice of either delicious continental breakfast in your room or an exceptionally good buffet breakfast in the restaurant overlooking the promenade and sea. There’s also an excellent terrace restaurant with set menu or a la carte, as well as the more informal terrace bar for light meals and snacks.
WiFi available throughout the hotel, beach towels.
Friendly and helpful. The hotel has been in the same family for decades.
Couples and families mainly from Europe and America.
Sea view rooms in low-season are very good value.
