Location

On a clifftop above the bay. The main beach at Calella is a leisurely five minute stroll down the hill and the surrounding beaches and coves are all within easy reach. Palafrugell and the medieval hilltop towns of Pals and Monells are a short drive away. Girona is about 40 minutes away by and Barcelona about an hour and a half. There are also regular buses to both cities as well as to the other nearby beaches.

 

Bedrooms

Most of the 47 bedrooms have got sea-views and balconies. They’re traditionally but simply furnished and the hand-painted, carved wooden beds give them a nice touch of character.

Sea-view rooms are only bookable however if you take half-board. Otherwise, the standard rooms look out onto a small, tree-lined square.

 

Public areas

The large shady terraces amidst the pines have great views overlooking the bay. There are also some roomy lounge areas on the ground floor (with gentle, piped music), large paintings of the coast and a large, traditional, wood-burning fireplace but don’t expect cutting edge design here. It’s not really that kind of hotel.

 

Eating and drinking

Breakfast is a buffet served out on the garden terrace. There’s also a cafe/restaurant on the terrace as well as a more formal a la carte restaurant with gorgeous views out to the bay and its fishing boats. Both do vegetarian and children’s menus.

 

Leisure facilities

A ‘solarium’ terrace with sun loungers and great views over to the bay.

 

Service

Friendly and helpful. The hotel has been in the same family for decades.

 

Who stays there

Couples and families mainly from Europe and America.
 

Price advice

In low season, there are mid-week discounts if you’re over 60. It’s also worth looking out for three nights for two offers in low-season.
