If you pay in April almost 200€ per room, you are expecting some especial experience and the bad news is that you won't. Far from this, this beautiful hotel remastered from a convent, is not what it seems. The general looking of the rooms are ok but they have some handicaps like a very bad quality in bed (cheap beds)...

This former old convent a bit inland from the sea is now a lovely hotel with beautiful grounds and a short walk to one of the many beautiful Costa Brava Beaches. It also has an excellent restaurant, lovely hill-side garden and large, secluded pool. While we booked two of the junior suites, I think I might have preferred a regular...

We had a very pleasant stay here, the hotel and surroundings are beautiful and it's a great location to visit many of the lovely beaches around the area. The bed in our room was huge and so comfortable and we had a great spacious room, however the bathroom could have done with a bit of an upgrade. The staff were...

This hotel is a former 'convent', walking space to the very nice Sa Riera beach and in a perfect shape. Breakfast could even be a bit better, but nevertheless... A great place to stay, close to Begur and Pals.

Maybe my expectations were too high, maybe because I visited the hotel years ago, when they just opened and was fantastic. I find the hotel a bit "tired". Anyway the amazing situation and the stillness make of this place the best to relax and enjoy Costa Brava. Food in general is very good, with a complete buffet breakfast or the...

The building of this hotel has been remodelled and furnished to be a very comfortable, quiet and silent place to spend your holidays. It, indeed, is a great 4 stars hotel.
