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...

If you are looking for a quiet, serene peaceful place in a lovely setting, this for you. It is just a short walk to a lovely small beach. Go in the summer if you hope to find restaurants on the beach open. The grounds of the hotel as just as you see on their site. Quite lovely. Be sure to...

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. But, I have to complain about the category of some rooms, qualified by them as “Standard”. Our room was really small. The wardrobe couldn’t be opened because the doors...
