Stayed here for a week whilst completing a skydiving course. The hotel is 25 minutes walk from the aerodrome and 10 minutes walk from the beach (in the summer heat!). My room was overlooking the road but was absolutely fine nevertheless - very clean, comfortable and the traffic noise was certainly acceptable. The pool - over the road - was... More

Very nice room with a balcony and view towards the canal. Breakfast was nice in the restaurant. Some renovation was underway in the hotel, but didn't bother us. Location was very nice, equal distance from Skydive and the beach (15 mins). We hired a boat in the morning to do the canal tour just next to the hotel. Enough free... More

This hotel was decorated in a very eclectic but sort of tired way. The rooms were clean though and good value. Breakfast was quite good and you can pay for secure parking. It is on the main road into Empuriabrava. The restaurant is very good and looks over a canal. There are plenty of services in the area and you... More

We enjoyed a three night stay in this relaxed and friendly hotel. Our room was overlooking the canal with a balcony. Excellent location - about 10 minutes walk from the sea. Very quiet and ideal to travel there off season.

Great location, about 10 mins walk to the lovely beach. Big family room with a patio. Excellent pool, good restaurants across the road, and also boat hire just next door. Friendly staff, car park which is very handy in the summer !

Plenty of cupboards and power points and the wifi speed was alright too. Bed was firm but comfortable and There was hardly any noise. The restaurant was fantastic and Salvatore was a true... More

I booked the Hotel Purtofino on booking.com for a pretty cheap rate, but was very pleased. Stayed for 8 nights, the room was cleaned to a good standard daily with towels changed daily also. They have a lovely bar downstairs (Oceans Irish Tavern - titanic themed) which cannot be heard when in your room. There is also a restaurant attached... More

The interior was quite tacky and the color combinations super odd. Mint colored pillars backed up with sky blue cushions and upholstery and purple walls with beige and brown tiled floors. The bathroom was full marble of different shades and the sink made of bubbly see through glass. The room was very clean and spacious and had a very beautiful... More

We reserved this hotel not having read the reviews, the reviews were less than complementary, so we arrived with a little trepidation at around 7:00pm in the evening. We were met by male receptionist who had all our details, advised us we were to stay in the complex over the road (this is the one with the swimming pool) and... More
