We have spent a few days in this incredible place. Very comfortable, excellent service and kitchen, amazing surroundings. This small hotel is located very close to one of the few beaches not developed in the Costa Brava, Castell, a short walk from la Fosca, another very nice and cozy place.

The hotel was clean and comfortable. Our room (on the top floor - which I would recommend) was spacious with a lovely private balcony set into the roof with views over the tops of trees to the sea. We did not eat in the hotel except for breakfast which was fine. The usual type of thing - fruit, yoghurt, bread,...

Returning after 35 years, my childhood memories were poor!! My brother recommended this hotel and I was not disappointed, great location minutes walk from the beach. Breakfast was a great set up for the day. The staff were friendly nothing was too much trouble. Lovely walk into Palamos. We will definitely be back - thank you

Stayed here last October and returned late May. No surprise the hotel has not changed much,that said they have spruced up the bar area. Great stay again,staff very helpful and remembered us from previous visit. Stayed B and B,rooms clean and comfortable and requested a sea view and were given the same 3 single rooms as we had in October....

The hotel had a Fawlty Towers feel to it. Looks like it is run by a family. The rooms were clean but basic ( a shame that the beds were uncomfortable ). However the staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast offering was very limited. A good hotel for a basic stop over night.

A basic hotel, nothing fancy, but clean and good. La Fosca is a wonderful place and this is one of the few hotels there. You can easily walk between here and Palamós (20 min). The Restaurant, with the traditional fluorescent white lights, food ok a bit overcooked. What really surprised us was the breakfast, which was the best we had...

A straight forward hotel that has what you need at a decent price. What makes it something extra is brilliant service and an equally brilliant breakfast. Still run by the same family that once built the place. People who take pride in what they do.

We stayed here as part of a walking holiday. At first glance the hotel looks merely functional, but it's actually quite comfortable, and our room at the side had a nice terrace and electric blinds. The whole thing has a real family feel and the service was excellent and food very good thanks to some good recommendations. Drinks were good...
