Cava & Hotel Mastinell
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Truly unique architecture, hotel has a real boutique feel to it. Rooms are spacious with a well thought through layout, they are immaculately clean and tastefully decorated. Service is in general very good, especially Maria at the reception and Javier in the restaurant were outstanding. Food in the restaurant is truly a gourmet experience, the weekend tasting menu was simply delicious and amazing value for the price. We were able to organize an amazing horse-riding trip through the hotel. There was a mishap with a Cava bath we booked but they handle it very well and to our satisfaction.

Almost no negatives. Breakfast is somewhat basic and could be improved (we didn't get the suggested order, variety / choice is limited and service is below the hotel's high standard). A (whirl)pool would be a nice add-on and there is no real space in the hotel to chill and relax (outside the rooms)

This place is simply brilliant. Funky design, top class service, winning cava, a great tour of their cava production facilities, and a fabulous restaurant accompanied by some unexpected house wine that was equally excellent. Couldn't recommend this place enough for a one night stay (that's probably all you need) but make sure you pack in the evening meal, cava tour and also the vineyard tour by electric bike (though I'm stupid and spent most of the time with the power off). Breakfast is great too - go down for it when you're hungry as there's plenty of it. In short - go here for a night if you're around Barca - you won't regret it. Especially if you like good cava.

Everything that all the other guests have said is consistent to our wonderful stay here, beautiful and modern room, delicious breakfast, outstanding service at the restaurant, courteous and attentions staff! We needed to buy milk for our daughter, and one of them even drove in front of us to show us where the bigger supermarket in town was, since was a bit complicated to get there. The food at their restaurant EnRima was amazing paired with their excellent cava and wine! We felt a cozy ambience and more personalized attention compared to Napa and Sonoma nice restaurants, it's not always that you can meet the chef at boutique hotels. You must try this restaurant even if you are not staying here. We wished we had done the menu degustation in the weekend, but it was difficult with our 2.5 yr old daughter. We look forward to coming back here!

Room Tip: We had the Macabeo room and it was perfect! All 12 rooms have wine variety names, that's clever!

This hotel is a work of art. Set in a winery, the Gaudì like architecture is amazing. Waving roofs, big round windows with a ceramic lattice work, there is nothing like it. The rooms are beautiful and luxurious. The only room that I ever had with a wine cabinet next to the refrigerator. The staff was really good as well with an genuine care for the guests.
The breakfast is excellent but more tailored for relaxed holiday guests with lots of time. Fortunately the staff was accommodating an early rise with coffee and cakes.

The dinner in the restaurant was excellent at a really affordable cost.

This hotel is definitely in my top 3!

My wife and I stayed one night in this hotel. This was a very special stay, design of everything inside is unique (not necessarily convenient, but still produces very good impression, the room looked very modern and unusual, indeed like a cava bottle), food at lunch and dinner was excellent, and what I specifically want to mention is excellent service of hotel staff, from reception to restaurant, this really made our stay very comfortable. We also took a tour around the winery and wine tasting at the end, I could say that this winery produces excellent cava.

This hotel is very uniqe experience. We stayed 2 nights. The rooms are so nice, like little cava bottles, very cool modern design. We got 4 bottles of wine and cava that were included in the room price. The breakfast is amazing and the cook comes personally to ask what you would like. We also got a personal letter everyday stating weather, and recommendations for activities for the day. This is a very romantic place. And if you are a wine lover, a must stay place. There are a lot of other wineries near (like the Torres which is huge, only 10 min walk) to visit as well. We had the 7 course dinner there, which included wine, it was very good, and only 40 euros. I recommend especially for couples!

Our stay here which included the Cava tour was a gift from our daughter who lives in Barcelona. She had visited soon after it had opened and recommended it.
This was the most unique hotel experience we have had, despite staying in many beautiful establishments around the world. We loved the "boutique " feel. The service was excellent, the room over looked the vines and the chocoales and bottles of wine in the fridge were thoroughly appreciated.
The restaurant though small served authentic Catalan food and the wine selection was excellent.
We would visit again and certainly reccommend.

Room Tip: A room facing the vines with the Church on the horizon is perfect.
