“5* location, 3* rooms”
Reviewed 9 May 2013 via mobile

We spotted this this hotel in January when it was closed, noting the great location on the cliffs on the outskirts of a small resort, Calella de Palafrugell. The location is magnificent with a terrace overlooking the sea and the village seafront. We took advantage of a 30% reduction for over 60s for a room without a sea view. The room had a balcony overlooking a small square with parking and we had no problems with noise. The room was adequate and had a safe, desk, settee, enough storage space and room to walk around but there were no frills.

Breakfast was typical of many Spanish hotels: the usual buffet of bread, tomatoes, yoghurt, small croissants, cakes, a little fruit, meats and cheeses and the option of a cooked breakfast menu. The coffee was not notable.

Having read TA reviews, we did not eat in the restaurant. There are plenty of small restaurants along the sea front to choose from within easy walking distance.

We went to this hotel 12 years ago and the good news is that it has't changed.The staff couldn't be more helpful the location above the rocks and sea is unbeatable.The rooms overlooking the bay are well worth the extra money,large terrace with recliners to soak up the sun.The food in either restaurant was of a very good standard plenty, of choice and good service.We will go back but won't wait another 12 years.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the sea are great

We spent a week as a family. Certainly not perfect in every respect (parking, no pool) but great location, lovely evenings on the terrace or balcony, food that varied between very good and excellent, excellent Mojitos with the waves crashing below.... We had room/suite 107 and loved its seaview terrace and layout. Our daughters room didn't have a window - but neither they nor we cared.

After extensive research, I chose Palafrugell instead of Cadaques as a base for seeing the Costa Brave for driving accessibility.

We love balcony rooms with a seaview and Hotel Sant Roc was our favorite hotel on our 3-week trip in Northern Spain and Southern France. Hearing waves crash on the rocks all through the night is so soothing. Having a glass wine on our balcony while researching (on the Ipad) places in the area to visit which, as other reviewers have mentioned, are plentiful. Our room was on the second floor on the north end which allowed us to pick up a Wifi signal on our deck which was a nice surprise since we read that there was only WIFI in the restaurant and lounge areas below.

The family that run the hotel are wonderful, hardworking, helpful individuals. From front desk to breakfast wait staff to maids, we did not come across any staff member who was unfriendly. They all were eager to please. While we loved the view at breakfast, but never ate dinner at the hotel. Walking into Palafrugell and Lafranc was part of the charm. The hiking trail in both directions was full of breathtaking views. Thus even though it rained one of the three days while we were there in mid October, we loved this hotel and its beautiful location.

The hotel is situated on a hill at the edge of the town. We really liked our room, with it's balcony looking out at the sea. The grounds are very nice, with big trees and lots of sitting areas. We were very disappointed that though it was a lovely evening, dinner was not being served outdoors, as it was already "too cold for Spanish people." However, only one couple at dinner was Spanish! The food was mediocre. The following night we walked into town and ate at a tapas bar, "Calau," which was inexpensive and delicious. A friendly hotel clerk helped us get online tickets to Salvador Dali's seaside home in Port Lligat (near Cadaques). It's a 1 3/4 hour drive from the hotel, but a fascinating place to visit. There are many interesting villages closer to the hotel as well. The coastal walk that starts near the hotel is gorgeous, following the edge of the cliff, with many small rocky coves along the way.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for a sea view room.

We were in Calella de Palafrugell just at the start of the low season, and boy does this town shut down. Hotel Sant Roc was the only game in town for accommodations, so we wound up here. The hotel was established in the 50s and seems to be resting on its laurels a bit, although it does retain a certain (faded) charm. The basic double room had two twin beds -- they don't have standard rooms with double beds for a couple. The shower, unfortunately, had black mildew all over the grout, and it didn't drain properly. I had to cut my shower short for fear of flooding the bathroom. The breakfast was meh. For the prices they charge, I would hope for better overall.

What The Sant Roc does have is a stunning location atop a hill next to the sea. Sea view rooms have breathtaking views. A staircase takes you down to a footpath along the cliffs. But for the price, I would check for other options in town if they are available.

Room Tip: It's all about the ocean view if you want to pay for it.

The Sant Roc is located in the lovely village of Callela in The Costa Brava, overlooking the sea. It is a charming little hotel, run by a local family. The service is excellent, the staff is extremly attantive but never in your face, giving you a memorable personal experience. l loved the rich and tasty breakfast at the spacious terrace in the morning under the sun, overlooking the beautiful beach of the village. You can get a lovely view from here as the hotel is on the top of the hill/rock. Rooms are clean and modern but really stylish with some elements of antique design. The beds are amazing, I had the best sleep in ages in this hotel. There is a good wealth of history attached to the building and the area itself, really interesting. Location is great, if you drive you can easily go and visit nearby villages and cities. I would love to come back here again for a romatic getaway, it is just a perfect setting for a couple. Thank you for the staff for making my stay such a nice experience.

Room Tip: Try to get an upstairs room overlooking the bay or the sea, amazing.
