The Hotel is situated close to the seafront, about 5 mins walk. Our room was very clean, fresh and comfortable. The Hotel is very quiet and has a lovely swimming pool that never needed towels on sun beds at 6am, however some people still do that!!
We were on a room and breakfast basis, (the hotel do not do evening meals), and the breakfast is excellent. It is buffet style with an excellent choice. If requested they will freshly cook eggs in just about any style for you. The restaurant staff are very helpfully and friendly especially the restaurant manager who is exceptionally friendly and goes out of his way to meet ant requirements asked of him. Our towels have been changed every day, and the room is serviced to a high standard.
If I was critical, perhaps the TV could be upgraded as the one in our room was quite dated. However we don't go on holiday to watch TV so it didn't bother us. Certainly recommended.

Room Tip: The Hotel has rooms which all have a view or partial view of the sea, and also apartments that overl...

We stayed in an apartment off season (12th & 13th April) I booked a great offer which included breakfast. The apartment was great with dishwasher, hairdryer and we got an upgraded to a two bed apartment which was perfect for my 4 year old daughter. I managed to cook lunch and dinner and the apartment is well equipped. The pool area is lovely (although it was freezing) good size with a nice slide and kids minipool. There is also a shower room near which would be pefect for after check out. The location is idea and we took a 5 min walk to the beach which is ideal. Upon check-in we were a little worried with the old fashioned decor of the hotel but it didn´t bother us because our apartment was fine.
The breakfast is amazing and I didn´t turn down the copa de cava!! but the fish yes. They offer everything and will do even more if you ask ...eg.. bacon, eggs, I asked for a ¨proper coffee¨ not the machine and it was no problem (in other hotels im always charged for it but not here. I was really pleased with the hotel for the price it´s great and suited us perfectly...in fact on check out we re-booked to return next month , same apartment !

We stayed at Port Bo in September and it was fantastic just as we remembered it was 9 years earlier. The high standards of cleanliness and the buffet breakfast were just as we remembered excellent. Staff are most helpful and polite and we cannot think of anything that could be improved. It is a family run hotel and they do it so well and we look forward to our next visit Thankyou.

Room Tip: Unfortunately no rooms have a direct sea view but may get a slight sea view from the top floor

The hotel has good location 5 min from the beach the view of the sea can be seen from the room.
The breakfast buffet is good with full of variety The parking is 2 min walking. The room maintenance is poor but clean. The free WiFi works in public area's but connection is poor.
The overall feeling is that the management try to save money on your back.

There are three things that make this hotel really shine:
First, the friendly staff. Second the amazing breakfast buffet. And finally the pool.
There are probably places that are a little more convenient to the beach (although it's really hard to complain about having to walk three block to the nearest beach), but other than that there are really no downsides to staying here.

Hotel Port Bo has taken the word friendliness to a new level. Staff say will greet you with a friendly "Hola!" spontaneously, whether at reception, breakfast or when running into the cleaning team. Everything is performed with a smile. This family run hotel has convincingly put the care of their guests on the top of their list and this more than compensates for the lack of design & luxury.
The location could not be better, in the heart of Calella de Palafrugell, one of the most charming villages in the Costa Brava and only a few hundred meters away from the beaches.
Breakfast is a feast, not in the least thanks to Xavier always having a few kind words to share (in many different languages).
Wifi is available in communal areas (lounge and swimmingpool) but we had no connection in our bedroom.
