We spent 2 nights in Roses Spain, a great area about 2 hours north of Barcelona by car. The city is on a bay with about 3-4 miles of sandy beach. The city is very touristy, meaning that there are large crowds in the summer, with scores of restaurants and shops filled with people. So if you are looking for a quiet getaway, Roses is not your place.
We booked our room as a quadruple, with the hotel stating there would be four beds. However, when we arrived, the room had two single beds and then a couch. The couch had a small pull out mattress, but the expectation was that the 4th person would sleep on a hard couch. When l voiced my objection at the front desk, they said "we don't have rooms with 4 beds" (despite the quadruple room promotion), and further stated that they were completely booked.
The room itself had a fantastic view of the ocean, and included a mini fridge and even a stove (not sure what benefit the stove was as there were not stores anywhere to buy food).
Parking in Roses is very difficult. The hotel has a parking garage you can use for a fee, but it is about 6-7 blocks away.
We drove one day along the coast towards France, to Banuls-Sur-Mer and to Collioure (this latter beach was fantastic), it was about an hour drive from Roses.
Be sure to go to Figueres to the Dali museum.
The hotel has a restaurant but it is very expensive and not worth it, given the innumerable other restaurant options all over town that are much cheaper.
The hotel has no amenities at all (you can't even get a soft drink at night).
The hotel location is great, however rates in August are very high relative to September.
