“Prestige Victoria is a jewel”
Reviewed 15 April 2008

A lovely hotel right on the sea front but with a private garden and pool. Bedroom, which we shared with our 8 year old, was very clean and tidy with a side sea view. Indoor pool was warm (kids only allowed in the evening). The beach was wide and sandy and deserted in May. Meals were superb. Bar expensive. Most guests Spanish or French or German. We had a very relaxing stay and easily visited Figueres by local bus. Going for another week in October 2008 we liked it so much.

I searched around the TripAdvisor website for quite some time to find a nice hotel, not too far from Gerona (Costa Brava) Airport. Prestige Hotel Victoria was quite near the top of the list, and after looking at many of the pictures and reviews decided to go for it.

Reception - very helpful and attentive. They really appreciated it when we tried a little Spanish on them, but they can speak English fluently.

Room - we had a double room, not facing the Sea, but despite this, we still could see the water quite well, which was nice. Comfortable bed, cleaned regularly (every day when we were there), nice shower and bath, toilet and bidet.

The hotel is excellently situated if you are looking for somewhere a little away from the main shopping/away from loud music. It is located at the end of a very nice beach - the hotel gardens lead right onto the path beside the beach. Unlike all other hotels we saw along the Roses beach, the Victoria has a nice private hedge around the gardens, so passing tourists can't gawk at your sunbathing body. :) This does take away from the view of the Sea, but has its benefits as well.

The pool is quite small (no bigger than 10m at its widest points) -it was freezing in early May,and we only went in a couple of times, but I would think it would be nice in summertime. There is also a children's pool (about 40cm deep I think), also very small.
Lots of loungers, with cusioned pads.

Food was really good - lots of variety - definitely not chips with everything - in fact I saw chips once in our 5 night stay. Fresh fish, varieties of meats, lots of fruit and vegetables, and salads. Variety of desserts (I preferred the savoury food to the choices of desserts). We were on a half board stay, which had a nice breakfast, including eggs, bacon, (sausages or hash browns), pastries, fruit, cheeses, cereals, bread etc

Entertainment - repetitive one-man-and-his-keyboard stuff. Fun at first, but got pretty boring by the end of the week. Nice bar area, including internet access (paid), and a WiFi area there too. Drinks were a little pricey for my liking (€2 for a Coke, cocktails at €6), but nothing outrageous for a hotel I suppose.

Spa - we loved the spa area - they had a small indoor pool - about 5-6m long - very warm (especially compared to outside lol), a steam room which was great, sauna - all of which was included - they had loads of other extras but we didn't have any massages or other treatments.

Other guests - maybe we hit a weird time, but we met no other guests from the UK, everyone was from Spain, Germany or the Netherlands. No problems with lager louts when we were there - very peaceful and quite a classy place to stay.

Getting to Roses from Gerona was a little tricky. There is a coach service which runs from outside the airport terminal (didn't run on Sunday evenings, so watch out for Ryan Air schedules). Very reasonably priced though. Train goes from Gerona to Figueres, nd there's a 30min coach from Figueres to Roses. There's a shuttle bus (€1) from the centre of Roses around the loop to the various hotels, so don't spend €10 for a taxi!

After travelling around on coaches etc, I think next time we'd hire a car (roughly €100) to get to places like Empiriabrava or Figueres, or even just a supermarket to get some supplies - most of the supermarkets are located on the main road into Roses from Figueres, which is quite a walk.

All in all, I thoroughly recommend Hotel Victoria.

  • Liked — Great food, great location, great staff, felt classy - very nice spa
  • Disliked — Limited Tv Channels (really had to think for something - we loved it here)

Price vs quality - excellent value for the money! We were unexpectedly but pleasantly surprised to see how clean, modern and luxurious the hotel was for a 3 star! Buffet food nicely varied and above average for such a package. Beach right outside the door, couldn't be any closer and so safe for the kids. Nightly entertainment was entertaining. Staff also very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended. Don't want to spread it around otherwise too many people will go and we won't have room anymore!

  • Liked — Modern interior, felt luxurious and food was good
  • Disliked — No airco in the hallways.
  • Tips/Secrets — For excellent price vs quality, book out of high season, otherwise still good!

My family and I went for a weekend in the Costa Brava and decided to stay in Roses because the hotels were easy to reserve by internet. The price-quality was right on at the Victoria which is 3stars, and the breakfast was plentiful and varied... american, french, spanish... everyone was happy! Nothing starts early (breakfast 8am to 10pm, lunch 1pm to 3pm, dinner 7:30pm to 9pm) which was tough on my american parents who like to eat at 7am, noon and 6pm. But there was something that pleased everyone at each meal, even my spagetti-eating 9 year old... I would come back again, but be prepared for the tourists, there are ALOT of them everywhere!
