Having read other encouraging review on Tripadvisor we made an easy and convenient reservation on the Almadraba Park Hotel website. We had an El Bulli reservation (5 years of applying!) and were not disappointed in the the food or this hotel.
The hotel is a little dated (think 70's/80's architecture) but is very clean (spotless) and all the furniture and finishings are high quality - more Swiss style than Spanish. The Property is celebrating its 40th Anniversary in 2010...
Breakfast buffet was tasty and you have the option of dining "al fresco" on their patio with wonderful Mediterranean and Mountain views. (Reminder this is where the Smokers must sit...)
Very nice and helpful concierge; they don't brag about it, but Salvador Dali stayed here for a time in the 70's and they have the autograph/signatures to prove it.
After driving around Roses and looking at the other properties in this area, we will be ONLY staying here if we are able to get another El Bulli reservation in 2011 before the restaurant closes.
We didn't dine at their restaurant, but it looked good and would be worth a try if you had a free lunch/dinner. (We dined at Can Fabes - Sant Ceoni for lunch the meal after El Bulli...another Michelin Three Star and top 20 dining experience in the world) it is about one hour closer to Barcelona on Highway AP-7.
If you have free time, you might also visit the Roman Ruins of Eupheria...wonderful archiological town that is being excavated and has a nice museum with some fantastic Roman Mosaics. Gives you a historical and strategic military context for this region from around 200 BC...
