Stop searching for one of the best view of the Medit. sea, go to Vistabella and enjoy it. In the best side of Roses, far from downtown and hidden, you can indulge with a 360 degree view on transparent waters...beach is small but quiet, staff is attentive. Try the newly refurbished rooms in 2014, the old ones are a bit "outdated", albeit still fine. You come here for the view and the food!
The dinner, lunch and breakfast can all be taken "al fresco" on the different terraces, so you don't waste one minute without the view....

We recently stayed in this beach front hotel. The room (a junior suite upgrade) was large, airy, and well appointed. It overlooked the ocean and we could walk out anytime even when the weather was not at its best. The breakfast (included) was quite good, and the dinner we enjoyed at its below-the-top-tier (it also has a Michelin star restaurant) was superb.

Room Tip: Get a room with an ocean view, and ask for an upgrade to a junior suite. (Even the non-suite rooms...

We had a fantastic two day break and enjoyed every minute of it. From the moment we arrived the staff was very friendly and helpful.
We stayed in one of the standard rooms and were comfortable and with great views. They've told us that there are some of a more modern style but we were wry happy with our room.
We ate one night in the Balcony del Mar restaurant which had great seafood on a very charming terrace overlooking the sea. Also the barman was great, he served many many great cocktails on the sunbeds on the main terrace. See you next year for sure!

With 4 excellent restaurants, phenomenal location and friendly and professional staff, this hotel has it all. Yes we were lucky with the weather - sunshine and blue skies. But what a location - looking out over the Bay of Roses, directly on the seafront. We stayed in a Special room with sea view. Very modern and clean with the bathroom an integral part of the room. Large balcony gave excellent views and the sunsets were great. We ate in 3 of the 4 restaurants during our stay including the Michelin starred els Brancs (Fabulous!), Pirata - on the beach and La Tapa (best Pulpo a la Gallega that I have ever tasted). The emphasis is on fresh fish and the quality is obvious. There is a costal path running by the hotel where it is possible to enjoy a walk to the next beach or all the way into Roses (about 4km). We really enjoyed our 3 days at Vistabella and look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Special room with sea view - worth the extra money

Fortunately we booked a special price offer for this five star hotel, because for the price we paid everything was really good. Nevertheless, we would have been disappointed if we had paid more. Our room was more of a 80ies 5 star style, quite big, also a big bathroom,but horrible furniture and dirty bed sheets. The sun deck was fantastic and we spent 3 very relaxed days here. The hotel staff is very friendly and apart from the room being old fashioned we cannot really complain.

Dear "angi k",

We thank you for your visit and your kind word about our property.

We would like to inform you that the room rates vary quite a lot depending on the season, room type, nights, demand, special offers, etc.

We would also like to inform you that we have a total of 8 different room categories to choose, which sometimes makes it difficult to choose the right option for your stay. The rooms are mainly divided into the traditional Mediterranean style rooms and the Modern style rooms.

We deeply apologize about the dirty bed sheets, which should not happen. Please next time, when such things happen, let our front-desk staff know in order to solve this problem immediately.

We would be very happy to welcome you again at Vistabella in the future, maybe in one of our new modern style rooms, which you will surely prefer.

Kind regards,

The Vistabella Team

We knew from our internet search that this hotel had direct access to the beach and sea but we didn’t expect finding ourselves living right at the Sea. We arrived late in the evening after a long flight and more than two hours driving. We were greeted by a very friendly staff that showed us to our room and even a late snack. All the stress fell from us after a peaceful sleep and discovering that the sun was shining through our windows in the morning. Intrigued we went to the balcony and were amazed by the view that presented to us: a beautiful sunrise while Spanish fisher boats leave the ports for their daily catch.
Greeted by a generous breakfast buffet on the main terrace we went to discover this hotel. The friendly and discreet staff knows exactly when to make itself noticeable, and the atmosphere that surrounds you is perfect to unwind from the daily stress. We particularly loved the big chill-out sofa/beds on the terrace, perfect for sunbathing. We also took advantage of the Spa/Wellness area, although small it offers everything you need. This hotel make you feel at home being away from home, which is exactly what we were looking for.

The Hotel Vistabella is situated on top of a small cliff in the bay of Roses, between Canyelles and the Bonifaci beach.

It is the ideal hotel for a quick getaway or to spend your holidays. “In Roses the best sunsets of the whole country can be seen…”, wrote Josep Pla, a famous writer. These sunsets together with the spectacular views of the Gulf of Roses award a unique environment.The gastronomy is very privileged in the hotel, with a wide offer, where the client will find different restaurants to choose from. ... more   less
