“Disapointing....”
Reviewed 20 August 2006

The best of the hotel was the setting and the view. Despite paying over 200 Euros, the room was very small and poorly decorated. The food was good but completely overpriced. The prices of the wine list completely astronomical even compared to some of top Catalan restaurants. The Spa is run down... no clean towels, dirty showers.... Furthermore, the hotel mainly caters to Russian tourists and nothing agaist Russia but they tend to smoke a lot. Despite the hotel is non smoking we had to put up with cigarrette smoke in the pool area, gardens etc... A big disapointment.

I payed 186 euros a night for a room which wasnt en-suite! I was told I would have a sea view, but instead I had a view of the side of the hotel. The only reason I decided to stay at this hotel was because I thought it would be brilliant because of the price but i was let down very badly! I had 2 single beds to make a double, which would have been ok if they didn't keep spiltting apart! Room service is only available when the restaurant is open! WT- is the point in room service then? :(

First the good points. Fantastic setting in lovely Fenals bay south of Lloret. Staff (particularly the bell boy) were very helpful. Restaurant food of the best quality and very Spanish. Great and not too unreasonably priced wine list. We stayed in Room 65 (Suite Secreta) with Sea View and jacuzzi. Suite perfect with dressing room and roomy sitting room. Sea view actually from bedroom through front window, balcony at side and with limited sea views but caught sun perfectly in later part of day as south facing. Free Wi-Fi (non secured) internet access!

So what's my problem? Very simply the hotel is full of chain smoking Russians! It is inescapable; in the restaurant, in the (very cosy) bar, even on the balcony where it wafts in from the neighbouring balconies which are all open to each other. In northern Europe this is becoming inreasingly socially unacceptable (if not illegal) in public and if like us you find it intrusive do not go to this otherwise impecable hotel. Don't get me wrong, I like Russians but they do all meet the Olympic qualifying distance in smoking and smoking forty a day when you don't actually smoke is not for me. Hotel tried desparately to get us a room with a more private balcony but really there are none. Shame really, though they told us they were going to have a non smoking area in the restaurant from next year!

The hotel is a former monastery, of a very solid stone construction- thus the rooms stay cool but also have an awesome ambience. The staff here is terrific, as mentioned, especially the chefs! Perfect paella, and croissants that still have my dozen or so trips to Paris beat.

We ate breakfast on the patio every morning- the view is fantastic- the photo here doesn't do it justice. The hotel actually has many levels all the way to the beach, which is not too crowded, but has activities in the little bay if you're inclined. Through the hotel we went parasailing and took a boat out on a snorkeling (parts through caves) excursion and to lunch on a deserted island with emerald waters. On the way back my brother and I slept on the netting of the catamaran with the waves rushing beneath us. The Rigat is family friendly but could make a great romantic getaway too.

The Rigat is impeccable, especially compared to the Best Western type resorts in the area. When we tried to check out my dad's credit card was declined, much to our surprise. It turned out someone had stolen the number and charged $5000 worth of "fireworks" in town-- however the hotel was very helpful and understanding in the matter- and even gave us a free brunch while we waited for the agency to open in America and sort it out.

This hotel is simply amazing. The staff is very friendly, speaks several languages, extremely helpful and treats the guests like royalty. The setting is amazing, just in front of the sea. There is an outdoor and indoor swimming pool. There is an aromatherapy steam room, a regular sauna and jacuzzi. The hotel gives you towels and robes to go to the swimming pools or the beach. There is a restaurant. The rooms are extremely clean, the feeling you get is to be in a castle. The breakfast room is outside with view of the sea, just amazing. As soon as you enter the hotel, you hear classical music in the background. The rooms are a good size. You do need a car to get to this hotel though. And once you enter the hotel, you will not want to leave.
