Having just come from a perfect stay at an Agro-tourism Finca with charming hosts, spotless accommodation and attention to detail, our much-awaited and long-planned stay at Ca'n Reus in October was a real disappointment. We had not booked on the basis of the fame or personalities of the owners, purely on the desire to stay somewhere exquisite in this lovely village - and with real regret, Ca'n Reus fell short of expectation given the price charged.
I have communicated with the niche booking website used about the short-comings that were not dependant on the owner's being there . Above all the outside areas need to be cleansed of cats that lie on the sun-loungers, the soft furnishings on the terrace - and much of the outside furniture needs replacing urgently, The sitting area by the pool was rather unkempt .
We had booked the Suite - the view from the Suite and the 2 upstairs rooms are stunning; but the furniture in the Suite was more junk shop than chic. We had to heave suitcases up and down the steep stairs as no help was offered by the staff.
Overall, if you are checking reviews with a view to booking, be aware that the rooms on the street side will have no view - but that is the nature of the narrow streets in the village and is clearly detailed on the Hotel website, and that the Garden room and room under the kitchen will come with some lack of privacy and noise. The top floor rooms and the Suite offer stunning views - but be prepared to lug some suitcases ; not for the less mobile !
Hopefully some attention and expenditure on the outside furnishings and to the Suite ( really needs some TLC and investment) will happen over winter ..
