We stayed in this hotel for one night only as the next day we started our way to Zaragoza-Madrid. Cadaques is a small town, so it takes about ten minutes to walk from the hotel to the beaches, though it is located "in the suburbs". The room was nice. Still, instead of a double bed we saw two separate beds just joined to each other, which is not very comfortable for a young couple. The shower is really hand-operated, as you may have read in a previous feedback, but for me it wasn't that awful. The room was clean, the walls aren't dirty at all and there was no problems with noise from the streets. The breakfast was nice (bread, butter, jam, croissants, jamon, sausage, cheese, yogurt, cornflakes, dried plums, milk, cake, tea, coffee). Parking was OK, they even let you keep it for a while after you check out, which was very helpful as we wanted to sunbathe a bit before leaving. The thing that irritated me was that only one person at the reception desk could speak English. The other staff didn't even say simple English words. There was an old woman who was a kind of receptionist, but she didn't even make any attempt to exchange information with us. We asked her some questions about the conditions of checking out and wanted to pay for the breakfast and she spoke to us in Catalan. We told her we didn't understand and she answered: "But I don't speak English, I speak Catalan and Spanish" (in Catalan, of course; after a week of traveling in Spain you start to recognize some words). Her facial expression tried to explain that it is not her problem if we understand or not. My native language is Russian, so I wanted to answer her in Russian and see her reaction. But I was too polite. So, if you decide to visit Cadaques and especially this hotel, try to learn at least some basic Catalan words and expressions.
