“We can't wait to return again!”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

This was our fourth stay at Hotel Playa Sol over the past 14 years; needless to say, we love this hotel! The movie, Same Time Next Year, comes to mind as we have checked in with Eva on each and every visit! We have all aged gracefully over the years! :)

Hotel Playa Sol was recently renovated and is absolutely beautiful! Our third floor room had beautiful white walls and linens with charming green polka dot decorative pillows. There is a small refrigerator in the room and a large, nicely appointed bathroom. We have always had a third floor room with a lovely balcony/patio overlooking the harbor ~ simply the best and worth the extra charge! The lobby, bar, breakfast room and sitting areas have also been renovated and are also beautiful! I noticed that they have a lovely iMac desktop computer for guests to use (with a small charge). There are also several board games and a pool table available for guests to entertain themselves.

Cadaques is filled with many, many fine restaurants ~ perfect for foodies! Hotel Play Sol is the ideal place to stay when you want to overnight in Cadaques!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the harbor.

Excellent small boutique hotel, probably the best place to stay in Cadaques. Lovely fresh bright bedrooms, top floor giving the best views and most privacy, but smallest rooms although adequate, with a lovely private balcony for your aperitifs (small fridge in room to chill the Fino!). No restaurant in the hotel, but all of Cadaques' restaurants are no more than a five minute harbour side stroll away. Breakfast is a bit steep at €14 each, but you can get a coffee and croissant at one of the beachside cafés 100metres away if you prefer. There's a heated outdoor pool and tennis court too in the hotel's lovely gardens. Reception staff very helpful, will telephone to pre-book a visit to Dali's house for you - well worth doing. This is a lovely hotel, not full service although there is a lounge, bar and terrace, and one I would recommend for its views alone but also for it's position, rooms and delightful ambiance.

Room Tip: Must book a sea view room to benefit from the amazing views over Cadaques bay and to have your own b...

We recently travelled through Spain and visited Cadaques. We loved the look of the Hotel Playa Sol, and were fortunate enough to book into one of their beautiful sea front rooms. We had a very enjoyable stay, made even more memorable by the pleasant and welcoming staff. The receptionist heard that we were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary, and while we were enjoying the view from our balcony, there was a knock on the door - they had sent us champagne to celebrate. What a wonderful gesture!

This hotel is in an excellent location in a very attractive town. It offers wonderful views, do go for the sea view rooms. The rooms are tastefully decorated, comfortable beds and spotlessly clean. Our room was at the top on the third floor and although compact, it offered privacy and the best view across the bay towards the town. The sound proofing must be good as we couldn't hear anyone else during our visit.
The reception staff were very helpful, polite and professional. They booked the visit to the Dali villa for us, which is well worth a trip.
The pool wasn't open when we were there as it is being refurbished, but it looks lovely.
We opted for breakfast on one of the mornings (we were there for two nights) as it was expensive at 14 euros a head. Good Coffee and croissants are cheap and nearby in the town. The breakfasts there are plentiful but I think overpriced.
Overall, this the best hotel in Cadaques, with comfortable lounges, a bar and outside seating areas all overlooking the sea. Simply a delight.

Room Tip: Always ask for a sea view room, top floor for privacy, lower floors for bigger rooms.

We were a family of 2 adults and 2 kids, below 12. Our original booking was for a room for 2 people because we thought the beds would be two double beds that could fit 2 per bed. However, when the receptionist saw us, he said we need to stay in a family room and pay more. It would be too tight for four of us to stay in a small bed. Glad he suggested this as the room he gave us was very nice, clean, modern, bright and spacious. It had two rooms with one King size bed and another adjacent room with two single beds. The room came with breakfast but we were leaving very early the next day. The receptionist made sure that we got our basket of breakfast goodies that evening so we had something to fill us in the morning. We had a lovely time in the hotel. Everyone was very polite and the hotel is absolutely lovely. Wish we stayed longer.

It's been nearly a year since we stayed at Hotel Playa Sol and my husband and I still thinking about our time. We loved the location - we drove from Barcelona and parked our car in the Hotel Playa Sol garage for the duration of our time and walked everywhere we needed to go, the views from our room were amazing (ask for sea view if available - may need to book in advance), the breakfast and recently remodeled comforts were nice as well. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room.
