“Really nice hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

We just loved our stay as a couple at Playa Sol : Large renewed rooms, clean, great swimming pool jacuzzi and olive trees garden in the back, parking, quiet, fantastic view of Cadaques at night, within walking distance to center, nice tiny beach just I'm front of the hotel across the street, friendly staff. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Best rooms are the ones with the view on Cadaques

I cannot recommend this quaint hotel right on the Cadaques Bay
Very nice staff and amenities. Parking is very handy at an extra cost but during the holiday season a saving grace
I definitely will be going back!

Room Tip: WE stayed in room 108 with a PERFECT VIEW of the bay from our BIG balcony!

We checked this hotel out online and noticed that the only relatively negative reviews were posted from 2011 and before. Apparently this hotel has been completely remodeled in the last few years and we'd be hard-pressed to find anything wrong with it now. The lobby is quite nice with several comfortable sitting areas with beautiful views of the water and town. We started off in an interior facing room and although we had no real view, the room was so clean and new that we felt at home right away. All the staff (Henrietta, Maria, Eva and the French gentlemen) were incredibly professional, friendly and helpful. They assisted us with reservations to Dali's house, directions and bus/train schedules. We also asked them to notify us if a sea view room came available and sure enough they called us that evening to say they had an unexpected cancellation for the next day. The sea view room was also obviously recently renovated and the view was so incredible we ended up staying 4 nights instead of 2. In our opinion, you could not have a better location in Cadaques. There is a small beach right in front of the hotel and the front desk provides free beach towels. Right out the door are many restaurants and shops and the center of town is a 5 minute walk. Wireless is free and works relatively well - best in the lobby. We didn't have the breakfast but it looked like they had a wide variety. We hope to return to Cadaques in the future and we would definitely stay at Hotel Playa Sol again.

Room Tip: Obviously sea view rooms are the best. However, the balconies in the 3rd floor rooms are set back a...

We loved our stay at Hotel Playa Sol. A family of four, we had a lovely room overlooking the street and beach below, and could spend hours on our balcony watching life and enjoying the view of the harbor and Cadaques. The room was very nice and well-appointed, although it was not perfectly clean. Breakfast was very good, with lots of options including cooked and continental. Service was fine - some staff members were friendly and helpful, others more cool but still helpful. The pool area is great - although there are not enough chairs and definitely not enough shade, meaning it's hard to get chairs at all after the early morning hours, and hard to get shade period. Also, I wish we could have eaten lunch poolside, rather than sitting down at the restaurant (which is next to the pool, but still have to sit and order and wait), and I wish the snack menu was available all hours, not only when the restaurant is closed. Further, the towel system was annoying - you get one card for each person when you check in, then you trade those for towels, then trade your used towels for your cards, and repeat the next day. But all in all, not a big nuisance - we enjoyed our pool time very much. It is very much a hotel geared toward families, and we also enjoyed the ping pong, tennis and basketball next to the pool. It is a short walk into the heart of town - maybe 5-10 minutes - and 10 minutes the other direction to a lovely beach. The beach in front of the hotel is tiny and some days, the water was clear and lovely, others it was murky. We preferred to walk to the cleaner beach, but the beach below was still lovely to look at. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Definitely choose a room facing the street and beach below - this view is what made our stay memorab...

Hotel Playa Sol is a lovely hotel in a great spot in town. I stated here 30 years ago and always wanted to return. Since then the hotel has undergone major renovations and is a great small resort. Fun to just hang out by pool. The staff is super friendly too. My teenage kids enjoyed their garden view room and my husband and I loved our ocean view room with balcony on the 2nd floor. Would love to return to this corner of the world before long.

A location in Cadaques that can not be bettered, the rooms are refreshing, smart, and give an impression of space, walk out onto the small cove beach in front of the hotel and dip into the clear refreshing waters of the bay or take a swim in the secluded garden pool at rear of hotel. We had a sea view room looking on to Cadaques, an awesome balcony for a sun downer. Parking is conveniently available on site. Only point of note is walls are like paper.. But this is a gem, in one of our favourite places in Spain.

Dear guest,

We thank you very much for your writing about playasol and hope you will come back to stay with us soon. About the walls most of them are made with Drywall (also known as plasterboard, wallboard, gypsum board, because they offer with special core additives the best and natural fire resistance and sound transmission may be slightly reduced using regular 5⁄8-inch panels, but we made double walls every where to reduce sound levels. At the first floor and second floor we have decorated the wall with 2 colors washable vinyl wall paper to prevent of hand marks in painted walls. Thanks for your stay and hope seeing you soon again.
