“Great spot - but it depends on what is important to you”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2012

The hotel is perfectly situated!!!! Outside of Cadaqués in Port Lligat. Beautiful view overlooking the bay.
2 minutes walk down to the entrance of the Dali House (which allowed us to go back, after first disappointment of not having a reservation, to check if there were some cancellations that would still allow us to visit without having done a reservation before).
10-20 minutes walk from Cadaqués (kind of steep walk way, so not a good choice if you are not comfortable with walking).
Lovely terrace with a small swimming pool, nothing fancy but great for cooling down, we used it after check out as we still stayed the day. We used the shower at the swimming pool, had a swim and were nicely refreshed for our trip back.
Ask for a room with sea view. We paid in high season EUR 138.-- per night for bed room for three persons. The room was basic, but all very clean which is what counted for us, we were sightseeing anyhow and did not spend much time in the room. But we enjoyed the small balcony.
Beds are pretty noisy, they might need to get oiled. Getting into and out of bed is probably heard by your room neighbour so anything noisier than this you will definitely share with every one ;-) The third added bed was very basic, the feet quite some lower than the upper part of the bed, but if not for too many nights, it is not a big problem.
Breakfast buffet is at an extra EUR 10.-- per person. It is basic, not an enormous choice. It is fine if you want to start the day with something in your belly: boiled eggs, bacon, ham, cheese, fruit (orange, kiwi, apple), some cereals (choco crisps, corn flakes), coffee, tea, milk, bread, jam, croissants and chocolate bread. All this in a room that overlooks the bay, if you want you have some tables on the terrace, romantic, but hot in the sun.
We were too late to eat at the hotel at night. There is a small "chiringuito" right down at the small beach, "Es Ranco den Dani" where we had some nice food. Had some squid and "calamar", great! There is a second chiringuito next to the parking, which we did not try.
Walk to the next bay after the little beach if you want to do some snorkeling and see some nice fishes.
We would definitely go back to this hotel again for a short trip, if you have plans and the hotel is not your main preoccupation during your stay.

We travelled to this awesome location to stay near Dali Casa for a week for my birthday. Tres bien all thumbs up for location and Port Lligat itself. Dali Casa was like a miracle seen from our window just few steps down the path.
Hotel is cosy with nice rooms, great terrace and breathtaking views from it.

Buuuuut the hotel staff made me laugh everyday I faced them - never met that snobby persons in my life. First, thanks I speak Spanish cos they don't understand English :) Second, they don't smile - a girl at the breakfast was just "awesome" with that dead face (maybe cos I didn't ordered the really overpriced breakfasts for 10euros a person). Third - few smiles from reception and fresh towels appeared only after a full payment but not on the leaving date.
Anyway, these tortured staff didn't spill a yota of my happiness to stay near Dali Casa.

Room Tip: Mountain view is better than a terrace cos in shadow.

This is one of the 2 only hotels in Port Lligat, a perfect spot if you're looking for a quieter place than Cadaques and still stay at a walkable distance from it. Port Lligat is a lovely fisherman village, great for relaxing and add culture (Dali's house) and lanscape (Creus Cape), and I guess that's what the hotel lives from.
It has a lot of 70's charm -I think all renovations that may have been done (if any) have kept that style :). We were given the very last room they had available -which actually didn't look like a room, but a reconverted junk room behind a corner -even the door was smaller than normal ones :). However, they didn't charged us less than the "standard price" -which is quite high cinsodering what they offer.
Breakfast was also quite poor in quantity and, specialy, quality.
In the night it may also be a bit noisy, as the rooms in our wing faced a pedestrian aerea wich seems to be quite busy in the night.

I would only recomend it because of the location -but, if you have the chance, book the other hotel in Port Lligat. Looked much better :)

The hotel is located on an amazing little bay with fab views. Apart from lousy service and noice from other customers/owner from the hotel, we did enjoy our stay.

Horrible hotel with the lousiest service I have ever seen!!! Service staff is not there to provide service but do you a favor-- specially in the restaurant. If this was not enough, everything is overpriced. I would not recommend this experience not even to an enemy

I strongly recommend this hotel for one reason. It´s location. Just over a quiet little bay. (With not so clean little beach.) Outside the town. But only 10 minutes walk to the center. We had a big and nice room, with a balcony facing the bay. Don´t consider other types of rooms. (for example those facing the backside.) Free and safe parking.
As one wrote, it´s better than 2 stars. But the price is also higher than 2 stars. Therefore (?) the hotel was almost empty, in beginning of june. (It was an honest price. Not 7% extra tax, as in some other hotels. And some other hotels in Cadaques are still more overpriced.)
In short: If you don´t care so much about getting value for your money, Port Lligat is an ok choice.
PS. Buy your breakfast at the little supermarket (or big minimarket?) 200 meters away, and have in the morning sun at the balcony.

For a two-star hotel, this one comes with a punch. Nested in the small Port Lligat cove (made famous by Dali's personal house), the scenery is beautiful. Your windows open up on the Mediterranean and the small beach nested in between the rocky coast.

The hotel is a couple yards from Dali's house. It is a typically Spanish building with its white concrete-stucco walls intertwined with typical Spanish decorative ceramic tiles and red titles on the ground. It boasts a nice outdoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi (though access to the Jacuzzi is extra). Each room is decorated with artifacts related to Dali's life and art. Our room had a nice small balcony with a table and chairs. It is clean and well maintained. The staff was helpful and spoke at least Spanish, Castilian, French and English. Not luxurious but above most two and even three-star hotels.
