“Lovely hotel near interesting town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2010

The room was in a ground-floor building, leading off the garden. It was a very good sized room with pleasant décor and all the usual amenities. (We would have appreciated a luggage stand, however.) There is also a little private terrace area at the back of the room. The bathroom was also a good size and well equipped; and the room and bathroom were very clean and well-maintained.
The hotel is set in very pleasant grounds, and these (and also the indoor public areas of the hotel) were smart and well-kept. Both the indoor and outdoor pools were splendid - in a lovely garden seeting, and clean and tidy.
Reception staff were helpful and efficient, and spoke good English.
It was very quiet when we were there, and I got the impression that there were only a few other guests staying in the hotel.
The breakfast was rather disappointing (and my main reason for rating this 4/5 rather than 5/5). There was no full buffet, but a selection of breakfast foods were set out on the table (like a mini-buffet for each individual table), and this inevitably meant that the choice was a bit more limited than we are used to at other hotels where there is a full buffet arrangement. (I don't know if it would be different here if the hotel had been busier.) Tea/coffee was served to the table.
The evening meal was very good, with some interesting and quite elaborate dishes, and good service. However, I thought the restaurant lacked some ambience, but this may be partly due to the fact that there was never more than one other table occupied when we were there.
We found it an easy (and quite pleasant) walk into Pals - about 15/20 minutes - which is a very interesting town to explore.

I stayed in the hotel for the wedding of a friend. I was very disapointed when they did not serve me breakfast in my room, even though I asked if it was possible the day before. I believe that such an expensive hotel should show more flexibility for the clients. From my point of view the price is excesive for the service you get.
Otherwise rooms are beautifuls and the environment too.

We spent 3 nights in this lovely hotel. We absolutely loved it! The junior suite in the new building was spacious (especially the bathroom), clean and very stylish decorated.

Service was multilingual and extremely professional. We asked for a romantic restaurant and we got it (in Sa Tuna, Begur). We got lunch at the pool although kitchen was already closed (4pm). The breakfest was very good!! We were very satisfied and we would love to go back!

You will need a car as the hotel is a little outside of Pals and the coast is about 3-5 miles away (you have to visit Aiguablava and Sant Marti d'Empuries!!)

We spent a weekend with our two year old son. We loved it! We stayed in a junior suite (the smallest room) and it was very good. Nicely decorated, very large, lovely bathroom and great terrace in front of the woods.. Service was great. Child friendly, attentative, multilingual and extremely professional. We asked for a baby sitter so that we could enjoy the restaurant and we were very pleased with her professionality and friendliness. The food at the restaurant was really superb and we got excellent advise on wines (we enjoyed the food much better than in other restaurants nearby such as Castell de l'Emporda). All and all we were very satisfied and we would love to go back!

Mas Salvi is a charming small hotel on the Costa Brava, a few miles/km from the beach. It is constructed around an 18th century farm house in the countryside outside of Pals. The rooms in the new building are large, each with its own terrace and a genrously-sized bathroom. The "suites" in the old farmhouse have smaller bedrooms but have more charm and a balcony or a garden terrace. The food at the restaurant is very good and the staff is very helpful and very friendly, particularly the manager, who went out of her way to ensure that we were happy and having a good stay. We had an excellent experience and enjoyed our time there immensely.

The only downside we found was the occasional disturbance of events that were held there. This may be a consequence of the time of year--we were there just before the high season, when the hotel is full of other guests and most likely will not have room for such things. (If you're looking to have a wedding or other event in the area, this would be a top choice.) The hotel was very understanding, however, and more than compensated us for the disturbance (which in any case turned out to be minor). Another issue: do check when the restaurant is open, because when it is closed no food is available other than breakfast.
