We stayed here as part of our running vacation with Running Costa Brava. This was a peaceful retreat in what is a former convent. We stayed in room 17 which had a small balcony with a view over the garden and pool. We did not explore the grounds very much as we had a long day of running. From what we believe, the outdoor pool was probably not heated, but again, we don't know for sure since we didn't explore it. The decor was appropriate, the bathroom had a shower only with an interesting array of jets. It had complimentary "kava" between 7-8pm, which we found out to be champagne, served with a nut mix to snack on while we waited for dinner (earliest is at 8:30pm). Dinner was excellent- service in the entire hotel was excellent and friendly. From the receptionist Raquel (who went the extra mile to help me retrieve some running gear I had left at a nearby spa earlier) to the waiters at dinner- everyone was super friendly always wearing a smile and interested in making our stay as enjoyable as possible. Breakfast was good- a buffet wonderful pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt and coffee (which you can take out onto their patio).
We would definitely stay here again!
