“A gem on the Costa Brava”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

We had a wonderful week at the Blau Mar. The hotel is in a great location and the staff are extremely friendly. Fantastic walks to the neighbouring bays and a fine selection of reasonably priced restaurants at Llafranc. Em and D

This hotel is sooo lovely, its not often I want to go back to somewhere but this one has me hooked! The hotel so nicely furnished, the staff are lovely, the finishes touches by the hotel manager are the icing on the cake here. I have a six year old little girl and when we arrived I thought she would find it a bit quite but she loved pottering around the grounds and around the pool. The views were lovely from the hotel grounds. Lla Franc is also a lovely fishing village with some lovely restaurants and a great beach to walk down to.

Room Tip: All rooms have sea & pool views.

After being bullied into booking two nights here by my girlfriend (it's not cheap) within 10 minutes of arriving it was clear that "she told me so" and within a day we were regretting not having booked for longer. The hotel is incredibly relaxing with friendly and helpful staff that will help you out with any inquiries you might have. The swimming pool is the real stand-out feature with the beautiful view of the sea.

It's a very short walk to the town but it is on a hill so coming back is a bit of a trek...this is probably the only negative. Highly recommended.

Recent trip to the Costa Brava found us at Hotel Blau Mar. Unknown to our Spanish friends from nearby Tamariu the hotel turned out to be a real find. A 15 min walk from the fishing village of Llafranc, the Blau Mar offers beautiful views, well appointed and comfortable rooms, an infinity pool and comfortable lobby/lounge area. The hotel is superbly run by Mme Christine, Ingmar and the fabulous Caro. Nothing is too hard or too much trouble. Our fifth visit to Llafranc and our first to Blau Mar. This is where we will stay from now on.

Room Tip: Due to the design of the hotel there are no 'bad' rooms

7 day holiday with my wife & 2 daughters (12 & 8). Llafranc is a nice Catalan fisher town, very nice atmosphere, good seaside terrassas, good food. The beach is small and overcrowded. Blau Mar offers you breath-taking views over the village and the sea. Nice small pool, swim with a view over the sea. At night, candle light and the moon shining over the sea. Excellent location for a relaxing holiday. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
