My wife & I had a week here. It's a smallish place, with only a couple of dozen rooms on 2 floors. The staff are friendly - genuinely so, rather than in that 'it's my job to smile' way that you tend to get in big hotels.
It's in the town of Llafranc, a few minutes' walk up a steep hill from the beach. The hotel just does snack food but there are a few decent restaurants in Llafranc and more in Calella, about half an hour's walk away. The hotel seemed quiet the whole time we were there - it's a peaceful place. The pool's lovely.
Breakfast is good - buffet style though they'll cook you other things too. Occasionally they run out of breakfast items. However this is a place where the staff will go out of their way to make you happy.
The only significant annoyance was the wi-fi, which is available everywhere we tried, and free, but very slow indeed - sometimes to the point of being unusable. That just encouraged us to do other things, so it wasn't all bad.
