“Can't wait to return next summer!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

What a fabulous hotel in an amazing location. Our room was wonderful, with a lovely private garden and a stroll across the lawn to the perfect pool. Plenty of shade for when it was too hot. The breakfast was delicious. The hotel staff couldn't have been any more helpful, friendly and kind. Nothing was too much trouble and they booked restaurants for us which they had recommended and which were excellent. This is a small hotel which meant that, even though it was full, there was loads of space outside and plenty of sun loungers and we were all able to have our space. We'll definitely return for next year's summer holiday and, instead of splitting our week between here and Barcelona, will stay the whole time here. So relaxing and so lovely.

What a wonderful holiday. The Hotel Blau Mar felt like a home away from home. We were travelling as an extended family group, and everyone felt that the Hotel felt more like we were having the priviledge of staying at a friends home. A huge thanks to 3 wonderful members of staff, Alexandra, Marta and Josep. You really made us feel so welcome - fantastic service!!!! Breakfast served on the lovely garden terrace, with the most amazing view of the Ilafranc coast. Nice breakfast - we ordered scrambled eggs every morning or omelettes made to order. Pastries, cereals, fruits, meats and cheese on offer. Hot chocolate for the kids.

Ground floor rooms ideal for families with children with nice garden terrace leading directly to the garden and pool.

I had the misfortune of a sore back during my trip and the hotel arranged a fantastic massage with Joel Vidal (highly recommended). The attention to detail from the Hotel staff was superb in helping me. It is always a test of service when things go wrong on holiday and the Hotel Blau Mar staff really helped in this situation.

The Hotel is about 0.5 miles from the beach front. The walk downhill was no problem. The steep walk back may not be suitable for anyone with mobility issues, but we enjoyed the exercise. Alternatively, car hire will help, as the location allows for the wonderful view and a great night sleep as it is in a quiet area.

Ilafranc offers a small number of shops, lovely restaurants and a beautiful blue flag beach. We really fell in love with the little place.

The best restaurant we ate in during our trip was Chez Tomas, which the Hotel booked for us.

We would also recommend a trip to Calella and Begur.

You will love this gem of a Hotel - we hope to return again!!!

Room Tip: If travelling with children book a ground floor room. Rooms 2,3, 4 and 5 I think offer the best vie...

Great location out of the main part of town. A steep though good walk to beach and restaurants down the hill in 5 or 6 minutes. Everything was lovely in the hotel without a huge amount of fuss though comfortable, friendly, helpful and great staff. Absolutely loved the surrounding villages and could have stayed longer than our 6 nights. Our favourite place of our month in Spain.

We stayed 7 nights at this lovely little hotel. The staff at the hotel was really friendly and service minded. The breakfast buffet was small, but homemade cakes where served every day. The decor of both the rooms, restaurant and hallways was beautiful. I would however not recommend the hotel to families traveling with children who wants to run around and play. This hotel is better suited for couples, friends and business people who want to enjoy the peacefulness and beautiful view.

Room Tip: I would avoid being placed in the top floor room (I think room 20). There is only one room here, and...

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.

Stayed here for 7 nights. It is a little bit of paradise. the Staff are very nice, friendly and so helpful. We were on a B&B basis and the coat was value for money. The breakfast was excellent with a great deal of choice and fried and scrambled eggs were available. The hotel does a snack menu throughout the day which was fine for us at Lunchtime but for evening meals we went into Llanfranch and explored the many restaurants there. A bit of a walk back but well worth it. An exceptional stay and we will be returning.

Room Tip: 1st floor rooms have the best view

We have just spent two weeks at the Blaumar (Room 15) in Llafranc and it was absolutely wonderful. A lovely family run hotel, not too big, Cristina, Alex and Marta provided excellent service, they made us feel so welcome and couldn't do enough to make our stay a happy one. Breakfast was very good, a lot of choice and if you wanted a fried egg, you just had to ask. Our room was very comfortable, with a great view looking out over the village below and the harbour. The bath/shower water lovely and hot. Clean towels, flannels (which was a nice touch) are provided, plus toiletries, and towels for the pool can be obtained from Reception. We ate at the hotel in the evening on many occasions because the restaurants in Llafranc only started service at 8pm, a bit late for us as we like to eat earlier, and there was a reasonable choice, and lovely salads. Yes you have to walk up a fairly steep hill to get to the hotel from the village, but what a fabulous view when you get there, absolutely worth the walk. Look at it as good exercise for your lungs! The pool was lovely, its quite shallow at one end but that wasn't a problem. The gardens around the hotel are beautifully kept. All in all, just a wonderful stay and a brilliant hotel. There are great walks along the Cami de Ronda, the scenery is stunning.

Room Tip: All the rooms on the first floor have a wonderful view over the village below and the sea.
