“A relaxing break”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

This area is so pretty and the hotel only yards from the beach, a car is recommended to explore the surrounding countryside although there are plenty of nice walks locally if you don't mind a climb. There is a bus service but they are not very frequent and the stop is at the top of a hill so not for the less mobile. The hotel was small, very clean and the staff were so helpful and friendly. The restaurant was such good value for money with wine and water included on the evening set menu for 21 euros and the choice was varied. Breakfast was extra for us and not cheap but it was worth it. We booked independently as we had read previous reviews and we had a lovely room on the first floor with a balcony overlooking the sea with TV, fridge and kettle. If you are looking for just a snack at lunchtime this could be difficult as there was only one place we could find for a light lunch, lots of local restaurants though and the food was excellent. This comes highly recommended for a quiet, relaxing break, we only heard music being played once the whole week - what bliss.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with a balcony at the front

This is an excellent hotel all-round.
We stayed on floor four, in a spacious room with great views. Everything was spotless, the staff always helpful. The breakfast costs, but consists of a wide range of very good quality. The hotel has a nice ground floor dining room plus a pizza/pasta restaurant, both looking out over the sea.
Llafranc beach is blue flag, and there are also wonderful beaches in Calella, a twenty minute stroll away.

We travelled 15th September for one week.

Hotel:
• lovely three star, situated across a small road from the beach. no pool though
• friendly staff
• rooms very clean, fresh towels every day
• flat screen TV showing Sky News, BBC 1 and ITV 1
• fridge in room and complimentary water
• hairdryer provided
• buffet breakfasts excellent, everything on offer you could wish for and as much as you like
• evening meal deal, three courses with wine and water 21 Euros but quality is not as good as it could be – a new menu is put under your door each morning

Thomson:
• met at airport and given a phone number, never see or hear from Thomson again
• pointed towards a taxi and left
• no rep in the resort
• info book in hotel has very little info in it
• Thomson forgot to order our taxi back to the airport!
• they have the worst rooms in the hotel, overlooking the fire escape you need to upgrade to a balcony with a sea view, 34 Euros per night – we phoned the hotel in advance and sorted this out with them
• as you no doubt paying a premium for booking via Thomson, it is better to book independently - Girona airport 45 minutes away, Barcelona 2 hours away.

Places to eat out:
• Chez Thomas is excellent, closed Tuesdays. Eat inside or outside in the garden. Need to book. Near to the pharmacy
• Leon is excellent. Down the street from the pharmacy, very small eating out area on the road, bigger inside. Need to book
• Hotel Llevant on the sea front, good and a bit more pricey, again need to book

The resort:
• Lovely and quiet but it did start closing down around us, shops, restaurants, cafes all closed whilst we were there
• Weekends are busier, Saturdays especially
• Nice walk around a pedestrianized walkway to the next village, Callella, about 15 minutes
• More restaurants and cafes in Callella probably because much more self- catering accommodation there than Llafranc
• Beach beds and umbrellas available in Llafranc generally but as we were late in the season, only if it was a very hot day!
• No beach beds or umbrellas in Callella, take your own, no shade either!

We will definitely go back to the area again but hire a car this time and book independently, to visit other villages, I’m told Pals is a lovely medieval village not too far away.

Room Tip: Balcony sea front rooms the best.

We first stayed at the Terramar 6 years ago and returned the following year. For various reasons we haven't been able to return for five years - our loss because all is as we remembered it, comfortable, spotlessly clean, everything thought of to make visitors comfortable. We booked independently each time and have had excellent rooms with balcony at the front of the hotel. It does appear that the rooms that Thomson offer are not the best, but one couple we met ths year had booked with them and then upgraded their room (at a cost) by contacting the hotel direct. The restaurant is OK but competes with better places in Llafranc. All staff were as friendly and helpful as ever. We will return!

Room Tip: First floor beach facing rooms with balcony are great!

Just returned from first trip to Llafranc which was bliss. The hotel is very nice but the Thomson rooms are not the best, our room was good size and very clean but we had a concrete wall outside our Juliet balcony about 10ft away, some other rooms we saw were extremely small. They provide beach towels free of charge just ask at reception, check the store cupboard on sun terrace as guests leave parasols, chairs, lilos etc for beach but we didn't find this until last day. Food in restaurant at hotel very good value and nice too.

We stay here at least 4 times a year - the staff are so friendly and polite and the hotel is spotless. The breakfast is brilliant and the roof terrace in the afternoon just completes the day!! The hotel is just brilliant yet understated

We stayed in Hotel Terramar for three nights. Llafranc is our all-time favourite beach holiday destination and this was our 9th annual visit. Usually we rent an apartment, but that was not feasible for a 3-night stay.

So we opted for the next best option: a hotel room on the beachfront with a balcony. The other well-known hotels in the front row have a limited number of seafacing rooms. We went to Hotel Terramar and were not disapppointed. The hotel is fairly basic, but everything works as it should. The rooms and bathrooms are immaculately clean. Our bathroom was big enough. The room is small, but then you have the balcony...

The staff was very friendly. We asked for a beach umbrella, and although they do not have umbrellas for guest use, some guests buy umbrellas and then leave them behind. So we could make use of one for the 3 days. The reception desk also made a reservation for us at a nearby restaurant.

We opted to have breakfast at the Croissanterie on the little square (the quality is unbeatable), but the hotel breakfast also looked good.

Great value for money and an unbeatable holiday.
