Hostal de La Gavina
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in S'Agaro
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 June 2014

This was our fourth stay in Gavina, for a week, and once again it was just fantastic.
This time we brought my 86 year old mother, who was entranced by Gavina as we have been on pour previous stays.
It is the ultimate chill place, and your every whim or need is catered for.
It was wonderful to be recognised and spoiled by staff we have got to know over the years.
This year we had one of the best rooms, with a panoramic view over the Med, and the first thing you hear on waking is the surf. Magic.
The breakfast is legendary - serrano ham with figs is just amazing!
We spent a lot of time at the pool, recharging batteries, and Albert looked after us, making sure we always had whatever we wanted, be it a drink, or the parasol adjusted. Muchas gracias, Albert, y buena suerte.
After having eaten out in the evening we would come in for a nightcap, and Pepe (Jose) was always there for us. A master of style, tact and service, he was always there for us, and we enjoyed chats with him - a wonderful man, and irreplaceable.
We are already semi-organised to come back next year.
Special and thanks also to Abraham, Ingrid, Angie (of course), Pere, Alejandro, Ivan and Tatiana.
A great week's holiday, just gorgeous.

I love this beautiful old hotel. This is where Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardiner stayed when they were filming in Spain.
We held our daughters wedding there with 125 guests and it was wonderful.
The beds have linen sheets, antiques abound the place. We stayed in a beautiful suite overlooking the ocean. Service was impeccable, this lovely hotel is a real treat, 5 stars at the very least. Gorgeous grounds surround the hotel and lovely pool. Breakfast is fantastic too.
I fell in love with this hotel as did my Daughter, she and her husband have gone back several times. Grand old hotel with modern bathrooms. Love it.

Room Tip: Ask to see suites first as they are all very different. Some much larger than others.

Stunning! We had a room with a view over the sea and a little patio where we drank wine and chatted. The room was spacious and attractive. We slept with the windows open to hear the sea, and slept soundly! The view from the pool over the sea is also breathtaking. We ate lunch at the pool side cafe and my lobster salad was outstanding! The staff were very accommodating and make every effort to ensure you feel welcome and well served. The breakfast buffet was enormous and would satisfy the pickiest of eaters. Plus, the coffee was excellent. Two thumbs up!

We loved the Hostal de la Gavina! We were there last fall and absolutely fell in love with it. It was October so it was low season and there were not many people there but we paid for the corner suite with the balcony and were delighted. The furnishings were beautiful, the bathroom was completely updated and the view was tremendous. Jose was amazing... he was everywhere. He was the room service guy, the bar tender, the waiter in the restaurant... along with others. They made us feel like family in this Grand Hotel. It is perfectly located, close enough to walk into S'agaro to enjoy the town as well. We rented a boat one day to see the Costa Brava from the water and that is something everyone should do to really enjoy the beauty of the coast and the geography and rock formations. This hotel was referred to us by other American friends and we loved it.

Room Tip: Try to get the corner suite with the balcony! It was great. My only complaint was the bed was a lit...

This is a gorgeous setting on the Costa Brava in Span for this decidedly five star resort hotel. Everything about it is delightful from the staff, the magnificent breakfast , the fine linen sheets on the comfortable beds to the antiques liberally situated in the halls and public spaces. We had a mini suite that had a lovely large terrace that overlooked the sea and the exclusive neighboring villas. There is a beautiful fully staffed pool, spa, tennis and paddle courts. Bikes are also available. A long well groomed walk takes you above the rocky cliffs and clear sea below. We could not recommend this hotel more highly. It is a perfect spot from which to explore Salvador Dali's museum and home. It lends itself for the pleasure of couples and family gatherings.

Room Tip: The second floor was lovely and I would check with the hotel, but it seems the rooms all have lovely...

Good bedrooms with lovely bathroom...and they have kept the old furniture which adds to the historic value.
This is a great property spoiled by the lack of investment in the public areas....it's like an old age home ...as a hotel.
It's such a shame that the fantastic features have not been modernly enhanced...they have done it in the bedrooms but not in the public areas......it's a bit " physco"....
The restaurants are of a gone bye age.....you would have to be insane to eat their when such " alive" restaurants are available locally.
This hotel needs a WOW modern creative restaurant...no wonder all guests eat out.
The rooms are ok value.
The breakfast at 35 € must be a joke.?.... For 35€ it's has to be in a wonderfully creative environment...no mater how good the bread is.
This could be a great iconic hotel....but at this time it's not quite there.
Stay there and et out.

Room Tip: Stay the night....but eat in the local fantastic restaurants.....a short walk away.
