“Just the ticket,”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

I have just spent one night at this hotel and I loved it. My room 505 was slightly disappointing but my friends room was much nicer 405. We booked last minute as we were staying in another hotel in Platja D'Aro before this. However, as it was late October we got a fabulous deal with breakfast included. The breakfast was very good, views great. The best thing is the bar, restaurant and the views. The restaurant is set out gorgeously, service impeccable and the food was very good. Totally unlike our previous hotel which was a 4 star. The lunch we had at the bar the next day was just fab and much better than food I have previously had at the cafes on the front in Tamariu. The staff at this hotel are extremely polite and you felt they went the extra mile. I found it extremely relaxing and would not hesitate to return again. I will pay extra next time and book a sea view room. Walls are slightly thin so I had quite a noisy Russian couple next to me who appeared only to be able to shout and not talk normally!

We were excited about our night at the Hostalillo to listen to the Habaneres on the first Saturday in September. The concert was cancelled because of weather,no fault of the hotel. When we checked in we were got a great reception,lovely room with a view of the beach. There was no lunch available at the hotel but no problem to find great food in Tamaríu.
My disappointment was the receptionist had told us when we checked in that when we returned from lunch we could decide whether or not we wished to dine at the hotel that evening or not. We came back at 4p.m. and said yes please and were told no availability. o.k. However when we went to dinner in town the dining room was more or less empty and when we returned there were at least 6 empty tables..........I would have thought they could have taken 2 more covers. It is not a cheap hotel and we would have expected a little more.

We loved this place.
Probably the best place to stay in Tamariu as it on the beach but on the quiet side of the pier so you are not disturbed. Lovely views. All staff really friendly and very accommodating of our baby.
(I would like to thank the waiters for putting up with the mess our little one made each morning at the breakfast table). Restaurant was great for dinner as well and good value. Quiet bar to relax. Breakfast was always a treat overlooking the beach. I think the selection was good. The restaurant manager clearly does a fine job keeping all in check here.
The only downsides were just a lack of heating when it gets cold on occasions, serious lack of parking, and barely one working iron with no board for the whole hotel!
Just minor niggles, so have 5 stars.

No hesitation to recommend! I hope to come back some day.

We love this hotel situated in Tamariu on the Costa Brava coast. Spending four days here on our travels in Catalunya. Tamariu is one of our favourite tiny resorts, with good little water side restaurants, great swimming and diving and feels very intimate.

Room Tip: The top floor sea facing (where I am writing this) is the best!

Tamariu is a an absolutely gorgeous place and so is hostalillo. The hotel is very boutique like, with great decor taste and good relaxing vibes. I feel like the price was very high for what is offered even though it is in a lovely place. Breakfast is ok, nothing too fancy about it but it will fill your belly till lunch time. the rooms are basic and could be paid a bit more attention (the wall next to the bathroom had a large black shadow). Regardless of all of this, I am very likely to return to tamariu and to hostalillo!

The hotel rooms are distributed over the hill. You should choose the floors above, it has an incredible view.
The view of the beach is very beautiful, because Tamariu is a small beach and this restaurant has a prime location. We were unlucky with the cleanliness of our room, it did not give proper attention and left to be desired in cleanliness. The breakfast is very good, despite the headwaiter be kind of boring. To park the car in Tamariu isn't an easy task.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the front of the sea.

We are just back from a couple of great nights at the Hotel Hostalillo. Ideal location overlooking a very picturesque bay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was well appointed and had a small balcony which was great for taking in the view with a cold cerveza in hand. The breakfast buffet was very good, and the dining terrace and bar have a great outlook. We dined at the restaurant one evening and were very pleased with both the service and the food - hard to understand why there were so few restaurant patrons at such a busy time of year.
Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Best rooms are those with a beach view terrace, preferably at the front or close to it.
