“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 1 September 2013 via mobile

Arc de monells is a charming hotel in the medieval town of monells. I would certainly stay here again and actually can't wait to return. The pool is relaxing & clean. It is not on the square but a 2 min walk. It has its own restaurant which is very nice. All the staff were very friendly.

We have a short two day but memorable stay at Arcs de Monells - the menu and dishes served by Sandra the chef are superb - it's worth a stay for the dining as much as the service and ambience - highly recommend it!

MY husband and I were booked here as part of a bike trip. The facilities are excellent, the meals were wonderful - great Catalan food, and the staff were very helpful. The owner altered dishes to provide me with a vegetarian dinner. Lots of fresh local produce was served.

My family and I stay here every year, I also bring business groups as often as I can. The hotel its staff and the location are lovely and well worth a visit. Although there are other restaurants nearby, you should eat in the hotel, Sandra's cooking is fantastic! The hotel is located about 15 minutes away from the coast in the lovely village of Monells, which dates from medieval times. It is the perfect location for cycling and walking, or chilling by the pool. Challenge Josep to a game of chess, he will probably let you win!

Room Tip: In the main hotel which dates from medieval times the rooms are large and rustic. Outside the rooms...

My wife and I stayed there for two days on a bike trip in that area. The hotel is generally wonderful but the host was extraordinary. When my wife had a medical issue he drove us to the the local medical facility and stayed with us to do the translating. I would give it 5 stars for that alone.

We had dinner there one night. It was our best meal in our ten days in Spain. Do not miss Sandra's cooking. We are still thinking of the grilled vegtables with squid and the monk fish.

We were totally overwhelmed by this lovely medieval hotel from the 12th century, I believe. Our host was warm and gracious, giving us much information on the history of this region of Spain. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. There's a small, but very nice pool on the grounds. The pool is unheated, but after a 5 hour bike ride, it was very refreshing. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area.

Arcs de Monells is a small rural hotel lost in the country located in Monells, Baix Emporda, Girona, Spain, close to La Bisbal d'Emporda and to Madremanya. I was there with my wife and two daughters for a weding close by. Too much design in the rooms make them slightly uncomfortable. The tolilet and the bidet are in a separated room (very convenient), but the wash basin and the bathtub are both in the same space as the main room which means that if you want to use any of them during the night you will need to turn on the lights while your partner is sleeping. The receptionists are kind and well informed but they seem to be a little bit overwhelmed when the hotel is full. The T.V. set was not functioning as in the rooms of other members of our party. The breakfast buffet (in our case included in the price of the room) was good both in quantity and in quality. There was plenty of fuits, catalan cold meats, cheesses, different breads and pastries but there were no eggs whatsoever. The service in the dining room was fast and efficient.The garden has a swimming pool and the hotel rents bicycles. There is an unantended parking outside the hotel. At a price of 102.- € per night per room (price negotiated directly with the hotel by the groom of the weding for a package of at least 12 rooms) when the low season had already started it was not precisely cheap. I will only recommend this hotel if you want to be in a very secluded place for a very quiet weekend.

Room Tip: The hotel offers a good value-for-money menu for 20 €
