“Nice luxury”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

A lovely classy and luxurious hotel. We had a 1st floor suite with a terrace. The room was absolutely fantastic with lovely design features. We thought that the hotel was nearer the beach than it turned out to be, but this was made up for the fact that the pool is magnificent. The restaurant is independent from the hotel and is fantastic. The food and service at the restaurant was out of this world. The waiter at the restaurant was the best that we experienced in our entire trip.

We borrowed bikes to cycle down to the beach. The reception hadn't much of a clue as to where to go on bikes when it fact it was totally simple - there is a great cycle path that runs just behind the pool area.

All in all though this is an indulgent luxury and to stay a here a couple of nights was perfect.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong here, all the rooms look fantastic. We were pleased with our Gran Suite with...

We were not staying at this hotel but in a villa nearby and spotted it on the way to the beach at Castell. Went on a Monday evening. Not many diners. This is a classy restaurant, probably one of the best in the area. We all had fish dishes and without exception they were all first class. The service and wine list are superior to most other restaurants locally, and the final bill not much higher than one would pay elsewhere.

We spent two nights in a wonderful first floor room overlooking the gardens.From the moment we handed over our bikes(we were on a 7 day cycling trip around the region)we felt we were guests in a wonderful country house. We retreated to the pool to wash off the dust and loved the walk through the gardens.

Some hotels do luxury country in a formulaic way..this was very authentic and understated.

We had dionner both nights in the restaurant and both were outstanding.You are only a short walk from the beach and the hotel is ideally placed for walking or cycling in the region

We have booked to go back.

Room Tip: I would opt for a room upstairs..you get a great sense of looking out over the gardens.

We had a fantastic lunch in the restaurant enjoying some of the best local food we have eaten in Catalonia. My wife's Lemon Meringue Pie was probably the tastiest desert we have had in all of our years in Spain.
I will return soon to make sure that I order the correct desert next time!

What a beautiful property! So chic and classy. Surely, No touristy place. The service was wonderful, specially at breakfast time. The front desk was extremely helpful with other reservations and with all our questions. We had 2 very large rooms that cod not be any beautiful and comfortable. Ours had a huge living area with a extra large comfy white linen couch and beautifully decorated. Our sons stayed next door at a 2 storied bedroom as wonderful as ours.
Great for couples and for families that like the extra elegance.
Very nice pool area and grounds.

This is another great place for a romantic getaway. The hotel feels luxurious but it is affordable. Great value for money.
Location - in a converted farm house, 2 minute drive from the beach - Platja Castell
Rooms - each room is unique, very tastefully decorated, with interesting carpets and accent pieces
Internet - Free wifi
Breakfast - good breakfast buffet with local cheese, yogurt and pastries, try the "taps" a local muffin which is delicious
Pool - the hotel has an outdoor pool, set in the fields, very relaxing
Restaurant - the restauarant is ok, good value for money

Room Tip: The garden suite is good for children because it opens to the garden and they can run around.

Reviewed 10 September 2012

We had two nights at La Malcontenta in August and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The hotel was full however it always felt quiet and peaceful. The beach is about a 15 minute, easy walk away and the water is nice and clear and the beach not too crowded - compared to other beaches in the Costa Brava (however we were there very early in the morning).

The food in the hotel was delicious. Breakfast was So generous and was taken on lovely little terrace. The pool food and service was excellent as well. We ate in the hotel's restaurant both nights and enjoyed ourselves but some meals were excellent and some were just o.k.

The pool is huge and a great spot to relax in the afternoon.

We stayed in a few hotels in the area and there were very few others with the service and facilities that La Malcontenta provides.

We would definitely stay here again.
