Afores de Torrent, s/n, Torrent, Catalonia, Spain
"The setting is lovely, but the service is irregular, and at times horrible. They said it was a non-smoking space, and people were smoking at the pool, at the lunch terrace, at the bar, and in the outdoor waiting area that you need to enter at the at the breakfast restaurant. They were even smoking cigars after lunch with other people around. Some days the room was well cleaned, other days it wasn’t. The service at lunch was poor. I expected more from a 5-star luxury report."
"We spent an unforgettable girly weekend here. We enjoyed the magnificent spa facilities. A special mention to the lovely restaurant and amazing food and drinks.The staff were extremely attentive and went the extra mile to make us feel welcome. We can't wait to go back!"
"It's a fantastic hotel, very comfortable and cosy. We loved the stylish forniture and decoration and the healty meals. The landscape and views are wanderful too. We highly recommend Mas de Torrent for couples, family trips and even business events."

Platja De Fornells, s/n, Begur, Catalonia, Spain
"We have been coming to this wonderful place for over 50 years now and have just returned from a lst minute trip which was the final week before the hotel closes for the winter.The sun shone,which of course helped.loads of people were swimming in the sea,but the hotel made it the fabulous holiday that it was and always is.The staff without exception were as friendly as ever.Most of them we have seen grow up here,starting off in the most junior roles and now make up the senior management whom we are proud to call our freinds.The food as always is great.We had breakfast every morning which is a cornucopia of every conceivable pastry you can think of,fresh fruit,meats,etc.The only gripe we have is that the heating equipment for the fried eggs and bacon are too antiquated with the result that they are always cold.Dinner in the evening is simply wonderful.a huge choice both on the table d'hote and the a la carte menus.Surely some of the best food on offer in the 400 or so restaurants in the immediate area(and we have tried most of them!) I read the adverse report of the American ''Georgia family'' of their room cleanliness with utter incredulity.All I can say is in the 50/60 times we have stayed in this hotel,never,EVER have we had this reported experience.We have stayed in virtually every room in the hotel with family and friends and not once in all that time has our room been anything other than scrupulously clean.This last visit, last week our room was once again spotless.We were in the main building on the first floor in a junior suite and the room was cleaned every morning whilst we were having breakfast.Believe me,if the room was ever in the state described by your reporter from the US,I would never ever return,but in all our visits this has never ever been the case. I cannot praise this hotel highly enough.It seems others agree with me as the hotel was absolutely full both for the two weeks in September and again for the last week in October.Not bad in these troubled times for Catalonia.Worth reporting that we actually flew in and out of Toulouse in order to avoid the situation in Barcelona.Worked very well too."
"We arrived early on the first day of our three-day stay, and were told the room wasn't yet ready, and to come back at 2:00. W e arrived back there at around 2:05. They told us the room wasn't yet ready and to wait somewhere and they'd come get us when it was. That was fine, because the outdoor area and the grounds are lovely. It was only 5 minutes later that a nice young man came to get us, and helped us carry our luggage down to room 89. A team of cleaners was exiting our room when we entered. Almost immediately we noticed.... No, wait. I'll start with the good things, first, because there were definitely good things. The mattress was comfortable. The outdoor spaces are very nice. The pool looked crystal clear and inviting, though we never swam in it. Our room's terrace was large and had two recliners and two chairs and a table, and looked out over the loveliest view of trees and the sea. Breakfast each morning was lovely, sitting on the terrace with perfect weather and that spectacular view. The food choices were plentiful--meats, cheeses, eggs, pastries, tomatoes and bread, fruit, cereals, yogurts, champagne and juices, coffee options... The little beach down below is so pretty, the water crystal clear. We were able to swim in it, even thought it was already October. (It's a public beach, so be aware that some women will be topless, if that is a concern to you.) It was nice to go down there in the evenings, too, just to sit and look out over the water. So peaceful. Now, back to the room. Immediately we noticed the long black hairs. Not just one or two , but many--at least 20. They were in every room of the suite. It was as though their mop had picked up a bunch of hair from where someone had sat brushing, maybe, and spread them around the room. The floor of the toilet room had two footprints (I've shown a photo). I called the desk immediately. No apology or anything, but they sent a maid up, not with a vacuum, but a swiffer. When she left I picked up the remaining hairs and cleaned the footprints myself. The room had a bad smell of mold and mildew, especially in the toilet room. Not mild, but strong and bad. The shower ceiling has visible mold (see pic). It got to the point that I felt sick whenever in the room, and tried to stay in it as little as possible. Four pillows were provided. My husband put his square pillow on the floor next to his side of the bed one night, and in the morning the pillow had some nasty watery brownish stains, as though it had wicked up dirty mop water from the cracks between the cheap laminate flooring. Really gross. We spent two weeks in Catalonia, and this was the only hotel that was dirty. Even the 98 euro place we spent one night in was sparkling clean. Yet this was the most expensive place we stayed in, that calls themselves a 4 star. A 4 star hotel shouldn't make you feel ill and make you feel dirty. (A 4 star hotel should also provide water each night of the stay, not just the first night, and robes, "
"We recently stayed here for a 2 night stay and I can honestly say it’s now my favourite hotel on the Costa Brava. The location is beautiful and the hotel has lots of different areas to relax, eat, and enjoy sports (badminton and ping pong). The swimming pool is a good size with a bar serving drinks, and it was difficult to pull the kids away from this. We are a family of 5 and have found it difficult to find accommodation in other hotels that can accommodate us all in one room, but we had a lovely suite here, with plenty of space, a little balcony and l’occitane products in the bathroom. The food I the restaurant for lunch and dinner was delicious, with a good selection, including a great kids menu with healthy options. My kids loved the breakfast buffet and the pastries and fruit were particularly delicious - my only negative comment would be that the cooked breakfast was not hot enough, as it had been reheated - but the staff were quick to try and prepare a fresh plate for us. Overall, a great choice for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting."

Platja D'aiguablava, Begur, Catalonia, Spain
"After nearly four years waiting for this Parador to reopen following a complete refurbishment and remodelling, our expectations were fully met. It was really good to stay here again. The design is very impressive in a contemporary way and above all it feels comfortable. The staff are welcoming and friendly - it is good to see some staff have been retained throughout its closure and renovation programme. There are new leisure facilities which include a new outdoor pool, solarium and a completely new spa area indoors. The reception areas are generous and relaxing. We ate an excellent dinner in the restaurant and the buffet breakfast served in a newly created breakfast room was extremely well organised and extensive. This is one of our favourite Paradors located on a stunning coastline offering extensive walks and nearby coastal villages as well as Begur to discover. We look forward to visiting again."
"We rented the top floor suite which was fabulous. Definitely recommend the splurge. Great views and lots of inside and outside space. Beach is very close - down steps or take the longer path. Food was acceptable. A couple of hours drive from Barcelona - nice for a weekend break."
"A calm and relaxing place in an incredible location in front of the sea! Friendly staff and nice rooms. Something exceptional! Not difficult to find and possible to eat in the near villages just to explore other places in the area. Unforgettable!"

Muntanya de Sant Sebastià, Llafranch, Catalonia, Spain
"I came here for lunch yesterday with a friend who lives in Barcelona. We had spent the morning exploring some of the towns in Costa Brava and arrived here around 2 p for lunch. We had a reservation and we seated immediately at the table of our choice. We split the patatas bravas, paella w shrimp, and a dessert of fresh fruit and sorbet plus wine. Absolutely incredible views and wonderful food! Reasonably priced given the views, food an service. After lunch walked to property and enjoyed the excavated ruins and the views some more before heading back. This place a wonderful jewel and I would highly recommend."
"The property lies high above the beaches of the Costa Brava with a magnificent view, spoilt unfortunately by two large Ariels. The light house adds charm to the area. The hotel has a large Restaurant, which served us excellent dinners (à la carte menue)on the two nights we spent there. Our room had a small balcony looking down towards the beaches with two deck chairs. The room itself was small but more than sufficient for a short stay. The bathroom/toilet was small and badly in need of a renovation."
"Head for the lighthouse and it's on the next level. This was a real treat. Wonderful food, first class service, impressive setting and the value for money was exceptional. This wasn't just a meal it was an experience. We will be back here as soon as we possibly can."

Platja de Fornells, s/n, Begur, Catalonia, Spain
"We stayed two separate nights in the Eetu, on the way to and from France, booking direct for bed and breakfast. We had two different rooms for our stays and both had wonderful sea views and were very well appointed and finished, although here and there throughout the hotel, one can see where certain refurbishment cost savings were made after the present owners acquired it. This is also reflected in the fact that they could employ a few more staff. One arrives at reception behind someone else who is checking in and the lone receptionist then disappears with the people in front to take them to their room while you are left to twiddle your thumbs for five minutes. This happened to us both times. Similarly, at breakfast, which is self-service, the plates pile up on ones table while the owner busies himself otherwise in the restaurant with no other staff in support except the egg chef. The breakfast options are just about all there, although on a fairly modest scale. The new pool is a lovely area. We were very surprised to find a notice in the lift and on reception on Monday morning stating that the hotel restaurant would be closed that day (apart from breakfast) because of staff holidays. I understand this is a common, if not regular, occurrence. What hotel that aspires to be top notch can get away with that? We dined in Begur, a 5 minute drive away, where there is a reasonable selection of restaurants and bars. Overall the Eetu is a very nice place and we are glad we stayed there. I think if the Aigua Blava Parador ever reopens it will provide some stiff competition."
"My wife and i stayed here for 3 nights in at the beginning of the month and we loved this hotel. Everywhere was immaculately clean and the rooms were a good size compared to the other hotels we’d stayed in as we toured around Catalunya. There was covered free parking and the when we checked in the manager/owner Bernard was very helpful in pointing out places to visit and a map of the area. Our room was very comfortable and had a nice big balcony overlooking the garden, and the room was impeccably clean with plenty of storage and nice toiletries. We ate in the restaurant on 2 evenings and the food was of a very good standard as was the breakfast the following day. The pool area was absolutely fantastic, the pool was obviously new and there were lots of cabanas and loungers, and again spotlessly clean. All the staff were friendly and very efficient, and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this hotel and will definitely be returning."
"what a great hotel! The welcome was very cordial. The room clean and nicely decorated. nice spacious bathroom and great bed. Very good breakfast and the pool is beautiful, clean and quiet. nice view of the mountains and the sea. The most important: The owner is so very hospitable and friendly that it felt like a second home. Only compliments for the owner and his team! small point of attention is the dinner, but ok for this price. We will definitely be back !! Kind Regards, Peter & Bart (16-24 september 2019) Room 201"

Passeig de l'Àncora Número 6, Begur, Catalonia, Spain
"We stayed there for two nights recently and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were very well cared for. The ownership changed about a year ago to a very well known, established hospitality family in the area and it's clear that they are working hard to change the reputation and succeeding! Many reviews talk about expensive but disappointing food. The food is not cheap but you get what you pay for, including an incredible setting which people should understand has to cone with a premium. Everything we ordered was exquisitely prepared and I especially recommend the calamari and pulpo! My mother aptly described the first round of tapas as a kaleidoscope of flavors. The rooms were also excellent, clean with robes, bath products and excellent bedding. In the end, I believe that people make more of an impact on an experience than most other things and I can sincerely say that one of the highlight of our stay was the charming and effective maître d' who was very attentive and a very fine sommelier."
"The spectation was very high before going, but they were overtaken. Incredible location, good service and great food. We asked for tapas to compete. Awesome Andalusian squid with cheese! I recommend asking the black rice to the can."
"Ouch!!!!!stopped in this Hostel in SaTuna for a breakfast.....ordered 2coffee’s and 2Croque Monsier.....toasted sandwich of plain white cut bread ,processed cheese and ham.....it was brought to us so we ate it took us all of 2 minuets only to be told that for 3.50euros you only got half a sandwich......so all in all out two toasted sandwiches cost 7 euros per sandwich....so 21 euros for the lot.....what a rip off should have said on the menu it was only half for 3.50euros each........ so be warned and ask before you order....was not impressed ......"

Pi i Rallo, 3, Begur, Catalonia, Spain
"There is a nightclub licensed to operate up to 3-30 next door, u do not hear the music but when people leave they congregate round the exit door. It is on a very narrow street and so their talking is amplified by the surrounding walls and woke me up every morning, so beware of booking a room which is on the street side. The Hotel is nice, very clean and tidy and the rooms are what I saw good sized. The internet connection I have never experienced before, u have to sign on every time u use it, that needs to change. The breakfast is usual hotel standard, fruit ,cold meat , cereals, bread and rolls, on demand u can have boiled egg, fried egg with one rasher of bacon, and one egg scrambled or made into a one egg omelet . The morning Cook has the habit of banging the plates down on the table, and she could do with a refresher course at a Charm School. Someone said in a review that it had a FABULOUS Breakfast, that person should visit Hotel Helios Costa Tropical in Almunecar next to Costa del Sol. The hotel has three car parking spaces near by at a cost of 12 Euros per day, before we left to go to Bergur I emailed the hotel twice to ask them where to go and park my car on my second email the answer came back "front of hotel Aiguabrava", I have kept the email and if u want to see it I will pass it on, look up where that hotel is situated ????? The tv channels in the room are all Spanish, for a four star hotel who are u kidding at least one ???English speaking news program is uselessly the minimum. The Spa is nice and we did enjoy, but on one occasion the steam room was cold and without steam, why ?? Would we stay in this hotel again, yes the prices of booking direct with the hotel are very good value but not on the main road side, the restaurant we would eat at it again, but that is on a another review."
"I took my wife to the Classic Hotel Begur with two of our friends to celebrate her 50th birthday. I can honestly say that this is a lovely little hotel. The room was very clean and tidy, the view from the balcony looked up to the castle. The service was excellent and the staff very helpful and polite, breakfast was traditional as you would expect. The Spa facility is down in the basement small and intimate with everything you need to relax and unwind. As for the location you cant get better, it is bang in the middle of the square. Turn right out of the hotel door and your in it. Begur is a lovely little town with a traditional feel rather than your normal tourist resort. The Tapas bars and restaurant's are all good value we never had a bad meal. All in all I would highly recommend this hotel for a short break, we will definitely be back next year."
"Begur is a Catalan town with beautiful architecture typical of Catalan in the old town. There are many restaurants and bars in the centre and hotel is right in the middle of town. Therefore access is on foot but there is parking a very short walk away. Although the town is lively as soon as you enter the hotel there is an air of tranquility. This is also reflected in the spa area that could be used by guest with no charge unless you wished a specific treatment. The room was very clean with good air conditioning and a well stocked mini bar if you wanted it. The bed was incredibly comfy allowing a good nights rest. Breakfast was extensive and fresh. The staff were very friendly helpful and courteous. We loved this town and indeed the hotel. Would definitely return. "

C Torroella a Palafrugell s n, El Baix Emporda, Catalonia, Spain
"For all seeking a quite, yet very centric location in Costa Brava, this is one of the best choices. If not the best. Great views from each room, huge balconies and very comfy beds. The rooms itself are really big, which makes your stay very pleasant. I must admit, I didn't like the result of the refurbish. The WANNA BE Ibiza style with straw on the wall does not match the golf spirit. Not the best architect with not the best taste. Bathrooms were not renovated, which is a big minus. Because actually the bathrooms were seeking a refurbish, the rooms were still OK. Breakfast was excellent. It is really worth to pay it as a big variety of products with very good quality. The service (AMAIA and HELEN!) are professionals, with GREAT ATTITUDE AND REALLY SUPERB. I know them from other stays and it is always great to see them again. Restaurant manager RICARDO could learn so much from them! For instance not to scream to the customers, since Helen and Amaia almost whisper and have this soft attitude. Ricardo seems to be more like a door keeper from a dodgy club. All the time with crossed arms, watching his staff, like he would wait for an error. I was amazed and had pity for this very nice staff as they have such a RUDE MANAGER. The day he had off was the best day for the breakfast. Overall the hotel management was very disappointing. We were missing the previous person in charge. The golf director and hotel manager (young lady) also dress in a way, that you don't know, if they are guests, or they are in charge in the hotel. They never say hello to the guest or make a chit chat. So you are quite sure they are visitors. Actually they do not care about the guests. You might have the impression you are bothering, even the hotel was empty. The main objective from the management is to create a good mood. And I can assure you, there was no good mood at all in Golf Emporda. Maybe the management is feeling to superior to pay attention to the guests and be friendly to their own staff. Like they would be from a better social class. From my perspective, the mostly sad and surprising aspect of our stay. Or maybe they just do not have the hotel experience, as they might be from other sectors? I am quite certain the hotel manager and Ricardo where never working in a hotel, as they do not know what to do.. . I also prefer the old swimming pool. It was a bit hidden, but was giving the guests full intimacy. The new pool, just in front of the hotel, does not really fit to the building. It looks like it would be in the middle of nowhere and you do not have absolutely any intimacy. The guests from the restaurant have full view on the bathing guests and might be annoyed by the screaming kids. Not enough chairs, so some guests were just laying on the grass around the pool with own towels. It had some camping appeal. Not really matching a 4 STAR hotel. I assume the objective was different, but for me the change of swimming was "
"Not sure where the critical notes on Tripadvisor come from..... we booked 2 nights preceding a week in a sea view vila. Very friendly welcome at the reception, with the famous chocolate chip cookie. We picked the hotel because of the great and large pools, both inside and outside. The weather was excellent, so we only used the big one outside which was great, with many shaded areas both from parasols as well as under trees. The rooms all have nice verandas, and are well equipped. Best moment of the day is the breakfast on the terrace overlooking the golf-course and having the mountains in the back! So good we are contemplating to be back on our next holiday in October!"
"We just spent a week-end night enroute to our final destination. Warm welcome, room and hotel need renovation, which should occur this winter. Dinner and breakfast at the restaurant: good food and good service, especially by Carlos. The only down side: price was very high, hotel being fully booked due to a gilf competition!"
