Stayed here only one night on a 3-day driving road trip of Costa Brava coming from Barcelona. Roses is a great beach resort location with lots to do. This property is set right on a cliff overlooking the ocean and the bay. It is a beautiful place. Not too large but had a very resort-like feel. Small private beach next... More

I wanted a short relaxing break for my wife (who recently had a major medical problem) and the Vistabella really provided that. I admit to having read many reviews on the hotel and appreciate some guests were disappointed, but on arrival to be greeted by Nicolas dispelled any doubts - from then on it was "smiles" for 4 days.

While the Mediterranean offers one of the most famous coastlines and an abundance of luxury hotels. This hotel offers something special, they say "small is beautiful", but we know there's much more to it than that. Vistabella is living proof that nothing beats individual, one-to-one service from people who care. I left with a Mediterranean state of mind.

Wonderful vista but unfortunately not up to standard. Room we had should have been renovated but had cheap furniture, torn sun blind uncomfortable beds for the children.

My friend and I stayed for one night at Vistabella. We loved it: the hotel has lots of character, with artistic and unique rooms and a large choice of restaurants. The service was the best I have experienced in the last few years: everyone was incredibly helpful and attentive. The beach was lovely and the food was excellent. Highly recommended...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel Vistabella is situated on top of a small cliff in the bay of Roses, between Canyelles and the Bonifaci beach. The last one receives its name from the calm waters that are protected from the “Tramuntana” (strong North wind).The placement is magical, its distance from the city center creates an unthinkable peacefulness during the summer months. It is the ideal hotel for a quick getaway or to spend your holidays. “In Roses the best sunsets of the whole country can be seen…”, wrote Josep Pla, a famous writer. These sunsets together with the spectacular views of the Gulf of Roses award a unique environment.The gastronomy is very privileged in the hotel, with a wide offer, where the client will find different restaurants to choose from. ... more   less
