Stayed here with our family of 4 in June 2016 in the midst of a 1 month Euro. vacation. We were looking for a "vacation from our vacation" and this was the perfect place for that. Staff was incredibly helpful. Beach next to the hotel was so calm--- children (ages 6 and 8) waded for hours in the peaceful water...

As others have written, this is a top notch place, between the room, grounds, and service. Wonderful breakfast in a lovely "restaurant hall", with very helpful staff people. We had our choice of pillows from the pillow menu, which was a nice touch. And the view from the balcony was marvelous. We sat out there every night and had vino,...

The hotel is quiet and elegant. The rooms are decorated with antiques but is comfortable. The concierge staff was extremely helpful and responsive. The salt water pool is 25m long and seemed empty most of the time so was good for swimming laps. It was cold but that is probably seasonal. The breakfast which was included was excellent.

The De La Gavina sits atop a hill overlooking Girona. It's a beautiful setting. The hotel is classic old world design and feel. The pool overlooks the bay. The air conditioning in our suite left a little to be desired and the furnishings were in need of an upgrade. However, the service and setting was beautiful.
