We have just returned from a 12 night stay at this hotel and can honestly say it was sad to leave. From start to end we had the full attention of our hosts and their wonderful staff, it was like staying with friends rather than visiting a hotel. Merche and Pepe and their lovely f

First stayed here many years ago when Pedro father of Merche the current owner was in charge.
He set high standard and these are still well in place. The hotel has enjoyed some tasteful renovation but still retains the charm of the past Our room was well furbished with comfortab

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel, which is relaxed and quiet and has a lot of character. The first thing to mention is the friendliness of Merche, Pepe and their staff, despite only Merche speaking English and us not speaking very much Spanish beyond

WE have visited many times over a number of years and always have a great time. The welcome and attention from Merche, Pepe and their family and staff is always fantastic. The rooms and garden/pool area are always superb. Looking forward to many more visits.
Thanks again.

The location is ok but a bit far from the beach and restaurants. They have private parking though which is great. The hotel looks nice, the rooms are ok but very standard, nothing special. We had ants in the room and even in the bed, the showers by the pool did not work. The staf

Lovely garden and wisteria clad older part of the hotel.
I am looking to come to stay with you for the Cap Riog Festival in July, does anybody know if will I be able to find a taxi willing to take me and collect me and how much would it likely cost?
Yes, there is a taxi service from Palamos to Cap Roig & vice versa. I would think thtrip migh be about 20Eu one way. Which concert are you going to? Kind regards, Hotel Sant Joan

Hi. We are thinking of staying here at the end of August. We will not have a car and are thinking of getting there by bus from Barcelona. I read from the reviews that it is a 20 min walk from town. Is it on main roads and is it a good idea to walk from Palamos at night after dark? Thank you!
Dear Lama B, thanks for your interest in our hotel. The ciry centre is 600metres from here, about a 10-12 minute-walk. The area is absolutely safe at any time. In fact, now in high season, we always walk because it's quicker than getting the car. The bus stop fron Barcelona is 800metrres far from here. Our main entrance has 30 steps but, at the back of te hotel, we have another one where you can come straight with no stairs. Kind regards

Hay disponibilidad en el dia 21 de Octubre y salida el 23 ( dos noches) Gracias
Queremos estar dos noches en este hotel celebrando nuestro 44 aniversario de matrimonio y nos han dicho que es muy acojedor y muy relajante el lugar.
Desde luego el hotel es acogedor, el personal simpático y atento. Pero tendrías que verificar que está abierto los días que queréis ir, ya que cierran toda la temporada de invierno.

"We were offered the choice of a couple of rooms on arrival"
"For a quite evening aperitif maybe a room with balcony on the first floor. But the garden is also a good place to savour this"
"Some rooms have a shared balcony overlooking the garden/pool"
"The new wing has large balcony's overlooking the garden."
"We were in the new wing room 112 .....it is lovely but cannot comment on the rooms in the restored older part of the hotel."
US$115 - US$151 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
