    it's a very nice hotel and lovely staff.

    • Stayed 1 night

    the room was extremely hot and the air con machine cast a bright light during the night which made it difficult to sleep. also, I did not know the hotel restaurant is closed on Tuesdays which meant I had to leave for food (which it just would have been good to know in advance) the toilet was not properly affixed to the floor. otherwise, be aware that the local "town" offers nothing really by way of supermarket etc, and you are far outside Barcelona (and up a very steep hill). fine if you have a car, but if not, you will spend a lot on taxis.

    it's a very nice hotel and lovely staff. The owner, Brice, let me check in early and check out late which was very kind. If you're looking for peace and quiet it's great

    Bathroom should be more clean. We noticed several hairs in the bath and in the bathroom drawers. Otherwise I would rate it 10

    Nice spacious room, very nice environment, host was friendly, place was quiet and the small swimming pool was nice relaxing and clean

    Maybe could do with a bit of TLC some of the areas are showing their age, but it is still a gem of a place.

    A real gem. Fabulous location and the staff were very attentive. Even though the restaurant is closed on Tuesday evenings they still serve tapas which was excellent

    Diner was great but breakfast not so much. We found three issues with our breakfast and when we notified the attendant/waitress she didn't do anything to fix it or even apologized. Boiled eggs were bad, found a worm on the toast and ants on and around the buffet plates. Taxis are a pain in the bum to find. Have to make a call every time. Not like here in the US where you can just flag one down. It will be expensive to go to Barcelona by taxi.

    The hotel is on a hill and views of the town below were amazing from the restaurant, patio and balcony. Quiet area and staff were friendly. Room was a good size and nicely decorated. Possible to walk to the beach and many places to eat in the town below. If you like hiking you can surely walk up as well. (About 40 min each way or 14€ each way) The beach is also near by and the train station towards Barcelona : Plaza Catalunya. That's about 30-40 min. The train will cost 10€ for a rountrip pass. Just be careful on the way back. You need to be specific and ask for the train to "EL MASNOU"

    It got cold the 2nd day and the room turned chilly. Bryce brought up an electric heater and the room was again warm.

    Bryce (the owner) was very outgoing and strove to make my stay excellent. His g.com said it was full)staff was friendly and efficient. I stayed an extra night (booking.com said it was full). I had dinner there all 3 nights and each was memorable in a very positive manner. The sea bass was top notch.

    breakfast - ate breakfast 1 day of 3 night stay due to dissatisfaction on day 1. problems on first day , no staff present for15 minutes so no coffee until 5 mins before breakfast closed, only bread was sliced bread for toast, hard boiled egg smelt after shell removed ( first one was fine) I hope it was isolated case and reception seemed to take notice when I mentioned it. I would go back to hotel and even try breakfast again as overall was so good
