Design of new steps from reception area to rear of hotel dangerous, also steps into new reception area, especially when wet. 'Ticket' menu and fact that menu was the same for lunch and supper two days running.
The approach from the carpark view of the sea through the reception area is teriffic. The location of the hotel on the sea shore if fantastic. We stayed in September and had wonderful weather and a sea view room. Excellent food and not too expensive. The reception manager Zaida who speaks perfect english was very helpful and kind. We will definitely return to this hotel.
There was nothing we did not like
This hotel is right on an amazing stretch of beaches in a quiet town. The seaside rooms have perfect views of the bay and are a stone's throw from the water. There are walking trails and Roman ruins. The continental breakfast was great, the restaurant had a delicious gourmet menu. and the little bar just off the beach was a great place to grab a few beers and soak up the great atmosphere.
Very friendly atmosphere at the Hotel - and reception staff attentive to individual requests. A "Can Do" mentality describes the hotel staff rather well. It is also just next door to a very significant, ancient Greek + Roman settlement site, first excavated in 1908. Well worth a visit - so it is of interest to those interested in archeological discoveries, still with a great deal of discovering to accomplish.
The restaurant for dinner is quite pricey, though of excellent quality, with good service to match. An evening's "fixed price" menu as well as the "a la carte" could well ensure a full dining room, which the chef deserves. The tourist restaurants in the nearby town of L'Escala leave much to be desired and are just not worth the effort of going out for. One should be able to eat out well for three persons for less than €100 (which is what I would pay for a good meal out for three in Kensington, including wine).
Hostal Empuries is in an idyllic setting in a small private cove right next to the Mediterranean. Everything from the interior design to the food is perfect and once you enter into hotel I could feel myself start to unwind almost immediately. The staff were excellent and added to the whole experience. We will definitely be returning for a longer stay next time.
The hotel manager was extremely helpful. The food at the restaurant for both dinner and breakfast - and the waiting staff - superb. A truly wonderful experience.
The cleaning staff could have done better by checking that the toilet rolls were absent and the soap dispenser was empty. It was a small problem but annoying.
Fabulous place and area but room and particularly bathroom are too basic. For example no fridge for our wine, no glasses to drink from and no table on the balcony to put them on!
We have stayed before 2 years ago, and love the position of the hotel, and the character of the old hostal part, now combined with the new extension and gardens. The waiting staff are excellent, discrete and efficient.
Having booked 2 rooms in April,1 Family and 1 Garden, then cancelled the Garden and specified the Family room was for 3adults, it was disappointing to find we were not in a Family room, but squeezed into a Garden room & could not change due to the large number of conference guests
Relaxed style and excellent location
Its position & style of the building & the food has improved since last year
The bedrooms & bathrooms are a little on the "tired" side
Stunning location adjacent to the ancient Ruins of Empuries and within yards of beautiful beaches, excellent swimming and snorkelling. The hotel hires bikes and a pine shaded track links the hotel to L'Escala in one direction and the village of St Marti D'Empuries in the other where there is also a good choice of restaurants. Good beach front bars but otherwise unspoilt by tourist tat. The hotel is also eco-friendly. Perfect getaway with the bonus of culture on the doorstep!
The Spa room was absolutely gorgeous, the beach setting beautiful, the ruins incredible and the decor and design of the hotel super cool. It really is a lovely place to have a holiday and the beach bar 'Gambo' make the most delicious mojitos!
The staff were a little bit unfriendly (except the lady who checked us out), no details provided reagrding the childrens activities and you have to pay 20 euro to use the adults only spa pool (20 euro whether you stay 1 night or 14). Didn't say this anywhere on their website when I booked, although I assumed the kids wouldn't be able to use the pool as it's in the spa, but my sister who also stayed at the same time without kids, was surprised by the charge.
Location & staff
Room was not as good as expected. Safe had no key, so had to ask for another room.
its location and new spa facilities
The restaurant is very much hit and miss, and overpriced, when eating a la carte. There is a misleading daily menu which does not change daily. It also contained a rabbit dish (bread crumbed and deep fried that is more KFC than Catalan cooking as they pride themselves in.
Unique location. Nice beach. Quiet atmosphere. Nice people. The sea view room was nice! (free) Yoga lessons very good.
Family room first night very small! Extra bed too expensive. Not very comfortable for sleeping. Bicycles for renting not very good. Pillows on the metal chairs on the terrace would be nice!
