Super small hotel on beach in picturesque area.Posted Jul 17, 2014
Pros: Very relaxing atmosphere, quiet and very cool. Lovely views from balcony over manicured garden, good size swimming pool/jacuzzi and tennis court.
Location: Overlooking the small beach at the front of the hotel for padding and sunbathing. Easy walk along the beach front to bars and restaurants.
We had a short break of 2 nights. Fantastic views of the bay. Decor was modern and very chic. Plenty of areas to relax around the hotel, by the pool, in the garden or in conservatory at the front. Breakfast, included was very good. Lunch by the pool was very tasty with BBQ food available and reasonable price. Lots of activities in the village, cycle/boat hire.

Mediterranean GemPosted Jun 4, 2014
Pros: That the Mediterranean was right in front of the hotel.The hotel is absolutely beautiful and the decor is so classy. The breakfast was good.
Cons: The weather when we were there.
Location: Cadaques is small so it's an easy walk anywhere and short drive to Dali's house, etc. We were there just one day so took the little tourist train.
Many Costa Brava road trip reports mention Cadaques and Playa Sol. We came based on them and weren't disappointed. Between the charming white houses, the blue sea and the stunning hotel, everything was "as advertized". Wish the weather was better, but it cleared up enough eventually to make the sea bluer. I can only imagine the effect on a sunny day. The was my favorite hotel during our 16 day trip to France and Spain. Everything about it was perfect. The breakfast was great too. Heartily recommend.

This place is hard to beatPosted May 5, 2014
Wow. This was a splurge for us and worth every euro. Cadaques is a beautiful little postcard-perfect Coasta Brava town and Hotel Playa del Sol rises to the occasion. Very helpful and professional staff, stupendous waterfront location, clean and comfortable modern rooms, and beautiful garden/pool and spa area in the back. I can find no faults. I have only great memories and the urge to return.

Well situated hotel in front of the seaPosted Apr 10, 2014
Pros: The location was excellent and the car parking had easy access
Cons: The bench/seat is of no value, it could easily be replaced with a desk and room for an additional chair
Although the view was excellent, the room was rather small and no writing desk.

Best hotelPosted Nov 13, 2013
Pros: As above
Cons: For me this hotel epitomises what I am looking for in a hotel
Location: Excellent restaurants, the crystal clear sea, kayaking, cycling, walking, tennis,etc Feel as at home at the hotel as I would feel in my own home
I was very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. I do not understand why it only has a 3 star rating. For me it was better than 4 star. It has a beautiful and contemporary style and is just majorly aesthetic, which is very important for me, as well as being fresh and very clean. The bed sheets are of the best quality, the bathroom superb. The tranquility, the views, the pool and tennis courts, the unobtrusive service, amazing breakfast buffet, etc, etc The location is perfect being right on the water front of this beautiful little town.

Superb hotel - excellent in every wayPosted Oct 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
This was an unexpectedly great hotel. As Cadaques is a very popular town, we expected the hotel to be a little jaded and tourist-weary. However, it had a massive make-over 2-and-a-half years ago, and they did a superb job. The rooms are beautiful, with great attention to detail, and the public areas are the nicest I've come across in any hotel that has less than 5 stars. Hotel staff say they have to do only a few more tweaks to get it to 4 stars. Staff were excellent, and breakfast was great.

A little piece of heavenPosted Sep 22, 2013
Pros: Everything. The back area at the hotel was filled with many amenities... a nice big (and well-maintained) pool, hot tub, hammock, steam room, etc.
Cons: The only thing we didn't like was having to pay for parking... it should have been free
Location: Cadaques is a small town and this hotel was well situated to all it has to offer.. restaurants, shops, and great beaches are right out your front door
Cadaques was a lovely town and we were very pleased with our choice of hotel and town. We felt like we had landed in a little piece of heaven. The water was beautiful and great for swimming. The hotel was fantastic and we were very loath to leave.

Great location, really nice pool.Posted Aug 25, 2013
Cons: Service could be more friendly.
Location: Cannot beat the location.
Cadaques is beautiful, and this hotel is in an excellent location, right on the water. Some units have water views ...ours did not but they were light and airy. The rooms with views of the pool are quite nice. The pool area itself is top notch, well decorated and plenty of lounge chairs. The rooms were a bit Spartan, but in a good way. Very clean, nice light blue color scheme/

Excellent choicePosted Jul 6, 2013 on Hotels.com
Excellent choice in a beautiful town with lots of lesser properties; very friendly, funny, knowledgeable staff works hard to anticipate and meet every need. Location (across the street from the beach) is perfect. Reserve early for ocean view room with balcony (and parking, too). We had a garden view double (overlooking the beautiful pool) for 4 nights (206 Euros/night [including breakfast] via Hotels.com) in June and were very pleased. Highly recommended.
