Too far from Cadaques!
Posted Sep 14, 2014 on Hotels
The area of port lligat is very peaceful but it is too far from Cadaques and the main bus station for those who arrive without a car. This must be made clear on the website. It was almost 3pm and very hot but I had to walk to the hotel, as there were no taxis at the bus station - a journey which included extremely steep hills up and down winding bends on roads without pavements. It was the worst journey to a hotel I have ever experienced. On arrival I was exhausted, hot and sweating but no one was in reception. I walked around for a bit, found the cafe and found the receptionist. I explained my difficult journey and how hot and tired I was but she did not offer me a drink or even any concern. Then I had to manage my heavy bag up and down more stairs once inside the hotel. On the return I used a transfer service, similar to a golf cart, to the bus station. I was told this is the only transport available. My advice....if you want to visit cadaques, as I did, don't stay in port lligat as it is just too far and too difficult to walk each day. There is nothing to do around port lligat apart from visit Dali's house which is very interesting. This hotel is only suitable for people who want to walk up and down steep hills several times a day or those with a car. I hope people find this information useful. If I had had it, I would not have booked this hotel.
