Quiet resort hotel next to a lovely beach cove.

5 out of 5
by from San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA
Posted Jul 15, 2016
Pros: Attentive staff, ample room size, location.
Location: Boating, water skiing, kayaking, swimming, hiking.
Had a wonderful time! I was able to rest and relax. In this quiet beach town. Our hotel overlooks a lovely beach cove where the water has gentle waves that allows young children to swim easily. Nice restaurants are nearby at different price ranges. Food is good, but can be expensive along the waterfront. Enjoyed the immaculate pool and the views. Staff spoke English and were very attentive and helpful. Our room was cleaned twice a day and the staff was very prompt in addressing our needs. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone searching for a quiet, beautiful place to get away to.

Nice hotel with excellent facilities

5 out of 5
by from England
Posted May 18, 2015
Pros: Location, helpful and friendly staff, cleanness, great facilities
Cons: It will be great to have more information about the history of the hotel and places around
Location: We spend most of our time walking along the coast line. One would need a car for visiting places there, so we haven't manage to do that...
The hotel is at the most beautiful location and offers everything one needs for relaxation. I travelled on my own and all hotel staff was very welcoming and helpful in accommodating everything I need. Although I didn't stay in the room with a sea view, my window was overlooking a beautiful park and I was able to hear the sea at night. This was very relaxing. The room was serviced twice every day and I had beautiful fresh linen every night. Food was excellent with a choice of restaurants and a bar at the hotel, so I ended up having almost all my meals in the hotel. The Spa at the hotel offers a lot of different treatments and massage which I tried, and again this was great. I am planning to stay at the Hostal de la Gavina again soon!

A hotel in a class of its own

5 out of 5
by from Åros, Norway
Posted Aug 30, 2015
Pros: Hostal de la Gavina gives the impression of being a secluded place with a very high standard in every respect.
Cons: Nothing, as far as I can see.
Location: Playa de Santa Pol is just a few steps away with at least one very good restaurant. One of Spains best beaches, Sa Conca, is also quite near.
Staying at Hostal de la Gavina is an incomparable experience. The hotel is old, but fashionable and very well maintained. In the hotel building there is classic art in abundance. The big garden is spacious and very well kept. The outdoor pool is big and from the pool area there is a nice western view and to the attractive beach Santa Pol.

Pros: L'ambiance de noblesse feutrée

昔素晴らしかったでしょうのホテル

Posted Sep 18, 2014
Pros: 綺麗で気持ちも良い庭
Cons: メインテナンス
Location: 半島の散歩はとても良かった
ホテルの案内表示がなくとても分かり難い場所にありました。ロビーも広く、庭も広く、全体的に豪華な造りですが、全てが古く、手入れが行き届かず、時代遅れの印象を受けました。特に悪いというわけではありませんし、あの近辺では最高のホテルのようですが、世界のリーディングホテルに入っていますが、とてもそうは思えないホテルでした。宿泊客は主にアメリカ人とロシア人で、朝食もごくごく普通でした。
