In terms of how fabulous this hotel is, well, it has probably all been said before, but hotels like this are rare jewels. We truly loved it! The pool is beautiful, the building full of character, the furniture and paintings mostly antique ( and absolutely fitting) everywhere is meticulously clean, and the breakfast on the terrace is a wonderful experience, housekeeping faultless and there is a real sense of calm and serenity about the hotel. The staff are helpful, kind and sincere - with a special thank you Esther, Pere and the girls at reception for your help and assistance (however the intern and barman at the pool bar were a bit surly - sorry, but perhaps they need to be made aware of how much a smile means!) The only downside ( if it is one at all) is that the beds were rather hard for me - but that is of course all a matter of personal taste! I hope to return soon - and I rarely say that because there are so many places I would still like to see, but this hotel just has something really special to offer that I would love to experience again - and for a little longer next time too.

I am a long time customer of la Gavina. My parents took me there when I was a boy and now I take my wife and daughter. It is an excellent property to relax for three or four days whichs I do on a regular yearly basis. The service is very friendly and professional in general and highly amicable with regular customers. The swimming pool and the location are simply unbeatable at the Costa Brava. The new management is doing great efforts in renewing the staff, doing maintenance keeping the classic old style building and avoiding decadence which was a risk that the hotel faced some years ago. The new bet for a cuisine renewal is also sometihng to be considered. Sports, Spa and wellbeing facilities have improved however are still far from the new Spas opened all over the Catalan and Spanish territory. The Hotel should make a higher investment there and in maintenance of the installations. Any way it is a great hotel and a place I can consider home.

Gorgeous hotel with impeccable service in a breathtaking setting. Such a treat to visit! Some of the most beautiful views I've ever seen were walking the Cami de Ronda by the hotel, with cove after cove of stunning clear water. All the staff were friendly and helpful, especially at the Candlelight restaurant.

With no doubt, Hostal La Gavina is the best hotel on the Costa Brava. We love the incredible location, the charm of the building, its traditional yet nice decor and its beautiful swimming pool with outstanding views. Don't miss "el camí de ronda", the beautiful path along the sea front through the most exclusive residences and with incredible views.

Love this place. It is in an amazing area with gorgeous coastal paths. Lovely pool. Huge yard for kids to run around. Dog friendly. ANd nice old charm. It is not a typical chain 5 star. Great for families or couples.

Hostal de la Gavina was such a delight! The staff was beyond helpful and made our trip so memorable! The Candlelight dining experience at the hotel was a highlight of our stay. Impeccable service and incredible food! The amazing hospitality displayed by Paco was in itself worth the meal. You won't be disappointed by the lovely town and surround areas...a must see!

The hotel is a seaside 1930's building that is impeccably maintained. Although respecting the old, the hotel has embraced the modern. The furnishing and the vibe are all 21st century in a sophisticated packaged. The surrounding area is gorgeous. Our room, perfect in every way, had a patio overlooking the Mediterranean. We went to bed listening to the waves. We woke to see the sea. Heaven. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. This is a very special place located on the Costa Brava. Don't miss it, or driving up and down the coast to experience the 10th century towns, when you're in Spain.

All facilities were up and running with plenty of staff. Food very good and varied.Fantastic position overlooking a small village and the bay. Good beach close by and pleasant walks. Staff very attentive but not all had a good command of English. Candlelight restaurant very good and sorted out a problem immediately. Very spacious and clean.

This is one of the finest hotels in Europe. Family owned Grand Lux with wonderful service, rooms and food and the the finest swimming pool and Spa. Highly recommended. We have stayed here many times over the last 15 years.

This hotel is located in a beautiful area of the Costa Brava with dramatic views of the open ocean and harbor with a nice beach just meters away in the town. The hotel grounds include an outdoor salt water pool, paddle tennis and tennis courts, outdoor restaurant and bar, and elegant, well manicured grounds. The service is stellar, food excellent, bar options superb, and rooms comfortable with great views. The interior has lovely marble floors, elegant rooms, and a range of different places to dine or have wine. There are also several different meeting halls of various sizes and free internet throughout the premises.
