We loved at our 2 night stay at this little hotel right on the beach. It was late in the season, so we were upgraded to a room overlooking the ocean, which was small, a little tired but clean and delightful. The staff were a great team, hardworking, English - speaking and very friendly. We enjoyed two full lunches at... More

Unbeatable shoreline location on Catalunya's best beach. Room was basic but clean, bathroom very small and tired. Breakfast was good standard and choice for Continental style. Starts at 08:30 which was too late for us.

We were delighted to have found this place. The location is spectacular. Rooms spotless clean and the place is right across from a fantastic sandy beach complete with beach bar and restaurant. Also restaurant inside the hostel for evening dinner and breakfast, both of which were delightful.

This small and slightly kooky beachside hostal is all you could want for a weekend on the beach. Staff were universally friendly room was comfortable without being pretentious. The price is great and all in all a good value for money stay.

This is a small restaurant in La Fosca beach. Location is great, you walk 20m and you are on the sand. Rooms are very old, so they need to keep a low price, which is good because a restauranr with this location usually costs much more. The restaurant is very good, nice fresh food and reasonably priced. And good breakfast.... More

We wanted to have lunch at this place; we had tried in the past, but for any reason, never could. We asked to rearrange 3 tables in the terrace, so that the 6 of us (4 adults and 2 kids) could fit in... It was at medium capacity so it obviously would not have been any problem for them. We... More
