Hotel El Far de Sant Sebastia
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Llafranc
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 August 2016

Stayed here for two nights. Had a lovely room with its own terrace. Welcome at the reception, which is actually in the restaurant was a little patchy. Not that great. Had dinner in the restaurant the first night which was lovely. Stunning views, good service. The fresh bread and tomatoes which came automatically was very good. Everything was good, the shoulder of lamb was very tasty and the White chocolate desert was excellent. Breakfast is very good too. Croissants, tomato bread, cheese, meats, jams, fresh fruit and yoghurts. All served at your table. Wanted to go into Llafranc for dinner the next night which proved more difficult. The hotel does not run a shuttle bus and the local buses stop running early evening. Taxis are around 18 euros each way which is expensive. Got the bus down and a taxi back which made it a fairly expensive evening. The hotel needs to consider having its own shuttle bus service. The pool and facilities at the sister hotel at Torrent are stunning! Lovely large pool with plenty of sunbeds.

Room Tip: Room with terrace had stunning sea view!

We first ate at El Far over 10 years ago and returned a couple of days ago with our now 8 year old daughter. The location is simply stunning - it is wonderful to sit on either the terrace or the covered eating area and watch the sun go down and the lighthouse's beam flood the sky.

Food was very good - we ate jabugo ham and a cherry gazpacho for starters; the latter was excellent - the jabugo possibly not the absolute best and also (and perhaps not something to be negative about!) a very generous portion that could have been happily shared. Our main course was a shared 'grilled rice' - a very rich paella with Catalan sausage and Palamo prawns. Our daughter had cannelloni from the small, but adequate kids' menu - it was OK - a little bland perhaps.

We shared a chocolate fondue (daughter's choice!) and an excellent crema de caramel for puddings. All in all, a lovely meal. Our only criticism would be the waitress's lack of welcome; a little grumpy, a little rushed and a little dismissive of the details - e.g. topping up wine, water and then big bothering to give daughter a pudding menu. Just little things, though - and still somewhere very memorable.

I don't know where to begin. All I can say is that everyone needs to experience El far. The surroundings are indeed beautiful and a magical venue for our wedding but the manager Judit and her staff are second to none. They were so attentive to our needs and ensured we had weekend to treasure forever. We booked out the venue for family from Friday to Sunday and then stayed on ourselves til the Wednesday. The food, the reception everything was perfect. From the second we booked it as out venue till the Wednesday we had to leave - we felt that Judit listened to our ideas and all of her exceptional staff looked after us and all our guests so well.
I can't express how happy we both are, our families and friends too and we will DEFINITELY be returning in the near future.

Final note, book it and make a memory that will last forever x

We wanted to re-visit Llafranc which we had last been to about 40 years ago when our children were small. The hotel El Far provided a very welcoming base and we "enjoyed" the walk down to the town and back! Our evening meal in the hotel was excellent and we slept well. In the morning we discovered the adjacent site of the pre-Roman settlement and enjoyed a brief visit. Good on site parking.
