The Hotel Rocamar overlooks Cadaqués from the south. The prices are high-mid to top end, depending on the season.
This hotel has a fantastic location and amazing views...but unfortunately this is one of those hotels that has gone to seed in recent years. The last time we stayed here, we splashed out on a "semi-suite" and although the views across the bay were spectacular, everything else about the hotel was disappointing. The rooms were poorly maintained, the breakfast was straight out of the cost-cutters manual and the general state of the hotel was poor.
A classic case of a hotel with poorly motivated staff that doesn´t have to try too hard and which still makes money, thanks to the high demand for rooms in Cadaqués. The one bright point of the stay was lunch- although the dining room was a little dated, the service was friendly and the food excellent.
We would still recommend a stay here in low season just for the views- but just go out for your breakfast and meals! But if you stay here during the high season, you may end up feeling a little ripped off.
In our view, if you charge this much for a hotel room, you need to be doing the basics well. Which is a real shame, as the location of this hotel is spectacular- let´s hope the hotel changes management or the current owners start taking a bit more pride in their hotel, because managed properly- this could be one of the top hotels in Europe.
If you do stay here, try and get a room with a sea view- you'll enjoy hanging out on the balcony with a glass of Cava from the Catalunya wine region of Penedes, and some olives just taking in the view.
All rooms have air conditioning, en suite bathrooms and TV (not that you will be watching much of it)
There's an outdoor pool area with a sunbathing area set below the hotel, just above a small beach as well as an indoor pool with hydro massage and a sauna, a tennis court, mini golf course, table tennis and plenty of parking.
Pets are welcome at the Hotel Rocamar, as long as you don't take them to dinner!
