The location within Ampuriabrava is Perfect! Close to beach/port/center The overall finishing of the hotel is not worth 4* for me ... The hotel doesn't have a soul, staff is very cold, ... misses style/personality!
Hotel was very nice, no complaints at all. Location excellent. Staff efficient and agreeable. Would be happy to return.
Rooms were clean and modern and staff were friendly and helpful Very expensive compared to other local hotels. We booked the cheapest double (which still was not cheap) and the room was very small compared to rooms in other hotels locally. Breakfast was an extortionate price. We won't stay there again preferring the Hotel Univers in nearby Roses.
Nice room, helpful staff, atractive decor
We,ve stayed at the Salins on several occasions, some very difficult times, over the illness and death of my mother who lived in Empuriabrava. We received nothing but courtesy and support from the staff, notably Jordi, who is always very welcoming and charming. We have eaten in the restaurant which is excellent. Our only observation is that on this occcasion, we noticed that the decor wasbecoming very worn. the curtain linings in our room were torn, the balcony chairs were wobbly. We much enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend the hotel
Friendly, helpfull staff who always had a smile. The very high quality of the hotel which was well located for all activities. no
good value.great location
Nice pool Very small room
I really liked the level of english spoken by the staff, especially the receptionist and his helpfulness. The food, both lunch and room service was exceptional and by far the best food I've had in Spain for similar value of money. I didn't like that you actually have to book an appointment for the sauna, think you should be able to go there when you want to. The hotel manager didn't seem very friendly. The breakfast was a bit disappointing given how great the ohter meals were.
Hotel terrace, friendly staff and location. Easy excursions throughout Emporda area. Parking was free but difficult to find during holiday season.
the position is excellent the rooms were great and large with a wonderful view the breakfast was very poor and not value for money it also started to late at 8.15 we missed breakfast on our last day as we had to leave at 8.o clock
Fine were: retaurant, lovation, stuff, room, Pool, nearby boattrip, retsuarant location, climatisationt, price, parking place street between hotel and pool
Hotel staffs are very kind and well organize for all services. Hotel restaurant served excellent foods, specially fishes and sea foods and also waiters are very professional. Breakfast doesn't have variety.
Easy to find on the main road and flanked by canals and boats.Nice big rooms with very nice bathroom and fittings. We also had a sunny balcony overlooking the canal.Very close to the beach and in easy driving distance of many nice attractions and old towns.The hotel had a lively but friendly Irish bar and a good seafood restaurant. It was an easy 1 hour driver from Girona Airport. Although the wine was very reasonable the meals seemed overpriced.
A lovely part of Spain that would not be appreciated by all - as many prefer to play Bingo as I don't. I've visited this hotel for about six years now whilst passing through. It is excellent, clean, tidy, a superb Irish bar and as in most of Catalonia, they still have an ashtray at the bar; and probably the best furnished in every respect. The local food is very good and comes at an affordable price. It's heaven for God's sake. Normally I live in the south of France when I'm at home; but this beets it in every respect. Don't tell everyone! It's 586Km from where I live.
good gym facility, views, no spa facility
On arrival the outside of the hotel is basic looking,reception is spotless & very friendly.our room was at the back of the hotel 214 - lovely room, V.comfy & V.clean, (we have stayed in 5* rooms more basic than this one) with amazing veiws overlooking the canal & mountains, was a lovely suprise! We were slightly dubious about the irish bar but it turned out to be a real locals hang out just playing brit music in the evenings,although loud we couldnt hear it from the room at all. it is a beautiful 10 min walk to the beach with places to eat & drink all the way.I Chose the area only as we were skydiving. we couldn't have had a better weekend in such a beautiful,friendly town - we were not hassled once to eat/buy anywhere, very refreshing!! Not really a complaint but would have been nice to have been advised before arrival that the pool is across the road from the hotel. this would not be suitable for a single parent. this didnt turn out to be a prob for us just a bit strange!
The rooms are very nice looking and clean, windows do a good job of filtering the street noise. 10 minutes walk from the beach, decent amount of parking around the hotel. Good value for money, considering that it's a resort hotel. The staff of the hotel seems to be the same as the restaurant - usually nobody at the reception. Restaurant downstairs is very overpriced - have to go a bit further to eat. Far from the beach relatively to most other hotels in the town.
The staff were very helpful, the hotel is very clean and has been fitted to a high quality and is perfectly situated for access to the town centre
excellent food - breakfasts and dinners. located very close to the sea and the centre of roses. nice pool and the interior of the hotel and rooms. the staff did not speak english
Good place, excellent meal, garage. Poor change shampoos snd soaps -two times in five days it is not inaf.
We loved the facilities, food and room. The staff where excellent and we had no problems with languages even though we don't speak spanish, thanks for a lovely stay
The facilities, the location The smell in the rooms (disinfectant?)
Super beliggenhed og parkeringsmuligheder til rimelig priser. Fantastisk med den lækre tagterrasse.
Hotellets beliggenhéd er perfekt. Et hit med poolen og terressen på taget.Byen er turistet men på den gode måde - du kan få det hele men også trække dig.
God beliggenhed, Venligt og velklædt personale, høflig og hjælpsom betjening. Lækkert morgenbord.
Beliggenheden er fremragende når man taler om badeferie og det var en god morgenmadsbuff'é Deres senge var ikke ret gode og når der nu skal forstille en dobbeltseng, kan de to boxmadraser godt være lige høje.
værelsets størrelse samt at der var aircondition, det har jeg ikke regnet med bedre tv-kanaler
Vi boede på hotellet en uge i 2010 og var rigtiggodt tilfreds. Denne gan skulle vi blot bruge en overnatnin på vejen hjem fra, Costa Blanca, hvor vi havde været til familiesammenkomst. Vi kendte adressen på hotellet og det var derfor nemt at booke online. Vi er måske blevet mere støjfølsomme med alderen. I modsætning til vores besøg i 2010 bemærkede vi denne gang, at der var tydelig støj fra nærliggende værelser.
Friendly, clean, very convenient for the drop zone. Good proximity to town. Food was very good. Bar had a lovely relaxing ambience. very noisy. Paper thin walls.
The man on the front desk was the friendliest and most helpful of all the hotel personnel that we have encountered in Spain. The sound-proofing between walls was very bad.
It was close to the dropzone, and seeing as this was a skydiving trip, this made it ideal - and nicer than the Castell Blanc which is the other nearby hotel.
Hotel staff were friendly and accommodating, rooms kept to a high standard. Pool area was a nice escape from the heat of the day. The hotel is very loud, noises seem to echo through walls as if they were very thin. In hotel entertainment on Tuesday night (playing to 4 people) could be heard on the 2nd floor late into the night. Breakfast is substandard and not to be recommended, bread/pastries hard, food unprotected from insects.
The rooms were kept clean and tidy. The pool area wsa ok. There was alot to dislike about this hotel, the food wasn't fresh, the breakfast was usually solid after being left out. The staff were unhelpful, after I had made a complaint. The walls are very thin, so noise travels through the hotel, they played loud music late into the night on a tuesday, even through there wasn't actually anyone in the bar.
The staff were very helpful ,yet again !! Especially the very nice young lady from Uruguay.
conditioning air ; silence ; breakfast and pool parties when you come the first time, you're not aware about card using : how to put it into the card reader to display light.
Udvid det trådløse internet, både hvad angår kapacitet og rækkevidde.
Et hotel jeg gerne vender tilbage til. Personalet meget imødekommende. Parkering var lige nedenfor hotellet, men dyr(10 Euro). Hvis man går en 800 til 900 m hen mod havnen kan man parkere for 2 Euro i døgnet. måske rigeligt støj fra gaden.
Særligt den gode beliggenhed. Derudover var morgenmaden rigtig god og med god betjening. Betjeningen ved hotelskrankem var fin og de ansatte var meget rare at snakke med og brugte tid på at opfylde vores ønsker, Det ene værelse, som stødte ud til en skakt var meget vármt om aftenen og natten.
et dejligt hotel i byen og ved stranden vi har været der flere gange og synes det er et dejligt hotel
Det er et sted man kan overnatte. Men vil på alle måder råde folk til at gå i byen og spise da der er en fremragende små resturanter. Maden på hotellet vil jeg beskrive som Junk food....!!! Der ud over ungå etage 5 :-) et + er der er rygning på hotel værelserne Lav blæseren på taget.....!!!
et dejligt hotel med smagfuldt indrettede værelser, køleskab og stor balkon med havudsigt og bjerge. Nedenfor balkon lille pool og lille grønt område med teakhavemøbler, samt restaurant - fremragende mad. På den anden side af vejen fin sandstrand. Venligt personale både i reception og restaurant. Fin rengøring. Roligt byområde. Med stil. Vi vil meget gerne komme igen ! Nej.
Kun forsiden af hotellet ud mod stranden/bugten virker romantisk - samt har en renoveret facade....
rigtig god beliggenhed med egen altan ud til vandet. Hvis man trænger til rolige dage ved stranden i et område med charme er dette en attraktiv mulighed nej, det levede helt op til forventningerne
der er ikke noget godt, kun dårlig oplevelse. da vi booker hotellet beder vi om værelse med altan , og da vi ankommer kan vi kun få værelse med vindue ud til en skakt, dette er meget for dårligt da bestilling er 1,5 md før ankomst, og personale er meget uvenlige og taler kun spansk, hvis det ikke er muligt at få det værelse man bestiller ,bedes man meddele os det pr mail så vi kan afbestille i god tid før ankomst.
Beatiful hotel. Ideal setting. Staff exceptional, friendly, very welcoming. Excellent restaurant, food worth a Mitchelin star.
The hotel was in an amazing location, you can lay in bed and still see and hear the sea lapping up against the rocks! The staff couldn't do enough during our stay......will definitely be visiting there again Nothing!!
Fantastic 5 day break. We will definitely be returning in the future.
The service and location
Beautiful location with great sea views. Staff were very friendly and attentive without being obtrusive.
The staff were very homily and made our stay very special.The gourmet restaurant was excellant and also the restaurant for lunch had freshly caught fish which was perfect
Excellent hotel, great staff, fabulous location. Slightly dated in a few ways. Smoking in or near the eating areas is a real problem for Californians
Everything. Lovely friendly clean hotel right on the beach The food was good and staff very friendly. We liked it so much we stayed another night at the end of our holiday which we booked direct with the hotel.
position and comfort off season so only very expensive restaurants open
Good service When asked about buses to Girona, the receptionist found that a bus went at 1030am, but didn't bother to come and let us know while we had a leisurely breakfast (she knew we were there), leaving us to rush and pack and take a cab to catch the bus! An annoying ending to an otherwise lovely stay
We enjoyed our stay tremendously. Just on the seafront with beautiful views of the bay. The hotel restaurant served great food - at lunch and at dinner and the breakfast was good to.
At hotellet ligger ud til strandpromenaden
Proximity to the beach, breakfast, how children oriented it was. Maybe you could change internet policy. It was annoying asking for the password every 24 hours.
Perfect location, just on the sea front. Spacious room with wonderful balcony with sea view. Free parking available. Only old people were there. Do not expect any night entertainment or parties in there
They have a good breakfast buffet The swimmingpool area is quite small, so it is difficult to have a place to sit and you are really close to the rest of the people
A friendly hotel in good location. The pool area and terrace bar are extremely pleasant. This hotel is kept to a very high standard. Our second visit in one year.
Superb view, easy to find, quiet, very convenient pool. Parking sometimes a bit difficult but that is nit picking really
Nice well situated hotel, good breakfast, pleasant rooms, staff very helpful
excellent condition of the building, rooms etc. perfect location nothing
The view, the cleaning of the room, the staff. The ceramic floors on the rooms.
This is our third consecutive year staying at Hotel Monterrey, Roses, over the Easter Holiday weekend. It continues to remain one of the nicest, well kept hotels that I've had the privilege to stay in. The kindness of the staff and their always positive can do, will do attitude is above reproach.. We will be making reservations soon for Easter Holiday 2011. A special thanks to Emi for her continuing efforts in accomodating any and all of our wishes or desires. It's a well run and well managed hotel. It rates a higher star rating than what is shown. Thanks again for another memorable stay. .... Virg Rogers, Barcelona
The location of the hotel, pool area, the cafe staff. The room was comfortable with a good view even though it was a "side view" of the sea. The free bicycles. The pool was said to be heated but was very cold. The reception staff weren't always helpful (some were, some weren't). For any travel/transport queries they told us to call the bus companies or go to tourist information-they were keen to promote organised tours or their own taxi contacts.
Great location, overlooking the beach and in the heart of the town. I had a great room on the front / top floor with a great terrace and sea view. There was also a fridge and mini kitchen in the room which was useful. The hotel was a little dated - think posh 80's hotel - but I quite liked that and it was perfect for my 2 day visit to Roses. The (seafood) restaurant is good. I can't fault it really.
Friendly staff, central location, great view No parking, breakfast not great
Excellent Sea view and breakfast.
Location, sea view, excellent restaurant downstairs Lack of tea and coffee cups in the apartment, cigarette smoke in the hallways.
Service and comfort -attitude of the staff was excellent.location near town centre and all facilities was good.Overall a very good choice. Parking was difficult.
Nothing Hotel dated, unclean and staff not highly motivated
We liked the location of the hotel and the room to accomodate our family of four. No services available. No internet connection proposed. No help in the front desk practically inexistent.
During the off peak periods this hotel is excellent value. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and include some self catering equipment. The location is good, near the beach and within the old town of Roses providing access to it's many bars and restaraunts. Our room was slightly worn and needed some upgrading but as stated above still clean and comfortable.
We were on our way to Barcelona, and found this place very refreshing and reposing. the hotel was a nice surprise, big suite apartment, nicely decorated and quiet as it's March.Great breakfast buffet. The personel was very pleasant and helpful It's true , it could be a difficulty for parking at peak times, we had to juggle with bags, where we could, as it was busy when we arrived. It was more of a problem for my husband as it is confusing when you don't know the city,
Breakfast was very poor, parking was difficult, hotel was dated, no balcony or even a view
beliggenheden helt fantastisk. Super service i baren. Værelset skønt og rent. Alt i alt rigtig godt.
Meget serice minded personale. Hotellet ligger perfekt i forhold til stranden. Deres pool er utrolig lille - nok den mindste jeg har set til et hotel.
Dejligt hotel med fin beliggenhed på stranden. Gode parkeringsmuligheder
Nice and relaxing
Good location and excellent breakfast buffet. Staff fairly helpful when you could find them. Good sauna and steam room. Reasonable value for money. Easy free parking. No towels available in spa. Very early check-out. Rooms and decor very dated. Had to pay for use of safe. Towels and pillows inadequate. More a three star hotel with an aged clientele.
The view was good High speed wireless internet in the room
We love the location and the facilities are always very good, also the staff are helpful We did have a problem with are allocated room because it really did smell badly of smoke even though it was non-smoking, but its was changed as soon as we asked
I thought that the hootel was fabalous very comfortable and staff were very friendly.
The hotel was right beside the beach, we had a lovely view and the breakfast was ample The front desk staff were, at best, curt and not at all helpful. The bar music was far too loud.
nothing really probably only good thing next to beach All done on the cheap here - not enough lifts for the amount of rooms so long queues for them if you are on high floor. breakfast bad with the quality of food poor. Pool dirty my daughter of nine refused to swim in it!!
quite rooms breakfeast good but lacked fruit reception very slow they prefered to answer all incoming calls25 miutes to get booked in
I recomend it
the proximity of the beach bread ,croissant not fresh
room comfort room smell
the breakfasts no air conditioning in the room
fairly priced, good breakfast, reasonably close to sea and restaurants, easy to get to by car. Food is good, broadwalk in the evening promedate was a plesant experience. Nice view from balcony. As a resort hotel quite noisy and crowded. Slow elevators, parking is a nightmare. Found a spot around nearby canal - 15 minutes away on foot.
good for children and teenagers very loud disco, difficult to put baby to sleep
nice clean room, quiet the lift
The room was very nice and the restaurant was excellent. The staff were helpful and kind The portable A/C unit in the room was new but noisy and not functional. The hotel would have been better advised to install another system. up to four silent room units can be installed on one outside compressor for probably a similar cost. i hope this comment is paased on as it is intended to be constructive.
very sophisticated design of the rooms and the hotel itself; moreover hotel is placed in the beautiful countryside, between beaches of picturesque town named Roses and the national park nearby Cap de Creus, giving you the possibility to admire truly awe-inspiring landscapes; ideal for a romantic trip ;); I would definitely recommend this hotel.
The old building was very attractive and the room was unique in its design. The location out in the country was very restful. There was no heat in the room on a cool night. The lighting did not cover important areas of the room. Although the stone sink was very attractive, it was not practical for washing. Instead of the exercise machine in the room, it would have been better to have a place to keep your baggage so that it could be accessed without putting it on the bed
excellent location, unfortunately not warm enough to enjoy the great garden an pool. love the room with open bathroom/ jacuzzi and seperate toilet. great tasting food in the restaurant with reasonable prices. Some great home made deserts. missing a complete door on the toilet so you the other person doesnt have to enjoy the smell
very friendly staff
The buildings are very nice and so is the setting - an original farm at the foot of the hills of a nature reserve, away from the concrete blocks of Roses. The staff were very nice and friendly/helpful. The rooms were last removated some time ago and the furniture, interior decoration and facilities could do with an upgrade soon - looks like 1970s right now. Some facilities like water glasses, bedside tables both sides of the double bed (not just one) etc were missing. Breakfast should start earlier than 9AM. We booked this hotel at a 50% discount. On the full rate, it would have been unthinkable.
Quiet location The hotel did not cater for the English at all. Rooms were very basic, no sun loungers, no parasols. It took half an hour to get a drink. Food was poor.
Acceptance of pets, ease of access to countryside. The litter problem is sad.
Nice sightseeing, nice bedrooms and nice countryside area no separations between bathroom and bedroom (no door between the two), not enough insulation as well
