TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Rocamar Cadaques
Hotel Rocamar is situated at one end of the bay at the beautiful fishing port of Cadaques. Expectation rises as you travel through the narrow lanes of Cadaques and along the seafront. It is situated on a hill and designed so that the restaurant is on the 4th floor, sea on two sides, with the most wonderful views of the picturesque port above the surrounding pine trees.
We were not disappointed with the delicious dinner, which was very good value for money and served with attentive, professional charm by the hotel staff. The breakfast buffet next morning was generous, with the freshest of fruit, bread and pastries as well as both hot and cold meats, yoghurt, cereals and cheese.
Our room was fairly small and simple, with a mountain view, but perfectly clean, witha good sized bathroom and great shower. The public rooms in the hotel were airy and spacious. We liked the sense of history that pervaded the building.
We used the outside swimming pool, which had breathtaking sea and mountain views, with the pebbly beach a few steps below. There was a cafe beside the pool, and in the same area, a tennis court.
If you do not mind an older type hotel, staffed with friendly charming people, enjoy a beautiful place, with artistic history evident every time you turn round, together with delicious food, you will enjoy this hotel.
The hotel was in the upper end of our price bracket, but money well spent. We had a most relaxing stay and hope to return.

... of the longer stays.
We took a walk into the local village, Capmany, this morning, found the cafè/bar and got an ice cream and found the deli and got lunch, a nice walk around the narrow streets before we headed back to the site. After lunch we had a game of pétanque and chilled out in the sun. This evening we will pack up ready for our move tomorrow for the first of our longer stays.
Next stop Benicassim, 260 miles. More to ...
... 50 years. We also visited his museum of jewelery, which has some designs that are truly lovely as well as being zany and unusual.
After digesting that part of the Dali experience it was on to Cadaques on the nearby Costa Brava, a beautiful original little fishing port where Dali and Gala lived between 1930 and 1982, when Gala died. On the trip over to Cadaques we climbed over wind-swept Mediterranean coastal ...
... made very welcome, maps and information and our room was great. We took a wander down to the oceanfront where the harbour was surrounded by small restaurants/bars and shops -each had their turn in the sunlight! We became tragic tourists and travelled on the tourist road train which went for an hour and did a great job of travelling the extremely narrow streets , past some beautiful crystal clear coves and exclusive houses onto the site of ...
... had been covered from edge to edge with turf. Yep - this is the weekend of Dejeuner sur l'Herbe .....what a great idea, and it completely transformed the look of this already gorgeous winding street.
We arrived just as a WONDERFUL Argentinian duo was finishing up...dammit! Just got a couple of snaps and heard the end of their final song....wow...talk about colour and movement. And ...
... Placa Reiel, and drinking Sangria (that brought back some unpleasant memories of a previous visit to Barcelona involving a very large bucket of Sangria). It certainly is an interesting and lively city and it would have been fun to spend more time here.
Our last day in Spain was spent at a beach near the village of Cadaques. The weather, still in the 30s has been superb and we were keen to make the most of it.
