... for a small excursion. Off to Ceret, a charming village about 15 minutes away. Famous for its cherries and bullfighting, though I don't think the two things are related. We were heading for their museum of modern art. The exhibition of the moment " Bullfighting in art" or something like that. Literally 100 s of object d'art, depicting Matadors and bulls. It wouldn't have been my ...
... Half an hour later, Henry returned, key in hand to release the car. Lucky us! It was due to be next opened on Monday, and it was a coincidence that the supermarket had a key as it wasn't their garage. Turns out, the sign to warn people had fallen down. Time for lots of sighs of relief. Ham procured, it was time to finally join our friends. As a group of 8 families, we have holidayed every two years for as long as I remember. I ...
... view, and bathed in it. Next step dinner in the best Italian restaurant in town! Yes, I know, in the gastronomic capital of Spain, and we head for Italian, but sometime compromise tastes the most delicious. Dark, as we left, next step the " Magic fountain"' or rather series of fountains that dance beautifully as they change colour. Built in 1929' they have been thrilling tourists ever since. ...
Arriving to Roses proved to be a little bit more difficult than I had inticapted. I had left a little late from Madrid, and I wasn't dropped off at the best place. So, I didn't have too much luck getting a ride. But, there is always a reason for everything. Some Polish people offered me a bed to sleep at the gas station/truck stop. And one of the men cried on my shoulder for quite some time, and I consoled him the best I could. The next ...
... stuff. some of the fish looked like teeny weeny snakes and some of them were so small they looked like teeny lines. At the beach we did a rock shop. first we got some rocks and then we put them in some warm water to get clean and then we dried them and put them in the shop. We did some rock climbing around the rocks next to the beach. The next day we went for a long walk and everybody got really hot. Then we went for lunch at a restaurant in a place ...

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.
