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.

Empuries was the furthest outpost of the Greek Empire and although it is not thought Hannnibal ever visited, legions of Romans used this spot as a disembarkation point for invasion. Greek and Roman ruins are evident. Whilst we were visiting, the exhibition in the local museum focussed on the sex lives of the Romans. Those racy Romans!
