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.

... and it said that if you look carefully, you will see to the right of the wall a Phallic symbol which is believed to offer protection to the city, hahaha, imagine a penis protecting a city. Outside was an amphitheater or what is left of it which would have sat approximately 3,500 people. I could ramble on all night about this place but I won't bore you. Tomorrow we head to Carcassonne France to the walled city, excited for ...
... amount of time there, looking at most things twice. The architecture of the building was gorgeous too of course. However, the rest of the town was not really built as nicely, I think Barcelona and Lyon win on style of architecture, but it was still a nice place. I don't really think you need more than a day though to be honest, it's quite small. I also took the hike up to Castell de ...
Last day here. We are going to the caves this morning and then having paella for lunch, so keen to finally have some traditional Spanish food. Last night dinner was quite good, we went to a restaurant and had muscles which were so yum! Also some fish soup which was strange but good. It's sunny here today and looks like a beautiful day. Let's see how the day pans out ...
... to walk down to the beach, which was about a 49 minute intense walk, so good. Reminded me of being in Australia. Once we got to the beach, we relaxed a bit and took photos like true tourists. The walk back was slow, I was racing ahead as I was super thirsty, but kids being kids slowed down this process. We had a few drinks once we got back to the lighthouse, this was good! I'm pretty into a few Spanish songs, after listening to them repeatedly on the car trips. ...
... warm and muggy. Paul is still wearing his shorts and t shirt and we’ve had to turn the heating off in the van!!
St Cyprien is definitely a boat lovers town, the harbours were huge and crammed with expensive yatchs, and traditional fishing boats who sell their catch on the quayside every morning (if you get up early enough)! This is contrasted by the less glamorous high rise apartment buildings and the tacky seaside shops and ...
