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.

... atmosphere. After checking into our hotel we walked the streets and investigated this picturesque spot. Dinner was at a gorgeous place called Le Tremail where we tried some escargot (snails) and seafood. To our surprise, the kids loved the snails and asked for more after trying them. Great stuff kids! Of course they finished with some creamy chocolate and vanilla ice ...
... in touch with after our time here. Spaniards refer to our year as a parentesis -- a parenthesis. We certainly wrangle grammar on a daily basis (especially the many versions of past tense in Spanish) but the notion of this as a way to describe our experience really resonates with me. We're taking a pause out of our regular story -- to tell a slightly different tale.

We arrived in L'Estartit on Sunday 1st February and decided we might stay a week, the park was probably the best we have stayed in and it was time to chill for a bit. Yeh yeh, I know what you are thinking , chill, they are on holidays for goodness sake but sometimes even on holidays it is nice to not have to be somewhere or drive for hours. The break was just what was required. We arrived late in the afternoon and had a ...
Hello again, how time flies when you’re having fun!
Well we had a really hard last week at our workaway. Our host had ordered 20 tonne of soil which was to be used to build the earth bag donkey shelter. When it arrived it was supposed to be the consistency of sand but it was full of very large rock like lumps. Our host contacted the person who had delivered it who assured her that he would come back within the next couple of days with a huge ...
