Barcelona, Spain1 contribution
Lovely hotel when it was in its prime. However Hotel is tired. Paying London prices in May in Palamos ! Room has a music system for CD's and iPhones that dont even exist anymore. No coffee machine. Wall, furntiture and fixtures needs painting Hotel is nothing like the photos. Grass around swimming pool is too long and looks messy Main hotel areas were nice, but again very tired Food in restaurant was ok, my lamb was not hot and was then heated by microwave!! No staff offered to help take luggage to the room However the staff were very nice and helpful on the whole. The Dutch lady (maybe manageress) was really nice and helpful - she even offered an upgrade when the internet was not working in our room We had a lovely time, but they really need to spend some time and money making it feel fresh and invest in more modern amentities

Me and my husband chose La Malcontenta to spend 3 days to celebrate our first anniversary and it was the worst experience ever. After the covid situation the hotel was not in good conditions at all and we paid 200€/night. So, they kept the high price but they are currently offering a 3 star hotel maxmium. The grass was burnt, the furniture was in bad conditions, the swimming pool was depressing, the food very basic, etc. So, it was insulting to compare it with the photos on their website. Finally, we decided to leave the hotel and chose other hotels but our fully experience was totally ruined. Although we expressed our disappointment we did not get any discount. INot coming back ever.

On our way back to Mallorca our ferry was cancelled due to bad weather, which ultimately lasted two days. After trying most hotels in Barcelona we could not get accommodation as no hotel would accept our pet dog ( German Shepperd) due to his size. We then had to widen the radius and came across this excellent hotel. We called and Marie, the manageress , was most helpful and said our dog was very welcome. Once we reached the hotel we were pleasanty surprised. The decor is charming and with only 14 rooms it feels very private and homely. Marie gave us a superb room, which was great value for money, with plenty of space for our dog. We were made very welcome and the service was first class. We dined in restaurant on both nights and the food was superb and reasonably priced. Luciana , the manageress of the restaurant, was very friendly helpful and professional. The hotel is situated less than a km from Castell beach and there are some superb hikes around the coastline . We would highly recommend this hotel if you are visiting this area.

You have to drive through a small industrial zone to get to the hotel but don't worry it is set among the pine trees and we walked about 1 km to the beach. All very quiet as it was November. The breakfast was good with a selection and you could order eggs if you wanted them, the staff were charming the rooms lovely and warm and the beds huge and comfortable, restaurant was OK serving local Catalan food.

I think at one point this was probably a good hotel. Now not so much. We went there for a family trip for six days arriving on Friday. One of the sinks in the room was not working. They told us they could not fix it until Monday. Ants everywhere, even on the bed, they came from the bathroom. They finally gave us another room, but I am still waiting for an apology or a price reduction. Nothing. Limited breakfast options. There is only what they give you. A two star hotel when it comes to the food. Bad management. They did not communicate with each other very well. They are lucky the location is good, but I would advise to book at another hotel or even an Arbnb. Not worth the money you pay.
