Firstly we arrived by car for 2 nights. We found parking difficult which is at different levels and got the last space. The walk with luggage from the bottom level was hard, unknown to us at that time you can walk through the B/F room to the lift. We were early and told we could not book in until 2pm...

We stayed in Garbi for two nights at the start and end if our cycling trip (in the rooms located on the 4 and 5th floor) and the views of the bay were spectacular. The hotel is dated, but comparable to other 3 star hotels, so it is advisable to set your expectations right, or you'll be left disappointed. We...

We had a very pleasant stay in this quiet confortable hotel, not far from the beaches and promenades. The included breakfast is fantastic. It is quiet, comfortable, with a laid back attitude. The large garden provides multiple opportunities for residents to meet with their families or others in a very convivial atmosphere.

Just back from the Costa Brava - my friend and I stayed in Garbi for the last weekend of our trip. The grounds were not busy at all and the pool area with all of the trees was gorgeous and just the relaxing feel that we hoped for our last two days. The room was nothing spectacular but we had...

I'm not sure why the previous reviewer objects so strongly to looking out over a campsite, perhaps they feel that people who choose to holiday in a tent or mobile home are in someway inferior? well hopefully they won't be coming back increasing the availability of the hotel for those of us who like it. The many Spanish French &...

Rooms were dirty and was smelly. The lady at the reception was rude and didn't help when needed. It's the first and last time for me. I will never recommend any of my friends visiting this hotel. I cannot understand people who's coming here for the second time, it's one of the worse places I've ever stayed in.

After reading all the good reviews o nhere i was lead to believe i had arrived at the wrong hotel. Firstly our room which was suppossed to be a superior room with a view basically looked over a campsite, at not a very picturesque one !! My 6 year old thought it was a refugee camp !! The shower leaked...

We have been coming here for many many years now with both family & friends . It is highly suitable for families with its excellent pool and closeness to the beach (although be prepared for 100's of steps in between!). It is a traditional family run hotel that has always remained a little behind the times, but that is part...

We are just back from two weeks in the Garbi in lovely (but VERY busy) Calella. We stayed in the older part of the hotel - room was fine with A/C etc and beds were comfortable. Pool was nice and quiet with poolside bar. Breakfast was adequate with the focus for the (mainly) Spanish and French guests. Lovely friendly staff...
