We stayed here in early September and both had a really fantastic stay. Nowhere is perfect and as a three-star hotel, Garbi does not pretend to be. But, what it does do, is try its best to be a welcoming, friendly place with some good facilities and great food. I don't feel the breakfasts have been mentioned enough on previous reviews. There was an enormous selection of hot and cold food catering for all nationalities with local delicacies too. We had the buffet meal on Saturday for our evening meal and were genuine bowled over at the standard (we eat out a lot and do have high standards) and this passed with flying colours. It was full of interesting seafood dishes and meats with an amazing salad selection too. What I think really makes this place though is the staff who work incredibly hard and ALWAYS have a smile. The breakfast staff especially are a credit and the bar staff in the evenings are always so friendly. The cleaner we had was also incredibly attentive and would always wait so patiently until you'd completely left the hotel or were at breakfast before entering or disturbing.) Again, always smiling and being friendly. Finally, despite a few steps (who honesty cares when you're in a beautiful place), the location is fantastic. There is a supermarket about 2 minutes walk away and the beach and restaurants are incredibly close. I would really recommend this hotel for value, food and service. Thanks for a great stay.

There are limited hotel options available in Calella de Palafrugell, so when we discovered there was availability at Hotel Garbi during the long weekend - we booked immediately.

The hotel is located at the top of the hill in the town and provides lovely views over the coast. Our room, whilst comfortable, was basic and a bit dated. Our balcony overlooked the car park at the entrance.

We were awoken abruptly the next day with other guests talking loudly in the hallway, but this isn't a fault of the hotel.

We spent most of our time out of the hotel, but we appreciated the complimentary beach towels. Breakfast was also very good, with a selection of buffet options with a separate section for people with specific dietary requirements.

If staying here again, I'd pay a bit more for one of the upgraded rooms to enhance our stay, but it certainly wasn't a bad stay.

Nice hotel in some lovely grounds
Nice pool with sun loungers good for after lunch.
Reasonably good breakfast (included) and a good G&T in the evening (extra)
Note that it is quite a climb up from the beach and the town centre, but well worth it.
We had an upgrade to a superior room which was a big room with a nice little balcony
The bed was comfortable, the bathroom a little odd (I really wouldn’t have put the toilet paper holder right where the shower is splashing.
The best was the A/C in the room, very quiet and the room was always neither hot nor cold (and it was hot outside), this is far more unusual than you would think in hotels.
Friendly staff I would definitely recommend this hotel

We have recently returned from another wonderful holiday at this hotel. It is situated in a wonderful area of the Coast Brava.
The hotel itself is situated in a wonderful location and is an excellent mixture of tradition and modern amenities.
All of the staff are wonderful. Special mention to be made of Maria who is charge of so many things and is so helpful and welcoming. Her team at reception is very good. Max who is the Maitre D' is also caring ,friendly and so welcoming.His team are excellent: Dani and Jose seem to be everywhere!As were all of the other waiters and waitresses. the Breakfast team also superb. The gardener works endlessly as do the domestic and laundry teams..
What I am trying to say is that this splendid ,family run hotel exists in many ways because of the loyalty and efficiency of the staff.
we will return again and again.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are stunning.

We recently went to the hotel for their regular Saturday evening buffet dinner.

Very good food - huge choice of starters and mains, and they barbecue steaks and fish on request.

Wine on flow all evening.

Very good service (Max gets a special mention although they were busy).

Last but not least - terrific value 32 Euros per person.

PS We stayed in the hotel back in 2004 - it looks like they're doing a good job of maintaining it.
