We had a room at the back of the hotel on the second floor - it's was a pleasant room, all you would expect. The view was fine, but a first floor view is of a wall!
The hotel is at its best if you can get a room with sea view. Also the hotel does play second place to the restaurant. For example no terrace of an evening as restaurant takes over.
Breakfast was your normal - nothing special and they ran out of items.
What was really nice the little extras - for example free beach towels and bag each day and hat! Very large towels as well.
Would return only if we could book the exact room we wanted.

My wife and I visited here with some friends and had booked an absolutely beautiful table with a view to die for just as the lights around the village appeared. The service is excellent with all staff bright cheerful and willing to help . The menu selection is varied and might not appeal to everyone , however the helpful staff ensure you make a sensible choice and then the fun begins . An array of starters and little appetisers appear and disappear equally as quickly!! The Wagu beef is cooked to your taste and is excellent , with a superb selection of wines and great advice if required this make for a memorable evening .

This was our third visit to this restaurant with its wonderful location overlooking the bay at Llafranc. Previously we have enjoyed food which could best be described as the ultimate refinement of classic Spanish cooking packed with flavour and cooked with soul.
This time the flavour was seriously lacking and a desire to be clever eclipsed any hint of soul.
But what really took the shine off things was the haphazard service - a parade of different waiters, a sommelier who seemed like he couldn't care less and a host who wasn't much more interested. It all smacked of a place whose staff feel their reputation means they no longer need to pull out all the stops.

We first saw this hotel a number of years ago, simply by walking down the steps running past the restaurant terrace, and vowed we'd give it a go one day. Well, we did, and, whilst not perfect, is definitely somewhere we'd return to (as do many of the guests, apparently). The hotel itself is very nice and comfortable, if perhaps a little cramped in the corridors and in some rooms (although not ours). The rooms have had a makeover in recent years, and are pleasant enough.
The star of the show, however, is the restaurant, which is just superb, and commands a wonderful view over Llafranc. One can eat a-la-carte (and in fact, it's probably a requirement if you want a table on the terrace with that view), but staying half-board is great value, as it only costs an additional 24 Euros per person per night, for a 3 course meal with 4 (count 'em) amuse bouche.
Staff are also professional without being stuffy. A name-check in particular for Maria, our waitress most nights, who made us feel very welcome. And Cesi at breakfast is also a real asset. And also Ester and Celia, who helped get my partner's spectacles repatriated when she left them behind in the taxi to the airport.
Finally, if you want a sea view room (and you should try for it), be prepared to book many months if not years in advance. That's how popular this place is.
Finally finally, I'm not sure why this place is listed under B&Bs and Inns - it's plainly a hotel, guys!

Great setting overlooking Llafranc.
Staff was friendly and pleasant to associate with at all times.
Our room had a balcony with a nice view and the while room itself was not overly large it was very adequate for us.
The only down side is the concrete stairs coming up from Llafranc that pass close to some of the rooms. There is a chance you might get some noise from walkers in the evening.
Breakfast was fine. The usual mix of meats. cheeses, fruits and breads. Ample quantities and good quality. Nice sitting on the terrace at breakfast.
If we returned we would stay at this hotel again.
