About Hotel Garbí

Situated in a gorgeous and tranquil spot under the pines, Garbi Hotel is a family-run establishment offering guests a little oasis away from the usual hubbub on the Costa Brava.

The 52 rooms are simply furnished, but comfortable. Each features air conditioning, flat screen TV, telephone and private balcony. Many have gorgeous views over the Costa Brava and the Mediterranean beyond.

There is a lovely pool area and Jacuzzi, under the shade of the pines, while families will find indoor and outdoor play areas for the children.

The main restaurant specialises in Mediterranean dishes, especially locally caught seafood. In summer, the tables are put out under the pines, offering a simply exquisite location to dine. There is also a pool bar, which has jazz performances on summer nights

While the hotel itself is a calm and tranquil oasis, the nearest beach is just 600 yards down the hill.

Positive Reviews

Incredibly peaceful and serene

The serenity created by the location and design of the hotel was probably the main reason guests booked at Garbi. In reading their comments it becomes clear that they were not disappointed. They described the setting as simply lovely, especially the large areas under the pine trees.d. They described the setting as simply lovely, especially the large areas under the pine trees.

Faultless staff

It was near impossible to find a bad word written about the staff. On the contrary, they were generally described as friendly and welcoming, but in a professional, rather than over familiar, way. Guests believed that they had clearly been very well trained and prepared.

Quick walk to the beach and town

While guests conceded that the town was tiny, the fact is that they said this made it really easy to walk to both the beach and the town centre, where they could find a few bars and cafes, particularly useful if they were looking for a change of scenery.

Negative Reviews

Rooms not well soundproofed

While the hotel is in a very quite area, and there were no complaints of external road noise, there were a few guests who said that noise in the adjacent rooms disturbed them at night. Going by guest comments it does not seem that effective soundproofing measures have been installed between rooms.

Questions about the breakfast

It was quite difficult to find recent (last three years) poor reviews. One point that did come up a few times was that the reviewers were not 100% happy with the breakfast. Unfortunately reasons for this unhappiness were not given.

Lots of steps

This wasn't so much a complaint as an observation. The outdoor area is often on a slope, which naturally necessitates many steps. Those with mobility issues should take note.
