Vintage Hotel & Lounge Cap Sa Sal in Begur, Costa Brava

Posted by
|

Location: 

This fabulous hotel is located very close to the village of Begur. From there, a nice road drives you to some of the most spectacular “calas” (coves) in the Costa Brava. Next to “aiguafreda” we arrive to a dead end. At you right side, almost above the sea, we find the Vintage Hotel & Lounge Cap Sa Sal.

Ambience and service: 

Terraces and gardens in different levels, integrated in the mountain, a very nice restaurant, very cozy and romantic rooms overlooking the sea. The whole place is completely different to many high class hotels in this region for it’s unique location.

Now, writing in my laptop in a little table in one of those terraces, I’m feeling like if I was in a big boat ready to cross the Mediterranian Sea. I sea water below and beautiful rocks in front of me, we are in a cliff, between the sky and the sea. I have the same sensational feeling in every place I sit or stay around here. The whole hotel is facing Mediterranean Sea, everything is ready to make you forget about any troubles you may have. Just relax and enjoy.

Richard, the owner, told me they opened 4 years ago (2008). Took them 9 months to adapt and restore the old building to their needs. The result is excellent as you can see in the photos I made.

Great service in the hotel, also helping with ideas and recommending interesting places around. Everything is very clean and you can see thay make good efforts on keeping the place beautiful. Flowers, trees, gardens, water… a very special spot, a hidden gem in the Costa Brava.

Rooms: 

8 double rooms ideal for couples and 2 familiar rooms. All of them facing the sea. They are very romantic and cozy. Mine has a nice antique desk, a very comfy bed, parquet flooring, tv and a great shower! In addition, there is an outdoor terrace right at the entrance of the room, so you can relax and enjoy whatever you want to do there while hearing the water and feeling the breeze of the sea. Really special.

The most remarkable thing is that I could see the sea from my bed. That would be enough to come here.

They have rooms in two different levels. Two rows with 4 rooms in each one. Familiar rooms are located in a higher building, from where you’ll enjoy best views. The Vintage Hotel is in a cliff, so they adapted the construction to nature of the place, and that’s what makes it so special.

Facilities and services: 

Richard told me many things they offer. One of the greatest is the massage service in your own room. Ask for it to the staff and just relax.

  • Free WiFi
  • Buffet breakfast with fresh fruit, ham, cheese, jam, toasts, juice, tea, coffe, etc.
  • Salt water pool integrated in the cliff and facing the sea. Amazing!
Restaurant: 
There’s a very nice restaurant in the same hotel open for guests and other people. Enjoy the culinary art of their magnificient chef. Original and delicious dishes while enjoying the views and atmosphere. Specially great at night if you want to finish your meal with a drink with friends, family or couple. Candle lights, tables, sofas and chairs spread through terraces and spaces in different levels, all surrounded by trees and nature. Good music selection at perfect level too.
Personally, I had fantastic lunch and dinner. Vegetables brochette and delicious special soft red peppers fill with mascarpone, tuna and prawns. That was the starter. Main dish was a classic from the area: catalan style rice with prawns and shrimps (arròs caldós). Simply amazing. Some wine and, as usual here, great seaviews. The whole package is hard to beat. I almost forget… dessert was very original. Presented as fried eggs with fries, it was really a yoghurt cream with mango. Ketchup was replaced by a strawberry sauce!
 
Around and activities:
As you’ll be facing the sea and surrounded by nature and amazing hidden spots, the best thing I can recommend is that you explore, walk, drive and discover by yourself. Anyway, the hotel staff is very helpful if you need an extra advice.
I recommend a short walk from the same hotel to Aiguafreda and Sa Tuna coves. Both are little and silent, great for a quiet and  wonderful bath.
La Illa Roja, Sa Tuna, Fornells and Aiguablava are very nice coves too, and they are very close. You can visit medieval villages like Peratallada, Pals and Monells. Art and culture in Cadaqués, Figueres (Dalí Museum) and Girona. Amazing gastronomy all along the Costa Brava, Golf, Scuba Diving in the Medes Islands and beautiful Balloon trips to see it all from above.
 
Price advice: 
Hotel: 120-160€
Restaurant: 35-40€
