Very clean and tidy, well equiped and easy to access with the lift. Fantastic views even in the not too good weather, across the bay. Only down side was car parking. We had to park in public park 600metres away but then managed to park much closer later on. We would both love to go there again!

The old town is only a short walk away too. L'Escala is a very friendly place and Marc was extremly helpful and pleasant. Enjoyed our stay.
