I have just come back from a short holiday in Roses, Spain. We stayed at the three star hotel Nautilas where the the reception staff were very pleasant and helpful. The room and bathroom were very clean and each day the towels were changed. The room had a balcony which was great, however, it was above the bar where guest artists performed. It was good that the hotel provided entertainment but if you find it difficult to sleep perhaps you should request a room not facing the road.
The hotel has a restaurant and I enjoyed the buffet meals. The restaurant staff were friendly and efficient and the waitress assigned to our table made a point of welcoming us each time we sat at our table. I found it better to eat earlier rather than later as there was more variety at the start of the meals.
The pool was a good size and like all places in the hotel very clean. I found the pool almost empty if I chose to swim around seven o'clock in the evening.
I think this hotel is good value.
Generally we had a pleasant stay at hotel Nautilus.
The staff and service is the big + for this hotel.
Also, it's close to the beach and it has events at the bar every night (great if you have kids). The pool is nice with no bar and with a person to look after the children.
We had an economy room which is smaller than the standard room but it was ok for 2 people.
In the room there is not fridge and a/c but only a fan, but it was ok it wasn’t so hot!
It's at Santa Margarida area not in Roses so if you wan't to go to Roses centre there is a bus stop right in front of the hotel so its ok!
The important - for this hotel is:
-a broken chair in the balcony. They took it the next day, but they didn’t replace it. (we didn’t mention it because we stay only 2 nights), and
-the noise in the bathroom. We heard everything from the other rooms. And if you know that they hear you the same its quite awkward!
We had a pleasant stay in this simple close to beach hotel. The room is acceptable. There is no AC but it did have a fan. My wife, 16yo son and I shared the small room. The room had 2 single beds. The third bed was just a cot with a mattress. My son and I were comfortable at night, and my wife didn't complain.
The breakfast is a buffet with meats, yoghurt, boiled eggs, and just okay breads. It beats a croissant but isn't in the same league as a northern Europe hotel breakfast. Still breakfast is fine.
There is parking at the hotel plus street parking was very easy. Free wi-fi in the lobby. The beach is just down the street. The hotel bar is mostly open air and is a good place to relax. At night part of the bar becomes a little disco. It is great fun if you're an 8 yo girl wanting to dance the Macarena with a bunch of other little girls. The swimming pool is quite nice.
3 people with breakfast included at 99 Euro/night seems fair but maybe a touch high. I certainly would stay again and won't dissuade anyone from choosing the Nautilus. The staff is pleasant. Recommended for families. Not recommended for people accustomed to luxury.
By having our own one bedroom apartment in Roses we have friends who come to enjoy
this fantastic part of Spain. We cannot accommodate them but we ALWAYS recommend the Nautilus Hotel. For the money its almost faultless. English is not generally spoken but with
a bit of patience it is not a problem. Speaking just a little Spanish or French will give you an
We have stayed here ourselves for a couple of nights when we had elderly relatives staying at our apartment and really enjoyed the hospitality.
All of the staff are really helpful and friendly. A smile works wonders !! A brilliant place to stay.
Stayed at this hotel last year but thought I'd write a review as it is lacking in British reviews.We travelled to this holiday on our motorbike and found the parking to be adequate for our needs regarding the bike. Wasn't sure what to expect as previous British review was a long time ago. We found the staff to be very pleasant in particular the lady on reception who could speak the best english. She was very helpful when we discovered we had misjudged the number of nights we were to stay and needed an extra night especially as this was the world cup final night in which spain were playing. The atmosphere that night in Roses was not to be missed.
We were on half board basis and found the choice of food good enough to always put together a meal. Always soup, choice of hot meats,fish, etc as well as salad and cold meats. There is a freezer you can help yourself to icecream which is placed near the desserts and fresh friut. Same at breakfast plenty of choice and you could boil your own egg if you wanted to.
We had a room at the front of the building at the end which was of a good size and clean. We found a large freestanding fan in the room which we needed as the week we were there it was very hot. Don't recall there being airconditioning. We could hear the bus pulling up outside every half an hour during the day which takes you to Roses. If you decide to walk this is do-able but will take about 20mins but there are lots of places to eat and drink on the way. Roses is a lovely little town with good shops, narrow streets, masses of cafes and restaurants. Can get a meal of the day with a few courses which when we were there was approximately 10 euros. Drinks in our hotel were reasonably priced with the glass of cava being the offer of the week at about 1 euro 50.
The hotel seems to have mainly French and Spanish on holiday, no Brits. We were there when the French schoolchildren had just broken up for the summer and the hotel was quite busy. Couldn't tell you about the entertainment as we always went to the seafront in Santa Margarita or walked to Roses. All in all we had a very nice time and would definately return to this hotel as for value,cleanliness and closeness to the sea it was excellent.
