This is a lovely hotel and a great location, fantastic staff - all in all its a definite must! We hope to return in the future. We stayed in a standard double room with ocean view and loved it. The private balcony was lovely.

After the hectic pace in Barcelona , Vista Bella was heaven. Nestled in the Roses Bay it offered us the peace and tranquility we wanted. We could not get enough of the views from our balcony . There is a lovely path from the hotel to the charming fishing village of Roses. The service was very friendly and everyone spoke English or French. We had no need to leave our piece of heaven as the food ,the staff, the beach,the balconies left us only wanting to come back as soon as we could. Ideal holiday!

Vistabella is simply the best hotel in the area including south of France and North of Spain, Mediterranean-area. Wonderful hotel, service, beach, breakfast, sun and Tapas.
It´s not a party-place, but if you need to relax, think, write a book, make love or work..Vistabella is da sh..!

The expensive restaurant in the hotel is probably very good, but we took a walk to restaurant nearby. This time we had to walk to Roses (20min walk) because everything nearby was closed beacuse Off-season (Late October)

Room Tip: Sea-view !

We needed a base while dealing with some work in the area combined with celebrating a personal special occasion. Nearly end of season, we sought a deal at one of the best located hotels on the Costa Brava...everything suited us perfectly. If you want acres of shiny surfaces, giant foyers etc. for your five star experience, this may not be the place for you. But if you delight in something altogether more personal; a feeling of being made absolutely welcome in someone's cliff-top beach house (a few easy steps to the sea) then Vistabella is the one. The location is perfect; palm fringed, southerly views across the Bay of Roses punctuated by the fishing boats leaving for their daily catch or the pink-tinged sailing boats returning at sunset. Myriad blues of the Costa Brava Mediterranean enhanced by the deep greens of the vegetation lure you out of your room to relax in this wonderful place. An ancient footpath invites further coastal exploration while the bustle of Roses with its nightlife and tapas bars beckons on the doorstep. Classic stuff, really. But this hotel seems to have paid special attention to quality of service by its staff. This is outstanding. Not only is each member of staff clearly identifiable according to uniform, they go out of their way to ensure you will have everything needed; from blankets for the outdoor terrace on chilly evenings, to making an omelette exactly as requested at breakfast (thanks Eugénia)- even to bringing the car round with a cheerful grin and chat in the morning (E, N and F!) If gourmet cuisine is your thing then Els Brancs looks great but we were just as happy with Juan (Barman Extraordinaire! ) organising tapas and rosé for us on the occasional evening. We were very grateful for the team of car professionals who handled the tricky parking effortlessly for each guest with good cheer and a bright welcome. Indeed from the welcome at the front desk through to the restaurant and cleaning staff, the team seem to have got the perfect balance of availability, excellent service and discretion which made for the perfect stay - along with managing to speak a great variety of languages. As far as we know; this is a family-run and owned hotel which has bells and whistles as needed; Michelin starred Chef; Champagne Bar (Pirata) on the rocks (literally!) in Summer...and glorious peace and quiet and great deals off-season (which probably suited us better). In short; it was a special occasion for us; the hotel and location were perfect but the family/ beach house feel and the wonderful efforts by all the staff made it a cut above the rest. We have lovely memories of Vistabella. Joy on the rocks!

Room Tip: Higher rooms have better views but we liked being near the beach access

Vistabella is a wonderful hotel. Booking hotels online can be, as you probably know, a gamble; pictures don't always accurately describe the facility, or its surroundings. We were gifted with a gem of a stay at a first class accommodation.

Many people opt for a Cadaques hotel in this part of Catalunya, which is a fine decision. We decided to stay in Roses, as it's more centrally located to other destinations, including Cadaques, Girona and Figueres. You'll need a car to get into town since it's located outside the city hub, but if that meets your requirement, I would highly recommend Vistabella. The jacuzzi, hot tub and pool are very nice and well maintained. Our room looked out over the bay, featuring a beautiful sunset.

They have FOUR restaurants on site. We weren't there long enough to try them all, but I'm amazed how they are tucked into the facility in an inconspicuous fashion. The included breakfast is incredible. I would challenge you to find something you want that isn't offered. It's one of the best breakfasts we've had anywhere, regardless of price.

On the water, quiet, impeccable service, beautiful rooms, wonderful food. Put it on your short list.
