    Overview 8.70 /10

    It's always nice when the hotel architecture is the slightest bit traditional when you're abroad. The Balneario Blancafort, built in 1846 and renovated in 2004, was inspired by centennial Hispanic architecture with its outer walls painted bright red, and the railings and window frames in ochre-yellow. The result is superb and majestic, and gives the impression of walking around a princely villa. The outside is full of surprises, like the very modern metallic mobile hung above the indoor swimming pool, protected by a glass ceiling. The gardens are like a dream world, with their romantic and melancholic atmosphere. The lobby is very stylish, decorated in tones of cream with large leather benches where guests are offered a refreshment while waiting for their luggage to be taken to their room. Contemporary artworks are displayed almost everywhere (they belonged to the former owner), adding a cheerful touch.

    Food and drink 9.20 /10

    A true delight. The buffet breakfast (served in the El Olivo restaurant) is generous and varied. The fruit juice is fresh and the bread and breakfast pastries are made on site. Eggs, ham, sausages, dried and fresh fruit, cereal, jams with or without sugar...there's something for everyone, both those with a sweet tooth and those who prefer simple but healthy. The other meals are eaten inside, at D'Ors, or in the charming outside restaurant (only open in summer) protected from the sun by the foliage of the big trees, and illuminated in the evening by oriental candles. The decoration in the D'Ors restaurant is classic yet chic, and meals are served à la carte (and change every day). The food is simply divine, refined and tasty all at the same time. The minced pig's ears and tail in honey with a soybean purée is to die for. Fresh products take pride of place and the fish comes straight from the market.

    Spa 8.7 /10

    The hotel's main strength is its famous Thermal Centre, a sort of large glass cage with cascades of water running down the walls. At the entrance is a beauty salon and a lift to take guests to the spa, which which is so huge you could get lost in it! Indeed, there are no fewer than 45 treatment rooms. The Thermal Centre is designed like the Roman baths, under an exposed stone vault with a frigidarium (cold bath), a tepidarium (warm bath) and a caldarium (steam bath). It also offers different ambiances, with superb oriental and Balinese lounges for couples treatments. The air is full of incense and essential oils. The many à la carte treatments cure just about anything. Finally, there are two saunas, a gym, a relaxation room where guests can help themselves to tea and coffee, and a lovely indoor swimming pool with hyromassage jets. On the fabulous sun lounge on the upper level guests will find heated thermal pools in winter.
