The accommodation options are as varied as the wild coast itself.
Gleaming white hotels line the popular resorts, romantic getaways nestle inside old medieval buildings and modern apartments and villas provide an alternative option to family hotels on the Costa Brava.
Add to that rural accommodation in traditional farmhouses and budget-friendly hostels and you’re bound to find somewhere to lay your hat.
Hotels form the core of the Costa Brava’s accommodation options, and range from charming small boutiques to sprawling seafront all-inclusive resorts.
For cheap hotels and incredible holiday deals, consider one of the bigger resorts where the range of three-star and four-star Costa Brava hotels in 2018 is simply enormous.
Lloret de Mar’s seafront is tightly packed with hotels, while other resorts such as La Pineda, Calella de la Costa and Tossa de Mar also specialise in holiday packages and well-priced Costa Brava resort hotels.
The Costa Brava of 1990 might have had a one-type-fits-all kind of holiday, yet fast-forward to 2018 and the region is not short on luxury alternatives, including an exquisite five-star Costa Brava hotel or two.
Attached to luxuriously manicured golf courses, teetering on beautiful bays, housed in majestic castles, decked out in chic minimalist style or harnessing the traditional architecture of Catalonia, the Costa Brava’s luxe options are truly first-class.
Expansive estates with sublime pools, impeccable amenities and fine-dining restaurants characterise these resorts, which can be found on the outskirts of places such as Lloret de Mar, Castell-Platja D’Aro, Roses and also in the city of Girona.
You won’t be short of upmarket eateries either. Find out more on our page dedicated to eating out on the Costa Brava.
The Costa Brava’s delightful capital hosts everything from international chains to budget-friendly three-stars to trendy boutique hotels, and even a few cheap and cheerful hostels for the backpacker set.
Unlike many of the resort hotels, they throw their doors open year-round too.
Within the category of luxury Costa Brava hotels are the traditional country houses known as fincas, which have been tastefully converted into small rural hotels.
Ideal for couples looking for a slice of tranquillity, they are usually found tucked away in more remote locations along the Costa Brava.
Boutique by nature, fincas are typically homely yet sophisticated and provide not only seclusion and luxury, but a taste of old Catalonia with traditional decor and first-class amenities such as spas, swimming pools and pretty gardens.
Located in fishing villages such as Cadaqués, Begur, Madremanya, Llafranc and Roses, they are best accessed with a rental car and make for idyllic bases from which to explore the Costa Brava.
Self-catering villas and apartments are an excellent option, especially for families and large groups.
The main resorts have a plethora of apartments to rent. Empuriabrava is well known for its selection of modern apartments, although you will find them on the length and breadth of the coast.
For budget travellers, the good news is there is plenty of choice. Cheap hotels in Costa Brava resorts are in abundance.
There are also hostels strewn throughout the region, from Girona to the seaside resorts and tiny hilltop towns.
