Weekend in Costa Brava


Last Saturday was Markus’ birthday and as a part of his birthday present, I have planned a weekend away in Costa Brava.

Even though there are many people who have dogs in Barcelona, unfortunately there are not many hotels that accept dogs :( It becomes even harder if you are looking for a 4 or 5 star hotel.

We usually don’t stay in fancy hotels when we travel as most of the time we don’t need the luxury of it. It is enough to have a clean and well located hotel. But this time I wanted to find a nice hotel and I finally found one that is nice and accepts dogs: Silken Hotel San Jorge. It is in Playa d’Aro in Costa Brava and it is just by the sea. It has a big outdoor swimming pool, spa and very good breakfast. There are two beaches just in front of the hotel. I would definitely come back again in summer.


We stayed in a sea view room so it was nice to be able to hear the waves every time we open the balcony door and see the sea even though the weather was not very nice on Saturday.

The cafe of the hotel was also very nice that serves fast food, beer and wine. We had a hamburger and a chicken wrap which were tasty so if you don’t feel like leaving the hotel, eating in hotel’s cafe outside, in front of the sea is not bad at all.

If you don’t fancy eating outside, there are some nice comfy sofas that you can also lie down inside the cafe. And if you feel cold, you can enjoy the chimney which is just next to the cafe.
