Review of El Montanya Resort & Spa, Seva, Catalonia, Spain

I stayed for one night at El Montanya Resort and Spa in Seva, north of Barcelona during the #catexp BlogTrip09 hosted by Turisme de Catalayna in December 2009.

The style of the hotel was quite Scandinavian with lots of wooden panelling. I liked my bedroom, it was cosy with a relaxed atmosphere and a balcony a wonderful view over the mountains.

There was an excellent wired internet connection in the bedroom and very good wifi at the hot spots in public areas. The only downside was the lack of sound insulation as I could hear voices and every movement from the adjoining rooms.  This is an issue if you are looking for quiet retreat.

The restaurant, bar and games room are on the ground floor.There was a roaring log fire in the bar area, very welcoming on a cold night.

The dinner buffet was absolutely amazing with the biggest selection of desserts I have ever seen in a buffet. I like the Catalan style salads which include fruit and my favourite was the walnut and strawberry. There were some very tasty aubergines. You could select various spare ribs, sausages and chops to be cooked freshly on the open grill.

The breakfast buffet was excellent too but I didn’t have time to take a video as we were left at 08.15 and after the enormous late dinner (which starts at 21.45) I couldn’t eat much.

I didn’t visit the spa and pool in the hotel but my fellow bloggers reported that it was beautiful.

In summary I think the hotel is a lovely location offering great views over the surrounding countryside, a fabulous spa and fantastic food, the only negative being the lack of soundproofing in the rooms.
