  • About this holiday

    Hotel Gran Claustre is a four star hotel in the mediaeval town centre of Altafulla, just 14km from Tarragona in Catalonia. The hotel makes an ideal base for exploring coastal and inland areas, thanks to the superb location just one hour's drive along the coast from the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona. There are many pretty beaches and coves to discover nearby and opportunities to take part in water sports or activities such as cycling and horse riding, or visitors can head further west past Tarragona towards the natural scenery of the Ebro River Delta. Alternatively, guests may wish to just spend a few days relaxing in the hotel’s spa and wandering around Altafulla and nearby Tarragona, or to stay as part of a longer touring holiday around eastern Spain.

    Our opinion

    Hotel Gran Claustre is a fantastic hotel with a focus on well-being and gastronomy, occupying an 18th Century building in a small town.

    Hotel description

    Hotel Gran Claustre is a four star hotel in the coastal town of Altafulla, less than 15 minutes’ drive from the centre of Tarragona. The gastronomic hotel is found in the mediaeval old town beside an 11th Century castle , combining historic architecture with modern interior design. The hotel’s terracotta coloured exterior, intricate arches and balconies exude Mediterranean luxury, while exquisite comfort and intelligent designs of the cooling stone floors and long windows unify the hotel’s interior. 39 rooms and suites are divided between the historic and modern wings and are decorated in a tonal range of sophisticated colours, from earthy greys and sand yellows to fiery reds and muted oranges. The hotel’s restaurant incorporates local and seasonal ingredients into dishes that epitomise the authentic flavours of Tarragona, with an open kitchen that encourages diners to admire the chefs’ skill. The vast range of vintages housed in the restaurant’s cellar, including wines from Priorat, Penedes, Rioja, and Somontanos, accompany the delicious food. Head to the rooftop Jacuzzi to relax against the beautiful backdrop of the town's mediaeval buildings or discover the hotel’s outdoor swimming pool in the original courtyard. The Spa and Wellness centre has a range of treatments and facilities, such as whirlpool baths, saunas, and hydromassage, which ensure complete relaxation. While staying at the hotel, guests can explore the historic buildings along Altafulla’s narrow streets, discover the natural beauty of the surrounding coastline and hinterland or visit nearby Tarragona.
