Highs & Lows

  • Upon entering the traditional gates and the long driveway, you can immediately feel this will be a special stay. Our luggage was brought to our room by wheelbarrow while we sipped on our homemade lemonade! What a welcome!

  • Torralbenc is huge: the complex spreads out over several buildings, gardens, fields and even their own vineyards. Best of all is the fact that the sea is always in sight.

  • The staff has a contemporary feel for service: they’re young, relaxed, easily to approach and really add something to the hotel by giving honest insider tips on where to swim and drink & dine

  • Rooms are big white havens: there’s so much space, some are cottages with private swimming pools and others are in the former main building of the farm, both offer the highest level of privacy

  • The toiletries used in rooms and public spaces are made by Torralbenc itself…the main ingredients is rosemary which grows abundantly around the property
