Spain - Language Barrier

Jump to last reply

We are thinking about planning a trip to Spain next year and like to do our own driving with extended stays in the smaller cities and towns mixed with stays in larger cities. We have been to Barcelona and Madrid in the past but are thinking about a longer visit with stays along the Costa Brava or Costa Blanca region combined with some larger city visits.

We have visited France, Italy and Germany extensively and have found most people speak at least some English so we can communicate if needed. I've read that most people in Spain do not speak English. Will we have issues with communicating if we don't speak Spanish? Do the hotel operators speak English?
