“Old dirty dame with a lot of potential. Expensive will not recommend”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2009

A very old sagging dame. The rooms were recently refurbished in a French country style, however the old TV sat on a black Ikea counter and totally destroyed the ambiance. The rooms are small with no air conditioning and you need it in August! The amenities were a bit better than the envelopes they some times give you, but just the basic. The common areas could be nice since there are a lot of nice pieces just very badly arranged. There are also too many plants full of dust. If they had only a few in good condition and in good shape it will be a lot nicer. There is so much potential but it is an old hotel and they always seem to be pretty full so I guess they have no incentive to clean their act or to be friendly. But I think is just the Catalan temperament, short bordering on rude. The friendly people were always from somewhere else in Spain. There is no refrigerator or coffee maker. The breakfast was ok, lots of cold cuts, good bread, cereal, yugurt and pastries. The coffee was from one of those machines with powdered milk it was terrible! This is a very expensive hotel for what you get. The pool area could be nice again if it was taken care of. It does have a great view. The access to the beach is in the opposite side and you have a long walk with stairs. This is not a good hotel for people with disabilities for sure. Free wi-fi in the lobby. Again this was a last minute decision to go back to say good by to my family in Playa de Aro and there was only one other choice, just as bad as this hotel.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2006

my self and 13year old son had a 11 night stay in the hotel.

we only had the breakfast in the hotel for the first three days thought it was basic food and nothing hot was offered for the breakfast.

we did have one meal in the night time and it was not too bad. but saying that we both prefered to travel a bit and try different restuarants. we had a car for our stay which was very handy since we travelled to palamos and playa de aro every night to eat out. playa de aro has a good night life while palamos offered a more scenic flavour. The local water park is only one kilometre away which we did visit twice on the holiday.

the pool at the hotel was nice and food was available if we wanted but we just used the hotel as a port for our return of a night before going out again. the pool tables and table tennis were both used extensively by our selves at the hotel and the internet was used a couple of times.

we did not meet any other english at the hotel, which we didn't mind. overall the accomodation was fine and the weather was great. i would visit again and would recommend the hotel. it is more suited to honeymooners though and couples. not much entertaiment for the kids.

thanks
