Hotel Aromar
Ranked #15 of 32 Hotels in Platja d'Aro
Reviewed 18 July 2012

We arrived at the hotel late on Thursday evening and from the moment we arrived the service was excellent.
I will admit I have stayed here before but it is always a pleasure.
Location is great ....however the beach is a bit far away - 20 meters
I will use the hotel again and have recommended it to many friends.

Room Tip: Fly into Girona airport transfer is only 30 mins

First of all, we arrived here and the reception was reasonably friendly and helpful, once told were our rooms were we waited at the lift for at least 5 minutes before nothing happened and we had to carry our suitcases up the stairs (we did not use the lift once because it wasn't worth the wait). We got to our room to find that we had to pay extra money for the key to the fridge that we needed to keep medication cold.. What kind of hotel charges to use the fridge ? ? ? The location is the only really good thing about this hotel, we literally walked out the door and were on the beach. Although being on the 1st floor and looking on to the roof of the restaurant wasn't a pretty sight as it was covered in rubbish. The air-conditioning didn't work in our room as the air-conditioning doesn't work when the door to the balcony is open (our door was broken and didn't close) they told us at reception someone would fix it while we were out which didn't happen until about the 3rd time we asked. We had been in Spain for 6 days and we had stayed in two other hotels during this time which were the exact same price and to compare them is just unreal... who cares about location location location its wasn't worth it in this case. . After all of this we arrived back to our hotel at about 8p.m and decide to go down to the restaurant/bar for a drink as they had a band playing which was good... until they didn't stop playing until 1.00a.m. . when you are on the 1st floor.... and your door doesn't close properly it was so loud there was no chance in sleeping until it was finished.... this happened everynight we stayed there.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL ...

To start with the receptionist made a complete mess of telling me where to park (I had reserved a place). Twice sent me to occupied spots and another that was impossible to enter.
Room would have been about OK as a single but it was a double. More like a cupboard. Chrome bath fittings cruddy, tiles loose and generally tatty.
And only one lift - this in a hotel with eight floors i.e. P, 0 and 1 to 6.
If you want TV they want 30 euro deposit for the remote control. This sums up their approach to customers - life would be a lot easier if there were none I suspect.
Seems OK for pensioners with low expectations. I certainly did not want to eat there.
Needs investment and decent management.

Hotel Aromar is well situated towards the southern end of the pleasant long beach at Platja d"aro. We stayed for 2 weeks and really enjoyed it. We paid extra for a front facing "club room" on the 6th (top) floor. It had remote control air conditioning , a jacuzzi bath and a great sea view - so close to the sea that the noise of the waves might bother some people but not my wife and I! We stayed on half board (breakfast and dinner) and would rate the food as average. Plenty of choice and buffet ,so you could eat as much as you liked. Bar area was a bit dull and could have done with brightening up. Main downside of the hotel is that it had only 1 lift which meant long waits at busy times. Hired a car for the 2nd week and managed to park in the surrounding streets, but would be a problem at peak holiday times as the hotel has very little parking and charges about 10 euros a night to do so.
