    Very good

    The food was fantastic and pleanty to eat. Rooms were spacious and very clean.

    Hotel staff would want to go on a refersher course on dealing with the public. They were not very nice or helpful, especially the bar staff. Was very dissappointed the spa was not open and we were not told about this on the website.

    The location was good for my coach transfer - I only stayed there one night so didnt really get chance to experience the hotel much. Friendly reception staff on arrival at the hotel and pleasant bar staff.

    The dining room was very dis-organised and busy all the time - staff did not seem to be controlling this well. Guests were fighting for tables at breakfast time - making this an unrelaxing experience and quite unpleasant Food was running out quickly and not getting replenished quick enough if atall. Glasses, crockery and cutlery were all dirty in the restaurant.

    1) 10 minutes by car to get to Port Aventura. 2) free parking around hotel, parking inside the hotel 6 euro

    1) breakfast was awful, everything wasn't tasty - juice was like Yuppi, sausage and cheese was tasteless, pastries was dry and hard, we only ate scrambled eggs, because it's hard to mess up it. 2) there are no hair dryer and refrigerator in the room. 3) insulation from the street is good, but we could hear every word from the corridor. 4) air conditioner was very noisy, it interfered to sleep, but if we open the window then music animation interferes to sleep. 5) boring animation (sat 10 minutes cooperate for the interest)ю 6) far enough to sea (walking about 5 minutes)

    We've been in Europe for nearly one month and this is without a doubt the worst hotel that we've stayed in. It's very noisy, the staff and hotel policies were very unaccomodating. They should change the name to "The Nickle and Dime Hotel". The safe cost extra plus deposit for the key, the parking is extra plus deposit for the key, the tv remote requires a 30 Euro deposit and the tv had a screen of about 12" and has only one English channel. The bed had some sort of plastic cover under the sheet. In other words this is a dump even though it's not that old.

    La ubicación del hotel, cerca de la playa, de zona de compras y Port Aventura.

    El servcicio de Wifi era de pago y no llegaba a las habitaciones, tenías que bajarte a la recepción para coger algo de señal. La comida un poco regular y la bebida del comedor hay que pagarla a unos precios excesivos.

    La relacion calidad precio es excelente, un hotel precioso, reformado y limpio, la comida genial y abundante. Sin exigencias, por supuesto, pero muy correcto. El personal del comedor iban volando por los pasillos. Las habitaciones muy bonitas y limpias y confortables, reformadas y nuevas, el personal de limpieza muy amable y simpaticas.El personal de recepcion deberia ser un poco mas paciente, tenian mucha gente en el mostrador, pero deberian tener mas paciencia, y sobretodo no desmerecer al turismo nacional, porque parecia que que teniamos menos categoria que los extrangeros.

    Very good

    De kamers! De kamers vond ik fantastisch, het was er schoon en het rook er erg lekker en de badkamer was ook brandschoon! Je mag er niet roken maar elke kamer heeft een balkon en daar kun je wel roken dus perfect.

    De bedden waren redelijk maar de kussens waren slecht, heel slecht. Ze waren heel dun en tegelijkertijd hard, ik wilde hem dubbel vouwen omdat ze zo dun waren maar dan had je het idee dat je op een baksteen lag met je nek in een haakse hoek dus dat was ook niks. Maar behalve de kussens vond ik het een hotel wat zeker voor de prijs uitermate geschikt was en zou het ook aanbevelen bij vrienden/familie.

  • 7.8
    Very good

    El trato del personal del hotel me ha parecido fantastico y la tranquilidad ya que apenas se oye ningún ruido.

    La unica pega que yo pondría es la poca variedad en la comida para los mas pequeños, nosotros podemos comer cualquier cosa que nos apetezca, pero para ellos es mas limitado y no vi mucha variedad en ese sentido.

    La comida un poco de "batalla" pero por lo demas bien

    en general todo el hotel, aunque yo ya lo conocia y sabia que el personal es excelente en el trato. La comida es casera y de muy buena cálidad, además de variada.Ylas instalaciones en general son muy buenas. Para mí un notable.
