As far staff is concerned, I guess it depended on the people who you talked to. At the front desk, I had a rude experience on arrival, however later on everyone was very helpful and friendly. Internet connectivity was very poor, we needed this for work as we were not there for holidays, and it was very difficult to prepare... More

It looks great on the web but unfortunately we had to cancel our holidays. Refund was guaranteed and confirmed by the agency. But we never got any money back from the hotel. Dozens of emails (one reply), many re-sends and lots of excuses from the reservation manager. Still no money! some hundred Euros lost.

This review is on the hotel itself, not the ho tspring facilities (I'm here on a conference).... It probably was a high end hotel when it opened ages ago; at the moment it feels like an old hotel, not very well taken care of, with an overpriced restaurant, crappy Internet access and insanely dated rooms. The rooms are big, yes,... More

Very friendly and caring staff really tries to make your stay special. Very comfortable room with balcony and bathroom. The spa area is good, although several installations were not working. The massages and other special treatments are very good! Breakfast (buffet) is a treat, with different healthy options (lots of fruit!). I didn't have dinner at the hotel all 10... More

Excellent room, wide, big, confortable. Champange on the rocks waiting for you in the room included in the prize. The spa is divided in three zones: one for the personal treatments, another with sauna and warm pools indoor and the outside warm pool. You can stay at the spa al long as you want thing that I appreciated so much.... More

I have now been to the spa at Hotel Blancafort four times. I want to explore others in this area but so often when I have guests I want to be sure of a good experience so we just go back to this lovely place. I have never stayed in the hotel nor eaten there but I have used the... More

The facilities in the hotel make up for the accommodation. The rooms are quite shabby now and in need of an upgrade. Bathrooms are well presented and all come with bathrobes and flip-flops. The spa and gym are what makes up for the rooms. Excellent roman style pools with water jets and flukes to massage. Hot pools and a cold... More
