I was ready to meet the worst as I had read about it before the trip but it's not as bad as some reviews said. Meals are absolutely ok, fruits are available. As I noticed great part of this place's tourists are Russian, there are two receptionists who speak Russian, so it's a plus, I think. But it's noisy there.... More

I have spent some nights at different hotels in my life, and this hotel is the worst I have experienced. The staff is no flexible, even if you have a child. The guy who is the manager/supervisor is not a person who will get my money next time I need a rom. This hotel is in one word a disaster,... More

Cleaned rooms every day, fresh towels every day as well. Yes bathrooms quite old but not that bad. The water was very salty or something so when I took shower I could feel that horrible taste on my lips. Overall very nice, clean place, somewhere to put your head down. Close to the beach. Didn't have any problems.

We stayed for 3 nights full board, We found the food to be very good and plenty of it ,The hot plates being constantly topped up. The only thing we could fault if anything was the waiting for an...

The main thing is sea, isn´t it. We did not mind used furniture etc. The only we were really disappointed by, was waiting for the... More

This hotel is a desaster! Very unfriendly people working there, dirty and old rooms, bad food, it looked the same 20 years ago, Not a good place to stay at all!

I was very dissapointed about our stay here. Barcelona is very nice but the conditions from this hotel don't deserve any star at all. In our walks in Malgrat de Mar we saw very beautiful hotels and people having fun so i'm sure you will find a better location. - really bad food, i'm not picky but i could not... More
