This hotel is in a great location as it's right near to the beach. It's really close to the bars and restaurants along the beach, but is a bit further from the main busy street of shops, bars and restaurants which is probably actually beneficial as near the main street would be much noisier. The pools a little small but... More

We have tried 3 hotels in Platja, this was be far the best option! Homey, clean, refurbished, top location, nice breakfast with spanish and continental options, quiet rooms, nice little pool and very friendly owners! And not the least, good value for money.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Its a simple hotel with clean rooms. The beds aren't great, but not bad either. One of the hotel's finest features is the friendly and polite staff. Also the location is great, really near the beach (30 meters walk?). Stayed here for two years in a row, and definitely coming back here!

We discovered Hotel Els Pins circa 15 years ago, and it is where we stay there when in Playa de Aro, which is once a year. The location is ideal and everything is walking distace: the town's main road with restaurants and bars and shops, and is also at only a few meters to the beachfront. We always have impeccable...

The rooms are clean and quite simple. We missed a refrigiator. Dinner was tasty. Breakfast was quite plain with bread, butter, cereals and juice. Ham, cheese and marmelade. The staff was following us when we were eating,and when we filled up our plates. This gave us a feeling of "maybe I take too much food". We didn't like the staff... More

The two things that make this hotel special are the nice family owned atmosphere and the sometimes average but most of the time really good local catalan meals that they serve. Though I will never understand why they do not serve real butter for breakfast (they have something like "grease with butter".) + Rooms are simple but nice and clean... More

Our travel were based on "Catalan Experience" review and we are quite satisfied with our choice. Els Pins is very good place to stay if you are looking for base to look around. Very friendly personnel. It runs facilities the hotel has pretty well. Our room was clean and we were very pleasured with meal (we used half board). And... More
