“We loved the hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2011

we stayed at the San Sebastian Playa hotel - we had 3 rooms. Everything was great. The location is perfect, right on the beach. The rooms were very clean and spacious. The showers were great. The front desk personnel were very helpful with places to eat and suggestions where to go. They have wonderful towels for the beach. The breakfast was very good. Parking was available but VERY tight - would not recommend a van or larger car. Would love to go back.

This was the best place I've stayed in in Sitges. I need to go on business occasionnaly and have had a tough time finding a good place to stay for a reasonable price. I now need to look no further! Free internet. Great room. Great breakfast. Great price. Great location!

We would really want to like this hotel. The location is superb, the building is very nice and the breakfast is certainly above average. However, there was so much noise that we had trouble sleeping every night. You could hear everything from both the corridor and the other rooms. The wall between our bathroom and the one next door was so thin that it was almost like someone was taking a shower in our room when they were actually doing it behind the wall. It's hard to be happy with the hotel if you can't sleep. If they improve the insulation, this hotel would be a great choice.

@ znkl thank you very much for your tip! we are now working on the insulation of the rooms to reduce the sound. The first rooms are done and we are making good progress. I expect most will be done before the summer....

hope to see you back in Sitges soon! save travels...

Went to San Sebastian Playa Hotel for just one night during the Sitges film festival and have nothing but praise for this hotel. We had an amazing suite with a balcony overlooking the seafront. The room and the view were so perfect that it was an effort leaving it to go out for dinner but Sitges is well worth exploring. We didn't use the hotel restaurant as we had continental breakfast (very nice with fresh fruit) sent to our room and we didn't have time to use the pool facilities. I think this hotel would be great for any sort of stay - business or pleasure (has free wifi in the room) and it is really perfect for a romantic get away. The few staff we encountered in our short stay were delightful and I can't wait to go back

Things I liked:
the bed, roomy bathroom, very close to the beach, close to town, great map available at the desk

Things I didn't like:
- the free wi-fi is very spotty
- you can really hear people walking around because the floors are tile - affects sleeping
- the staff's English isn't great and they are extremely unhelpful - you'll often be ignored
- when I asked for a city taxi (50 euro to airport), they booked the ridiculously over priced service car (75 euro) anyways
- they also didn't understand that I was splitting the bill with the person I stayed with, so I got charged for all of it

We spent 2 days here after a Cruise and it was perfect! After 22 years in the Hotel Biz I can say this place was Excellent, Juan Carlos at reception VERY cool after we couldnt open the window blind properly and swooshed us to a new room in 2 minutes, room service beachfront was super. The pool area a great retreat to read and relax. We would have spent 5 more days there given the time, Sitges a very very hip spot that has everything, WE ARE GOING BACK NEXT YEAR!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2010

This is a 4 star hotel in an excellent location in the old town with a family beach not more than 2 minutes across the front, with an excellent bar next door.
Rather more a 3 rather than a 4 star, the hotel lacks its own bar. The breakfast was quite poor and the service tardy. The swimming pool area is quite restricted and lacked daily maintenance. On our leaving, being late in the afternoon, we had to shower in the pool shower (cold) and dress at the pool side, due to the lack of a hospitality room.
Undoubtedly , the star of the hotel is Lili Anna, at the front of house. Definitely the most welcoming, efficient and friendly receptionist I have met in many years of travelling.
