“Fantastic location and great facilities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

We booked this hotel both beacuse of the reviews on Trip Advisor and because of some personal recommendations from people who regularly visit Stiges. For a 3 star hotel it has fantastic facilities and lots of little extras (such as the cava "on tap" throughout breakfast). The pool area whilst small has lots of lovely daybeds and chairs and you always seemed to be able to get a spot largely because the other guests don't seem to hog beds by leaving their towels on them all day. All the reviews mention the breakfast and rightly so as the choice and range is fantastic and the quality excellent. The head waiter who looks after the breakfast service was the friendliest and most courteous member of staff in the hotel and the fact that they serve from 8am to 12 noon and never seem to have problems with available tables, or uncleared crockery is credit to him and his team. The rooms are great- small bathrooms but they have everything you want. The front rooms with balcony are definitely worth paying extra for although if you don't like the noise and bustle of a busy resort at night then book one at the back as Stiges can get lively at the weekend.

The only issue we had was with the service in the roof top bar which is a real shame as this is a fantastic area - beautifully furnished and maintained with views to die for. The main problem was with a member of staff called Thomas who seemed to mostly cover the day shift. He was incredibly moody - sometimes smiling and joking but over times downright rude. The lady who seemed to run the bar at night was far more friendly (and speedy) but overall the bar lacked welcoming staff who seemed happy to serve and help people enjoy their holiday. Even at their best all the staff in the bar gave the impression they'd really rather you didn't bother them by going up there. By comparison the ladies who cleaned the rooms were absolutely charming - always full of smiles and "holas" for all the guests who walked past them.

Overall this is a great hotel and comes thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms ending in 02, 03 or 04 if you want a sea view. Probably 203 or 303 so that you are...

Excellent value, very pleasant personnel and exceptional breakfast buffet including tapas and cava (sparkling wine) ! The bar at the roof has a superb view (but the lady who runs it is rather strange and kind of unpleasant ...)

Room Tip: We had a nice room on the first floor with view to the sea and just accross from the swimming pool

We have stayed at this hotel a number of times and reviewed it.

The Trip Advisor reviews speak for themselves. However, the following highlights of the hotel may be helpful. The reception staff and all staff are welcoming; the breakfast is stupendous; the Wi-Fi is free; good quality beach towels can be renewed each day for a returnable deposit at the end of your stay; there is a safe in the room; the pool area has been improved and is now like a modern spa; the rooms are kept spotlessly clean by excellent housekeeping; the double beds are very large; the air conditioning works well; the rooms with balconies have french double glazed windows and there is additional roll down window shuttering which keeps out light and reduces noise; the hotel is perfectly located for restaurants, beach, bars and shopping; there is an additional service in the evening when used towels are renewed and the bar/terrace at the top of the hotel has some of the most stunning views of the sea and the cathedral in Sitges.

We stayed in a second floor room with balcony at the rear as there were no sea views available at the time of booking. The seaview rooms with balcony at the front of the hotel are regarded as the best rooms. If you stay at the rear of the hotel it is better to have a room with a balcony. The configuration of the hotel at the rear means that first floor rooms are level with the pool showers and the pool. If you have a room at the rear, it is best to request second floor or higher.

Our bathroom was a little tired with not much shelf space but it is clear that hotel renovations are part of a rolling programme and no doubt this will be improved.

In our last review we drew attention the bar service which was very slow. The management reacted very quickly with additional staff. Service on the bar/terrace has improved. The service is best when Carmen is there but can still be rather slow even with a number of staff. Carmen was very welcoming when meeting us again which is very much appreciated.

One of our friends accurately describe the atmosphere in this hotel as "homely" and to a very great extent that sums it up. You do feel as though you are valued customers and you are recognised by the staff. The management is to be congratulated.

It is always difficult to strike the right balance for all hotel customers, but this hotel comes pretty close to it.

We would not stay anywhere else and we recommend it wholeheartedly.

Thank you, for the lovely things you said.
I guess the highest compliment we can be paid as accommodation providers, is to have guests return and enjoy their stay for another time, thank you for that and for your company. Thank you very much.

IS TRUE!!
Our first visit in Sitges, picked Platjador for its recommendations and location.
To be honest we should have given it negative in all rows, howelse can we get a chance to get a room next time, but we need to be honest and in this case its NO PROBLEM,,
THIS HOTEL is one of the best when it counts to service, location, breakfast and overall expressions we ever visit.
Please dont book it so WE can return at least 2 or 3 times a year.

Thanks for a wonderful week, charging our batteries, and added 2kg thanks to your gourmet breakfast.

Best Regards Fam Briselius

This is probably my fifth stay at this hotel in as many years and it is still very, very good. The only downfall for us this time was that we were given a room with no balcony and since we had booked for 14 nights we asked to get this resolved. The receptionists tried their best and after 3 days we had to pay for an upgrade and eventually got a very small balcony, but this was better than the first room we had. So the holiday seem to start now. We had booked with Travelrepublic and probably didn't read the small-print re: balconies. The room was big and the housekeepers did a brilliant job. The breakfast is a little different to what it had been, in my opinion it used to be better. There is a varied choice, I would say too much choice and too much time spent doing silly things instead of looking after the essentials e.g. having "COLD" milk or "HOT" eggs. There is still Cava if you wish in the morning and a great selection of fruit, juice and good coffee, the service is good too. We ate in the restaurant one evening and it was good too. The hotel offers beach towels and a parasol for a returnable deposit so you dont need to worry on that score. I would still rate this hotel my No. 1 in Sitges. many thanks to all the management and staff.

Thank you, high praise indeed! And a big thanks you for taking the time to post a review. It´s great to see at guests again, we will work as hard as we can, to see you next year keeping up with the effort and illusion for making your stay in SITGES unforgettable.
You wrote a good point, about the balconies, because is important that the people who wants to come to Platjador Hotel know, we have rooms with or without balcony, if the room name is standard room, that case, won't have balcony. The balcony has to be specified in the room type.

Thank you again! we will be waiting for your sixth visit!

I never stay at 3 star hotels but the reviews on Tripadvisor swayed me to stay here. I am so glad I did.

We had a twin room with balcony overlooking the pool at the back of the hotel. Our room was comfortable and a good size and the small shower room was clean and more than adequate for our needs. Our towels were changed twice daily ( I thought this was a great touch).

Breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice and because it ran until 12, we never felt rushed.

Although the pool is quite small it was perfect for cooling down and relaxing in the jacuzzi jets. All of my group enjoyed the area around the pool - comfortable sun loungers made it the perfect afternoon sun trap.

The rooftop bar was the icing on the cake - often the start (and end) of a great night.

Throughout our stay the staff were kind and courteous , always maintaining an air of professionalism.

Based on my stay, I would happily recommend Hotel Platjador.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for a few days after a cruise. This hotel is modern and just across the street from the beach - convenient location, close to shopping, restaurants, etc.

The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included with lots of choices.

Our room was excellent, quiet, on the pool side of the hotel, king size bed, flat screen television, safe, and mini fridge. The bathroon was a good size, well appointed with lots of towels and amenities.

We enjoyed our stay and certainly go back.

Loved the cats!
