Me my husband and 9 year old son have just returned from a weeks holiday 31st May - 7th June.We had a nice holiday but would not return to Loret De Mar.The resort had nothing to offer us.The hotel was very nice and kept very clean as were the rooms.The staff were all very friendly and good with our son.Our son spent most of his time in the indoor pool as you can't do anything other than swim in the outdoor one ( no ball games or lilos etc ).The food was of a good standard although we did find the breakfast very basic and some days struggled what to choose as there was only eggs on a few ocassions and no sausages.I would recommend this hotel but not the resort.

Hotel very clean, rooms cleaned every day, clean towels every day, we stayed here the first week in May 2012, rooms quite spacious, food OK nothing special. Reception staff very helpful, would stay here again, nice location, not in the loud part of Lloret, in the Fenals area, quite a few friendly bars around. Would reccomend to anyone who is thinking of booking this hotel. Lovely beach just about a 10 minute walk away.

serve me right,should have seen it coming,but sometimes i just blunder on regardless! a resort ugly almost beyond compare.i can see the appeal as a teens first holiday destination but after that,why ! anyway, im an old git and it made me grumpy.
the hotel was a reasonable deal with quality and maintained furniture and fittings. a bit more grass and garden would have improved the outside area but this has seemingly been sacrificed for the indoor pool which looks like its been knocked together by the local window fitter.
bar prices were a bit spiteful too.the food was very average for the first couple of days but a large influx of guests brought a very noticeable improvement.
so if you have to go lloret,this would be a reasonable choice in a slightly less caustic area......
but why would you want to go to lloret when tossa del mar 5 miles away is a way better choice.

Room Tip: watch out for the rooms by the nearby disco

Booked this hotel for a short break. We requested a quiet second floor room with a pool view and thats exactly what we got.
The hotel is in a quiet area but convenient to town center and beach.
It is very clean and the food was very good.
There is a spa and gym on site which was great for working off those extra calories everyday.
There is a lovely little Spanish bar across the road where the staff are very friendly andthe drinks are very cheap.
I woul have no problem reccomending this hotel

Room Tip: Pool view.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights in May. We arrived before allocated check in-time and were allowed to go straight to our room which was nice. The staff were excellent and understood my (very) broken Spanish, replying in English.

Most of the rooms are situated around a large open area with lift access to all floors. The rooms were clean and tidy, although a little dated.

When it came to evening meals there was a buffet selection of boiled pork, boiled chicken or boiled fish and a range of salad type stuff - it turned out that there was pretty much the same selection every lunchtime and evening so we ate out in the town most days/nights for a bit of variety. Breakfast was very good though, with a wide selection of continental pastries, juices, toast, pancakes etc. My tip is to eat well at breakfast and dine out in the town for the rest of your meals - just go for the B&B option.

Entertainment was a bit lacking, though we were a bit off-season. Speaking to a bar owner in town he said that many hotels have cut back in the last couple of years. The entertainment that was on could be heard clearly from the room (second floor) due to the open plan of the hotel - the performer went from about 9-Midnight and they then launched karaoke until 2am! Not good when you're tired after a day's travelling.....you could also clearly hear conversations and the reception phones ringing all night! A bit of soundproofing on the doors could go a long way.

In summary, I'd probably go back to this hotel but on a B&B basis and ask for a room away from the main square :-)

Room Tip: Try and get a room as far away from reception as possible - it's very noisy there!

We regret that the variety of the free buffet was not of your satisfaction, as majority of our clients do. In fact, according to our internal questionnaire and to online review pages, our guests are very satisfied with variety and quality of meals. Our Chef cares about making a two-weeks menu that is not repetitive, for those people who stays long periods with us.

About the entertainment, you're right remarking that is low season. From the next month, the entertainment is daily and much more complete, having events during morning, afternoon and night. We have to disagree with the final time you say (2am) as we finish the music at midnight (12am) for the good rest of our guests.

Again, thanks for your kind remarks. We take note of things were not of your complete satisfaction and look forward to see you soon at Hotel Aquarium & SPA or in any other of our hotels strategically located along the Costa de Barcelona-Maresme and Costa Brava.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Aquarium for a week from the 15th april as was recommened by a friend who had stayed there and said how great it was.. and she was so right.. the hotel is extremely clean, the staff are fantastic especially the dining staff and even the cleaners..the weather wasnt great that week but the hotel has a spa, jacuzzi, indoor pool so theres always something to do.. even the lifeguard was so friendly altho he couldnt speak much english, it didnt matter as he still tried to have a chat with you. the food in the restuarant is fantastic.. so much choice and lovely and fresh so couldnt ask for much more. Fenals beach is only a 5 min walk away which is very nice too.. would definately visit again and even looking to book at the aquarium again very soon
