arrived in lloret 9pm oct 6, and dropped off in what looked like a carpark ,with no sighting of the hotel, pointed in the direction by the driver, we then had to cross two roads and walk about 300meters to the hotel, we found this quite stressful, and could be a major problem for someone infirm having to cart all luggage on the roads,it was dark, and thank goodness not raining,
on entering the hotel we found the reception to be spotlless and very nice.
we were allocated room 502 on the fifth floor, the room although spotlessly clean was a bit on the small side, but with a lovely balcony overlooking the pool, it seemed the hotel had been dropped from the sky , surrounded by the backs of grubby apartment blocks and this was our view for the week.
the pool area was very good with a large circular pool , and a choice of sunbeds (it was october),and an excellent indoor spa, with swimming pool ,gym, sauna etc,brill if the weather was bad, and no extra charge to use.
the big let down for us was the restaurant,although the ambience was nice we found the food on offer to be poor, with very little choice,they had two soup urns marked SOUP but both the same soup, with no labeling of what it was, meat choice was limited, such as chicken breast or meatballs,(no showcooking)
breakfast was the same(no english breakfast here), so again very limited choice,and not worth the effort to get up for, coffee was from a machine and was undrinkable,
so to sum up, the hotel is spotlessly clean throughout, our room was nice, if smallish, and the general facilities of the hotel were first class, location was excellent for the shops,beach ,bar's etc but not for it's views.
would we go back, maybe, but room only.
we gave up on the restaurant by toward the end of the week and ate out at THE ORIENT EXPRESS, really friendly staff, brilliant setting, and good pub grub type food,rcommended.
just as a point of interest,where have all the BRIT'S gone, we were the only ones in the hotel,and we never encountered any out and about either,so it seems the COSTA BRAVA is no longer the place to go, although we found it to be very nice.
get a room with pool view, as this is the only view you'll get, also it has the sun all day.
