“Full of Rude Foreigners!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Just returned from 1 weeks stay ,never heared one person speaking English in the whole week we where their! Full of everyother nationality! Breakfast and Evening Meals were just like a bun fight never met so many rude ignorant people in our lives! Filling their plates as well as their bags with mounds and mounds of food. Although the actual food was good except breakfast not a sausage or baked bean in sight, I am not a breakfast person so the cakes pancakes etc where fine for me but my husband loves somewhat something that resembles a breakfast eg; sausage beans (we had bacon one morning) But on a positive note the reception staff were helpful rooms adiquite and over all ok for a 3 star! probuably would consider staying again (If we got a very cheap deal to enable us to eat out for breakfast

My 2nd time a the Selvamar having just returned on the 27/6/13 after 7 days at the hotel.I really cannot understand the bad reviews or comments from travellers, all I can think is they go on holiday just to find fault or are far too picky.You won't find tea making facilities in your room,so what the rooms are spotless,yes maybe a bit dated but clean with all the facilities you need such as hair dryer,television,shower/bath,air con.The outside pool area is fantastic for adults and kids alike coupled with a childrens play area and indoor pool and tennis courts.Yes the reception staff are a bit off handish but you're not spending your entire holiday chatting with them so who gives a damn.Food wise not bad at all and please remember that the hotel is trying to cater for many different nationalities,if you want british food all the time then stay at home for gods sake.As for entertainment yes it's maily Spanish as in most hotels but you can still enjoy yourselfs.The bar next door to the hotel offers good food and service second to none(Cristina's) and Manolo and his staff are superb,try the bravos, a potato dish in tomato sauce,lovely.

Stayed here with my husband and 5 kids for a week. Rude staff who don't even acknowledge you, broken glass doors, completely unsafe with kids, flies on the breakfast buffet, broken lifts, no tea or coffee making facilities. British people are treated and glared at by the staff as second class citizens. I'm by no means picky and have stayed at some poor hotels but this was beyond anything I've ever stayed at. Lloret de Mar is an ok place if you like being harassed by shopkeepers and trampled on by ignorant people, never again!

Room Tip: Book somewhere else!

The room was spartan - no tea/coffee making gear; bed undersheet plastic, rustling whenever one moved at night; the decor was poor. The atmosphere was awful (dead bar/disco area, which was large but virtually empty and with loud disco) - although we'd booked for 7 nights, we quit after 4.

This hotel may be good for young people in Summer - Lloret de Mar is full of discos; has a good beach; compact - but in Winter it was dire for us (tho' the hotel said they had lots of repeat older people in Winter, so maybe me and my wife were just too demanding).

The staff were friendly; the food was good. The nice balcony overlooked the town to the sea, so was good.

Room Tip: Go and see whatever room you've been allocated, but be prepared to change immediately - check th...

This hotel was quite a disappointment. On arrival it looked promising ,but how wrong we would be. The man on reception was the most ignorant and unsociable man we have ever met. Waited for 20 mins for room key whch he gave us without even speaking. We were on the 4th floor. Room very basic with no tea making facilities. Twin beds were metal framed (like camp) beds although the matresses were comfortable. Tap on bath continuously running, and shower over was poor. Second night we were kept awake from 12 until 5 in the morning by people running up and down and shouting. Only entertainment was DJ playing mainly spanish music and drinks seemed expensive.Food very poor and cold. Thin, small chips every night(no other potatoes) and needed microwaving each night. Will never return to this hotel.
