stayed at the Europa apartments, we had requested on booking a high floor, pool view, sunny balcony, quiet room, unfortunately we were given a 2nd floor, back room , in the shade and very close the a nightclub, which opened the middle of our holiday, there were around 100 people roaming the street just below our apartment, shouting, drinking and taking drugs, this went on till 5am so no sleep for us, one of the men in the street saw myself and my friend looking over the balcony while he was selling drugs and he made a gun gesture to us, the next morning we went and saw the receptionist who was Scottish told her what had happened and she just shrugged her shoulders and said there was nothing she could do, she refused to move us, even when I said how easy it would have been for this man to climb up to our room as we were only on the 2nd floor, we were a party of two women 47yr old and 65yr old, so we felt a little vunerable for the rest of our holiday. The apartments are clean and had a full fridge/freezer and full bath with over shower and were very nice. The Europa apartments have a bar and restaurant which is very cheap and the food is very good too, even when you just have drinks they give you free tapas, and their gigantic burger is very good value it would feed 2 people for just over 5 euros. I recommend the little shop just around the corner Ricky and Margaret are the owners, very good prices, they even uncorked my wine for me lovely people, continue round the corner and you will find KD's they do a lovely rump steak hello Richard and Vicky lovely and friendly, next door to them is The Bull who hold race nights, quizzes, and bingo, and a little bit further up the street is The Shamrock who do a cracking full English with lovely big mugs of tea and coffee. Just a 5 min stroll down the road and you will come to the sea front, its a lovely walk to the marina, and market day in Blanes is Monday morning on the sea front but beware they close up and move on around 1pm - 2pm. There is a boat trip to Tossa which costs 21 euro your onboard for 1 hour 20 mins, and there are 3 different pick up times for your return there is a kiosk on the seafront for bookings and the boat leaves from the beach not the marina. Blanes is a lovely little resort and the people are very friendly. I would recommend the Europa Apartments for a value for money holiday.
