We stayed here for one week from 18/05/13 - 25/05/13 and we had a great time. I will get a couple of negative comments out of the way first. I found the food a bit repetitive and not the best selection in the world, there was nothing wrong with it, but a bit more variety would have been nice. Children were allowed to run about unsupervised while their parents were nowhere to be seen, no doubt in the bar, you know the type. This situation repeats itself in the restaurant where, I for one, don't want other peoples little darlings running around my dinner table and don't get me started about the noise.
The hotel is lovely with excellent rooms, ours was on the third floor and had lovely views of the pool and sea. The room was spotless as was the rest of the hotel.
The staff were fantastic and the lady who is responsible for guest services, Kelli, deserves a special mention. Her customer skills as well as her local knowledge need to be applauded. The Thomson team were superb as well.
The area around the hotel is fairly quiet however you can take the train to Barcelona for about €10 return with the journey about one hour each way. The station at Pineda is a 15min. walk away from the hotel. If you want to go for a drink or something to eat try the Buccaneer pub which serves excellent food and drinks all at reasonable prices, again, a 15 min stroll.
There is a local tax of €1 per adult per night payable on check in. We were advised of this when we booked with Thomson so thanks for letting us know.
In summing up the hotel represented excellent value. Sort out the unruly kids and vary the food so that next time I visit my rating will be higher.
