Stayed there a few times and i am going back this xmas 2012 with the wife. The facilities within the hotel are wonderful ie: Spa area where you only pay for rental of towel and towelling robe( not expensive ) If you visit on a weekend they have a lot of over 60s from spain and france so they play ballroom music etc for entertainment. But even being young it is still a great atmosphere. Playa de Aro itself is full of restaurants and bars. The local beaches are very beautiful and just down the road 3 km you have the beautiful San Pol beach S'agaro with its beautiful Catalan architecture. The rooms have all recently been re-furbished and are of a very high standard . The premier rooms have jacuzzi bath in the room and lovely balconies to sit relax and watch every body else stroll around the streets of playa. Situated in the very heart of playa only 2 minutes from the beach it is a far superior hotel to nearly all the 4 and 5 star hotels in Playa. I have visited and stayed in quite a few of them and the only advantage they have is the quality of cuisine, evry thing else is sub standard to la Terrassa.
