“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

Just arrived home after 4 nights in Bell Repos and felt I had to write a review while fresh in my mind. What a great hotel! So friendly, the owner couldnt have done more. We had pretty awful weather but she had some great ideas of places to see and go. One of the best recommendations was a visit to 2 medieval towns, although you do need a car.Also great tips for restaurants too. The hotel have an agreement with some of the local places and you can get a 2/3 course meal with wine for €12 each , which is great value and good quality food. We went to Dolce Vita and really enjoyed it.
The breakfast buffet in the hotel set us up for the day and had decent coffee too. If you have children there is a good selection of toys in the entrance and plenty of comfy looking seating outside (too rainy for us to enjoy) The only thing I would suggest is if you are a light sleeper, you may want to pack some earplugs as the walls are quite thin. But even that wasnt a major problem.Book now!

My husband and I loved our stay at the hotel. It is well located and a very good price. The staff are friendly. The breakfast was great. Though we don't have children, we were impressed with how child friendly it seemed; lots of kids toys around and even a step stool in the bathroom.

We came for three days and stayed for a week. We were lucky to be upgraded to a slightly larger end room which made our stay that much more comfortable. A big thank you to Sonia, Luis and all their staff for their very friendly professionalism. They go the extra mile to make your stay as pleasant as possible. There are bikes for hire together with free parasols for the beach etc. The hotel is conveniently situated close to both Platja d'Aro's excellent beach and the town centre, has private reservable parking and a pleasant garden and terrace area. If you have a car I would eat in St Feliu in the evening, where there are a couple of authentic Spanish-Catalan restaurants which are much better value for money than anything you will find in Platja d'Aro. Apart from the beach and odd shops there is not much in Platja d'Aro, but it is a good base for discovering the surrounding countryside where there is are things to see. My wife's wallet was snatched from her bag in one of the shops so keep your eyes open.

Loved this hotel!

First of all: great friendly service. Sonia and Lluis, the owners, and all the staff that works in the hotel are very nice and helps a lot with tips and suggestions about what to do in the area.

This little familiar hotel has a splendid location, next to the beach and the main shopping and restaurants streets. You can go everywhere in Platja d'Aro just walking, and that's very important for me, as I need to left my car parked for some days if I want to relax 100%.

Nice and clean rooms with complete bath and balcony. Amazing breakfast buffet with homemade cakes!!!

Nice garden and terrace where you can relax, dinner and drink some quality cocktails. Mojito's are spectacular too.

If you go to Platja d'Aro in the Costa Brava you should consider this option very seriously.

Sonia and her staff make this family run hotel a joy; they could not do more to ensure a happy stay. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and comfortable; the rooms are very pleasant and the balcony spacious. The buffet style breakfast has something to suit all tastes with yoghurt and fruit; selections of cold meats and various breads and rolls with marmalade and jams. The speciality of the house was undoubtedly the delicious chocolate cake which I wouldn't normally eat for breakfast but couldn't resist.

The hotel is in a perfect and peaceful position with the beach just five minutes one way and the lovely town of Platja d'aro the other.

Thanks to all the staff for making our stay so pleasant.

Everything is great about this hotel - rooms comfortable with large balconies.The breakfast buffet is excellent with a huge choice, and the hotel public areas are very comfortable and newly decorated.

The location is great, close to beach and town centre but in a quiet secure location.

The best thing about the hotel is the attention to details and small things the hotel provides and does beyond the normal ie homemade cakes at breakfast, lending towels for beach etc etc. The staff are very helpful.

Only one drawback is there are no TVs in the rooms but this is not really something that is needed in a beach resort hotel.

We've stayed at several hotels in this resort, some starred higher but this was the best for friendly & helpful staff who really made you welcome. We hired bikes & they told us the best routes to cycle. I would also like to say that the buffet breakfast was as good as many 5 star hotels, replenished all the time. We had a lovely time & will return.
