“Small friendly, a bit outdated hotel in excellent location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

In August Playa de Aro is veeery busy. So, this small hotel is a small oasis in-between tyrannosaurian beachfront hotels. It is just 50 m from the beach but much quieter that the beachfront. Some staff is friendly, some less interested in you. The included breakfast is a bit industrial, not too tasty, especially coffee, juices and cakes. The rooms (at least 3rd and 4th floor) have a nice but restricted view to the sea but at least something. The rooms could have a facelift. Perhaps out of the peak season this hotel is much better.

Room Tip: Take 3rd-4th floor rooms with the seaview

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

We stayed at the hotel for 3 night in july. We didn't have any special expectations and the room was a last minute booking. The room was nice and clean but very small for a 4 person room (think it was meant to be for 2 persons - but a "bunk-bed" had been fitted). The double bed was old and we keept sliding into the middle of the bed...
The included breakfast was disappointing - generally poor quality food. But the staff were very friendly and the location of the hotel was perfect - 50 meters from the beach - but sadly we had a "view" from our balcony to a wall blocking "the view". Some rooms had ocean views...

I only write bad reviews if I really had a big issue while staying in the hotel, but even though the staff was very nice and helpful, I have to say it: the hotel needs to isolate the sounds!!! We were 2 couples staying there for 2 nights, and none of the four were able to sleep due to the noise! the hotel is very close to a bar or some kind of place that has people coming in and out during the whole night and besides that whenever someone walks in the floor above you you hear all the steps...and to complete the picture there was so kind of construction so from 7:30 am you'd hear hammering, and of course you don't wanna get up that early on weekends....
The good things are: 1. the location: is very close to the beautiful beach, and 2. the staff is great...so if you can sleep with (A LOT) of noise just go there...but if you are as the four of us you won't be able to enjoy it...

Room Tip: ask for rooms on the top and away from the street

Close to the beach, you just need an Hotel to sleep in? Well, this is it. Don't expect more!
Check out at 11? A must or someone will be knocking at your door...btw bring your own shampoo
