“Real Spanish Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Just back from 10 days at Xaloc. the hotel in a really good position in a small cove and a 10 min walk to the main street of Playa d'Aro. The hotel is very spanish with the majority of guests french/german/dutch and spanish. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful especially Reception and bar staff. Every area of the hotel was very clean including the pool although small had comfortable loungers, unlike other hotels we have visited.The food was plentiful at both breakfast and evening meal but more continental than british but very enjoyable. The promenade on the main beach - 5 minutes walk across cover around coastal path - was excellent place to 'people watch' with very clean sand- leading to the marina at the other end. Playa d'aro had an abundance of shops including 'Designer' stores and plenty of restaurants and bars and as this is very spanish some the smaller one giving tapas with your drinks. There were music bars in the evening but didn't visit any to comment. a thoroughly enjoyable holiday

Room Tip: Rooms facing the sea have a balcony and would be quieter but are more expensive

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Just got back from a 4 night stay at the Xaloc. Hotel in an excellent location by the beach and at the quiet end of Platja D'Aro. We found all the staff very helpful and pleasant. A special thanks to Colin (name given to him by the British) who nothing was too much for him.

We had no complaints about the food, good choice on the salad bar every night, a little limited for me on the hot food as I don't eat meat. I didn't go hungry found plenty to eat.

Our room was at the front of the hotel on the second floor. As are stay was short wasn't bothered about a balcony. If we had been there for longer would pay the extra for the fantastic view of the coast . Our room wasn't big but was fine, wasn't planning on spending too much time in the room.

We would use the hotel again if we were to go to that area.

We just returned from Hotel Xaloc, where we spent 18 days. Check in was smooth due to the super receptionist Ander, who was very kind,professional and very helpful during all our stay.
We were given a very nice room and the sea view was great. Our room was very clean and was cleaned every day, towels were changed every day. The hotel is very close to the beach and you can hear the waves while you sit on a balcony. Food was very good, with a variety of choice for everyone. The hotel has a terrace overlooking the sea and I wondered why they did not serve breakfast and dinner outside. They served dinner outside only on Wednesdays. I think the hotel should have better entertainment program , because only on Wednesdays a singer was singing, but it was interesting only to children and to elderly couples.
I would definitively recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the Hotel for 9 days (17/07 until 29/07) and we (me, my wife and son) had a great time during our vacation at Xaloc. Nice location, friendly and helpfull staff (Kalin and co ...) Bar 24 hs open, every 2 days sheets cleaned etc... maybe one little disappointment was the food, but ok, that's maybe relevant...
Thanx for out pleasant vacation en we wil certenly meet again !!!
