The hotel is very well situated. It is quite clean. The food is average. That's all from positive. I was really shocked when i came in to our room. It was on 2nd floor and when we asked for a higher location they refused us in very sharp manner. The room is quite old as well as furniture, bathroom, sheets... More

I have just come back from a 5 night holiday at this hotel in Malgrat but unfortunately it has failed to meet some of my basic expectations. The first day we arrived at the hotel the receptionist was far too busy answering phone calls and payed no attention to us. After waiting 15 minutes we were asked to pay a... More

In this hotel you need to pay for everyrhing for wi-fi, hair drayer, safe, call on the spanish number of tourist company. There is a huge line to the restaurant for breakfast and dinner. Unpleasant stuff. Disco is situated in the hotel and it is so noisy that you can not sleep with open balcony. Half of the rooms in... More

Where to start? Firstly, I knew this was a 'budget' hotel, however the standard was significantly lower than hostels and other budget accommodation I've stayed in around the world, including 3rd world countries: -Queues for 15 -20 minutes to enter the dining room for lunch/dinner. -No clean tables available at breakfast time, you had to be ready to pounce as...

Experience: We had a nice trip - we took a lot of tours to other places and otherwise went to the sea which is a 5-minute walk away. It is not a good place for rest as various groups scream or shout either during the day or at night. Teenagers even at lunch or dinner. The hotel is geared for... More

Found loads of grey hair in the swimming pool. Location is good, very close to beach. Bar staff were very nice. Day receptionist lady with short hair was really... More

The rooms were basic, beds, bathroom, TV (only on English channel BBC News) and Air Con which didn't work. OK you only want the room to get your sleep. The restaurant wasn't good, it was self serve buffet style. The food was always cold and recycled from previous meals. I don't think any of the chefs were really chefs. I... More

We stayed here mid-September 2015. The biggest single problem with this hotel is the restaurant. It spoilt an otherwise pleasant stay. The opening times of the restaurant were pretty poor: breakfast 8:00 – 09:45; lunch 13:00 – 14:00; dinner 19:00 – 21:00 Every evening for dinner there were big queues to get into the restaurant even if you turned up...

Just back from ten days and thought it might be useful to pass on what I'd like to have known before booking. Hotel is at the border of Malgrat and Santa Susanna, on the corner of the main road and another fairly busy road. The pool is right in that corner, with just a four foot wall between it and... More
