Clean room and public areas and the staff were friendly and courteous. Great pool area which the groundsman works hard to keep spotless. Buffet dinner was awful - the veg and even some salad was out of tins. Meat and fish overcooked and indigestible. Next door is a lovely restaurant with a €14 evening menu. Breakfast was basic but with... More

The rooms are old as well. The staff is friendly and will help where they can. We were given a sea view room without asking, which... More

We got a special deal for this hotel so taking that into account we were quite forgiving of things that we otherwise would have complained about.

We were disappointed to find very little refurbishment had been done. The hotel seems to be stuck in a timewarp from the 60's/70's. The whole outside of the hotel badly... More

Nice Hotel and what I feel was good value for money. The staff, in particularly the front office were very friendly and helpful! Would recommend the hotel to friends and family! Platja d'aro is a smallish town but great location for a relaxing beach holiday
