This hotel is different to the many chain hotels. It is down a small road and parking is further away. It is located very close to the beach. It is unusual and prettily decorated with a lovely beach/seaside theme in the public areas. The breakfast was excellent with a reasonable selection and wonderful hot, freshly baked bread. Our room was... More

Friendly hotel just the right size if you don't like huge hotels. Staff lovely really friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere. Rooms clean and comfortable with balcony overlooking the courtyard. Breakfasts good plenty of choice leisurely feel. Pool area small but big enough no need to compete for sunbeds!

The hotel is great. They have very helpful staff. Their breakfast section is pretty large for a hotel. If you are a beach lover this is a great location. They don't have a view of the beach just a FYI. Parking is a bit of a bother for those who are driving, but they have off site private garges for... More

Platja d'Aro is fab, and Els Pins was so central & 30 seconds from beach. Breakfast 8-11.30, never ate lunch most days. Just what we needed,... More

Left out the third Location! as it is just 10 meters from the sea and no great views. This is a great hotel in a perfect spot in Platja d'Aro. 5 to 10 mins walk from all the best restaurants and shopping areas. The hotel staff are lovely and helpful. Breakfast is very good from 8.00 to 11.30. Make your... More

It is always refreshing to find a place better than what you had hoped for. Immaculately clean and a very fresh vibe exudes from this hotel and its staff. The location is perfect though GPS positions it incorrectly, just steps from the sea. Off site parking is slightly problematic, but the breakfast is great. Could spend several days at this... More

Just behind the first line, it is practically on the paseo maritimo and the beach.The hotel has a tasteful and light interior, with a small pool area and and with inviting common spaces. A fantastic good breakfast, with good quality more likely to find at a 4 star hotel. Even served cava in an ice bucket! The rooms are clean,... More

Literally 30sec from the beach. My morning jogs along the beachfront were enjoyable - all joggers and dogs were friendly. The breakfast was simple but food was great. Staff was amazingly friendly and supportive. Friend of mine lost her wallet twice… 1st time the hotel staff picked it up and handed us back (she left the wallet "hidden" in her... More

A really lovely hotel a minutes walk from the beach. The hotel is very clean and the staff so friendly and helpful. The pool area is small but never too busy and no towels left on sun beds when not being used. We always managed to get a space by the pool no matter what time of day. The rooms... More
