“Huge bed, huge breakfast...”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We stayed 2 nights. Great location. We had a room on the second floor with a private balcony overlooking the beach and dike. It had a huge bed, but tiny shower room which didn't appear too clean because of it's size. The balconies to the rooms next door were separated by a metal fence, which made them less private.
Checking-in took quite a while because of all the administrative things. They must have had problems in the past and that's why they are so strict with paperwork and payment.
Pity that the swimming pool wasn't heated in autumn. It looked inviting though.
Huge breakfast, more like a brunch. The food was good, but the buffet and tables weren't always tidy enough. It's not because things are huge, that they also have an excellent quality.

We were checked in by Eva who speaks English. The room was beautiful and overlooked the ocean. The breakfast buffet one of the best we've had in Spain. Free internet in the lobby. The only downside, and it had nothing to do with the property, was when I needed to send a quick message and kids around 10 years old were on the computers playing games. I kept checking for over an hour and finally asked the guy at the front desk (around 6PM)if there were any other computers I wasn't aware of as I needed to send a quick message that was time sensitive.His response was that the computers were for everyone. I realize this but maybe a time limit?
We do plan to return in May and highly recommend the place

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in october 2012. Opposite the beach ( just across the road ) we had a room at the back. it was very quite , had its own balcony. huge bed and shower (n bath ) . A plus here is that you also get tea and coffee making facitilies which is unusual in europe to get this. Then there is the breakfast - could not believe it - if you cant find it there then it really doesn't exist. everything from chocolate fondue with fresh fruit sticks to spanish style on the british full english, continental breakfast to cava ( yes cava).
We had an issue with the tv the plug at the back wasnt in right , as well as locking ourselves out of the safe in the room - reception were brilliant came straight up and sorted us out with no problem. you can hire beach towels, for these you need to give 15euros each deposit in cash they get changed every day and deposit returned in cash when you are finished with them.
You also get a free welcome drink ( glass of cava) in the 5 floor bar which has a glass balcony to look over the old town which is lit up at night - very nice. we stayed on the 4th floor and didnt hear anything from the bar.
The hotel was within 10min walk from the station and bars and restaurants even closer,
Beds were very comfortable, didnt use the swimming pool ( bit too cold -time of year)
Will be staying here again on our next trip to Sitges.

Room Tip: if you stay on the 4th floor room at the back dont get overlooked by the bar upstairs as the front o...

First of of all we booked the Platjador because of its location, directly on the boulevard. The rooms are not really big but clean and good beds. The bathroom is far to small for a hotel like this. The staff is very friendly and the pool is nice, although it was to old (october). But the best part is their breakfast buffet. My god, i have never seen anything like that. We at like animals and did not need anything for the rest of the day. So much work and love is put in. I would gladly come again.

Me and the hubby stayed here for a week to celebrate my 40th birthday. The hotel was fantastic the room was great the bed was massive. Breakfast is served 8 until 12 and the selection is wonderful never seen more or better. Roof top bar is great and staff are fab. Pool area was not really in use at the time of year but looked great. One of the best hotels I've stayed in. Will be going again

We are a couple with a young child, and stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in late October. We chose the sea view room with a small balcony, and it was a great choice. We were at 4th floor, got plenty of sun, and the view was just magnificent and unbeatable even tho the room and the balcony were small. The breakfast was great with a wide selection of pastries and hot food, and it was also nice to have a welcome drink (glass of cava) at the rooftop bar.
The location is also great that the beach and the church was right there, and the central area of the town was right behind us. We came from Barcelona by train, and it was about 10min nice walk thru the narrow streets of the township.

However, I must mention some downsides. There was a very bad sewerage smell coming from the bathroom drain. We complained to a young guy at the reception, they said they would look at it but didn't. We had to complain to a lady at the reception next day not only about the smell but also the water leak from the bathroom ceiling due to rain. She said the smell happens everywhere not only in this hotel but also in this town when it rains (altho it wasn't raining the previous day so we didn't buy her story). Anyway, she sent a maintenance guy and the leak and the smell were fixed, which was good.
It wasn't pleasant that the cleaning trolly was almost all the time on our narrow hallway, and the hallway carpets have never been vacuumed.
Another thing was that they charge a child (5 years old) 50% of room charge. We slept on the existing bed (twin beds) in the small room, which was normally free of charge for such young children at the hotels that we have ever stayed.

Overall, we enjoyed staying at this hotel, and would recommend to our friends if they can improve some of their service.
