“Excellent stay in the Platjador”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

My husband & I stayed at the Platjador 22nd-27th February. We could not praise the Platjador enough.......Staff at reception could not have been friendlier or more helpful - as were the rest of the staff throughout the hotel. . Our room was perfect ( we had booked a superior room ) It had a balcony overlooking the sea, which had sunshine all day. The decor was bright & cheery and it was kept spotlessly clean. Breakfast in the morning had every conceivable type of food.and went on until 12.00 ( so one could have a 'lie-in'!). The restaurant at night had a varied menu, with special prices for residents. Also, in the roof-top bar ( inside & outside seating) one could have free afternoon tea at 5.00, if wished. In the lobby there are 2 computers , with free use for residenfs. Wifi connection is also free. The situation of the hotel is ideal, being on the promenade and just around the corner from the town with its picturesque narrow streets. We would recommend the hotel to everybody and would certainly return there again

Room Tip: We had Room 402, which was excellent. I cannot comment on others

Perfect location across from the beach and right next to the center of town. Nice rooms: clean, modern, and a comfortable bed. Great rooftop lounge/bar - interior and exterior - with amazing views of the ocean. Small heated pool with loung beds out back. Friendly staff and a great breakfast.

I am just about to book out of this hotel and thought it would be best to review it now before I forget.
First and foremost is location , I will post photos of the view but it's on the seafront facing the beach ! What more could you ask for ?
We have room 303 which is smack bang in the middle of the hotel with a sea view terrace and its fabulous .

We are in low season so I could imagine having the lift outside the door might be annoying in the busy periods.
The hotel is clean , professionally run and has everything you want from a small hotel .
The rooms are adequate with kettle , Tv and and DVD and are more than suitable for a couple.

On the 5th floor is a bar that has views to die for and it's so cheap I felt guilty for not paying more.

On the 1st floor is access to the pool area .. It's not really a swimming pool but a hydro pool with lots of buttons to press and get massaged at every angle , the water is very warm to make up for the lack of sun on the terrace until around 6 pm.

Parking is 15 euro or you can just park in a side street for free which I did ( hope my car is ok)

It's walking distance to the train station and costs just over €7 to get into Barcelona which isn't the fastest route but very scenic. It takes about 30 mins from station to city.

The hotel breakfast has been consistent throughout the week , free cava , wine and brandy was an unusual sight for breakfast but hey it's free.
The buffet has all the usual Brit appeasers with beans , bacon and sausage but mixed with typical Catalan cheeses and cold meats.

Overall it's been 5/5 , if I could fault it I would but as I am writing this on the free wifi and drinking water out of the mini bar at 30 cent !!! It a perfect retro Sitges haven.

Room Tip: It' would be wrong not to choose a sea view 103, 203, etc , etc or they have some terrace rooms...

Our second stay in this lovely hotel.It is just great. The location is right opposite the beach, just feet away and also just a few minutes walk from the shops of the old town. The train station is 10 minutes. The sea-facing rooms have the lovliest view possible as does the rooftop bar and in summer the sun shines on the front all day. The rooms are not huge and the bathrooms quite petite but the amazing power shower makes up for it. There is also excellent lighting above the mirror and a decent hairdryer. Beds- you can have one enormous one or one double and one single ( if you book twin) . Very comfortable indeed. The only thing to criticise is that I would like a drawer or two in the room ( for drawers!) . There is a tidy size safe free of charge. The absolute best thing about this hotel is the staff. The cleaners do a great job even hoovering the balcony daily and are very friendly. The reception staff are terrific, they do anything they can to help with any problems you may have and are great fun too. The same goes for the breakfast team. If you ask for anything they don't have they will try and get it for you if at all possible. They are constantly replenishing right to the end. And finally, the breakfast. The amount of choice is terrific and there is freshly squeezed juice, cava , pastries, and even brandy for your coffee. I have never had a better breakfast at any 5 star hotel nor can I say I have had a better level of service from any hotel staff. The breakfast maitre d' works his socks off too and doesn't just " supervise" ( the afternoon and evening maitre d' specialises in management more than pitching in !) , he was so cheery and friendly and remembered we had asked for pineapple which they didn't have , so remembered the next day. I couldn't praise this hotel more highly if I was the owner, to be honest. We had a meal in the restaurant which was really tasty and a great bargain too. The only other hotel I would consider staying at in Sitges would be the sister hotel Galeon, where we had complimentary afternoon tea ( also reviewed) which is available here too. Little touches like this make these hotels extra special and an absolute delight to stay in

Room Tip: Rooms 203 303 and 403 are middle balcony front facing. Recommend highest floor in winter for maximum...

we've stayed here twice. Both times for the Sitges carnival. The hotel has a great location right on the promenade along the sea front in central Sitges. So the sea-view rooms really do have an excellent lookout. The rooms a little on the small side but to be honest, we didnt care as you dont go to Sitges to stay in your room!
The restaurant downstairs is very good and does a great range of foods and wines for really good prices. They also know exactly what I could and coundlt have when I explained that I couldnt eat Gluten. (Just tell them you are "celiacos" and they get it). The pool area is at the back of the hotel and looks really lovely. Its a small pool but with all sorts of spa jets and jacuzzi style bubble beds. The decking has a few stylish and comfy day beds and loungers.
The hotel also has a roof terrace bar with oudoor area that overlooks the seafront too, which is lovely to sit out and have a cheap bottle of cava after a late lunch.
My only real criticism is its really longwinded when you check in. You have to read and sign four or five different forms and scraps of photocopied paper, none of which seemed particularly important. It takes about 20 minutes so if you arrive at the same time as other people then there can be a wait, when all you want to do is get to the room, dump your bags and head upstairs to the roof terrace for a post-travel welcome drink.
I would very much recommend this hotel for anyone going to Sitges for their first time.

Room Tip: Its worth paying for a sea view room

We had booked to stay here for the last two nights of our trip and after two nights in Barcelona we stopped off in Sitges for lunch on our way to Falset. Unfortunately whilst having lunch our hire car was broken into and all of our luggage stolen from the boot, as our Spanish is not as good as it should be we decided to go to Hotel Platjador for help and the lady on reception that afternoon was very kind and phoned the police for us.

After spending most of the afternoon in the local police station and with a hire car with a broken window we decided to stay at the Platjador that night. The room we were given was not as nice as last year, bit small and smelled of smoke, which when reported was dealt with.An upgrade might have helped us get over the trauma of having all our possesions stolen!

Love the roof terrace and the free glasses of Cava, fantastic breakfast and overall a great place to stay and despite the bad experience it has not put us off Sitges which is otherwise a fantastic place for a few days.

Spent 5 nights recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. The rear facing room with balcony was a good size - modern and very comfortable. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast is served until 12pm and is excellent. Wifi was also very good throughout the hotel.
