“It is what it is!”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

just got back from the castella this morning. me and a friend went for a week half bored. initial thoughts of the hotel are thats its extremely difficult to find. transfers drop you off on the main road and dont tell u where to go! so ur hunting around for ages trying to find it! once in, very basic. but i must state it is very clean, i cannot fault them on that! food wise.. well, breakfast is pratically bread roll, ham and cheese. dinner, chips anyone?! u get some salad then a choice of 3 other things which includes chips every night!. basic food. not nice at all. noise is horrific!! trying to get sleep at night is just not going to happen. specially if your on the front. there is a apartment complex facing with people shouting at silly times in the morning! walls are paper thin as well!! its 5 minute walk to the beach, just a straight road. the night life is like 10 minutes and getting to no the area is required as u have to go down lots of random streets to get there!! the pool, we quite liked it as it was quiet and we could just mess around in the pool without upsetting others! its very over looked though by surrounding buildings. dont be expecting a nice view because each way u look there is an ugly wall as high as the hotel. very basic, friendlyish staff. had one problem with the day we were due to check out, we was never told the check out time and at 10:40 we had a knock saying we had till 11 to get out the room. but lads we knew who left a few days before had a check out of 12! we also paid for 7 days food and they tried to say we couldnt have dinner although our flight wasnt till midnight! no where to store your bags either so trust is needed as u have to leave them in the lobby!! overall, not great but if u just wanna go for the night life and sleep with be alcohol induced, you'll be fine!! NO ENGLISH THO, full of spanish, french and german =] you'll be lucky if u find any english in lloret!

Room Tip: pool side rooms dont have a balcony and are smaller but are quieter at night. rooms on the front are...

We had stayed in this hotel for our summer vacation, for 9 nights in July. The hotel was generally nice, it was very clean (considering the toilet in the room, the hall for eating etc..), except the public toilet that was in the hall of the hotel (I had used that once, and never come back again, because it had smelled bad).
The sheets were not changed daily, only once during the 10 days, and just because we ask the maid to do so. But the towels were changed daily, and the room (generally) was cleaned daily too. So, except for the sheets we haven't any other objections. :)
The food was also great, we had chose breakfast and dinner - both were ok. Breakfast was same almost every day (but I think that is the same in every hotel from this rang, I probably will add eggs plus on the menu), it was contained by salami, cheese, bread (2-3 types) marmalade, corn flakes, milk, coffee(don't even think on trying - even it's not up to my taste), and the dinner was variable almost every night - on the menu: fish (often with very much garlic), red and chicken meat, meat balls, fries, different salads, ice cream etc.. It was very tasty anyway, and we're recommending you too choose dinner too.
At the time period we were there, there were such an idio*es German boys that were making sooo huge noise, that it was impossible to fall asleep, but there is also a nice receptionist in the night shift that had been deal with them nice too :)
We had been mocking the manager (or the boos, I'm not sure) of the hotel a little :D because he was precise like "Switz clock " with the closing time of the restaurant, and he was, like having 4 eyes on his head, looking around if someone is already full and he was hoping he/she would NOT go into the column with food again! :D Also, there was one another girl who had done the same :) But never mind, they were funny anyway, honestly they were making our day! :)
There is not parking, but we didn't needed because we went with bus.
Summa summarum - we recommend this hotel, as a nice place to stay into, with nice food, nice employees, that are always there if you need them.
