Alva Park Costa Brava
Ranked #20 of 124 Hotels in Lloret de Mar
Reviewed September 19, 2005

I booked to stay in Alva follwing its inclusion in two luxury travel company brochures. Despite the location on the edge of Lloret, I had assumed that the "resort" in the hotel's title would mean that there would be some insulation from the worst of Lloret! I was wrong!

The Alva Park resort and Spa has been developed as a first class hotel, the redecoration and styling of the hotel has been done to the highest standards. What is bizzare is that it is just a single block in an extremely built-up area of Lloret, and is surrounded by appartment blocks which are closer to two than five star! At approx 500 Euros for one of their standard rooms - this is just not appropriate!

They charge extra for a sea view, which once paid for you lear that the sea is actually just seen through a gap between the (tatty) apartment buildings.

The pool has been beautifully designed - It is just a shame that you are looked in on by all the neighbouring appartment buildings.

The children's club looked beautiful - and it was one of the reasons that we booked. It was just a shame that we were not allowed to take our son in to enjoy it!

Tha babysitter provided by the hotel looked closer to our son's age than our own - Not good for the 18 Euros and hour!

The hotel was virtually deserted when we stayed, and it wasn't low season. Maybe others had realised how over priced it was for such a grotty neighbourhood!

If the hotel had been set in grounds it might have been worth the price, but given Lloret is one of the tackiest resorts in Europe it is not!
