“Good value for money.”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

We went on a shearings tour, and after reading the bad reports online about the hotel,we were surprised to find out it was ok. Its up a hill with about 20 steps to front of hotel and reception. There is a ramp too,further up the hill. Reception staff are friendly and happy to help. We checked in quick,but the room wasnt available until 1, but there is a room for cases. There are 2 bars one in the reception area,and a another in the disco/family/entertainment area. There is a large outside pool,very cold,and a small pool for kids. Its also a sporty hotel, covering squash,gym,indoor pool (pool cap required),tennis,boxing and martial arts,but dont think that makes it busy or noisy because its seperate and to the back of hotel. We did half board,food is your average holiday food. Covers most foods to cater for all. The food was nothing special,but was fine. We also had water and wine included with dinner. Rooms were basic, but clean. We had room 333 which looked over the pool,and you can see the sea in the distance. Not too far to walk to shops,bars and the beach. Nice place to visit Lloret de mar,and easy to get round. Worth a visit,and hotel is great valve.

Second time at this hotel, the food has improved but I would have given them 1 out of ten last time, this time it was probably 3 or four out of 10. Pool area still exceptional but the entertainment at night was all focussed on the kids. Probably because we went a little earlier this year. The eastern european contingent at this hotel, however, were bloody ignorant. Not much the hotel can do about this but annoying nonetheless. Staff are pretty decent, with two exceptions, the main receptionist has had his personality removed and the chef doing the on display cooking is as miserable a human as I have ever encountered. If you hate your job that much, get another one. Still a decent hotel at a really good price. Bar Christina just outside the main entrance is a fabulous place to have some drinks and snacks, too.

Room Tip: Try and get a room over looking the pool and gardens, the higher up the better.

Stayed at this hotel with family 3 adults 5 children ...The rooms are very basic just 2 white sheets on each bed and a small portable tv ..The doors lock with a key instead of the modern card ,we found this on the plus side as one of our children is autistic and has a tendency to let himself out of the more modern door systems ...The pool area is lovely and is just how it looks in the photos.. The play park is worn and damaged in places just painted over and the grass in this area is no more its just dirt ...The hotel in parts has had its day dirty and well used ...The few days we were there there was a problem with the water on one of the days ..The restaurant is under staffed you have to clear the tables yourself to even find somewhere to sit ,you then have to sit eating your meal surrounded by tables full of other peoples leftovers...The food is very Spanish and children are not catered for ..The chef is extremely rude and stands cooking food for the staff, when his time is up even if the food is there and its time for him to Finnish he will not let you have it he puts it under the counter and takes it away for the staff...The guests at this hotel were very rude i don't know if this was because we were English or they were just like this ..We travelled up the coast from Barcelona staying in 4 different hotels compared to the others we stayed in this one was terrible and wouldn't advise anyone to stay here .

Stayed at this hotel with family. Pool great for kids, the hotel needs doing up and rooms etc but they are basic. The food here i wouldnt feed to a dog. Un cooked, sour ice cream, spagetti pasta with rice on top and jacket potato dripping in fat,we walked dining area sat down with our food and walkedstraight back out. In lloret i didnt come across nice places to eat but was so fed up with people constantly staring at us like we were aliens and sitting down at restaurants waiting for service for about 15mins and walking out!! Staff at hotel beyond rude and guests, waiting for lift with a pram as soon as lift door opened ppl from behind rushed to get in there was no way! Noisy teenagers running through corridors at night. Reception staff are crap no running water or toilet flushing one day they didnt care, they have one word answers was pathetic. Bar staff one fat bar man insisted on us moving a mcdonalds cup that was placed on table this was only whilst i was looking for my daughters bottle, i said this but of course this was not good enough he said over and over untill i was rude back and he told me to calm down! Entertainment was spanish and french but we were only english at hotel. Lloret is nice we experienced rudeness at another level so persnally i wouldnt stay here longer than a few nights but no way at this hotel stay away!

Staff nasty food not cooked and rooms basic the only thing good about it is the children's pool we really felt that they don't like us because we are British we won't be going back also during the early hours lots of people were running Down the corridor knocking on people's doors and running away and this was adults. I'm talking about this place is no good if you can't walk as you have to carry your cases up lots of stairs this hotel needs to be renovated and the staff need training on how to be nice to people

Just returned from my hen weekend in lloret de mar.
We chose this hotel as was a good price we booked through travel republic , however i did check some travel agents and all the well known englsh ones dont use this hotel .. So this should say something.
The hotel was very clean but basic our room had nothing in apart from a tv and 4 single beds.
The pool area is lovely and the staff were never rude to us , we went for breakfast one morning and never again dirty tables , no food left , people pushing in but you could get breakfast for 3 euros at the cafe about 1 min walk so we went there.
Hotel was perfect for hen weekend , no other english in hotel but hardly any in lloret de mar.
I woud say this hotel is okay but i woud of been dissapointed if it was my main hols of the year.
I would say its a standard cheap basic clean 2* hotel.

The hotel staff were ignorant to anyone who was from the UK. Whenever we asked them for help we were ignored. The best part was checking out and even then we were barely acknowledged. Never Again going to a hotel with such rude staff.
