We arrived at about 10:30am and couldn't check in until 12 which was fair enough so we were able to store our cases in the luggage room at the hotel which was good. The location of the hotel is quite good, when you come out of the hotel turn right for the beach and left to take you to shops and bars. There is also a bus stop directly outside which does trips to Barcelona and at the end of the road a resort train which will take you to port aventura.
The hotel itself was clean and well maintained. The pool was a bit of a let down as it states there are three pools but they are actually all joined up and receive a couple of hours sun in the afternoon so the water is freezing!! The beaches are lovely though, apart from the very steep steps to get to them, they make up for the pool!!
The room was spotless and was cleaned everyday. The beds were very hard and quite uncomfortable but we could put up with this for the one week we stayed. The bathroom was clean but the shower didn't stay on the wall when using the shower on full. Towards the end of the stay we has lots of ants in the bathroom and bedroom, not nice!!!
The breakfast had a good variety and there is something there for everyone. We did find it a bit of a scrum trying to get a table and also trying to get a hot drink!! I would not recommend the tea unless you use at least three tea bags!!
We didn't find the staff particularly helpful or friendly, we made a conscious effort to greet them and thank them in Spanish but they seemed as though they didn't want to make the time for us and were quite abrupt when asking for help with our transfers.
The resort itself is a little run down and there aren't that many great places to eat especially if you want to try some nice Spanish food!! I would recommend trying the sangria though! Watch out for the dodgy men hanging round the street corners offering you a range of products, from sunglasses to wacky backy!!
Overall we had a good holiday because we made the most out of what was there. I wouldn't recommend this hotel or resort purely because I think there are nicer places to visit for the same price.
