“Would i return in a word NO”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Arrived very late at night took ages to get checked in, I had requested a sea view on entering our room we had no sea view and looked out into apartments. Asked at reception the next day to be moved still waiting. Staff in the bar and restaurant were the only good thing about this Hotel. The food was very average. The pool is on the roof there is no tables or chairs, no toilets and no where to get a drink. The resort is really not for anyone under 60 as there is absolutely nothing to do.

We arrived at the Pimar late afternoon & check in was quick & efficent & a nice friendly receptionist. We got a seaview room on the 5th floor, result!! The room was fine a little on the small side & the bathroom was tiny, I couldn't lay in the bath it was that small but we made do as you do. The hotel itself is spotlessly clean & the staff are all friendly & helpful which is a added bonus. We stayed half board but after 9 days the food does get a bit repetitive I think as the hotel is small it does not cater like a bigger hotel would so we did eat out a couple of times which made a nice change, also you get a set time for dinner another thing we did not like but one has to make do. The drinks are reasonable for a hotel which is good. We only went up on the roof pool once & did not like it, it's very poor & needs updating & not a pretty site, we only looked to be nosey as we like the beach & it's right on the doorstep cross the road & your there, lovely, so all in all a great stay. Once last thing was we had to check out at 5.30am as was getting picked up early & the night receptionist (a man I hadn't seen before) was really rude, we gave the paperwork back to get our safe deposit back & he gave us our 10 Euro's, not one word, I asked him to throw the slip away & he wouldn't, didn't even say did you have a nice stay, plesant journey, somewhat rude I thought thank god the rest of the staff weren't like that!!

This is my 2nd stay in the Pi Mar, But my partner has stayed here lots of times before. I did write a review a year ago saying what a great stay we had but this year there was a few things that's made our stay less enjoyable.
Firstly yes this hotel is still lovely and the view from this hotel is stunning. The staff are very friendly.
When we arrived we was pleased to be given a sea view room but we had requested this months in advance but we only had a shower. I like to have a bath so just having the shower was slightly annoying.
Our room keys constantly stopped working. I know that mobile devices do disable the keys and we made sure that ours were kept well away from them but the keys still stopped working. This was so annoying. Happened to one of the two keys at least once a day.
Our air conditioning unit made lots of loud noises and we did complain about this and we was told someone would be up to sort this for us. But in the 10 days nobody came we had to just deal with the noise.
We paid the 7 euros each for a days use of the sauna and indoor pool area and we wasn't able to get in there till about 5pm as every time we went to use the facilities there was children playing in there with inflatable toys. Not what you want in a relaxing spa area.
The hotel is spotless and the staff are really nice but these things let the hotel down this year as to the point we are now considering staying in another hotel. Which has saddened us.

Went for an early week away. Chose Costa Brava as the flights and prices were cheapest. We knew it was going to be fairly low key and didn't want to stay in a brash resort like Lloret.
The hotel was lovely. Spotless, good food and we were lucky to have a sea view room, albeit fairly small. The rooms at the back had no view at all.
As mentioned the resort attracts Eastern European an Spanish guests which is good in one way as you don't have to put up with lager louts! The disco was pretty much Spanish.
However Blanes was described as " lovely" with plenty of bars an a couple of clubs. What it fails to say is nothing opens til later in Summer. There was absolutely nothing going on. To make matters worse the weathe was cloudy and the wind was bitterly cold. Sunbathing was out of the question.
Even if the weather had been good there was nothing to do at night so unless you went into Lloret you had a choice of 2 bars!
To sum up, nice hotel. Dull resort.

Room Tip: Defintitely request a sea view. Awful at the back.

just had a week in this hotel room was clean bright and comfortable. maid service was excellent we had a sea view which was fabulous. the food was great eggs and omlettes cooked to order cappucino coffe machine staff unobtrusive and clear away with none of the clashing and banging you find in larger hotels. wine in restaurant eight euros whats not to like. evening meal three types of meat and one fish cooked to order again .the welsh couple complaining about everything were first at the table each meal if you want english you should go to blackpool or benidorm. i have stayed at four star hotels which could not compete with this. i rarely stay half board but would recomend this to anyone .didnt stay for entertainment much but it is still early season. no complaints whatsoever

Room Tip: sea view room great but on seafront so a little traffic noise but worth it for view and sun on balco...

Went here for our 25th wedding anniversary and the last minute change to this hotel was well worth it. Breakfast buffet was spot on . And you could have watch you liked . The area was close to the local town and opposite the beach. Taxi to train for day trips to Barcelona were very good value. The hotel staff were friendly from the cleaning team to management. Would definitely go again. Booked with travel republic who were very good.

Popped over to Blanes for a short break ..chose the hotel because it was not only on the beach ...but had an indoor spa facility just in case of the weather. Fantastic spot. On the beach, spa and hotel immaculately clean and the staff could not have been more willing to please. Sadly it is the end of their season next week, but we will return in the spring....definately!!!
