I just returned from an 11 day stay at the Blaumar in Blanes. It is a nice quiet 4 star hotel with clean rooms & a good buffet for breakfast and dinner. If you are looking for a quiet ,restful ,relaxing hotel - this place fits the bill.
There are a few shortcomings: (1) internet access is limited to the reception area and is not free of charge; it also doesn't work all the time (2) the pool is a bit small and (3) the staff is unwilling to make arrangements for early or late check-outs despite the hotel not being full.
I would also recommend having euros in your possession before you go to Costa Brava so you don't have to change USD into the local currency as the exchange rate was about 10% worse than at my local bank at home.
The beach is very close to the hotel and Blanes is a great little town for shopping, strolling, drinking a variety of Spanish wines & sampling great local fruits and vegetables.
This is NOT a party or night spot. So bring a good book you have been meaning to read.
