First impressions were above expectations, clean, modern - more modern than the pictures depict. The receptionist was very friendly and knowledgeable. We stayed in the hotel (not self catering apartments) on a B&B basis. Lovely room on the 5th floor over the pool with views of sea and mountains. We had read that there were no kettles in the room so brought our own. The catering staff were excellent we were permitted to borrow cups for our room. I have a dairy allergy and although they did not provide Soya milk at breakfast they did allow me to buy some and keep it a fridge that I could access myself. Breakfast was a varying continental buffet with hot and cold items, usually egg, chorizo and beans, cereal, pastries, cold meats and cheese. On Sunday they had Cava, Churros and hot chocolate! We had to pay extra to use the safe otherwise no hidden costs - free air con.
The resort itself was frequented mostly by locals evenings and weekends - a really good sign, nothing like Tossa or Lloret - no tacky English bars. The town of Blanes was good for shopping. Transport was good, we got the bus to Girona one day and the train to Barcelona for a day trip. We also spent a day at Water World which was excellent. The beach and sea were perfect. Lots of restaurants and tapas bars, lovely Cava.
