Hotel Don Angel
Ranked #18 of 21 Hotels in Santa Susanna
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Hotel is packed with elderly people. The staff is genuine, honest and pretty friendly. But they lack language skills. Not all staff (even front desk staff) is bi- or trilingual. In my opinion a must for everyone who has job like this.
The pool is ok, nothing too fancy, but well cleaned. Buffet is ok for taste, but is seriously lacking diversity. The room itself was ok. Clean and spacious enough with a nice view.
As for location, it's really what you prefer. It's about a 1 hour train ride to Barcelona city, but the train stops right outside the door. The plusside, it's relatively cheaper then the city center and you can have very romantic walks on the beach across the street.

Have just returned from weeks holiday at Don Angel, overall we had a fab time, we stayed room only which was fine, room comfortable and cleaned daily. Pool was great but on some days couldn't get a sunbed due to usual problem of people reserving them and not using them, kids club could do with having more information as only found out about it day before we left and kids had really good time. Reception staff i found were very unhelpful, was a big language barrier and whatever you asked it always felt as if it was too much trouble. One thing i would say that i have not read in any reviews is how close the train runs to the hotel, one goes past about every 20mins and runs in front of the hotel, there is no promanade as such due to this so you can't have a nice walk along the sea front in the evening and for this reason i would not return to this resort, so if you enjoy a stroll along seafront would check out where the train line runs.

My wife and myself have just returned from 5 nights at the Don Angel. We were a little worried as there were so few reviews but now we know why - there were no other Brits in the place!! It is mainly full of elderly French people - but this is no problem as it meant the hotel was peaceful and relaxing. It is true that in our mid 40's we brought down the average age by a few years!!!

The hotel itself was lovely. Very clean with polite and helpful staff (even though English was not widely spoken). The food was also more continental - with lots of fish on the menu. Like all Full Board or all inclusive it can get a bit repetitive but overall very good.

The swimming pool was marvellous. It was always fairly quiet and even at half term loads of good quality sun beds (the advantage of not having many kids around!!).

Santa Susanna has a nice promenade with stalls set out in the evening. All makes for a nice romantic evening stroll.

The local train station is only 5 minutes walk away and Barcelona is 1 hour 10 minutes away. Really nice journey that winds along the seafront. Cost was about 8 euros each which was very reasonable. We enjoyed Barcelona and opted for the City Bus Tour at 24 Euros each which was well wort it. The cable car was also worth a go with great views of the City.

We booked this really cheap with onthebeach.com and everything went really smoothly. All pick ups were on time and admin great. I had great concerns beforehand but it was all seemless.

So overall - fantastic VFM without a football shirt in sight!! Just very relaxing and ideal for those wanting a quiet break in the sun with easy access to Barcelona.

Room Tip: Pick a room on the West side for views and the sun. Also pick a room on a higher floor.

Decent hotel in good location near sea. Receptionist are not very friendly. Rooms have large beds, but remains very little space around beds and no place to store things for a longer stay. Breakfast and dinner are not very rich, the meat from the grill completely tasteless and rubber. Outside the main season are 90% guests Spanish seniors. I recommend only if it is a very good price.

Do not go to this hotel. My friends and I came back to find our door wide open and our personal things either being stolen or been looked through. It was not a nice experience coming back to our clothes all over the place, personal items missing and being used. The hotel was not very helpful about it and said that there was nothing suspicious. After the 3rd day of it happening we realised the only people that could enter our rooms was the maids and since the hotel managers said that only the maids were entering our room during they day. We had to suspect it was them.
