I should admit that this hotel is certainly not 4 star! How they sell it as a 4 star hotel is a mystery to me! I'd say that it looks like a dorm or a cheap hostel, maximum 2 and half stars. The inventory, furniture, carpets - everything is completely worn off, old, and needs renovation.
The room was quite dirty, the bathroom stinked and I couldn't use the sink to wash my cloths, since it was dirty and unhygienic. The rooms were "cleaned" everyday: they changed the towels, but we weren't sure, if the towels were hygienic enough to be used!
The balcony door was broken and we couldn't lock the room, but the reception was very flexible and immediately sent us a technican to fix it.
Our room was located in front of some heating station, which was buzzing all the time, so we never really opened the window because it was unpleasant to hear it.
The walls are very thin and you can hear every word said in the neighbouring room.
The restaurant was great and the food was delicious! We REALLY enjoyed the food, there was a huge variety of different fish, seafood, some backery. The staff was also very nice and pleasant. A little inconvenient timing: breakfast 8 - 10 am, lunch 13 - 14:15 pm, and dinner from 20:30 - 21:15. You can have all inclusive during lunch, but you have to pay extra for drinks during lunch and dinner.
The hotel has 3 swimming pools: one in front of the hotel, mostly used by kids, the other one is in the basement with the warm water, and the small one on the roof. Everything quite worn off and unattractive.
There are some activities and animations, for example you can do yoga, aerobic, even zumba dance. In the evenings it is quiet, no disco, unlike in the other hotels. I'd say it is the most quiet hotel in Malgrat.
In front of the hotel there is a supermarket.
The beach is about 5-7 minutes walk from the hotel, across the railway ( there is an underground crossing).
The only things I liked about the hotel is food and friendly nice staff, and I certainly feel terribly sorry for wasting so much money for the value this hotel certainly doesn't have!!!
