We stayed at this hotel 3rd-10th Oct. After reading the reviews, we went with an open mind and personally I was worrying in case I didn't enjoy the food (I'm quite a picky eater).
We arrived there in the late afternoon to a warm welcome. Our room was decent, quite small, but not tiny like some reviewers were making out. The bathroom (which I'm always funny about) was in great condition and we had a beautiful view of the sea which I took many photos of.
The food actually turned out to be good. My other half was unimpressed with the massive amounts of pork on offer, but there were always alternatives, including delicious fish. I wasn't happy with the breakfast after the first few mornings, as I'm a weetabix and brown bread kinda girl haha but if you like beans sausages crossants and the like then you will be fine. The all inclusive drinks were not as nice, I only really enjoyed the hot drinks and the white wine. There was a nice man who worked on most meals who always had a smile on his face.
We didn't go in the pool so can't comment on that, but I loved the old fashioned feel of the hotel, ie, statues, portraits and paintings.
The cleaners were not too friendly and I found one to be more than rude (we are sure she was cussing in spanish) when she refused to change our sheets. However this was sorted out quickly after explaining the situation to reception.
Loved the fact that the beach was like 10 seconds away! It was nice and peaceful, not too busy and just a gorgeous place to be when the sun was blazing.
The owners of the local shops were mostly pleasant and welcoming. We found lots of decent shops on the road leading from malgrat to santa susanna and came home with a few bargains after bartering with the staff.
My only problem was the trains at night. They were very noisy and I found it hard to sleep but I doubt it would be a problem for most people. On the plus side, it took 90 mins to get into barcelona on the train and we paid only 17euros return for the both of us (the cashier even let us off by a euro to save us having to break into notes). the other areas near to malgrat are also lovely for sightseeing.
Ignore the moaners and go to this hotel. Considering how cheap it was, it was a great place to stay. We plan to visit Sorra D'or again next year.
