    buffet for evening meal limited choice,not value for money. breakfast was ok,but staff were very slow to replenish the empty servery. we were unfortunately allocated a room near the kitchen area, consequently we had to endure a lot of door banging and general early morning noise.

    pool area was good.

    Miserable staff....no smiley faces both on arrival and in the morning. Room alocated quite dated and shabby ( floor very dusty). Extremely noisy. Arrived to what sounded like stag party. Very noisy drunk people all behind reception, in the bar and later out front.. Had to keep all windows shut noise continued to nearly 2:00 am! Was woken very early (from7:00pm) scraping furniture on floor above.Not relaxing place to have breakfast ( like being in a factory) all crockery and cutlery being thrown into steel containers. Had not even had coffee and all cups had been removed- felt in the way and under pressure to get out of breakfast area.

    Reception area, bar and front of hotel seating. Very chic look. Breakfast food itself very good !

    Reception was outstanding. Waited for me a 01.00 in the night, helped me to find a public transport, no hassle when I had to cancel one night. Breakfast had big choice and quantity of food even now the season was low and there where few guests . The place is one of the closest to the main beach and is easily accessible by car.

    The room is old style 1980s poor miserable tourist to Costa Brava Spain, the clientele we were sitting with at Breakfast seemed to come from the lower echelons of society and the breakfast was diabolical for a Spanish breakfast, I paid the extra 10 euros and we should have gone to a petrol station for a sandwich to get a 100% improvement. Totally Horrid

    There was a balcony so I could sit out in the evening to get some air and the air conditioning was very good.

    Very good price to quality relationship for appartments
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children
    • Apartment (2 Adults + 2 Children)
    • Stayed 3 nights

    The hotel private parking is not very convenient for big cars (ours was VW Multivan - could hardly fit in there) and usually there were no available spaces in the evenings. All street parking spaces around the hotel were always occupied so if you come late be prepared to drive around Estartit for some time looking for a place to park (advice - take the first right turn as you drive from the main entrance and head for the beach, there may be some spaces on that street about 200m away from the hotel).

    Very competitive price for the appartment, we were 4 adults and 2 kids and got an excellent price for 3 day long accomodation. The appartment was basic in terms of comfort but spacious and clean, generally quiet, there was some occasional noise but it was coming from other appartments and not from the street. All the kitchen stuff was there so you can cook your own meals if you wish. The staff was helpful and polite. The available parking on the site was handy
