    A bit of a smoking parlor feel, darker lit hallways and sitting areas.

    Great breakfast, nice pool with “beach” entrance , fun for the kids, toddlers. Non smoking on most of the grounds.

    Food at the bar by the swimming-pool is poor in quality and presentation. Not the best place to relax by the swimming-pool due to the presence of kinds playing all the time. As an hotel guest been charged for beds and shades at the beach is not very nice (yes there is a discount, but at this level of hotel it should be free of use). Hotel charges for baby cod. Room walls are not sound proof from next room noise.

    Great Swimming-pool, specially for kids. Good beach 3 minutes walking from hotel. Good bed Quality and size. Nice and well maintained building. Friendly staff. Very good breakfast buffet.

    Some staff members could be a bit nicer. It is a little bit outdated. I stayed in a junior suite that was actually a large room with a sofa... I think the hotel got to a point that needs to be refurbished.

    I thought the staff were not particularly welcoming and friendly. I think the hotel lacks atmosphere. No dim lighting at night, music, or fresh flowers at the front desk. It is filled with a lot of chairs and tables in the foyer and bar area however feels like an empty shell.

    The staff was unfriendly, spoke minimal english and was not helpful at all. For e.x. the ac in our room was not working properly it took hours for them to figure out what to do, sent maintenance team for one hour while baby was sleeping, not even any kind of incentive like here is a box of chocolates for spending furst day all your afternoon dealing with this. Many more instances like this.

    Paying for a sunbed and umbrella on the beach. The limited beach restaurant menu. Great beach but shelved steeply! The children's menu for early supper. Dinner was advertised from 8pm. Never available before 8.30. Too late for children.

    Brilliant for a family holiday. Took daughter, son in law and 2 little ones. Perfect. Great pool areas, good beach.

    The sign posting on our journey from Els masos de Pals could have been better.

    We liked it all. The position of the hotel was good with nice walks along the beach. Room a good size and had everything we needed.. Food was very good. Variety good and well cooked. Staff were very nice, polite and helpful. We thought the hotel was on a par with the Parador hotels which we usually visit.

    • Leisure trip
    • Family with older children

    The hotel was not right on the beach so you had to walk across a road and through another complex to access the beach. Once at the hotel beach area, the hotel charged extra to sit on one of the hotel lounge chairs, which left a bad impression. It is advertised as a 5 star resort and although it is very nice, I would compare it to a Marriot hotel in the US. Nice, but not a 5-star experience.

    The resort was very nice on beautiful grounds next to a golf course. The resort had a very nice pool area and the staff organized activities for both young and older children on a daily basis. The rooms were nice and very clean with lots of closet space and large bathrooms.

    Except for breakfast which was ok, food was not great at all. You would have expect to find much better food for a hotel of this category in a region with such a great culinary reputation.

    The indoor workout facility was not good. The one machine they had did not work, there were no free weights. They could use to update the workout area.

    The front desk staff were helpful and friendly. They spoke English too which was a huge bonus. Also, the restaurant staff was friendly, the food was excellent.
