    AMAZING LOCATION, GOOD FOOD, EVERYTHING ELSE IS NOT SO IMPORTANT i spent 7 days in hotel pimar&spa @ blanes with my kids in a family room. unless you have a room with a sea view, dont expect a nice view. most of the balconies and the windows have a view to a narrow inner yard, other balconies, firewalls or walls of neighbour houses. the location is perfect: beachside in front of the hotel, downtown, oldtown, restaurants and shops just a few minutes walking distance. the gym is very small, only 4 gym machines are available and some weights. on the first day, there was no air conditioning and lightning in the gym. on the following days, lightning was ok but 1 of the 2 fans of the air conditioning was still broken. on the afternoon of our 5. day suddenly there was no water in the whole building, we could not use the toilet, there was no tap water, nothing. then they managed to fix it within a few hour, but still... 😑 they charge 5€ per day per person for the use of the inner spa - i think its extremely overprized!!! the outside pool and a little terrasse with 20 sunbeds are located at the rooftop on the 6. floor. the maximum capacity of the pool area is 20 sunbeds. the restaurant offers you a huge variety of dishes. breakfast and dinner buffet are fresh, delicious and yummy. even vegan and vegetarian guests find their favourites. however, about 6 times we had to queue up and wait quite long before the dining room to get in and be seated because there were way more more guests than tables - which was really upsetting. all in all, if you are not too much spoiled, you will like the place.

    The SPA was good but didn't meet our expectations, The room was not cosy and could have been just a bit bigger. And take care that you do not have a room with next door neighbours who talk loud every night.

    Big breakfast buffet, eggs were prepared according to your wishes, the evening meals offered a large variety of food plus fresh fish and meat grilled to your taste. Different meals every day. Personnel very friendly and helpful.

    • Triple Room with Sea View
    • Stayed 7 nights

    Spent seven nights in a mid of September. Half Board and Standard guest room with a sea-view, which costed some extra €25 on booking. Two double beds occupied most of the room, giving not much space for moving around. Bothroom however was spacious. Toiletries and fresh towels renewed every day. Separate “thank you” to the girls cleaning the rooms. Must say that it takes an effort to keep the place tidy and spotless clean, keeping in mind the fact that it’s located on a coast and tons of sand are carried inside with guests from the beach. One of the issues that did bother a few nights was a loud tv working next door, which made me think the walls are not thick enough. On second thought, must add, the noise was not there before our new neighbours moved in. Although I am pretty much sure that our previous neighbours did watch tv every night too, however we never heard them in our room. Vast range of menu choices for both breakfast and dinner. Vegetarians and those who are looking for gluten free menu will be pleased to know that Pi-Mar has enough to offer. And of course, can’t miss the fact that so many write about – hot omelette, pancakes and fried eggs are made in front of guests on breakfast and freshly cooked meat dishes upon dinner. Personnel was very fast with cleaning tables and setting them for next guests, hence there was almost no queue outside. One disadvantage is that the breakfast/dinner room although is big enough, however has too many tables placed close to each other, which in its turn makes you feel sometimes a bit uncomfortable, especially when there is a loud family laughing next to your ear in less than half a meter. Bar with a big seating area on the ground floor, just left to the reception, was packed every night. Not only the hotel’s guests but also others from all over the city were coming over to see a show. Must say that many reviews were mentioning about the shows occurring every night.

    Breakfast was very crowded all the time, there was a queue to get a table. More vegetables would have been nice as well and the coffee and orange juice are of poor quality.

    The rooms with sea view are really nice, just across the street is the beach and it's also very close to the terraces and shops but far enough that it's not noisy. The room was standard with all facilities and clean. Bonus, there is a nice bar/restaurant in the hotel with beachfront terrace.

    There was a music performance or dance evening every night in the hotel's bar and the music was relatively loud, so that one hears it in the room like an echo. It did not disturb me after the entire day of swimming and walking around. But I can imagine that it might be inconvenient for some people.

    The hotel has excellent location next to the beach and good facilities such as spa, pool, super breakfast choice and evening entertainments. It was a lovely stay next to sandy beach and boats to explore Costa Brava, evening dances and performances in the hotel's bar and nice diners/lunches in the nearby restaurants in Blanes. My room was clean and it was cleaned every day. Air-conditioning was perfect, simple and always working. I really enjoyed the view from the balcony and a nice welcoming from the reception upon arrival. Parking in the garage was much better than in the neighboring Hotel Horitz, there were always free parking places and a space to turn around. Overall, it was a good money value and a great experience in Blanes.

The location is great, rooms are clean, hotel lobby is nice. Public pay parking very nearby too. Wifi is pretty decent too. Overall good, but nothing to write home about.

    We requested a sea view but they put us in the back of the hotel with a very small balcony looking onto another street. On the information board on the day we left it was offering an upgrade to sea view rooms for 10 euros .Why were we not offered this on check in as we asked for it... it would have been well worth it ?

    hotel was due to close for winter and it did feel that way in the dining room. Also requested, in advance, same 3 rooms as our group had previously, this was not acknowledged. Also we were also told all sea view rooms would be identical. They in fact were very different in both size and bathroom area (some with bath some not) Also booked in £'s on bookings site but this somehow got confirmed in euros and cost us more than the original price. I have booked many many times with bookings and this has never previously happened.

    have stayed before, the location is perfect overlooking sea. Very good bar area with excellent bar staff.
