perfect location at seafront, 5 min from town center, quite and always cleaned up room, spacious accomodation, well done breakfast buffet extra pay for the small fridge (3EUR/day), reservation for parking didn't work
The view of the sea is breathtaking. Loved the room, very clean and comfortable. We fell asleep to the sound of the waves - a pure delight. Excellent value, with full breakfast included, couldn't ask for a better deal. Location is excellent, beach on one side and a short walk to town sports centre and bus station.
Peace & quite No
Huge room , on the beach. is impossible to find the address if you come with the car because the street is on the beachwalk and there is no way to find it with the GPS. we lost alf an hour to find it goin on the beachwalk by foot until we saw it then we have to find coming in the regular street with car. the make you pay the "rent" of the minibar, wich is empty, just the fridge, they want 5 €.
The hotel has a very good location. The breakfirst was very poor. The hotel is in bad need of repiar and is very negleted a lacks parking
It was out of season so it was very quiet. The staff members were few but very helpful
The receptionist was very efficient, friendly and charming. Room was clean despite the decor being dated. Decor was a bit dated and patio door lock was broken.
The location of the hotel is perfect in Plaja d'Aro. The crew is kind. There is free wifi. The room is clean and the bathroom is confortable.
Smart and clean and on the front with no noise at the time we were there Lack of information about the hotel,or restaurant,no menue dispayed for instance.
Second time here and was ideal for what we wanted, sea view rooms best as this hotel is located right on the beach. Easy walk to lots of shops and restaurants. It could do with a freshen up in general but rooms were very clean.
I have been living in this hotel for 15 times between 1970 and 1985 in our summer school holidays. Every year with my family with two children. We came here because of the nearness to the beach, the friends that came back every year and the extreme good relations to the former owner, Ramon Bertran. I organized many hotel tennis tournaments and everybody wanted to book in when the tennis event went on. We had yearly football games between the guests and the hotel staff. These events were promoted by Mr. Bertran. Finally we were something like a social community. Because of old memories I came back here in 1996 and now. I still like the place and I was very happy to see at least two of the old staff: Isidro and Carlos. Everything was fine and as expected.
great location, includes a nice breakfast the rooms could use some updating
The hotel has an excellent location with short distancde to the beach and the center of Platja d\Aro The hotel is badly maintained and rooms and all other installations are worn. It does not earn 4 star staus
good quality hotel
Proximidade da praia Precisam de melhorar muito a limpeza, principalmente a da louça e talheres. As bebidas do serviço "tudo incluído" são de muito fraca qualidade. O serviço "tudo incluído" fora das horas das refeições era muito fraco. As casas de banho dos quartos precisam de ser renovadas. O chuveiro funciona mal.
Da proximidade com o mar Melhoramento do serviço de quartos, internet wireless e melhores condicoes de Tudo Incluido
Da localização e amabilidade do pessoal de limpeza de quartos Da falta de profissionalismo e amabilidade do pessoal (excepção o de limpeza de quartos), da desorganização do restaurante, da qualidade e apresentação da comida, da falta de controle do barulho durante a noite.
The landscape was fantastic, very clean paths and a lot of pine trees. Swimming pool and hydro-massage are very nice. Send beach is not faraway from the hotel. Location of the hotel is fine. Kitchen facilities should be replaced with the new one. Four star hotel should be able to provide fresh towels each day, rather then every third day. Managers should consider some change for the garage entrance, presently it is not easy to get card reader from the car.
Very good pool area, with sensible regulations and lifeguards offering security and hindering sunbed reservations. Very good standard and cleaning on the room. Very nice design both rooms and area. Very high maintenance The that is served in the outdoor restaurant was of a low quality and very poorly prepared. A restaurant that ou only will eat at once.
I loved the friendly ambiance and the food. No
nice people and very close to the beach tha hardest bed ever...food not too good
We were looked after as if we were family. A family member was taken ill and taken to hospital - the support I received was fantastic. It is all very well rate a hotel when everything is going well - the staff at Hotel Els Pins pulled out all the stops to help when I had a family crisis.
The hotel is very close to the beach.
Travelled as a company of 4... we were given a "family" room for the same price. It had 2 bathrooms and 5 beds and the room itself was really big, unexpectedly big i can say! It also had a split air conditioning system with a seperate setups for each of the room. Hotel has great location (around 50-70 metres to the beach). Hotel was quite both at day and night. One of the bathrooms was too small (it was not that convenient as the result). It was especially uncomfortable for such a person like me, who is nearly 1.9m tall. Another point was TV set - it's too prehistoric, though it is really a minor flaw!
very nice place, good breakfast, swimming pool, location is great, 30 seconds from the beach
Staff were welcoming from the minute you stepped across the threshold. You really felt that you were on holiday, because they made you feel special.
Especially the location, that it was very close to the beach and the possibility to park the car at a garage. The time at breakfast, when time was up we had to go immediately.
perfect self-catering apartment ,with daily buffet breakfast and daily maid service.the living/kitchen and bedroom had open views to pool area, surrounded by trees and also to the rising sun over the horizon
One room cleaning in 10 days is not enough for "3 star" hotel
the food was very good. breakfast was almost the same every morning, but dinner buffet changed constantly. also a very nice swimming pool, in the center of the complex. The staff was friendly. Supermarket was ok, but could be a little cheaper. Quiet environment, even though the center is just 5 minutes walking. Cala del pi was magnificent! Good and quiet Samsung airconditioning in the room, also in restaurant. Half an hour from girona airport = 50 euros taxi. We were 4 friends of 18, but this hotel was excellent, certainly when you go in september and share an appartment of 2-4 people, you get a very good value for your money. We arrived at 9 in the morning and could enter our room immediatly. The only thing we were a bit dissapointed in, is the fact that we didn't get new shampoo and shower gel during our stay. Maybe we should have asked about it, but normally that's not the way it goes.
The restaurant was great with good breakfast and excellent lunch/dinner buffet. The apartment which it was on the ground floor had a lot of humidity and the curtains were very dirty.
It was great to have have a kitchen & patio area unlike a hotel where you do not have these facilities.
Suitable for overnight stop, which meet our requirements, or an extended stay It may be worthwhile looking at your route information,on how to locate hotel,as we did have some difficulty.
if you only look for a place to sleep without any luxury and at a very good price, this is a very good place The walls are very thin and you can hear what's happening at your neighbours. When they are noisy, this become a problem.
location near the beach and coastal walk guests a bit noisy in the large centre courtyard late evening
The location -close to beach and city, kindly service-personel, Parking facilities, noisy guests and no control from staff
Nice hotel at the edge of small but very nice beach. Friendly staff, clean rooms. Food not excellent, but good.
the location supplement of 16 EUR per day for seaview while the hotel is almost empty, only twin beds with seaview, breakfast disgusting (powder fruit juice, sour coffee, artificial meatless sausages,...), noise of room maid slaming doors while doing the housekeeping, a brand new designer shirt of mine disapeared in the room, I was rudely accused of being a liar by hotel staff for claiming this!
I liked the closeness to the beach,the beautiful view and the friendly staff. The rooms are a bit small.
Very clean, close to beach, friendly staff, nice breakfast The way the building was constructed made sound insulation very poor: someone speaking at the other end of a corridor could be heard in our bedroom at the other end.
Rated as 3 stars, but in reality at most 1 star. Breakfast and dinner were only of acceptable quality, but not "good".
Staff very friendly and helpful, Close proximity to Beach, Restaurants and Shopping Beds very uncomfortable. need to remove plastic covers and need new mattresses. Not all rooms have either balcony or roof top terrace. our room was nothing like advertised or photographed
The staff friendly and helpful, all spoke English. Good breakfast. The room was small and basic (also the price). Located on the main street 10 minutes from the beach. 12 Euro additional payment to the parking.
I liked the location of the hotel, the proximity to the beach and the shops. Some nights it was very noisy to late at night due to the bars nearby .
We found the staff to be very helpful and they all spoke Engish , the Breakfast was very good, taking into account the price we paid.The room was basic but we only used it to sleep in so what the heck !.We were within a short walk to the beach and the local shops are great.A bargain break was had by myself and partner . We would be happy to go back again. We did have some rather loud guys on our floor in the early hours but it was stopped very soon after I called reception ( 24 hour manned )
Very friendly staff, close to the beach
free wifi, breakfast, very close to beach and restaurants
The staff, especially the manager, did everything to make our stay enjoyable. Would definitely go there again. No.
The hotel was very well situated for the beach, shops and restaurants. We realley enjoyed the breakfasts. The breakfast has a great choice of food for a 2 star! We've had a wonderful stay in Platja d'Aro (you also find the kindest staff there)its cozy, lovely and clean, great staff they give you a 5 star treatment! TV and air condicioned on the rooms.
A good budget hotel. The staff were very helpful, close proximity to main street and shops
The owner and the stuff would do all their best to make our visit comfortable. Were excellent and very informative with the recommendations what to do and what to see. As the location is very central because of the busy nightlife was a bit noisy, but this is the price you pay for the location...
Big terrace, and clean room
126 euro for a hotel like this is really really disappointing. it's more like a cheap family-run inn than a 3 star hotel. The room's really tiny, but balcony/roof?'s 2 times bigger than it, yet for nothing, coz the view outside is nothing. the bed sheets did not look very clean, though not as dirty as the toilet where they placed a piece of paper to indicate that had been cleaned. couple things are broken in the shower room. Bad isolation, we can hear clearly that the kids jumping and laughing on the stairs. About 15 mn walk to the beach which is disappointing too! it simply doesnt deserve you driving that long to go there. anyway, the Tossa de Mar looks a lot more worthy a visit.
Good value for money, nice pool, close to beach, great breakfast. Not in center of town, rooms are very outdated.
O atendimento dos funcionários que foi demasiadamente atencioso.
Bom atendimento, seguro, boa relaçao qualidade preço, localizaçao nao podia ser melhor. Um pouco velhinho necessidade de reforma mas nao e mau de todo, recomendo!
O hotel temm condições de grande privacidade, segurança, muito tranquilo e muito orientado para a familia. A única questão assinalável prende-se com a dimensão da piscina pois sendo um hotel com tantas familias com crianças pequenas há um grande uso da piscina, que apesar de ter camas e gruarda sois em numero adquado, a piscina poderia ser maior ou haver uma segunda.
Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Fantastic location right on the beach. Good food. Shame our shower was so feeble!
It's position was ideal - right on beach. The outdoor bar and restaurant were good, midday meals, particularly salad lunches, were excellent. The views from the rooftop pool area were amazing, although pool small. The gym equipment was a surprising bonus but didn't adjust for women or smaller people. Reception staff very friendly. No ventilation in bathroom. Breakfast - a) fruit juices tasted like water with a splash of cordial, b)tinned fruit cocktail in syrup every day when soaked dried apricots or prunes would have cost no more and would have been a healthier alternative. Overall, for a 2* hotel this was very good, but as I think the hotel rates were more equivalent to 3* in UK, I would say value was only fair.
Good location and good services for a 2* hotel. There was nothing negative about the hotel itself but there was some noise at night from the some of other guests.
Friendly Staff, Great position, good value. Half Board dinner main course not very appetising
Greatl location; next to the beach, and close to restaurants and shops; parking can be arranged for a daily charge; quiet and clean room; pleasant and efficient reception; good breakfast; good value for the money.
Food was poor.
Location is just on the beach and very convenient to go for a swim or to the restaurants. Found that on the roof a small fitness room and a small pool is available as well. breakfast is OK. 5 min walking distance is a free parking in case that the hotel parking doesn't have places. Be aware to remove your car on Friday's from the free parking. We haven't been told at the hotel and our car was removed by the local police- 100 euro fine! Hotel is clean but not excellent. Over night people comming back from restaurants start making noise and also cleaning street is noisy over the night.
Being on the beach but disappointed that everthing was an addition cost. There where no towels provided at pool side, pool is small but nice on the rooftop. WIFI was impossible to get, there where small hotspots but even by the hotel computers could not access internet.
The Hotel was very clean and nice with helpful staff. The breakfast, lunch and dinner was fresh and delicious. No bad points.
A good small hotel, staff where always to hand and very helpful
