Too easy to a get Four Star Rating?

Isn't it really easy for hotels in Salou - and indeed Catalonia generally, to get a four star rating? Most are in truth just three stars.

Four Stars would have to indicate a bit of quality.

I suppose it depends on who's rating you refer to. Estival and Gran Hacienda in La Pineda are truly 4 star, The Jaime I is only a 3 star and IMO should be a 4 star. The 3 star Molinos is just that.

You could say that about hotels in other parts of Spain and other countries too even the UK, but you are right, some which are four star are not always what they are cracked up to be like Salou Park, but the H10 hotels, Sol hotel, PortAventura hotels are all four stars they certainly range in quality and may not meet everyones standard, but in my opinion they are all four star standard.

the problem with hotel ratings is that the method of rating them is different in every country, and even in different regions of spain.

the * rating does not cover quality of food, nor attitude of staff, but does cover such things as facilities in the hotel and size of rooms.

this link may give you some more information on how ratings work
