We spent a week at El Templo del Sol last summer (2013) and had a very satisfying stay there. We rented one of the small cottages (which are small mobile units set up in little neighborhoods), which was sufficient, but significantly less than luxurious. Indeed, as noted in other reviews, the office staff was less the gregarious, but they did help us get through the holiday routine with little to no Spanish.
The beach truly is breathtaking, and we rather enjoyed watching the trains whoosh by on the far end of the beach. But I would say the crowning jewel of the place is the pool complex - a series of three pools, each of which cascade into the next with long sloping gradients perfect for lounging in the shallow water. Amazing!
About two hours south of Barcelona, we didn't find the surrounding region to be particularly inspiring, though truthfully, we didn't look very hard! The pizzeria and and market on the grounds met most of our needs for food and drink, and hour long walks on the beach and hanging at the pool provided enough entertainment for us! Nice place.More
