This hotel doesn't deserve the negative comments coming from some areas. I stayed there last week with my wife and daughter, and found it to be great.
In fact, I didn't realise until we got there, but I stayed in the same hotel with my wife in 2009.
First the negatives: Yes, there is a bit of a clinical smell at reception, but I didn't notice it else where. True, this is the real Spain, so don't expect English speakers.....In fact no one at all spoke any English, but they did get someone to translate the restaurant menu for us.
Positives: The rooms are clean, and adequate. You're not paying 5 star, so don't expect sumptuous furnishings, but they are good. The spa has very good facilities. The grounds are lovely. The restaurant had good food, reasonably priced, and staff that gave good service.....Which many in Spain do not. Situated about 70km from Barcelona, it is easy to go there for the day, but still have a relaxing holiday away from it all. The coast - Tossa etc are 10 mins away.....Andorra (tax free) is about 3 hours drive.
All in all, a great place for a few days R&R!
