Sunway Tara Apartments
Ranked #18 of 25 Speciality Lodging in Sitges
Reviewed 9 August 2012 via mobile

We originally booked the Amapolla apartments but were unhappy there as they were small with no air con. The lovely receptionist in the main hotel moved us here and we paid a little more. We were much happier. Much bigger apartment ( slept 5 ) bigger living space, washing machine, well kept grounds and pool. Sunway offer free bike hire which was a plus. It's only a 5 min walk down to the beach and 15 min walk to the Church.

The accommodation itself was quite good in that for 2 of us we ended up with a large ground floor 2 bed apartment instead of the studio we thought we'd be getting. The pool and green area was nice and private. The location to the beach (3-4 mins walk) and the main centre of Sitges (10 mins walk) were perfect. There was no servicing of sheets and towels which for a full week in hot weather was a disappointment. Furthermore, the single roll of toilet paper was not replaced which I felt was a bit petty. I even met the cleaner of another unit on one day, her arms full with a giant bag of toilet rolls and asked for one (even offered a euro) but no way was I being given one! Had to trek 10 mins to a shop to get some!

The sound proofing wasn't great and on our second last night and early the next morning, I could hear a baby crying upstairs with toys constantly being dropped on the wooden floors creating a really noisy atmosphere. To be honest, as this venue is marketed as a gay friendly resort, I'm not sure if the place was suitable for children or infants. Some of the occupants of other chalets freely walked around naked (to the pool/sunbathing etc) so wonder if this would be suitable for kids. Overall it was pleasant enough but I'm not sure if I'd stay there again if in Sitges. The actual Sunway Playa Golf hotel where you collect the keys looked stunning and not that much more expensive so maybe next time...!

We decided to use Sitges as a base for Barcelona, which is a short and frequent train ride, staying at Taragay Apartments. The apartmenst were self maintain with a washing machine which we desperately needed. Apparently during summer this place 'jumps' but we preferred to relax. Great Price Great location

This complex was advertised as exclusively gay and in the past this has been the case. During the weekend the apartments were occupied by families, some with children.
This is not what you expect. The rooms were clean but are only serviced once a week as was the pool.

My partner and I have stayed here three times in 2007&2008. The apartments are really well equipped so that if you do want to make a snack or cook some food, you have everything you need. Even including a camp little tea service. We like to enjoy a bit of fresh simple food to give a break from the rich restaurant food and here the full size oven does the job. The little TV has CNN so at least you can hear some news in English. The place is well maintained, the pool is checked daily and the cleanliness standards are alway excellent and it appears this ahs continued..

It is a little walk away from the centre of town, but the cheaper rent and the on-site pool compensate this more than adequately. There is no bar on -site but this means you can chill your own drinks to sup by the pool and not pay inflated prices. Each time we have visited there have been friendly guys and we have not felt uncomfortable as a lesbian couple in a predominantly male environment.

The doors banging has always been a problem, mainly because drunk people don't take too much care!

We stayed at this accommodation in July 2010. Great location, large apartment, kitchen fully equipped incl. washing machine (very useful) and ironing incl the ironing stand (extr. usefull for those travelling with limited baggage such as Ryanair as we did). Nice and clean pool at disposal to only 10 apartment in this location.
I recommend to the owner to change the door locking system as the current one needs lots of door-slamming, waking those who do not sleep tightly. Otherwise it is a quiet neighborhood but still close to the center.
