“Perfect location”
Reviewed 30 May 2012

Room 237 forward facing, corner room, overlooking courtyard with balcony and partial sea view. Room 238 (friends room) has same view but larger balcony.

This was our second stay at the Coral Platja and slightly better than the first one. This time round as on the first visit we were on a coach tour.

The hotel is charming, clean and nicely decorated. Steps away from the promenade and beach, though you take your life in your hands with the cyclists racing along. A pleasant fifteen minutes stroll from the town centre and a little longer to the end of the promenade at St Margarite.

The cleaning staff are very good and pleasant, changing linen and towels daily and keeping rooms spotlessly clean.
A small fridge is supplied for any drinks you want to keep cool, however be warned when you leave the room and take the key card from the slot this will switch off all electrics to the room including the fridge and you return to a pool of water and warm drinks. You could try asking for a second keycard to leave in the slot, though I doubt you would get one. A Tesco/Sainsburys card etc doesn't work (we tried it). The air-conditioning is not efficient and was only just 'working'.

As part of the tour we were on a half board 'buffet' meal plan which was perfectly adequate with something to suit most palettes. We were allocated our own table on arrival and this was reserved by our travel company with a 'reserved card' so no problem searching for a table.

The restaurant staff were efficient, bringing out fresh food as and when required but oh dear what a dour lot they were. The bar staff were even worse, I don't think we saw a smile all week except from one young chap. The female bar person was extremely 'frosty' and couldn't raise a smile or polite word for anyone. As we were entitled to certain free drinks 8-10pm on our package they seemed to think us rather inferior and refused us waiter service so had to go to the bar each time to obtain our drinks.

We had an issue with the fridge in our room which failed totally. I asked twice for it to be attended to but when I chased this up each one on reception denied knowledge of the complaint. I asked our driver/tour guide to help and within half an hour the fridge was replaced, he told them that 'manyana' was not an option.....

This is a lovely hotel in a fantastic location let down only by it's appallingly unfriendly, dour and rude staff.

Room Tip: Rooms 237/238 good partial sea view and set back from promenade so quieter. Have had full sea view a...

We stayed here from 11th-18th April with a coach trip.Our room(345) was very nice,clean & clean towels every day.The reception staff were fine & so was the bar staff.price at the bar were reasonable.
The bad bit was the dinning room.All the meals were buffet style & I must say there was plenty on it,although very repetative & the hot food was very often cold.Unfortunately two French coaches arrived a couple of days after us & then it was a free for all.The French were very rude & pushed in while we were queueing.This was the dinning room manager`s fault for letting everybody in at the same time.The female manager was extremely rude to us & said we should sit at the same tables the night we arrived,although she had put our names on the tables herself!On the last day the breakfast was stale bread,cheese & ham that had obviously been put out the night before & just as we were leaving the dinning room the cooked breakfast came out in time for the French.What a shame that the dinning room experience ruined our stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 345 which was very quiet.

I just spent a few days on the Costa Brava.
We have stayed at the Coral Hotel in Roses.
The hotel's location is perfect, right in front of the beach. We have had many sunny days. It was great, the people and the people are welcoming and friendly, the hotel has a special charm, no doubt return to the hotel Coral Platja!! Strongly recommended!

My wife and I spent Christmas here. Loved every minute. Weather lovely. Rooms clean and spacious. Staff efficient. Entertainment good with a latin flavour. If you want " Roll out the Barrel" then go to Blackpool. Language a challenge but trying to speak Spanish in is fun and appreciated. It is Spain after all. We'd love to go back but choose your dates carefully. In "winter" the population is 20,000, in "summer" 120,000.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view and balcony. Costs more but worth it.

We have just visited the Costa Brava (Roses) on 10th September 2011 From Gerona Airport to Roses we took the transfers by bus,train,bus was less than 2 hours which cost us 20 euros, which was good money spent. We Stayed at the hotel Prestige Coral Platja seafront that was good room and clean, but had ants which was not good some rooms had no Balconies. Food in general term was Poor and was not great selection to customers. Definitely We will not stay at this hotel again, just to say that Reception staff was not helpful to customers favouring the German and French More as first priority customers to the hotel.

Receptionist staff: Very very unfriendly. Some of them can barely say two words in English, they don't understand anything but pretend like they speak English. When there is something out of normal situations they don't like to help or they are very rude. We booked double room, but it was not specified what bed. But when we came there were twin beds. I went to reception and lady was very rude, she argued with me, and then sad like ok we will put beds together. I mean, she could immediately says that in friendly way.

Food: Breakfast every day the same, and if it happens that you like only one or two things you have to eat it every morning. I found food little bit different, marmalade, scrambled eggs taste weird. Dinner is very bad. Food is very basic prepared. Everything is just fried and taste like bad fast food.

Location: Location is excellent. The hotel is on the beach and very near to city center, so you have it all.

Rooms: Rooms are ok, very clean. Balcony at the side views are very spacious. There is air condition and tv.

Other: Other staff apart from reception is very friendly, wi-fi is free in hotel lobby, swimming pool is very small and on back of the building.

We stayed in this hotel as part of a trip. The food was very good, quite a large selection on a buffet and the fish & meat were as tasty and tender as you could get. Our room was a good size but the air conditioning inadequate for it, never got below 80 at night. my fathers room was miniature, the window looked into a 6' square chimney. He could not see the sky let alone the sea. Most off the staff however border on the rude. We were on a drinks included deal and as soon as they saw your slip for this drinks were banged down on the bar. A smile is unknown to most of them. The good and bad cancelled out each other so you can say the hotel is poor to average only.
