Hotel was in a good location close to bars and not far from the beach. Rooms were basic but u get what u pay for. Maids came in everyday to tidy round and give u clean towels. Didnt bother me but there was quite a lot of noise at the hotel on a night. Hotel is perfect for young people but not so much for families with young children. Id stay here again if i wanted another cheap holiday although can see how its not everyone type of place to stay.

the only good thing I can say about this hotel the room was clean and we had clean towels every day but the room was very small we did get a balcony with a view of an old shed. Most of the guests are German aged about 18-20 they come in at 6 in the morning shouting and knocking on each others doors, the pool area is very small the food is pretty much very poor

Room Tip: I dont think there were any good rooms and we didnt have a lift

Hotel is clean, towels replaced every day... Maids are lovely. We stayed as part of HTID so didnt do much sleeping but the pool area is fine and drinks are good although watered down! Can be noisy at night as its a central hotel but is close 2 bars and beach so its what u expect. Would stay here again!

I have just returned from a weekend staying at this well hotel is not the word, living hell on earth would be more to the point. The staff are completly ignorant and selffish. They never once smiled. You must pay a despoit for your all invlusive ( I know, i thought we had already paid before we arrived). You are only allowed one drink.... The place is full of germans doing nothing but shouting and slabbering and making a scene. We had NO balcony.... We had NO air con and the view from the window was of drity rusty drain pipes. We read the reviews but decded to ignore them, PLEASE ANYONE READING THIS DO NOT DO WHAT I DONE AND STAY HERE, YOUR HOLIDAY WILL BE RUINED. Only good thing is that the hell on the earth is close to beach but not worth staying here. The food was also disgusting, my chicken at lunch one day was full of blood and i near a broke a tooth at dinner!!!!

Personally I was bitterly disappointed with this hotel. I was expecting something very budget for what we paid but got even less than that. Our room didn't have a balcony and despite asking to be moved, we weren't. The room was tiny as was the bathroom, which had an excellent shower but no bath.

The all inclusive drinks option is fine and you never have to wait long for a drink. However there is 1 small, uninspiring bar so after a few days we got sick of drinking there and in the small pool area.

The food is vile. Lots of people had full plates but I thought it was disgusting so I ate 3 meals out of 8 days despite paying for all inclusive. Clearly some people have lower standards than me but if you're used to high quality food and often eat out at top restaurants you won't be able to eat the food here. I'm not fussy and I'm an adventurous eater so it wasn't a case of me not wanting to try something unfamiliar; the fact is that it was very, very poor quality ingredients the likes of which I've not been exposed to before.

The cleaners were friendly but didn't do much apart from make the beds. The sheets were changed once during our 8 night trip and I could tell they weren't sweeping the floors.

We got to know lots of people in the hotel as we were in Lloret for a music event and there were other people visiting for the same thing. I was disappointed to see that people who'd booked room only had far superior rooms three times the size of ours with a huge, newly fitted bathroom.

In summary my advice is the following:

1) Do not book this hotel if you can't put up with noise.
2) Ensure you book a room with a balcony overlooking the pool.
3) Do not book this hotel if you're travelling with children of any age.
4) Book room only, do not book all inclusive.

This hotel is a good option if your trip matches the criteria above and you're staying for a week or less.

Room Tip: Ensure you get a room overlooking the pool. Beware some have no balcony!

We got a holiday package- 7 nights self catering inlucding flights and transfers for £170.
So for the price we didnt expect too much. The hotel was very basic with no self catering facitilities.
However, the cleanliness, location and overall atmosphere of the hotel was fantasic!!

Anybody going to lloret de mar jun 19-25th will have come across the HTID ravers and so the hotels and generally lloret de mar is very loud during this week- so any complaints in regards to this - look up what is going on first!!!!!!!!!!!

Anybody planning on going to HTID next year - this hotel is idea- just round the corner for the strip, collossos and the beach. Also - if you get your tickets at the collossos it works out cheaper as they drop prices for most nights... we got a 5 night bank for 120 euros- VERY CHEAP.

I visited Lloret in Novemember also at a quiter time and I can imagine it being a nice pleace from families.

Lloret is generally a cheap holiday with lots of nightlife and also good for relaxing holidays the beach is ace and the whole area still has a traditional spanish feel about it.

If you are lookin for 5star luxuary though - dont bother.

Room Tip: ask for the rooms at the back of the hotel they are much quieter and its better for getting sleep in...
