“The most amazing experience ! Best hotel in Catalunya...”
Reviewed 4 October 2006

I stayed with a group of 20 people for 2 days at the Resort and we had the most amazing experience!!
If you look directly at their Web site ... you will discover incredible pictures .... Well, let me let you that the reality is even nicer than the web site.
The bedrooms are small appartments (with lounge, dressing...) with the coolest bathrooms ever (huge shower, jacuzzy bath, tons of towels, bathrobes etc.)... Their decoration is luxurious, and you just feel "at home" from the first second you enter them.
If you get tired of it (...) you can always enjoy your own big terrasse...
The swimming pool is also very nice and big.
There is a menu for the morning breakfast ... and you can start your day with a spanish tortilla, a foie gras toast or the best zuccini soup I have ever had (all for the same price).
Not mentioning here... the lovely english china and silver cutlery they use.
We also all benefited from the Molton Brown Spa ... and went in the Princess Bath (CRAZY!!) ... and our only regret is that we could not stay longer
Very important also, the personnal of the hotel is very discret and professional. The service match the quality ot the best palaces like the George V in Paris.
Last but not least ... if you want to do a small tour of the town or find a little bay to stay for the day ... they offer you courtesy small smart cars that you can drive ...

Conclusion: i highly recommend it ... a once life experience

What an enigma!

This hotel has the best of everthing and is an interior designers dream.

The room was superb and the service excellent. We have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world and this one rates really highly.

But, why oh why did they build it here? Surrounded by tacky apartment blocks and restaurants selling fish and chips and full english breakfast (all day).

I you want a hotel near the beach with a fabulous spa and great service and don't want to venture outside then this place is great.

It seems a real shame to criticise the owners for the location, no expense has been spared and they have created a terrific oasis in a less attractive area, it isn't cheap but I thought it good value.

  • Liked — Superbly equipped
  • Disliked — The location
  • Tips/Secrets — Regard the hotel as a luxury destination and ignore the surrounding area

Reviewed 20 September 2005

I booked to stay in Alva follwing its inclusion in two luxury travel company brochures. Despite the location on the edge of Lloret, I had assumed that the "resort" in the hotel's title would mean that there would be some insulation from the worst of Lloret! I was wrong!

The Alva Park resort and Spa has been developed as a first class hotel, the redecoration and styling of the hotel has been done to the highest standards. What is bizzare is that it is just a single block in an extremely built-up area of Lloret, and is surrounded by appartment blocks which are closer to two than five star! At approx 500 Euros for one of their standard rooms - this is just not appropriate!

They charge extra for a sea view, which once paid for you lear that the sea is actually just seen through a gap between the (tatty) apartment buildings.

The pool has been beautifully designed - It is just a shame that you are looked in on by all the neighbouring appartment buildings.

The children's club looked beautiful - and it was one of the reasons that we booked. It was just a shame that we were not allowed to take our son in to enjoy it!

Tha babysitter provided by the hotel looked closer to our son's age than our own - Not good for the 18 Euros and hour!

The hotel was virtually deserted when we stayed, and it wasn't low season. Maybe others had realised how over priced it was for such a grotty neighbourhood!

If the hotel had been set in grounds it might have been worth the price, but given Lloret is one of the tackiest resorts in Europe it is not!
