“Nothing special, but OK for our needs.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2011

This is a typical older-style Spainish 2 star Costa hotel and, as a result, fairly basic. No aircon, thin walls, and noisy from within the hotel and outside. But it is centrally placed, with shops and bars nearby, and close to the beach and the free bus stops for the two nearby waterparks. The lift worked all the time we were there. There are two smallish pools, but only one of the sunbeds was not damaged. Our room was comfortable enough, with space for 3 single beds, and the small balcony had a table and two chairs. The bathroom had a small bath/shower but no bidet. The food was straightforward (not spiced), with a plentiful choice at both breakfast and dinner, though cooked and presented in the 'Spanish way'. (We have had breakfasts in 4 star hotels in Spain not as good as these). There was no entertainment in this hotel or the bars around, and, it would seem, little or none in the other hotels either. Nightlife in Blanes appears to consist of watching football on TV, and there is no shortage of that. The beach has coarse gritty sand, too, so, overall, Blanes is not great resort. The one standout point at this hotel was the staff. Without exception, they were friendly and competent. They don't have much English btween them but they were always happy to help.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the pool should be quieter.

El Hotel ha sido totalmente renovado en el 2012. El Hotel dispone ahora de la categoria 4 estrellas superior y cumple todos los requisitos legales de seguridad y proteccion contra incendios.
Los comentarios anteriores a 2012 no se corresponden con la situación actual del hotel y no deben ser ya tenidos en cuenta.

Durante el primer trimestre del 2013 se han realizado importantes mejoras del restaurante buffet.

Esperamos dar a partir de ahora un servicio personalizado y de máxima calidad a nuestros clientes.

Just go back after a very good week, we thought we had booked to go to Lloret de Mar but ended up in Blanes which is a lot quieter but very nice, we have no bad comments about the Hotel, its a very short walk from a clean beach/sea front, the room was cleaned every day with fresh towels, it is a 2 star so the decor is a bit dated, the breakfast was adequte for us girlies (fairy plain/continental), we would go back again, there is a 24 hour manned reception and the staff were very pleasant, we didnt use the pool but it looked OK alhough the sunbeds were a bit scruffy

Room Tip: When booking make your requests clear, we found them accomodating

Our room had one window and no balcony, the window viewed a square of four other walls of the hotel, including drainpipes and a lack of light. The bathroom door didn't close properly and the bathroom utilities were very dull. The double bed was very hard and barely comfortable to sleep on. The packed lunches were terrible although the breakfasts very lovely! Okay, so the hotel isn't the best of hotels but it is about 5 minutes walk from the sea with a pool which is on the 2nd floor providing a lovely feeling of being above everyone on the street and also with some lovely views. The surrounding pubs and nightclubs are an advantage for younger tourists who only have to stumble across the road back to the hotel. I'd recommend the hotel to those who are only looking for somewhere to sleep at night and to relax at a lovely (yet small) pool.

Our room was fairly clean, but very scruffy. The doors onto the balcony didn't close securely, and the balcony itself sloped forwards, which on the seventh floor made it too frightening for us to use at all. Our room had no air conditioning, which was as expected and would have been fine if there hadn't been a disco immediately opposite our room. This gave us two choices- get no sleep due to the immense noise until 5.30 each morning, or close the doors and get no sleep because we were so boiling hot. Also, the hotel is used by a Dutch tour company (a bit like our 18-30) and there was much shouting and door slamming throughout the night. We made use of the hotel safe, but it was expensive at 18 euros per week plus a 10 euro deposit. Lastly, if you do stay here, take your own towels- the ones we were provided with were thin, grey, ripped around the edges. Without exaggeration, I wouldn't have dried a dog with them. Approach with caution!

  • Liked — It's
  • Disliked — Sloping balcony, noise at night because close to nightclubs, revolting towels.
