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.
