“lovely location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2011

I was with my family for 8 days in June 2011 and we had a good time. The hotel is less than 100 meters from the beach and we had a great view of the Mediterranean see and of the city of Blanes. Hotel employees were very nice.

The food was so-so. It really depends on your tastes. There were days when we enjoyed everything and there were days when you barely had what to pick.

What I did not like was the fact that the wifi was not free ! Come on, you can find free wifi in all eastern europe hotels with 2-3 stars but you can not find it in a 4 star hotel in Spain. You do however have internet for 2 euro / hour.

Good points :
- location. In less than 90 minutes you can be in Barcelona if you take the train !!! That rocks !
- sightseeing. Even in Blanes you really have what to see like MariMurtra botanical garden.
- entertaining. I did not see clubs but you can easily get with the ferry in any other locations from Costa Brava and you can have lots of fun.

Bad points :
- food like I said, so-so.
- lack of free wifi
- hotel has high prices but at only 10 minutes walking you can find a Condis supermarket with everything you need. I paid 3 euro / water bottle at hotel and I bought the second day exactly the same product with 0.46 euro from Condis.

We booked this as a last holiday before our baby is born so we knew the water will be a bit cold. The beach nest to the hotel is a plain straight line beach, but if you like something a bit more different try Cala St Fracesc. It a a perfect little beach, about 30-40 minutes walk from the hotel. There is even a restaurant with great food right there. The walk up there was a bit difficult for me, being pregnant and all, but there is a bus from what seems to be central Blanes to the Botanical Gardens which will take you very close to the beach.
More about the hotel. Staff were very nice and helpful. They helped us plan our day trip to Barcelona and gave us a lot of information about train times and things to visit.
The room was clean and we could see the sea from our balcony. Only thing I would comment about is the fact that there is no fridge in the room. If you want one you have to pay extra. For a 4 star hotel, I find this a bit strange. The safe was also extra and you had to pay for is. Parking wasn't free, I think is was about 11 euros a day, but if you wanted you could find spaces on the street. There is a spa and they had some nice offers, but had no massage for pregnant women so I did not try it. There is also a gym, but you have to pay to use it.
Food was the biggest disappointment for us. Breakfast was the same every day. Cold sliced meats, one type of sliced cheese, eggs not very well done, some fried sausages and 2-3 types of salad. By salad I mean salad leaves, sliced tomatoes, cucumbers and tuna each one in a separate bowl. They also had some pastries and fruit, but we expected more strawberries and cherries, as it was their season. Instead most of the times we got apricots and peaches and compot (pear and peach).
Dinner was the same for fruit, we had water melon twice and melon almost every day. They were cooking fish and beef or pork on a grill right there so you could have something fresh. The rest of the food was hot food. Always a type of pasta, but no pasta sauce... potatoes coked in different ways, salads. Food was not bad the first day, but it was almost the same everyday, that is why it became annoying. At least if it was something that we liked a lot, we would not have complained about it.
Most of the guests I think are russians, so maybe the food is made for them. Restaurant opening hours are also a bit funny. Everyone is there at 7 for dinner so you end up having to queue for the grilled meats. It is only after 8 that there is more room, but we found that some of the food would be gone by then, especially the desserts.
The pool is nice, there is even a very shallow one for kids, but again even that was cold. Half of it I think is in shadow most of the time. There were plenty of sun beds around, but there are no umbrellas. We never saw anyone to clean the pool which was a bit weird. Because of the trees there were a lot of leaves and flowers in the water all the time.
Hotel is a good 15 minutes walk from all the nice restaurants and shops. There are a few shops around, but all the action is further away.
All in all we had a nice time, but this had nothing to do with the hotel or the food.

Booked this as a last minute de-stress break and it certainly did the trick.

Arrived at 01.45 am and even as I was walking into Reception, the chap was getting my paperwork ready. Quick and efficient check-in.

Room was immaculate, minimalist with nice bedside lights, comfy chair and good sized. Bathroom very clean, with clean and plentiful towels.

Food was excellent with EVERYTHING you could want. Lovely fresh salads and fruit. Good choices of chicken, fish, meat, pasta, rice etc...Show cooking every lunch and dinner. Clean and tidy restaurant, clean cutlery, plates etc....

Pool area very quiet, brilliant for relaxing. Pool is FREEZING, so beware!!! Reasonably priced drinks. Visited the Spa for a hot stone massage which was an experience, lovely therapist.

The hotel staff don't speak much English but are polite and efficient. There was'nt any British guests in the hotel, which was quite novel. Lots of French, who were very nice, by the way, (I take it all back!!!!!) and Russians (did'nt realise they were allowed out from behind the Iron Curtain???).

The resort itself lacks character but the beach is clean and the sand isn't so fine that it sticks to everything. Some lovely little shops in downtown Blanes and great cafes for coffee/cake etc...

I would'nt go back as I'm more of a Turkey/Greek island type person but it did what it was meant to and I came home feeling relaxed and 1/2 a stone heavier!!!!

  • Liked — Clean! Pool and Food.
  • Disliked — Position (on a main road).
