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.
