“Avarage”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

The a/c wasn't working so it was a bit hot in room. Only two plusses are nice pool and modern bathroom. I don't know why is it called golf, because any golf coures dosn't belong to this hotel. Then it's just avarage.

We stayed at the resort as a quiet escape for a week.

The aparthotel was easy to navigate to from Girona Airport, taking just under an hour to drive, though I don't think you can take, public transport, so it's either rent a car (as we did, costing around £95 for a week) or a private taxi costing around the same price.

Though we booked a studio apartment we were pleasantly surprised to be presented with va one bedroom apartment, overlooking the pool area (as opposed to the car park and main road). The apartment was slightly dated but perfectly clean with a small kitchenette, which was sparsely supplied (no oven, toaster or kettle, though there was a microwave and 2 ring electric hob). There is satellite TV but only one English channel (BBC World News) though I was happy watching Eurosport with German commentary.

In the bathroom, sachets of shower gel and shampoo, as well as a bar of soap, were provided but not replenished during the week, though I'm sure if I asked I would get extra supplies. The cleaners cleaned the floors, emptied the bins and made the beds every weekday and provided fresh towels and bedding twice during the week.

Air conditioning is a godsend with the heat that we experienced. The pool area provided ample of space for all guests and often we were the only ones using the pool. There is a large grassy areas with sunbeds dotted around, again no problems finding a decent spot to sunbathe.

On site there is a restaurant that closes at 4pm everyday. We didn't try the food there, preferring to cook or eat at some of the cafes and restaurants nearby, of which there are quite a few to choose from, most serving Italian food. The closest beach is approximately 10 minutes walk away, with cafes and shops stocking beach gear and souvenirs along the way.

There are quite a few breach resorts withing 30 minutes drive from the resort, and the town of Pals is beautifully medieval. Empuries is supposed to have some stunning Greek and Roman excavations but (at the time of writing) have yet to see for myself.

I enjoyed my stay at Aparthotel Golf Beach and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Booked a refurbished one bedroom appartment in March 2013. The appartment itself was perfect and excellent value for money. Concerns from other reviews about the pizzeria just outside were unfounded as it is closed at this time of year. The pub opposite is pretty noisy though. If you stay here, then poolside (back of the building). Staff are friendly and the golf courses in the area are superb. Highly recommended!

Situated in the road to Pals beach, the Golf Beach Aparthotel is perfect for family holidays. Although the swimming pool is not huge, is the right size for the aparthotel size, always clean and never over croweded as we found in many 4 stars aparthotels. We stayed in a superior apartment overlooking the pool, which had been renewed very recently, clean spotless with anything you need except washing machine, I would definitively award it with four stars. We had some problems with the apartment electronic keys, but the staff couldn't be more helpful in solving the situation.
There's a bar-restaurant attached to the aparthotel where to eat buffet meals. There's also a take away shop which serves the same type of food as the restaurant. Although I would say the restaurant is a 2-3 stars, it contains a childrens play area that makes a perfect place for relaxing while having a coffee! Next to the Aparthotel there's a Eroski supermarket where you will find anything you need. There's also a Padi diving center, Optopus Scuba, for those interested, you could see optopus, moray and rays in your dives!
We also found a good mix of nationalities, Spanish, Dutch, French, English, without any nationality in particular dominating .
We will definetively go back!

Room Tip: Rooms 'superior' overlooking the swimming pool, more expensive but worthy

we have just come home from the golf beach aparthotel in platja de pals,costa brava spain.The hotel was basic,but very clean and the service was good from all the staff.The rear gardens and pool looked very nice but a little too cold for a dip in december.I can imagine this hotel to be a lot better in summer because at christmas this area seems to shut down apart from the odd restaurant or two that remain open.I would recommend the spanish bar across the road it was small but very friendly when it was open,This area also gives you a chance to practise your spanish because very few people we met spoke english,but this added to the overall experience.Also car hire is a must because at platja de pals there isn't that much to do unless you stay on one of the local campsites that looked quite good from a outsider.If you do hire a car i would recommend visiting l'estartit,calella de palafrugell,tossa de mar,tamariu,cala montgo,and sa tuna to name just a few on this beautiful coast.

Room Tip: The third floor is probably the best because you only look out onto the pool and garden area,but the...

The hotel and apartments are very clean and well looked after. The staff are very helpful and speak good English. The apartments are cleaned daily - ex. Sunday. In winter you need transport as there is no public transport available and the supermarket is 2km away. There is a live music bar and a restaurant over the road which stay open all year and are very welcoming. Lovely place for peace and quiet in winter.

Room Tip: ask for a terrace for the pool level or 3rd floor for good views

Got back from holiday to Aparthotel Golf Beach yesterday...
Lovely hotel, really helpful hotel staff, reception in particular very helpful with any questions you might have.
Will advise that the hotel layout is different to any other i have been to, there is no outdoor bar, or table area around the pool etc. Swimming pool and beautiful garden area, but all grass - no sunbathing area around the pool, no sunloungers, not a usual holiday hotel pool situation. No outdoor bar or entertainment around the pool area at night. Just literally a garden with a few trees and big open space for young children to play, and a lovely pool.
Area itself VERY quiet, nearest town PALS about 10mins away in car if you have a hire car, we took a taxi which was 18euros one way, not alot here at all - a few tourist shops and old buildings, couple of restraunts and bars but very quaint little tourist town. Another near by town is Palafrugel this is MUCH bigger than Pals and has LOTS more there, designer shops, gift shops, a street market, a lovely square area with cafes and bars, busy thriving town, about 15 mins away and 26euros one way. Well worth a visit.
Local bar "Barracuda" a few meters walk from hotel, lovely atmosphere, good evening in there. English bar "Arenal Cafe" is a slightly further walk but not far, shows all live sports games as they have sky and big screen TV. Very friendly owners, lovely atmosphere.
Beach a short 15mins walk away, beautiful area and has 2 restraunts on the beach front "El Solimar" and "Mal Blau" both really lovely food, reasonable prices and extremely friendly staff that create a really welcoming atmosphere. Lovely view of the beach and sea whilst eating your meal. Golf course a few meters walking distance, really large course...
Apart from these few places mentioned, nothing else around, so perhaps best to hire a car if you're hoping to see more of the area, there was 5 of us, which was reflected in the taxi price as we had to get large 6-7 seaters each time, if only 4 of u, normal size taxi would be 12-15 euros to Pals and only 21 to Palafrugel.
Taxi from airport - Apartbeach hotel 50-75 euros depending on how many travelling. Can get a taxi from rank outside Airport.
Lovely area, nice weather, beautiful food, friendly people, relaxing holiday if thats what you are after, fine for young children if you bring lots of games etc to do!
Would definately recommend as long as you are aware of its remote location! If a quiet spanish experience is what you're after this is the place for you! :)
