Aparthotel Golf Beach
Ranked #6 of 13 Hotels in Pals
Reviewed 20 March 2014

We stayed in March 2013 (see review below) and had no reservations about returning this year. Perfect low season golf break destination if you have a car. The weather in March was again perfect. Self-catering accomodation is great value for money, beach and walks all near by. Many golf courses within 60 minutes' drive, including PGA de Catalunya. Front desk book your tee times at discounted prices. A no-brainer! AAA+++

Quite disappointing actually. Very unpersonal hotel. No smiles at check-in, no information about hotel or surroundings. Like a factory. Kids playing like crazy in the pool. No chance for actual swimming. Cleaning 6 days a week but seldom new towels and sheets. A really dirty towel was left in the tub to be replaced. They hung it back! Toilet broke and shower had weak waterflow.

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...
