La Costa Golf & Beach Resort
Ranked #3 of 13 Hotels in Pals
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 August 2014

We (still) enjoy holidays with the kids that are now teenagers. We prioritize activities ... whether for winter or summer holidays. So, it is important for us to find a summer vacation resort that offers golfing, windsurfing, lap swimming and potentially other things such as tennis, football, go-karting, mini-golf etc. Further, it must be a friendly place, not too upscale snobish ... but good quality. In our experience 4* resorts is a good choice. Even though we rarely go the same place multiple times ... we have now stayed 3 consequtive years at La Costa ... because it offers these activities ... golf, windsurfing, tennis and lap swimming within walking distance. 20 minutes away is go-karting and a nice 18 hole par 3 course, which is convenient for friends joining that do not yet play the big courses.

The hotel as such has a good atmosphere, good food in the restaurant, friendly staff ... different types of rooms and even a 2 and a 3 bedroom villa, which we also stayed at. The Villa's need an upgrade ... but they work and are nice. The rooms are great and well maintained.

There are historical places to go ... when we need some distraction from the pool and golf course. E.g. Girona, Figueras, Pals, Begur etc. We also went sailing on a rented motor boat with captain for a day with some friends. It is great to see the coast from the sea side, halt and go for a swim and sail on.

Negatives ... well, there are few restaurants and little activity on the streets around the resort, so we need to drive if we want to escape the resort for a while. It is 10-15 minutes to more restaurants.

Room Tip: The Junior suites are really nice.

I arrived here with a friend in June by car during a road trip. We were looking for a smooth place to recover. The hotel is only a few meters away from the very nice beach and has a great pool area. There is a 25m pool, a gym, tennis and football court for sports and golf of course. The food is outstanding and the service is good, but most staff members only speak Spanish or French, which makes it a bit complicated sometimes to communicate when you only speak German and English. The golf area is big but we did not use it. The hotel is very child-friendly and I would not necessarily recommend it for people aged between 20 to 30, because there is not much you can do in the area. It was a nice stay anyway.

We arrived by car on our way from France to Barcelona and spent 3 nights at the hotel with two children 9 & 11 years of age who really enjoyed the stay. The large, clean pool and the proximity to the beach gives the hotel a lot of family friendly value.
When we visited in July the hotel didn't feel crowded at all, which you typically experience at family resorts similar to this. All food served was of good quality, service was polite and efficient and the hotel, restaurants and room were all clean and well maintained.

Recommended.

The hotel is well designed for children ( e.g non slip tiles around the swimming pool) and the staff are well trained and friendly. There are lots of activities, the food is excellent and the pool is superb. It is one of the best hotels we have stayed in.

We booked the apartment in January, had to pay security deposit and week in full nonrefundable upon booking. We had NO idea just how awful it was. When we got there, it took about 45 minutes to get into the apartment with keys that didn't work, no baggage service to drive bags to apartment which is about 300 meters away from hotel. The view, have to admit, was beautiful, but even that could not outweigh the smell of mildew, urine on the toilet, no phone, flakey wifi, mosquitoes so bad you couldn't leave the windows open to enjoy the ocean breeze and instead sweat all night long. Asked for fresh towels three different times, but no one responded. They said they had a gym with weights, and there was only one weight on the floor. (How do you lift with one weight, like going on a canoe with one paddle, around and around...) I clicked the box for housekeeping on reservation, but no one seemed to understand how to get housekeeping at the front desk. Had to pay 9E for a pool towel. Food at restaurant and staff there were wonderful at least. We could only stay 2 nights of our week that we had paid for because the place was so disgusting. If you stay at the hotel, you pay for your beach towels and don't get the view, but maybe the service is better. Not sure and won't ever be back to find out. I told the management several times of our issues with the cleanliness and they honestly could not care less and tried to say that they didn't say there was a phone, but then they didn't say there was urine on the toilet either or bugs or mildew. They could care less about their customers. Stay at Hotel San Roc instead.

Room Tip: don't stay in the apartment. maybe a villa or main hotel

Nice hotel with great pool, nice and spacious rooms (we had a junior suite) and access to beach (but you pay 5 euro for sunbeds and parasoll). Food from plain to good, and a bit pricey compared to local restaurants e.g Pals. A bit secluded if you don't have a car, but shop and restaurants within walking distance. OK wifi. Absolutely worth a visit.

Very nice hotel attached to a great golf course. Our room over looked the pool. Situated right at the beach there's a lovely coasal path that takes you along the stretch of beaches to restaurants about 20 minutes. The resort itself was very quiet not being holiday season for another month but nonetheless well resourced apart from the Mojito bar not being opened as often as we would have liked. The pool area is spectacular, the breakfast was very good albeit the same fare each day although you could always asked for an omelete to be made. 50% discount in golf fees for guests was a surprise.The hotel was immaculate & I'd certainly stay there again. The cab ride to Pals is €16 & well worth the trip.
