I stayed at the Planamar 5 nights from 22/05/12 to 27/05/12. I cannot fault the staff from bar, reception, restaurant and chambermaids. All had a smile and were very helpful. The hotel inside and out was clean and tidy, parts showing a little wear and tear. The food was sometimes a little bland, some of the meat dishes as mentioned in other reveiws were obviously made from poorer cuts of meat but there was always variety and fresh salads available. Breakfasts were the usual continental idea of bacon (hot ham strips) and hot dog sausages but again, there were other choices, scrambled eggs, beans and a selection of fruit and cereals so you were never going to starve. Local lager and spirits were acceptable although served in plastic tumblers. Situation of the hotel is brilliant, near all shops and only 5 minutes to the station. Ask for directions to the local town park which is raised up above the town and offers great veiws. The train runs up the coast and offers fantastic veiws. If you are planning on a trip to Barcelona you can buy a combined train ticket guided tour bus trip currently for 24 Euros. The beauty of this is you can hop on and off all 3 different routes in Barcelona all day info at http://www.barcelonabusturistic.cat/web/guest/home
