“Great short stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2012

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
This was a very pleasant and relaxing stay and I would reccomend this hotel if you are looking for a good clean well situated hotel at Malgrat de Mar. This 3 star hotel 'does what it says on the tin'

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the pool, this gives you a forward facing aspect towards the beach. I chatted...

well i liked it so much i returned to malgrat de mar, and my fave bar Champions with marc. the hotel was great location near beach and town, but the best was 5 mins from champions. Prices are cheap 1 euro for a shot of anything, downed too many after shocks but was good at time. The only british bar left apart from the crown. we spent me and the other 12 guys most afternoons here 1.50euro a pint of san miguel till 2pm then 2 euro. we hope to return sept.

Room Tip: ask for a room over pool

Okay we were moved to here because the Casino Royal was such a dump so here goes.

When the taxi pulled up (paid for by H-Top) relief filled my body as the hotel is very pleasant and in a good location.

The hotel is small but clean, to be honest the only fault is the food which is same old everyday, well not much choice, but there is a strip of bars out side and shops beach outside (via railway underpass) all flat land so OK for people with less mobility.

I would recommend this hotel for a cheap break away.

We moved to Planamar from the awful Casino Royal. This hotel is located by the beach and short walk to rail station and shops. The staff are very friendly and service very good. Rooms are clean tho small. The food is of limited choice, but mostly fine, for the money you can't complain. Basic evening entertainment, a few kids activities. We are happy and would return.

Visited the Planamar on the 13th May for 5 nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Hotel is very clean. Rooms basic, drinks okay but food was awful as very little choice. But excellent location plenty of bars and restaurants to eat out. The Champions bar is good value for a few drinks. Also the Crown and Anchor is worth a visit. On the whole you can't complain as you only get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Ask for pool views as most other views are industrial.

My two adult children and myself have just returned from a four night stay at this hotel and have to report it was a great holiday. The room (338, the top right room overlooking the pool as you look at the hotel from the beach) was clean and well equipped with two balconies, tv (with Spanish, English and American channels), fridge, safe, air conditioning, nice bathroom and plenty of clothes space. The staff were super efficient and very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The all inclusive fare was plentiful if not top class. There was something for everyone and the restaurant was open most of the day. Drinks were mostly local but you have the choice of paying a bit extra for branded selections. Facilities were limited to a games room, a sauna, gym and of course the pool. The pool was spotlessly clean and a good temperature. Plenty of sunbeds surround the pool area and there is a bar close at hand. The WiFi was a bit dissapointing as it was localised to the reception area and seemed to come and go at random. The evening entertainment was only really starting to get going in mid May so it would be unfair to comment further. There appeared to be a full childrens program offered but as my "kids" are in their twenties we found our entertainment elsewhere.
The hotel is located at the point where the busy touristy part of Malgrat gives way to the quieter residential centre so an easy walk is all it takes to reach 'your' choice of activity. Right on the beach front of the hotel is a choice of crazy golf, quad biking and a relaxing beach bar.
A railway station is within 5 mins walk with Barcelona or Blanes etc a quick and cheap ride away. The local village has a pharmacy, banks, plenty of eateries and a large Carrefour.
So, would we return? Very definately, in fact my son has already booked.
I've read a lot of the other reviews and can only assume that the hotel has been taken over at some point in 2010 because our experiences don't match the majority.

Room Tip: We requested a room for three adults and ended up with room 338, a very nice room overlooking the po...
