“What a load of rubbish”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

just read the last review, let me put things straight, 1/ most of the staff speak English,2/ the food is always very good, 3/ if he was the only one staying, why did he say that the hotel was full of people over 70.4/the place is not run down, we have been to this hotel for 15yrs, so i think this review is a load of rubbish

The hotel on arivall was, the only way i can explain closed!!! The first week in june! We had to ring the bell to which a spanish man let us in and gave us keys. He could not speak a word of english, at all!!!..... We woke to find we were the only guests in the hotel. The breakast can be described as unedable and anyone looking to book half board as we did can expect to eat out. Three times a day as the evening menu has no choice and is of a poor quality. I honestly do not know were these other people stayed as it cannot be this hotel in pineda. Room was clean and tidy but we had a real issue with damp sheets. Everyday!!! The tv can only pick up 6 channels only one of which is english news channel. The hotel is full of 70+ residents and feels like you are staying in a poor quality old peoples home... Non of the staff speak english an when trying to complain will say "no comprende"... The lift door has no safety device and trapped my partner and childs pram between and took real effort to free them. When we told the receptionist... "No comprende"!!!! The pool had bits floating on top and we could see the dirt at the bottom. I am still staying at the sorrabona but didnt want for someone else to make the same mistake we did by booking this hotel based on the false reports!! I can only think they are false accounts!! The area is run down with lots of graffiti and smashed up tvs and cabinets evwrywhere! There was a big sign up in reception warning people of muggings outside the hotel addressed from the police!!!! The snak bar and pool area was a poor attempt and we had to spend most of out time at the local taurus park hotel just to be sure of the safety of our children. The cleaners leave your balcony door open after cleaning and the way the local area looked we had to wait till after the cleaners had been to shut!!! The hotel is also freezing at night and no heating is provided! The access to the front of the hotel is not good. Overall i would not book here at all!!! There is no shops or resturaunts just two shopfront pubs. The area is derelict!! And the hotel is not suitable for anyone never mind familys. As i say i am still staying here but did not want anyone else to be in the same predicament i am searching desperatly for alternative accomodation!! If you do not believe me or the one other person who has rated this hotel terrible feel free to try it out to your dissapointment. TERRIBlE!!!!!

Stayed 6 nights at Sorrabona and enjoyed our stay there. The room 116 was very spacious with a sea view beyond the road and railway and the breakfast here was good with plenty of choice. The restaurant in the evening was a bit too 'floodlit' for our liking, but there are plenty of bars and restaurants near by. Pineda De mar is not the most picturesque resort, but it has a good beach with a few beach bars/restaurants. Most of the coast line from Barcelona has the railway running in front of the hotels, but at least the station is close by!
Overall a good value hotel for exploring the area.
p.s don't park outside on thursday night as there is a Friday market and your car will be towed and cost 140euros to recover

Just came back from Sorrabona Hotel, very clean, Staff were very helpful and polite, and the food was very nice with a good selection. It was an ideal location, across the road from the beach. Would go back again.

Hotel is just as good, food very good, staff very helpful and friendly, as for noise the hotel next door does has music,but it stops at 11.30pm. it seems it is only the English who moan, as all they want is anything with chips and bacon and eggs for breakfast, i am English, i we love the food, for godsake you are in Spain not the uk.

Room Tip: go for grand comfort

Just back from a four night break staying in the Sorrabona and it 'did what it said on the tin'. Room 312 with a small balcony overlooking the beach was clean and comfortable. We were full board and the food is absolutely fine, bit 'samey' but, hey, how varied is your menu at home? Staff friendly and helpful. There is noise from the adjacent pavement bars and the terrace of the nearby Pineda Palace but this stopped by midnight and we were able to sleep with the doors to the balcony open despite there being the road directly in front of the hotel. Guests were predominantly Russian, Dutch, German and Spanish.

This was a clean, comfortable hotel, next to beach. Nice pool area. However: (a) Difficult to sleep due to VERY LOUD music from terrace night club in the hotel next door. (b) Breakfast was not good; spanish hotels need to send their staff to a few Austrian and German hotels to learn how to do breakfast! [Lunch at poolside was slightly better]. (c) Hotel staff was not helpful in terms of helping to store luggage for a few hours after check-out [seems like such a basic service; one that is offered in most hotels these days]. Note: We stayed at Hotel Stella in Pineda de Mar last year, and will go there next time!
