Stayed for our third time at this hotel in September 2012. The hotel is spotless and ultra modern, it isn't no 5 star establishment but that is reflected in the price that you are paying, this hotel easily falls into a 3 star.
We did experience a couple of negatives upon this visit but nothing that would stop me returning as we have booked here for September 2013.
Upon arrival in the early hours we were allocated a room that overlooked a side alley way on the first floor and the outside toilet for the pool/bar area and the smell was quite strong although the room was spotless. I went back to the reception to complain and was moved to room number 1, which in all honesty I think was allocated as he didn't like the fact I had complained about the first room.
Room 1 is the room next to the bar area, which wasn't noisy but you couldn't use the balcony as their was no privacy at all as this was 3 feet away from the exit to the bar door wish is the busiest part of the hotel!!. We had been spoilt the previous 2 years with a 2nd floor sea view but I wasn't happy at all with the allocation of this room, especially early hours of the morning with the lucky lucky fellas selling their wares a mere 20 foot away. Although the area seemed to have a camera, whether it worked was another matter.
The food is very good in this hotel and their is always choice and something that you will like. The staff are hardworking and even though it mat seem like a moan above I would recommend this hotel as it is spotless and cleaned every day. Safes are available, which I would recommend as a priority although we have not experienced any theft nor have we heard of any in the 3 times we have stayed here.
I cannot understand why people are booking San Remo, (which is more suited to couples) and after lugging cases their only to be told no you are in S'Estanyol, which is more than acceptable as a hotel but why do they take the booking for San Remo yet move people upon arrival??. I thought it was just us unlucky twice but the amount of people on here mentioning it should really warrant an explination from the hotel.
Their is plenty to do around the hotel with the bars on offer, personally we love Donnegan's and Panfers which are less than 100 yards from the hotel entrance. We skipped breakfast a couple of days due to a late night and found Sun and Moon bar facing the hotel really nice for light meals and a quick daytime drink, really friendly staff in there.
To summarise, this hotel is very good and one that I will return too after 3 very good experiences albeit last time a few gripes.
