We arrived in Platja D'aro on Friday, looking for a decent place to spend our last night of a 4 day break before heading home. We ideally wanted a sea view, to take advantage of the nice weather and amazing views of the beach.
References to TA, took us to try the Hotel Costa Brava, that was prominent and interestingly set at the left hand end of the beach. They had one room available, but no sea view. We checked the room, but it looked onto the car park, and wasn't too inspiring regardless of the view. On registering our negative views about the room available, the very nice and helpful receptionist advised that they also owned another hotel, the Aromar, and she checked with them that they had a room available with sea view.
We wondered back down the beach, and were very pleased to find the room they had was right on the front, with good balcony and that special sea view. The room itself was large and well furnished. Slightly let down by a tired old CRT TV (although nothing worth watching anyway!), and a basic but functional bathroom.
The facilities are good, with decent pool and bar areas, plenty for kids, and evening entertainment on the front. We didn't eat in the evening there, but the full buffet breakfast was ok just about. On the whole, a decent, well positioned hotel, and compared with other options we considered, seemed good value. Some older reviews talk about no lift/lift problems, and unhelpful staff. We had no problems with either of these. The staff were great and so were the lifts!
