“Excellent location and relaxed atmosphere”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

Spent 6 days at the Aparthotel and were very pleasantly surprised, given some of the reviews. The accommodation is perfectly fine, although we could have done with a smaller pan in our apartment (I'm sure this would have been provided had we asked!).
There IS now free Wi-Fi in rooms and there is a nice pool with lots of sunloungers as well as a sun terrace.
The location is brilliant, just metres from a lovely beach, 5 minutes from the town (which has a lovely, laid back atmosphere and no airs and graces), and a short walk to the nearest supermarket, and a café which does chocolate con churros at weekends.
Recommended!

It's a nice hotel but to have a 4 star rate the room decoration should be more modern in my opinion and should offer free wifi in the rooms. It's close to the beach and town centre and has a good-sized pool as well as a children's mini. Suitable food variety for breakfast. Spacious rooms but the bedroom is separated from the lounge area with the TV, a sofa and balcony, which makes the bedroom really dark. The bathroom is nothing special. The receptionist was nice and helpful and they always check if you can do a late check-in. Also, you can leave your baggage in a locked room and spend the day in the pool/beach and have a shower in the pool changing room. They also offer self-catering apartements.

Room Tip: Better if rooms don't give onto the pool, much quieter.

If your expecting the savoy it's not but for £80 a night for 3 people it's very good value. It is a 65 euro cab fare from girona airport but plenty of buses too. I was impressed with the standard. I stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment with 2 teenagers. you walk first into the bedroom with 2 singles or a double bed, the bathroom which has a bath with shower over and bidet is off the corridor. This opens to the living room/kitchen with balcony off, big enough to sit and eat dry clothes etc. I slept on the sofa bed in the living area which was perfectly comfortable. There were 2 hot rings, a fridge, cupboards, sink plus ample pans, plates etc. we did have to ask for fresh towels and dump the rubbish in the bins outside but that's not hard. The position is brilliant 5 mins to the beach, very big clean pool lots of loungers and brollies, and a bar serving drinks and snacks. There's a good gym next door 3 euros a day ( they will give you a pass if you which to return the same day) there is a supermarket at the end of the street and the towns market is Tuesdays. If you drive, good at hiking or the local bus (1.70 euro) try the many beautiful beaches near by such as castel, callelea de palafrugel, la fosca, llafranc or if your hankering for other Brits try platija D'aro. I personally love that palamos is almost exclusively Spanish. (there were no cruise ships in when we stayed) every evening there was some kind of free entertainment in town such as rumba band, sandana's, a disco night on the harbour. The aparthotel has a buffet for 12 euros each day which includes drinks and deserts good if your on a budget although the beach front and old town have many good reasonably priced restaurants. The aircon was a great help and we got free wifi in our room which was above the restaurant I can't vouch for rooms further away although it is available in the lobby. I would ask for a room with a pool view if I returned as the street view wasn't great but as we spent little time gazing out it really didn't matter. Overall a great place to stay with children of any age, good amenities, excellent position, good value, pleasant helpful staff.

I don't know why this has so many bad reviews. I have been to many hotels and this is just your typical Spanish hotel - I loved it. Just steps away from the beach and all the fabulous tapas bars and restaurants. The breakfast was nice too. No complaints.

Room Tip: Very quiet, lovely pool. A few streets from the busy areas. Not as bad as reviews make out. No compl...

Had an overnight stay 30/31st August and cannot fault it in anyway. We received a very warm welcome and all paperwork was done very quickly after which we were directed to our room The apartment was very well equipped if any self catering was required. The pool on the 1st floor was a delight great for an early morning swim. I certainly would stay again There were three of us and we paid 72 euros for our stay which I thought was very reasonable plus air con was free!!! We didn't eat in the dining room but had a delicious sandwich in the bar.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 337 which had a double bedroom with balcony and sofa bed in living/dining area whi...

I stayed at the palamos aparthotel on 19,20th july for a short break.
The hotel was lovely and clean, clean towels and beds made everyday and free aircon!. it was a five minute walk from the beach and a 10 minute walk from all the bars and restaurant. Hotel is situated in a brilliant place.
The pool is nice and big with plenty of sun loungers we didn't have any trouble getting one.
The breakfast in the morning was fine, a selection of ham and cheese scramble egg and bacon. just what I needed.
would defiantly stay their again and would recommend to any one.

Room Tip: a pool view or a front/seaview room.

I only stayed one night and booked at short notice but was pleasantly surprised! It is perfectly located for beach, town and bus station. The pool and pool bar were fine exactly what was needed in the heat. The room was very clean and fairly modern with sofabed, tv, dining table and chairs and perfectly adequate kitchenette area (inc microwave) in the bedroom 2 single beds and wardrobe. Bathroom was clean and shower over Bath provided hot powerful spray. Staff were polite and courteous. Overall very good as a 3 star accommodation but felt the £90+ charge was a bit steep and probably wouldn't have paid it if I had more time to browse to book something.
