booked hotel week before traveling.
arrived late (midnight) but were greeted by
duty manager who directed us to dining room where
a meal and wine were waiting for us. (nice touch)
room was nice and clean quite a nice size
towels changed every day.
lovely indoor spa .
food was varied and nice with good choice. and a good
local red wine was served with lunch and dinner.
lots of spanish pensioners in hotel so entertainment geared to them but it was quite entertaining.
location is on a main road next to htop royal star.
not at all noisy though.
and easy walk to both beaches .
what realy made our holiday was the freindly efficent
staff.
i would have no hesitation in recomending this hotel.

I’m just back from a 5 day break at this hotel.
This hotel is situated on the main street, in the Fenals area. There is a supermarket next door. It is a 10 minute wander down to Fenals beach, and a 20 minute walk to Lloret beach.
On arrival, at around 8pm the check-in was very smooth. The reception area is very large and has plenty of seating and areas where you could sit in relative privacy if you so wanted. I was given my AI band. The only downside was they would not let me have it loose enough to remove when I was outside the hotel, but as I believe they charge you €30 if you lose your band that may not have been such a bad thing.
My room was very clean but I got my usual view in whichever hotel I book –the fire escape out the back. The TV, toilet, a/c and heating all worked fine. No hairdryer in the rooms.
The rooms and hotel in general were all kept very clean, with maids working all hours.
The pool is not huge, but was adequate for the hotel.
The food was well cooked and there was the usual variety. The only real disappointment from my point of view was the breakfast. This was geared up to the continentals with plenty of cold meats, cakes, biscuits etc. For the English the normal fry up was very minimal. There was either sausage (normally small frankfurters) or bacon, beans, one type of egg and fried bread.
For dinner, certainly, and probably for lunch –but I was never in for that – you had to wait to be escorted to a table, which is probably a help in the busy periods and there was wine and water on the table if you were AI.
I went down on my first night looking for a snack, but did not see any at all, and never really looked after that, but I’m told they were available during the day.
Went in the bar on my first night for a drink, but the vodka was really awful, and the entertainment was a disco geared for the Germans. On the other nights I popped into the bar, the entertainment was no better, being aimed again at the other nationalities. The bar is very small, and on AI they tell you that you can only get 1 drink at a time, which would certainly cause problems during busy periods.
Overall I did not really have any problems with the hotel. It is a 3* hotel and you get what you pay for.
It was little things that put me off, like a lack of signage in the foyer for toilets, and for the snack bar. The fact that you can only get CNBC news in English on the tv. The fact that the hotel is very definitely geared for the continental market, excluding the British.
Would I go back? Possibly! If the saving in price was substantial compared to other hotels then I would, but it would have to be substantial.

The hotel seemed very good we were out of season so I guess it was a lot quieter than it normally would be although still a good few people there. The hotel is situated on a main road but never once did traffic noise bother me. Its situated right next door to a main supermarket which I found handy for getting any supplies such as drinks and snacks for the room. The all inclusive was good admittedly a pain only been able to get 1 drink at a time but it wasnt that busy to cause too may problems. The rooms were more than adequate for us as it was mainly just a base. The big plus was the indoor jacuzzi and steam and sauna rooms. I was suffering with a bad cold and the steam room certainly helped ease it for a while. There seemed to be entertainment every night although we didnt show much interest in this.
All in all a good hotel and certainly value for money at this time of year.

Ooh dear, we were looking so forward to this break, and it was our first time to main land Spain. First impressions where ok Hotel appeared to be modern and stylish unfortunately this is where it ended, staff were unhelpful and looked fed up! the room was small and ceiling low if we had been 6ft then we would have to crouch down for the week(ouch). Only air condition was a hole in the ceiling and this did not make much difference.

The facilities were adequate but sparce no staff to guide you through the routines and drinks machine was usually broken, tried to discuss this with staff but communication was poor. Food was not a pleasant experience as there were untold charges for drinks, which was not stated prior.

We spent most nights eating out and away from the hotel due to the lack of pleasant staff and attitude towards the guests, I can honestly say that i would not recommend this hotel and feel sorry for those who have already booked there.

We booked a 4-day last minute break and flew with Ryanair. Our expectations weren't too high but we had a very enjoyable break.
The hotel is a mixture of English (minority, German, French and Spanish. The location is about 15min outside LLoret and is on a noisy main road.
The receptionists were pleasant but the restaurant and bar staff a bit miserable.
No much entertainment but plently within walking distance.

On arrival reception staff could not speak English.

Food a bit repetitive like a lot of all inclusives.

Pool area clean roof top terrace which had jacuzzi was nice only downfall it was right on main road so could be seen from people on other side of road.

No English guests staying there the whole week we were there hence reason why no staff could speak English or if they could it was broken.

Hotel reception leaked when it rained which was disappointing would not return to this hotel.
