Hotel was good for basics, but if you're looking for an amazing pool and haute cuisine, this is not the hotel for you. Drinks were always plentiful, rooms clean, although some did not have air conditioning which caused a few guests to moan, and quite rightly.
Hotel is beautifully set out and is a great base for a holiday- next to the beach, set on a lovely square with benches, and cent door to the train station- ideal for trips up to the. Last to other resorts and to Barcelona, which is both close and cheap to get to.
Ideal for kids, you could spend all day on the beach, or there is a nearby Aquapark then wander in the evening and have an ice cream, and there is also a good road train which my little one adored. Place is not too busy and full of different nationalities- a real mix of ages too which catered well for our party. A great holiday for the price we paid.
The bar was nice, the staff friendly considering they were probably sick of drunk foreigners speaking anything from Spanish, English, French, Dutch and German!
The bedrooms fit their purpose, I could shower and change there and of course sleep. I was at the bar most of the time so I expected nothing more.
The pool area was a bit crowded, but the beach is a stone’s throw away and there is a massive courtyard area if you want to sit and chill in the sun.
If you’ve been all inclusive before, then you know what you expect, if you haven’t, either don’t have high expectations or go self-catering.
The entertainment at night comprised of a mini disco for children, then someone playing cd's which became very repetative.
All in all we had a good time, but it could have been so much better with good food and real cocktails.Would i go again and recommend to friends and family??? Absolutely not!!!!

Food was as many other reviews had described it, plenty of choice, always something for everyone, but a bit 'samey.' Longer than a week, you would really feel like eating out for a bit more variety. Really enjoyed the fish though.
Hotel location superb, right on the beach and Malgrat train station right next door. We were lucky and had a sea view room; you need to try and ensure you get a sea view room, as once you've had one, no other room would come close!
Found hotel staff very friendly and helpful; all spoke several languages, as a lot of Spanish, Germans & Polish people staying. Staff behind bar great fun and friendly.
Entertainment let this hotel down; just a quiz one night & disco in the bar most nights.
We plan to go back next year to this hotel, we really enjoyed it. Pool area very small, but beach is lovely and you can use the hotel's own beach bar for your drinks.
Train station next door is a plus; Barcelona visit a must.

I am very glad that we were given this hotel. It is literally a 3 min walk to the beach (under the railway ubderpass)
There was alot of choice for meat / fish eaters. Lovely Salad choices and great desserts!
The bar staff / restaurant staff were very friendly.
We were there just before the season started and I'm glad about that as it was packed the last 2 days and not as chilled out!
The pool area is abit strange as the hotel is built around it so only certain parts got the sun at certain times of the day.

The hotel location was a brillant one, on the edge of malgrat de mar, as we found wasnt a very nice place, to the left of the hotel is lovely, typically spanish, and their are no hotels, and their is a local market, to the right was malgrat de mar, which our family found loud and quite scally.
The entertainment was absolutely unbelievable terrible, staff on this are all anoying and try and pressure you into getting up, as far as im concerned there was no entertainment, their was bingo one night we won three times, me niece and nephew went up to collect the prizes and where given two ash trays! and a candle,
The hotel staff where terrible, apart from a few at the bar, who where nice and to be fair are good with kids, and make you laugh, the maids are not very nice and are rude, and the woman on the front desk, (the older one) can be described only as the rudest and unhelpful person, mix up with the booking from her, caused a lot of worry and a sleepless night.
The hotel though did have a very good mini club, and also had a beach hut, for all your drinks, for all inclusives, brillant it was. saved us alot of time,

The hotel is situated near a railway station which didnt bother us at all. The hotel is also right on the beach which was important for us.
The main noise came from the pool area at night. We had a room with a pool view and the noise was so bad one night we moved rooms. The noise, to be fair, was probably down to the gang of Germans as apposed to the hotel but we couldnt stay in that room any longer. Being All Inclusive, unfortunately the gang stayed at the hotel all day and all night. I would have loved a room with a sea view but they were full!
There is no air conditioning in the rooms either so we had to hire a fan for 2 euros a day. A fan doesn't really do the job of air conditioning but it was better than nothing.
The food was ok. There was always something we liked and didnt go hungry. It would have been handy if the food was labelled as it wasn't always obvious what was what!
Most of the staff were helpful and pleasant. There is always a fight for drinks in the evenings and the bar staff aren't always polite. Beware that the Bar Sorra D'or on the side of the hotel ISN'T all inclusive and they charge for your drinks.
All in all I would go here again as I loved the location and expected a 3* hotel which was what we go.
