I can honestly say this is the only hotel I have ever stayed in that allowed dogs to stay.We were not told this and there was a lot of yapping,unbeleivable.The food was o.k but kept picking up cracked cups and plates that still had dried food on them.
The pool was really small though looks a lot bigger on the brochure.There were two glass circles around the pool which let in light to the indoor pool and they were really slippery when wet.Entertainment was pretty dire,one parrot show which was more interested in taking your photo and charging you 10 Euros and one flamenco night.

The journey by coach was long and arduous, but we arrived at the Stella at 2.00 p.m. checked in and shown to our rooom with efficiency and courtiousness.The hotel was smaller than the norm but benefitted from this, the staff were extremely friendly and the clientelle was a mixture of French, English and Spanish, no rough and ready types.
The food was well presented and tasteful, there was entertainment but this was mainly aimed at the Spanish guest, in my experience the Spanish could improve on this generally.
Pineda is a small working town as well as a resort, so it gives the opportunity to view the real Spain, I prefer the hustle and bustle of the larger resorts, but my wife enjoyed the peacefullness and tranquity of the resort and the Stella Hotel.

I was kept awake for two nights because of noise from the corridor but mostly from room above, you hear every footstep and bed creak! - the hotel staff although said with a smile told me they would not move me and went on to say this was a big problem but will be corrected when they are re-furbished?
Also the Air con in my room was not very efficient and I suspect not often serviced.
The pool area was clean tidy and plenty of sun beds although the photographer who took the pool photos I looked at must have been very good or had an extreme wide angle lens! Although the pool size was fine and did not get too busy. The hotel is well situated within the resort although there is not a lot to be near!
I would not stay here again through own choice - Also watch out for the Ryan Air Luggage Rip Off if travelling with them - almost everyone had luggage charges at airport.

I have stayed at the hotel 3 times previously, and am planning on staying again in September 07.
This is only from our point of view, we would say the hotel, is more for the over 50s as there is not enough entertaiment for children or teenagers, but if you like a lovely quite clean hotel this would be ideal for you.
My personel favourite in pineda.

We booked flights from Stansted with Ryanair, but beware unless you have small children or handicapped then there is a mad rush to get seats. We were delayed 1hr 30mins going out.
Stella was very clean, Maids in every day,clean towels etc always.
The room was ok but faced apartments accross the road.
Food ok , safe ripoff for a key, and a charge for remote for TV.
The new pool small but big enough and has a seperate jaccuzi. Plenty of sunbeds so no need to put your towel out.
Looked at other hotels in area the Montemar ok , Hotel Aqua Promenede ok not musch room around small pool.Hotel Sorrabona basic clean looks ok, Pineda Palace 4* looks ok, Taurus big Thomson Superfamily hotel nice pool's clean and a lot going on.
Barcelona is a must.
Trains to and from good on time Air con and good value.
Go to Nuo Camp, walk down ramblers, watch the magic Fountains, see the Olympic village a good day out.
Try the Cafeteria Miss, on the seafront good drinks prices always busy.
Buccaneer good clean but too much karaoke.
Good hotel to go too and a nice clean quite resort, try the Noddy train and vist Callela not as clean as Pineda.

Having read all the reviews just to check it hadn't gone down the pan since last time, and it had'nt.It is situated just a street or so from the promenade, a couple of minutes walk to the beach and train station.
Having been to Pineda in the festival time,being a little bit away from the promenade can be a good thing as in peak season it can be busy. The hotel is absoloutely spotless, the hotel staff are always happy to help, entertainment is not brill, but then again that could just be down to personal choice, it isnt my thing really.
Would I visit the hotel again, yes course I would. although just a tip. If you have kids make sure you get a family room. my husband is a big bloke,and with three of us squeezed into a standard double it was a bit tight.
The food is plentiful and well presented, but can get monotonous, however if like us you eat out some nights this isnt a problem.
