"Spacious room with nice seaside view, awesome spa"
The hotel is nice, it's described as a 5-star hotel, but I would rate it as 4 to 4.5 star overall (in comparison to other 5-star hotels in the USA and Europe). The room was very spacious with a balcony (I had a seaside view, paid a little extra for this view). The Jacuzzi needed slight repairs and had weak jet streams, a minor disappointment. I had friends staying across the way at the Palas Pineda (same hotel group) and my hotel was definitely superior to their hotel in terms of bigger rooms although there was more nightlife and activities at the other hotel. Costa Dorado/La Pineda caters to many Russian tourists (my travel companion speaks Russian and I am learning) so this is a plus if you are Russian-speaking, in addition to other languages being spoken. The staff was friendly enough but I've seen better at 5-star hotels. Overall a positive experience.

The hotel we stayed in was Estival Park 1. Just a short walk from the beach, shops and restaurants. Its also five minutes or so from a water park. The location of this hotel is great, with local buses running near by to different towns. The food was great. There was a wide variety for those who wanted to watch their weight or just enjoy good food. I have to say what i enjoy the most is having spa facilities on site. Their full body massage is a various treatments is a must and very affordable. The rooms are cleaned daily and hotel is kept in great condition with a warm atmosphere and friendly staff.
Arriving in darkness we found it difficult to find the reception which is actually located on the other side of the street, however this was the only problem encountered at this property. These apartments are officially two star accommodation although I cant see why the building itself was in very good order all round and the apartment itself was very large comprising of two large twin bedrooms with big wardrobes and plenty of bedding, a large bathroom with bath/shower sink toilet and large illuminated mirror, living area with small tv dining table and chairs linked to an open plan kitchen area with oven hob and hood, sink, microwave and large fridge with a smaller freezer compartment, there was also a washing machine and kitchen cupboards with all the plates glasses and cutlery you will need, and patio doors leading to a large balcony with patio furniture and a clothes horse.All of the above items were very modern and looked almost brand new. In the ground of the apartments there is a very big pool and surrounding pool area, miniature golf a play ground, tennis courts and a 5 aside football pitch, all of which were well maintained. on the downside if you have a hire car as we did parking can be hard to come by although there appear to be many spaces they are almost always full. To sum up this is probably the best value accommodation I have encountered and would definateley use again should I return to the area.

Arrived at the hotel, only to be told the key for the room is left somewhere else. Went to Pineda Park Apartment, only to be told the key was kept somewhere else. No one hardly spoke any English.
There was no reception, no toilet paper, had to buy our own. No clean towels all week. Had to do our own cleaning and washing.
The television had no English channel, only Spanish. Beds very uncomfortable, and the area is very noisy. The pool was very noisy at night, and was busy up to 12 midnight. People playing tennis, and families on their balcony holding long conversations up to 1 am in the morning. I had no sleep, because the bedroom had no air-condition, therefore, the window had to be left open to get some fresh air.
The apartment itself was clean and big, but the area was too noisy to relax. This apartment is more suitable for young people.

I guess with beach hotels it hard with all the salt to keep it in top notch condition so it was fine but a little old. What I didnt like was the mess the guest made at the pool with cups straws, etc. Would of hope there was cleaning at night but saw the mess in the morning. Food was good, not great, but if you go for the full meal plan you would get your moeny's worth. Good location very near the beach - but the beach was a bit dirty with cigs butts. Very good spot for families - would go back again
