Good staff & location, terrible food & drinks
Posted 27-Jun-2018 on Hotels
Staff were great. Reception were helpful and lovely - checked me in at 3am(!) after problems with my transfer from airport (even saved me some dinner and bottle of water!); and they helped me find alternative transport back to airport for a good price as I didn’t want to use my pre-booked transfer. Bar staff always seemed friendly and smiling too.
Location for the area is good. Less than 10 min walk to beach, 10-15 min walk into Lloret de Mar so in easy reach of coach station, bars, clubs and restaurants but you aren’t bothered by all the noise and people. Bus stop 2 minutes walk away (Lloret Fenals?) where coach transfers to/from Barcelona all pick up from and drop off at.
Was put in a room with four single beds. Not a problem for me on my own, but so many beds in such a small space that there’d be nowhere for your luggage and couldn’t move around if there was 3 or 4 of you. Cleanliness OK.
Although food was edible the quality was absolutely dreadful - like cheap, bad school dinners. Burgers were unidentifiable ‘meat’, pasta sauce was like cheap runny ketchup, bread always stale even at start of breakfast service, veggies had lost all colour, battered fish was floppy and soggy, even ‘local dish’ of veggie paella was too salty too eat and clearly out of a packet... Spirits from the bar also seemed to be heavily watered down - couldn’t taste any alcohol!
Don’t go all inclusive. Include breakfast then eat out - lots of cheap places nearby and supermarket next door.
