Room with sea view was spectacular. The hotel is built on a cliff with a golden beach (coarse sand) beneath it. Reception were very helpful and friendly and the room rate was very good indeed. The room was very comfortable and relaxing. Attitude and working approach of the breakfast staff left a lot to be desired. They were noisy, sullen and on the first day when we were late down to breakfast one of them was very hostile. This would not be acceptable in a 2-star hotel and much less in a 4-start resort. In addition, why does the hotel charge for overnight car parking? This may be common in some hotels, but was unexpected for us coming from Ireland.
Great location, comfortable room. Good breakfast. Restaurant expensive with very small portions. (Not for a hungry golfer). Bar closed at 12pm
The staff were caring and helpful. The view of the sea was amazing. Strange smell in the room(not too bad).
Wonderful view from room of beach etc A bit far out from town, staff were not 'cheerful', decor needs some money spent on it, & 7euro per night car parking charge was a disappointing, hidden extra
The staff were very good, friendly & helpful, especially in helping us with our air carrier who lost our luggage. The noise. It is on a very busy main road, which was being re-paved at the time we stayed there. Ask for a room off the main road.
The hotel is ideally situated about 15 mins walk from the town and commands beautiful views of the beach and cove below. As others have observed, the bedroom corridor needs new carpet which detracts from the otherwise quality feel of the hotel. The restaurant was disappointing but that wasn't really an issue as there is an excellent choice in the town.
We stayed at a triple bed room which has fatastic view, we could see sunrise from sea on the bed. Blackfast and dinner was nice with reasonable price, we will stay the hotel again in case of visiting San jose again. highly recommended. Wifi is available only at public area/
The wonderful situation of the hotel abit rnu down in the bedrooms section awful coffee for breakfast
Nature, location, room price, breakfast..... drainpipe to sea, internet costs
The view from the room over the sea, beach, rocks and pine trees is stunning. One of the best breakfasts I've had in Spain; really lovely lounge, bar, terrance and spa. Unlucky they had a wedding party on the Saturday we were there but they stopped the dancing at 11.45pm so very good really.
excellent location, 2 mins walk from the beach. Hotel room very clean, soft towels, minibar and nice balcony overlooking the market square.
A small, friendly hotel, close to the beach and restaurants, and overlooking the market square. Clean comfy rooms with lovely soft towels which were changed each day. I had continental breakfast in my room each day, sitting on the balcony overlooking the market square where there was always something to watch going on. The roof terrace was ideal for sunbathing. The staff were friendly and helpful. It was a 2 minute walk to the fabulous beach. Although there is no restaurant in the hotel it does have its own restaurant, the Bahia, about 100 yards away on the promenade, which is excellent. The hotel is situated overlooking the market square and it was very noisy on the Sunday morning from an early hour as the market was being set up. The next morning the street cleaning truck was out early and was very noisy, and kept coming back around the square for well over an hour (this was around 7 a.m). The hotel is opposite the town hall and very close to the church, both of which had clocks which chimed every hour. Unfortunately they didn't chime at the same time, so at midnight there was a total of 24 chimes. This went on all night so made sleeping very difficult.
Comfortable room and good shower Noisy at night and first thing in the morning (overlooks the market place)
breakfast good wellness center
Very good breakfast, pool and location. No air conditioning, no english language tv channels, very expensive bar, no alcohol or soft drinks in mini-bar.
everything was good, in general no complains,great SPA area,breakfast,piano bar on saturday (live concert) if you are going to stay on weekend and want to use treatments and massages,make sure you made booking a couple of days before, normally treatments on weekends are fully reserved.
Breakfast was good. Hotel standard was good and more modern then some of the reviews I read. Location was great and very pitoresk up in the mountain in between 2 beaches. Especially receptionists are almost unpleasant and more or less ignore you. No brochure about the hotel available, no information abuot the surroundings and receptionist more or less very unhelpful, although i do speak Spanish. Hence just forget it if you don;t speak the language, even english is no good. Overall, very hard to get comprehensive information quickly about the hotel and surrounding precious villages, beaches , restaurants etc.
Clean and quiet The staff spoke very little English
room lovely clean and modern. No hot water, which lead us to being unable to use the fantastic bath and shower facilities provided, building work on going at hotel
The location and cleanliness The staff are untrained and unhelpful. They enter the room without knocking or checking if you are there. The breakfast uses food which looks like it is leftover from the previous day, the eggs were so hard and dry you couldnt eat them.
We loved our stay at the NM Suites in Platja D'Aro. Very nice hotel. Very quite. Excellent with little kids. Two blocks from the beach. Very clean. Excellent breakfast. Unlike many other hotels with searched on the web, it turned out that small children (3 years old in our case), pay 60% of an adult to our surprise.
Deck and pool great, family room was spacious.
The Breakfast, quiet and yet close to the sea and the Town Very few English TV Channels
location and quality
AC not working at our arrival, finally did 25 hours later. Noisy construction works in and around the building. Helpful and nice receptionist who did her best to fix things.
The terrace for breakfast was very pleasant, the place is calm, the territory is nice, the balcony is big. bathroom with window the room was small, furniture was not comfortable (chair, fridge, wardrobe); the main question is that the room was sold at a price 115 euro pernight while the hotel price list at the reception stated 90 per night for a room. If booking.com do not charge any comisssion what was that?;) the breakfast was the same and very limited. Have to boil eggs by ourselves.
Design No Internet station but only wifi
Comfortable bed, private balcony. Good breakfast. Very small room.
due to a fire the week before the hotel was closed,for a few weeks booking . com should have know. It is a fabulous hotel otherwise the staff were amazing , we had the best ervice and the hotel all for ourselves , but of course no facilities that was the only reason we went to that hotelfor our wedding anniversary , we will be back next year definetly
helpful staff, spa restaurant didnt have half of dishes and vines mentioned in menu; beach is too small and not kids friendly, we had to walk to other beach
Wonderful breakfast, perfect rooms and service, always a pleasure to be there
The relaxed friendly atmosphere, spending the day in a bathrobe if you felt like it, great breakfast selection and beautiful views of the sea.
Near to Playa D'Aro and fronts directly onto the beach although difficult to access. Reception staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast staff the opposite. Good sized room with terrace and sea views. Luxury fittings throughout and unusually furnished and decorated but all quality. A good four star hotel but not quite a five. Fairly small bathroom for all the fittings provided. Expensive for dinner served in comparatively small restuarants. Hotel not geared for children which suited us. Bedrooms overlook terracing to bar and restuarant areas which could prove noisy in season.

the view of a construction site.
Hi,I spent 17 days in Spain ( 30July-16 Aug) with my wife and son (9). Booked Cala del Pi. We were really upset, becouse this hotel is pretty far from being 5* grade European hotels. There are several reasons: a. sound insulation is the worst I ve ever seen. You can hear everything is going on in rooms around your room, and also how the housekeeper cleans the upper room in 8-30 in the morning. b.
The staff ~ friendly, helpful and professional. The hotel ~ Clean, fresh smart but cassual
The hotel was just amazing, 5 stars in every respect. The spa was first class, the views from the pool were so nice, and the private beach cove was also really cool. The staff were extremely courteous and helpful. Overall, one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in, and it's unquestionably the spot to stay in Platja d'Aro if you're looking for something upscale. So what are you waiting for?!? Only slight negatives were there was some construction that blocked our ocean view from the balcony, and the a/c unit wasn't working properly so the room was hot and dry during the night (which probably would have been fixed if we'd noticed the problem before midnight).
Reception staff were excellent and the location is good. The bar service was pathetic.
24 h service, friendly front desk staff
The room I was moved to was far better than that originally allocated When I complained about the room I was first put in [windows covered with bird muck, and unopenable], staff said that I was allocated that room because I had booked on the internet and
de sfeer erg gezellig de luxe van het all inclusive goede variatie in eten soms wat lauw maar smaak prima iedere avond entertainment geen klachten de familie kamer beetje klein maar om te slapen prima erg schoon
the hotel wasn't ready to welcomed guests and it lacks manteinance
Everything. the staff was very polite and helpfull, the room and the food was good.
Not a 4 star hotel.rooms are 2 star, rest of hotel is 3 star
Very little, thanks to a change of Management and in particular a steep decline in food and drink standards. The Hotel has gone "all inclusive"....a major mistake. Restaurant facilities severely declined and no waiter service or decent wines available. Food vey poor.
Just value for money... Very basic. Even if it fits the 4 star hotel requirements unfortunately you do not fell like staying in a 4 start hotel.
The ease of having teenage boys be able to run around safely. The bar right when we walked into the lobby. The buffet eating (even though it wasn't very good). The food was not very good. My pillows smelled bad. Room key issues the whole stay. Every day we had to get all new keys because they stopped working. Some front desk personal very unhelpful. Hot water issues in showers some of the stay.
Location near beach The quality of the servicies and facilities clasify the hotel as a 2 stars one. The lobby is better than the room.
We were made very welcome and anything we wanted was provided without question. The staff could not have been better in their attitude, helpfullness or atentiveness.
Very serviceminded personnel which was very helpful as well as close to the beach makes this hotel to a good choice.
Good price/value rate. The beach only 50 meters, and the buffet breakfast was excellent. Staff don't speak english or french.
the location was excellent and if it had been a lot warmer we would have made much more use of the very large terrace
A small hotel in a central position in the town and very close to the beach. The room was clean and comfortable with a single and a small double bed. Breakfast was reasonable with a range of cold food on offer but hot drinks were poor from a machine. If you wanted a decent cup of coffee you had to buy it. Wi-fi was available in the hotel reception area. Car parking was on the street and if you parked a couple of streets away, it was free. Overall, good value for money. Most hotels give you a small cover to go over the bedside mat. In this hotel however they didn't need to as there was no mat!
Friendly helpful staff. Very good value for money. Excellently situated for shopping and beach. This was our second visit, and if we return to Platja d'Aro, would certainly stay in Hotel Claramar.
Close to the beach (although not in front of it), private parking, very friendly staff, and the beach itself. Going to the left one can find a lot of small lagunas. Some people complain about the noise, but the noise is coming mainly from the bar of the French hotel nearby :) Did not bother us.
Very cozy hotel is full of pictures which create a unique atmosphere, friendly staff, proximity to the sea, good breakfast
Friendly staff, nice and clean, close to shopping and beach. Good beds. None
Quiet and wonderful atmosphere. Excellent service and best staff.
Golf course, pool Uncomfortable low beds, poor quality mattress, pillow and linen, carpet old and dirty, cheap and damaged furniture, only Spanish channels on tv, overgrown neglected terrace.
Relax and quieteness
The location of hotel plus the quality of room and balcony Matresses on twin beds were soft. Food in restaurant in evening minimal portions so bad value.
The location and acces fascility , spacious room , very clean No negative points
a very nice hotel with good facilities and situated close to the beach. perhaps a suggestion is to extend the number of dishes on the menu. although we enjoined what was offered.
Everything was exellent--I really do mean everything !--The food was like a 5 Star Hotel Cant think of anything
Very peaceful, room always cleaned perfectly, dog friendly, easy for golf courses good selection of restaurants
Location friendly staff, good food Only one English speaking TV station
Large room, good position of hotel in the resort, and good food. Excellent parking.
Relaxed friendly and cooperative staff (with only one dining room exception). Very helpful receptionists. 1.Think seven euros a day parking in hotel grounds (not under cover) was excessive given relatively high room price of 116 euros for a three star hotel 2. Swimming pool was more for show than serious use as it was located directly adjacent to a dining area with no splash barrier.
Breakfast and the restaurant.Also the bar and the staff were all very good.
Staff were very helpful, even after I had left the Hotel for 2 days, to stay at a prearranged Conference at another Hotel, I popped back in after an excellent hike along the coastal path, and they were very kind in booking me a taxi. Congratulations on your excellent staff service. It should have been made clearer on www.booking.com that this Hotel is in Sant Pol and not in Sant Feliu de Guixols. It was a good walk to get from one resort to the other.
the veiw from room was great,food very good,staff were excellant. no transport down to town
The beautiful setting, views and proximity to the sea. Very good value. The bathroom had an odd layout and the shower flooded the bathroom into the bedroom on each morning use.
The setting, isolated on a rocky peninsula in extensive grounds and with a lovely pool area. The setting, isolated from the town of St Feliu too far to walk on a poorly lit road up/down a significant hill.Too corporate afeel about the place, dominated by a large conference when we stayed there.
Location is a nice cove in an over developed zone of the Costa Brava. Should be closed for a year of renovation. Staff fairly unfriendly, possibly due to high season pressures.
Good location for us. Lovely outlook and gardens. Pools very nice but concrete surrounding a bit "rusty?" in places
Excellent location,staff tried hard,room was exactly average. This could be a stunning boutique hotel but it needs a truck-load of money thrown at it. Everything is looking very tired, but the location could not be faulted
Fantastic setting with stunning views, buffet breakfast excellent. Pool and spa areas well designed with lovely views. Room comfortable. The Hotel could be regarded as genteel but slowly decaying. The whole place could uses a facelift. Navigating through the gardens to the pool areas is an unexpected and, for me, unwelcomed adventure. To compete, everything needs to be brought into the 21st century with a shed load of Euros being thrown at it.
We liked the position of the hotel, not too near the town but within walking distance.The hotel had everything we wanted, a lovely outdoor pool, a beautiful spa pool, its own rocky beach. The evening buffet was excellent and very good value. The room with balcony and sea view was beautiful.
The place is enchanting. The appointments are exquisite. The location is fantastic! Great place for couples, honeymooners, romance....The surrounding area and beaches are phenomenal! The only disappointment was that the candlelight restaurant which they are famous for was not open yet. Considering that it was the beginning of July and the weather was fabulous, I do not understand why they had not opened it yet. The hotel staff was very nice and attentive, however, they were mostly new and inexperienced.
The hotel is lovely, situated right next to the beach on the Costa Brava in a charming small town. The staff are phenomonally helpful and friendly, and directed us to not only some very good local restaurants and bars, but also to locations along the coast that we very much enjoyed. Our room was beautiful, and oversaw a beautiful stretch of the Med. We would absolutely stay here again.
The pool and spa were excellent and its situation overlooking the sea and beach were just brilliant. We stayed in a suite which had no balcony and for the astronomical price we paid I would have expected one. The shower was over the bath and once again I would have expected a separate shower in a suite.
Grand hotel....room, facilities, and staff were excellent. no
The position of La Gavina is stunning with the swimming pool overlooking the bay of S'agarro. We love the old-school luxury mixed with genuine caring and friendliness from the staff. Considering they are struggling to get guests this season you would have thought they might drop their prices a bit - it's very pricey!
the hotel is beautiful with a lovely surroundings, the breakfast was good and we really loved the hotel. it has a wonderfull swimming pool and spa.
Fabulous in all respects - we stayed 2 days and it felt like a week Nothing
The staff, especially the manager, did everything to make our stay enjoyable. Would definitely go there again. No.
The owner and the stuff would do all their best to make our visit comfortable. Were excellent and very informative with the recommendations what to do and what to see. As the location is very central because of the busy nightlife was a bit noisy, but this is the price you pay for the location...
Very friendly staff, close to the beach
The hotel was very well situated for the beach, shops and restaurants. We realley enjoyed the breakfasts. The breakfast has a great choice of food for a 2 star! We've had a wonderful stay in Platja d'Aro (you also find the kindest staff there)its cozy, lovely and clean, great staff they give you a 5 star treatment! TV and air condicioned on the rooms.
A good budget hotel. The staff were very helpful, close proximity to main street and shops
We found the staff to be very helpful and they all spoke Engish , the Breakfast was very good, taking into account the price we paid.The room was basic but we only used it to sleep in so what the heck !.We were within a short walk to the beach and the local shops are great.A bargain break was had by myself and partner . We would be happy to go back again. We did have some rather loud guys on our floor in the early hours but it was stopped very soon after I called reception ( 24 hour manned )
free wifi, breakfast, very close to beach and restaurants
The staff friendly and helpful, all spoke English. Good breakfast. The room was small and basic (also the price). Located on the main street 10 minutes from the beach. 12 Euro additional payment to the parking.
Staff very friendly and helpful, Close proximity to Beach, Restaurants and Shopping Beds very uncomfortable. need to remove plastic covers and need new mattresses. Not all rooms have either balcony or roof top terrace. our room was nothing like advertised or photographed
I liked the location of the hotel, the proximity to the beach and the shops. Some nights it was very noisy to late at night due to the bars nearby .
The restaurant was great with good breakfast and excellent lunch/dinner buffet. The apartment which it was on the ground floor had a lot of humidity and the curtains were very dirty.
if you only look for a place to sleep without any luxury and at a very good price, this is a very good place The walls are very thin and you can hear what's happening at your neighbours. When they are noisy, this become a problem.
The location -close to beach and city, kindly service-personel, Parking facilities, noisy guests and no control from staff
One room cleaning in 10 days is not enough for "3 star" hotel
location near the beach and coastal walk guests a bit noisy in the large centre courtyard late evening
Suitable for overnight stop, which meet our requirements, or an extended stay It may be worthwhile looking at your route information,on how to locate hotel,as we did have some difficulty.
It was great to have have a kitchen & patio area unlike a hotel where you do not have these facilities.
the food was very good. breakfast was almost the same every morning, but dinner buffet changed constantly. also a very nice swimming pool, in the center of the complex. The staff was friendly. Supermarket was ok, but could be a little cheaper. Quiet environment, even though the center is just 5 minutes walking. Cala del pi was magnificent! Good and quiet Samsung airconditioning in the room, also in restaurant. Half an hour from girona airport = 50 euros taxi. We were 4 friends of 18, but this hotel was excellent, certainly when you go in september and share an appartment of 2-4 people, you get a very good value for your money. We arrived at 9 in the morning and could enter our room immediatly. The only thing we were a bit dissapointed in, is the fact that we didn't get new shampoo and shower gel during our stay. Maybe we should have asked about it, but normally that's not the way it goes.
perfect self-catering apartment ,with daily buffet breakfast and daily maid service.the living/kitchen and bedroom had open views to pool area, surrounded by trees and also to the rising sun over the horizon
Very pretty hotel, unusual location, perfect sea view from the window, very friendly and obliging staff. Close to the beaches and in walk distance to the city center and main activities.
very nice people, good location, good value for money
The hotel is beautifully situated and that's about the extent of strong positives. Breakfast was good and public areas are attractive. The rooms are in need of a makeover, bed poor, pillow worse. Arrived to a bathroom with strong, long lingering odour after recent use even though it had been cleaned. No smoke detector in the room. Staff were indifferent to the guests.
Loved the scenary and the hotel's restaurant.
It is beautifully situated. The staff is attentive. The food is good. The view magnificent. The beds are only fair. New mattresses are in order.
Peace & quite No
The view of the sea is breathtaking. Loved the room, very clean and comfortable. We fell asleep to the sound of the waves - a pure delight. Excellent value, with full breakfast included, couldn't ask for a better deal. Location is excellent, beach on one side and a short walk to town sports centre and bus station.
Huge room , on the beach. is impossible to find the address if you come with the car because the street is on the beachwalk and there is no way to find it with the GPS. we lost alf an hour to find it goin on the beachwalk by foot until we saw it then we have to find coming in the regular street with car. the make you pay the "rent" of the minibar, wich is empty, just the fridge, they want 5 €.
perfect location at seafront, 5 min from town center, quite and always cleaned up room, spacious accomodation, well done breakfast buffet extra pay for the small fridge (3EUR/day), reservation for parking didn't work
The hotel has a very good location. The breakfirst was very poor. The hotel is in bad need of repiar and is very negleted a lacks parking
very pleasant environment
The Hotel S'Agaro is just across the street from the beach, so the location is wonderful! We could see the ocean from our room, and would have had even a better view, except for the beautiful huge trees in the garden and on the grounds that create an exclusive feel to the hotel. The breakfast buffet was the best I'd experienced in Spain. The maid was a sweetheart; so friendly and helpful. Even though she couldn't speak English she went above and beyond to help us out. We had a quaint little balcony, large enough for two chairs and a small table. The bathroom was quite large. There was only one computer available for patrons to use for internet access, and the internet was very, very slow the night I used it. The cost of using the internet was one euro for 10 minutes, which I thought quite high considering the slowness of the internet access there. I wanted to print my boarding pass for my flight home the next day, so there should have been a printer available, but there wasn't. The "standard double room" has only one double bed, and the room was quite tiny.
breakfast was excellent, also the bar and restaurant, and proximity to sea room was rather small
The location is great. Antique furniture which makes it all very romantic. Clean. The hotel is surrounded bu pine trees, a fontain at the entrance. The room was very modest for a 4 star, but the bathroom was new and clean. TV was vey small. The sunbeds around the pool are worn-out. Breakfast is limited to minimum necessary.
Beautiful setting.Fantastic bathroom with jacuzzi bath and shower.Made our two dogs welcome. .Coffee machine confusing in the restaurant for breakfast and no help from staff.
The hotel has lush grounds with views of the sea, a big pool, and good access to the walking path around S'Agaro, which must be one of the most beautiful strolls in the world.They were also kind enough to store our bags and let us enjoy the use of the grounds after check-out time.
The position The receptionist didn't ask for any confirmation document until after we had gone to our rooms. Then there was a demand for the number which unfortunately I had left at home. There was a suggestion that we would have to leave despite our names being registered and this caused a lot of stress. In addition because I thought that payment had already been made I was concerned that I would be charged double with the hassle of reclaiming. eventually agreeed that I would try and get in contact with associate. Spent a lot of time trying to get info requested from my e-mail account with no success. In morning we were advised that there would be no problem then when we checked out we were advised that we had to pay the bill because my original credit card had been used only to guarantee booking. There was a language difficulty but if the staff had explained that fact earlier it would have prevented a lot of stress especially to my wife and guests. I still don't undertand the importance of us having the confirmation number as the hotel had all the information from you and they copied our passports.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was lovely with the large gardens, pool and sea views from the terraces. Breakfast buffet was very good. The fact that if you don't have a room with a pool view you are then looking out the back of the hotel to other buildings and a view of the hotel's solar panels, and have to suffer the noise from deliveries into the tradesmen's entrance.
The restaurant was on the pricey side and parking a little difficult.
The location of the hotel The room was far too small and a bit noisy
great location, includes a nice breakfast the rooms could use some updating
The hotel has an excellent location with short distancde to the beach and the center of Platja d\Aro The hotel is badly maintained and rooms and all other installations are worn. It does not earn 4 star staus
The receptionist was very efficient, friendly and charming. Room was clean despite the decor being dated. Decor was a bit dated and patio door lock was broken.
good quality hotel
I have been living in this hotel for 15 times between 1970 and 1985 in our summer school holidays. Every year with my family with two children. We came here because of the nearness to the beach, the friends that came back every year and the extreme good relations to the former owner, Ramon Bertran. I organized many hotel tennis tournaments and everybody wanted to book in when the tennis event went on. We had yearly football games between the guests and the hotel staff. These events were promoted by Mr. Bertran. Finally we were something like a social community. Because of old memories I came back here in 1996 and now. I still like the place and I was very happy to see at least two of the old staff: Isidro and Carlos. Everything was fine and as expected.
Smart and clean and on the front with no noise at the time we were there Lack of information about the hotel,or restaurant,no menue dispayed for instance.
It was out of season so it was very quiet. The staff members were few but very helpful
The location of the hotel is perfect in Plaja d'Aro. The crew is kind. There is free wifi. The room is clean and the bathroom is confortable.
Second time here and was ideal for what we wanted, sea view rooms best as this hotel is located right on the beach. Easy walk to lots of shops and restaurants. It could do with a freshen up in general but rooms were very clean.
