My partner and I stayed here for two weeks. We received a warm welcome from the friendly staff and the hotel has an attractive fresh nautical decor which is carried through to the rooms. Our room was very clean and serviced with minimum fuss although as some others here have noted, the rooms are quite plain but the bed was... More

This hotel is different to the many chain hotels. It is down a small road and parking is further away. It is located very close to the beach. It is unusual and prettily decorated with a lovely beach/seaside theme in the public areas. The breakfast was excellent with a reasonable selection and wonderful hot, freshly baked bread. Our room was... More

Friendly hotel just the right size if you don't like huge hotels. Staff lovely really friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere. Rooms clean and comfortable with balcony overlooking the courtyard. Breakfasts good plenty of choice leisurely feel. Pool area small but big enough no need to compete for sunbeds!

The hotel is great. They have very helpful staff. Their breakfast section is pretty large for a hotel. If you are a beach lover this is a great location. They don't have a view of the beach just a FYI. Parking is a bit of a bother for those who are driving, but they have off site private garges for... More

Hotel Els Pins is fabulous-clean,lovely room, & fantastic staff-Jorge, Paul, Josep, Peter, Jordina & all the rest made us welcome & nothing was a bother for them. Platja d'Aro is fab, and Els Pins was so central & 30 seconds from beach. Breakfast 8-11.30, never ate lunch most days. Just what we needed,... More

Left out the third Location! as it is just 10 meters from the sea and no great views. This is a great hotel in a perfect spot in Platja d'Aro. 5 to 10 mins walk from all the best restaurants and shopping areas. The hotel staff are lovely and helpful. Breakfast is very good from 8.00 to 11.30. Make your... More

It is always refreshing to find a place better than what you had hoped for. Immaculately clean and a very fresh vibe exudes from this hotel and its staff. The location is perfect though GPS positions it incorrectly, just steps from the sea. Off site parking is slightly problematic, but the breakfast is great. Could spend several days at this... More

Just behind the first line, it is practically on the paseo maritimo and the beach.The hotel has a tasteful and light interior, with a small pool area and and with inviting common spaces. A fantastic good breakfast, with good quality more likely to find at a 4 star hotel. Even served cava in an ice bucket! The rooms are clean,... More
