This place gives you 4 pools to choose between – and it’s right on the beach, too.
This hotel does well for pools – there are 3 good-sized outdoor ones, and they have tropical features like wooden bridges and waterfalls. On the dining front, there are theme nights at the buffet place.
The hotel overlooks Pineda de Mar’s pretty sand-and-shingle beach. And even though you’re in a quiet spot, it’s still just a 10-minute walk to the town’s shops and restaurants.

Great family hotel
I took my wife and two kids, under 4 years old, and my father in his 60's to the Golden Taurus in May. We had a family suite as you get two separate bedrooms and a balcony overlooking the small pool and the beach. My son loved the fact that you could see the trains going along the beach and the boats floating out to sea. My father had a single room on the same level as us but closer to the main hotel. The rooms are basic but ideal when you have a messy family. The food was always plentiful and hot with a huge choice to suit any diet or fussy eaters. We had full board and eat in the hotel everyday. The staff were always helpful and happy, especially the English lady on reception who was always on hand to sort things out or give advise.More

A jewel in the crown. The best hotel in Costa Brava, Spain. The staff look after you as soon as you walk thru the door.Always smiling and ask if you need help with anything. Receptionist are great, speaking very good english.They have a reading area, which is very quiet and relaxing. The restaurant has a great variety of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Restaurant staff are very hekpful and courteous. Free WIFI in hotel lobby and reading area and if you sit at the swimming pool close to the doors. Overall a very clean and well kept hotel, Would recommend to families and couples. The beach goes for miles if you enjoy a morning walk, before it gets to hot. Take the Girona bus from the airpot to Girona central,(train& gus station) from there catch the RG1 trains to Pineda de Mar, Study the RG1 train schedule for the departure times.More
Very pleasant stay! children will love it!
My husband,youngest son and I spent 3 nights here back in early October and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel was clean and tidy and staff very helpful. We stayed on a full board basis, water and wine were included with lunch and dinner and tea/coffee and fruit juices included with breakfast. The choice of food was fantastic, always well cooked and plenty of choice (including several vegetarian options) The food was re stocked regularly. There were a choice of 5 pools including an inside pool and hot tub. A good play park for children and mini zoo. The area I would say is pretty basic, not much to do but you can get the land train into Calella (about 5 mins away). If you are looking for a relaxing break with a beautiful sandy beach near by then this is the place for you. P.s Their Mojitos are fantastic :D More
NDS26, Bexhill-on-Sea, United Kingdom
I stayed here in September as a last minute deal to get away. Firstly location- the location appears to be somewhat out the way from huge nightlife but then why come to a small location if thats what youre after. The beaches are beautiful, the sea is rough and not ideal for young children or un confident swimmers. If you come out the back of the hotel and turn left and keep walking up you reach a small array of all sorts of shops ranging from souvenir shops to chemists. There is also an array of bars and eating places which are not badly priced. It is also fantastic location for the train to take you straight to Barcelona - a good day out. Now the actual hotel - we arrived with thompson and subsequently this meant a large amount of people checked in at the same time, after an early flight the last thing you want is to be waiting around for ages and ages, luckily this wasnt the case, lots of members of staff where out checking people in and after about 15 minutes we where on our way to our rooms. We had two suits with a view of the mountains. These rooms had one double bed and two singles (Which we pushed together to create a double) The rooms where clean and spacious and alot better than alot of rooms you get in europe. The bathroom was also large with a bath/shower, toilet and two sinks. The shower is often something which falls short of expectations, however this one didnt! The food - we chose half board which gave us breakfast and dinner. Breakfasts where good, there was a wide range of things from a full english to pancakes, fruit, bread, cold meat cheese ect. There was never any issues with us finding a table (even though the hotel seemed to be packed) Dinner - Dinner again was alot of variety, with so many different options available, this was good for us as we had vegetarians in our party. The entertainment wasnt brilliant but then personally isnt what we normally get involved with. WIFI- there is free wifi in the public areas downstaires, just ask reception for the code they are more than happy to give this. The pool- We never had an issue with either of the pools or getting sun loungers which made a nice/ good change! If you are looking for a small supermarket, there is one out the front of the hotel but is only open limited hours, and then there is a slightly bigger one offering more food in the small village further left. Overall a great hotel, great friendly staff and nothing to fault.More
