This place gives you four pools to choose between – and it’s right on the beach, too.
This hotel does well for pools – there are three 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.
Designed for 3 to 11 year olds, Thomson Kids’ Club offers 2 hours of activities, 5 or 6 days a week. And that includes at least 3 evenings. It’s split into sections, with Tots for 3 to 5 year olds, Team for 6 to 8s, and Tribe for 9 to 11s. Best of all, most kids’ clubs activities are completely free. And outside of peak season, there are parent and toddler sessions 3 days a week, too. For your peace of mind, all Thomson Kids’ Club staff have advance DBS checks and hold NVQ Level 2 childcare qualifications. They’re First Aid trained, and there’ll be at least 2 of them on duty at all times.

Very good but jose the restaurant manager too much
The hotel was very clean as I had arrived in July on the 14th and had stayed for one week and were full board. As this was the first time for me and my family arriving at this hotel at lunch I had went to get orange juice from the machine but then found out you cannot. Jose who was the restaurant manager had came to me after I had requested I talked to the the restaurant manager. He then told me I have to pay for the drinks and the price was a rip off. He then started to have a row with me after I had asked for tap water and said I have to pay for it. I was really angry about that and feel that I should have at least had water. This has never ever happened to me before and I was very furious and frustrated. One of the waitress was very kind every time me and my family had come for lunch and dinner. I feel that she should be the restaurant manager. Jose just gave me and my family a headache every day not happy!!!!More

Great for families. Not so good for seniors, too noisy.
Food fine and all inclusive fine. Entertainment in main bar mainly for kids. Piano bar great for adults. Not much to do outside the complex.
Trip by boat to Tossa Del Mar is a good day out. Nice walk out on the promenade. Sea has a sudden deep drop close to the water line.More

Golden week but not diamond
Just spent a week at this hotel with my partner. Despite being together for four years this was our first proper abroad sun holiday together.
We booked with Thomson and despite the shockingly awful start of our flight being delayed for 24 hours, don't ask I'm trying to forget it happened, we finally arrived at the hotel.
First impressions of the hotel was the it looked alright, but not UK 4 star hotel, more a 3 star. But that's ok I had kind of expected that.
We were all inclusive and when we arrived we were ushered down to the snack bar, where they only served greasy burgers and chips etc, whilst the half boarders checked in.
Eventually checked in and went to room, which was basic but clean and tidy. I had previously read the reviews on here and had emailed ahead and asked for a high floor sea view room overlooking the quiet pool, we got 4th floor but all the other bits we got.
Food... OK. Not great but not terrible. Clearly cater for the unpicky masses.
Despite being all inclusive not all things are inclusive on the food and drink front, there are some things you have to pay extra for eg branded alcohols, ice-cream and certain other snacks.
If you're not a picky eater you won't go hungry that's for sure, but if you're more of a fine diner I suggest you eat out or stay at a 5 star.
Facilities were good. Outdoor pools nice and clean and plenty of sun beds. We stayed by the quiet pool where they didn't have day time entertainment which suited us, and there was a pool bar too.
Pool bar drinks served in plastic cups...some people on here have been anti this but given its an outdoor environment with people in bare feet having real glass that can break and cut I'd much prefer plastic, and there were plenty of bins.
There were a few other facilities too like tennis courts and indoor pool bubble didn't use these.
2 towns in either direction as a 5-10 minutes walk. Nice evening walks along the sea front.
Lots of places to sit and relax.
Overall nice holiday. Would we go back... I wouldn't say no but I'm not the type of person to keep going back to the same place every year.
Excellent hotel for family
Hotel staff were excellent, friendly and helpful.
English reps were poor.
Hotel was very airy and spacious.
Food was very good and plenty of it.
Evening entertainment was ok.
Day entertainment of badminton, cycling, football was great for me and my boys.
View from back of hotel (my room) was very good with mountains in the background. Hired bikes and went exploring.
Hotel is opposite the beach, which is poor: a bit stony and difficult to get into the sea (steep drop off and one big wave) but ok once in. 5 Euros for a sun lounger and 5 more for a parasol. Cost us 30 Euros to sit on the beach. No wonder it was empty. It's free in the hotel so we stayed by the hotel pool after that.
Easy link to Barcelona by train.More
