We throughly enjoyed our 10 day stay in Best Sol Dor and La Pineda. An excellent 3 star hotel, a pleasant resort, not overcrowded with a beautiful beach which is only a few minutes walk from the hotel.
When we first arrived at the hotel we were disappointed as we were put in a very noisy room over the entertainment area and pool. But the staff were very helpful we we were moved to another room on the other side of the hotel which was fine. Although beautifully clean and maintained, the rooms in the older block could do with updating. We had a musty smell in our room!
The pool was great and again beautifully clean, there is a life guard on duty and was attentive in not allowing inflatables in the pool, but the children could bomb and chuck each other in, which sometimes was very dangerous.
The restaurant was great with a good selection of food and very plentiful! There can be queing by the grill for the freshly cooked food, but it was lovely. You also have time your arrival to avoid the queue into the restaurant, which we always seemed to manage!
The hotel is good location for aquapolis water park and Porta Aventura and the water park which are all excellent trips. We also went on two trips to Barcelona organised through Bus Plana (found on the main promenade). We went on the Barcelona panoramic and Nou camp/magic fountains trips. They were well organised and cheaper and easier than trying to do it independantly.
We found there was a good mix of nationalities and the children made friends with other English children.
The evening entertainment was a bit hit and mix, but the animation team worked really hard, were not in your faces and helped to make an excellent atmosphere.
All in all we had an excellent break, enjoyed our food and was very happy and would go back again.
