H-Top Royal Star Hotel in Lloret de Mar (Spain) - Hotel Review

Our stay at Lloret de Mar (Spain) was in the H-Top Royal Star which is a part of the H-Top Hotels Group. We had booked an all inclusive package with them. We were a bit sceptical about it, but our weeks stay there was quite enjoyable and comfortable.

When you check-in you are handed the room keys and a "All-inclusive" card (if you had booked an all inclusive package). The card is like a photo ID card and allows you unlimited use of the bar. However the card only allows you to order local brands, cold drinks, beer and draught. If you need any brand not listed in the list, you need to pay a supplement. Free cocktails are limited to the "cocktail of the day". The card also allows you to use facilities like snack bar, swimming pool and restaurants in other H-top hotels in the vicinity until 7pm.

The Hotel has a range of facilities
- Indoor swimming pool
- Jacuzzis
- Sauna and Steam room
- Gym
- Mini Club
- Conference room
- A telivision lounge
- Luggage room
- 2 swimming pools
- 2 bars
- A games room
- Childrens play park

Since ours was an all inclusive package, even the excursions were taken care by our travel agent. However if you are travelling on your own and wish to do any sight-seeing then there a wide range of options offered by the hotel - day/night time excursions, visit to theme parks, and shows. You can enquire at the reception about this.

If you are heading out for a day excursion and will not be having your lunch in the hotel, you can inform the hotel the previous night and they will arrange for a packed lunch for you.

Daily late evening entertainment is organised in the hotel. The schedule is put up on the notice board and you can plan your day accordingly.

The rooms are spacious and well ventilated. There is a TV in each room, but if you need the remote control for the TV you need to pay 20 Euro deposit for it. It is refundable when you return the remote.

For guests on all inclusive packages, all meals are provided in the restaurant on the ground floor. Its normally a buffet meal. I felt that food was a bit of a let down as there was a limited choice for vegeterians. Even the non-vegeterians were not too happy with some of their dishes. A good range of salads though. And a decent selection of deserts daily.

Overall, for the price that we paid, we were quite pleased with the service. The hotel is just 10 minutes from the Lloret beach, so that was also a good point. The Modernist Cemetery is just a couple of minutes walk from the hotel.
