Everything else you read here is pretty accurate. The hotel is well located, it couldn't be any closer to the beach, the breakfasts are plentiful, the staff are friendly, the beds are big and the roof-top bar is a real asset.
What can I add to this that'll help? Of specific interest to me was the fact that transfers from 'El Prat' on Sundays are not that easy by bus (only 4 for the whole day) but the train station and service is a real help to the resort. Don't rely too heavily on the Renfe website though as despite having an English section and a virtual assistant the info it provided was massively unhelpful - there were trains running and plenty of them as I discovered on getting info from the relevant desk at the airport.
As for the Platjador itself I may just be repeating the mantra. The hotel rooms are nice, huge mirrors and big beds (ours was a single and double joined together) with one of the best showers I've found in any hotel. The balconys at the back overlook the pool area and the rear of other properties so it's not that pretty but certainly nothing to put you off. The pool area seems to have been re-furbished recently with a spa pool but it was way too cold to try out in mid-April.
The included breakfast is a relative feast, a massive buffet of practically everything you could wish for. There was no muesli but the presence of a large quantity of cakes more than made up for that. The real difficulty with breakfast was discerning the sweet from the savoury as it was all presented in such a fashion that it was all too easy to mistake a pate for a pudding, a very disconcerting error to make.
The roof-top bar is a real jewel in the crown, very well laid out with a fabulous view over the front and the church. A proper sun-trap too. The only downside was that the beer prices were none too cheap - the selection of imported beers was a nice touch but slightly wallet-damaging. Unfortunately during my stay the 'beer of the day' (at 50% discount) was the same beer every day but this was slightly out-of-season I guess.
I have nothing to compare it to in the area, perhaps it's beyond comparison - the consensus would appear to suggest so.
