Clientele: Gay Friendly
We can't introduce you to the gay friendly Platja d'Or Hotel without first mentioning its absolutely perfect location. Even Lewis Hamilton has never found himself in a pole position like this and, given that the hotel's name translates as Beach of Gold, you can probably work out that the Platja d'Or finds itself overlooking Sitges' main beach. A half-decent pair of tax free binoculars from the airport (or opera glasses if you're feeling on the camp side) will allow you to check out the tanning totty on the sands, but that last comment is for illustration purposes only as we couldn't possibly encourage voyeurism.
The wonderful location of the Platja d'Or - right opposite the main beach and close to all the town's hottest hotspots - is one of the main reasons why this hotel is so incredibly popular.
That said, there's more than the Platja d'Or's location to fire your enthusiasm: there are two bars, a very lovely roof terrace with gorgeous views and a Spanish style restaurant where you'll have your breakfast if you can be bothered to drag yourself out of your bed. Incidentally, breakfast here is excellent offering a great choice of hot and cold options for even the hungriest bunny and, for those of you who prefer a half board tariff, just drop us a line and we'll give you a quotation.
The fifth floor bar ensures that you'll never go thirsty, and you can't fail to enjoy lapping up the glorious views from the hotel's roof terrace before, perhaps, doing a circuit or two of the pool or chilling out on a complimentary sunbed.
Each of the hotel's 59 rooms comprises twin beds (no doubles, sorry), double glazing, air conditioning, an ensuite bathroom and satellite TV, while singles can choose to receive a twin for sole use rather than a single room.
You can choose between a room with a view of the sea or one with a view of the pool but, whichever you decide to choose, try to remember that not all of them have balconies. It probably goes without saying that it's those rooms with a balcony which sell out first, so try to book as early as you can if a balcony is particularly important to you.
