Hotel Don Juan is a famous one in Lloret and has been recommended.


In any case, it is recommended to stay within the boundaries of the center, so it will be easier to move around.

Hotel Helios LLoret (about 200€ 5 nights)

Hostal ** Vila de Mar (about 150€ for 5 nights)

Hotel Maria de Mar (about 300€ for 5 night)

Hotel Olympic Evenia (about 250€ for 4 night)

There is the option of the more costly ones or even the apartments if you want. There are a lot of options and the prices as it is low season are fairly good everywhere.

Transport to BLANES/LLORET


Transport from Barcelona and Girona towards the Costa Brava (Blanes, Lloret) is not abundant and it finishes at night at about 22:30h. If you are traveling after or before these times please let us know so we can give you an alternative.

The link of the buses below to inform you about the timetables. You can book online your ticket if you want. However, if you are not 100% you will arrive on time to catch the bus please consider to just buy it on the bus.

  • Bus stops in T1 BCN you have to go straight from the arrivals and go down to where the aerobus stop is, then pass to the other sidewalk and search for “interurbanos”, that’s where the buses to Blanes and Lloret stop.
  • Bus stops in T2 BCN as you go outside, in the area C, turn right and the buses stop in the shaded area. You must ask where it stops as it depends on the traffic.

Girona airport: as you get out of the terminal turn right and go towards the parking lot. Make sure not to get on the first bus is there as it may take you Barcelona with no stops. Make sure to ask the driver if he stops where you want to go (Lloret or Blanes)
