Located on the Costa Dorada to the south of Barcelona, La Pineda is a popular beach resort with plenty to offer families seeking a sun-drenched Spanish vacation. There are plenty of high quality hotels and apartments on offer in La Pineda to choose from, stretching from larger sea-front hotels to quieter back-street pensions, allowing every visitor to choose the perfect venue for their holiday escape. One of the finest hotels in La Pineda is the Apartamentos Pineda Park – a purpose built complex near the Aquapolis Theme Park with a strong reputation for service and cleanliness and a range of great leisure activities. The bus stop to Tarragona or Barcelona is also a short walk away, making it a superb option for savvy city break fans. Then there are more homely selections, like the family run Punta Prima, which has a secluded pool and wonderful sea views, and will cater for any family's holiday needs in style. But for others, a self-catering apartment in La Pineda might be just right, and here there are many to choose from. There are numerous apartment complexes in La Pineda with large pools and spacious grounds such as CYE Marina, which also links travellers up with watersports and the attractions of the town beach.
La Pineda is famous for two things – its long, sandy and clean beach, and the excitement on offer at Aquapolis, a water-based theme park. Aquapolis is a sprawling site which offers slides, wave pools, sun loungers, places to eat, and even a well-run dolphinarium. It's a great location for a sunny summer afternoon. But La Pineda is also at the heart of the Costa Dorada. The Costa Dorada has a string of gorgeous beaches, and is less crowded than the Costa Brava, while also putting Barcelona within easy reach. Barcelona may boast superb museums, architectural delights and great nightlife, but the Costa Dorada also has its attractions such as the Gaudi Museum in Reus. A hotel or apartment in La Pineda places visitors at the centre of this beautiful, bustling coast, making it a superb destination for families and groups of friends alike.
