So you will be in the heart of the action, in a constant hustle and bustle if you choose to book your room or stay in Lloret de Mar.

On the other hand, Lloret de Mar town centre is a paradise for you if you go alone or with friends, if you're young or single and partying: in May, for example, the famous Springbreak, an open-air festival is held, with a programme of parties, beach, dancefloor, alcohol (and watch out, drugs and pickpocketing too). In other words, the prices of hotels where to stay in Lloret de Mar can skyrocket.
