The LaVida rooms were very clean and comfortable. They have a glass shower so if you're sharing with a friend there isn't much privacy. The hotel is a short 8-10 min walk to the main PGA Catalunya resort and Pro-Shop, but staff are happy to arrange a buggy type shuttle service for you. Staff were only too happy to help out. However, it should be noted that the swimming pool (it's actually too small to be called a swimming pool) in the LaVida resort is very small and that the only bar/restaurant there closes at 10am after breakfast and doesn't open until 7pm. Therefore if you intend to take a dip and relax by the pool, you won't be able to grab a bite or drink until 7pm. If you wish to use the bar/restaurant facilities at the main hotel you can, but they do charge an additional 25 euros per person per day to use their main swimming pool, which is much larger. This was something I wasn't aware of so please bear that in mind when booking. If you intend on swimming and wish to have the option of having something to eat and drink, you're probably better off booking into the main PGA Catalunya resort.
