“Excellent Concierge Service!”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

We were on a Europe trip and we booked this hotel on the outskirts of Barcelona to be able to enjoy the relaxing beach away from the city crowds, and yet be able to visit the city every day for 4 days. Unfortunately when we get to the hotel they informed us that we could not stay the whole 4 days because the next day the hotel was booked for a corporate event and they did a buyout. Well.....the best thing that happened to us! Instead of leaving us on our own luck, the concierges, specially Mr Martin, transferred us to Le Meridien on 111 La Rambla for the next two days and then the last day they upgraded our room to a beach front suite!!! Wow!!!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
We were able to be relaxed at the beach and enjoy the city of Barelona as well. I strongly recommend this hotel and appreciate all their personnel's attention to us! Amazing! :) thank you Martin!!!!

We stayed at the Meridien Ra four five nights in late April. The hotel is a former sanatorium for boys with TB (1920s) then lay dormant for a while before being picked up by the Meridien. There are pictures of the former sanatorium throughout the building and there is a book about the building in each guest room. It is a large, rambling, spacious affair right on the ocean. The hotel is located in a El Vendrell, a resort/seaside village with shops, restaurants and lots of beach.

The hotel has a very good fitness area and a spa. The spa consists of a pool with various stations-mostly water shooting out at you from various angles and heights. They also do all sorts of treatments. My wife had one and thought it very good. There is a very nice outdoor pool (25 metres approx.) that is great for swimming laps. You can also rent bikes from the hotel and cycle along the boardwalk for an hour or so.

The hotel has a fabulous staff. Don't think I've ever had such good service. We were presented with a glass of cava when we checked in. The front desk, led by multi lingual Martin from Holland, is very professional and helpful. But everyone we encourntered, from the lady we rented bikes from to the cleaning staff was friendly, courteous and welcoming. When we asked the front desk for information about getting to the airport they couldn't have been more thorough and helpful.

We ate four times at the hotel. I had made a list of recommended local restaurants (gleaned from tripadvisor) and on our second night we tried one of them and while it was fine it did not compare to the hotel so we decided to dine in the rest of the time. The food in the hotel is really good and the service and ambience are outstanding. We had a couple of terrific waiters, Stephen from London and Mauricio from Chile. They were professional, helpful and charming and helped make every meal a memorable experience. One night my wife was not feeling very well and asked if she could have some grilled fish and steamed vegetables. No problem. The fish in the Ra was outstanding. It is slightly pricier than local restaurants but the difference in quality of food and in service was extreme.

Breakfast is a treat. We ate outside overlooking the beach and sea and the food selection was excellent.

Our room was really nice, spacious with a view of the ocean and a very comfortable bed.

We have stayed in many outstanding hotels but would have to say that the Ra Meridien is one of our all time favourites.

Room Tip: Think they all have partial ocean view.

Very close from Barcelona city, this is the perfect place for relaxing with your couple or friends. The beach is beautiful and clean and is just a few steps from the hotel. The Spa is a must and you should try an Ayurveda massage to have a complete experience, together with the D.O. restaurant.

Stayed at this hotel for my wife's 30th birthday. It was a lovely hotel, having a nice feeling of both modern and historic.

The spa facilities were very good and all the staff were very attentive, polite and friendly.

I have since recommended this hotel to friends in the UK as a great European break destination. close enough to the lovely Barcelona city and the airport yet far enough away to be able to relax and unwind.

We will be staying there again in the future as soon as the chance arises!

This beautiful old building is now a lovely spa resort. Although El Vendrel is not a hot spot by most standards, this spa and restaurant are worth of few day's relaxation. The beach is wide, clean and picturesque.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the original building, right on the beach.

Let me start by saying that the hotel was sort of difficult to get to, but we managed after a few minutes of going around. So be patient if you are driving

The property is very beautiful and massive, as it was an old hospital and was beautifully renovated, the check-in was very nice and friendly, we were welcome with a glass of the local cava!

We were upgraded to a wonderful duplex suite over looking tne ocean, way to go recognizing loyal SPG members. Our room had a great balcony in which you can have a nice drink in the evenings and looking over the Med ocean, the room was very nice and modern, comfy bed and housekeeping was up to standards.

The food was amazing, we had a great buffet dinner and was filled with variety of fish and salads, we really enjoyed it!

The only downside was the beach-bar-restaurant it somehow was caothic and the food was terrible. The staff were sort of upset with eachother and comstantly yelling at the cook who was getting most of the orders either wrong or just badly cooked. I ordered a burger and they even managed to mess that up.

Besides that the location is nice, right at the beach and you can find amazing local restaurants just around the corner, go and venture a bit, and don't be affraid to try the local food.

The SPA was very very nice, we had a couples massage and they really did a great job!

Over all was a great experience, we left rested and happy, I hope they manage to better the quality of the beach bar and the food, but we will definitely return.
