We loved our recent stay at the W Hotel and would definitely recommend you stay here if you want a 5* beach resort in a city. The accommodation is great as you would imagine but I agree with another contributor the red walls in the corridors leading to the rooms look scruffy and my friends were in a wraparound suite which had stains on the carpet so there are a few areas that need to be looked at. But this is a big busy hotel and the lobby is huge more like an airport departure lounge with great decor and buzzing atmosphere. The best bits for me were the pool area with all white loungers and a great cocktail bar. The beach area is accessed direct from the hotel and this is nice and seems pretty safe with loungers reserved for hotel guests. The sea here
is beautiful it actually glistens with gold glitter (believe me its true !). On the beach front is a selection of really great restaurants but make sure you make a reservation for dinner at he busy times.
If you then want culture a lovely walk along the beach past the marina will take you into town or
hire bikes like we did. Barcelona has it all this is definitely a great destination especially with teenage children.
