I am usually a budget traveler, but it was my sister's birthday, so we decided to splurge.
This hotel was well worth it, in every way. The thing that impressed me the most was the bottle of champagne on ice and a happy birthday card to my sister when we arrived home after a day of site-seeing. It was so kind and unexpected. It truly is the little things that make you love a hotel!
Everything else that everyone else is saying is true - amazing staff, great rooms, wonderful views, awesome pools ...etc etc etc
The only bad thing is La Rambla at night ..... their are aggressive prostitutes on the street after midnight. Be careful when coming home late, they will get very touchy!!! -- But this is not the fault of the hotel, just a warning to future guests to be aware!
