When we researched this hotel, we saw pictures on the internet, we read the reviews but, I must say, we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. This hotel is filled with art work, both sculptures and paintings alike, from artists like Josep Subirachs, Josep Puigmartie, and Lorenzo Quinn, to name a few. All of which are friends of the hotel's owner. We saw Mr Puigmartie on 2 different occasions in the hotel. The hotel's atrium is commanded by a Subirachs waterfall within the main staircase. As I write this I realize It all sounds snotty and elitist but, this is not the case, the hotel is warm and inviting, not cold or impersonal.
The hotel is very clean and well run by all appearances. The entire staff we friendly and helpful, including and above all, Erika the hotel art director.
Our room was facing the pool area, from where you could see the beach. The room was large with a big bathroom. The mattress was a little hard and, probably due to be changed. Our room could have used a little decor update from 1996.
Breakfast was complete and excellent, which included Champagne with your orange juice.
Situated right next to the Sitges marina entrance, along the waterfront you will find a vast selection of restaurants. A good beach is just across the road, where you can rent chairs and parasols, you can also eat in the snack bar.
A 20 minute walk along the seafront will get you into "Old" Sitges... Fantastic!
