Hotel Celimar Playa
Ranked #32 of 40 Hotels in Sitges
Reviewed 19 August 2012 via mobile

Exactly what you would expect from a small beach hotel. Awesome location, no frills, clean rooms, and great AC. Very basic breakfast but walking distance to bars and restaurants. Close enough to the beach to use the bathroom will enjoying the rental sun loungers.

Cramped run down rooms and lack of room / hotel amenities usually associated with a 3 star hotel render the Celimar very poor value for money. Basically the Celimar is a 2 star hotel with air conditioning and a good location

The location of Hotel Celimar right on Sitges main beach is great. Parking available at the sister hotel but the very helpful receptionist showed us where we could get street parking near the station and walk back. The building's exterior is lovely - modernismo style, however the room we had with beach view was very small, almost no room for bags.

Once the owners of the Celimar Playa invest in a renovation, this small hotel in the dead-center of the Sitges beach promenade (and inner streets full of shops/nightlife) will be a hot spot.

Unfortunately, the hotel currently operates with the rooms, bed linens and bathrooms that are worn, sandy, dirty, humid. Thankfully, the individual air conditioner in the room worked well, cooling the room and reducing the feeling of hot humid and dirty.

Staff: The staff at Reception desk were friendly and helpful.

Breakfast: The free breakfast is one of the worst I've had in recent years. The coffee is.... please, invest in a coffee machine!!

Again, the location makes the run-down quality almost forgiveable; it was possible to walk back from the nightlife in minutes, or to the beach directly across the street.
However, not a romantic place to bring a loved one; perhaps if I was backpacking with buddies, it would be acceptable.

Room Tip: Ask for seaview.

I guess some people are prone to negativity, judging by a lot of the negative reviews for this hotel. After reading the reviews I was a bit concerned about having selected this hotel, but now that we're here, after 2 nights, I can say that the place is really nice. The staff has been very helpful and nice. The location is GREAT---just steps away from the warm sand of the beach. You can sit at a table in front of the hotel and leisurely enjoy the ocean, the passers-by, and the view of the big white church on the hill. Spectacular!

When we booked the hotel, due to a big convention in town, it was one of only two options in the city. We opted for this one as it was right on the beach.

All I can say is that it was OK. We didn't spend much time in the room or the hotel except to sleep. The room was small, cramped, and a bit tatty. The bathroom was tiny and they never refilled the soap or shampoo. Luckily we always carry a few small bottles with us.

On the positive side, the staff was amazingly helpful. We had an item stolen from us during our travel between Barcelona and Sitges and the desk clerk was an amazing help going above and beyond trying to help us track it down.

Sitges is a beautiful city and I would go back, but I doubt I would stay here again.

Stayed for 10 nights and chose this Hotel as our usual Hotel was fully booked.
On arrival was greeted, placed into a small shaky lift and introduced to our "upgraded" triple room, which we found to be very small especially if you were hoping to share the experience with a third person. Room was clean and cleaned promptly every day at around 10.00am. Don't however expect to lie in after 2.45pm and expect an extended cleaning service as you will find that your room won't be serviced until the next day.
Breakfast was a self service affair, served in a claustrophobic mezzanine over the bar area and this got rather hot especially when the air conditioning wasn't switched on and when more than 10 people arrived for food. Also there was a staircase up to the mezzanine, so mobility could also be a problem for some patrons.
Service in the Bar Area was rather hit and miss and when we did decide to stop for refreshment always ordered and paid for the drinks at the same time, at the bar, in order to avoid those long delays.
The best part of the Hotel is it's location and the reception staff were always polite and helpful. Hotel doesn't have a pool, though the great beaches of Sitges are right across the road.
