The hotel is on a hill far outside Barcelona. You can see the sea but can't walk there, i.e. need to take a taxi wherever you may want to go.
The facilities such as swimming pool are very nice and belie the bad state of the rooms. Rooms are not well maintained, furniture is falling apart (literally), not very clean, but worst of all, the hotel is effectively between a very loud highway and a stone pit with trucks moving all day long. So hardly a place for vacations.
The wifi works, except not in the rooms. There are fixed internet outlets in the rooms but reception told me they are defunct.
Reception is all but helpful, as is staff in general, this property needs a new owner/management.
So all in all, a bad experience, you can do much better in and around Barcelona!
