We (three adults) stayed in this apartment for two nights during our travels through Spain. We deliberately chose a location South of Barcelona as we were heading South to Granada after our stay.
Our main aim was to see the famous Gaudi architecture.
We were travelling by car so the location being so far South of Barcelona was not an issue.
Barcelona is a very large city and, despite the map on the web site, we got lost and found overselves on the side road not the freeway.
As we were fighting late afternoon traffic we became victims of the slash the tyre brigade (yes it does happen) and had to stop to change the tyre in very frightening circumstances I will not elaborate on here.
We eventually found our way to the apartment and the very nice man at reception (who spoke very good English) helped us find a tyre repair shop for the next day. We parked our car in the underground garage (operated by an electronic key for the gate and garage), settled in to the apartment and went out looking for dinner.
There is plenty of choice on the Passeig Maratim. This is a tourist area in high summer and you can choose from many different types of cuisine. We picked a lovely Japanese restaurant right next door.
The apartment had a cooktop, refridgerator but not enough utensils to do your own cooking. Still we managed to do so on the second night.
There was a supermarket right next door as well as a butcher up the road. There were no cleaning products provided so we did the best we could with water and a sponge.
The apartment was quiet but small for three (our daughter slept on the uncomfortable sofa bed) but the beds in our room were also uncomfortable and covered in plastic so all night, as we turned over, there was this subtle creaking. There is an ADSL line.
The experience in Barcelona put us off visiting the Gaudi architecture so I cannot comment on that. The beach is minutes away so I expect this would be ahandy location for families wishing to stay close by.
