“Just fabulous !!”
Reviewed 3 November 2012 via mobile

This is a lovely hotel set in a great location, right on the beach (request sea view) with all the extras in the room down to robes and chocs on your pillows!!.
The only possible down side is breakfast is extra and there is no room service or restaurant, but there are so many places to eat nearby it wasn't a problem. 2euro bus ride to centre of Barcelona on 94 or 95 bus. Great place to stay !!!!

This hotel was unexpectedly good :-) only travelled to Barcelona for a long weekend with some friends so just wanted somewhere clean with a good beach. The hotel is modern, contempory and well finished (there are a few blemishes but nothing serious), the staff are friendly and very attentive, the location is right on the beach. The beach is sandy and very quiet. Places to eat outside the hotel are plentiful (we never tried to eat in the hotel) but we struggled to find anywhere for anything other than the basics eg Pizza and as for the Chinese & Mexican, in Spain? You can't be serious :-) therefore if you want decent food, go into barcelona it's only 20 minutes away by car.

To finish, I do have a grumble. The airport is not far away, whilst this doesn't directly impact the hotel, you ARE ON THE FLIGHT PATH and on the day we spent on the beach, we had an aircraft of head probably every 5ish minutes and they were right over head and they are noisy. They did stop over night and clearly didn't start again until a reasonable hour in the morning and I'm sure the flight path is only used some of the time, but.....

Room Tip: Top floor (3rd), our room overlooked the sea and had a balcony with sun beds and lots of room

Very nice hotel. We had a room with sea view ! Very rare those days at a reasonable price.
Splendid rooms with all necesities you may require, nice and clean and very helpfull staff.
We enjoyed the beautifull pool, although you're right at the beach. Breakfast was only Spanish, but then so what ? When you're in Rome, act like a Roman and when you're in Barcelone, act like a Catalunian ! Highly recomended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a Sea view.

The hotel is located with a beautiful sea view if you order that. It is located in å quiet area, But only a short walk away from all the restaurants . Unfortunately, the breakfast is expensive and not very good. Go to "breakfast street" 5 minutes walk away, and eat better and cheaper. Do not plan on working while you are there- the Wi-fi is awful!!!
Loved the little things the hotel did- like go to your rom every evening and put a white "carpet" next to your bed, and give you chocolate!! Staff very friendly and helpful.

Lovely hotel on the beautiful wide and clean beach of Castelldefels, just south of Barcelona. Allthough the hotel is under the flightpath to Barcelona Airport, I didn't hear any airplane noise inside at all! The rooms are clean and simply and very functional decorated and have everything you might want. Including lots of different toiletries. The rooms are attended to twice a day, with a turndown service, including chocolates on the pillow, at night. Great roommaids by the way!
The swimingpool is lovely, even though the hotel is on the beach itself. The restaurant is only open for a (Spanish)breakfastbuffet, which is very well looked after. But not to worry for lunch or dinner, there are plenty of restaurants within a few minutes walking distance.The trainsstation is a 5 euro taxi drive away and there is a direct trainservice to places like Sitges and Barcelona.
Would I recommend this hotel: YES! Will I go back? I certainly hope so!

this was seriously probably one of the best if not the best places i have ever stayed! great views of the sea, huge comfy beds, spacious rooms, chocolates on your pillow at night, great looking pool (we just swam in the sea and didn't use it but looked nice!) staff was friendly, free internet, tons of free toiletries (razors, soap, combs, tooth brush - all in the room without asking!). i said to my husband the only thing it was lacking to be perfect was a robe and slippers and sure enough - they were in the closet! really clean and great shower and bathroom. it had a safe which was great. can't remember if there was a fridge - i think so. very safe area and very quiet. great sun screen for security and to keep the hot hot sun out. a little out of the way to get to but well worth it!! i would like to live there!!!! we didn't have the breakfast so not sure if it was good. lots of restaurants and bars nearby. can't say enough how awesome this place was.

Room Tip: lovely sea view room is what we had. not sure what it was actually called - i suspect they are all g...

The hotel didn't look like much from the beach side but inside, it's perfectly set up. Comfortable rooms with all the amenities including robes and slippers and chocolate on your pillow each night. Breakfast buffet was excellent with plenty of choices and good coffee. Huge beach right outside your door and a long board walk for evening strolls. Easy walk to train to get to Barcelona (20 minutes) and you can explore the coastline easily from here too.
