Great couple escape

We booked a club room but arrived after the club lounge checkin was closed. This caused a slight delay and we weren't informed about some of the facilities available to us ie free electric car hire. Apart from that the stay was fantastic.

Good but not a 5 star experience

The staff ere lovely. They were all very polite and helpful. That said, the concierge gave us an awful recommendation for a restaurant. He claimed it was local, made us a reservation and called us a taxi. When we got there it was full of middle-aged tourists and was really one of the worst meals of my life. It felt like we were conned. Fortunately the rest of the staff were much better. The head of housekeeping overheard me saying that our room was too hot. Not only did she apologize, she went to out room immediately and fixed it and left us a gift of sparkling wine and candy. The room was always well cleaned and the beds turned down each night. Despite all of that I still felt like upper management were trying to "get over". There is a total lack of transparency about the charges. There was no obvious minibar price list-instead the items were hidden in the room-service menu. There was nothing telling you the cost of using the phone. There was a spa menu that listed no prices. The hotel advertises that they have a sauna, but there is no information letting you know whether the sauna is free to hotel guests or if it is an additional charge. It was a bit cold to use the pool, but the hot tub was nice and the outdoor area was very nicely landscaped. It felt like you were in a garden rather than the second floor of a hotel in a city. That said the hammocks were all dirty and stained-terribly off putting. The hotel itself is a little dated, but it does have amazing views and good sized rooms which make up for it. My other complaint was that they had cheap toiletries. That was a big disappointment for me as that is one of the things that I enjoy about a 4 plus star hotel. They had what appeared to be cheap generic toiletries in their own branded bottles. If I had paid full price I would have been disappointed. As part of a package however, it was fine. The location is very good as it is walking distance to several good seafood restaurants. It is also very close to the tourist bus which was excellent.

Geniale Lage am olympischen Hafen

Das Zimmer war sehr geschmackvoll und gross! Die frischen Blumen jeden Tag waren umwerfend schön!! Sämtliche Angestellte sind sehr freundlich! Das einzig Negative, war bei unserem Aufenthalt die Jungs an der Franck's Bar... Sehr lange Wartezeiten bis zur Bestellung und die gewünschten Drinks waren nicht vorhanden; obwohl diese auf der Karte waren. Für uns ein "No go" in einem Hotel dieser Klasse! Die Lage ist PERFEKT am olympischen Hafen gelegen, wo es viele Bars und Restaurants gibt und am Abend die Post abgeht.

Spontaner, erholsamer Kurztrip

Spontane Reise über Ostern für 3 Tage. Sehr schönes Hotel an Strandlage, absolut zu empfehlen. Sehr freundliches und zuvorkommendes Personal. Ich fand einzig den Preis für das Frühstücksbuffet, das leider nicht eingeschlossen war, viel zu teuer.

Barcelona Oster Weekend

Sehr gutes Hotel, Top Lage, sehr freundlicher Service, ein absolutes 5 Sterne Hotel. Negativ ist nur das W-LAN 20 Euro pro Tag kosten würde.

Äusserst zuvorkommendes Personal, fängt schon beim Ausstieg aus dem Taxi an. Speditives Check-In. Lage direkt am Meer mit toller Aussicht und trotzdem nicht zu dezentral gelegen. Zimmer super komfortabel (vor allem Bett) und sauber. Würde jederzeit wieder dieses Hotel wählen, wenn ich in Barcelona bin. Nur empfehlenswert!
