Forget about W standard service levels in Asia: this is Spain, and everything takes its (long) time. The rooms are very nice, with a very good view either facing the city and the beach or facing just the sea (and the port in a closer background). You can open and close the curtains from your bed. facing the window. The... More

Absolutely amazing hotel. Beautiful location on the seaside, fantastic views , easy access from the hotel to the beach. The hotel has two pools. The pools and the beach are serviced by the hotel, so great to relax and hang around. The rooms are spacious and very nice. The Tapas restaurant is pretty expensive, the choice limited compared to restaurants... More

This is an incredible if pricey hotel. The location and pool area is without doubt it's key attributes. I was here on a work trip so unfortunately I didn't get to take much advantage.

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighborhood Profile
Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
