Although its attiring architecture, pool and location in a stylish upscale neighborhood on the seashore, service is veeeery poor, with an unpleasant attitude. Only one person at the frontdesk, one at the bar. Rin the bell to be assisted.wifi under payment in a business hotel? No spa facilities (two minutes walking luxurious health club with no agreement) for a vacation... More

This hotel is just OK, and would not recommend for more than one night. My wife and I stayed here before an early morning flight to the airport, and were underwhelmed. The Good: +Proximity to the airport +Location on the beach and pool looked nice (though too cold to enjoy this time of year) The Bad: +Front desk staff not... More

I went there for a business trip in December and wish it was more than 3 days. Great view from the room - right at the sea. There’s also an outside swimming pool and a bar near to it. There was clean, there was nice, there was spacious. Rooms were very well equipped. I mean everything seems “just enough” and... More

This hotel was conveniently located on the beach with some nice little places to eat near by. Customer service was great. Beach and pool area were nice. I am only able to put this year in as date of travel, however we went a year ago.

This hotel is a small property but big on customer service. The desk agent was awesome in helping arrange taxis for airport and also for our trip back into Barca to tour. Price was excellent, quality of service outstanding. Amenities were great...just wish work hadn't interfered with my enjoying them! I have no complaints and would highly recommend.

Stayed near the airport our last night recently, using Marriott points. Expected to pay ca $20 each for parking and wifi. Instead, we were upgraded to an ocean front room with a wonderful view, given free wifi and found it easy to park on the street ( off season). Very nice clean new room. Staff recommended an excellent nearby restaurant,... More

Great hotel just outside of busy Barcelona. Clean with friendly staff. Would recommend as it has a beach which is not busy but clean. It's close to the airport and close enough to drive into Barcelona. All round very good.

We stayed here because of its access to the airport but would return because of the nice access to a quiet beach. There were few other guests so it might be different if there were more people but for us it was a great quiet last stop before flying out. Enjoyed drinks by the pool (bar had enough choices for...

The AC Hotel Gava Mar is located on the outskirts of Barcelona. There is bus access close to the hotel and it takes about 20-30 minutes to reach the city center by public bus.
