The hotel was nice. Right across from the beach. Rooms were modern. Breakfast was good. But a few things just didn't sit well with us. First, the bar at the pool only served beer. We were looking forward to some bloody Mary's or a pina colada. The pool didn't seem very clean. Not sure if it was the fact that... More

We booked this hotel due to the proximity to barcelona's airport (was 10 minute ride in traffic) as we were leaving two days after to ibiza. Staff were friendly, the hotel was clean and modern. The beach was right after the hotel's private pool, which is very practical. The resto/bar on the beach is very reasonable and the food is... More

Very nice property away from the city. steps from beach and not far from transit. Loved the little shops that were within walking distance as well.

I would expect more from a marriott The location is great (right on the beach and set in a large garden). The room was ok but no more than that. Breakfast was decent but with an inedible Spanish tortilla. I suppose paying €160 approx in August to be in a beachfront hotel is reasonable, but overall this hotel is nothing... More

Good hotel with pool and beach. Rooms are good and hotel has a good restaurant. If you have a early flight this hotel is close to the airport (10 minutes) but they do not offer Transfer but can call a taxi. Good hotel but nothing special. Service was ok but also here nothing special.

Beautiful area by the sea, and very friendly helpfull staff. No coffee in the room, you have to call roomservice. The reason we booked at this hotel was because it seemed like a business hotel. It was, but still no room to take a swim in the pool because of 3,4 families with kids. It was to noisy to get... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights in June 2015. We enjoyed our stay as the hotel is located just by the beach and has a good sized pool and gardens. Breakfast was good, with lots of variety. We liked the outside eating/drinking area and the relaxed atmosphere at the hotel. The only down side is that there are... More

We stayed at the AC Hotel Gava Mar at the end of a 3 week vacation to France and Spain. The hotel is in a fairly residential area; however, there are quite a few good restaurants within easy walking distance if you don't have a car. The hotel is about 7 miles from the airport and costs about 20 Euros... More

Very handy as only a 10-15 min cab ride from the airport at a cost of circa €20. It's at least 30 mins from Barcelona city center depending on the time of day / traffic. As I was going back at night - it cost €40 to get back to the hotel late at night (presumably there is a premium... More

While this is close to the airport, it is a minimum 20 euro cab ride and the hotel does not offer an airport shuttle, which is disappointing to have to spend that amount of money for a 10 minute ride. We have Marriott status and had to ask for free access to the internet. Unfortunately, the internet did not end... More
