There are 2 types of people, stuck up 10 bob millionaire or normal people, for an average joey it's a fantastic place, no large groups here so very family friendly, entertainment staff we're brilliant, would be nice for music to be played by the pool in the day. Rooms were amazing, pools cleaned everyday and staff we're amazing. Aircon and... More

Stayed here for a week with some friends. Upon our arrival (1:30am) we were greeted with "I need passports" by a very unhelpful receptionist who felt the need to make it clear just how inconvenient our checking in at that time was! We then found our room to only have 2 single beds made up - despite having already told... More

Hotel was lovely, we had a huge room with a large sun terrace with loungers and gazebo. We were half board but found the food was not 5 star, so after the first few days of our 2 week holiday we ate our meals at outside restaurants and pubs. wish we had saved £200 each by booking self catering.

We stayed for a week at the Barcelona Royal Beach. It was an enjoyable stay, and most of the negative points were things not really down to the hotel, I.e. 2 days overcast weather, very bad flight times with charter provider Thomson. Hotel Hotel has 5 buildings - the main one has all facilities and standard hotel rooms and suites.... More

I wanted to leave a very honest review as I feel the hotel and staff will benefit from some of these comments, as well as people considering booking this hotel. Both myself and my partner (in our early 30's) thoroughly enjoy staying at 5* hotels – the promise of luxury, great food, lovely staff and a welcoming reception. This hotel,... More
