We arrived at approx 1am and check in could not have been easier, we handed over passports, given room key and off we went, everything else waited until morning. The transfer is approx an hour from Barcelona airport, we were lucky enough to be the first drop off. Rooms are very basic, two... More

Internet is not so good and some of the expected services were additionally charged (refrigirator, safe, wifi).. otherwise great place. Reasturant was suprisingly good, especially dinner. Open pool is also nice.

First time at this hotel after staying at others for 10 years and wish we had tried it earlier. Couldn't fault the food or service from any of the staff as although some only spoke little english(we were in Spain) always did their best to help and were always polite and greeted you whenever they saw you. Entertainment every night... More

Room was family room for 2+1, nothing special, clean, but not very spacious. Ia like that had to pay for the use of minibar 16€/week and it didn't get even get cold... More
