Stayed here for a romantic getaway in August. First impressions of hotel was stunning, very modern clean feel to it. The check in service was quick and very accommodating. Rooms again modern and well set out. Location excellent not rough as a few reviewers have said. My biggest complaint the staff. Ok the breakfast was a joke. A few pastries sitting on the bar with help yourself coffee and a supposedly made to order egg list. We had breakfast twice and were never offered eggs once. Second big complaint was roof terrace service. After a wonder about barca before going to our roomto get ready for dinner we went for a couple of cocktails on the roof terrace ie pool bar. The pool is tiny if that matters to you. The service was shocking wait 15 minutes for someone to take your order, another 15 to make your drinks and walk the 5 feet to serve you then Another wait to payyourbill. So me thinking a tip would go a long way tipped the staff. After my meal in the Michelin starred restaurent that wasn't anything great. We went up to the roof terrace for a couple of cocktails. Same staff, same crap service. All in all loved the hotel, loved barca not to happy with the staff.
