The top floor apartment we stayed in here was unbelievable! Really made you say ‘wow’ when you entered, the fixtures and fittings were of a high standard and the view from the balcony of the Sagrada Familia was beautiful. I was here with a group of 9 girls as part of a 4 day trip for my laid back Hen Do. I could not fault the apartment itself, it was spacious – the kitchen was stocked with all the glasses and crockery we could need, there was adequate storage space and it was very clean and tidy. There were plenty of towels and a hairdryer and iron for your use. All I can say is thank God the apartment was amazing because the check in process was absolutely dyer! We arrived at 2pm to be told that we could not check in until 3pm, which was frustrating after our flight but understandable. However, we waited over an hour to put our bags into storage for this time and to actually check in and collect the key for later use... which we were eager to obtain as we noticed a number of groups of people queuing and we wanted to avoid having to do the same again when we returned. We went to the shops nearby to stock up for the weekend and returned at 4.15 to be told our room was still not ready. At this point there were also 3 other families and another group of 8 girls who were in the same position as us and had been waiting hours to get into the apartments they had booked. The reception staff were not helpful, they were very rude and to make matters even more infuriating they seemed unable to deal with one group of guests at a time, and therefore flitted between us but never actually achieving anything or allowing us to check into our rooms and deal with our grievances. We finally insisted we went to our apartment even though it was not ready and found the maids still cleaning it, which was fine by us, we just wanted to start our holiday! Despite this we had a truly amazing 4 days in Barcelona, the hotel is on a quiet street but taxis are easy to flag down and relatively cheap. There are plenty of things to do to keep you busy and you could walk to the marina within about 25 mins. We did not choose these apartments for the ‘pool’ but note it is only knee deep. Thankfully we had no further dealings with the front desk other than to hand the key in at the end of our stay!
