Aparthotels are Spain's version of the suite hotels (Hilton’s Embassy Suites, Marriott’s Residence Inns, etc) in the USA. As such, they normally offer a living room with small kitchen area and a separate bedroom. When the Mediterráneo was built, all its accommodation was like this; but the management has realised that a two-room apartment doesn't generate as much income as two ordinary hotel rooms and has set about converting around a third of its accommodation accordingly. If you want an apartment, make sure that's what you book. The Aparthotel name no longer accurately describes all the accommodation at the Mediterráneo, so care is required, particularly if you don't book directly with the hotel. The usual hotel booking websites don't make this clear (as I found to my cost!). The bedrooms, though nicely finished, are relatively small and not really equipped to four-star standard - nowhere comfortable to sit other than the bed, for example. If you want a hotel room (as against an apartment) in Sitges, you can do better.
Half the accommodation - including most of the bedrooms (again, as against the apartments) - faces the main Avenida de Sofia. When the (very disruptive) roadworks are finished (I'd estimate late 2006/early 2007) this will revert to being the main link between the town's ring road and the beach area. It's busy from early in the day until late into the evening (and through the night at weekends) and generates a fair amount of noise which the single-glazed windows of the hotel do not altogether screen out. Add to this a pizza restaurant, open till late and popular (till late) with Spanish families, downstairs on the terrace of the hotel and you do not have a recipe for a quiet time. If you plan to stay at the Mediterráneo, ask for an apartment (or, if you must, a room) that doesn't face the road, as these are much quieter.
