“The photos don't do this justice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

This place is SO beautiful - an all inclusive resort with 5 pools - super clean, great service, and the views are just remarkable. It's not ON the beach - but it overlooks the Sea and the town is to your left. Honestly, for the price, this place is remarkable. It's about 15 minutes from the town, so it's best to rent a car if you stay here, although I hear they have a shuttle that runs to the beach and back every hour. Get a sea view for sure.

Room Tip: get a sea view for sure

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Hotel is calm and spacious, front desk and lobby area impressive on arrival. Staff are generally very helpful and pleasant. Bedrooms are very nice and spacious. Sea views rooms are lovely and quiet. Pools are terrific and numerous, with great selection of different sun loungers. Found the pools quite cold at the beginning of the holiday but they had heated up sufficiently by end of July. Breakfast very nice but fixed price dinner very expensive as €42 per head if children are over 11 years - about €180 for four to include drinks which is not worth it. Would recommend b & b only as there are numerous lovely restaurants in Sitgies which is only a €10 taxi ride away. Be prepared to travel outside hotel by car or taxi - nothing in walking distance. The fine dinning restaurant is very good and cheaper as we were only having main course and dessert. They serve a tasty and attractive apperative which is sufficient as a starter. If you are looking for loud, hectic entertainment with lots of other people don't go here. If you are looking for space, relaxation and lots of activities to entertain the kids, this is the place for you. The resort quietens down totally by 10.30 pm. Good base to explore Barcelona without the noise and hectic pace of the city - about 50 minutes drive into city centre. Loved this place and would certainly come back.

Room Tip: Sea view towards end of pool area.

The Dolce Sitges is a possibility unfulfilled. The hotel itself -- the rooms, the pool, the outside dining area -- is amazing. Simply gorgeous. Far and away the best in the Sitges area.

Then it all goes downhill very quickly.

We both arrived and departed to a very harried and chaotic front desk staff, not a great impression on guests.
Add to that, when we checked in, we asked to schedule a taxi to take us to the airport the following day. The manager on duty said that was not necessary as there are taxis lined up at the hotel, waiting to take guests where they needed to go. I told him that it was important, as we didn't plan to have a lot of extra time. He said no problem. Wanna guess whether it was a problem?
The next day there were no taxis anywhere to be seen, the manager said that there were also no taxis available in Sitges, but that we could be put on some sort of a wait list. A 45-minute wait stressed us to the max and had us making our flight be the skin of our teeth.

As to the food. Ugh. I've simply never seen such a massive disconnect between the quality of a hotel and the standard of its food. Never.
At lunch the first day, there were out of much of the food on the menu. We sort of just overlooked that since we weren't all that hungry anyway. But dinner was a different matter altogether.
We went to their "Indian buffet" only to find not one scrap of Indian food of any sort, unless you count spaghetti, raviolis or mashed potatoes. And horrible tasting versions of all of those.
We happened to have a waiter of Indian extraction that night by coincidence and he confirmed that the Indian buffet in fact featured no Indian food whatsoever. I just don't understand that.
The outside eating area was lovely though, so there's that. They also ended up bringing us food from another restaurant which was much better. Not great, but better.

Given that the Dolce Sitges is removed from the town of Sitges, it is imperative that they have decent food to eat. Going into town is a chore. Not to mention that nice hotels have good food. For what you are paying at the Dolce Sitges that is not much to ask.

Until that problem is solved I can not recommend this hotel. Such a shame because lounging by the pool with a drink is an amazing treat. Just don't come hungry.

We would like to thank you for trusting Dolce Sitges for your stay as well as for reflecting in Tripadvisor your feelings around your experience as our Guest: despite we are happy to read your comments honouring our hotel and your positive remarks related to the location, our property design, the relax and calmness, our rooms, the pool area, that we really appreciate, we regret you cannot recommend us because of the challenges with your taxi departure and with the food served at the Hindu themed night.
We are sorry for the taxi inconveniences and the stress created: your demand was quite logical and we were not at the level you expected (despite that what happened was unusual, but it cannot be used as an excuse).
And additionally, we would like to inform you that the food offer at nights is made of: our fine dining Restaurant Esmarris; the light menu of Bar Malvasia and Alea Lounge chill-out; and our Verema Restaurant themed nights -1 different every night of the week- with buffet and barbecue with a food set price and 50% discount on the food set price for children from 4 to 11 featuring over 60 option dishes, including some which are not themed so we can fulfil the needs of those guests attending the dinner with Family and/or friends that are looking for some additional instead of the theme.
Again, we apologize for the inconveniences, we thank you for this visit and for sharing your comments with other future visitors and we look forward to your next occasion to welcoming you again at Dolce Sitges.

Just got back from a weeks stay, hotel was very nice, well designed with good size rooms and bathrooms. Pool area lovely, can get a bit busy, but they have a great selection of sun beds. The service was excellent, we found all the staff very helpful and nothing was a problem. Went to their main restaurant on the first night, this was a set price, we bought drinks before in the bar before so only had bottled water with our meal, it cost 170 Euros for 4 people, not worth it. We was disappointed with the high prices charged in the hotel, one Vodka & Coke, 15 Euros (I was asked what Vodka I wanted, I said a less expensive one) The bar areas dose not justify 15 Euros, the Sky Bar in town and Pasha night club charged us 10 Euros for the same drink. We were told by our taxi company that dropped us off, he could not take us back to the airport as the hotel had a preferred taxi company (taxi from Barcelona airport to Dolce 68 Euros, taxi back (booked by hotel 80 Euros) this was the same from the hotel to town, taxi back was cheeper every time (11 out 9 back)

Regarding the taxi services, those taxis driving you from Barcelona airport to Sitges are not allowed by Catalan laws to lift clients in Sitges but only in Barcelona Metropolitan area (which ends in Castelldefels). The way back to the airport can only be done with Sitges taxis (with very similar cost to Barcelona taxis) and by limo service: both options are available at the property with no Hotel preferences but for Guest’s needs. And additionally, we would like to inform you that prices for every trip are fixed by taxi companies or taxi drivers with no influence at all (and not commissioned) from the hotel.
Again, we thank you for this visit and for sharing your comments with other future visitors and we look forward to your next occasion to welcoming you again at Dolce Sitges.

Starting from the trip up to the hotel to the lobby and beyond, what an amazing place. The rooms are ridiculous and extremely high-end. The restaurant was one of the best we went to on our trip. Highly recommend.

This is a calm family hotel, with he best pools in Sitges. Great for business meetings or family holidays. About 8-10 euro cab ride from city center - very expensive cabs in Sitges so we aware..

Rooms are very nice, most of them with a nice sea view.
