“Really Relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Very comfortable apartment within easy and economical reach of spacious beaches both in Vilanova and in nearby towns. Ideal for visiting Barcelona city, frequent rail service 7.60 euros return fare. Relax after a day in the city in the lovely gardens and pool. Comfortable double bed with quality linens and room cooled by effective air con. that we could hardly hear. Good restaurants and bars a stroll away, or quality on-site restaurant serves 3 courses (on the evening we dined the menu choices although limited were delicious and included steak and an almond cake to die for) with a generous wine included for 15 euros! Kitchen a bit basic, just 2 hob rings and a microwave, but spacious fridge to store lots of goodies, ie cheese and wines after all who wants to slave over a stove on holiday! Good bathroom and plenty of towels refreshed daily. Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Room 302 was perfect for us, included enough of a sea view to see the waves

We stayed at the Atenea for 7 nights. The location is great - 5 mins from the beach and an easy stroll into the town for shopping or eating/drinking out. The apartment was very spacious, well equipped - we cooked a few meals - and cleaned every day. The air conditioning was efficient and quiet, and the free wifi in the room was excellent. The only drawback, which we knew before booking, is that there is no balcony.

We stayed at the Atenea for 4 nights. We choose this accommodation because of its situation near the beach, and its reviews. We were not disappointed. The room was very spacious (the bedroom can be seperated from the livingroom/kitchen. The beds were good. It was cleaned every day. It was only a short stroll from the wide, clean beach (very suitable for children). It has two pools which are well-kept with free sunbeds. The breakfast was very good, the only problem is the breakfast room. It is too small for the accommodation. It is also possible to have dinner there (15 euro), but we preferred to go to the old town (15 minute walk) where there are lots of nice restaurants. The only thing I missed was a balcony. I knew this when I booked, but next time it would be a reason to book something else.

I lived in Vilanova for 6 years and placed colleagues and friends here. I am staying her now in a small apartment for 2. It is brilliant for 36 euros. Clean quiet, great pool area and very good facilities. It is without doubt the best accommodation in Vilanova and Sitges.i have just had dinner for 15 euros with veggie lasagne a great paella desert water and good wine. Well if anyone can find fault with this accommodation at 36 euros then I think you have an issue with yourselves.mnest alum and service I have ever had in this mediocre supposedly tourist focussed country.

Stayed here from 22-28 August with husband and children aged 16 and 14. Overall, basic but good apartment although a little on the small side for us. Had one bedroomed apartment with sofa and z-bed in living area. Aircon was very efficient and apartment well cleaned. The main downside for us was that there was no balcony and would we not stay somewhere without one in future. The pool was nice but a little lacking in atmosphere, maybe because we are used to staying in large buzzing hotels. Always got a sunbed, none were reserved before we went down at 10am. The main plus point is the beach which is fab - plenty of space, shallow warm water, just great. Sunbeds and shade were 7.50 euros each so for the four of us that was 30 euros per day - quite expensive. Added to that was the cost of snacks/drinks from the beach bar which at 2.75 euros for a small beer were not cheap either. On average lunch with a drink set us back about 40 euros and this was just baguettes, pizza or suchlike - of course you could always make your own. I found the restaurants nearby to be not as good as the ones in Sitges so we ate there most nights. It was Fiesta week in Sitges whilst we were there and we enjoyed a fab firework display of over 30 mins. The atmosphere in Sitges is great and the backstreets of the town are a joy to explore - narrow and cobbled, typically Spanish. I think you get what you pay for and for a cheap week away these apartments fit the bill.

Just returned after a 10 night stay with 3 kids (12, 10 and 8). The apartments are comfortable and ours was spacious - we had interconnecting rooms, which worked well (one negative is there are no balconies). Two pools so ideal for kids and the beach is a 2 minute walk, so an ideal location if you are without a car. We used the train from the airport and then back into Barcelona for two nights in the city.
The food in the hotel restaurant was good value and there are lots of restaurants within a few minute's walk. There is a small patisserie in one of the roads behind the hotel (away from the beach) which was great for breakfast items and baguettes. The kitchen area in the apartments is basic but adequate if you are not looking to do much catering! We went into Sitges for the day, which is prettier, but much busier in the high season so the beach was less appealing. The beach at Vilanova is spacious and has a couple of beach bars for snacks.

Room Tip: We had room 303 and 304 on the 3rd floor. One faced the pool and the other overlooked other hotels.

Spent some considerable time looking for convenient, decent value summer sun options for the first week in August and eventually went for this one - it was the first time in a long while that we'd chosen to go away at this time of year, and it will probably be quite a while before we do so again given the universally high cost of flights and attractive accommodation options.

Prime criteria for us was that we wanted an apartment for 2 with pool access fairly close to the sea for about 6 nights, ideally flying out on Friday 2nd August - budget for flights & accommodation of no more than £1k. We live in Cardiff but were in Manchester for the cricket on 1st August so were happy to consider quite a wide range of departure airports, and I was surprised at just how few appealing options we could find, eventually booking flights with Monarch from Manchester to Barcelona for around £200 each, and an apartment here at around £80 per night with a 10% Hotels.com discount.

Access to the apartments via train from the airport & taxi from the rail station was fairly straightforward - its a 15-20 minutes walk without bags. Location was very acceptable - just a few yards up the street from the seafront, and less than 10 minutes walk along it to a wide range of bars and restaurants, although it would have been helpful to have a supermarket a bit closer to hand (10-15 minutes walk). Indeed, Villanova proved to be a very nice base for our break - a living Spanish town rather than a package resort, our arrival coincided with the start of a local Bank Holiday so the restaurant / beach area was reasonably busy, but a bit quieter towards the end of our stay.

At check-in we were told our room would be ready in around 5 minutes, however, this turned out to be more than half an hour, which was a bit frustrating. The apartment itself was nothing flash but it was at least clean / modern, and generally met our basic requirements. It would have been nice to have a balcony but we knew before we booked that these Atenea apartments didn't have balconies, and the only other essential missing was a kettle - fortunately we had packed a small travel kettle so this didn't unduly inconvenience us. Having to pay 4 Euros a day (or 20 Euros a week) with a 10 Euro key deposit to use the safe deposit box was also mildly annoying.

We spent a good portion of our break relaxing in the pool area, which was nice enough if rather busy - no sunbeds immediately available on arrival the first day, and they were generally all taken by around mid-day. A few more parasols wouldn't have gone amiss, either, although there was always at least a small section of the area where you could get some shade. If needs be the option to default to the beach is always available, where you can generally hire sunbeds & parasols for a small fee. We only ate at the complex on the first afternoon, as although the food was decent enough, service was very slow, and there were plenty of other good options nearby.

All in all the apartment worked for us, and we had a very enjoyable stay - I'd have no hesitation in recommending it as a worthwhile option for anyone looking for a convenient self-catering stay on the Med at affordable prices, although I did hear one family of 4 complaining that the size of the apartment & sleeping arrangements were not really suitable for them.
