It is a nice and modern hotel with a good pool area. Close to the beach, but a bit far from the city central. Breakfast is really nice, but the restaurant and roomservice food is horrible. So is the wifi.

I chose this hotel as I often stay in Barcelo hotels for work and generally rate them highly, however I was quite disappointed with this one. The location of the hotel is probably just too far away from town to be convenient, yet the room price would suggest it was right in the 'thick of it', when in fact it... More

A lovely resort not far from the town center in a peaceful neighborhood. Good service. Very helpful tips from the staff regarding trips in the surrounding areas. Excellent breakfast buffet. Clean and spacious rooms.

We left booking a place to stay in San Sebastian late but on the basis of the reviews on this site we booked the Barcelo. Perhaps due to the later booking the price per night averaged 200 euros over the 4 nights. We were very disappointed with the room. The decor is grey, there was mold on the bathroom ceiling... More

Lovely 3 bedroomed suite, they couldn't find our reservation but made up for it with a great suite. The pool area is fabulous and breakfast and cocktails were brilliant. Dinner wasn't great but served us right for being too lazy to go out.

The Barcelo Costa Vasca is up the hill from downtown San Sebastian. The hotel was a mixed bag. The rooms are fine. The pool is great. There were very strict rules about pool towels and which way you could walk to and from the pool which seemed odd for a vacation place. There was a shuttle service to the beach... More

Nice modern hotel out of main tourist attraction of San Sebastian. Rooms are modern and large above average, with nice bathroom. The breakfast buffet is quite good. Travel to the Barri Viejo can be done by bus stopping right infront, or walking next to the beach, about 35 minutes. Outside parking is available.

Great hotel, lovely pool area. Staff friendly and very helpful. Nice location 15/20 minute walk along the beach promenade to old town, courtesy bus which finishes at 8.30pm. Bit of an uphill walk on way back! Would recommend if you want somewhere a little quieter than the old town.

I reserved 5 rooms for a birthday celebration which included my family via booking.com. I requested a room nearby to the children and was absolutely delighted with the interlocking rooms allocated. The beds were extremely comfortable and the vast walk-in shower had a big tick from all. The very efficient (and accommodating) free shuttle service was welcome for the short... More
