We stayed for a week and We left frustrated and disappointed. On arrival there was a cigarette left on the floor from a previous guest and rips in the bedding, I had to call multiple times for this to be sorted and for the room to be cleaned. Not only that, but for the whole stay electricity in the room did not work, constantly losing power, affecting the lights, mini bar and air con. We relentlessly asked for this to be fixed but to our disappointment, no one could solve the issue. When we tried to escape the room, we were met with more disappointment in the Eclipse bar which had a leaking roof, seats with rips in and peeling leather. I would NOT recommend, and would suggest the hotel undergoes some serious maintenance and upgrades.

It’s a no for me. When one of our party got Covid we asked to modify the booking. Not cancel but modify to another date. We got the usual ‘there is nothing we can do…’ when in reality they could easily resell the room or just charge one night… An excellent brand… never again

Grelt hotel if: you 25 years female with ski jump lips, bleached hair and artificial breasts. Male, like Arthur from Peaky Blinders. Marriot has created a hotel that could just as well be in Magaluf, mega loud club music blasted out over the pool area all day, and in the evening the place was opened for outsiders, to transform the hotel into a big noisy Dance club. Due to the noise, the hotel's other pool was occupied by the families with children, so it was quite impossible to just find the smallest peaceful spot. There was simply music pollution everywhere, elevator, fitness center, bars and restaurants. The room itself was worn, the shower door could not open, the USB plug was defective, etc. Reported it but no response from the hotel. why have a minibar if it is only 10% full. On the positive note, the breakfast was just over passed.

This hotel is linked to the Marriott hotel, being a platinum elite member stays over 50 nights a year at the Marriott hotels. i booked this hotel as i was staying at the W properties. this hotel impressed me until they tried to play games for some reason, i am guessing not to add my points.if you are looking for a hotel saying yes to everything else you expect, dot pay for something not worth staying/ also being a platinum Benvoy member and stayed at the W, they didn't let me to go to the other pool and refused to let us to go to the tio floor, saying there is a charge not sure if this hotel has a manager. my guess is not the wat the propety going rund

I had the privileged to stay for 2 nights at the W in Barcelona in the context of a business convention, and I was indeed privileged. The hotel is wonderful ; each room enjoys a stunning view on the sea side. Rooms are cosy, spacious, with all possible amenities. Yet no intimacy in the room I had - the bathroom is literaly in the room. So do not plan on sharing with someone you are not ready to share everything with.

They didn’t abide by their own dress code. Denied entry for wearing footwear that met the code. Avoid at all costs. Unreasonable and sexist. Would not recommend to friends or family. If you want a fun night don’t go here. Apparently I have to write 200 words so hopefully this works

Wasn’t he best. This place was pretty awful. The drinks were watered down. The bar staff were rude and music was awful. Wouldn’t recommend to friends or family. On top of that 1 of our friends was turned away for wearing sandals yet on the dress code it wasn’t called out as an issue.

This place has all the best parties and is in a great location right by a beautiful beach. The food could use improving but the vibes and drinks were amazing. If you want a party this is the place to be. On Sunday nights they have House/Electronic music parties and the hotel balcony fills with party-goers. If you stay at the hotel you get guaranteed entrance and access.
