We paid next to nothing for room including breakfast so you can’t expect the Ritz. This is the perfect place to stay if you want no frills, place to get your head down, budget accommodation. The bed was very comfortable. Think it was a memory foam mattress. We had a balcony that faced the sun. Room was a nice size. The shower wasn’t that great. Breakfast choice was limited and parking is difficult. It’s not as bad as other reviews made out but it is a basic budget hotel
This hotel was cheap. We had a balcony. Breakfast was fine (and very simple). The beach was only a few minutes away. It was a rather quiet room. However, there was no functioning WiFi, no hair dryer. The room wasn't clean, the wardrobe was broken. "Free parking" means on-street parking.
When we arrived, the staff was friendly enough and our room had a balcony and was clean. However the age of the place is noticeable and nothing has been updated. Our sink was broken, there was no functioning WiFi and the hot water broke the last night of our stay and leaked down into the floor below us. Also, to let us know that it was leaking they woke us up at 3am to “fix it”. The part that bothered me most though is how cheap it feels. Obviously it’s a bargain hotel, but they don’t bother to clean everyday, give you fresh towels, or change the sheets. As a hotel at the beach, it should be obvious rhat the rooms get very sandy and musty and need to be cleaned but oh well. Anyways, I’d avoid here if you can.
Villa Barbara is a very basic and noisy "hostel", although the room was clean and had all needs covered. Actually, what bothered me the most was the unfriendly staff. The breakfast is fine: cereal, milk, toast, cheese and ham, jams, etc., but I was honestly scared of asking for a spoon after the reaction of the man in charge. The way they treat you feels like they're doing you a favor for hosting you. Not a friendly environment. However, it is close to the beach and all the main streets/shops and bars in Can Picafort.
I give this hotel one point just because of the view. Otherwise it wasn't that nice of a visit.. I understand that it's still wintertime and that the season didn't start yet (and that's why they don't clean at all I guess), but if it says on the receipt that they will atleast change towels 2 times a week, well.. They kind of should. And when we after 6 days without receiving either toiletpaper or new towels, ask for it in the reception nicely, they shouldn't roll their eyes at you, ask you to come back a while later and then forget about it again. After reminding them, Hours later put the towels in the reception for us to get it and then forget the toiletpaper so we have to buy it ourselves.. Nah.. The staff didn't greet when they saw you and bearly even smiled and in general the room was a bit dirty with both alot of dust on the bed + a dead insect and an ant lying on the sheet the first I see when I entered the room. It should defenetely say somewhere that they don't even enter your room to clean not even once if that is the case, which it was. Maybe it's a nice place to stay one night or two, but for more days - atleast in the low season/winterseason - I wouldn't recomend it to anyone.…
