Yes, shops open on saturdays. Usually start around 9:30/10:00 am and close around 8:30/9:00 pm. "El Corte Inglés" closes at 10 pm.

Some shops close between 2:00 and 4:30 pm.

Re hotels: venere is a good site as you can type in 2 rooms for 5 people in hotel search, also number of stars, which part of town etc if you want ; octopus also lets you search for more than one room at a time (Expedia for one makes you search room by room). Venere includes guests' comments on hotels too.

We've used both venere and octopus, booking for Italy more than one trip. With octopus you pay upfront, with venere on leaving hotel: octopus prices sometimes better.

Yes stay at the Vincci Maritimo just outside of Barcelona, 9 stops on the metro, near the beach and an amazing shopping mall called Diaganol Mar. Hotel will accomodate groups and is cheap and very stylish. It is quiet, but you can seek your excitment outside, a really lovely modern park just outside hotel. Get off at Selva de Mar metro and buy a T10 metro ticket for good value travel - like a travel card but you can use it over many days...Have fun.
