Barcelona Airport shuttle service to Barcelona city hotel

We are a family of six who will be traveling to Barcelona this July. Can anyone recommend a private shuttle service for us to use? We would have to take two taxis or pay bus fare for six and then two taxi fares to get to the hotel. It would seem much easier to get a private van but we have no knowledge as to who might have a reputable firm. Thank you so much.

Sun transfers no thanks we had a taxi booked to pick us up from Barcelona airport,there was no driver waiting upon arrival so after making two phone calls to there office we were told the driver fell asleep so they send another driver but this all took over one hour wich after a long day traveling with two young kids is not very nice.

We used Sun Transfer in Barcelona last week and were not satisfied The van was not there at the agreed time. We called and a small van arrived ½ hour later . We were then put in two taxies that seemed agitated when they found out we had prepaid. On complaining to the company we were told we had too much luggage . We had one standard bag and one small carryon each . Exaltedly what was on the booking form . DO NOT TRUST

We used Costa Blanca Transfers to get from the airport to our hotel. Great service and value, friendly drivers, clean vehicles and prompt pick up both from the airport and on our return from the hotel. Couldn't ask for better.

It doesn't make the thread less useful because the OP travelled last year.

We used Sun Transfers for a group of 8. Great service, no problems. Two suggestions:

1. book online more than 24 hours in advance of departure. You can book with less lead time, but it requires a few more steps (you need to call them for a booking number that you can enter online, and they need to confirm with a driver first so will call you back -- requires access to a phone number).

2. have access to a printer: the driver requires a printed receipt.

We booked the suntransfer to pick us up at the Barcelona airport, but they could not deliver the service. Our flight got delayed for approx. 2.5 hours on the same day. We have notified them before we left (approx. more than 24 hours). You can book this service but be sure that you have no delay on your arrival. Otherwise you may as well say good bye to your 40 euro. Beware!
