“Great hotel and great location”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

I just stayed for a weekend with my family at Le Meridien at El Vendrell. The hotel is magnificent, the rooms are great, the food excellent, the breakfast utmost. The location juts in front of the beach just perfect. The spa absolutely worthwhile. The only but would be that there is no swimming pool by the beach, there is a pool on the roof, and to get there, from the beach you need to go to the opposite side of the beach, take a lift... great for adults, but not the kind of pool by the beach children would love.
Congratulations to all the team.

Was recommended this hotel through 2 rewards programs and can certainly see why they got such high profiles.

This hotel is about a 60 minute taxi ride from the Barcelona airport or you can easily catch the train from Barcelona to Calafell station which is a 10 minute walk from the hotel.

We ended up hiring a car (organized through the hotel) so that we could do a number of day trips to various places.

The hotel staff were very friendly & welcoming and happy & helpful throughout our entire stay. They were very attentive and ready to make you feel in a home away from home.

The customer service representative was absolutely phenomenal! I had done very little activity planning prior to this trip. We sat down at the hotel desk and were given information on how to get the trains to and from Barcelona, the timetables, maps of the area as well as an array of activities we could enjoy.

Our room was lovely with a fantastic view of the ocean from the ground floor. The hotel was once a hospital and been renovated and extended, keeping the traditional look of the building intact, whilst adding all the mod cons in the new wings. I found the photos and explanations on the walls to be a great history lesson.

Had a fantastic massage and facial at the Spa, and you have to check out the egg swing chairs and lounges by the rooftop pools. The view from the pool deck overlooking the ocean is wonderful!

Enjoyed a number of good meals in the hotel restaurants, and they had a great breakfast everyday from 8-11 while we where there. Highly recommend sitting at the beach bar and having a mohito or daiquiri too!

Every night there was an activity right outside the hotel restaurant including human towers, fireworks and live music, and a 2 minute walk will lead you to more great restaurants, cafes and bars.

This is definitely a place I can see myself retuning to. There are activities for every age group.

Thanks Le Meridian Ra for setting such a high standard for our holiday.

We spent three days at this resort and which we had done longer. The staff was amazing, the room was spacious and beautiful and we *loved* the spa. Highly recommended for a few days of R&R by the sea. We also really enjoyed the little town, lots of character and refreshingly not touristy.

Room Tip: Splurge for the ocean view room. Worth it.

After a work trip in Barcelona I stayed a couple of days at this property to relax. The hotel is gorgeous and as a platinum member got a spectacular upgrade to a beachfront room with a private balcony (probably one of the best rooms!). The breakfast buffet was excellent but the dinner buffet I had (once) was only okay.

Relaxed on the beach for 2 days and it was not crowded with free umbrella and chair use. The only downside was that you cannot order food while at the chairs and had to move to the outdoor patio/restaurant. A lot of locals also frequent the beach!

Beware though the hotel is tough to find even using the GPS.

A very nice stay overall and would return!

It started with a very slow reaction from the reservation desk.
As we arrived we received a nice glass of cava, from, so it appeared later, the only(!) friendly front desk person...The rest was very unfriendly. We had to say hello while passing them during the day. This could be better.
The rooms were on the 2nd SPG floor. They were grand deluxe. Unfortunately not clean at all and not that large as promised. With a lot of poor maintenance (broken fosset, paint damage, door damaged, dead mosquito's on the wall/ceiling).
The restaurant was wonderful, especially because of Mauricio, Steven, Antonio and Natalia. The food was of perfect quality!!
The beach was lovely, Moses makes a big effort to make you feel at home.
All in all we think that this is a great hotel, with the potential of 5 stars, but is not quite there yet....

My husband and I just spen a wonderful four days at Le Meridien Ra Hotel. This hotel deserves all of the superlatives. It is located on a beautiful beach staffed by a charming man who pampers the hotel guests, setting up the sun lounges, bringing extra towels, and anything else you might need. The rooms are lovely; ours had a balcony with a panoramic sea view. Everything needed for a comfortable hotel stay is here, good beds and pillows, a shower and a tub, lots of storage, and easy wi fi access. The breakfast is sumptuous with a wide variety of hot food specialties along with the standard array of meats, cheeses, and patries. We only had dinner at the hotel restaurant once, as we ate in town most nights, but it was superb. The staff bent over backwards to accomodate our every need--from the glass of cava on arrival, to the bottle of cava in our room-- the service was perfect, especially Carmen who took customer service to an art. The only thing that didn't cooperate was the weather which was unseasonaly cold for late May. Even then the hotel offered the perfect place to spend a relaxing day in the spa using the wonderful thassalotherapy pool. Next time I'd like to stay even longer.

Room Tip: The sea view rooms are a litle more but the view is really worth the extra money.
