The only reason I can't bring myself to give this hotel 5 stars is due to the service. The building itself has a huge wow factor. Architecually amazing and instantly recognisable from many different parts of the city. The location is amazing, right on the beach looking out over the Med in all directions. The Rambla and old town are both a 10 minute walk and Port Olimpic is a 10 minute stroll along the beach. The views are exceptional, especially from the bar on floor 26. I miss waking up in front of floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking the sea. The food in the various restaurants was great and the buffet breakfast was extensive. The pool area was gorgeous- all white and pristine with super views. The downside was the service- twice we ordered food and 40 minutes later discovered that our order had never been placed, once at the pool and once during breakfast at Wave. The waiter service, although friendly, appeared overwhelmed and in some cases, undertrained. We had a wonderful stay here and were wowed by the building, food and location but felt that the service was not up to scratch and didn't match the 5 star elements of the hotel.
