Booked a Cool Corner Suite on the 20th. floor for four nights in July and it did not disappoint.
We arrived early and only the third agreed time we returned to the reception our room was ready, but it was worth waiting for! Amazing views of the city and beach from the living room and the Mediterranean from our bedroom. Room was clean and with all the amenities you could have asked for, the bed was perfect. Would have liked turn down service at night including fresh towels.
We had breakfast at both restaurants the Wave and Bravo as well as in our room, with Bravo as the best choice – calm and relaxing setting with a nice buffet. We had lunch in both the Wave restaurant and the W bar, no complaints. Dinner at Bravo, the restaurant run by the famous Carlos Abellán, was nothing special at all. If you want a great meal try his signature restaurant Comerc 24 a short ride from the hotel, this is superb! (another tip. is the “Dry Martini Bar” – awesome!).
Pool is nice, great service as well. We stayed at the beach club one day, it does not belong to W but if you have a cocktail or lunch it is free including sunbeds and umbrellas.
My wife had a massage in the spa and was very happy with the treatment and service. We also used the fitness-center, very large and with all new equipment.
The hotel is (only) 10 minutes from the city centre by taxi, but during the hot summer months I would always prefer to stay on the beach near the ocean instead of downtown.
This is the hotel to stay at in summer time. Is it 5 star? probably only if you have the perfect room as we did. The rest of the hotel is “W” style great, but not fantastic.
