Not a significant birthday, but a treat nonetheless. Reception staff, wonderfully welcoming, spotted the date from my passport and we were treated to a bottle of extremely good Cava next day. The restaurant was stylishly unostentatious and the food as impressive as the attentive, but not at all intrusive, service. Eating tapas on the terrace was also a delightful experience.
The room was comfortable and clean. Fresh fruit, chocolate treats, free mini bar of soft drinks all added to the feeling of luxury. And then there was the bathroom; beautifully fitted out and equipped with luxurious toiletries.
The jewel in the crown, though, was the staff. Nothing seemed too much trouble and there were always smiles. It is a wonderful place in a brilliant location and we will certainly be returning.
