We spent 3 nights on La Ramblas and then retreated up to Gran Florida for 2 nights of chilling.
Amazing service; we were checked in and given 2 glasses of bubbles and a tour of the pool and spa area, then shown to our room. We booked a Mountain view terrace - there is no view (as per prev. reviews it's trees, a powerline and the entrance) but the room was massive and luxurious, a monster sized bed (after our 2 singles on wheels in the city very welcome!) the shower was huge and the bathroom gorgeous. While we didn't have the views of the sea-side terraces (which we could enjoy from the pool anyway) we did get the sun - from breakfast to dinner. Once the pool area lost the sun we'd go back to the room and sit on our loungers until 8.30. No noise at all from the car park or road.
It was worth getting the terrace as the restaurant (which is amazing) is basically silver service and night 2 we just wanted to relax (not having wine refilled 1 sip at a time) so ordered room service. Then we decided to get room service breakfast which was a lot nicer than the buffet.
I would definitely recommend this as the hotel to finish your barcelona stay - you're too far away to really access the city easily (20€), but it's great to do the touristy thing then get out of the craziness and seriously relax somewhere special.
Never heard a peep from the adventure park next door (although surprised it was there, literally next to the hotel on the hill). If we had been motivated to leave the poolside we may have checked it out. I wouldn't let it put you off staying (we were there Mon/Tues)
