We stayed at the hotel after a recommendation from a friend, and we weren't disappointed. The front desk staff were keen to tell us about the tour bus that stops right outside across the road, we bought a 2 day ticket from reception that allowed us to hop on and off whenever we wanted. I recommend sitting on the bus for the whole route to get your bearings and see everything Barca has to offer.
The hotel is very modern and lovely design, breakfast was amazing! Made you want to get up early and start the day with a great selection of food and even champagne if you want it. The room is on the small side but the views from our room made up for that, the room looks fantastic and was clean and tidy.
We stayed one afternoon chilling on the roof terrace, perfect place to sun bath, the pool is small but still nice to jump in when too hot and the bar staff up there were happy to bring our drinks to our sun loungers and were friendly.
The beach is a 15/20minute walk from the hotel, and is literally straight all the way.. you can't miss it, there is a shopping centre across the road with a supermarket in it which is handy. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would be happy to recommend and stay here again.
