“What a lovely place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2009

I have spent 4 great long week-ends at this hotel in the last 6 months and enjoyed all of them. I have always found the staff courteous,polite and helpful. Yes, the service can be a little slower than you are used to in the U.K. but it's a holiday so relax and enjoy! As for not having enough sun loungers isn't that the normal thing where ever you are!
I will certainly come here again and would recommend it to any new visitors. Come and see for yourself, you will not be disappointed.
If there happens to be a wedding while you are there it can only add to your experience of life in Spain. I came to relax and unwind which I did!

We stayed for five days at this hotel in late August. I'd played golf at the adjacent course the previous year, and thought the hotel looked fabulous. It's a quiet, peaceful place - when there isn't a wedding being held there! - but it could be so much better. The bar and restaurant service is painfully slow, and the staff can be abrupt and outright rude. The food is generally OK when it eventually arrives, but don't expect gourmet Catelonian food. If you want that, head for the Can Bonastre wine resort 5 km north, which is an oasis in comparison, but also much more expensive. Unless the Barcelo management sort out the staffing problem, and unless you're luckier than we were, this is a place to avoid. Also, the spa costs hotel guests 13 euros, which is a disgrace. The pool is good, but lacks adequate sunloungers.

We booked this Hotel on Price Line at an excellent price and were not expecting what we got. in all we spent 8 weeks in Europe this summer nd had some great hotel experiences but this was the best. Do yourself a favour and enjoy this Hotel and the area around it.

Julie & Edna. Bolton Lancs....My mother & I visited this hotel knowing that it was located outside Barcelona & with a view to travelling 'in', but we didnt realise how far 'out' it was , & how expensive the taxis would be,(our taxi driver got completely lost!! consequently a dearer ride!). The hotel itself is very nice & the rooms are very clean & spacious, but spending seven days there is definately NOT recommended. The hotel seems to cater for conferences & business people rather than the holiday maker, unless of course you play golf, then that is a different matter as the hotel is surrounded by a magnificant golf course!... We did find a fantastic local restaurant just on the main road from the hotel, it can't be missed as it's THE ONLY ONE! It is fantastic for a typicall catalonian meal & is family run, with very freindly staff, despite the language barriers..... because of the isolation.. we would not visit this hotel again.

Booked the Barcelo Montserrat Hotel through Superbreak.com for £256 for a four night stay in a double room with breakfast.

The first thing to say is that you have to have a car to stay here. If you don't then don't consider it - the nearest town is Martorell - which is quite industrial and about a 10-15 minute taxi ride away, costing €15-20, with the train to Barcelona costing just under €5 return. There are not really any restaurants that we found nearby, and the nearest town - Sant Esteves which was very sleepy - has little amenities and is about an hours walk away.

Thats the bad part - now for the good part - (as long as you have a car!)

Parking in Barcelona is unbelievably expensive - expect to pay €30 for over 12 hours parking anywhere near the city. However we did find two gems - one in particular. The first is that there is a limited amount of free parking spaces towards Parc Guell, but there are normally full, and they are still around 15 minutes walk to the nearest metro. The best parking is in the City Centre by Glories Roundabout with its own metro station 2 stops from Pl de Catalunya. It normally costs €31.20 for over 12 hours, but if you go in and park, take your ticket to the booth and ask to buy a "Metropark" ticket, then you can get up to 18 hours parking for €5.50 INCLUDING unlimited metro, tram and bus travel. This is unrivaled and we found it to be excellent.

We also found a fantastic place to eat in the harbour on the main pier, at the rear of the aquarium, where we had 1 bottle of cava, 2 bottles of wine, 5 tapas, 2 bottles of water, bread, 4 mains, 1 dessert, and 7 liquers for £25 each with a harbour view and tables outside. It is decked out in black leather seats and looks very fancy, with a set of tables located at the front with blue and orange lights.

The hotel itself is great, with underground parking, great pool, nice rooms - no doubles, just two singles pushed together, made up seperatley, nice reasonable bar and restaurant, as well as indoor pool, ping pong and pool. The bathrooms have no doors, just a glass one to the toilet and shower. The Restaurant lacks atmosphere but the food was great, as were the breakfasts.

We also drove to Sitges for the day (40 miles and €10 return in the toll road or free on the costal road) which was beautiful. The beaches and sea were great as is the entire coastline south of Barcelona.

The Friexnet Cava factory is highly recommended, and you can get a tour of their huge factory and a glass of Cava for €4 each, although we were not charged for some reason!!

The hotel is located 10 minuted drive from the E-90 Motorway, which is just past a toll booth from and to Barcelona, and in any direction on the motorway - this costs €1.85 for a regular car. In terms of a supermarket there is a large Carrefour in Martorell by the station.

Overall the hotel is really good - clean, friendly, reasonable bar and restaurant, lovely pool, large rooms, and great rooms - most having a great view of the Montserrat Monestry. A great option for exploring the region - but if you are only going for Barcelona, then stay in the City, and also stay in Sitges if you want a beach! 8/10 for this hotel!

This is a very up-market hotel with good sized rooms with quality fittings and tiled floors. Excellent restaurant - huge breakfast buffet for 12 Euros and brilliant 4-course dinner menu for 25 Euros. Stunning views over golf course and surrounding hilly countryside. It was very quiet in all senses. Mostly French and Spanish guests, some English. Pool and lawn area very good for sunbathing and keeping our 9 year old happy. Table tennis, pool and bar-footie available.

All in all, a very good hotel. The one issue you might have is that the waiters do not speak much English. Reception have good English, but the waiters very little. Sometimes, service was slow. The waiters seem a bit amateurish, but in our experience not a problem.

You need a car: it is about 20 km outside Barcelona and off the beaten track. Not a tourist area and you will struggle to find many that speak English in the local area. We ate in the hotel partly because nowhere else was open.

Barcelona can easily be reached by car. We were advised to park in the University (closed for the summer) and take the Metro. It took about 20-30 minutes by car. Metro was very efficient. But keep hold of your purses: we had money stolen on the Metro.

Incidentally, you have a great view of the mountain of Montserrat and the monastery at the top is worth a visit (on a clear day). The signs lead you all the way up by road around the west side, but if you go the other way and head up the C-55 to the village of Monistrol de Montserrat, you will find a cable-car and a railway to take you up.

Originally we were looking for a hotel in Barcelona but a world congress had block booked most of the hotel rooms. This problem meant we had to look outside the city for accommodation - but this turned into an advantage when we spotted this hotel. We booked the hotel at a total cost of £400 for 4 nights - 2 children - 2 adults - 2 rooms. We hired a car from the airport. The hotel was excellent in every way, the view from the hotel window comprised of a golf course and the Montserrat mountains (stunning). Staff were friendly, eager to please and most spoke english. Barcelona was very simple to get to. 10 minutes in car to Martorell station and train to Sants metro station (train runs approx every 10 mins). Automated (english language) ticket machines at martorell station can be used to buy block tickets that can be used on train/metro/funiculars are simple to use. Glad we hired a car because it meant we were able to visit Montserrat monastary (a must) and Sitges
