“A little slice of peace and quiet near Barcelona”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

This is a great hotel, nice rooms, nice pool, on the beach. This is a 5 star hotel if you're looking for peace, quiet, but still have proximity to Barcelona. The service is good, the beach is serene, quiet, not crowded, clean, and beautiful.

But its still a drive into the city - 15-20 minutes, maybe more in traffic. If you're looking to have a romantic, quiet getaway and head to the city a few times then this is the place for you. If you're looking to be in the center of it all, this definitely isn't the place.

Room Tip: Opt for ocean view,

Received straight away an upgrade as a Marriott Platinum member which is always appreciated. The room was very nice and modern. Wifi was working fine. Hotel was clean and the breakfast buffet had enough choices. Perfect location for an airport break. The hotel is close to the airport (not in the city Center) and near the beach. Would stay here again.

This hotel lacks the spit and shine one would expect with a Marriott name. The location is outstanding as it is just in front of a beautiful beach. The rooms are OK, but small. The breakfast buffet is good, but one can not order eggs the way you might want them. The internet available for a fee in the rooms is terrible. The best connection is in the lobby.This hotel is close to the Barcelona airport.

We stayed here one night before an early morning flight. We had fairly low expectations and in some ways they were exceeded. As noted by others, the hotel is a bit worn about the edges. Our room had a slightly stale smell and no ventilation in the bathroom. Aside from that, however, it was well designed, clean and comfortable. We had a nice dinner at a restaurant about a block away followed by a very pleasant evening walk on the beach. On the negative side, wifi access is expensive (12 euros for 24 hours) and turned out to be not very reliable – I had to stand near the door of the room to get a strong signal. We had a slight scare in the morning when the taxi arranged by the front desk did not show up. (The area is very residential and there is no chance of hailing a taxi on the street.) We were able to get another one, however, and made it to the airport in plenty of time. (The trip is about 5 minutes.) Overall, the hotel served its purpose for us. It is expensive for what it is, but I doubt there is a better option so close to the airport.

This is a nice boutique style beachfront hotel away from Barcelona. There is a very easy Bus ride everyday into Barcelona, but it was nice to leave everyday to the quiet suburbs. There are a few nice eateries within walking distance. The water and beach are beautiful. The hotel is NOT a full service- so allow for that. Very limited services, but the rooms are nicely appointed for a European Hotel. We had a balcony overlooking the pool/water. The locals in the area are very friendly and it was a great place to relax. If you take the bus into BCN just pickup a few items at the local small store right in front of the bus stop (they have sodas, snacks, fruit). Its not very expensive and very convenient. Also purchase the multi ride bus pass- saves money.

Room Tip: If are a GOLD or Platinum member they may upgrade you to the balcony water view room. Ask if possibl...

We were here for a night after flying back from Venice at the end of a cruise and needed a place for the night before the flight home. Business style hotel and very functional. The weather wasn't good but the pool looked great and you can get to the beach quickly. There is a really nice restaurant down the street for dinner and several Cafes walkable for breakfast or whatever. They also supplied a free wifi code even though the booking noted that room wifi is at a cost. It's a 10 minute / 20E taxi ride from the airport

Room Tip: We weren't there long so I didn't bother with it, but in our room the wifi was only usable f...
