Wonderful relaxing breakPosted Jul 17, 2014 on Hotels.com
Lovely hotel, very convenient for Barcelona airport (about 45 mins and 100 euros in a cab). All the staff were very friendly and helpful. My Spanish is very basic but all staff could speak English. Breakfast was an excellent buffet catering for all tastes. Beach right on the doorstep with a Beach Club that did good lunches and different themed dinner buffets. Tried some tapas in a few of the local restaurants with generally good results. Slight language problem as the waiters didn't speak much English, however we muddled through with menus in English and saying cerveza and vino tinto! Would definitely go back.

Perfect Beach LocationPosted Sep 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
Loved the beach and location. September is the perfect time for this hotel. Warm but not to busy.

Outstanding location outside of the Barcelona zooPosted Sep 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
Great location ... the walking distance to the town of Calefel, the outstanding beach setting, and the overall service was outstanding. A great getaway. I could stay for a month!

Exceptional servicePosted Sep 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
What highlights this hotel is the attentiveness of the staff. Virtually everyone from concierge to waitresses are helpful and mindful of guest's needs. Therefore, this hotel's staff is what makes it closer to a 5-star hotel than anything else. The hotel's location is about 45 minutes away from Barcelona. Therefore, if you plan to be in Barcelona on business - plan to spend about an hour each way on the road. The hotel is situated on the beach, which is quite nice and useful during the summer period. There is also a pool that can be used to relax during the other seasons. The rooms are clean and have all of the necessities. Yet, the travelers frequent to 5-star hotels may not find the standard rooms as luxurious. However, the price of the hotel is fair, given the combination of amenities and offered services. Once again, the staff of the hotel is the true highlight.

Ok Hotel but very expensive to eat and drink inPosted Sep 8, 2013
Pros: Excellent position on the beach front with a wide promenade running for miles (we walked about 4 miles to the north) in both directions.
Cons: Value for money.
Location: Very Spanish resort. Pleased to say that I didn't see a single "English Pub all the time I was there. Beach front promenade was excellent for walking.
We arrived for a week in a hire car and were shocked to find that there is a parking charge of 23 euros per day plus VAT. This hadn't been mentioned before and wasn't budgeted for. The hotel claimed that this was Expedia's fault for not telling us. Anyway you look at this it still nearly 200 euros I hadn't catered for. Room was ok, but for the first time in over 35 years I didn't have a balcony - and to get one would cost me 70 euros a day extra. Eating and drinking at the hotel was a bit of a minefield. Every time we got a drink it cost a different price! For instance a gin and tonic cost between 9 euros and 13 euros depending on what time you bought it and from which bar. A glass of Rioja was between 5.5 euros and 8 euros. When you think this is the signature wine of Spain it was very expensive. Consider how much a glass of Burgundy is in France and you will see my point. When it came to the food it was very expensive. Charging 42 euros per person for a buffet is a good way to drive your guests away. Unfortunately on the night in question we went into the a-la-carte restaurant and chose dishes at 24 and 28 euros respectively. When, with drinks the final bill came it was for 110 euros. Not worth it Unfortunately, though this was a pleasant hotel it wasn't that special and it was very expensive. For car parking, food and drink (and I paid cash for the first 3 days and we ate out 5 nights out of 7) it cost me 650 euros. Rixos Premium was a lot better and a lot cheaper.

Very Nice, look out for the extras!Posted Jul 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
Stayed 3 nights as we were going to a wedding on the week end. Service excellent and attentive, rooms very comfortable. Breakfast buffet fabulous, however make sure that you don't get down there too late as many of the items finish and are not replaced unless u ask for them! Beach nice, spar is to die for! Extras and Bar, 25 euro per night to park your car and a Gin and Tonic costs 11.50 euro. Still you can walk to all the bars on the front where you can get a decent dinner and drinks for the price of 2 gin and tonics from the hotel bar......

Great for chilling out and getting some raysPosted Jul 8, 2013
Pros: The spa, the design, the location
Cons: Nothing really
Location: Sea front location about 30 mins drive south of Barcelona.
My wife and I needed to escape the rigours of urban living and recharge our batteries - we chose this place purely on the strength of the hotel and spa, and we were delighted with our choice. The hotel is beautiful, clean and stylish, and it's right on the beach (which is impressively clean and sandy). It's just got a very cool ambience. The spa is wonderful and the breakfast buffet really tasty. We were here for seven nights and to be honest we were happy just sunbathing, swimming, reading and lounging. Had dinner here one night and food was superb (though pricey). However, there are loads of restaurants a 5-10 minute walk down the prom. We'd like to come back and I'd highly recommend.
