The people were so friendly. The La Ramblas was very crowded. There were a lot of places we didn't get to but we will next time!
The hotel staff, especially James went above their way for us. We felt like royalty. The hotel itself is so beautiful and impressive! We were in awe of such beauty. The pools were so warm, even the roof top pool, which we enjoyed so much. The SPA pool was unique and so relaxing. Children under 14 are not supposed to be in it which will ensure adults can just relax. It is the only hotel in Barcelona that has two pools, one indoors and one outdoors. The water was exceptionally warm so the cool wind didn't bother us while in the warm roof top pool. We felt like we zoomed back in time to an ancient era. I would go back, I can't wait to go back, I love this hotel and it was well worth it. 213 Euros a night is a little high priced but for the 3 nights we stayed, we felt it was worth it because we had never been to Spain and the safety and security was more important. This hotel was very secured. We had a safe in our room which we used. The large king-size bed was more than big enough for all 3 of us and I recommend that the hotel not be so insistent on only 2 people per room. This was fine for a family of 3. We thoroughly enjoy the free internet (we brought our small lap top). The TV had lots of channels to watch, especially for small kids like 8.
