Excellent experience, I was made to feel like a individual with special treatment. The staff were always happy to help and I was left a birthday treat in the room without even telling the staff it was my birthday . The location was amazing as me and my boyfriend love to walk and what a lovely walk it is into...

I will start with a couple of negatives which make this 4 instead of 5. When we arrived the two reception staff (1 male, 1 female) were both dealing with a customer and someone else was waiting ( to collect a computer...I think) So we had to wait, no problem with that but there was no interaction ...I would expect...

The hotel is modern and nice with a very good location. However that is about it. The staff are not helpful whatsoever, they are friendly but completely ignored my complaint about the shower not working right from the start. So I couldn't even take a single shower for the entirety of my stay. Double bed was just 2 twins put...

I am once again very happy with the hotel chain Barcelò! The Occidental Atenea Mar is in a great location although a little far from the beaches of Barcelonette, the metro station is a 10 min walk so very convenient. The structure is modern and well maintained. The reception, the reception staff and all the staff in general is very...

We are regular customers at the Barcelo hotels and resorts, and therefore when planning our trip to Barcelona, we chose one of their hotel for our stay : The Occidental Atenea Mar.

Great location near the beach and a lovely walk to the Ramblers All staff very helpful. Loved the rooftop pool area - though some more loungers would have been ideal. Also would have been good for the bar to be manned - however note that it was early in the season.

Excellent location with easy access to transport links, beach and shopping. Staff were friendly, helpful and courteous throughout. Local restaurants (many within 100-200m) provide a varied and nutrious choice of menus.
