“Barcelona & beach”
Reviewed 6 November 2011

Nice & stylish hotel right on the beach only 10 min away from Barcelona airport (have the address ready, not all cab drivers know where the hotel is located) The rooms are well designed and very modern (free minibar is a nice extra). There is no balcony, but you can open the large windows (and see & hear the sea!). There is free wi-fi in the lobby. The beach is great for watching the sunset.

A stylish, modern hotel, that is clean and well presented. Close to the airport (10 mins by cab for 20 Euro) but, thankfully, away from the noise and hubub. The local area has a sprinkling of shops and bars.
The public areas are bright and airy, the pool and terrace well tended. The spacious garden leads directly onto the beach.
My room, 212, had a direct, unhindered view across the pool and gardens to the sea. There is no balcony but there are large double, patio style doors.

My real issue with this hotel is that the charging structure appears to be run along similar lines to a budget airline. Extra for internet, 12 Euro, extra for parking, 14 Euro per day, extra for breakfast, 16 Euro.
They do offer free internet in reception but I do not consider this acceptable when travelling on business.
Any hotel that activly chooses to inconvenience it's guests for the sake of a quick hidden charge will not get my repeat business.

The location is fine, the rooms are fine, the facilities are fine. But I checked out with the kind of feeling that must accompany beeing robbed in the street.

This Marriott is a nice hotel, steps from the beach and close to the airport (30 Euro cab ride).
The staff was nice, room was clean and bed was ok. It was a hot October day, and the air conditioning is shut off the end of Sept, but we could open the window. Nice pool and patio area. Free Wifi in the lobby, which had complimentary coffee, tea and pastries in the afternoon. Best part of stay was the lovely Chez Bea, creperie on the little main street. It's a quiet little beach area, fine for a one night stay before heading to the airport. Only negative - come on Marriott let's get some new linens! Really holes in the bed sheets? We expect more from a Marriott.

We stayed here for 1 day after returning from a meditarrean cruise. I like to have fun when I travel so here goes........

If you like to club, this hotline is not for you. Very quiet and everybody behaves.

Pros:

Nice, sleek, chic
Euro style furniture (kinda like Ikea)
Very clean
On beach & pool
Close to airport
Staff nice
Free minibar with spanish birra (don't get excited)
Walking distance to tapas, restaurants & bar

Cons:
No currency exchange
1 channel in English (they will CNN you to death)
No shuttle to airport
Small rooms, but heyyyy were not in the USA right?
No bar (I was told the hostess,waitress,cook would make you a drink) lol
No wireless in room. You have to come downstairs to the common area. No business center to print boarding passes.

Would I return again? Yes.... Next time I'll bring plenty of DVDs & tuck my party mood away.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the pool & beach for scenic reasons.

This hotel is very conveniently located when you need to stay close to El Prat airport. Furniture are modern and comfortable, location is good to reach Barca centre, about 30 minutes driving, and very good to go to the beaches of Gava and Castelldefels. Restaurant is good and dishes are well prepared with some Catalan specialties.

We have just returned from staying in this hotel for 10 days. It was a really lovely place to stay. The rooms and facilities were wonderful and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. It is located right beside the beach, plus the pool and surrounding area is very pleasant to spend a few hours sunning yourself! The buffet breakfast is a bit expensive and was extra, but was free for our 11 year old, having said that, the breakfast was very good. There is a very helpful tourist office up the road, and there is a bus stop only 5 minutes away, which has a bus that brings you directly into Barcelona - cheap and very efficient! The only negative I would have is the availability of restaurants in the immediate Gava Mar area, there were very few - although there is one restaurant - Torreon, which is just a hundred metres from the hotel, that was very good, although a little on the expensive side for Spain, but worth it. I would definitely recommend this hotel for those with a car. I would give the hotel a five rating, but feel it could improve on its offering of food.

Room Tip: All great rooms as they all face toward the beach, we were on the second floor and had lovely views...
