The hotel is in a very good location, but be very aware!! the wrong turn behind the hotel and you will get pickpocketed or mugged.. The hotel was very comfy and staff friendly, however take plenty of money as the hotel is not inexpensive but very expensive!! Do not eat or drink from the mini bar, so expensive. The beach part of Barcelona was brilliant and very clean and friendly..Alas though, there was not any tiolets to be seen and all out of order, then they charged us 5 euros to go to the tiolet..Which was miles away from our part of the beach.
That was the good but the bad is that the whole place is very scary.. Muggers everywhere, we had money stolen twice from pickpockets that looked ethnic minotiry but could not tell whom they where as the whole place is mixed with varies races. Do not accept any cards or leaflets or anything from any starnger as they will pounce on you and steal and rob you and you will not even notice, they are that good..
We did not have one good meal, the waiters where rude... unhelpful... and every meal was cold and looked as if they had the smallest portions ever seen.. Most places do tapas and we love that type of food but the portions where terrible and always cold, to be then ridiculed by the staff at most restraunts..We sat down in the sun had a sangria and a pint and was charged £18 pounds to my dismay that most places where this expensive.. There was not a lot of english and lots of americans who where getting mugged and robbed at every corner.. I have been to Barcelona the past 6 years on the trot.. This was my last.. BEWARE EVERYONE...
