Staff are very polite and attentive but not very helpful. At breakfast, egg and beans took over 40 mins. The location is on the beach which is good but not on the best part of the beach, that is a 5-10min walk away. The room was a good size and nicely appointed. We were on the 25th floor and had...

Excellent llocation and friendly staff and great facilities, but rip-off prices for food and drinks. I would have liked to enjoy the facilities at the hotel more, but do not enjoy the feeling of being exploited even if I can afford it.... Think they could have made more total profit, with lower service prices :-)

We booked a two bed apartment at the top level of this Ritz Carlton hotel. The view is breathtaking. You pay over 2.000 euro a night so you might expect frist class service. Not at all. Most of the personal was newly employed and not properly trained. We had problems with reservations, bills and requests were denied or not met....

The hotel is nicely decorated, the rooms are spacious, the ocean views are great, the beds are comfortable. In addition, the buffet breakfast is very nice and the ataff are uniformly friendly and helpful. So what knocks off a star? The location is truly mixed. It's by the beach, but not actually on it. There is very little of interest...

This is a beautiful hotel, no doubt. The rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable. Unfortunately, I am not having a pleasant stay so far, because: -the service is not great. Some people are friendly and helpful, but some are not. It seems like some of the staff are only friendly to certain people. -there is no organized process. This is...

This hotel is stunning and a great place to stay. Breakfast is great, the pool is awesome and overlooks the harbour and beach. The team make you want for nothing. The four restaurants cater for each type of fining occasion. The spa and gym are top of the range. The best place to stay in Barcelona.

Definitely one of the best hotels we have stayed in - the end-to-end experience is world class. We stayed in a room on the Club level floor and our every need was taken care of.

Staying in Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica

Neighbourhood Profile
Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica. Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local fish to the various restaurants running along the marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs which practically lie on the beach itself.
