Rated 5 out of 5 by Carlos2222222 Wow what a great beach vacation 1 hr south of Barcelona!
My wife and I love the beach, Barcelona and also love SPG (SPG Platinum) so when we decided to travel to Spain for my birthday we decided to spend a couple of days to "try this property" as a possible new future beach trip site and we are happy to report we loved it!!!
This place truly is an oasis, , , ,the whole place exudes calm and tranquility from the ample space in the public spaces to the attentive service when you arrive (Leo, bellman and Ezequiel front desk attendant) to the ample chaise lounge beach chairs on the nice mediterranean beach. The beach isnt private as others have said but you can get free chaise lounge chairs (beach attendant Moustapha is attentive and friendly) without fighting for the chairs or paying for them like at other beach spots (this is why we arent fans of Caribbean or Florida) .
Rooms: We were upgraded to room 184 which was a nice suite facing the beach. The room was modern and perfect for what we wanted: rest and relaxation however the shower needs to be changed. . . . first of all the knobs are confusing and more importantly the shower head points to the door so it sprays water into the bath room floor and when you figure out how to change from shower head to the hand shower the damage is done and the water is everywhere and apparently I wasnt only one with this problem as when you inspect the bathroom door which opens towards the shower the bottom of the door has water damage. In summary the shower system needs to be fixed as it is annoying and destructive to the hotel property etc. Other than that everything else was perfect.
Food: We had breakfast included as SPG amenity and it was a treat to sit outside on terrace looking out to beautiful ocean every morning and the food was typical wonderful European breakfast with cava and jamon serrano to wonderful breakfast treats! We always look forward to European breakfast at SPG properties as they always are amazing and not the cheap American breakfasts we get through SPG USA properties (i.e. SPG breakfast amenity "only" includes cold breakfast buffet items etc).
Location: This beach location is located 1 hour from Barcelona in sleepy little village El Vendrell. Calafell is walkable (food and drinks) and Sitges is close by (for nightlife and drinks and dinner) but if you come here its to escape the madness of life and you want to relax and have stress-free vacation where you can enjoy beach and not have to fight for parking or beach chair or other stressors you encounter at other beach spots.
Verdict: We found a new wonderful beach escape and will come back soon and often!

Your hotel exceeded our expectations.
Great views, excellent beach, the best facilities.
But even within this excellence the most remarkable feature is the staff that made us feel like home. Young and caring professionals that made us make a strong decission to return in a near future.
