Hotel staff was amazing! They were really helpful and had great recommendations. The property was really nice and close to the beach and the city. The rooms were nice, but showers were a bit small and I wasn't a fan of the window between the bathroom and the bedroom. Minor complaint for an otherwise great experience!

Having stayed at Melia Barcelona Sky several years ago in a room with a pool and sea view, we decided to return to the hotel in June 2023. However, this time, we opted for a higher category Premium room with a city view. Unfortunately, the room was somehow smaller, and the view was obstructed by another high-rise building next door, which left us extremely dissatisfied. The main issue we encountered was the size of the toilet, which was cramped and restricted movement, making it uncomfortable to use. Additionally, the outdated wooden furniture in the bathroom was not up to our expectations. To add to our disappointment, we noticed that the last time we stayed at this hotel, we had a bathtub, but this time, it was missing from our room. Moreover, after checking in at 3 pm, we were disappointed to find that there were no poolside spots available. The only time we managed to find a place was on the second day when we went early around 10/11 am. The breakfast offered at the hotel reception was also less than satisfactory. The limited variety consisted mainly of bread rolls, cold cuts, and cheese, while the scrambled eggs tasted artificial and unappetizing. Despite being part of the Melia Rewards Gold program and having an upgrade voucher, we were disappointed that it did not work out for us, both this time and the last time we stayed. However, we found it peculiar that we could get an upgrade if we paid for it. For all these reasons, we have decided not to visit this hotel again. If you do decide to stay here, we recommend choosing a room with a sea or pool view. This way, you can also check whether there are available poolside spots before facing the same disappointment we did.
