Very large hotel, very modern with a massive underground car park which made it very impersonal. Rooms very clean and as previous stated modern, full WiFi coverage all over the hotel. Restaurants not in keeping with the hotels image, poor menu and service as well both for dinner and also breakfast the following morning. Good swimming pool and sun deck and outside dinning area as well as in the bars and restaurants. We did as good for half the price we paid here at some of our other overnight stops so disappointed as we have stayed in a number of Barcelo hotels before.

I appreciate the service, the staff is nice, the hotel We received two salmon, pizza and a plate of fries... I'll put you the picture of my dishes. The salad is missing, no homemade sauces and only one fries. For €81 I find it very excessive. is beautiful. But I just made a room service request, namely, two salmon with fries and salad and a 4-cheese pizza. I didn't want to make it public but I tried to make a claim on the site and it doesn't work, an error message appears.
