Trendy hotel with fantastic views

Posted 15-Sep-2014
Pros: Views are fantastic. Rooms and hotel are trendy. Comfy beds. Beach bar.
Location: Long walk to major areas and metro but plenty of taxis on hand.
Stayed for 5 nights in a Fabulous room on the 19th floor. We'd stayed in this room type before in 2011 and, as ever, this room did not disappoint in terms of the amasing view of Barcelona and San Sebastia beach. In 2011, we were a bit disappointed with the quality of service, and given some of the recent reviews here, we were worried we would see this again. But we didn't! The service was excellent this time - all staff were friendly, polite and always on hand to serve (including the beach area) - vast improvement on 2011. Well done W! We knew what to expect with the party atmosphere on Sundays so this year we went prepared for a party at the excellent Sunday pool party with a fantastic DJ. I'm sure this would annoy some guests who weren't prepared but if you go ready for it, you will love it and the noise finishes by 1 am anyway. Really enjoyed it. Very minor complaint was that our room was not cleaned on the first full day - we had to ring to ask for this at 5 pm, left the room for an hour and came back and it still wasn't done so had to call again and it was finally done at 6.30 pm (while we were getting ready to go out for the evening so not ideal). After that, we asked for the room to always be cleaned between 10 am and 2 pm and it was done promptly every day then. I would recommend telling them when you want the room cleaned if this is something that you need. Also, some nice new additions to make the guests feel welcome - free wifi (big plus), free coffee in the am.

Great location, superb hotel!

Posted 26-Aug-2014
Pros: Everything!!!
Location: Great location, right on the beach, walking distance to marina, short taxi ride to the city centre.
W is truly one of the best hotels I have stayed in. The rooms are stunning, all with amazing views over the coastline. The food is beautiful and the restaurant service is first class to go with the food! The waiter service at the bars and pool were also excellent. The Pool is small, but sunbeds really comfy and plentiful! I would return and recommend it to others!!
