Luxury three double bedroom apartment with modern utilities in a superb central location

This property is great value for money. The children loved the pool, which was well looked after and we appreciated the various toys that were left at the villa for our use. The welcome pack was extremely generous and the villa was very spacious for the five of us. We were provided with everything you need in a 'home from home'. It was a quiet area but close to shops/beach, etc. In hindsight, we think it would've been best to hire a car to see more of the area but there is a bus service available, which we found easy to use. The only negative is that the double bed was lumpy and uncomfortable. We would recommend this villa if you are after a relaxing family holiday.
The villa was in a good area with many facilities nearby. The pool was very good and the upstairs patio was excellent. The kitchen was well equiped and the bathroom very nice. The villa was very clean and spacious and the children liked the TV with all its stations.
I did find the bed quite uncomfortable especially after a touch of sunburn. The walk to the beach was rather long and it was difficult to cross the dual carriageway to get there.

Hi, thanks for the review. The Beach can be accessed via the underpass, no need to try and cross that busy dual carriageway. Geoff

This apartment certainly met expectations in terms of its décor and facilities, it looked stunning and with its high ceilings it was really light and airy. The kitchen was very well equipped and it was good that there were cleaning products available, save us having to go and buy everything. All the rooms were exactly as shown in the pictures - the main bedroom was really spacious and the wall to wall wardrobes were great! It is in an ideal location, perfectly placed in the city to access all areas, but also lovely and quiet of an evening.
Our greeter was really friendly and helpful, I texted her on a couple of occasions and she responded back really quickly.
My criticisms would be that It mentioned in the advert that there would be access to the roof terrace, but when we got there we were told that the terrace was not available which was a shame. In the twin bedroom there were no shutters to stop the sun coming in and it was also the only room not to have an air con unit so it was really quite warm at night when trying to sleep.
Apart from the couple in the bathrooms and one small one in the lounge there were no other mirrors in the apartment. So girls be aware, there is no full length mirror to check out your outfit!
We really enjoyed our stay here and for the money that we paid we were all pleased what the apartment offered.

The property was ideally situated in the heart of Barcelona and although it was in the midst of all the hustle and bustle, the apartment itself was quiet, spacious and very comfortable.
