... trying, oh no. She wins a jumper emblazoned with the golf club logo, which will look very smart as she advances into middle age. Lots of nice bird life & croaking frogs.
Tonight we ventured out into the old town of Sitges, which is really great & full of character. Some tapas & drinkies on the sea front, then a walk up the narrow back streets to find a great little old tapas/wine bar, then a stroll to the hotel which included ...
... a free beer in front of me to make me stay longer. I now know that if anyone gives me a free drink to stay longer there is "desperation" in the air...
So I positioned myself at the bar, and asked the barman when the singing would start. He told me that there wouldnt be any that night because they hadnt planned it. He (the pianist) was supposed to be in Thailand tonight but his flight was cancelled, so it was pure chance the bar was open. Planning! How much bloody planning ...

After taking in the interesting church facade we headed up hill towards Park Guell. Throwing his hand at town planning his failed neighbourhood has become an interesting 'art' park with a whole heap of quirky features. As with all of ...

After Tot d'Inici it is time for the projections show. The Seguici Popular returns to the Ayuntament and the crowd thins a bit, but not enough for us to move back a bit to get a better view. The show this year was called "La casa mÓgica " and was due to start at 21:15 although I think it was a bit later than that ...

Our final Gaudi building to visit was the Casa Batllo, a nice walk from the last building down the street ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Dolce Sitges Resort
Just spent 4 nights in Dolce Sitges (14 - 18 Sep) and wasn't sure what to expect before we arrived, having read many bad reviews on the tripadvisor forums.
We stayed for 5 fantastic nights, the friendly service and peaceful setting of the Dolce was what really made our stay so good. All the staff spoke very good English (& some good German, French or Italian it seemed), they were really polite and helpful - we had a problem with our hire car and they drove us to the rental depot in town to sort it out without us even suggesting it! They just seemed happy to go bit further to make sure we were happy with our stay.
Just returned yesterday from Dolce Sitges and would say this is by far the worst 5* hotel I have ever had the misfortune to stay in. But why?
My wife and I have returned from 3 nights in The Dolce Stiges. We'd spent the previous 2 nights a The Jazz Hotel in Barcelona (also highly rated), but it was nice to escape the hustle of the city and relax in this brand new hotel set on a hill above the ocean.
Just got back from Dolce Sitges yesterday! It is a beautiful hotel and the decor is modern and quite gorgeous. Everything is brand new and feels luxurious. The hotel is set a little way out from Sitges, perched on top of a hill with fab views of the sea. We had a room on the top floor with a sea view which was well worth the extra money. Rooms are lovely. Everything you could need, even tea and coffee making facility which you don't normally get in Spain. Air con was quiet and efficient, not many english channels on the flat screen tv though, but who wants to watch tv when you've got a room with a view?! Hair dryer, iron and ironing board, good storage....... no probs. The hotel runs a little shuttle bus every half hour which takes you to the beach, about a five minute journey. When we wanted to get into town we tended to catch this shuttle bus and then wander along the seafront into Sitges. Bit of a walk really as it took nearly half an hour to get right into the middle of the action. However we liked to do a bit of people watching and stop in a couple of bars along the way! If you want to go out in the evening then you'll be best off with taxis as the last shuttle finished at 5.30. The taxi cost about 8 Euros one way I think. The front desk ordered them for us and they arrived quickly. We stayed for 4 nights and ate in the hotel restaurant for 2 of them. DELICIOUS! We opted for the buffet which was 38 Euros but you could eat as much as you liked and the wine and coffee was included in the price. Sounds pricey but the food was top notch and eating outside on the terrace overlooking the sun going down on Sitges was wonderful. We loved it.
The decoration/ambiance of this hotel is terrific, but as with many 'style' hotels that's where the good news ends. I live in Sitges (near the hotel) and can endorse the comments of other visitors based upon having arranged for family members to stay there recently. The standards of service are appalling, but my sense is that this is all about poor HR management rather than the personalities of the customer-facing staff. As another poster commented, maybe they will learn.
The hotel is lovely but fails to be what it promises on a number of points. Starting with the positive, its quiet and the views are the best in the area. The rooms are well sized and the decor is excellent. If you want a holiday where you stay in the room occasionally venturing onto the balcony this is the spot for you!
We booked to stay 10 nights in the Dolce Sitges and arrived on Monday 22nd. We were initially impressed with the hotel, the reception was swish, bar area modern and rooms fantastic. The views were out of this world and overlooked the golf course and sitges itself, however.....the hotel really needs to learn a few lessons in catering and service!
I've just returned from a short stay in Dolce Sitges and I out of all the world-wide hotels I have stayed in this has to be the worst 5* graded hotel for service and food!
