... that looked like pickpockets, nor did I see any Police or security personnel. I bought a Ham & Cheese bun at a small food stand in the Metro as it was lunch time and I was getting hungry.
When I exited the Metro station, I wasn’t sure exactly which side of Sagrada Familia I’d need to go to find the entrance. I passed a couple of entry points for groups, and one of the girls there directed me around the corner to a location where ...
... there seemed to be no control, organisation, and no space around them to move. Participants and spectators were just crushed together in one mass. The people at the top were small children, which made sense, and they did at least provide them with crash helmets in case they fell. But what about the people below? A small child can do a lot of damage when travelling at high speed. My task today is to find out what on earth it was all about.
Ended up having a couple of drinks ...

We then walked in to Barceloneta and met up with some more friends of Mary’s and had food at a tapas bar.

So the first full day in Barcelona and the crowds were ridiculous. This was by far ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sunway Playa Golf Hotel & Spa Sitges
My wife and I stayed here for a week at the end of June, we were looking for a chill-out before heading into Barcelona for a few days. We looked into transport from the airport and there is a bus service to Sitges but on arrival at Barcelona the airport was so busy and we had been delayed a few hours so we just jumped in a taxi. This cost approx 70 euros. We were very pleased with our room in the hotel which was very clean and large with a large balcony overlooking the sea. The hotel itself was very pleasant with 2 large pools. Breakfast was good with a good choice and great fresh orange juice. We also ate in the hotel restaurants a few times where the food was also good. Sitges itself is very pleasant with many good restaurants. The resort centre is a good 35 minute walk from the hotel but this is a very pleasant evening stroll. Also there is a bus which runs into town although this stops at around 10pm so you will have to walk back as taxis are few and far between. Overall very impressed and would definitely reccomend this hotel.
I stayed here in a B3 apartment. This is a good size, ideal for a couple and perhaps 1 child although I was on my own. The sleeping area is separated from the living area by a wardrobe and a cabinet containing crockery. Works fine, but as it is not a real wall, not ideal if you want privacy.
We stayed in the Sunway Playa Golf hotel for 4 nights in October 05, in one of the sea view apartments. Balcony was a good size, with a fold out clothes horse should you need to leave items drying during the day time. There is a washing machine, fridge and hob in each apartment. The reception staff were very friendly, but I found the bar staff a bit uninterested. The supermarket downstairs is very useful, but do be aware that you certainly pay for the convenience! We saw a bottle of Torres brandy in Sitges village for €8.99 which was €30.99 in the supermarket at the hotel! But for people staying in the apartments like us, its certainly useful to be able to nip down to get croissants or milk etc. The hotel is quite a distance from the town, which is ok as we were only there for a few days but I imagine it would become tiresome if you were there for longer or if you had small children. The bus is scheduled to leave the bus stop near the hotel at quarter to and quarter past each hour, but it can be very hit and miss.
I chose this hotel for our weekend break having read the reviews here, and I have to say it was an excellent decision.
Stylin in Sitges
Wow! This was a lot nicer than we thought it was going to be for the price. It is a large, but at the same time, private feeling hotel that is right on the beach. Taking the little bus into Sitges worked great but it only goes every 30 minutes. If you like to walk, run, rollerblade, or scooter, there is a wonderful wide boulevard right next to the sea. October was beautiful weather and not many tourists. If you have an apartment there is also a mini market right at the hotel.
We stayed 3 nights at the Sunway Playa Golf Hotel & Apartments in Sitges after a 2 week cruise across the Atlantic. I actually choose this property after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and it was A+.
We stayed at the Sunway San Jorge apartments in Sitges and found them ideal and great value at 35 euros a night. They were clean and well equipped and a 5 minute walk to the beach and 10-15 mins into the centre of town.
We stayed in this hotel for four nights after a visit to Barcelona and found it excellent value for money.
The hotel is located at the very end of the beachfront promenade - right on the beach and a romantic 30 minute walk to the heart of Sitges nightlife. We took a taxi to the hotel after arriving at Sitges train station (about 30 minutes from Barcelona) but walked everywhere afterwards.
Facilities in the hotel were excellent - two lovely pool areas, restaurant and bar and a decent shop downstairs that provides all the basics.
The apartment itself was very clean and comfortable providing all the necessary equipment for cooking, laundry etc.
We were delighted with our choice and would recommend this hotel to anybody travelling to Sitges.
I booked the Sunway Playa Golf for a week in February 2005 intending to use it as a base to explore the surrounding coastal area and the city of Barcelona. It proved to be perfect. I had a rental car for the duration so the slightly out of town location, about one mile along a gorgeous promanade from the centre of Sitges was no problem. Free on street parking outside the hotel was also a welcome bonus. The walk was not too demanding either!
Got a great price for this accommodation. Stayed there for three nights after visiting Barcelona and enjoyed the quiet location.
Situated at the end of the promenade at Sitges, it was a peaceful spot, if a little out of the resort. A Mini-train/bus went half hourly into the centre which you had to pay for. It stopped at 10pm so if you missed the last one, it was a long walk (40 mins) or a taxi.
The accommodation was very good. We had a mini-suite which included a washing machine in the kitchinette. Our balcony overlooked the golfcourse/sea which kept my husband entertained for hours!
Recently built, everything clean and well presented,
would stay here again for a quiet break.
