Historical Traveler Reviews Melia Sitges
A real (excellent) 4 * hotel
I stayed in Melia with my girlfriend. Melia is all you can expect from a 4* hotel. Rooms are very nice, beds are GREAT (never ever slept in het better hotelbed - not even in 5* hotels, and Melia has a pilow menu !). Rooms are more comfortable than Hiltons or Sheratons. Very friendly personal. The pool and poolside are a bit small will do for a few days, the beaches are nearby.
The hotel is located about 15 minutes walk to town, we took a taxi which costs about 5 Euro´s. Also the hotel is close to the Sitges habour which has very nice restaurants - the harbour is a bit like St Tropez.
We did try the food in the hotel and it´s not bad at all, and normal prices (not regular 4 or 5 * hotel food prices).
We did saw other hotels in Sitges but we are convinced this is the best hotel to go.
Sitges is a great place to go, Barcalona is only 30 min away with train. They say Sitges is gay friendly, I believe that. During our stay, especially during weekdays 80% of the people in Sitges are Gay.
In the weekend is a real party in Sin street (in city centre - you won´t mis), also for hetrosexuals.
Just a little to out of town
very nice hotel, especially the breakfast spread but it was just a few minutes to far from town.
A successful return visit
My family and I stayed here last year and enjoyed it enough that we took the unusual step for us of making a return visit this month. Anyway I am very glad that we did. Not only was it as good as last year, but it was even cheaper, working out at just €109 per room per night, including breakfast for 2.
For future reference, always book directly with solmelia directly on their website and join their frequent stayers program. This entitles you to a free breakfast for each breakfast purchase which represents a big saving for doing nothing.
The only real gripe we have is that the leisure club downstairs is not free for the hotel residents to use. As a result it was almost completely unused,and I put on 4lbs.
What a bargain
After a hectic woderful few days in Barcelona was amazed by the fantastic relaxing stay at melia sitges. Very familly orientated but as a couple still thought it was brilliant. friendly staff and great paella. bit of a walk to downtown but taxi cheap. would go again with or without kids. Rooms fab. Cocktails even better.. going back to Barcelona in 6 weeks....yippee
Good hotel, but watch out for room discription !
Good, business type hotel, a little of a walk from the main part of Sitges town, but for peace and quiet thats no bad thing !
One complaint - We booked a "superior double room" directly from the hotel web site, but got a twin room when we arrived. Upon complaining we were told that the hotel has no rooms with double beds except for the suites, and that the only difference between a standard room and a superior double is that the room is a bit bigger and has a sea view.
The Manager was very polite and curteous in explaining, and even said he was trying to get some rooms changed but because it was part of a big chain it takes time. He wanted me to fill in a complaint form so that he could use it as evidence of the need to supply some doubles.
Fantastic hotel/Highly recommend
This is a 4 star superior hotel and deserves it's rating. Smart, clean rooms, comfortable beds, mini bar, free safe, rooms all with partial sea view. Great breakfast. Tried buffet evening meal and was also happy with food and service. Nice pool, sunbeds, pool towels, garden. Lifeguard and childrens organiser. Easy walk into Sitges town, 20 minutes. Beaches 5 mins. walk. Great hotel. Great location. Will return.
I'll stay here again!
I've just returned from my second stay at the Melia Sitges. The hotel is a good standard, business hotel which can be a bit bizare if you are on holiday.
The rooms are good, request one with a pool/sea view. Bathrooms are excellent even if the toiletries are a little less than fabulous.
Leisure facilities are very good - the pool area is excellent. There is a gym - run under seperate management - so when you use it first you have to agree the number of times you'll use the facilities during your stay. If like me your intentions aren't matched by actual workouts you end up paying for the unused session/s.
Breakfasts are very good. Pool-side lunch adequate (what can you do wrong to a sanwich or burger) but I'd skip on dinner. There's a wealth of excellent restaurants 15 minutes walk away.
The major drawbacks of this property - slow taxi collections, not very nice toiletries and the charges for the gym. Having said that it's still a very pleasant place to stay if you don't want to be in the thick of it in the town centre.
Fantastic hotel and location
This hotel is excellent...a proper 4 star in every respect...super rooms all would appear to have sea views..a well maintained property..in a great location....seems to attract business people, spanish families and aircrew..Sitges offers excellent beaches, shopping and civilized nightlife ...absolutely NO lager louts....
Friendly Staff and Fantastic Views!
Beautiful facility just far enough from Barcelona to provide the perfect vacation setting. Friendly staff, clean spacious rooms with wonderful views at the south end of the resort village of Sitges.
Loved Sitges, the Melia
Went to Sitges last year & stayed at the Melia - great food, good cocktails. Not really a family hotel, more corporate but they made my family feel really welcome & were very accomodating.There is also a wonderful Spanish restaurant on the east side of the church & a some great bars who can't do enough for families with young children.

... for the day and Paul snuck off to Tiffanys and bought engagement rings then surprised Craig with a proposal. The drag queen at dinner brought them up and sang them a song. John sat opposite me at dinner and he was a bit of a know-it-all. He was South African. After dinner we went our own way but we were all going to the same venue - bear village on the beach - and we had a dance. We got home at about 2.30 am.

"And now she's swimming in the ocean at night, she's so brave."
I rolled my eyes and started towards the water. It seemed like the simplest things I did blew everyone's minds simply because I was alone and female. If anything, it bothered me more that girls felt too weak to do it themselves. Random girls of the night, the ocean's not such a scary ...
... staircases that we know, are moving ramps, similar to the moving sidewalks we encounter in airports, but on a slant that takes the passengers from one level to another. Ideal for those with luggage or strollers and also for those in wheelchairs, no auxiliary elevators are needed. And in Barcelona, at some particularly hilly sites, there are even outdoor escalators that will take you up and down hill. What happens when it rains, I have no idea. If you visit ...

... breakfast we checked out and asked that the hotel arrange for us to retrieve our car from the car-park. It's a long story, but the short version is that the hotel has some underground reserved car spots in another apartment block across the road from the reception. To go in or out you need the receptionist from the hotel to unlock the gate and then to guide you up a narrow spiral drive from the underground and into the street. I guess they don't trust your ...
