... fractured spanish they were trying to tell people below that they had locked themselves out by closing the balcony door behind them. But they were confusing potential rescuers by having a huge argument with each other about what the spanish for "locked out" was. I volunteered to go and tell reception before blood started to flow. But in reception i struggled a bit because i also didnt know the word for "locked out". I had at this point forgotten that they spoke English. Anyway with ...
... in order!
After sleeping off the sangria we ventured out into the afternoon sunshine (whoops). We found a large group of people milling around a square divided into two groups with matching coloured shirts, so we decided to stop and see if a fight was going to break out (locally known as a soccer match). Suddenly a person was lifted up out of the middle of the crowd..then the person they were standing on was hoisted up, and ...
Went to Sitges today. It's nothing but a small town on a gorgeous beach. It was about a 30 minute train ride. I had some yummy seafood on the strip along the beach. Wondered around the town and shops. And laid out for a good 2 hours. Have to work on that ...
... well little pieces of artwork that have been found on the back of ciggarette packets or menus, to his first actual larger scale portrait made at the age of 13 or 15, one or the other (Man in a beret (or hat)). Anyway, I loved it. Wasnt going to get the audio guide either but so glad I did! It was absolutely worth it! I then meander my way from the Picasso museum heading down La Rambla. On my way however I stumbled across the Cathedral. I initally thought it was a Gaudi, but it wasn't. ...
... the La Sagrada Familia, the Holy Family Church. We pulled up on one side of the church and it was very impressive with what has been completed to date. The outside is incredible with the flowing lines and the unique patterns of the birth of Jesus on the one hand and the other entrance which reflects the passion of Jesus. Our guide pointed out the controversy of the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Melia Sitges
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.
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'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.
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.
