Travel Blogs from Sitges
... I continued all the way to the bottom of La Rambla right to the waterfront. It’s an incredibly beautiful day for a walk like this – sunny with a light breeze blowing. I got a picture of the Columbus statue and then walked across to the waterfront. It’s arranged as kind of a “linear park” with benches overlooking the boat mooring area and yacht club and of course bicycle lanes. I walked to the dock going across to the large ...
Hola! Greetngs from Sitges. As it seemed that the blog from my last holiday was well received, I thought I had better write another to stave off any complaints. But first, an apology to my Spanish friends for not doing a dual translation.
Lo siento amigos. No tengo un ordenador con teclado normal. Tengo solo mi Tablet. Asi que es dificil escribir muy rapido, y escribir todo en otra idioma tambien seria mas dificil y despacio. Espero entiendas la mayoria de mis correos y que ...
We still need to work a few days/weeks and the preparations are not yet fully completed - even though we are quite far - thanks to my German professor Thomas :-)
The end of September, we will go and visit our families in Germany & Belgium to say goodbye and make a short stop at the Oktoberfest in Munich to drink away the tears before returning back to Spain.
... supposed to be a village but no one wanted to fund it so it ended up a free park. Inside are all sorts of strange buildings, bridges, walkways, etc which are fun to wander through.
After a long walk through the many windy paths of the park we got the metro back to the port where we found a nice seafood place to have dinner where I had a delicious seafood ...
... time I was taken to the right hotel, which ended up being, you guessed it, relatively close to the airport. Anyway, this trip was also not entirely without incident. The guy picked up some clients on the way, proceeded to take them to their locations, way off my route, and expected me to pay for the full meter, which was happily clocking up drachmas (yes, this was before the euro) from the time I got in. I paid what I thought was a fair price, took my ...

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.
