Location is very good, very close to beach, and beachside cafes/restaurants, 15-20 min walking distance to train station and old town. Hotel is very nice for a 2 star, with just the stairs looking a bit tatty. Room was clean, but was not cleaned in our stay, despite us putting the please clean room sign out (although this was after about 2pm). Tap water is horrible in Barcelona area - but bottled water cheap to buy. Breakfast fine - ham, croissants, squash, coffee, hot bread, butter, jam, cereals, drinkable water! Was a bit miffed when we were not allowed on the rooftop terrace at about 6pm. We wanted to buy a drink in the downstarirs bar and take it up, but they said we weren't allowed as they had sprayed some mozzie spray... Well this is fair enough for 30 mins, but they said it was toxic all night, which for an open air terrace was somewhat surpsising!! Downstairs is ok for drinking, but was very cold as is in shadow in the afternoon and we could see that lovely sun on the unusable terrace - madness!! I went up to terrace during the day to take a peek and it is really good. However, the staff made up for this annoyance by letting us check out late on the final day. We had been at a wedding, so didn't get in til 6am, so the extra time granted was very welcome and we are incredibly grateful to the staff for this.

... we decided to give that one a miss (sorry Sadie)!
We were keen to set off exploring the next day but due to a very spectacular thunderstorm with monsoon rain, this was delayed until after lunch. Armed with a map of the town we headed off for a walk to explore Vilanova……the walk started off quite pleasantly through residential streets and we enjoyed checking out the posh villas with their pools and ...
... We've met some lovely people on our travels.
After a great sleep on one of the most comfortable beds and lovely breakfast we went off to do some more sightseeing. The gothic quarter and cathedral are amazing. Sat and had lunch sitting in the shade, facing the Cathedral, people watching (as usual) and listening to a classical guitarist. What a beautiful afternoon. Back on the bus to Villanova, delighted that the next day was a fast day - have eaten ...
We caught the 8.30 bus from outside the campsite gates directly to Plaza Catalunya in Barcelona - a 75 min journey, 5.10e each way. It was a beautifulday, clear and bright.

We decided to walk straight to the ...
... Starbucks, tram, metro home. Love the trams here so clean and cool and all linked in to the metro and buses. I think all cities should have trams they are so cool -fast, quiet, clean and cute.

Just want to tell you - I was watching one of many movies when Peter nudged me to tell me it looked like a woman had just passed away. He noticed her 'husband' doing the cross sign in front of her before calling for assistance. Next thing a number of Emirates personnel were around her, oxygen equipment, defibrilator all ready to go and no sign of panic ...
