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.

... campsite was 5 star luxury with spacious pitches complete with water and waste hook up for only £14 per night. This included free use of their spa facilities, pool, jacuzzi and sauna (which amazingly were open)…..but guess what…….not only did you have to wear speedos but it was also obligatory to wear a swimming hat!!!! The idea of me and Paul sitting in a jacuzzi in swimming hats was way too funny to ...
... of Ireland but can't take Ireland out of the girl lol!! Across the road to a lovely bar and managed to grab the last 2 seats - up at the bar which limited people watching but the bonus was we had a great chat with the barman. He had travelled through the states and Canada and had seen most of the world during his time on cruise ships. He had also lived in Spain for a number of years so some interesting perspectives. As I say - great chat over a lovely bottle ...
We were both really tired today but had to get some washing and motorhousework done before we could sit in the sun. We had a nice long breakfast outside ( and a nice long lunch) then our peace was shattered by the arrival of what we assume to be a school party of Spanish teenagers!!
They occupied some chalets further down from us, girls ...
... the distance we culd see the ocean and the sail like building commissioned by the city, and designed by an American Architect, that we had passed on our way from the dock. In true Gaudi attention to detail style, the bench is functional and designed for comfort, with each curve a kaleidescope of mosaiced tiles. Apparently Gaudi hated straight lines and this is evident in all of the works we saw.
The piece de resistance was kept to last, the Basilica of the Sagrada ...
... I was a little sceptical but I still ate it. It was really oily but the taste grew on me. I was still bummed about not getting to do the street art tour (it's only offered on Saturdays) so did some research online and found another free walking tour that runs daily. I sent the info to Shikha cos I knew she was interested too and we arranged to meet there the next day. I had a really lazy morning today and then at 5:30pm I met up with Shikha as planned. We waited around for ...
