    “Occidental Hotel”

    We chose this hotel because it was adults only, away from the city centre and close to the beach, the rooms are lovely especially if you get a room with a sea view,they have a tv, ironing board, hairdryer and other little touches. We found the hotel to be convenient for us because we like to explore places when we are on holiday rather than sit by the pool or lay on the beach (which was literally just across the road). We stayed for a week and had a room only so cannot say what the food was like in the hotel, however, there are plenty of places to eat nearby so plenty of choices to choose from. There are plenty of bus stops within a short distance from the hotel so getting into the city centre or anywhere else is not a problem, there are even a few bus stops for the tourist hop on hop off bus very close to the hotel, very convenient. Can’t say that it was cheap to stay at the occidental for a week but if you don’t mind a long walk or a bus journey into the city then this is the hotel for you. The hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful although we didn’t really have much to do with the staff because we were out and about for most of our time in Barcelona exploring this wonderful city and it’s sights. Overall we were more than happy with our choice of hotel and will use it again when we return in the future, especially now that we know how easy it is to get out and about from this part of the city.

    “Fake pool”

    The reception staff was rude and unhelpful during our stay. It took them three tries to get us into the room we had originally booked. Not only that, but the air conditioner did not work in our room. On top of all of this, apparently, you have to pay for the chairs by the pool. The only free spots to sit at by the pool are bean bags which are quite impractical. The pool is also MUCH smaller than advertised and smells of sewage. On another note, the breakfast was satisfactory. There was a large selection of fresh fruit and assorted sweets. The eggs were questionable but otherwise, no complaints regarding the breakfast.

     Dear guest, Although we sincerely regret your disappointment with your stay in our Occidental Atenea Mar, we would like to thank you for sharing your comments as it will help us to identify areas of concern and act immediately so as to enhance our future guests' experience among us. We lament hearing that the service provided at réception fell short of your expectations as the entire team put a lot of effort to maintain the highest standards of service for our guests to fully enjoy their expérience among us. We have taken good note of your remark regarding the extra charge for the use of sunbeds by the pool and sincerely lament your disappointment, however we would like to take the opportunity to explain that our hotel is a urban beach hotel with a newly added yet limited solarium area, therefore in order to avoid the sunbed reservation, a fee has been implemented for guests wishing to spend the day by the pool with a complimentary drink included, the hotel as you well say is located next to the beach where our guests can also enjoy of a relaxing sunbath day within easy walking distance. On the other hand, free bean bags are provided for guests just wishing to use the pool. On the other hand, at Occidental we know that meals are an important aspect of our guests' overall holiday expérience in our hotels, this is why our team of Chefs prepare for each service a wide variety of delicacies to cater for all diet requirements and please the most demanding palates, we are therefore very pleased that we could satisfy yours. We hope we were able to clarify your concerns and encourage you for a future occasion to enquire about anything you may need to know about our installations and services to fully enjoy your Occidental experience. Once again, thank you for your visit and constructive critics, we hope that you had a nice journey back home and to have the pleasure of serving you again in our hotels worldwide ensuring you in advance of our best intentions at all times. Best regards, Occidental Atenea Mar Team

    “Pleasant enough but not my first choice ”

    The hotel itself can’t be faulted - friendly and helpful reception, clean rooms, and exactly as advertised. We stayed here for a Congress, so the hotel was booked for us. Be warned it’s a significant walk to the convention Center. While it doesn’t seem long, it does take 15-20 minutes, and realistically this means you can’t “pop back home” between lectures. Also the heat in summer makes this walk less pleasant. There are Taxi’s and buses, but it’s just important to note if you want to walk there twice in the day, that’s an hour walking. It’s also a significant distance from the metro. Not a problem in the day, but it makes exploring Barcelona a bit more tricky as a woman alone when you have to walk back several (quiet and poorly lit) blocks alone at night. Taxi from the Center was €12. So for those two reasons alone I would not rebook here. I did not use the beach but it was nearby. The roof top pool was small, but had a nice view. My room was cleaned well every day. There was a shower and a bath, a hairdryer, and the mattress was great. They have little cell phone Chargers at the bedside - nice touch (but did not work). I had a view but could not open the window. AC was good. Breakfast was fabulous - they have a great variety and we didn’t get bored after 5 days. The gym is very small - two treadmills, two bikes, a rower and an elliptical. There were free weights (only up to 10kg though) and arm machines but no leg machines. The step and tiny little weights had to do. But they do supply towels and water. If the hotel had been closer to the metro and the convention Center I would have rated it higher - not faults of the place but not what I enjoy.

    “Francesca is our HERO!!”

    Francesca, who checked us in, was so kind and her timing was perfect. After long hours of travel, she welcomed us and made us feel at home in Barcelona. Yes, the hotel is gorgeous, and close to the beach, and has a rooftop pool, and 3! different saunas, and a bar in the lobby to sip on some bebidos, and a delicious restaurant... but it was her hospitality that truly set this place apart! We look forward to a chance to go back.
