"Wonderful place to work and have fun at the same time"
For the person like me who has been pampered in many top class hotels in the world, Le Meridien seemed unique and beautiful Mediterranean beach hotel to work and enjoy with colleagues. I enjoyed the most seeing Dali's sculptured artworks everywhere and wonderful beach restaurant. It just requires little more attention for room service, hygiene and prices.
"Lovely hotel on the beach "
We decided to have a long weekend away from the main city at this lovely hotel and spa. It has interesting history, is right on the beach with fabulous staff. The hotel interior is gorgeous, really spacious and comfortable rooms and we were lucky enough to have a view of the beach. The two rooftop pools were great with lots of different spa baths, saunas, an oxygen room and big outdoor couches to lounge on. The beach itself is nice but it was a little too cold for us to swim at this time of year. The breakfast in the hotel was fantastic and really reasonably priced. So much variety and the eggs were always cooked perfectly every time. The spa itself is a really wonderful and relaxing experience, with a range of treatments. The only slightly odd thing I found is that the treatment I had which is oil based and (from India I believe), was so oily that the masseuse had to wear a long plastic 'bib' which obviously is noisey with movement. Overall we had a really great time at the hotel, it was a really relaxing place to stay and it also has loads of great little restaurants down the road.
We spent 4 nights at this property and were extremely pleased. First off, the property itself is a modern masterpiece on the order of an art museum. This modern hotel/spa has been ingeniously constructed around the original 100 year old traditionally-styled facility and the result is a treasure. There was a seasonal exhibit of multiple Salvador Dali bronzes inside and outside on display during our stay. (We are Dali fans and did take a day trip to the Dali Museum in Figueres) At check-in at the Le Meridien Ra we were offered the breakfast buffet at a 50% discount if we committed in advance for our entire stay. We accepted the offer. The discounted price of about 16 Euros each was a reasonable value based on the quality of the food, but it was an outstanding value when you consider the incredible outdoor dining area facing the Mediterranean Sea. We enjoyed this beautiful setting each morning of our stay.
"End of Season, but great hotel"
This is a seasonal hotel and it was clear that things were winding down. However, the staff were super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I sadly don't speak Spanish, but the staff spoke perfect English and never made me feel bad for my poor Spanish. The rooms are very spacious and the beds are super comfortable. The food and beverage offering when we were there was slightly limited, however there are a number of restaurants a short walk along the promenade and Barcelona is only an hour away on the train, so it's close enough to do an afternoon trip and have dinner there and still get back to the hotel in a reasonable time. I feel that this place is really best suited for adult at this time of the season rather than for families as if the weather is not as good then options are limited. All in all, it's a beautiful resort style hotel which should be enjoyed for its peacefulness. If you are seeking an action packed holiday I don't think this is your place. We will be back.
Defintely not a five star hotel, room was very basic and the bathroom was shabby, service was sadly lacking too. Will not be going back. Our bags were still in reception three hours after we checked in and we had to take them to the room ourselves. The sliding door in the room was not secure, and was fixed with a bolt to the floor. The service arouund the pool was non-existant this was probably due to the fact it was September, although the hotel was virtually fully booked.
