The hotel was really nice & clean, but the staff (Paola, Lynn, Joanna, Danilo, Nichola, & Johnny) were AWESOME! I wanted to say thank you to the management and staff for the free room upgrade and the complimentary bottle of champagne. We will never forget our experience at Hotel Rec in Barcelona. Y'all made it the best place to visit I've ever been to. I hope to see everybody in the future again.

I arrived after too many flights over two days ... from Ho chih Minh city to Dubai to Barcelona, thankfully I had an emirates car as the taxis were on strike, I went from 93 degrees in Saigon to almost freezing, and didn't bring the right clothes...they have lots of nice features, a glass of wine or other beverage to help u relax...due to the TZ diff, my work and also trying to figure out how to get to the port without a taxi, I didn't get to enjoy much...the room was very comfy, nice and quiet, nice bed...all high class, never made it to breakfast but spent time at the poolside lounge on the top floor, the lady working there is amazing, food and drinks high quality and not too pricey, they have an event at the lounge bar every night, I got to enjoy the beer tasting night..Viday, the hostess at the lounge/bar was very kind and fun....All of the staff were caring, got to meet the gen manager, he came to ensure I was happy.....I look forward to returning for a longer stay with my husband next time.. hope they are not too full for me....
