Located in the heart of the Aiguadolç marina in the northern corner of the charismatic town of Sitges and well communicated with the international airport “El Prat” (Barcelona), the hotel is located right on La Marina and Balmins beaches, only a 10 minute walk from the centre of Sitges and near the Terramar Golf Club, one of the best golf courses in the region.
The hotel provides a total of 307 rooms and has beautiful gardens from which to enjoy the swimming pool and cocktail bar. As an alterative to the leisure options, the hotel also has a fitness centre with a heated swimming pool as well as an extensive range of services such as a hairdresser, sauna, fitness classes, massages and beauty treatments.

The city
Sitges is on the Mediterranean coast, some 35 km to the south of Barcelona and only 15 minutes from the airport. The coast is famous internationally as a resort destination and is also a great place for business meetings. This privileged location gives the town a mild and warm climate.
Sitges has preserved many of its important medieval features and of it history as a fishing and peasant village, and offers visitors a valuable architectural and cultural heritage, also thanks to artists and patrons such as Santiago Rusiñol, Ramón Casas, Miquel Utrillo and Charles Deering. This creative impulse has led to the creation of new projects over recent years such as the International Epic Car Rally, the International Film Festival, the International Jazz Festival and the Concerts in the Summer Cycle.
All of this made Sitges an important centre for modernism and for the "Americans", men who, on their return from their American adventure, ordered grand mansions to be built by modernist architects.
