Best for Families - Expert review of Pullman Barcelona Skipper

Perfect for beach-lovers who need mod cons.

Just back from the seafront and with two appealing pool areas, the Skipper is a hit with those seeking to relax away from the crowds and, especially, those with kids in tow. It attracts a notable business crowd, but the upside of this is more space in the pool during the day and a quiet dining room if you opt for a late breakfast.

Location: 

While not on the beach itself, the Skipper is a short hop away, and close to the lively bars and restaurants of the Port Olímpic.

Bedrooms: 

Rooms are large, tastefully done out in warm colours, and well appointed with huge, comfortable beds, Nespresso coffee machines, pillow menus and Roger & Gallet toiletries. Superior rooms (from the fourth floor up) face out to sea, while Classic rooms look back over the city.

Public areas: 

If we're honest, the Skipper is not exactly characterful, and its brightly lit public areas (such as the large lobby and bar on the ground floor) were really created with its sizeable business clientele in mind. There are cosier corners, however, such as the little first-floor lounge with books and magazines.

Leisure facilities: 

Undoubtedly the finest attributes of the hotel are its two pools, with ample sunbathing space around both. The rooftop pool has a great view and is deeper – children will have more fun in the ground-floor pool. There's also a playground for them.

Service: 

The staff on reception are reasonably efficient (though allow a little time to check out), but for a five-star hotel you never really get that pampered feeling.
