I stayed here over new years. I emailed the hotel to say it was my birthday and I got an upgrade of a room. I had booked a sea view already. I booked via booking.com who later wrote to me saying that I could not be guaranteed a sea view room. I wrote to the hotel directly who

Dear ShaneKiely, Thank you very much for sharing this great review of your recent stay at Occidental Atenea Mar. We are thrilled that you have enjoyed your stay and certainly agree that our dedicated staff plays a key role to our guests' overall experience. The entire team works very hard to ensure that we deliver a high standard of service and a warm, memorable experience.  I take this opportunity to inform you that the pool opens in the spring/ summer season when the weather gets warmer, as the pool is not heated, it is advertised that we open seasonally, in any case sorry for the inconveniences. Thank you for your very nice compliments for Francesca, as she works very hard every day to make sure our guests feel well attended to at all times and definitely she is an asset to our hotel. We will certainly relay your praising comments to her and we are sure she will be pleased to know that her efforts have been appreciated. Again we thank you for this wonderful review, it has been a pleasure for us to read and we look forward to welcoming you again soon. Best regards, Occidental Atenea Mar Team

Dear guest, We always find it nice to read that our guests went home with great holiday memories and we are very grateful for the time and effort you spent to share your personal experience at our Occidental Atenea Mar hotel with us and Tripadvisor readers. At Occidental we understand that food and drinks are important aspects of our guests’ overall expérience, this is why our chefs have created a varied assortment of options to please every type of palate. Reading that you were satisfied with the quality but at times a little bit disappointed with the variety, makes us feel that we are doing a good job but with possibilities to do even better, and therefore we will revise why during your stay we didn´t seem to achieve our goal to offer a wide choice in each and every meal. Regarding the location, we are in the great area of Poblenou, in front of the beach where you can practise water sports etc... and close to the shopping center Diagonal Mar, very close to the hotel we have a bus and metro stop to get to the city center in about 20/30 minutes. Once more we thank you for sharing your experience with us and look forward to welcoming you again soon. Kind regards, Occidental Atenea Mar Team

The process is static and needs to become more like "First-in First Served" than statically allocating a room whether ready or not and you have to wait for that room to become available. Many others got their rooms after I arrived with no premier status (all my colleagues). I

Dear guest, We are sincerely grateful for the time you spent to share your comments on your recent stay in our Occidental Atenea Mar hotel, your detailed review will certainly assist in order to keep on improving the quality of our services for our valued guests. We regret your disappointment for being unable to check in upon your early arrival and understand reading your review that apparently you were not properly informed about the appointed check in time starting at 14:00, although it should be reported on the booking confirmation; at the hotel we always do our utmost to make sure our guests can check in as soon as they arrive, unfortunately during periods of high occupancy it may not be possible considering that check out is at 12:00 and our housekeeping staff needs to undertake a thorough cleaning of the rooms before assigning them to new arrivals. In any case we always offer to keep the luggage at our luggage room until the room is ready so then the guest do not need to wait around the lobby area. Then again, we have taken good note of your comments and are truly sorry you did not feel attended enough on this occasion, we work daily to provide the best possible service, and we do agree that you should not have had to wait for such a long time to do the check-in. Please be assured that your comments will be taken into serious consideration and that they will help us to improve our services. Once again, thank you for your time and despite the issues you have raised following your stay, we hope that Occidental will remain an option for your next holiday and that we will have the opportunity to restore your faith in our company in the near future. Kind regards, Occidental Atenea Mar Team

Excellent location, very helpful staff, great food, especially for dinner. We had some problems with the air conditioning, but nothing to worry about. As it was my parents anniversary, there was a bottle of champagne and sweets waiting for them in the room (run of the house,

Good morning, Regarding your question about transportation, I would like to inform you that Uber does not work in Barcelona. The easiest way to come to the hotel from the airport is to take a taxi which is 35€ to 40€ approx, and the other option is to reserve a private transfer which is 55€ each way. For further questions, please contact me back directly at the hotel. Regards, Nela Gutiérrez Guest Experience Manager

Are there hairdryers in the room?
yes there is a hairdryer, but you may also find unwanted people in your room and have some of your possessions stolen. The security at this hotel last November was appalling.

When the pool is closed for the winter will the terrace still be open?
Not too sure, but I just wanted to step in and say whilst I respect the reviewer below and feel nothing but sympathy for your bad experience, that I have stayed at this hotel twice and had nothing but great experiences. I would say as you would at ANY hotel, lock everything away when you leave the room, and if you want to be cautious take any valuables with you when you leave the room, don’t leave luggage unattended etc I hope the hotel does address the other reviewer’s issues as security is key when staying in unfamiliar settings.
