Rating Hotel Port Sitges Resort, Sitges Spain

We had high expectations to our stay at the Hotel Port Sitges Resort. We wanted to stay outside the town, and enjoying seafront views and especially silence. These expectations were met, but my rating reflects the fact that the hotel had no inhouse bar or restaurant, and it was pricey compared to what you can pay elsewhere, and at that price, one would expect breakfast to be included in the price.
 
Rating Hotel Port Sitges Resort: BBBB- (3,70 points)
  • Location: BBBB+
  • Service: BBBB
  • Room: BBBB

The Hotel Port Sitges resort is located by one of the town's marinas, north of Sitges. It is a 15-20 minute walk from the town itself, but it is recommended that you take a taxi to and from the train station if you carry heavy luggage.

The view from our room - the marina and the Mediterranean beyond
Hotel Port Sitges Resort enjoys a stunning location, with view to the marina, a short walk to the nearest beach and many restaurants and bars within reach. It is not the best location for elderly or handicapped, as you either have to climb long stairs or hills in order to get around.

Living area with sofa/sofabed and TV
Service is good both in the reception and by the cleaning personell. The latter did a very decent job cleaning our room.

The rooms at Hotel Port Sitges Resort are in fact appartments. Our room was located on the second floor. It consisted of a living space and a small kitchen, a nice bathroom, and a bedroom with twin beds.
The living space and bedroom were generously sized, the bathroom was on the smaller side. Neutral, and a little dated decor, bright yellow walls, brown marble floors. The bathroom was completely redecorated in light brown marble, with inlays of different coloured stones. There were small signs of wear and tear, but no needs of serious maintenance.

Kitchen area after one of our breakfasts
The living space had a sofa/sofabed and a round dining table seating two. There were a TV, with just a few channels, one being the BBC World. More international channels would have been very much welcomed. 

There was good sized balcony sith table and two chairs with a wonderful view to the marina.

The kitchen had two cooking tops, the utensils for basic cooking for two, nothing more. this was more than sufficient to prepare a decent breakfast and save the euros you would have to pay in the breakfast room. There is, for your information, a small convinient store providing basic groceries for your cooking 5-10 minutes away from the hotel.

The bedroom had twin beds and enough storage space for two. There was a safe, to be operated by the help of a credit card. It was a little hard to figure out how the open and close the door, but by the aid of the reception personnel we managed. The credit card was needed just to open and close, and additional costs will not be charged to your room.

There was very good high speed wireless internet access in the room and throughout the Hotel Port Sitges Resort, in fact one of the best I have experienced during my travels. Another big asset was a very good air conditioning system in both bed room and living room. 

Breakfast was served in the breakfast rom at Hotel Port Sitges Resort, and was not included. At € 155 per night, it should have been included in the price.

Facilities:
  • Breakfast room, no inhouse restaurant or bar 
  • Great swimming pool and sauna (the latter not in working order when we visited)
  • Free wi-fi throughout hotel, free PC by the reception, excellent a/c throughout the hotel 
  • Hotel well cleaned and maintained. Small signs of wear and tear.  
Bedroom had two comfortable twin beds
I booked the Hotel Port Sitges Resort at www.booking.com. At € 155 it has been the most expensive hotel we have stayed in during our vacations in Catalonia.

The Hotel Port Sitges Resort is a good hotel to stay in, but is, in my mind, overpriced compared to what you get. Breakfast should, at least, be included in the price.

The Hotel Port Sitges Resort has its cleas assets. The swimming pool, wi-fi, and airconditioning to mention a few.

The Hotel Port Sitges Resort is, due to this, given a BBBB- rating. To include breakfast, have a fitness room and a inhouse bar would rise the score further.
