I booked directly through Barceló and joined their rewards club. My intention was to visit Isla Magica, being that this is the closest Hotel to the Park.
I stayed for four nights and paid separately for parking.
When I got there and parked I couldn't find the elevator so had to climb stairs with all the luggage.
When it was - finally - my turn to check in staff was not specially friendly, I particularly disliked the fact that I was asking for clarifications regarding the 5% voucher offered on direct bookings and the answer I got was "I will first explain other things and will get to that part later". 2 minutes later I had to ask the same thing again...
When I got to my room it felt smalish and felt a bit cheated regarding the doors to the outside seen in pictures, as it seemed they led to a balcony when they lead nowhere. Was given a room on the first floor with no view at all. It made me wonder if booking directly had any relevant advantage other than the 5% voucher.
Parking is overly expensive at 15 euros per night. Breakfast is 18 euros and there are no alternatives nearby other than Isla Magica (where food is cheaper by the way).... Pools are very attractive but open only at 11 am, the same exact time the Park Isla Magica opens.
The Hotel is far from the center of Sevilla. Distance is walkable up to a certain point if it isn't overly hot, but we returned by taxi (8 euros/ 4 km).
As very positive notes: they have a lot of free activities for children my daughter loved - revolving around the pirates theme - and a train that takes guests to the Parks entrance at selected times of day.
Wifi is brilliant.
The price of the stay per night, excluding breakfast and parking is very good - about 80 euros per night.
I would return, being that this is the best option to go to Isla Magica, but with lower expectations.
