My family was extremely pleased with Amarante Villas. The property was beautiful and Natalia, our concierge, was extremely helpful and pleasant to work with. She answered all of our requests immediately. The driver she arranged was also extremely pleasant and helpful. The only service we would have appreciated would be to have had coffee and tea provided for along with milk and sugar. We were extremely tired after our trip and had to find the local store for this. In the past, homes have also provided fresh fruit and cheese and crackers. Not a requirement, just a suggestion! Thank you again for your wonderful accommodations! In our future travels, we will be sure to contact Amarante Villas. Mariellen Guerra

Thank you for your email. We stayed in unit 43 at Plaça d'Antonio López in mid June 2013. We were looking for an apartment that was well located in Barcelona to enable us to get around on foot. In terms of location, the accommodation could not be better. We were within easy walking distance to the Gothic quarter as well as the Born and Barceloneta districts. The Placa Catalunya area was also perfectly walkable via the Rambla and the amazing Boqueria fresh food market.oración The unit itself was accessed from the main street via a lift. On arrival, we were shown the entrance to the building by the taxi driver that was pre-booked by Amarante. However, it was not obvious how to use the buzzer entry system to get in. We were told to report to level 6 and yet there was no Level 6 button on the front door. Fortunately we were able to gain access when a guest exited the building. This could do with looking at to make entry easy and stress free! Once on level 6 your staff were very helpful and we quickly gained access to our apartment. The apartment itself was wonderfully spacious and the full length windows with balconies provided a great deal of direct sunlight into the apartment and enabled us to connect with the street activity below. Some may complain about traffic noise. However, all the window units are double glazed and ultimately the apartment is located on two very busy main roads. We personally considered that the traffic noise was perfectly bearable and was a small price to pay for the fantastic location of the apartment and the aspects from all of the windows. The style of the apartment was excellent and had a sophisticated city character. Although fine for our visit, I would imagine that you will soon need to keep on top of the maintenance of the more heavily used parts of the apartment such as the bathrooms. Because we were so busy during our 4-day stay, we were not able to make use of the roof top terrace or swimming pool. Your questionnaire in the room asked whether this area would benefit from a drinks bar and waiter service. I think this could be a good addition and we perhaps would have used this between coming back from a day out and going out again for the evening. To conclude, we very much enjoyed our stay with you and we will be adding your apartment of the list of places to consider staying in during future visits to Barcelona. Best regards Damon Hackley and Claire Barrett

Our experience has been a very positive one. The booking and arrangements were very straight forward and all went to plan. The apartment was exactly as it was displayed on the web site. It was very clean and very beautiful. The outdoor space and the loungers and chairs were perfect. It was also a fantastic location. We would book through Amarante again and would book this apartment again. Regards Karen Young

Dear team Accommodation The accommodation was excellent. It was very clean and well equipped. The description on the website was accurate. We were very pleased with this, and as a result would definitely consider using your company again to identify holiday accommodation. We were all very pleased with the level of accommodation, and its location. Great value for money. Customer Service Your customer service is excellent, from the moment I booked the apartment, the team at Amarante were very helpful. They ensured the accommodation contained a cot, responded to my questions in a timely manner, and provided me with all the information I needed. In addition we were allowed into the accommodation prior to the designated check in and allowed to stay a little longer than the required check out. The check in was perfect with your representative providing us with the right level of information to allow us to enjoy our stay. Overall comments We had a fantastic weekend in Barcelona, made all the more enjoyable because of the great accommodation and service provided by your company. We will definitely consider using your company again, and would not hesitate to recommend you to friends/ family and colleagues. Thanks Kindest regards Alison

We worked with Natalia who was fantastic. She is very knowledgeable, patiently answered our many questions, responded very promptly and built a great rapport. Would definitely use her services again. The apt was great, clean, modern and well stocked with everything we needed. Staff at building very friendly, responsive and helpful. Would stay there again! Two minor downsides to the apt: 1) They only give you one set of keys, which is challenging for 2 couples. They say you can just leave the key 1 block away at a hotel when you go out, as a method to circumvent the one key issue, but that is not very convenient. 2) The buzzer, to be able to buzz people up from the street, was not working. Therefore, we had to go to front door of building every time to let someone in, which was inconvenient. We will recommend Amarante to our friends. Thanks, Kristin

Hi The service from Natalia was excellent, although it would have been nice to put a face to the name and meet her. I thought she would be checking us in. The apartment is exactly as described (even better than in the photos) in a lovely street and central. The only problem I found is that it is in a noisy location (traffic) which went all night, so it was hard to get a peaceful night's sleep. This may just be how it is to live in Barcelona, but it would be useful for people to know this. Perhaps it would also be useful to have some TV channels in other languages (English, Dutch, etc).

Hi There, We all thought that the apartments were fantastic - wonderful interiors and great location for the beach with helpful staff. We had a wonderful time. The only thing is that they don't change your towels on a daily basis which would have been nice and so instead you have to use the same one for the whole stay. Great choice though and would definitely recommend and stay there again. Many thanks, Kathryn

The apartment was beautiful and it was great being in a quiet residential section of Barcelone. Our only complaint would be that if you are going to only provide a very specialized pod-type coffee maker you should leave your renters with some of those pods (first we bought ground coffee and then the wrong size pods). It was very frustrating having to go out for coffee every morning. A simple French press would have been much appreciated and we would recommend it for future renters.

We recently spent a wonderful week in the Luxury Harbour Penthouse Apartment. We were accompanied by our daughter, son and daughter in law. We have high expectations from our holiday accommodation preferring it to be a home away from home and provide comfort and luxury. We were very pleased with our choice. Natalia from Amarante met us at the apartment to greet us and explain the workings of the different aspects of the apartment. She was very helpful and answered all our questions even recommending restaurants and local markets. She kept in contact through the week to let us know the pool serviceman was coming and to check that this was suitable for us. She also advised us that we could call her if we had any concerns. Prior to our arrival my son had contacted Natalia and Vincent because he was concerned that we (mum, dad and sister) were arriving much earlier in the day and wanted to go shopping while waiting for the their flight to arrive. What to do with all the luggage? Vincent kindly pointed us in the direction of a luggage storage facility around the corner from our chosen department store where we could leave the bags. It was fantastic costing 9 Euros for the afternoon. This apartment is beautifully appointed on the top (5th) floor of a modern building and has a private pool just for you on the roof. (This is a horizon pool that is on automatic so may not always be at maximum height early morning, but who is up that early in Barcelona and it was always an enjoyable dip before breakfast and then a great place to hang out during the day and evening.) The three bedrooms and three bathrooms accommodated our family of five beautifully and the two lounge areas one up, one down, gave that get away space for quiet reading or just being alone. The apartment was clean and comfortable and had a good supply of kitchen equipment, bathroom soaps and loo paper. The Weber charcoal BBQ also worked very well, (just check you can buy the charcoal and starters as not all shops sell it, we had to try about 4-5 shops). Super fast and excellent Wi-Fi in the apartment and with some Sky TV channels although cannot be more specific as did not use the TV/ DVD player. The beach is a one minute walk from the apartment and what a beautiful beach, just like New Zealand. I found it hard to believe we were in the middle of the city as the beach was so pristine. Tapas bars, restaurants, shops and supermarkets were close at hand and a 35 minute walk or a quick bus ride had you in the Plaza Catalunya shopping center. We enjoyed our week in the Luxury Harbour Penthouse Apartment and if we are ever in Barcelona again we would gladly return.

We had a great stay. Loved Barcelona. Much nicer than Madrid and so much more fun. The apartment was great. A couple things that could be better. The bath was pretty filthy and needed to be cleaned by my wife before we used it. The TV in the lounge room isn’t plugged in so it doesn’t work. There is a bit of noise from the people upstairs. Outside of that, the location is great and the place is very well laid out.

We liked the apartment that we rented. There were a few minor problems that can be easily fixed. The most frustrating thing was having no information on the appliances except for the oven and TVs. We had to guess at how to work the coffee maker (Nespresso has a very limited U.S. market), the stove, the washer, and the dryer. We also had to discover for ourselves that the washer and dryer cannot be run at the same time--the circuit breaker tripped. However, there was NO information to warn us of this problem in advance.

The apartment was lovely & very central. Claudia was very helpful. On the downside an apartment in the building was being renovated & the noise from the workers tools, singing & shouting to each other went on almost ceaselessly all week. We had also been given a list of instructions telling us we could be asked to leave if we were noisy at night. No-one bothered to tell our neighbours in the building next door,who played bongo drums & shouted at each other til late at night & all weekend. We were out a lot so we didnt have to put up with the noise all the time, but I have a heart condition & have to rest when I get tired & it was difficult with all the noise. I think we should have been told the apartment underneath us was being renovated when we made our booking . Barcelona is beautiful & we loved being here & will definitely come back. However I''m not sure we would use your agency again. The apartment was great but the noise was really stressful & not what I would expect from a company that advertises "luxury" apartments.

Overall we had a good stay and the stay we met were lovely and very helpful. That being said I was disappointed to find that the towels were reasonably old and small and the throws on the beds were not changed between guests which I didn't feel was acceptable (nor hygienic). Whilst the apartment was generally to a high standard, the bathrooms were a little dated with broken plugs and visible lime-scale between the tiles. The various remotes also did not have working batteries within them. These smaller points of detail are often what gives an apartment the "wow" factor and it was disappointing that the attention to these details was not always in place.

The apartment was excellent - exactly as described and the service from Natalia and Margeaux was very good, nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The location worked very well - very close to the beach and a fairly easy walk into town as well. There weren''t any toilet rolls in the apartment when we arrived which was inconvenient but with shops so close that was easily rectified if a little irritating. The infinity pool on the roof was a great luxury and we used it every day - it would have been even more wonderful if it had been heated even slightly - I imagine that a cool pool is lovely in the het of the summer but in the Autumn it takes some nerve to get in (surely some solar panels would heat the water fairly cheaply ?) Overall a great stay - the family thoroughly enjoyed Barcelona

The apartment is much more beautiful than it is functional. It makes no sense to rent an expensive "luxury" apartment that provides no soap in the bathrooms for handwashing or garbage bags. When the rental agency stints on small details like this, it leaves a bad impression. Also, it makes no sense to offer renters nice amenities like dishwashers and clothes washers without any instructions on how to use them; if you leave people guessing, your appliances may not last as long as they should. Also, the beautiful master bathroom tub is very difficult and impractical to use; we wound up using the other shower stalls instead. My advice: the manager/owner should spend a week living here, then he/she will understand how to make this place as comfortable as it is lovely.

This is a spacious and luxurious duplex apartment, with a lower floor of bedrooms and an upper floor of common areas. Everything was in excellent condition and spotless. Our adult occupants were all very pleased with this apartment.

It was a very bad experience on our part. The house was so dated and dirty. The beds were terrible. They were so squeaky that my sister and her husband had to stay in the hotel after the first night. Some of the air conditioners didn''t work. We paid higher rent in hope to get a nice place to stay for our vacation since your website listed that apartment as luxury. It turned out to be one of the worst apartment that we''ve stayed for our 12 day vacation.

We loved the apartment and the location. The services were fantastic - concierge, hotel and cleaning. The only issue was our air conditioning did not work in one apartment. This was a great place for our family.

I dealt with Natalia at AmaranteLVA. She responded immediately to my original request (which I made via TripAdvisor), and answered her phone straight away whenever I phoned her. She was careful, diligent and professional. At first I was not sure about the payment arrangements (it seemed odd to bring cash for the balance), but after speaking to Natalia (she explained the way payments work as a function of property and timings) I felt confident that things would go smoothly, which they did. We absolutely loved our apartment and would definitely recommend AmaranteLVA, and we hope to come back one day. KT.

We had a great time staying at the apartment! Everything went very smoothly once we arrived in Barcelona, we were met in the apartment by a very service minded person who delivered the keys and information. The apartment has an excellent location with everything nearby, and the apartment itself is exactly as in the pictures- very modern and cozy. Thank you for a very good stay in Barcelona!

Thiss is our second home in Barcelona. We’ve stayed here a couple times and we LOVE it. The interior design is spectacular; I m an artist and I get very inspired here. We got a very warm welcome from the Owners; they also put a lot of thought in preparing the basic things like coffee, juice, toiletries — very very sweet. The location is amazing, feels safe, and the apartment is clean and well taken care of. This is one of our most favorite apartments around the world and we travel a lot. We love having breakfast on the outdoor terrace!

The apartment was extremely well decorated, had everything we needed and had a homey yet elegant ambience. The owners went out of their way to give us information, took my nephew and niece out one night, and helped us when we needed cabs to the airport. We very much enjoyed meeting all of the family.I highly recommend it as a wonderful apartment to stay in. Lynn

Overall, we were extremly happy with our stay. The only big thing I would would advise is to heat the pool. It was ice cold and largely unuseable because it was so cold. If we were hot from it being extremly hot outside we could use it for a few minutes to cool down but even then you could only stay in the pool for a few minutes. Once again, everything else was great. Thank you!!

The apartment we stayed in on Paseo de Gracia was amazing....excellent location, beautifully decorated and brand new apartment. The host was very gracious and accommodating. This is the second time that we use Amarante and we have been very satisfied with our choice both times. Will definitely use Amarante again and recommend to friends.

We were told that this apartment was appropriate for 3 families but on arrival found that 2 of the bedrooms had no walls or doors. This was a very uncomfortable situation as we could see/hear one another and there was no privacy. I had discussed during the booking that we were 3 families and it should have been made very clear that there were two rooms without doors or rooms. It simply did not work for a group of this kind. I was then told by Daniela that many groups had been here and yet the Manager of the apartment, Jordi, told me that they were going to change and put in doors which shows that they consider this to be an issue.

The property is spacious however the kitchen is not well equiped and the swimming pool is not a swimming pool - it is a wading pool. This should be explained as it was the only reason for picking this property and paying a premium for it but it is almost just knee deep - hardly a pool.

Villa Maricel in Sant Feliu de Guixols - a decent property in mostly convenient location that shows signs of being very heavily used. It is not as close to the beach as they portray, its a solid 20 minute walk away. It is convenient to a grocery store-market however, which was handy. I would not put this property in the luxury category. It does not have air conditioning, nor ceiling fans, so the rooms were extremely hot most nights. Also, there are not screens on the windows so we got bitten up by flies, mosquitoes and spiders all week. The property advertises a lift but it does not work so we had to carry our heavy luggage up three flights of stairs. The lawn around the pool had overgrown weeds all around the pool that we ended up trimming with scissors because they drove us crazy. There are only 12 pool chairs and 2 umbrellas for a property that sleeps 22-25 people. Also, there were no pool towels provided, nor wash clothes. We understand that Europeans dont use wash cloths, but many other people around the globe do. Also, in the main kitchen in the house the toaster did not work, two of the four burners on the stove did not work, and the grill in the main kitchen did not work. And, the property has no gate code pad that allows people to come and go at will. Trying to deal with two keys for 13 people doing different things day and night was incredibly challenging. And, as mentioned before - we will never work with StayBCN again - their service was amongst the worst we have encountered in the world. It should not be up to the clients paying for a luxury villa to try and chase down basic information about what is or is not included in the rental, when our payments are due and to whom, whether payment were received, and so on. These are very basic pieces of information that were extremely challenging for us to pull out of this supplier. So, you can imagine that the helpful information such as things to do in the area, how to get around, where to dine and so on, were not provided. Again, not luxury service. Not even good service. Natalia at Amarante Villas was very helpful and if not for her, I would have cancelled this reservation long ago.
