Checking in! Barcelona [Honeymoon]

Welcome to Barcelona!

As soon as we landed, we quickly grabbed our bags the Barcelona Airport knows how to work quick.. exchanged some money, and grabbed a taxi!
Oh! And of course our coats! It was in the 30's outside. It was nice to wear our nice coats, while stepping out in Barcelona!

Then it was straight to our hotel!

The hotel we were staying in was called Gran Hotel La Florida

The hotel was a 20 minute drive from the city, and it was so beautiful! It was situated on top of a mountain, with a breathtaking view of the city! It was a very secluded, private resort! Perfect for newlyweds :)

The hotel had it all! Private rooms, beautiful views, spa, gracious staff, and yummy food!

We were treated like stars! Early check in! Which was great when you are coming from a 9 hour or so flight. Plus complimentary water and delicious fruit! Oh, and of course some wine!

It was a perfect beginning to what was our honeymoon..

Our room like I said was great! I had a fear that it was going to be small, and uncomfortable. Boy was I wrong! The room was equipped with a flat screen, yummy bed, modern yet rustic decor, and a great view!

This was the entrance to our room..

Our TV and the furnishing in the room! I love those chairs..Oh and our baggage!

The door to our private patio!

Standing outside on the patio! Love this view!

The hotel had to two different restaurants. Both were very nice! But after our long nap well deserved we put on our swimsuits and headed to the hot tub! I'll be doing a post on their beautiful pool and spa.
After that relaxing trip to the hot tub, we were starving! So we went down and had a delicious dinner! We were the only ones dinning that night. It was quiet, and every table had candles lit! It was very romantic.
It was nice to just sit there, eat a great meal, and have a glass of wine.

And of course! Our cafecito!
Every night we made sure to have it..

After our cafecito, it was time for bed :)
We had a full day ahead of us to explore Barcelona!!
