Hours Mon-Sun 10-sunset May-Oct (until 23 June-mid Sep)

A day by the pool, lounging on a sunbed, surrounded by hot, beautiful people, food and drinks at your whim and fancy, soundtrack provided by a DJ. Sounds ideal, right? And it’s the experience that Purobeach promises at their clubs around the world and here in Barcelona on the pool deck of the Hilton Diagonal Mar hotel.

The reality, of course, is somewhat different. Entry is free but the privilege of planting your behind on a sunbed (and actual use of the pool) requires a minimum spend of around 100 euros per head, the exact amount determined by the proximity to the water. It’s wallet size as opposed to waist size that rules here, with everything that entails – and that often includes children.

For a day by the pool, Purobeach Barcelona can be perfectly nice if money is no object. Service is generally attentive and the pool deck is lovely. Just don’t expect Ibiza-style hedonistic glam. Note that there’s no minimum spend if you stick to the bar and restaurant area only, so you might want to skip the lounger and keep it to a sunset drink.
