WWF aims to build a future where human needs are met in harmony with nature.

It is focused around 6 ambitious goals with people at the center:
WWF's work has evolved from saving species and landscapes to addressing the larger global threats and forces that impact them. Recognizing that the problems facing our planet are increasingly more complex and urgent. The new strategy puts people at the center and organizes our work around six key areas: forests, marine, freshwater, wildlife, food and climate. By linking these six areas in an integrated approach, WWF can direct all resources to protecting vulnerable places, species and communities worldwide.

People are at the center because together we can change the trajectory of the threats to nature, and help ensure nature's ability to provide - for the sake of every living thing, including ourselves. To accomplish goals, WWF works to educate and influence people into making sustainable choices and decisions, including those who work in business and make decisions around the use of natural resources, and those who work in government and set policy that impacts nature.

The pool area and gardens are beautiful. The A/C in the rooms was not working all that great. There is no airport shuttle and the hotel is not in a convenient location if you like to walk and explore. The metro is about a 10 minute walk away. We loved the Terrace restaurant there and it was full since there is not anywhere nearby to eat out.

Excellent stay in every way. Clean nice rooms. Very friendly staff. Nice pool areas, one for adults only. Beautiful bar.

This place was amazing! Very modern and clean. I enjoyed my stay here. But it is more of a place where you go to get away from the city. We came from out of country, and overseas to view Barcelona and this was quite far from the city. Except! We figured out a way. Twenty minutes away there is a bus stop for the Barcelona tour bus. We got two day passes and used the bus to get around everywhere for the day. So I rather enjoyed it here after all. It is not close to any food places really. We walked fifteen minutes to get food and the options were rather sparse. So like I said, it is a nice hotel to book if you want to get away from it all.

Fairmont Rey Juan Carlos I, three words... life changing breakfast. It had an endless variety of wonderful breakfast foods, beautiful dinning room, excellent employees, and gave my 14 year old cousin a reason to get up in the morning. As we arrived at the hotel we were greated by two cheerful employees that took our bags. They were very welcoming and friendly. The lobby was beautiful as was our large and spacious room. We never had a problem trying to get directions anywhere or anything because they were always willing to help us. Although, it is on the outskirts of the city we never had a problem getting anywhere because the metro system was very efficient and close. Fairmont Rey Juan Carlos I, the only thing kepping you from perfection is your lack of English speaking channels, your unheated pool, and your chilly showers. Overall, this hotel was truly luxurious, spectacular, and astounding. We can’t wait to stay here next time we visit Barcelona! :)

Beautiful hotel, with excellent service. Buffet breakfast was delicious. The pools and gardens are beautiful. The room we stayed in was very spacious and spotless. The lobby area is quite big and very nice.

About 20 min from the airport. They have hot breakfast that starts at 630. Very nice accommodations. Shower has great water pressure. The toiletries all smell like roses. Had the sea bass at the restaurant. It was very good. Good wine selection. They have a gym and sauna. The rooms come with a free bottle of water. Located in downtown. Taxis all know the name. Taxi Should cost $30 euros give or take $5 depending on traffic from airport bcn. Hotel management and staff speak English decently well. Might come off as rude but it's the language barrier. Very nice friendly staff otherwise.

Apart from the stunning atrium and lobby area, the hotel has really amazing service and the rooms are beautiful. The view isn't fantastic especially from so high up but it's not bad. The location isn't ideal if you want to visit the city but it us super close to the nearby convention centre

The place is of fantastic decor of lights, and the local DJ alexis has a marvellous taste in music! He can always make your spirit high The rooms are spacious and very well designed. The higher floors are more comfortable. The reception was friendly and helpful. The food , well, focus on the fish more. The beef is not Spain’s forte. The design will remain a strong memory, with the lighting that is mesmerising. Pay attention at the reception’s piano-key mirrors that are All redesigned. It is very interesting and second life. It has some shops that are attached to the hotel There is a pool (small) and a spa and a gym. However you have to exit the hotel door and re-enter from the other side (not too practical if the weather is not too friendly outside) The polo club is also nearby but you need appointments The tennis is also available. In all: a “all inclusive hotel” with a name that shines.

Great hotel, nice staff and chic atmosphere. Great service although the building is a bit old. Don't be cheap here but a great place to enjoy a nice holidays in Barcelona. A bit far from the night life and the city center tough. I would repeat

Good hotel with great interior design and lobby! Great view from the window of rooms! Breakfast is okay! Accessibility to subway station and important tourist places are limited!

Nice hotel, great cocktails! Nice staff. Downsides: because of the open design, it can be quite noisy, unless you have an extra door in your room to close off the noise coming from the lobby. Secondly: it's relatively far away from the city centre.

The best hotel in Barcelona. Service excellent. Rooms are modern. They should remove the carpet in the rooms.

The hotel is simply glorious - the decor is sumptuous, the service is impeccable and the ambiance is comforting. The only downside of the hotel is its location. It’s really too bad it’s not more centrally located.

Good food and an excellent service, a bit overpriced if you only look at the food, but if you take into account the place as well then you can understand it. They are very careful and everything is done taking into account small details, like taking your jackets away and helping you to put them on, etc. For my taste the sofas they have look great but become uncomfortable for having dinner after half an hour, so I would recommend to sit on one of the high tables and stools they have.

Loved the hotel, the staff, their food and service! First hotel where I found cruelty free bath products with rose essence! Only its location is a minus, as it takes some time to travel to the city center, about 20 minutes by taxi.

The meeting room was comfortable enough to house the event, and even being a lot of people there, there was so much space. Catering was OK, and the service was very good.

After checking in our air conditioning didn't work at all (our rooms never went below 25°C) so we were moved to different rooms which had windows that opened to help cool things down - surprised (and disappointed) to stay in a five star hotel that doesn't have functioning AC. One of the new rooms also had a foul odour coming from the shower drain, which wasn't resolved despite repeated cleanings. However the staff was quite friendly, attentive and helpful and seemed to be genuinely concerned about our issues. The hotel is also close to the metro, so visiting the city center is easy. Overall it's a bit of a gamble, without the maintenance issues this hotel would be a great choice for visiting Barcelona.

Nice view, great location, right next to a main Ave, tram and subway stations. Room was big and well lit. A/C is kind of weak, but I guess that's more energy efficient. Couldn't figure out a way to turn on just my bedside lamp. It was either really bright or really dark. Room service is great, cleaning staff does a great job. Bathroom was well equipped. Overall, a nice stay. P.S. A package of chocolate covered almonds was in my room when I arrived, great touch!

The building looks amazing and the lobby and staff are excellent. The location is great if you want to go watch Barca FC or get to the metro. The health club and pools are truly resort worthy. Where things broke down for us was the lack of vegetarian options in any of their restaurants and the fact that there were stains and holes in the carpet / furniture in the two rooms that I booked. I get that they are renovating and we were in their older rooms. But, if you're charging for a 5 star, I do expect carpeting that's not worn to the point of having holes and a sofa without big stains.

Very nice, typical Fairmont excellence. Friendly staff. Location is a bit far from downtown areas so you will be taking cabs. Nice pools. Walking distance to Camp Nou

Had a very memorable stay. Every thing went very well from check in to check out. The staff were very professional, friendly and helpful. Every one does his (her ) job with a big smile. The hotel is located in a quiet area away from the city centre hussle. It has a very beautiful garden, which is not marketed at the website. It is very convenient if you are attending a meeting at the conference centre, which is a 2 minutes walk. You can easily reach city centre and most of the landmarks by metro or bus. Camp Nou is on a walking distance. I would not hesitate to stay there again if I go back to Barcelona.

Staying here for a conference. Great for the airport as only 15mins but 20€ in a taxi to anywhere more lively. Hotel is in the process of being done up if you get a room that's been upgraded great otherwise they are tired. Friendly staff and good service.bit pricey in the bar for food and drinks

It's an old hotel, but how they kept it at a 5-star level all these years amazes me. You can tell by the lack of sockets and the noticeable locks on the doors. The rooms, the toilets, the breakfast buffet, the grand lobby, there was a conference there while I was staying. Everything was just splendid. Couldn't find much to complain about. Maybe the price? but of course, you get what you paid for, it's just super deluxe. And even living on a lower floor, I could still feel special and majestic. A must stay~! (If you have the spare change)
