Does anyone have any experience with Airport Transfers Direct in Barcelona?
We are a group of 7, with 13 pieces of luggage and do not want to split up into taxis when we go from BCN to our hotel. Any recommendations for a reasonable, reliable transfer company with vans would be welcome. We will also use them from the hotel to the port a couple of days later so an airport only company would not work for us. Thanks.

No, I don't know this company. Why not choose a hotel that provides complimentary shuttle service from the airport. Then, you'll only have to pay to get to the ship.

Never heard of this company either.

However, if you are interested in booking a van to take your group to your hotel, I always recommend Autos Vilar. We have used them many times in Barcelona, both to the hotel and to or from the pier.

Thanks for your help. Unfortunately, hotels in Barcelona don't offer shuttles. I decided to book with Autos Vilar, even though bids from others were less. I decided that doing business with a local company with a good reputation was much better than using a company from elsewhere who contracts the business out.

Some do, such as the Renaissance, which has a shuttle to/from the airport and to/from downtown.

However, unlike most North American airports, there is excellent rail (and bus) service into the downtown core.
Train: Sants Station
Train: Franca Station
Bus: Placa Catalunya

For those who plan to travel, do not use Shuttle Direct shared service if you want service directly to your hotel. BAD SERVICE!!!!
