Default Opening bank account before arriving in Spain?

Hello all. We are new to this forum.
We plan with my girlfriend to come visit Spain for few months and if we like it (we think we will) we will probably plan to stay and live there.

Is it a good idea to try to open a bank account before arriving in Spain so we can send some money to it and be able to take money out of it when in Spain? How would you proceed with opening such account from abroad? We know very little Spanish for a start, definitely not enough to discuss finances and banking.

So far from reading on bank websites, ING Direct Spain is out favorite. But if another bank is offering easier opening of bank acc from abroad, that will be acceptable as short term solution.

Any advice and recommendation is appreciated. Thanks in advance for any help.

Best regards
