better than expected !!!
we arrived on 25\7\17 for a week as a family of 4 with our friends. We arrived at just after 9.00pm and receptionist advised us to leave our bags and gave us our wristbands so we could get something to eat before the restaurant closed at 9.30pm. After eating we were allocated our room which was brilliant, only problem was the kids fighting over the top bunk every night, sea and pool view. could have done with a few more lifts, easy walking down 8 flights of stairs but not so good going up!!. always managed to get a sunbed without having to get up at stupid o'clock in the morning. The food was good always something to eat, as I have to eat a gluten free diet, some of the food could have done with content advice above the item. only had to ask for gluten free bread. entertainment team was brilliant and did their best to get everyone involved. We stayed at the Pirate Village in Santa Ponsa Majorca last year, but both our kids and the family we went with agreed that they enjoyed the entertainment and the pool this year much better. All in all this was a brilliant holiday, thanks to the staff at the Santa Monica Hotel!!More

Good location, some disappointments
We arrived to the hotel late at night so missed dinner but as we had paid half board, they let us have lunch on another day to make up for this. At other hotels I have stayed at they often leave cold food in the room to eat on arrival which is much handier but it was still good that they offered the lunch. The room was very average, our view was of the road and bins/smoking area for staff. The bedding was a little worn and the bathroom door would not open from the inside (we had to either not close it or get someone outside to open it). Pool is small but there were always sun beds and even in August it didn't feel crowded. The staff were amazing, particularly the entertainment staff whom worked tirelessly to ensure everyone had a great time, day and night. The food was okay, there were queues on occasion but we never had to wait very long. I was not a fan of the cooked breakfast as they had hotdog style sausages, the bacon was over cooked and the eggs did not look very appetising, however there were plenty of pastries and fresh fruit instead. Lunch on the day we had it was very good, lots of potato salads and pastas. Dinner was hit and miss. There was a hair in one of the puddings on one night which put us right off! The location is good, it's a short walk to the beach and to the main town. There are shops opposite the hotel and lots of bars and restaurants. There is good nightlife. The train station is about a 20 minute walk from the hotel and there are regular trains to Barcelona, which take around an hour. The last train back from Barcelona is just before 11. More
Hi just stayed here for 11 nights with wife and 12 yr old son will start with my good points 1-central location 2-clean rooms daily 3 -entertainment work very hard good with kids 4 food is average always something to eat but after a week u will want to eat elsewhere and calella have some lovely restaurants 5 most reviews are the same and fairly acurate 6 free air con and wi fi very good NOW THE BAD 1 dinner doesn't start till 7.30 and it is a que from 7 onwards waiting to get in we ended up eating at 8.30 onwards so parents with young kids prepare for this 2 the hotel has 8 floors 2 lifts we were on 5 u can't get a lift during dinner time always full ended up walking each night dome might not find it as easy 3 staff are very good but sometimes they make u feel as if u should be asking and as u can only get 2 drinks per person ur up all the time barman ray good bloke 4 no waiter service and snacks at certain times we've stayed in sister hotel in salou calypso and is a far better hotel and have both facilities 5 small pool which is mostly about 10 ft so not easy to walk along or young kids baby pool is very small comparing to salou calypso 6 had outside events not enough chairs for everyone to sit! 7taxi from airport between 65 to 80 euros All in all most reviews are correct calella is a lovely resort but would be nice if it had a fee more British bars only one I found alcatraz not calella fault but being used to tenerife lanzarotte salou benidorm this is too quiet for us decent 3*** hotel and food is fair enough u won't starve we bought package in Jan 17 thru jet 2 and certainly paid more than others so would go back to wot we know but might be the right place for othersMore
We arrived on July 25th for a week. Our rooms were fine at first I thought the road was going to be a nightmare but I slept after the first night. The reception staff were very helpful. The Thomson rep was no help at all we saw her once and she wouldn't tell us where the station was saying it was too hard for us to get to barcelona. It wasn't you can go by train cost about 10 euros very easy to get around on the train we went to the market on Sunday and caught a bus to marine land fantastic place there is a free bus and the hotel sell the tickets. On Saturday the hotel had their 50th anniversary it was a fab day the food was great amazing displays and entertainment everyone did a great job On our departure we had no information about actually leaving didn't realise there was somewhere downstairs to get ready and we paid 30 euros which we didn't need to do There were 10 of us we all enjoyed calella and would come back great holiday More
Friendly, fun hotel
We booked up last year for 2 weeks and kept reading reviews until the day we went. On arrival at 23.10, we checked in quickly and efficiently. Were told we could get a sandwich before 23.30, so quickly took cases to rooms. Had a quick drink and a sandwich and turned in. The rooms are basic but very clean. And cleaned everyday. Fresh bedding and towels also. Only 1 socket in the room so had to use the bathroom socket for phone charging. The pool is amazing, it isn't very big, but the depth makes up for that! It is always clean and tidy. Sun beds were easy to find. The dining room can be an experience if you let it!! Go for evening meal after 8.30 to avoid the queues. Any earlier and it's a bun fight! The staff in here work so hard and the manager on the desk who seats you is lovely! If you take the time to chat with him, he is very funny! The food is plentiful. And a variety of choice. Not to everyone's taste everyday, but you won't go hungry. They cater for many nationalities, which must be difficult!! But always fresh and appealing!! The poolside bar has limited snacks for the all inclusive, but that's my opinion. Other guests were happy with this. You get served fast, we never queued for long even at busy times. The team here chatter away to you and always serve with a smile! And now for the animation team..... WOW!!! From the first day when they came dancing round the pool, they were all amazing!! Games and activities poolside during the day, give them a go and join in!! Then the evening entertainment, which is fantastic! They all work so hard!!! David, Meeca, Esmee, Roza, Ali, Miguel sorry can't remember the others names! But they really did make our holiday!! Thank you guys!!! All in all a lovely clean hotel, fantastic entertainment and worth a visit!!! More
