Loved the animationteam!
We booked a room for 5 nights and we arrived at night. The staff was very kind and our room was good enough for our stay. The only thing we didn't really liked was breakfast. The animationteam was great! Fun activities and they seemed to enjoy their job. So thanks Jonna, Micha, Exmee, Roza, Suzan, Daan, Triano, David and Ali for your good work, nice smiles and services! We definately comming back for you guys! Keep up the good work.More
Vegetarians or those who don't want chips every night stay away!
We are currently at this hotel and my review is based on the food! Luckily we only booked half board not all inclusive. We are two adults and a 4 year old. Firstly for the children there is only fried food, chips, chicken nuggets, fish fingers, burgers,one adult is vegetarian and there is nothing unless you count lettuce, grated carrot, onions, cucumber and tomato as all the rice, couscous or pasta salad has either fish or meat in it. Now they do do a soya dish, disgusting, I never saw a single person eat it! We spoke to the rep, useless, and the Director of hotel said go to kitchen ask them to make you something! We did this for four nights, gave her a bowl of pasta with tinned tomato on top! If you like this every night of your holiday you will be in heaven. The fruit, strawberries cherries, etc are all of a cheap quality, basically it is crap! If you have read any of my previous reviews you will see I don't do bad reviews but honestly the food is dire! They told me I am the only one to complain, maybe to them but lots of people we spoke to around the pool said the food was poor! I will say the breakfast is not too bad but don't do half board or AI, eat out it will be tastier and cheaper.More

Santa Monica Hotel
Transfer from Barcelona took approximately 1 hour. The outside of the hotel is a bit tired and dated looking. The pool is quite small and gets very deep quickly. The loungers are plentiful with no rush to get them. They are just white plastic so a bit uncomfortable. Parasols are like ones you would buy to take to the beach and there aren't many of them. There is a pool bar which serves drinks, hot dogs, burgers, chips and toasties if you fancy lunch by the pool. Drink measures are good with good choice. The food in the hotel is not up to much however you will find something to eat. You are given a table number each time you use the restaurant but the tables are so close together that it feels like an invasion of personal space and we are all at a banquet! We were on the first floor facing the pool and these rooms are the only ones with a large balcony with 2 Sun Loungers. The view at the back of the hotel looks onto a main road. Entertainment pretty dire so just the usual at most places. I would not rebook this hotel as there are better ones. The rooms are also basic and need some TLC. Calella has lots of shops and bars etc within easy walking distance. The narrow streets and cafe bars are great for people watching. The beach is beside the railway line so you go under a tunnel to get to it. The sand is quite gravelly. You can go by train to Barcelona in 1 hour and it's cheap. Calella is your typical mainland Spain resort with built up areas etc. I am enjoying my holiday but would not return to the hotel or the area. More
"POT LUCK HOLIDAY" TURNED OUT GREAT
Never been to this part of Spain before and was pleasantly surprised by Calella Town very pretty with little narrow streets with small shops and squares here and there.. There is a little red train that stops outside the hotel every morning for the market for 2 euros single and 21/2 euros return or walk back down the main street to the hotel. The beech is a very short walk from the hotel with golden sand where loungers and umbrellas can be hired for 6 euros each for the full day We went all inclusive which we like. Food a bit repetitive but keep in mind this is a three star.The hotel is very clean the beds very comfortable the pool area good with a bar and plenty of beds with parasols and the weather was great. Evening entertainment every night but mainly for the children. Staff very helpful at reception and speak excellent English. "BUT" just one snag it took 2.hrs 35 mins from Girona Airport transfer as we were the last drop off and 1hr.35 min back far far too long in transfers. All in all it turned out to be a very pleasant holiday and we all enjoyed it.More
Noisy neighbours from hell
This was our third time back to Santa Monica as our son loves the freedom of activities with the very friendly entertainment staff. He thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel was clean and in regards to everyday issues, we did enjoy our holiday. The food was enjoyable with the chef covering various dishes. All staff were fantastic. Unfortunately for us after 5 nights in we were stuck with horrendous, disrespectful, ill mannered and downright appalling selfish next door neighbours on one side of our 2nd floor room. Both over a certain age, they should of known better noisily returning back to their room at exactly 3am in the morning every morning, to loud vulgar conversations whilst watching a loud tv and smoking on the balcony blowing smoke that drifted in through our doors. The worst part was the guys cough that was disgusting with no attempt to be concealed. She was vulgar, swearing at neighbours who told her to be quiet. They were utterly selfish and disrespectful of anyone elses privacy or holiday requirements in regards to children. If management require a room number i will give this out privately in the hope that this despicable couple do not ruin anyone elses family holiday in the future. Luckily my son did wake up for short periods every night but went back to sleep soon after. Maybe it is possible to locate families away from couples without children, in the hope of a more family friendly holiday hotel in the future. At the moment I know it is pot luck on holiday in hotels, but hopefully management will take this seriously enough to consider peoples holiday requirements in the future. With this at the moment we will not be returning for a fourth year unless we can be assured night staff are in place to stop this happening and needs are met. More
