Nice friendly hotel

Great location, near to the centre of Calella, shops, bars etc, but not to near that your hear any noise. 10 minutes to a lovely beach .Hotel was nice & clean, rooms were cleaned & towels changed daily if required. Excellent Variety at all meal times, we all found something to eat at all times and the poolside snack bar was very good. Will return.More

Great holiday, everything you need

Stayed for 2 weeks All-Inclusive and had a great time. Very friendly staff, great entertainments/activities team, made everything fun. Food good most of the time, always the snack bar as well. Drinks served in smaller cups if all inclusive rather than if a paying guest which seemed a little bit mean, but you could refill as many times as you like so I don;t know why they make a difference between the two. Entertainment every evening, always a good show. Lots to keep the kids entertained as well as the adults. Thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay and would definitely go back.More

Lovely relaxing holiday

The hotel staff were very pleasant, food ok, hotels clean, nice location and had all we needed for a relaxed holiday. Many different holiday makers from all over Europe. Nice for kids, plenty of activities and two streets away from the beach. Calella is a lovely smaller holiday destination with a lively night life for all agesMore


Friendly hotel with all you need. Great location too

Myself, my husband and 2 year old daughter stayed here for 8 nights at the end of September. We were in room 621 with a view over the pool, sea and we could see the lighthouse. Room was clean and the lady who came to clean the room daily was very friendly. The bed was made everyday and the sheets were changed 3 times in the 8 night stay which is plenty. Balcony had room for table, 3 chairs and still more standing room. It's not the biggest room ever but we did have an extra bed in it for our little one. More plug sockets would be a good idea but you can't have everything! Bathroom was fine, shower good and again, all kept clean. Meals- we stayed all inclusive and with a little one we were pleased we did. Plenty of choice and quality was fine. If you want 5 star food pay 5 star prices. One complaint that seems to come up often is the seat allocation. Yes, a man told us what table to sit at. It's a dining room that seats 250 people and if people were left to get their own tables there would have been wasted space and lots of people milling about causing delays and getting in the way. The most we waited for a table was 10 minutes at the start of the dinner time. Without seat allocation this would have easily trebled. The staff were all polite to us and brilliant with our little one. Dinner is a little late but that's the way of it in Spain. We, 2yr old included, took to siestas in the afternoon so eating late wasn't an issue. Complaints about food and staff here are in our opinion way too harsh. Pool was fine. Cold! But my 2 yr old didn't care and I didn't mind once in! Still, it was all clean and there were plenty of sunbeds and parasols available. I personally really like the rule of no large inflatables. It's not a very large pool and Inflatables would make the pool dangerous. Calella isn't a large town so it doesn't really have sprawling resorts with many large pools. Go elsewhere (ie another town) if that's what you are after. Staff- reception were friendly, along with all the other staff we met. I don't understand the poor reviews about the attitude of staff. We didn't experience this. They were helpful when our little one was unwell. They helped out when we were trying to sort out an excursion to Barcelona. It's a little bit frustrating that you have to pay for a fridge hire and wifi but it's not a huge cost and if it keeps the cost of staying here lower then i shouldn't really complain! Entertainment- I can't comment on the adult entertainment. We have a 2 yr old so we left after the kids disco. But special praise and thanks go to the entertainment staff for their AMAZING interaction with our little one. She, and other children there loved the kids disco and the mini games they played. Our little one was by far the youngest child there but was never ever left out. In fact They spent extra time and care to ensure she was involved. They were patient as well as funny, enthusiastic, and talented. They got us reluctant parents involved too lol. Our toddler lit up when she saw the entertainment staff and they were never too busy to spend time with her. They made the holiday for us. THANK YOU. If you are wanting 5 star, pay more. Yes, parts of the hotel need a bit of an update but again, you get what you pay for. In this case we feel we got more than we paid for. Overall, friendly hotel that was brilliant value for money. Entertainment staff were BRILLIANT with our little one and THAT was more important than anything.More


Highs and lows

Arrived back about 2 hours ago, beds were comfy, food okay at breakfast, evening meal was poor, also did not like being told were to sit, felt like being in a quite capable of choosing a seat. Trying to relax around pool was a no no as brass bands kept taking over, although they were ok got bit fed up being asked to move, so they could take over one corner for themselves. Glad I wasn't all inclusive. Bar man was excellent from Newcastle, always had a smile. Maybe this hotel should look at others in area for service with a smile, only one pub locally Alcatraz friendly but quite smokey in area outside with taupalin roof every time door open you could smell smokeMore
