An old beach hotel from the beginning of mass tourism in the 1960s. Has a retro charm and does what it's supposed to. We came late in the season and were given better rooms than we had booked. The views are lovely and the staff delightful. The only downside is the coffee at breakfast, not good.

Pretty average really. Breakfast was fairly forgettable. Room was ok with nice view. A seaview room is a must unless you want to overlook the car park. Decor a bit dated. Staff pleasent. A good 3 star but no way a four star. Amazed its won awards. The place of calella de palafrugell is breathtakingly beautiful.

Callella is great place and this hotel is quiet but great for children at the same time. It has a nice garden and swimming pool. The design is a bit basic though. The dinner and lunch are really good, especially for being half-board, but the menu is a bit too short for having lunch or dinner there every day if... More

This hotel is a real find, nestled in beautiful grounds with a huge pool and range of outdoor activities . The food is a true gourmet experience, incredible choice and value when half board. The staff are all highly professional and being a small hotel you really feel a personal touch. The cocktails are reasonably priced and divine. Our children... More

We went for a week in July after a couple of days sightseeing in Barcelona. The weather was really hot and we really welcomed the coastal location and the comfort of the hotel. We had two standard rooms on the 1st floor which were of good standard, but with a view out to the rear of the hotel which wasn't... More

Nice, good service but some rooms obsolete although you pay the same than the one refurbished. However this is to be changed in short term. So I would recommend this hotel, and actually next time we will come back with our daughter because we liked the familiar environment

Have been to Calella many times but always stayed self catering across the main road, so we never really noticed this quite impressive hotel with its lovely large swimming pool and grounds. The good : lovely staff, very clean, good sized rooms, very convenient for restaurants and beaches, peaceful for its location, massive cocktails for around £5. The possible improvements... More

My husband and I had 10 wonderful days in this lovely friendly hotel. It is a 2 min walk to the beach, bars and restaurants but sits in a secluded shady garden with a large pool. The staff were very helpful in an unobtrusive way. The only criticisms I had was no mirror in the bedroom(only in the bathroom) and... More

The Alga is a clean and modern hotel with all the necessary facilities ; a well stocked breakfast buffet, a nice pool area with a poolside bar and a lovely but small green garden. The steep hill down to the beach may prove to be an obstacle to some - at least coming back up (but one cannot blame the... More
