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

We stayed at the Hotel Alga for 11 nights during July 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were small (ours overlooked the car park) but very comfortable and extremely clean. The air conditioning worked well and wifi was available in the rooms, as well as the reception area. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and can't... More

This hotel was a great place to start my trip to Spain! The rooms were nice and the beds were comfortable. We had a/c and wifi in the room. Having a balcony looking out to the Mediterranean was great! The grounds of this hotel were beautiful and well kept. There were many spots to sit and relax, and the pool... More

Calella de Palafrugell is a beautiful old fishing village, full of character. We stayed for 2 nights in a family room at Hotel Alga and were delighted. The hotel is close to the centre of the town, with parking, a lovely garden area and outdoor pool. The room had 4 beds (2 were a sofa bed), plenty of space and... More

This area was recommended by my Spanish son in law. The hotel was pretty ordinary though. Definitely missing the wow factor although nothing wrong with it. The only place that my travel agents could offer in this area. Lots of other places online if I wanted to go it alone. The room was really tiny and no balcony as requested,... More
