We've just come back from a great weeks stay at the Hotel Alga. Beautifully cared for, this is a lovely hotel in a picturesque resort. Our room was on the road rather than the garden side of the hotel and although the road was fairly busy, it was never intrusive. The room was well equipped and spacious. The staff were... More

Great friendly service; beautiful garden (complete with turtles), paddle court, ping ping table, billiards table, different spaces to read, relax, chat, free parking, etc. Had been here a few times about 15 years ago and they have really improved things. Highly recommended.

Hotel Alga is a large hotel but feels like a family-run operation. We had a sea-side room with an awesome view of the town, nearby hills and the sea. The giant breakfast buffet includes all types of egg dishes, meats, cheeses, fruit, pastries, wine, juice and coffee drinks. The pool is large with plenty of options for sitting in the... More

We recently stayed at the hotel Alga for a twelve day period on a bed & breakfast basis. For the first week , we had a room overlooking the front of the hotel / car park but we knew this when we booked and it was due to the hotel being full when we first arrived. The reception team at... More

We stayed here for a sneaky week before the kids went back to school on the recommendation of a friend. The hotel managed to squeeze us into one room which was fine, the beds were all comfy and although the room faced the back of the hotel there was no street noise at night at all. We decided to eat...

Lovely friendly hotel in beautiful Calella Palafrugel. Outstanding sea views in a breathtakingly lovely part of the Costa Brava. Room very comfortable though as is often the case a distinct lack of English TV apart from news channels. Food excellent in very attractive dining room. Romantic atmosphere for dinner - breakfast could be taken on the terrace. Good sized pool.... More

We were in a room which needed to improve so much. The room was very expensive and we can only understand because it had sea views. Honestly if you are plannig to go I recommend that you save your money for rooms without sea views. The hotel is a good place to go with children because it have all kinds... More
