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

We stayed here for 4 nights in May 2013 with out two children aged 6 and 3. We found this to be a fantastic hotel. Our family room had been recently refurbished and was enormous and spotlessly clean with a huge balcony. The hotel is very peaceful and quiet with many nationalities of guest. The pool area is lovely and... More

Although we'd been coming to Calella for nearly 30 years we'd never actually eaten at the Alga for some reason. Some friends who had likewise never been there, fixed that and we all looked forward to a great experience. The night we went, it was a little cold for eating outside which may have spoiled it a little because the... More

We recently spent 4 days (3 nights) at Hotel alga with our 16 and 11 years old sons and would rate our stay the best family hotel stay we have ever experienced. The entire staff is extremely friendly (especially Marta and Virginia at the front desk), any extra wishes that go beyond menu (in the case of food) or any... More

My husband, son and I stayed here for 7 nights in July. I can't say enough about this fabulous hotel. The hotel was beautiful and the pool area was clean and relaxing. Our room was spacious with a large balcony that looked out over the sea. The entire hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. In fact, 2 days into the... More

Well-run family hotel. Excellent restaurant, featuring Catalan dishes. Staff accommodated vegetarian diet. Hillside location away from busy beaches, but within easy walking distance. Fabulous 25 meter pool, allowing for lap swimming. Extensive breakfast buffet.
