We returned last week after a 10 night stay, half board at the Santa Monica. This very well run hotel is situated in a quiet and very convenient area of Calella. The beach is about a 5 minute walk and about the same to the main shops and bars, no hills to encounter. There are supermarkets, restaurants and bars in... More

For the price that this hotel costs, it seems as though other reviewers are wanting a 5 star resort! If you want a 5 star resort - pay 5 star prices. I stayed at this hotel for a week with my partner and we enjoyed every second. Obviously there are a few flaws but overall it was a fantastic week.... More

The staff at the hotel are very helpful, and the entertainments team work really hard to put on performances most nights. The bar, reception and restaurant are very clean. The meals are lovely, but when you are all inclusive they do get a little repetitive. The pool is lovely and clean as is the pool area, I would say there... More
