As a regular visitor to Calella, I have become very used to some very average hotels being described as 3 star. Well the Santa Monica is the exception to the rule. Although a fairly old hotel it has been well maintained. The cleanliness is immaculate and the service provided by the staff was first class. The food was of a... More

The staff were fantastic the fellow guests were arrogant. If you dont mind pushy rude Russians and pork every night for evening dinner, then youve cracked it. This hotel provides all you want on holiday. If youve paid half board or all inclusive its there. Just remember you get what you pay for. The rooms themselves are very basic. No... More
