My partner, myself and his two children had booked through ice lolly.com and I was told by the operator that this hotel was a family orientated hotel. They could not have been further from the truth. The German jam 18-22 year olds use this hotel and no family's. We were also told when we arrived that in four months only... More

We stayed here (7 women, between 24-55) for 3 nights. Germany must've been quiet as all the young Germans were in our hotel. Albeit, not as loud as i thought they would be. The food was ok for the price. The cleanliness was brilliant and location good! I probably wouldn't stay here again. But for an all inclusive hotel the... More

The hotel is fullfilled (up to 90%) with german teenagers and youngsters, who are drinking, smoking and making love. However if you are sleeping hardly at nights the teenagers will not bother you :-)The rooms and balcony are not cleaned before arrival of the guests, the panoramic view was to a parking place and the forlorn neighbouring hotel. But during... More

I just came back from an awesome holiday in Calella and this is the hotel where we stayed. The hotel was not so bad i think but you must not expect too much. This hotel is perfect for youngsters who are looking for a cheap hotel where they can sleep and eat but that's all. The food isn't wonderful but... More

Nice rooms, good food and friendly staff. I would recomend it for families and young couples or group of friends. Located a few minutes walk from the beach, and there are a lot of restaurants and clubs around.

The rooms are of a very basic 2 star. They are crying out for a refurb. Also the food was very hit and miss,of a very poor grade. Pool was very very small for the size of the hotel. Hotel was very close to the town,which was great. Takes around 20 mins to get to / from the train stn.... More

Upon arrival we noticed no ramp for suitcases just two high flights of steps, and when asked at reception if they had such facilities especially for the elderly, receptionist point blankley said 'no'. Hotel full of 18-24 year old Germans, nothing but... More
