We stayed for three nights costing £83, inc. of breakfast. Our room was clean...although a bit small and a little dated but overlooked the pool. Staff very friendly and helpful..air con sorted straight away when we mentioned that it was not working. Breakfast was buffet style and there was something there for everyone's taste. The pool could get a bit... More

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.
