This hotel is probably the best hotel in Calella! The staff speaks some languages and is very helpful, smiling and friendly. The food is good, the maitre Leli, in the dining room is taking care of everything and everybody at the same time with a smile. The hotel es extremely clean and beautifully decorated. The rooms are lovely. I warmly... More

We stayed in Kaktus Playa at the very end of the tourist season. Our room was a standard room on the top floor, and it had pool and sea views (well, if you stood on your tippy toes..). The room did not quite match the quite recently (?) updated lobby, but was clean and had a comfortable bed. Food was... More

This hotel is a mix of contrasts. On the positive side, the location is one block from the beach, and close to shops and restaurants. The lobby area is nice and includes a large bar/lounge, pool table, and seating areas. Periodic nightly entertainment is held in the lounge area. The reception staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast and dinner... More

The reception looks better than the rooms. The room we stayed (4th floor) was small, however clean and comfortable enough. It is better to stay at the upper floors in order to enjoy the view and not to be disturbed by the noise of the street. The access to the Spa costs 10 euro / day, so better get an... More

Located roughly 10 minutes away from the railway station which connects you with such cities as Barcelona and Girona, and simultaneously being within 5 minutes reach from the beach, this hotel certainly is more than one would expect from 3* hotel. Its geographical location within Calella was also great, as the main restaurants' and shopping street was only few minutes... More

My room was very drab - and basic - with thin walls ( hear the words from the TV next door) - but over the 3 nights I realised it was a much better deal than others locally. The reception staff were helpful and the dining room has a very good buffet.
