I booked this via booking.com with the idea of being away from Barcelona but still within a reasonable driving distance from the MotoGP at the Circuit de Catelunya. I did not expect much due to the price but was pleasantly surprised by the facilities, cleanliness and professional staff. Gutted that only found out after day 2 that the huge variety... More

Arrived at this hotel and waited to check in. First room was awful, light, noisy with uncomfortable pillows and a lumpy bed. We asked to move rooms and were put in a twin room on the third floor which was marginally better. Within the hour we realised we had left something in the old room. This was never recovered and...

We've just arrived home after staying in that wonderful hotel for almost 2 weeks. To be honest, we hadn't even expected to have something that great before coming there. Actually the staff is polite and educated, the food is delicious and nourishing :) there're plenty of facilities, animation is not bad... the service is perfect in general. you can simply... More

Absolutely loved this hotel. Rooms were small but clean and perfectly adequate. The staff were attentive and very helpful. The food is fantastic- best I've ever had at a buffet. Could've done with a few more veggie options but even though I'm picky there was something to choose at every meal. Alcohol is at a good price too. Nice pool... More

When we booked our holiday in July this year, we couldn’t find very many English reviews for this hotel ... Now - having returned from our 10-day visit last week - we know why. There didn’t seem to be many Brits there during our stay - the majority were Spanish, French and Russian (with far fewer Germans than we expected).... More

The hotel is located just behind the main street that crosses the centre of Calella, towards the mountains (making it a quite place to stay than directly in the vibrant centre, where you'll have a lot of noise of youngsters partying at night). Although the hotel is rated three-stars, our first impression was that of a two-star hotel: in general,... More

Despite it is three stars hotel, it is much better than four stars neighbour ones, indeed. Because it is new, clean, small and its restaurant is perfect. It is not so far from a sea - it wil take 5 min to reach a beach. Friendly personell, especially Eva at the reseption. Highly recommended.

Nice and clean hotel, spacious rooms, everything very clean, comfortable beds, all hotel staff very friendly. I would say the meals were good (maybe too good, not recommended to the people wanting loose weight...lol), not a huge variety, but all fresh and well cooked. Problems with free parking in Calella, it is a better option for renting the parking place... More
