We have returned to La Siesta many times. It's in the perfect location for exploring the idyllic area. The walks - coastal or inland are magnificent. The restaurants in Calella and Llafranc are a very good standard. The typically Spanish town of Palafrugell town is 1/2 hour walk or short bus ride away.
We travelled by coach with Siesta Holidays - Obviously 24 hours is a long time to travel, but we had a good relaxing journey. Excellent service from the hostess and drivers, and very comfortable seats with lots of leg room. Loads of films/tv programmes/music & games on your own personal tv with headphones. Siesta have their own area of lodges in a nice part of the site. Ann and Steve, the onsite reps have been there for many years. They are very helpful, very nice and have a great sense of humour.
There are 2 nice clean pools on the site - unfortunately for the last few years, the smaller one is only opened in July and August. Also the apartment block which overlooks the smaller pool has stood derelict for a number of years, and the bar in this area has closed down. This is a great pity because this used to be our favourite area of La Siesta. - nice and peaceful. This is the only negative point of my review. The fact is - we continue to come here because it's still a great place to stay.
If you want to hire a car, the helpful reception staff will arrange to have it delivered to the site for you, and the prices are very good.
The bakery is brilliant - try the fresh croissants in the morning - yummy!! The supermarket is well priced and well stocked.
We never get tired of returning to La Siesta, and will continue to come every 2 or 3 years (we like to try other places too, but have never found anywhere that makes us as happy as here!) .... our children and grandchildren are also carrying on the tradition :) xx
