“fabulous holiday !!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

this hotel is hard to fault - it's central but quiet , modern but still retains some olde worlde charm , all the staff were helpful and friendly , the food at breakfast was great - lots of choice (and with a fantastic view of the sea and boats from the breakfast room ), cleanliness second to none , our room was spacious , the bathroom lovely with a great shower and the bed comfortable . our room was at the rear of the hotel so although the view was pleasant it wasn't as good as the stunning view from the front bedrooms .we loved the old pictures of the hotel that were on display in the public areas which date back as early as the 1920s !! i have two gripes which is why i have not graded the hotel as excellent ... firstly i felt that the amount the hotel charges for a room with seaview is far too much ( we were quoted an extra £200 for one week !!!) and the lack of parking . we either had to use the small public carpark ( 12 euros a day !) or drive around until we found a space on the roadside that was within a comfortable walking distance . maybe this is only a problem during the peak months but i thought it was worth a mention .
we did have a fabulous holiday and will definately return again to enjoy this wonderful resort !!!

Room Tip: be prepared to pay if you want a room with a sea view .

We really enjoyed staying here. The hotel is ideally located in Calella within a few steps to the beach and centre. Our room was very comfortable and clean with a great shower, although we didn't choose a sea view room, the outside space looked slightly larger than the balconies. The room was also in a quiet spot. We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. The breakfast selection was fantastic and although the drinks were from a machine, there was a good selection of different coffees and other drinks. We were sorry to leave the great views from the breakfast room on our last day. Calella is a very romantic spot. We hope to return and have a sea view room next time.

Having previously stayed at the Hotel La Torre we decided to try the Mediterrani having read that it had been refurbished. What a great choice ! Lovely helpful staff, spotless bright rooms and a WOW view. Not the largest rooms but well designed to make use of space. New and very smart bathroom with excellent shower. The public areas of the hotel would lead you to believe it was going to be all dark wood and dated decor. Just the opposite, our room was exactly like the one on the the photos with lovely modern styling. Unless you only wan't somewhere to lay your head, don't even consider rear rooms. The view from the front is totally mesmerising.
Breakfast was better than some 4 stars we've had with a very varied choice of items, but no hot choices.
The hotel has a small bar and offers snacks to order. A few tables outside are a nice spot for a light lunch.
The perfect location of this little hotel more than makes up for it's lack of 5 star facilities and the quality of the rooms together with friendliness of the staff make it a very good choice for couples.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms cost more but have a larger and more private balcony

This recently refurbished hotel has an excellent position - looking over the "ramblas" of lovely Calella, surely one of the most romantic spots in the Costa Brava. The staff are very friendly and helpful, breakfast has lots of variety, and they really care for their guests. We were delighted with our stay of 3 nights and would recommend the hotel without reservation

Room Tip: A sea facing room costs more but is definitely worth it!

We loved the hotel, despite we had windows to the rear side, the location is lovely with a frontal access to the beach and a bar service (with few options, not a real bar)
The rooms were very clean and confortable. We have a good memory of it.

Great place to stay. Very clean and stylish rooms, balcony with sea view (fantastic!), good breakfasts, very friendly staff. The only minus is no WiFi access in the rooms.
If i visit Calella de Palafrugell again, i won't think twice where to stay.

Do you want to stay in a traditional Spanish hotel right on the sea? Then this is it. I have stayed here many times and never been disappointed. The view from your bedroom and the dining room is superb. The hotel has been refurbed to a high standard without taking away it's charm. The beds are very comfortable and the bathroom has an excellent shower. The continental breakfast and service is very good. Can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor sea view room
