We stayed in the Santa Monica Hotel in Calella for the first time during UK half term at the end of May. It was a nice time to visit as all the European children are NOT on half term, so plenty of room in and around the pool etc without hundreds of kids screaming all the time. All the staff were really friendly and seemed genuinely interested in helping us with any questions etc. I emailed them beforehand to request a room on the 1st floor over looking the pool and to our surprise this is exactly what we got! so very happy with that. The room was clean and tidy, but a little outdated. Could have done with a couple more pillows and blankets for the beds (but as we didn't ask for any, we can't really complain). We only stayed B&B so breakfast was quite reasonable with the usual choice of continental breakfast choice. As the weather was not that good for our short stay (very cloudy and a massive storm with hail stones)!! we decided to eat in the hotel restaurant one night, which we were not really impressed with the dinner food. We are glad that we went B&B and not all inclusive as food outside the hotel in the old town restaurants was nice - and cheap!! The entertainment staff were great and put on some really good shows etc. there was even a reptile show where you get to hold and touch a very large python... Overall we had a great few days in this hotel and we were not disappointed in any of it really (apart from the weather) but that is nature. The beach is only a few minutes walk away and is clean and sandy, the pool area was nice too. On the last day we used the hotels safe, secure and CCTV monitored luggage room where you can also use toilets, shower and hairdryer - which again was a bonus for a budget hotel. All in all we would return to this hotel without a doubt as it suited us for a short budget break as a couple with a 7 year old child.
