“Great Hotel/Apartment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We have now been to La Cala 4 times and this has been the best location. We stayed in the apartments through La Cala Hotel. Beautiful view from apartment up in the hill and lovely pool. Our friends stayed in Hotel and the room was lovely and clean. Staff were excellent and always very helpful. Lovely room top veranda and internet room, beautifully decorated. We had a lovely evening relaxing while the kids used the internet to chat to friends on facebook. Definately will be back to La Cala Hotel...x

What more can I say. We have stayed in Calla many times and at various places depending on what we need at the time and we love it.

This was our second stay at Hotel La Calla and we will be back as soon as we can.

Don't be fooled by the star rating this hotel is clean, friendly, well located right on the beech and with a lovely continental breakfast.

We had a noisy night with the bar downstairs being very awake until 4am, but that's the joy of being right on the front! I wouldn't change a single thing about our stay.

The buses are now 1.50 up to Benidorm fior a lovely walk along the front to old town, but the food is just as good in Calla and as good a price, so do come back and try.

Hi to Dianna on reception who is always pleasant & helpful.

This little hotel sets the standard for service , the staff are the backbone of this superb establishment , very clean ,attentive but unobtrusive service , nice continental breakfast . The location is right on the beachfront .The hotel could put some beachchairs in the rooms and charge a deposit . Going to book again for next year . A special mention to the hardworking maids who clean the rooms on a daily basis , Thank you !

Room Tip: Side view or beachfront well worth the extra !

Just returned from a 3 day break to La Cala Finestrat and have to say after reading reviews before we went we booked into Hotel La Cala. Never expected our stay to be as good as we read but must say it was above and beyond. Staff at Hotel La Cala were so pleasant and cant do enough for their guests. On arrival there was champagne on ice n a rose for me as I was there celebrating my 40th Birthday. Our room was upgraded to a beach front rom with the most perfect views ever. La Cala bay is the most lovely setting and we'll be sure to return. Infact we will be booking back into Hotel La Cala and taking our children with us next time.
Hotel La Cala, thank you all very very much for our lovely stay, couldnt have wished for a better experience for our little break. Rooms were very clean, cleaned daily and beds and pillows were very comfortable with air con in room. All highly recommended ans we wished we'd booked for longer xx See you all very soon! x

Room Tip: If you have the option to pay a small extra charge for a beach front room we would definately say it...

We were staying in a room with balcony and the view to the bay was amazing. The hotel is right next to the beach, the rooms are very clean and comffortable, the people at the reception were great and there were little restaurants quite near with good food and amazing prices. Totally recommended if you are looking for a place next to a beatiful beach. Must say the hotel is not fancy but you can not ask for anything better for the place.
BTW, do not stay in benidorm...not really nice at all!

Room Tip: take it with balcony. room 309

We have been to La Cala, many times and have stayed at various venues from hotels to apartments, but location wise none of them compete with Hotel La Cala. It is literally as said before on the beach.

You will find this review informative for both the good and bad points, but of course it is only our opinion.

We stayed in room 203, with a balcony and a side view of the beach. A very good view indeed. The room was of 2 singles pushed together, fridge, desk, built in wardrobe, tv and an en-suite with shower over the bath. Upon first entering the hotel, check-in was easy, we were also presented with the air-con and tv remotes along with the single door card.

The room we found easy to enter and very clean, also being light and airy. Double sliding glass doors to the balcony were very clean also. Ample storage space for clothing is provided in the wardrobe which has drawers at the bottom.

Numerous tv channels, with two british ones being available. The fridge was empty apart from two small bottles of water, be warned these are not free. All lights worked well, the shower was brilliant with plenty of hot water at all times.

The hotel is a bed and breakfast establishment only and the breakfast is served from 0800 to 1200 hrs in the cafeteria. It consists of croissant, bread roll, or sliced bread with an assortment of packet preserves and pates with tea, coffee and juice. It is not self service, one queue's to be served by the pleasant lady behind the counter. For us the breakfast was not up to scratch, for others it will be fine. The room was cleaned and made up daily, with new towels if required and the fridge re-stocked with water. Our only down-side was that one cleaner left the room as she found it with all doors locked, the other one left the room with the balcony doors wide open and un-secure as it is possible to gain access from next doors balcony albeit with a climb. Again some will not like this, others won't mind.

For location, you can't get better, right on the beach and right in the middle of town, with everything you need close to hand, but bear in mind that the hotel is above bars etc and if they have a late night / early morning, then so do you. It didn't bother us as we like this sort of thing, however it could be a pain for some.

Would we stay again? Yes we would, it is in a beautiful position. It's not the cheapest, but not the dearest either. We had a very good week.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony, without one and this hotel doesn't really work.

We have just returned from a week at la cala hotel, and we could not have chosen a better hotel
we stayed in room 309 and the views across the bay were fantastic.
All the staff are very helpful and friendly, the continental buffet breakfast was fine which you could take to your room for breakfast on your balcony if you wanted to.
The hotel is right on the beach with plenty of bars and restraunts to eat and drink in, all at good prices.
The hotel is 2 star but the service and attention you get is worth a much better rating.
There is free wi-fi throughout the hotel which was great.
we don`t normally return to hotels but we will to the La Cala

Room Tip: Room 309 with a front view of the sea
