“Special trip to La Cala”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Spent four wonderful days at the La Cala Hotel in one of their newly refurbished rooms. The room was gorgeous with its modern white and blue decor, a power shower and a balcony with a fabulous view of the sea. Breakfast was continental with fresh croissants, toast and different pastries on offer each day. The staff were lovely and ensured that our stay was one of the best breaks we have had. We would recommend a stay at this hotel without reservation and will certainly be returning.

Room Tip: Refurbished rooms on the third floor are quite special.

I spend several months each year living on the outskirts of Benidorm. When I want a complete change,I visit La Cala, a relaxing Bay in Finestrat. The La Cala Hotel is situated a few steps from the beach. I received a warm welcome and found a bottle of bubbly in a bucket of ice waiting in my room. A lovely touch. All the staff are extremely friendly and obliging. I chose a room with a balcony and side view of the beach/sea. The whole Hotel was spotless. I was puzzled why it only rated 2 star as I couldn't fault it in any department. There are a choice of bars/Restaurants adjoining the hotel. The Spanish bar to the immediate right as you leave the Hotel has a good local atmosphere with friendly,English speaking waiters who are in no rush to close. I enjoyed sitting outside at 1-30 in the morning listening to the waves and different languages being spoken. The temperature sign opposite read 17 degrees ! A lovely Hotel in an incredible location.

Room Tip: The choice is balcony or no balcony. Front view or side view.

We made our annual pilgrimage to Hotel La Cala from 18-25 May 2014 and it was as good as ever! Not a lot we can say to add to previous reviews which we have given as the standards were high as usual, an added bonus is that they now provide a kettle and cups so that you can make tea etc (you will need to take tea bags with you or buy locally though). It is nice to return and see the same staff year after year as they all provide such a welcome and are always happy to help. We usually travel later (end June) so the resort was a little quieter than we are used to but there was still plenty going on, there are new bars in the bay itself, nice to see what was a run down end of terrace building when we first started visiting turned into a stylish bar which had only opened a couple of days prior to our arrival. As we have previously noted there are more and more UK visitors finding this lovely little resort which can be a haven of peace but Benidorm is only a short bus or taxi away if you need a livelier evening. Would not hesitate in recommending this little hotel.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms with side sea view are good, especially great if you take your breakfast back to th...

For the next time if you want we also could provide you the tea bags for a little supplement, it is not necessary to bring them. We wish you all the best and hopefully see you next year.

Stayed for a night, lovely location sea front, with views of the beach and hills, I had a quite top floor sea facing room which was simple but clean and modern. It isn't far to the busy night life if you want it but at the same time away from the hustle and bustle. There are a few nice places to eat down on the sea front below it.

Reception was polite and helpful

We arrived on the 28.09.13 arriving at the hotel there was a mix up and me and my husband got given a room with 2 single beds. When we raised the issue that we booked a double room the staff could not apologise enough and quickly changed our room. Make sure you book a sea view room, the views are amazing over looking the beach and sea ! You walk down a few steps from hotel door over a small road and there is the beach. Under the hotel there are a few spanish owned bars a but I could not hear a thing at night no music no people when balcony door is closed. Super market across across the road and heading up the hill are few more bars and restaurants. We used a english bar at bottom of the hill. You cant miss it a few union jack flags out side. Owned by a lovely couple that cook the best roast dinners ! And honestly the cheapest around. Market on a tuesday and get bus number 2 or 3 takes 10-15 mins in to benidorm costs €1.50. The hotel is very clean spotless in fact. The staff bend over backwards to help you and are so friendly. Breakfast is basic but all freshly baked bread rolls, croissant and pastry with jams, is very nice. Generally a great hotel in very way. We will be going back very soon.

the hotel is in an outstanding location overlooking a beautiful beach. the staff are lovely and it's spotlessly clean there is a very small number of rooms which you would think would make it a quiet hotel but unfortunately the restaurant bar below with the massively loud entertainment till 3am 2 nights in a row did spoil it for us as our wee one has special needs so a calmer environment was needed. the entertainment was nothing to do with the hotel but you need to take into account the surrounding properties and their management as well and I'm afraid it was a spoiler. the hotel room we had was a family room which had 4 single beds with a wee side table in between each we were a family of 2 adults a 15 yr old and our youngest who is 12 so we did feel quite cramped in the room. there was a big wardrobe but not big enough for four and there were no hangers. the bathroom was tiny. the balcony only had two chairs but then again it only had room for two.
don't get me wrong the staff are fantastic. so friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for us but I don't think we would go back to that hotel as it was too small a room. and the noise was an issue.
we chose la cala area to get away from the hustle and bustle of the lively end of Benidorm. the area is great sea view perfect but not for us this time.

Dear Linda,

we are very sorry that you couldn't join this time your holidays in our hotel. In summer the people are wont to join the terraces and normally we try to control it from midnight on if the clients inform us about it. If you like the beach La Cala and its surroundings maybe you would be interested in our apartments in a building beside the hotel. You can have a look in our homepage for more information.
