Staff were friendly, hotel was spotless, food was amazing especially Joseph's omelettes that he cooks to order for breakfast......couldn't find anywhere better if I tried. Hotel is well situated with only a five minute walk to the beach.

This was our second visit to Calella , we particularly like the ease of making our own way from Barcelona Airport to calella very straight forward. The Kaktus Playa itself is a nice hotel with a pleasant pool area with comfortable seating; however the sunbeds are not conducive to a full on day of sun worshipping! We had a comfortable... More

Booked through LastMinute.com, looked an ideal getaway for my daughter and I for a days after her exams. Arrived to find the "comfortable standard twin, well equipped" room was the smallest room I have had the misfortune of staying in, revelling some in NY.

Calella was beautiful! A great location. About a 17 minute walk from the Calella station. Kaktus Playa was a lovely hotel. The room was perfect.
