We transfer from another hotel that clearly did not meet expectations, but were unsure of what we would encounter. The experience was great, from room, attention by staff, and facilities. Pool side was well supported, hotel was ultra clean. Only one block to beach, and walking distance to most restaurants. I agree with the rating, for being one of the... More

Clean, modern comfortable hotel with friendly, attentive and helpful staff. Hotel Kaktus Playa is just a few hundred yards from the lovely beach and warm, clear sea. Calella itself is a mix of touristy tat and charming old streets, with a thriving shopping district and wide selection of bars and restaurants. I had a breakfast-only deal at the hotel, so... More

Stayed early Sept 2017 as a couple. The reception, bar and pool area of the hotel are very nice and modern - very heavily air conditioned (perhaps too much). The folks on reception were friendly and helpful - especially one lady who gave good advise for getting to and from Barcelona (including ways to avoid crowded commuter trains). The food... More

We chose Calella as a destination for a quiet escape. It was a good choice-short flight (Barcelona), short(ish) journey by train. We chose the Hotel Kaktus Playa and went for the 'Privilege' booking as most reviewers recommended it. Also a good choice: lots of little extras that we'd otherwise have had to pay for: beach towels, wifi etc. But the... More
