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

Wifi was free because we booked directly with the hotel. Swimming pool was nice. Breakfast was in a large canteen but the food... 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. As to well equipped, there was no safe, no fridge and nothing much else. Further the... More

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. Small and cute with a comfortable sized balcony for two that had a great view of the ocean. The breakfast was superb. This was the best hotel breakfast I have seen in years. I was... More

There were no complaints with the hotel. But it would have been nice to converse with staff in English. Staff had a language from the Eastern Bloc countries and I speak some Spanish to get by.
