Will say straight away we opted to upgrade to a privilege room at time of booking. Main extras are free wifi in room, use of spa, fridge, room safe and sea view.( 3rd floor). Reception very up to date with a quick check in and staff very polite. Our room wasnt as modern as the ground floor area of hotel... 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

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. As to well equipped, there was no safe, no fridge and nothing much else. Further the... More
