Stayed in October. Great service and lovely spacious hotel. Rooms were very clean and well-designed. Breakfast was good. on the last day we asked for early breakfast which was provided with no problem, complete with coffee.

Agree with other reviews, not the prettiest building from the front but a really nice hotel inside with beautiful gardens and with a great good sized pool and adjacent kiddie’s pool.
The walk to the centre is less than 5 mins via the gardens and a little longer back up the hill. The rooms are good but the newly decorated rooms on the ground floor are like stepping into a different hotel, really smart and finished to a very high standard.
Breakfast very good with lots of choice and the staff are very helpful; overall you won't go wrong at the Hotel Alga.

Room Tip: Grap a newly decorated room

Although not the prettiest building in this incredibly beautiful area, this hotel improves once inside and gets even better when you wander through to to the tranquil gardens and pool area.
The rooms are a nice size, clean, great shower. Sadly ours faced the car park and not the sea but it didn't matter as we were out for most of the time. The wifi connection was good in the rooms.
The best part of the hotel was the garden and pool, which on a hot Spanish public holiday was a real treat to spend some time from the mass of tourists.
The hotel is in a great position, just a short walk to the town and beaches and an easy evening stroll to Llafranch.
The staff on reception spoke English and were helpful.
The breakfast wasn't quite up to the standard of similar hotels in the area but that certainly won't stop me going back.

Room Tip: Try and get a sea/garden view.

Very Nice Hotel, excellent location to centre - 5 min walk - slight walk uphill on the way back. Would recommend that you request a room over the garden - otherwise you may have a view over the car park.

Breakfast choice was very good - Parking was very tight - staff were helpfull.

Nice walk by coast to LLfrance - 15 minutes

We stayed a week at the Hotel Alga and loved it. We opted for a superior room which was very tastefully decorated - the only downside for us was not having a balcony but not a big deal as we didn't spend much time in our room. The room also had a decent size bathroom with lots of shelf space and a great walk in shower. The hotel is really well decorated throughout - a mix of old and new and neutral colours.

The gardens were great and the swimming pool fab - great to have a decent size pool in the hotel.

Breakfast was a cold buffet and had lots of choice - although towards the end of the week we were ready for something different as it was more of less the same everyday. Can thoroughly recommend the almond cake!

We also had a meal in the hotel one night - it was very good and a reasonable price, particularly for Callela which can be very expensive. However be warned that they charge Euro 6 for a table outside.

Staff all very friendly and helpful.

Location is great too - about a 5 minute walk to the centre and beachs.

No hassle hotel with perfect location for this unspoiled town. Parking is usually quite busy (and a little tight) but isn't normally a problem. Lovely swimming pool and descent rooms with good air-con that face the sea/garden. Friendly reception.

We went 1/2 board. Excellent breakfast but evening/dinner was a little dissappointing. Limited menu choices (usually Pork or Fish!), If I went again I'd go for the B&B option.

we arrived late at night. The hotel kept the chef on to make sure we had a full meal before they closed the resturant. The staff were really friendly and the room which had a terrace looked out onto the bay - what a great way to start the day. We had good food - a breakfast with as much as you wanted a ,loads of fresh fruit. We were helped by fantastic weather - sunny all day every day. i think this place is well worth staying at if you are around Callella for a few days.

Room Tip: get room 210 overlooking the gardens and the bay
