“Basic but Brilliant”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

I came on a trip here with some friends and it was outstanding. It is very cheap, but basic. The rooms were spotless and they were very comfortable. We had a half-board deal. Breakfast included a large range of traditional Spanish food aswell as an excellent range of English food. There was an unimited drinks service at both breakfast and dinner, however for the more popular drinks, i.e anything that wasn't fruit juice or water was in need of purchase, however at a reasonable price. There was a bar open in the lobby which was open early till late.
Should we require any service of any size shape or form at any hour of the day the people that worked there spoke excellent english and were very happy to help at any hour of the day.
The hotel is located in the centre of the town, so shops are literally all around. It is a simple layout of the town, so everything is easy to find on a cross-section, and the beach is around a 60-second walk from the hotel.
The beach was incredible, Sandy, white and included volleyball nets built in.

Well worth every penny!

Room Tip: Rooms with balconies are very nice, however you may choose to go into one of the larger rooms, or su...

This is a more traditional type of hotel rather than usual tourist hotels, situated on a quiet street but only 100 yards from the main shopping street, bars etc.The main drawback for me was that although there is a small sunbathing area because of high buildings all around the sun hardly ever shines on it!! You always use the pool and sunbathing areas of any of the bigger hotels if tanning is essential and its only 200yards from the excellent beach.
Large lounges and well stocked bar. Dining room was a bit cramped but the food was excellent for a 3*. Service was excellent with helpful and cheerful staff.

I booked a room for 3 days in a last minute decision to extend my holiday and I booked a single room (which turned out to be a 3 bedder). Decor was old fashioned and the beds comfortable enough. The bathroom had an excellent powerful shower in the bath and there was also a bidet. My only complaint was there was no balcony or opening window ( room303) but the air conditioning was fast and effective with a remote control. Also TV. There was also a good fan.For a few euros more I could have changed to a room with a balcony, but I was only staying a few days and only ate and slept there and it only cost me £44 for 3 night half board.Although there was loud music some nights when in my room I could not hear it at all and slept better there than I ever have before when in Spain, the room was silent. Hardly any traffic as its on a side street.
There are weighing scales to check your baggage is not overweight for the trip home. As I was hand luggage only this was great to know my case was not overweight before I left for my flight home. The receptionists were very helpful and can organise lots of day trips and outings for you. You can have a free bicycle for two hours and they have free to use umbrellas and beach parasols. internet access but expensive and uncomfortable but there is an internet place very near costing 1E an hour. 5 minute walk to railway station.
The only downside for me was that 95% of the clientel were German and as I was travelling alone this meant there was no-one to chat to.
Overall the hotel was excellent value for money and I would stay there again.

The whole place was spotless.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a room with a balcony, First and second floor rooms may not be as quiet ?

LOCATION:
Hotel Neptuno is in a great location in our opinion. When you leave the hotel, to the right (.5 a block) at the end of the street is Parc Dalmau which is a nice place to go for a long or short walk. It's a fun place to explore and the views are good. If you go left and walk to the end, ( approx 2.5 blocks) you will find the beautiful beach on the Mediterranean which is huge!!! On the walk to the beach you will also find the pedestrian roadway with loads of shops, cafes and bars. Don't be afraid to venture up and down the narrow one way streets. You may make some wonderful discoveries.

FOOD:
Our holiday included breakfast and supper. The food was good. We found the breakfast to be very well done with something for everyone, Fresh fruits, tomatoes, cucumbers, yogurt, bacon, sausage, eggs, cold meats, liver pates, cheese, cereal, breads, rolls, pastries and juices, tea, coffee and cava. On Friday nights they had a Catalan buffet meal. The other nights they had a very good selection of meats, fish, potatoes, rice, vegetables, salads, soup, bread and a good selection of desserts for those with a sweet tooth.

STAFF:
The staff were awesome. The servers in the dining room were courteous, friendly and prompt. A big Mucho Gracias to Manuela, Pia, Lucie, Jordi, Ramona and Ari. The bartenders Cristobal and Jose were helpful, courteous and a wealth of knowledge. Thanks to both of them for making our stay a good one. They represented the hotel well and always had a smile. Hello to Zorro. ;-) The front desk staff were very helpful too. Thank you especially to Barbara for helping us arrange our trip to Montserrat and finding out info for us with regards to my ability to get around with a cane. We loved that excursion and had a wonderful time !! Our room was always well cleaned and our maid was a sweetheart.

ENTERTAINMENT:
When we were at Hotel Neptuno, they had flamenco dancers on Monday nights, dance lessons on Wed nights and a disco on Thursday nights. They have 2 pools. One that is for everyone and one that is for over 21. They had a TV room with pinball machines and pool table. The bar area is a nice place to have a drink or one of many coffees. The pool deck, terrace area has umbrellas with comfortable tables and chairs where you can also have a drink. You are close to many establishments if you want to be entertained outside of the hotel.

We had a wonderful holiday. Thank you Neptuno and Calella !!!

Room Tip: If you want a quieter room, I would suggest asking for a room at the back of the hotel because the b...

I really appreciated the people at this hotel, everybody were so nice to us.

The food was very good, cleanliness of rooms great also. However, I would have appareciated a better air conditioning in the room. Other than that, really nothing to say. I would return.

We stayed for 10 nights in an apartment here. Beware that you will be asked for a deposit of 100 Euros on checking in to cover any damage to the apartment during your stay. We hadn't been warned about this in advance, but 100 euros on top of the money for the safety deposit box was an unexpected sting.

The rooms were nice enough - however the windows offer nothing in terms of sound proofing. My other half is a very light sleeper and struggled to get a good night's sleep during our entire stay. Normally I sleep soundly but also found it difficult. The hotel entertainment usually ended around 11pm, but noises like people shouting and singing on the street below, lorries, glass being emptied from bins and people moving furniture around at 4am made it very difficult to sleep. Our apartment (number 20) also had ants. Hopefully they will sort this out. The air conditioning was good.

One member of the reception staff was helpful - I think her name was Barbara. However, when we encountered a problem with regards to our return transfer we largely dealt with another younger girl who was not helpful.

The hotel is very nicely presented and the pool areas were kept clean. We particularly liked the adults only pool area - as it was quieter there. Note that there isn't all day sunshine due to height of buildings and narrow streets in Calella - the pool doesn't get much of a chance to heat up in the sun and you will have to follow the sun around!

We only opted for breakfast as part of our board. The breakfast buffet was decent, with a good selection of fresh fruit, bread, fried eggs, bacon, cereal, cakes, yoghurt and anything else you might want.

The pool tables could do with fixing! We played on both - one was slanted so much it was impossible to get the balls to the other end of the table, the other was majorly cracked and the balls jumped off the table.

The bar staff were very nice here. Overall, we probably wouldn't stay here again if we re-visited Calella - but it was nice as a base from which to explore Calella and Barcelona.

Room Tip: 100 Euro deposit if you choose an apartment as opposed to a room. Not for light sleepers.

Spent a week in mid-August and had a great time at this hotel. Food was excellent great choice every meal time lots of fruit and salad. Staff were very friendly and welcoming, reception staff very helpful. Hotel very clean and cleaners always seemed to be cleaning communal areas. Pool was great - even though the hotel was full the pool was never overcrowded the separate adult only area was a bonus. Lovely atmosphere at the hotel with lots of different nationalities. Hotel 5 minutes walk from Calella beach and train station. Entertainment every night and kids club with mini disco. Free bike hire at the hotel for up to 2 hours and some beach activities free.

Had a family room which was quite spacious only downside was there were not enough plug sockets in the room, just one for tv and one in bathroom so was a bit of a scramble to charge phones use hair straighteners etc.

But all in all this is a great value 3 star hotel - recommended !!!
