H.TOP Amaika Superior
Ranked #12 of 43 Hotels in Calella
Reviewed August 5, 2011

The hotel is very nice and commands a very nice possition,one street back from the beach.The rooms are very well appointed and the room we had ,had 2 showers,but beware the walls are paper thin and we could hear the couple next door getting friendly. I had my favorite chocs in the room and each day after the maid had been in there were less,she was eating them.The bar staff seem to go out of there way to be grumpy,even ignoring you sometimes.The food as far as i am concerened is the worst i have ever been served up in a hotel anywhere in the world.

One of the most pleasant and relaxing location, with quality services. Rooms clean, chic, impeccable.
It was a beautiful experience because people are courteous and pleasant, and the discretion and common sense are at home both on the beach and the rest of the resort.
The beach is great, at least to me, because I liked the sand sea, clean water and the fact that merchants were absent.
I highly recommend the hotel and the resort!

We stayed at the amaika in july 2011, and thought this hotel was to a very high standard. The rooms were cleaned every day,and were spotless. Although we didnt request clean towels every day we were always left clean ones. The food was very good and always a good variety.We stayed right at the begining of the school holidays and never had trouble getting sunbeds, although we were always there between 9-9 30 am. We read in previous reviews that the bar staff were miserable, but we found them to be friendly, and helpful. we would stay here again.l

This is a great Hotel in a excellent location we have stayed three times before and have never been disappointed.
We stay all inclusive the food is OK,you always get a bottle of wine with your meal if you want and its good quality.you do not have to queue at the bar for a drink as you have to in the other HTop Hotels,also in the other HTop Hotels it can get a little noisy and can be full of 16 to 19 year old kids throwing plastic glasses at each other and getting drunk and being stupid
This is the best HTop Hotel in Spain and is good value for money

Having just returned from this Htop Hotel Amaika i am very disappointed .. this is no 4* Hotel and should be more 2 or 3* Star Rated! The food is poor with little selection and always cold, nothing much for the kids to eat! the pool is very small for the size of the hotel, the rooms were small too, and the beds rock hard!! and absolutely nothing going on at all this hotel .. on the up side the rooms were cleaned daily and there were some friendly staff!! it is close to the beach and shops .. very poor hotel in all and glad i never paid much money for it, but will not be returning to this hotel .. much better 4* out there! ..

Room Tip: Pool/Sea View rooms are prob the best!

The Amaika is situated just a few steps away from the main shopping street of Calella, and is also near all the night life. When I stayed there I was pleasantly surprised by how friendly the reception staff were in the hotel, and how all the public areas were in spotlass condition, considering it was tapering off from high season. The rooms were spacious, clean and had satelite T.V. Bathrooms had a bath and Shower, and our room had a balcony,( I was told all rooms in the hotel do!). The food in the hotel was very Spanish BUT we are in Spain so what do you expect. Not so many Brits in the hotel more Spanish, Italian, and Scandanavian guests. Well worth its 4* Spanish hotel rating.

having stayed here half a dozen times beforehand we thought the standards have dropped quite a bit(last visit 3 years ago)especially the food ,also my partner had her handbag stolen from her seat in the lounge,the staff wanted no fuss and put us off notifying police luckily she only lost some money as phone and camera were left in room,no management contacted us and i now think we should have made a bigger fuss,any way as for hotel staff in general good(bar especially)food average,rooms ok,cleanliness average,leak in shower from room above fixed but ceiling tile with hole not replaced,these problems did not stop us enjoying holiday overall but this is our last stay at the amaika but would go back to calella
