“Amaika 4 *”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2011

We are a couple aged 59/62 yrs,we visited this hotel for a week leaving on 7th Nov 2011.
Reception:- check in was quick and efficent,,Do not bother to request any particular floor as they don't take a bit of notice of requests. We requested a low floor and was given the 7th floor,,we also meet others who had also asked for a low floor and were also put on the 7th,,then we met people who had asked for a high floor and were given the 1st floor. So it appears requests are a waste of time. The receptionist just shrugs when these are pointed out.
Location:- The hotel is in a good location,,just minutes from the beach and just across from the main shopping streets.
Hotel:- The hotel is much better inside than outside,,where it looks like it could do with a coat of paint. It has been designed like the inside of a ship,,it is well maintained,bright and clean. The rooms are cleaned daily and towels are changed when you request.
Entertainment:- The evening entertainment leaves much to be desired and was one of the main causes of complaint that we heard during our stay. It was mainly disco type music,,half british and half spanish, but the same music every night.
Guests:- There was a mixture of British and Spanish guests,,ranging from families with young children to the more mature couples. Young adults were on the whole bored and complaining about the entertainment.
Food:- We thought the food was of a good quality and variety. It was served warm rather than hot.
Breakfast:- There was a choice of hot cooked breakfast,cold meats,cheeses etc,,cereal,fruit,juices etc.
Lunch and Dinner:-Soup,rolls, Plenty of salads..chicken,lamb,pork,pasta,chips,veg,muscels,prawns..potatoes,chips etc etc followed by fruit and a choice of desserts,,,the desserts were a bit bland.
In the dinning room you are offered a bottle of red,white,or rose wine both at lunch and dinner as part of the all inclusive deal. There is also juice,beer and water.
Bar:- The bar serves on the all inclusive until midnight,,it is open until 1AM but you have to pay after midnight.
The drinks are very weak,,it would be very hard to get merry on them.
Staff:- We found both the bar and restaurant staff to be very pleasant.
Calella:- There is not alot to do in Calella at this time of year and alot of teenagers/early twenties were bored, esp in the evenings as alot of bars were closed and the ones that were open were very quiet.

I booked this hotel for myself and the missus for a 3 night break after reading reviews on tripadvisor and all in all we were very happy with the stay. On arrival we did have to wait awhile to be allocated our room and wait around which took longer than expected..Decor was well done - made to look like the inside of a ship and the place was always well cleaned whether it be the rooms, bar area or restaurant. One of the best features of the hotel had to be the sauna and jacuzzi. A big thumbs up there for us as the weather was abit hit and miss so making full use of the sauna and jacuzzi (you book by the hour) was a massive plus.. The pool area isnt the biggest and is behind the wall seperating the road side (can get a little noisy with the coaches and cars) but not a massive problem this time of year as it won't be mega busy + the beach is pretty much on your front door. Staff were great, cant complain there.. Hotel is in a good location, right off the beach and a 10min walk to the train station (45mins getting into Barcelona).. We didnt really see much of the town as the weather wasnt on our side but with an all inclusive bar and restaurant you cant really complain.. Food was good too - this was a worry initially having read negative reviews but to be fair it was fine - it what you'd expect but does the job and there is variety and pleanty of it.. The only downsides - this time of year the aircon is switched off so if it does get hot (which it did on the odd day and night) you will only have heat coming out of the unit. We did query that as the unit in the room gave the option of heat or cold air but it wasnt to be the case. The missus wasnt too impressed with the hairdryer - said it wasnt powerful at all so ladies do take your own otherwise you'll be stuck in the bathroom for a long time drying your hair!.. All in all - we were happy with it and if in calella again, i'd prob stay here.

Stayed in the Amaika from the 8th October - 15th October with my family. The hotel is lovely and spotlessly clean. The rooms are kept nice with fresh towels daily. You get towels at the reception for the pool for a deposit of 5 euros daily which you get back at the end of your stay. the hotel does not really cater for children we had three with us and apart from one other girl they were the only ones in the hotel which was great for them as they had the swimming pool all to themselves. The entertainment in the evening left a lot to be desired but we had a great time watching all the golden oldies dancing and believe me it was a comedy show on its own! The animation team consisted of one person, Marta, and she was great doing bingo and quizes every afternoon by the pool and the odd night doing a disco for our children, they loved her and she was brilliant with them. The food was not great but we did not starve and as I keep saying you only get what you pay for so we did not expect 4 star food. The location of the hotel is superb as it is in the centre and only 2 minutes from the lovely beach. Calella is lovely and it has kept a lot of its tradition I will definitely go back. You must take a trip on the train that takes you all round Callela for only 2 Euros. If you are looking for a nice quiet relaxing holiday and are not fussy eaters then the Amaika is the hotel for you.

We booked this when looking for a hotel to stay in whist attending the Geocaching Mega Event in the town, we booked the flights with Jet2, and the hotel seperately. On stepping off the plane we headed to the train station and got the train to Calella (7.70 for two singles), changed in Barcelona and then to the resort, the walk from the station took a little over 15 minutes but there are loads of taxis if required.
The hotel is ideally located a 2 minute walk from the beach and the same to the shops, we checked in and had booked the all inclusive package at a good rate (We paid less here All Inclusive than others in the area which were only half board), the room was big and airy, spotlessly clean. Some of the reviews say to ask for a room on the first floor, don't ask for Room 110 as this was where we were and although it does have its own terrace with sunbeds it was like a prison call, the sides of the terrace are at least 7 feet tall and you can't see out, but everybody can see in!! The room was cleaned every day and although we didn't want the towels changing they were changed anyway.
The food was nothing spectacular, it was good enough to stop you going hungry. The salad bar was always well presented and the vegetable soup was nice with the croutons, the one observation I would make is there were never any vegetables, just sprouts. The staff in the restaurant were fantastic, point to note, don't bother queueing as we did, some nationalities will walk straight past you and grab a table. (Bit like the sunbed story)
The bar staff were always helpful, there is a coffee machine in the bar where you can help yourself but it is rough, for 50 cents we managed to get a decent coffee from the bar. The daily cocktails were fine, but like previous comments don't drink in the bar to get drunk as you won't, but its a nice place to sit and relax at the end of the day.
Don't forget it you do stay at this hotel you can book the sauna/jacuzzi for your personal use for an hour a day. It is all cleaned for you and the towels are provided, you can lock the door and just enjoy the peace and tranquility of it, we done quite a bit of walking so it was nice at the end of the day.
All in all it was a nice hotel at a nice price, we would return to Calella although not to this hotel as the food wasn't up to much and the pool area was small and din't get much sun. Oh and you need to leave a 20 Euro deposit at reception for the remote control for the TV so budget for this if required.

Didn't expect too much and the hotel pretty much achieved expectations. Don't go if you expect high quality drinks and food. Drinks apparently are specially brewed for the ' All Inclusive ' market and are about 25%- 30% less acoholic content. We drank at lot one evening and could hardly tell. Thankfully we went when the Octoberfest beer festival was on in Calella so we went to the beer tent night most nights and drank decent larger. Everything is adequate and reasonable value so don't pay full price, get a deal. Room was fair but on the backside of the hotel with an apartment block 5m away. Didn't spend much time in it thankfully. Restuarant staff were very good to their credit and kept the buffet trays topped up and there was a reasonable choice through the week, not many repeats apart from the daily vegetable soup. Wouldn't go back to this hotel, would certainly go back to Calella.

Room Tip: try and get a room overlooking the pool area, don't think you get a sea-view from any room.
