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.
