MedPlaya Hotel Santa Monica
Ranked #6 of 43 Hotels in Calella
Reviewed July 1, 2013

The hotel was nice and clean and the staff were very friendly. The entertainment team worked very hard even though many guests chose not to watch the evening shows. The other guests were mainly Russian or German and were mostly families or couples. Thankfully the hotel was quiet at night and we didn't have any trouble with drunken guests or noisy teens. The only downside was the restaurant, it was far too small for a hotel of this size. Breakfast and Lunch were ok but the evening meal was a bit of a farce. You have to queue for a table and then queue for your drink and then queue for your meal, it was exhausting!! We tried to go at different times and found that the later you leave it the quieter it was. The food itself was the usual all inclusive fayre, it was hot and plentiful and the desserts were very nice.

Calella itself has some nice beaches and a good selection of shops and bars all within walking distance of the hotel. All in all, a nice place but I wouldn't stay at this hotel again.

Hotel was very nice although could do with up dating. My husband son and myself had problems with meal times spent long time waiting in long queues not enough seating for all the hotel guests the food was nice lots for all different tastes lots of salad,pasta,fish and meat they served chips every night which got abit boring. Very child friendly pool for little ones suitable from 1 yearolds upwards, my two year old loved it. All staff were lovely and very kind and helpful. The rooms were basic. Could of done with a kettle and a area to dry washing on the balcony. The entertainment was very good different every night the kids club was very enjoyable and all children joined in. Very happy with our stay at hotel santa monica.

The food is ok. The restaurant organisation is good. But me and my wife had a misfortune of staying in a room facing the road, and therefore listening to a terrible noise 24 h a day. The owner refused to change our room and behaved very unfriendly thoughout the whole period of 07-15 th June 2013. The room was relatively clean. No fridge. 4-Euros day room Wi-Fi.
Besides, a 10 am check-out!!! Extremely disappointing experience!

On arrival we were checked in very quickly, I had ordered a fridge and it was there. The room had 3 beds in so we used the middle one to put our bits on. We had a great balcony with 2 sunbeds on and a table and chairs. The sun was on the balcony all day.
The food was varied and very good quality. The staff were very friendl, there was a Geordie lad on the bar, and Monica on the bar also, she was Spanish but had a great Geordie accent and Scottish. The animation team were fantastic funny and very talented.
This hotel is very good value for money very central 5 mins from the beach, 15mins from the rail station.

Although the weather was a bit iffy during the week at least the hotel was very accommodating with comfortable surroundings, good food & excellent staff!
The rooms were fine with a good bathroom, cleaned daily with fresh towels!
We were all-inclusive & all the meals had plenty of choice, the dining room staff were excellent, nothing was to much trouble!
The animation team were great, getting everyone involved & the shows they put on a night were very entertaining.
They all work so hard & Fernando was a scream!
Bar staff in the main bar were excellent especially Ray, Vitali & the ladies!
Everyone from cleaners to reception were great, very friendly & helpful!
Would definitely come back to this hotel & we were pleasantly surprised with Calella, how nice & clean everywhere was & the beach is lovely with a nice promenade to walk along!

Room Tip: The rooms at the front have a better view!
