Firstly I will start by saying we were not even booked for this hotel - we had booked the Planamar but on arrival there we were told we could not stay there and were sent to the Olympic! We were not informed in advance of this and we were very unhappy to be moved especially as the reviews at the Planamar were vastly improved!
We are assuming HTop over book on a regular basis and feel it is acceptable to move customers with no warning - HTop - if you bother to read these reviews take notice - it is NOT ok to do this!
So onto the hotel itself - the hotel is very dated and needs a refurb.
The food was just about passable but it reminded me of school dinners!
It has to be the worst 3 star all inclusive we have ever stayed at. The pool area however was fine.
The major negative point I would have to stress is their ridiculous card system for drinks - it was far too restrictive. You could not even ask for a double! The hotel chain used the excuse of the number of plastic cups that were being wasted - what a load of rubbish!! The only reason I could see for this was so they can monitor exactly how much customers are drinking.
The positive aspect of the hotel is its location to some good quality restaurants - we can recommend Les Caves and the Uruguayan restaurant. We would definitely suggest taking some extra money and visiting these.
We would return to Calella but not to this or any other HTop hotel!
