Just back from a 5 night stay at the Merce. The hotel is in a great location in the old town. It's a really nice area with lovely squares and narrow streets. Very Spanish and unspoilt. The beach is just a short walk away.
The hotel reception is lovely as is the dinning room. However, the rooms are not so great. We were in room 109 and didn't have a balcony. Our room was off a shared terrace. The rooms are very dated and in need of a complete make over! The maids do a good job of keeping them clean though. All the staff are really nice and friendly in the hotel. The pool and roof terrace are lovely and clean.
We were half board and the food was excellent. Buffet breakfast and buffet evening meal.
My only complaint about this hotel is the noise! The walls are paper thin! we heard people slamming doors, talking loudly, shouting and rearranging furniture during the night...every night! The church bells didn't bother us at all. There was no need to wear a watch when sitting around the pool!
The free wifi is good. You have to ask at reception for a password. They give you 2 passwords if you want wifi on a laptop and phone.
Santa Susana and Calella are within walking distance. The train station near the beach is handy for day trips. Lots of supermarkets in the area including; Lidl, Aldi, Dia, Carrefour, Consum, Spa & Eroski.
I would definitely go back to Pineda, but probably not to this hotel.
We booked through travel republic and the transfer to and from the airport was very good. They were at the pick up point on time for our return journey to the airport.
