“Hotel on boardwalk/beach”
Reviewed October 25, 2010

Nice view when facing the ocean. Just above the long boardwalk and across the beach. Nice beach/water. Shopping and restaurants nearby. Clean room. Hard beds.

Stayed here with large tour group. The reception area is very small but this did not cause any problems. The staff were efficient and friendly. The meals were acceptable though not suitable for vegetarians. The rooms were clean and if you did not have a balcony the side rooms still had a se view. The hotel is situated on the seafront and is close to the railway station. The only minus point was that there were no English language tv stations.

We stayed in the Kursaal for three nights as part of a "Preferred Travel" holiday package. Having read some of the reviews prior to departure we had misgivings, however our stay was most enjoyable and we found the staff to be very helpful and attentive.

The room we had was superb and had an excellent view over the beach. The meals were better than adequate, and a bonus was that wine and water was included as part of the evening meal.

Breakfast was however a bit of a scrum and we are sure that the self service buffet lay-out could be better organised, particularly the availability of coffee which emanated from two very slow and cumbersome machines.

The hotel is well situated, clean, and ideal for a short stay.

If you want an extremely good value meal try Ca L'Emma a couple of blocks along from the hotel in one of the back streets. A three course meal with wine and water included for €9.50 must be the best value in Calafell.

Stayed here for two nights while on a tour of French and Spanish Catalonia. Room very small with large bathroom. The food was appalling; Paella was not the fragrant,golden rice and seafood dish expected but brown and strange tasting with the only seafood being two mussels on top! The bar area was tiny and there was nowhere to sit. Staff couldn't care less and I was glad when we left.

I stayed in this hotel for a couple of nights en route to the south of France. The room was fairly small but spotlessly clean and the bathroom was large. The hotel is quiet and has a good location on the sea front, there is also a canal at the side of the hotel. The railway station for Barcelona or Tarragona is about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. Would recommend as a good quality no frills hotel.

  • Liked — Location.
  • Disliked — Bar and lounge area a bit on the small side.
