Close to a bustling main road and 100m to the hubbub of the resort's shops, restaurants and bars. Beach is 300m away (via a subway under the main road and coastal railway).

The aparthotel" the holiday centre in calella " was on a very busy main road, it was noisy and we had to cross a railway line to get to the beach.

It was very basic, the brochure said 3 stars but more 2. The resort was ok, but the bowling alley opposite the hotel was noisy. The entertainment at the hotel wasn't very good.

Wouldnt come here again.

We stayed a week at the Holiday Centre in Calella in Oct 2004 on a half board basis. The hotel is not on the beach, but on a busy road - the main road between Barcelona and Genona.

The room we were given was on this road and the bedrooms faced a bowling alley that only closed at 2am. We got very little sleep as a result and we not allocated another room even after complaining. The rooms were not cleaned during our entire stay and guests were expected to throw out any rubbish themselves in the bins located outside. The sheets were never changed, towels were changed twice.

Food was ok, very greasy and not a lot of variety.

There was no entertainment offered.

We visited the 'gym' in the hotel, but only the exercise bike worked.

Our hotel room was excellent, we had a good sized balcony overlooking the pool and a smaller balcony in the bedroom over the crazy golf area.

The staff were a very good help as we had to come home early due to illness, the holiday rep was useless.

The location is 5 mins from beach, you have to cross a very busy main road but this is no problem as there are subways everywhere.

The rooms were clean and tidy, there wasn't a great deal of entertainment.

We would go back to this hotel again.

We were located in a one-bed apartment facing swimming pool on arrival. The apartment was clean, but it is considerably smaller than average (I guess it is less then 300 square feet in total). The bedroom is without window. It is extremely hot during July. We were lucky since we managed to change an apartment on the 2nd day.

The hotel is generally clean. It has friendly staff and environment. It is close to beach, shops, restaurants and amusements.

Spent a week in Calella from the 3rd July 04.The hotel was very basic,but clean.There are lifts,these are extremely small.Two adults and two suitcases are squashed in them (still your not holidaying in the lifts!)We had a room with balcony above the swimming pool,which could be very noisy.The buffet food was good, but by Friday we ate out as we became bored with the selection. Two weeks of it would be too much.The pool also is not very big,but the pool area is ok to sit with nice cold drinks.The entertainment such as it was,is aimed at the children.Even for the children it was very boring as the very young entertainment staff were obviosly very bored with it themselves.

Have just returned home from a great week in Calella. The weather was perfect and the resort was lovely especially if you like shopping!!

The hotel was clean and tidy, we stayed half board and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food (buffet) every day - even the kids enjoyed it!! (apart from the miserable restaurant manager who we nicknames "happiness"!!) The drinks in the hotel are quite pricey so we tended to buy drinks from a small shop around the corner. The only down side to the hotel was the lack of entertainment - pretty basic - ok for small children but my 15 and 11 yr olds weren't impressed!

Its quite a busy resort so I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for peace and quiet, although it wasn't overly noisy when we were there.

We booked a few excursions via our holiday rep to Waterworld (a huge water park about an hour away) and Marineland (with dolphin, parrot and sealion shows) but to be honest I think if we'd known before that there was a free to these anyway, we probably would have made our own way which might have been a bit quicker and cheaper. But overall the trips were good - especially Waterworld! It's like Oakwood only all the rides are waterslides!! Great for big kids too!!!!
