Have stayed at this hotel a number of times, a couple of times with my 3 children. My children love it here. Food is excellent. Hotel is very quiet at night and staff are extremely helpfull. Most of them speak english. The hotel is in a good location for all amenites. 2 minute walk to beach and five minute walk to shops.Would recommend this hotel to anyone. First class. Absolutely nothing.
Clean and comfortable The noise during the night kept me awake. Request a room that is not over looking the pool and this should solve the noise problem.
The hotel staff were friendly and helpfull and nothing was a any trouble for them.Great food,
The Hotel was clean, the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful and it was in a good location to beach, shops and restaurants. Nothing.
The hotel is Ok for the money it costed, the rooms are good and clean, the receptionists speak English, it is well-located - near the beach - only a couple of minutes, and near to the main street. The hotel is quite old, the rooms are renovated but the "open spaces" are visibly old. The only people in the hotel who speak English are the receptionists - all the other staff cannot or doesn't want to speak English and it is very difficult even to ask for a glass of water. The resort is very noisy - it is perfect for people who are using their vacation for going to discos but definitely good sleep is not something to be expected. The walls in the hotel are also very thin and you could hear your room-neighbours as if they were in your own room. However, these problems are typical for all the hotels in the resort. Therefore, this one is a good choice compared to the others.
The reception desk was very friendly and helpful Bar personnel was not always available and not always very friendly
Location Windows not doubled glazed so if you are on the 2nd floor as we were, you get to hear the traffic passing, the two coach loads of teenagers waiting for their bus at 7am in the morning and the engines of the coaches running and the draught that came through the window frame in the evening !!
Warm, clean, central location Hotel clean, but somewhat tired. Needs refurbishment to justify very high prices.
It is near to the beach. Food variety is good.Is fresh. The wall is so thin, You can hear everything from next room.You can sleep when your neighbor is going to sleep. . I think if guests with family are located at one floor or in one direction, to separate with guests with no family, it will solve the problem.
Very nice staff .Our objective was visiting Barcelona so we did not have much time to really enjoy our room. They had a great breakfast. A very quiet place, full of old couples and some children family! There were some small ants in the room but they were but they were inoffensive and even charming once you get used to them!!
Excellent staff. Clean, calm and quiet. Pleasant buffet. Nice airy stairscases. Pleasant bar and pool areas. Children loved the glass lifts.
The hotel staff were very friendly and extremely professional ladies and they were very accommodating to our needs and requirements. We had a fantastic stay. Most of the hotel has had a recent refurb and it looks fresh and modern The location is fantastic with amazing sea views, the train stn straight across the road taking you to either Blanes or Barcelona, good selection for breakfast and the hotel has a general feel good factor about it! A great holiday all round. No
The sea view
closeness to beach
A good selection at Breakfast, and able to obtain Breakfast at 7am on last day. None
Everything was good, nice place, easy to find.
Location was perfect for our needs- very near the station - with sea views.Good choice of drinks at the bar.Reception staff helpful, and changed our room very quickly on arrival. Breakfast was always the same. Chemical smells from cleaning materials. Gym not as advertised, small pool which would be packed in the middle of summer.
Very(!) friendly staff + awesome buffet
The hotel is very close to the beach and to the train station . The rooms are nice and clean . The staff was very friendly when we arrived. The juice of fruits is not natural . The walls are very thiny and there is no privacy, I could heard all the noise from the other rooms.
The check-out The environment on this hotel is "teenager on all include holidays", consequently the staff treat all the customers as teenagers (independent of their age). The staff is very rude, ask pre-payment and confiscates the guest's passports during the stay. The hotel should put kindergarden employees on the corridors all nigh to take care of the drunk teenager and making possible for the other guests to sleep.
Good and helpful personnel at the reception, Short period for breakfasts and dinner comparing with number of people staying in it
There are very much tumultuous Britisch people in the hotel. There was lots of noise, also during the night
Nothing,the rooms were very dirty, and the staff was very unpolite. Very noisy, the food was bad and beds was very hard uncomfrtable and very simple standard.
nothing the hotel was very poor
We had stayed at this hotel before and although there are a lot of students staying the hotel is great value for money, the staff are all helpful and friendly and the hotel is in a great location.
The hotel was great value for money, the staff were helpful and the room clean and comfortable. We arrived very late after dinner had finished and were offered snacks inn the dining room which we really appreciated, no other hotel in this area has done that when we arrived late.
Found it great for familys. Staff helpful and good location for beach and shops and restaurants. Food could have been better
The staff was very carefull and prestable. Some room improvements were needed. There were some old equipments.
I liked the time we had away from your hotel, this is not a family hotel its for noisy louts and for people who do not remotely care where they stay. the food is terrible and the staff rude.
The hotel was classed as 4 star, I dont know who gave it this rating as it would be at best a poor 3 star. The dining room service was terrible, people had to queue up for a cup of tea. The quality of the food was comparble to that of prison food. There was poor sound-proofing between rooms and you could here those next door coughing, talking etc
-very friendly staff (reception and too restaurant); -clean and nice room with balcon; -bathroom with shampoo+gel+tooth brush; -very and good food; -open swimming pool in Januar (indoor); - nice place (not directly on beach - 350m, but nice - pinies etc)
Good size rooms which were very clean & comfortable. I loved the location of the hotel - a 10 minute walk down to the many shops and restaurants. The beaches are absolutely beautiful again a 10 minute walk from hotel. We did not eat much in the hotel but I was impressed by the high quality of the food and variety in the evening. The hotel staff could do with attending a customer service course! The place was run to suit the staff and not the guests with too many unneccessary rules and regulations! The staff are very rude and tended to bark orders to the guests instead of politely asking. I felt uncomfortable and embarrassed on a few occassions.
That the hotel was renovated recently, that the reception staff was friendly and helpful, that Callela had a quiet and pleasant atmosphere and that it was near Barcelona. That the drinks for the all inclusive menu weren't the real thing (the Coke wasn't real Coke), that the dining room could be improved, same with the food and that the sunbeds near the hotel's beach bar weren't free. Also, the cleaning staff from the upper levels were rather slow, sometimes we didn't have our room clean until 4 o'clock in the afternoon.
Food was very good.
The hotel staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help. the quality and variety of food in the restaurant was excellent. Hotel was very impressive with its cleanliness and facilities. It you are thinking of booking this hotel please do so you won't be disappointed Nothing negative can be said of this hotel
we loved the the cleanliness and the spacious rooms. staff were friendly and helpful, food was fresh and plentiful - would go back again. didn't like the noise from the bar, the cigarette smoke drifting up to our room from outside the bar every night, nor the ash and cigarette ends which ended up on our balcony from the rooms above. some of the guests could be a bit rowdy but we didn't frequent the bar so had no problems.
1. Crowd for breakfast, 2.Too noise of young neighbours early in the morning 3. Uniform and plain food (mess commons) for breakfast
On arrival we were told we were at the wrong hotel, when I showed my booking form the then said tHEY had overbooked and we had to be moved to a diffrent resort. I refused to move resorts and was eventually given a small box room that was meant to sleep 2. I will not book through your company again or this hotel as my holiday was ruined due to staff attitude and being let down by my booking. AS I have said above, and the entertainment consisted of a spanish old age pensioner disco.
Good price, swimming pool is nice. The buffet was OK. Wi-fi was ver intermitent and only available on the lobby.
It was a short walk to beach and shops.The rooms were clean and of good size.good size pool and plenty of sunbeds.plenty of places to sit and have a drink.
For the price you can't go wrong. The rooms were fine, maid service excellent, evening entertainment was really good. Easy access via Renfe train from Barcelona changing at Sants Estacio for the airport. Only cost £7 - £8 return. Trains ever 20 mins or so. The gammon was the best I have ever tasted and there was always 5 or 6 choices for hot evening meal as well as salads. The staff were great and the reception staff especially helpful, Food was fine but they could have put fried eggs on every morning and we didn't have cooked tomatoes once. The bacon was also too fatty so we didn't have cooked breakfasts. There were plenty of alternatives though so we did have plenty to eat. Also this is the first hotel where we were given a half hour slot for evening meal, we were told to go in at 7.30 to 8.00 pm although obviously could stay as long as you wanted and eat as much as you want!
stuff was very nice and helpful in room there wasn't any glasses and fridge also no hair dryer
indoor pool was useful as the outdoor pool was too busy due to the amount of young teenagers there ( summer season ) bathroom could have done with re-grouting ( small point but it made it look unclean )
the calmness the elevators
Nice location. Close to the beach. Busy, even slightly out of season. Breakfast was good value, at least some hot food on offer which is not common. Parking is a nightmare. It is a lottery. Do not park in the garage up the street as the space to get out is almost impossible and the wall is covered in rubber protection because even in a Smart car you would probably drive up against the wall.
easy access to beach and shops etc
Everything was conveniently located. The buffet was the best Ive ever had. I usually keep away from inclusive stuff because im never satisfied. I had low expectations with breakfast and was very impressed. Staff was fun and helpful. No air conditioning when wanted. Mostly the window did the job but there was a time a wanted a/c and I was told that I would only get hot air.
The buffet breakfast had an excellent variety.
peace, food, pool
I've participated to a triathlon Ironman in Calella and for this event, this hotel has especially served a breakfast for competitors at 5:00 am. It's a service very appreciated.
The staff spoke Spanish, English and German. Good breakfast (see minus). Silent area close to beach and town center. The price did not include use of safety-box, internet or refrigiator. For this you have to pay extra and that is irritating since it is not the normal situation at hotels at similar standard. On top of this the secured parking cost more than average. To have a lactose and gluten free breakfast (essential to one of us) minimized your choices.
Close to beach, town and main road.
Excellent location: close to the beach and the center of town, not far from Barcelona (about 40-50 km) with good transport connection. There were no problems with parking. Hotel staff is very frendly. Restaurant is excellent. Good room & hotel facilities. It's a bit noisy from the nearest railway.
Excellent multi language staff, good restaurant, convenient placement, good price for staying Not very good noise proof so sometimes it's noisy in the room because of neighbors
access to town within walking distance; breakfast buffet was excellent; balcony holiday time so the beach town was loud as well as noise from the train; no ice; front desk does charge percentage for money exchange
The choice of breakfast was good and the staff were very friendly and helpfull Having to check out!
It was next to the railway station so you could get out to Barcelona very easily. almost all of the staff could speak Dutch, it was not an spanish experience. It looked like we were still in our home town. Terrible! Futhermore it was way to expensive for what you get. Also Calella is not a Spanish style, but rather some kind of theme park with the theme: being turistic.
The cleanliness and the view of the beach from our balcony Nothing
I was competing in the Half Challenge Barcelona and this is probably the closest hotel to transition. The hotel even put on an early breakfast at 5am for competitors. The hotel is next to the train station, which makes for early wake ups if not prepared although this wasn't a problem for me.
That was holiday.
The generous spirit of hotel staff and local people in aiding my stay that I didn't book a longer stay
Although the hotel is situated near the railway station this is by no means a negative point, the trains are quiet and the close proximity to the station means close proximity to the beach. The staff very friendly, the hotel clean and the town and bars close enough to enjoy without encrotching into the hotel itself.
hard working staff keep this place spotless.a nice mix of nationalities stay here.apatments equipped with an excellent ,fridge,toaster,hobbs and nice air con
clean good value for money small rooms mostly german people in hotel small pool
The swimmingpool was ok. They say they clean room every day. If changing towells is cleaning than its ok. I cleaned the floor myself. In a hotel like this you get sand from the beach every day.
Enough beds at swimming pool. Friendly personnel. Airco only works when balcony door locked, such that we couldn't stay on the balcony while our kids were sleeping. Wifi available only near the door (we had a room at the edge of the hotel).
The late and not complete cleaning of the rooms and the rare cleaning of the swimming pool.
Great location, walking distance to the beach. Very comfortable and great for kids. The affiliated parking garage is extremely narrow - even for European standards.
Good sized room with air conditioning and very high standard of cleanliness Nothing
location nicely in the middle of calella. sound insulation is 'non-existent' - Lady GaGa isn't my favorites, especially after midnight (some younger people going clubbing).
It is in a quiet street, but close to the beach and to all other amenities.
The staff was extremely helpful and we had a very enjoyable stay
no refrigerator in the room
I thought the entertainment staff were excellent We could not get out the front of the hotel after some of the staff left. It was the end of the season but it was rediculous to expect people to go the long way round, along a not well lit street.
Have been many times always very clean & friendly staff, ideal for families Beds too hard
secondtime at hotel liked everything that was going on
This hotel offers a perfect combination of swimming pools and beach, a small zoo and a playground, and entertainment in the evenings, just ideal for children. The restaurant offers great buffets every day (with over 100 different dishes). There was no small refrigerator in the room and we had to ask for new soaps from the personnel, since they were not left after room cleaning. We are unaware if it is customary to leave tips at hotels in Spain. We did not experience it from others. At restaurants, it is expected that a tip of about 10% the value of what was consumed is left.
The seaview from the balcony and nothing else! Oh yes, the girl at the reception had beautiful blue eyes. That's all we liked during our stay at this hotel. Food is awful, has no taste, only smells bad aswel as the hallway. Don't eat at the hotel! When you step out of the elevator and walk to your room, you feel sick. I can still remember the smell. Room is dusty, no wi-fi in hotel, zoo in front of the hotel is a very good idea but the animals seem neglected - I am not sure weather mice are meant to be there with the peacock? I don't understand why they have an outside elevator when its glass is so dirty, do they ever wash it? This is the worst hotel I've ever been to. It was cheap, about 70 Euros/ 1 night but I would never do it again! There should be an "give me my money back" option!
Great hotel, 3rd visit and each time have thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff really friendly, rooms & hotel really clean. Lots of pools for the kids and really close to the beach. My only very minor gripe is that the sunbeds were a little uncomfortable. There were some more comfortable ones, but these usually had towels on them before breakfast!!
Excellent staff, meals and entertainment and air-con in room plus many TV channels Toilet space minimul, crammed between wall and bath.
It was my best holidays ever. Thanks
the friendlyness of all staff reception through to domestic .comfort in reception and dining room choice of food although some days were better than others.
The hotel is located near the beach and more or less near the railway station. There were a lot of various food in the restaurant. The drinks for the dinner are too expensive. E. g. A cup of tea from the teabag - 1.5 EUR, 0.5 l of Coca-Cola - 2 EUR. The walls are too thin, so I could hear the elevator's movement next to my room.
Breakfast was amazing. Hotel is fresh & clean. Breakfast ends at 10 AM, a little early. Room was above children's play pen so very noisy.
Nice hotel in a nice location, close to the train station. Rooms are modern and very clean. Walls are rather thin, noise from rooms next door easily penetrate through the wall and can disturb you. Breakfast not available before 7:45, so no breakfast if you're on business and need to leave early.
We like to seat on the balkony. The location was very good. The coffee in the mornning. The hotel demand check out very early.
staff and food noise between rooms
Close to the beach, friendly staff, clean room, nice restaurant near by. Family room is the same with standart room just added extra bed but price increased on 50%. We hade some problem with noise nights becouse the next door guests were very "energetic" with songs, drinks etc. It means there is a not good isolation between rooms.
Pretty good hotel if you have no high requirements to the size of the room for fur people. Reastaurant is very good.
very good hotel situated next to shop area and at a 3 minutes walk to the beach. excellent food(a lot of sea fruits) and staff. the dining area was a little too crowded
It is not high only 4 floors only euro sports and cnn in english
The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel was kept very clean except the dining room. It was difficult to find. There are building works next door. The rooms are small and only suitable for short stays. The Spa should be free? Parking is extortionate and should be free, not many free spaces to park near the hotel. The dining room was the ony part that let the hotel down, the floor was very dirty, The food was poor and unappetising.
The hotel was extremely clean, very friendly, helpful staff and no more than two minutes from the beach. They allow dogs. We had a dog in the rooms either side of ours, which was a little annoying as one would always set the other off!
Value for money, friendly. Accepted dog. Typical hotel for package tours
The swimming pool and spa pool were very good and were a welcome break after an eight hour drive. The buffet breakfast was very good. Not the best of locations.
very good breakfasts
Quiet place, friendly stuff, good food, good fitness and SPA, not a lot of people.
the food was tasty, and the varaetty was great. the place of the hotel is ideal for relaxation, close to the center yet quite.
Nice rooms, very nice food and great staff. The tyrkish bath in spa area was filled with fungus.
It is calm and you have a good rest
helpful staff.. good selection of food at meal times.. very good spa noisey at night when people where returning to room this is due to the tiled corridors... no tea making kit in rooms.... building site next door..
Have been to this hotel many times and always get such a warm welcome, especially from the Dining Room staff. They are also very much aware of special diets and are willing to provide what is required. Not enough sunbeds and lack of control of rowdiness around the pool.
Very good breakfast. Close the the beach, parking was kind hard
Excellent value for money
food was great
The staff were very nice and helpfull. The room was very clean. Did not like the food. We went to restaurant early for meal and there was a queue. We went later on to try it out and the staff were clearly not happy as they were setting up for the next service. Even had to wait in a queue to make toast/
Good breakfast, manager of hotel is very polite, good position. no parking place, arrogant man on reception, crashed car behind the hotel
The room and common space are very good and clean. The food is excellent. Small pool. Expensive hotel private parking (but it was not big issue to find free parking 50-100 meters from hotel), safe cost 4 additional Euros per day.
Great location! Very small pool, bad room cleaning.
Having been before, we were disappointed at the changes in the hotel, ie, the food was always cold and not very appetising. The all inclusive card which used to allow 2 drinks per person per day at the beach bar, has now been reduced to just 1 drink per person per day. Lack of activities and evening entertainment. A very large group of teenage boys who were on a rugby tour, but were staying in the hotel between matches, comandiered the swimming pool and made it unpleasant for toddlers and smaller children
friendly staff, good selection on buffet and very proffessional would be nice to have a bigger pool area
I would not recommend to stay in this hotel. Overall, this is 3* hotel, not 4*. Staff was really unfriendly.. Breakfast food was poor quality (compared to other 4* and 3* hotels in Spain). In the morning it was no electricity and needed to wait some 20 minutes until it was back.. (their check-out time 10:00).. cleaning lady came 10:00 and was unhappy to see us still packing bags although it's their fault that we late (it was not electricity for some time in the morning)... Moreover, they keep my id for staying time. this is illegal. I realized just when checking out... What if police stop me and ask my id in the city? (Probably they would take me to the police station to check my identity....) don't stay in this hotel if you can!!!
Rooms, location, roof top sun terrace Food was not up to UK 4star standards more like 3 Star
Breakfast was of very bad quality and choice was poor (vegetables were only of two types - tomatoes and green salad leaves, both were permanently not fresh, taste of juice reminded some chemicals dissolved in water, 2 weeks in a raw you could have only eggs "boiled" in oil..)
Good location, meals are tasty and there is plenty of different sorts food to choose from. Pricing/value for money excellent! Noise from the restaurant (in case your room is close to it). Noise stops when the restautant is closed late in the evening :)
Excellent value for money on the all inclusive package. The hotel is in a fantastic location overlooking the sea.The local train service is only about 300yds along the beach with a brilliant service every 30 mins to explore other towns up and down the coast.
very poor food, poor quality and always cold.
Close to the sea and the train station, easy to get to Barcelona. Good rooms. Great value for the money. The reception staff is really unprofessional. They messed up my booking, and when I got to the hotel ( at 03:30) tired and sleepy after a long flight, instead of apologizing for the error they have made, the reception personal was very very rude and extremely offensive. Even through the whole vocation the personal at the reception was not trying to help - I've got the idea is that the only thing they want to archive is to get rid of you, so you won't bother them.....
The food, the rooftop swimming pool, the location.
Good location and a nice quiet area.
The H Top Pineda Palace has gone down hill a little, we have stayed at this hotel 3 times New rules and the fact the pool bar was not open
Nothing The balcony was viewed on all sides and looked as if it would fall down if you stood on it.there was no furniture on balcony and it was extremely noisy.
Yes.The hotel location prohibited the trasfer vehicles.I had a half hour walk to and from the hotel,being partially disabled.I did not hhave the fare(8 Euros)for a cab.Also there wasn't any soap providedmair conditioning was charged as extra and the meals were double what you quoted in your booking confirmation.This hotel was not up to your usual standard.
Everything was perfect
Montaltmar is a very small, cosy and luxurious Hotel on the North East coast of Spain. It is truly worth a visit and especially if you are looking for a place to relax either alone or with a significant other. In room amenities were up to the standard of the best London hotels.
The service was wonderful throughout our stay there. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Location was great as well- near a small town and close to the beach.
