Omg this hotel far exceeded my expectation. I just left today. Arrived for a 4 day stay and extended once arrival for an extra 3 days. Only down fall beds are a little hard. But other than that. Great great great staff, great atmosphere, great drinks by pool, roof top pool amazing, and great location. Will return again one day.

8/10 Very good

God but could be better for the price.
This is a modern hotel towards the end of town and so not near the shops and restaurants of Calella's centre. The plus: Big pool and a jacuzzi, big comfy bed, large room (we had chosen the contemporary ones rather than the mediterranean ones) and balcony, good mojitos. The minus: corridors not very clean, mentions 3 pools but only 1 is free, you have to pay to get to the 2 others, no pool towels provided, all this makes it quite pricey in the end. Finaly, no forthcoming info given on the spa or the beach club ( we realised they had a beach area 3 days into our stay).
