We recently spent 7 nights at the Aparthotel Miami Park. 2 Adults and 2 kids booked into their one bedroom apartment. We requested a high floor, facing the pool and got exactly that, on the 3rd floor facing the pool. The room suited our needs perfectly. The layout is a little unusual in that you enter through the door, the bathroom is immediately to the left or right and you then walk through the bedroom area to the sitting room with additional sofa bed. The bedroom is sectioned off from the sitting room by a concertina type door. Access to the balcony is through the sitting room which worried us slightly as the children were sleeping on the sofa beds and we were concerned slightly about them getting acess to the balcony. However this didn't cause a problem. The balcony doors lock on closing and can only be opened when the catch is depressed. Beware though because if you shut the door from outside on the balcony the lock will activate and you'll get stuck outside. We noticed that rooms on the road side of the hotel, have a seperate bedroom and access to the balcony through the sitting room and a seperate access through the bedroom.
We were self catering at the hotel and didn't sample the food, however we noticed plenty of guests were here on a half board basis. The hotel is well located for food shopping, turning left outside the hotel and walking for a couple of minutes brings you to a Bon Preu supermarket, walking a minute or two further brings you to a Spar Supermarket which is much cheaper for the majority of items. Turning right out of the hotel and walking up to the main road for about 5 minutes, brings you to a huge supermaket with everything you'll need in it.
The staff at the Miami Park, are polite and helpful. The bar is well priced approximately 3 Euros for a pint. And there are kids activities and other guest activities arranged through the hotel. During the day there are arranged guided walks, or kayaking and even a foam fest party on the beach (these are all on different days). In the afternoons there is a small kids club by the pool where the kids can get together for activities and drawing. Each night, except for Saturday there is a kids mini disco at 20.30 followed by another activity at 21.30. When we were there they had pool competitions, bingo and a clown night (this was very funny). Activities are also advertised for their sister hotel the Miami across the road and guests can also got there for evening entertainment.
Calella is a lovely little resort and the Aparthotel Miami Park is well located for guest to be able to explore this lovely little town. A couple of minutes walk from the hotel is the main shopping street, which is huge and shops stay open until 22.00. It's lovely to take a walk down here after dinner and see all the locals out and about chatting in the street. There is a newer, more tourist orientated area to Calella about 15 minutes walk away where a host of restaurants can be found.
The beach is a 5 minute walk from the hotel and because the train line seperates the town from the beach there are designated crossing areas. The beach is nice but is coarse shingle, which took a little getting used to. As people have pointed out the sea drops quickly so you're quite quickly out of your depth. This drop causes some slight undercurrents at the shoreline but my kids quite quickly realised that if they swam through the breakwater the sea was lovely and calm a little further out. In fact they loved the waves on the shore line and spent many hours playing by the waters edge.
We loved Calella for many reasons, for it's location (close to airport) for it's beaches, for it's cost effectivness and for it's ability to combine beautiful Catalan culture with a lovely tourist resort. We hope to come back to Calella soon and would also stay at the Aparthotel Miami Park.
