Used as a base for Ironman Barcelona so will base the review for others looking for a place to stay while competing. It really is a perfect hotel for this event, couple of minutes walk to registration and about ten minutes walk to the start line. You are allowed to take bikes

Rated a 3* hotel but definitely much better than that. We stayed in the newly developed wing and the bedroom was great. Very good spread of food at buffet breakfast and dinner which we had one night. Staff were all excellent. Good location. Absolutely no negatives!

Situated only a short walk from the shops, bars and beach. Our room was spacious enough for us, clean and comfortable with a bath/shower, plenty of cupboard space for our clothes and also tea making facilities. The balconies are really very nice and ours overlooked the small

Hi, I remember also being confused, in the end I think I just booked standard. We were given a very nice room, however, don't know if it was an upgrade.

It is difficult to tell but it sounds like a standard room. I splashed out on a top floor Blue Dreams room with Jacuzzi, and a large balcony with loungers. As it was on a corner of the building it had windows facing in two directions with views of the sea, beach, lighthouse and some streets. It was expensive, however, but was a beautiful room , newly renovated in a modern style, very spacious and airy. My friend booked a standard room on a lower floor and this was perfectly fine too, with a small balcony. There was, however, no comparison with the room I had.

The basic rooms are same as the premium rooms and can be on the various floors, the only difference is that you don't get sea view ( you can get street view, or other hotel view). We went for premium last year but if Blue Dreams were available we wouldn't hesitate to change.

When I was there I went half board and the food was excellent. During the lunchtime period we ate at the poolside bar which was quite reasonable with a good choice of food. I did not see all inclusive at this hotel.

You are better off getting a bus from Girona to calella it will drop you off outside the hotel, no need to go to Barcalona. If you do end up going to Barcalona then there is a public bus service to calella or you can get the train from Barca to calella then a taxi or jump on the little road train that stops opposite the hotel. Hope this helps
