Hotel Mediterrani

Reviewed 29 July 2013

I have traveled all the catalan coast, and stayed in all kind of hotels. Mediterrani is one of my favorites. As many other reviewers mention, its location is amazing, in one of the most beautiful locations in the Costa Brava. I don't usually stay in a 2-star hotel. But, this one is definitely more like a 3-to-4 star. Service is great, rooms are very comfortable, and breakfast with a view is awesome. One of those great places that would still be a "hidden gem" if it wasn't for TripAdvisor.

We stayed in a terrace room , the view was amazing ! The room was newly refurbished very nicely. Good Air con. Could have done with some drawers and a fridge but for a 2 star hotel our expectations were exceeded. Staff were very helpful and mostly friendly. Very good breakfast with selection of cold meats , cheese , yogurts etc , yummy cakes ! No hot breakfast , so of you fancy egg on toast or a fry up you won't get. Bar was reasonable but if you want water there's a 'spar' Rhonda the hotel where a 2L bottle of water is .50 centimes instead of 3 euros at the bar! Normal I guess. All the restaurants / town are a very short walk. Beach was very crowded but very well behaved children and nice people. ( it was peak season!). Lovely weekend , great hotel will definitely go back.

This was a nice little hotel with smallish but modern rooms. We had a lovely terrace with amazing ocean view . Breakfast just ok. Wifi worked . I would stay here again and thought it was great value for money in a charming location close to good restaurants.Was so relieved to arrive in this lovely part of the Costa Brava after driving through the more developed beaches closer to Barcelona

I spent two nights at this boutique hotel last week and while the bay in front of the hotel was divine, although terribly crowded the hotel fell way short of divine. The hotel fails to make the most of its position ie overlooking a gorgeous cove and the Med beyond, by serving breakfast in a room with a great view and wonderful food but with windows firmly shut and plastic table cloths, albeit plain grey, giving an institutional ambiance. The room I was first shown had a window with a wall I could touch and when I was moved, I did have the balcony as confirmed on the booking.com confirmation, but it all overlooked a back street. I really would say to think twice before booking if you don't have a sea view room confirmed. There are plastic chairs in a row out the front of the hotel where you can have a coffee or a drink but no tapas.. I didn't eat in the hotel apart from breakfast. The bloke in reception was quite the magician in producing a beach chair to have for the day, it made up for Mrs Sourpus I had only seen up until then.. There were no suggestions as to fabulous spots to eat despite emailing in advance saying I had a cooking school and swell culinary destination hotel in Marrakech.

Room Tip: As mentioned already, I really wouldn't stay if I couldn't have a sea view room.

this hotel is hard to fault - it's central but quiet , modern but still retains some olde worlde charm , all the staff were helpful and friendly , the food at breakfast was great - lots of choice (and with a fantastic view of the sea and boats from the breakfast room ), cleanliness second to none , our room was spacious , the bathroom lovely with a great shower and the bed comfortable . our room was at the rear of the hotel so although the view was pleasant it wasn't as good as the stunning view from the front bedrooms .we loved the old pictures of the hotel that were on display in the public areas which date back as early as the 1920s !! i have two gripes which is why i have not graded the hotel as excellent ... firstly i felt that the amount the hotel charges for a room with seaview is far too much ( we were quoted an extra £200 for one week !!!) and the lack of parking . we either had to use the small public carpark ( 12 euros a day !) or drive around until we found a space on the roadside that was within a comfortable walking distance . maybe this is only a problem during the peak months but i thought it was worth a mention .
we did have a fabulous holiday and will definately return again to enjoy this wonderful resort !!!

Room Tip: be prepared to pay if you want a room with a sea view .

We really enjoyed staying here. The hotel is ideally located in Calella within a few steps to the beach and centre. Our room was very comfortable and clean with a great shower, although we didn't choose a sea view room, the outside space looked slightly larger than the balconies. The room was also in a quiet spot. We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. The breakfast selection was fantastic and although the drinks were from a machine, there was a good selection of different coffees and other drinks. We were sorry to leave the great views from the breakfast room on our last day. Calella is a very romantic spot. We hope to return and have a sea view room next time.

Having previously stayed at the Hotel La Torre we decided to try the Mediterrani having read that it had been refurbished. What a great choice ! Lovely helpful staff, spotless bright rooms and a WOW view. Not the largest rooms but well designed to make use of space. New and very smart bathroom with excellent shower. The public areas of the hotel would lead you to believe it was going to be all dark wood and dated decor. Just the opposite, our room was exactly like the one on the the photos with lovely modern styling. Unless you only wan't somewhere to lay your head, don't even consider rear rooms. The view from the front is totally mesmerising.
Breakfast was better than some 4 stars we've had with a very varied choice of items, but no hot choices.
The hotel has a small bar and offers snacks to order. A few tables outside are a nice spot for a light lunch.
The perfect location of this little hotel more than makes up for it's lack of 5 star facilities and the quality of the rooms together with friendliness of the staff make it a very good choice for couples.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms cost more but have a larger and more private balcony
