I arrived at the Calipolis with mixed feelings and expectations based on the Tripadvisor reviews. The exterior of the hotel is in stark contrast with its interior design: with my room on the top floor and a stunning view of the sea and the well-groomed promenade, my mixed feelings soon disappeared. The neatly furnished and decorated room was not huge but to make up for this, the bathroom was rather spacious and extremely well stocked with toiletries. Do not expect tea and coffee making facilities though. AC was also OK although not really indispensable in mid-June. WIFI worked well in the room, though the card I bought was for one go, no log on, log off possibilities. The only computer in the hall would have been cheaper but is was always booked. The breakfast room opened at 8 sharp, no matter how many guests queued in front of the doors. Breakfast was excellent, good variety of cooked and cold dishes. Breakfast could go for a five-star facility. The swimming pool was a joke, only good for decoration for poolside parties. The beaches across the road, however, were close. Deckchairs were quite expensive compared to other similar beaches a bit further south the coast, but of course you can always choose lo lie in the sand free of charge. All in all, Calipolis was a pleasant surprise after the negative reviews I had read. I have to admit though that colleagues said that I was lucky enough to get one of the best rooms on the top floor. As a conference participant I got a special rate of €130 for B&B which I felt was reasonable for the location of the hotel and my room. Sitges, except for one minor but not disturbing shortcoming, is a wonderful place. The beachfront is lined with pleasant restaurants of which Santa Maria is a must. If you take a flight home from Barcelona, choose the bus rather than the train to the airport.
