“Amaika is the Best Hotel in Costa Brava”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We just got back from all inclusive holiday in Amaika. First of all, if you’d like a quiet/quiet- ish place to stay in Costa Brava, Calella is the best option. Calella is old and not overpopulated town on the cost, nearest to Barcelona. It has a lot of shops and places to eat and by the way, much cheaper than in other towns. There are some nightclubs, but they are mostly faced on to the beach side, therefore you can hear only flamingo or Spanish music at eve. Our hotel was also close to the beach but we didn’t hear any disturbances from the young crowd in night time. Secondly, HTOP Amaika is immaculately clean and run with care. Although our bathroom needed a little facelift, but our cleaner Dolores used to scrub it every day thoroughly. The room was cleaned and towels were changed daily. All reception clerks were very polite and efficient, always pleased to help. Our special thank you to Agneshka and Cyrel, they help us mostly time. Food was very good, plenty to choose from, fish poultry, steaks were very tasty, plenty for veggie choses and deserts were hard to resist. All staff worked their utmost, because in between the main feeding hours, restaurant offers a snack service till 11-30pm, plus if you for some reason missing your launch you can order it as a pack lunch, which is very convenient for excursions. And one more benefit you can hop to other HTOP hotel for any meal if you want to be more adventurous. Pool is small but facing the sun. Sandy beach is basically next door, we preferred to go there and be closer to the nature. Otherwise you can easily use other HTOP hotel pools, which are not far. We would like to send our special thanks to Ignacio and Alberto at the restaurant; Christian, Kassia and Ionna at the bar. We are greatful to all hotel staff and management for their hard work which made our holiday enjoyable and special.

Room Tip: Room on the pool side is quieter and sunny, for adults and family with big kids I recommend to get...

Have just returned today after holiday at this hotel, we found it lovely staff nothing was to much trouble for them. Rooms cleaned everyday. Plenty of food to choose from so you never go hungry. We went A/I and found it so easy you had a card like a credit card and they just swiped it when you went for drinks. It was the height of the season but was not to busy. Would go there again as very close to beach.

Room Tip: Ask for room above level 3 as lovely views.

My husband and I stayed here last year for a weeks holiday. It is an old hotel and it isn't 4 star but it is ok for a weeks break. Calella is quite pretty around the square and is quite near to Barcelona so its a good base. The holiday was very cheap and we enjoyed the good weather.

Our room was ok the staff were pleasant thats the good bits.
The food you could not eat even for all-inclusive it was bad and the pool had 37 loungers and 7 of these were broke, it is a very small pool for the size of the hotel

Room Tip: if you want a quiet room go higher floors

Dear Mr Saunders, We are very sorry if your experience was not as pleasant as we would have like. It’s true that the swimming pool has a small size, but there is a beach closed to the hotel, just 1 minute walking. Best regards,

Most of the staff was really friendly. The location is very good as it is very close to the beach and market/shops/restaurants.
There were activities available within the hotel but you have to inquire as you are not told in detail about them.
Variety of food was available with different menu everyday. It would be helpful if halal food and vegetarian options are made available. And these should be separate and clearly labelled.
The room was nice and made up everyday. The towels were quite thin and most of them passed their life.
Bathroom was OK but clearly needed maintenance and upgrade which could be a bit frustrating.
Swimming pool was quite small as compared to the hotel.
Halal and vegetarian food options should be available.
Maintenance is definitely required in bathrooms.
Overall good experience.
It is a nice area but its a pebble beach (near the sea water) which can be frustrating so better take a good pair of appropriate footwear or find a close by sandy beach.

Room Tip: Higher floors are quieter.

I recently stayed for a girly birthday weekend & picked this hotel for it's fantastic location as it is close to the beach. The hotel staff were wonderful, informative & helpful. The choice of food at the hotel was immense & catered for everyone's taste, you would certainly never go hungry. The shops had a fantastic choice of leather goods, handbags, shoes etc. So don't pack too much & leave room for all the goodies. Also tapas bars & shops specialising in chorizos, Spainish meats, manchego cheeses to bring home. Yum yum
As the hotel pool was small, we took advantage of the adults only, huge rooftop sun lounge with jacuzzis & inclusive bar at sister Hotel Calella Palace 5 minutes away (which was included in our all inclusive deal) which has fantastic views of the new & old town of Calella & the lush green mountains. This was beautifully quiet & relaxing. The other 2 days we spent sun bathing on the beach on sun loungers costing €3 a day 10 til 7pm if you want! Next to the beach bar selling ice cold beer & extremely large Rojas ( €1.50) & very helpful waiters!
Visiting the old town is a must. It's beautiful square of olive trees & coffee shops & everything is in such close proximity.
We all had a wonderful holiday & said we would defiantly return. Overall the people were so friendly & there is something for everyone.
The only downside was it was noisy at night but to be honest we didn't hear anything because we had earplugs. Don't worry it's lovely.

I usually cruise or holiday with Virgin, I wanted a convenient hotel close to the beach and able to visit Barcelona. This hotel did not disappoint me, very clean and Staff very pleasant, yes the poolside was shaded and small but you know this from the hotels photos. You get what you pay for! Always found something to eat, will visit again to explore more.
