Hotel was clean,there was a good selection of food but was cold. Bar & reception staff very friendly, female restaurant staff did not acknowledge you in the morning and they were very rude and chatted away next to your table whilst you're eating NOT Professional at all!!
Maria(kids entertainer)was Fantasic!! Thanks Maria x ( i would recommend more activities in the day for the kids)
Down side to the area-not for the english, just rude, miserable spanish ( this end of Callela is only for the spanish, it was their local holiday resort) the other end was full of english, happy people.
Our transfer time changed from 0335 to 0435(as originally stated on our last day)- the hotel staff did not inform us (: so we were not happy with being at reception at 0300 then having to sit in the dark reception area with our children (3&14) waiting for 0410 to leave and walk to the bus top which was 2 streets away!!transfer was 1hr 30 mins and a tour of costa brava- we would not go back to costa brava.
