“Excellent stay at Hotel Volga”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Can not say enough good things about this hotel. We stayed here in May 2014 as part of a group of 35 choral singers attending the International Choral Festival in Calella. The hotel is spotless, food is AMAZING (would highly recommend the half board option), staff very friendly.
Pool is small but absolutely adequate. Seating around the pool is lovely. And best of all they have a beach club with the most amazingly friendly staff and the food and cocktails are fab! All in all a great weekend in Calella.

Room Tip: Choose pool side room with sea views. The higher you go the better the view!!

On my last 3 visits to Calella Ive stayed in the sister hotel to the Volga,The Kaktus Playa,
I asked for a room with a sea view,which I got, but it wasnt what I had expected, which was a room with a balcony. The room had no balcony and over looked the back street, However the sea view was from the bathroom!!! Unfortunatley there were 2 parties of unsupervised school children, who did think of the other users of the hotel. by running wild
The food left something to be desired,whilst it was edible it was not up to the standard of the Kaktus Playa, who have themed dining nights. The entertaining was not up to much except for one night when they had a flamenco night this was outstanding. The staff were efficient, how ever the star member was Jose, the barman. who had to put up with abuses from the arrogant school children. which he just took in his stride. Hes was always helpful and very efficent at his job. A five star employee

Spent Christmas and New year at the Volga plus Callela on a coach trip, could not fault the hotel the staff were brilliant could not do enough for you. The food was very good with plenty of choice for every taste. The entertainment was also very good something daytime and evening every day prices for drinks were reasonable and the service was very good. The shops around the hotel were great The room we had was very clean the cleaners came in every day we had a view of the beach (the other side of the railway line) and the weather was quite warm. Plenty of places to visit close by We have not been away from home at Christmas before but after this experience we will definitely be doing it again Thanks very much to all the staff and management at the Volga we will be back.

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking the pool sunshine all day

For a change I spent Christmas in Spain at the Hotel Volga in Callela. The holiday was a coach/stay holiday organised via Leger Holidays which involved 2 days travel each way that I found to be a bit arduous. The overnight stay in Paris was greatly cut short by bad weather in Dover so the 2nd days journey was a bit rushed in order to make up time, however, congratulations to our 2 drivers - Kenny & Ivo - for making up time. Also, well done for the conversion of the Coach lounge area into Santa's Grotto (see attached).

The Hotel was nice, clean and the food excellent. Staff were very helpful and the entertainment team did an excellent job. The bar prices were very good for an Hotel and with Golden Hour from 2 - 6 was good value for money. Nearly every one there was off coach holidays and by the large number of repeat stayers I can only assume the good standards have been maintained for a long while. The local Station was 5 minutes walk away and a good service (trains actually ran on Christmas day !!!! ) in either direction along the coast at reasonable prices. The noise of trains did not really cause disturbance to people I spoke to.

Must admit though my rooms balcony was technically a balcony but in reality it was a shelf with railings.(See attached). The poolside area was quite small for the number of rooms and, although it didn't matter at the time of my stay I could imagine quite a scramble in summer.

It would be hard to judge Callela as it was out of season but I couldn't describe it as "bustling" and the number of British bars was limited. Very much a Spanish holiday resort.

As an overall assessment I would say that if you like coach style holidays and want to go away for Christmas with good accommodation then this holiday is right up your street.

Room Tip: Get one on the Pool side - sun in the morning.

Great hotel staff are fantastic. Very good place to go for Christmas or new year. Food is great, the rooms are dated but still feel fresh. Hotel is undergoing renovation and will hopefully earn a deserved 4 star rating. The staff work very hard for this. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in calella.
