“Friendly, average hotel more 2 star than 3, food poor even for non fuss-pots!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2010

We stayed in the Bon Repos, Calella for a week, all inclusive. Our room was on the first floor and fairly basic, as expected, with an average sized bathroom. The room was painted white with a balcony facing the street. The room was clean. There was only one bedside table between the two of us. The bathroom had an old white suite in it which was a bit marked but perfectly clean. We had no problems with water pressure or temperature. Overall the room was a little tired but perfectly accceptable. No extras like hairdryer...

The communal areas were quite nice, the pool is fairly small but no problems with sun loungers or broken tiles. The indoor areas were ok with seats and couches. Not a lot in the way of activities.

The staff were helpful and friendly throughout the hotel.

The restaurant was more of a canteen. The furniture etc was fine but the food was very poor. Its a help yourself buffet, burgers and hotdogs everyday (I ended up surviving only on hotdogs). Otherwise limited salad which was not grade 1 quality, sometimes a pasta choice (lasagne filled with what appeared to be corned beef). The meat was horrible where I tried it and looked horrible where I didn't dare. For dessert evrey night only small pots of ice cream, melon or a kind of angel delight type substance. I do not want to do this hotel a disservice but the food really was very poor and we had read previous reviews and thought we would be ok as we are not at all fussy eaters. When you end up in MacDonalds because the quality of the meat is better you have to wonder! No waiter service for drinks you have to go to the bar.

We found the hotel quite noisy very early in the morning, if you don't like any sort of lie in you will be fine but if you do you may come home more tired than when you left! And there are no do not disturb signs!

That said, the holiday was cheap, and apart from the food everything was fine and as expected.

my husband and i both in our mid fifties.we travel a lot and have stayed in all sorts of hotels.booked this hotel last minute for five nights.the area was nice with a nice beach and old town area;which was nice to walk around in the evening.very much geared to the german tourists.never really found a great stand out resteraunt.the hotel was ok .small rooms,cleaned every day .pool area a bit tatty ,broken sunbeds and in very short supply.we were doing bed and breakfast most mornings we just went down for toast and tea and brought it backto our room,as the dinning room was very hot and stuffy and very busy no cutlery or clean tables to sit at.papas bar over the road was a nice bar to sit outside for a couple of drinks on your way back from town or the beach.we did nt stay around the hotel around the hotel much so cant comment on entertainment or the bar .it was ok as a base but dont expect to much with the food.o and be warned there is a nudist section at the far end of the beach .which was not sighposted.we stumbled across it on a walk.a bit of an eye opener.and a giggle

Hotel staff were very polite & friendly. Hotel was clean & pleasant. Pool area was fine. Room was clean, spacious & well kept. BUT food was awful. Truly awful! Vile meat & apples & pears for dessert! I normally love continental breakfast of nice crusty bread with cheese & ham. Bread rolls were cheap sweet tasting bread & really don't know what the meat was. If this hotel got a grip with it's food it would have been a very pleasant stay. Would recommend if you don't eat the food.

Just got back from hotel, was a bit worried after reading reviews but i can asure that the hotel is a pleaseant place to stay..The room are quite small but they r clean and the cleaners do a fab job. To be honest when your away who wants to sit in their room.
I was self catering so i can comment on their main meals but we did have snacks there and the kids loved it.
The pool is nice and clean, the staff are very friendly and welcoming.
The location was nice, not far from beach and town and they have a good train service from the station into barcerlona, which is great for a day out.
would defin recommend this hotel.

When i first booked this holiday i had a look at these reviews and they had me terrifed to go my holiday. I was starting to regret booking it, luckly when we arrived we found that the hotel was lovely and clean, rooms and batheroom cleaned everyday and fresh towels when needed. As for the food there is nothing wrong with it unless you are expecting five star quality!! As for the reviews about people running about and being noisey obvisouly its a family hotel. I would return to this hotel if i was ever returning to Calella.

We recently travelled to the Hotel Bon Repos in Calella with Ferris coach holidays. The trip itself was fantastic with the hostess being very friendly throughout the journey. On arrival at the hotel it was clear to see the hotel was very clean and well maintained. We arrived at 9:30am and were told that we couldn't have the key to the room until 2pm. This wasn't really a problem as we were pool side anyway and the weather was superb. When we were given the credit card style room key, we went to the room to discover a very clean room which was spacious and again well looked after. The swimming pool was cleaned every morning and night and the pool side area was immaculate. 2 jaqusi's, a baby pool and a huge main pool made the stay very enjoyable. The only MAJOR problem we had was the food that eventually DESTROYED our 10 day break. My 4 year old son actually contracted FOOD poisoning through poultry, which was diagnosed by our family GP when we arrived home., and the only chicken he ate whilst on holiday was the hotel chicken burgers that were available every day. You had no choice but to eat the same garbage every night and on the wednesday evening my son was rushed to calella hospital with sickness diaorhea, and a temperature of 38.9 degrees which was dangerously high. The doctor at the hospital immediately pointed out that it could be food poisonning but it was more likely to be a bacterial infection picked up through the pool. On arrival home a stool sample proved that it was food poisonning which has left my son poorly for 2 weeks. Would i stay at the hotel again? YES but there is no chance in hell i would allow my family or anyone else to eat at that hotel.
