the whole experience in the continental was a living nightmare. we too were dropped off at night 5 mins away from the hotel. they had had floods in calella the previous week and the road was broken up., the big man on reception speaks no english and his white tee shirt was grey. he gestured to us as best he could, we wondered where we had come to. the lift was tiny and only 2 people could use it at a time. there were old matresses and a beadstead on a drop landing. as well as black bags left lying around full of rubbish. the room was tiny , bed frame rusty, bath dirty. we spent the first nigght covering the silver fish with lids off our toiletries. very hot, no air con. the food was appalling and very much like eating in a factory centeen. you could not take drinks into the dining room !!??? there was a storm one evening and we watched the electrics spark on the table lamps. on investigating the wiring we saw there were several very poor joins and insulating tape on the wire. i discreetly unplugged them as i thought we would be electrocuted. we went every day to the rep to get us out of there. we also spent every morning in a internet cafe trying to book somewhere else. i also had my at home doing the same for us, to no avail. the rep had never been to the continental. i suggested she came and looked. i did show her our pictures of the state of the rooms, it had no effect. the hotel was full of young noisy people who kept banging on other guest doors at night. i ried to complain when we were there and when we got home , noone wanted to help.
on the positive side we loved calella and went back in the september and stayed in the amaika at the other end of the resort, low and behold this is where the rep stayed. no wonder it was fantastic, and furnished like the inside of the titanic . book the continental at your peril.you have been warned
