Nice hotel with large open spaces and public areas. Situated one street back from the main drag, so more opportunity to chill out if that is what you like. The rooms are fine and well appointed and have perhaps the most comfortable beds we have ever had on holiday, Sleep quality was top drawer and this was also aided by a very efficient and remarkably quiet air conditioning system.
The hotel is used by most nationalities throughout Europe, especially eastern europe and a lot of Germans and French as well. Many guests are bused in due to Malgrat's position geographically. I think we were the only British people in the hotel and don't really know the reason for this. However, we were happy with the situation, as you can always go out to the empty bars and restaurants and talk to the bar staff. The lack of Brits is a small price to pay for everything being well ordered and a constant happy feel maintained. We never saw one drunk or heard any raised voices throughout our 5 day stay.
There were some decent shows put on at night with magicians and acrobats and that kind of thing. These lasted for an hour and then it was on with the spanish guests demonstrating to the rest of Europe that their national winter dance classes are really paying off now.
The food is very good at breakfast time, but we have had better for lunch and evening dinner. Can't complain though, as we feel we got a right bargain and the hotel would rightly be drumming up brownie points for the eastern european tastes.
There are loads of swimming pools and these must be heated, as I started breathing within 20seconds after the initial shock of going in. There is also a decent sized indoor pool for those less hearty souls at this time of year. The Bella Playa is at the top end of 3star accommodation and easily surpasses some masquerading as 4star. Bar prices were very good and some of the pubs were also offering a pint of San Miguel at 1.25 euro.
We would recommend the hotel, but in this area, we much prefer Calella as a resort.
