The hotel was very nice, room big and airy, high floor, sea view, exactly what we requested. Drinks and snacks were ok except the evening snacks only a ham or cheese sandwich with no butter, no crisps or nuts and you couldn't even have it toasted. The food in the restaurant was ok but always cold, we did tell the chef but he wasn't interested, just told us to microwave it.

Medplaya is all about the kids as it is a family hotel, I think it is really good for kids they have a great time. I did not have children with me, I travelled with a friend, adult entertainment not that good for adults but good for kids. If you want a good holiday for your kids then yes, this is the place; children love it. The hotel its self and the staff are good, rooms cleaned every day. You get what you paid for, so well worth it.

Hotel has gone downhill since I visited 8 years ago. Out of season all evening entertainment geared towards Spanish quests, no fun trying to follow a Spanish quiz. Calella is a pretty resort but all bars clubs were closed so nowhere really to change venue from hotel. Lots of shops to visit and lovely walks. Rooms were ok, clean towels changed daily, standard find in 3 star, asked for extra pillow left in room soon after. Found food just ok for me, edible not tasty, quite bland choices were about 4 main dishes. No snack bar open when I stayed end of April; we were a/i.

The hotel is situated a couple of streets back from the main street so location wise the hotel is near the beach and the main shopping area which is good. The hotel staff are friendly and all speak good English and are happy to offer advice or assistance whenever requested. The hotel is classed as 3 star but that said it is very clean, albeit a bit basic. The food is very good with plenty of choice to cater for all tastes, but like everything can get a bit repetitive; but it depends how you choose to eat. The first time you are faced with all the choices you are tempted to eat a bit of everything. I would recommend you stick to one choice for each meal so therefore you will ultimately have more variety throughout the course of the week.

The entertainment staff work extremely hard to cater for all tastes and I admire their positive outlook even when faced with lack lustre guests. The only gripe I have about the hotel is the all inclusive drinks element. You can only order 2 drinks at any one time and all drinks are served in plastic half pint glasses even the coffee! There are real glasses behind the bar but I think these were only served to customers who were on either half board or full board and they had to pay for drinks. I also didn't rate the white wine or local spirits (this may be personal taste) although the San Miguel was excellent so we drank outside the hotel on 4 of the 7 days we were there. That said however, I think for the money we paid, the Santa Monica is a great bargain hotel and if I were to visit Calella again I certainly wouldn't rule out staying again, although I wouldn't go all inclusive purely because of those awful plastic pint glasses!

The reason I liked this hotel was for its location, the beach (500 yds) and the main street for entertainment was a similar distance without hills to climb. The hotel and food was good, and the bar was always well staffed. Will be back next year to see the Ironman competition and the Octoberfest.

Very clean, staff friendly and welcoming. Food could be massively improved, and queuing at meal times is stressful. I was very disappointed to arrive on my first evening and be told that the hotel had "over booked" and I had to spend the night in a different hotel. If I pay full price for a service, I expect the service I pay for. I was very surprised having stayed here for many years, the hotel really let themselves down on this occasion.

I booked this hotel because it had good reports. The food was awful you had to stand at a desk at every meal time including breakfast, give your room number in and then you got told what number table to sit at. Breakfast was not that good fried eggs were always cold and like bullets, never had a soft egg, you might just as well have a boiled one. They never put butter out at lunch or dinner only margarine, I got fed up asking for butter, gave up in the end. Never had ham or cheese at lunch or dinner either, only breakfast time. Little tip, if you want butter take it at breakfast. Hotel was clean and room was good. Staff were ok, entertainment was done by staff every night which got boring. Not a lot going on around hotel. I would not recommend this hotel for food reasons, they need to sort it out.

We had a fantastic stay at the Santa Monica, we plan to go back again soon. The staff, food, drinks and cleanliness of the hotel could not have been better.

Loved it. The room was clean, towels changed every day, the food was good. It was good on reception, they spoke English and were very helpful. Very family friendly. We asked for sea/pool view and got it at no extra cost. Yes, would go to the Santa Monica hotel again.

This is a good standard 3 star hotel. Good points are:- Good Food, All inc drinks variety, Pool area, Location.

Bad Points are:- Like most Spanish hotels the wall thickness is minimal to say the least.

Excellent overall. Entertainment staff good for adults as well as children, they work extremely hard. Rooms tended to well by cleaning staff. Food good and varied. Ample sunbeds. Ideally situated about five mins walk from beach and the town. Family friendly is a understatement, our 11 year old daughter loves it there. This was our second year on the trot at the Santa Monica, definitely thinking of making it a third year.
