“Hotel Esplai”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2011

Went to the hotel Esplai on a hen party 2 weeks ago. The hotel was clean however the staff attitude left alot to be desired. The breakfast was poor however the lunchtime meal and evening meal was very nice. Only thing is to make sure your there when meal time starts as they didnt top up the food as it was used so if you want a late meal all you get is what is left with fresh chips. The main diet is pork, pork and yes pork.
The all inclusive option was a joke your given a plastic token and you exchange this for a plastic cup. No cup/token no drink simple?? even with a bright purple wrist bank on your arm. It advertised entertainment... there was nothing which made you not want to stay in the hotel and enjoy the all inclusive option paid for. watch out for muggings, i was mugged on 2nd day
bag stolen down by the beach so beware.
all in all we had a fantastic time, the hotel caters for every nationality but English. No information in English apart from telling you what time your transport will pick you up to take you home when its time to leave

Room Tip: Ask for room facing the pool as it isa much nicer view than the back of the hotel

Esplai Hotel is located near a beautiful beach. It has a nice swimming pool area and Free Wifi.
On the down-side it has a diner with very poor quality and where the food doesn't change noticably during a one-week stay. Even All Inclusive guests can only order one small plastic glass of drink at one time. So you can't have a glass of water to your glass of wine. It's extremely frustrating.
The staff doesn't wan't to help. We couldn't even get a map of the area from the reception.

In conclusion: Calella is nice but don't get All Inclusive at Esplai

Good price and quality.
The Hotel is full with german youngs, who are awfully noisy even at night until 4 a.m. One morning a room-telephone was in the pool. Generally some of young friends did foam party in the swimming pool. We did not really used the pool after that. The hotel staff did not mind at all.

The meals are a bit poor, never cakes, but always fruits.
The beach is 5 minutes walk and is very nice, the sea too.
I don't recommend to families, and adult couples.

At one time a 1 star hotel when I was a Cosmos Rep in this hotel in the Eighties, this is now a 3 star hotel and looks from the outside and in the foyer area a 4 star hotel. A friend of mine broke her ankle while on holiday in Calella, and the staff in the hotel could not have been more helpful. The food is great, and the location of the hotel, back from the main road means that you don't get all the noise from the disco's at night. Rooms all have air conditioning, and t.v. although if you don't speak spanish don't bother! nice bathrooms. The train from Calella to Barcelona is only a 15 minute walk from the hotel. An ideal hotel and location for a great beach holiday.

Room Tip: request rooms overlooking the pool.
