TravelPod Member ReviewsH TOP Amaika Hotel Calella
Hotel was great for amenities, close to beach, and very clean. Many positives, including having entertainment laid on both in afternoons and evenings, and I guess for some, the all-inclusive package would be a plus, though I would say the choices, especially for food, would be better and more varied outside in the many bars and restaurants, Its certainly good value and prices not much more if we had chosen to upgrade from half-board.
As regard negatives - half-board! Well just the catering in general, while I am assured it is of a higher standard than many other hotels in Calella, including most in the H Top group, it just was a bit lacklustre. Dont get me wrong, there was variety a-plenty as it was a buffet style, and the breakfasts had everything I would want, but the quality of ingredients and sometimes the cooking process turned some dishes into rather bland affairs, and for goodness sake, for evening dinner why not leave the breakfast juice machine on, at least the water option so that those not on all-inclusive do not have to buy any sort of drink at all to have with the meal (my wife was even told off for bringing back the same large water bottle we bought the previous evening as we hadn't finished it) - the walls are very thin so noise travels easily but I gather that is the norm for hotels in this resort if not other modern ones on the Costa Brava.

Today was a day of simple pleasures. Paul ordered breakfast without speaking any English. We wandered through the gothic quarter before the crowds, saw geese in the cathedral and Picasso "graffiti" on buildings. We discovered a local market, sat at a bar to have coffee, and were flanked by a bunch of strangers, one of whom turned out to be from Wodonga, another had an aunt and ...
... was covered in Xmas trees and kids had a letterbox on each side. The second float was decorated with all shapes, sizes and colours of Xmas presents (fake ones) with two kids on each side who were throwing out bunches of sweets......hundreds of sweets! The boot of the car towing it was stuffed full to the brim with massive plastic sacks of hard boiled sweets, which were being rushed back and forth to replenish those being thrown on the street. Now ...
We set our alarms as we want an early start today and we are off by 9.00am and arrive after our short taxi ride to Las Ramblas. Las Ramblas is a pedestrian strip right in the middle of Barcelona. There is lots of streets merchants and as everything does not open till 10.00 it is a little quite.
We decide to check out the local market La boqueria.this is huge and fantastic and has everything all in one place. The was displays of fresh fruit ...
... recognised as a crazy genius. I spent a good hour and a half just walking around, staring up at the ceiling. Next I detoured to go look at the Hospital de la Santa Creu I Sant Pau before heading towards the next Gaudi building: La Pedrera. On the way I walked past a backpack store and replaced my poor knifed open back pack. I'm sure I could have found a good market to get one cheap but ain't nobody got time for that when there's Gaudi to see. As ...
... i guess as you would expect.
Got home at five or six? and passed out. didnt wake up till seven this morning. there was meant to be a pub crawl, but i didnt make it. hayden did. Apparently there was this really awesome shot bar where they have something like 350 different types of shots you can choose from. i MUST visit this place when we come back in a few weeks time.
Maybe it was a good thing i didnt go though, and my poor hayden ...
