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.

... are walking around snapping away at the sheer unfathomable scale and majesty though undoubtedly, all of us try in vain to capture the sheer scale of these fleeting moments using the array of modern camera devices. Cameras and phones and iPads and digital video cameras and go-pro cameras are all pointing in every vast direction in a probably vain attempt to capture the scene but all we can hope for is to leave with a meagre recorded essence of what we have ...
... dreams and every man is a boy at heart.
So in my early thirties, when I started climbing after a few years respite, my dreams recurred. That was the time that expeditions on Everest were increasing in number and the first guided ascents were beginning. I did look into possibilities and got as far as being offered a discount if I would be the physician for a guided group. Work, family and ultimately common sense prevailed. ...
... back through Las Ramblas. We hailed a taxi when we got out on the main road because, shocker - we were lost again. Our taxi driver was the rudest man ever and he was mad I guess that we were only driving a few minutes away. When we gave him his money he threw it aggressively on the floor of the passenger seat. Needless to say, we were very confused, tired, and frustrated at that point and were very ready for our daily siesta.
After a long nap, we woke ...
... day we just toured around. Last evening we went down to La Rumbla street and found the markets and although they were just shutting down for the day the food supplies looked really impressive. Later, we went to a nice restaurant just off of La Rumbla (the walking street) had tapa's to start of olives, asparagus and squid, for mains we shared a seafood paella dish. Lovely meal, would recommend this restaurant (my place). Walked up and down ...
... were clearly playing though because as we walked up and down streets wondering where we should be, we could hear loud cheers going up everywhere.
When the score was about 4 nil, we noticed a general flow of people heading in a certain direction so we followed them. We came out into a wide avenue which was taped each side and lined several deep with families; most of the children had an empty plastic supermarket bag. This festival ...
