Profits before everything else
"This hotel is probably the worse 3 star I have had the misfortune of staying in. Advertised through another hotel site as comfortable rooms with complimentary spa and gym. The smallest room ever, everything was extra, despite being booked as complimentary. Booked a fridge (yes, extra) and when I complaint about it being room temperature, I was told it was a mini bar and therefore not as cold as a fridge. The gym (if you can call it that) was advertised in the hotel's website as having free weights and a multi-machine. These were no where to be found. 3 of the 5 cardio machines had no power on one occasion and when I mentioned this (having paid 5 Europa to use the gym) I was told there were all working. Reception staff were rude and unhelpful, no manager was ever available to discuss the misrepresentation of the hotel. The majority of other guests were as rude as the reception staff and housekeeping do not knock before entering the room. The saving grace of the hotel - there is a well stocked reasonably priced supermarket around the corner. Never again will I stay in this hotel or any in the chain. It is doubtful I will ever bother returning to any seaside resort in Spain, if this is the norm."

"I really enjoyed myself in this lovely hotel!!! The food was great except for one day when the egg wasn't cooked properly and I ended up ill all day. The gorgeous downstairs, Jacuzzi, Gym, Swimming pool and Steam Room. Yours all day if 3 people pay together 6euros each and it is yours all day 9-5 without anyone else being able to access it. Amazing holiday and staff. Thanks xxx"

"Having read the other bad review about the food, I have to say that it was the highlight of our stay! An all you can eat buffet every night and for breakfast certainly put paid to the diet! Very impressed. Rooms were clean and adequately equipped. Maid called every day and replaced the sheets and towels. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Prices in the area were very reasonable too. Some might even say cheap. Forty euros for a bottle of water in Barcelona...not exactly rip-off Britain ! Thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Kaktus Playa. Its location on the edge of the resort also meant that the beach was only a 3 minute walk away and was quieter than the centre of the resort. "

"The hotel was clean!!!! Its only saving grace As this is not a hotel for English people ...poor food which made me very ill...bad entertainment that would make Pontins look good ...and moody staff, I would not recommend this hotel !!!!! Me and my girlfriend managed to keep ourselves happy by doing our own trips by the easy to use train to Lloret and Barcelona. The beach was nice though ...but sadly my experience of this hotel has put me off Spain forever !!!!!! Also the guest were very rude for some strange reason and were unable to complain to the non existent rep. Maybe the two girls in the previous review were treated well due to the fact they were two girls who were alone!!! Not for families or couples. "

"The holiday, which I had with my friend in Calella, was absolutely fantastic!!! What made it so special was the brilliant service, which we received in the hotel, we were always made to feel very welcome and we felt very safe there (two girls on their own!). We both miss Calella, Kaktus Playa and Kaktus Playa staff very much and we would like to thank everyone there for making us feel so welcome and making our holiday so special!
