The Espanya Hotel (ex. Hotel ALEGRIA Espanya) is right on the seafront in beautiful Calella on Spain’s Costa Brava. A laid-back resort that’s a favourite with couples and families, Calella also offers easy access to all the excitement and culture of Barcelona. The Espanya Hotel is great value for the facilities it offers, and is a brilliant place in which to start your Costa Brava adventure.
Friendly and comfortable, the Espanya Hotel is small, with just 100 rooms (each sleeps up to four guests) spread over six floors. All rooms are en-suite and you can kick back and relax with satellite TV channels, free Wi-Fi and a mini-bar. Air-con and heating keep climate control in your hands, but if things get really warm, just step out to your private balcony.
A sun terrace and outside pool will be regular stops for summer guests. When you want to range further afield, the 24-hour reception can help you out with packed lunches, tour booking, car hire and ticket buying.
It’s possible to enjoy the Espanya Hotel on an all-inclusive basis with most of your drinks and all of your meals covered with a choice of buffet or restaurant dinner.
Calella has lots of character. It’s set on the Costa Maresme stretch of the Costa Brava, a favourite area for Spanish visitors. That makes for an interesting mix of resort attractions and traditional Spanish town. It was the 3-km beach – these days fronted with a palm-lined promenade and with Blue Flag status - that first brought visitors here. For a quieter time, head to Cala Treumal just down the coast for a beach-bar lunch.
Barcelona is about 30 minutes off by car, so if you fancy mixing a city break with your sunshine holiday you’re perfectly placed. The attractions of one of Europe’s most exciting cities could keep you busy for a lifetime, with culture, shopping, history and clubbing, it’s certainly worth at least one day-trip.
Back in Calella, the Espanya Hotel is the perfect base. Good value but with good-quality facilities and the pick of the town’s locations, it is only 30m from the beach and there is plenty of resort life just down the street.
The Espanya Hotel has the perfect fit for you and your family with a selection of single, double, triple and quadruple rooms. All rooms feature comfortable beds, natural light, satellite TV, private balcony or terrace, safety deposit box, air conditioning, desk, minibar (extra charge), telephone and a fully fitted bathroom including bath or shower, hairdryer and free toiletries. Most rooms also come with sea view.
