“beautiful location”Just got back from this hotel,and would deffinately go back there.The only problem with the area, was that is was mostly holiday homes for the Spanish people,so when the season ends, most of the shops do too.There were some lovely restaurants lining the beachfront,selling mostly Spanish dishes,but there were some that cooked English food too which was fantastic.We found a tapas bar and I asked for a portion of whitebait,omg it was enough to feed 4 people,good job I was hungry.!excellent with their portions.This place is fantastic for people that want a very quiet holiday,not much to do really but eat drink and sit on the beach *( bit boring for me ). There is a train station around the corner from the hotel,so for the more adventurous ,there are plenty of places to visit.language barrier was a small problem but we had a laugh trying to get understood.we visited Barcelona,tarragona and sant vivcent,all beautiful places to visit.We had a small problem with the hotel when we first got there,but it was sorted very quickly by the amazing lovely staff. they speak fairly good English and nothing was a problem for them.Especially cristina.she went out of her way to help and even printed off train times for us.On the whole a fantastic hotel,very clean and daily maid service.Breakfast was continental but on 1 day there was scrambled egg and bacon.There are no tea and coffee making facilities,so if like me you like your coffee,take a travel kettle with you.
“Perfect spot - and great value too!”I have just returned from my second visit to Calafell, staying in the Hotel Kursaal. The staff, accommodation and location were fantastic. Our bedroom overlooked the beautiful, pristine beach, our rooms were cleaned everyday, and the food was of a very good quality. The restaurant is a great spot to relax, dine and chill out with a nice bottle of wine, while people watching along the beautiful, spotless clean promenade. Its location is perfect for trips to Sitges, Barcelona and on this occasion we visited Vilanova I la Geltru, which was a great surprise to us. It's beautiful Rambla, with modern shops and cafe life is a real treat as Calafell, can be very quite off season. If back again, we will definetly be booking into the Kursaal again, and would highly recommend it to other to stay there as well.
“What a Find - excellent family hotel.”Could not get in at Sitges for a room with a balcony, so on the recommendation of our Grandaughter who had visited the area, we went to the Kursaal at Calafell. We are so pleased we did. Lovely small hotel; we had a sea view room with a balcony (always choose this option). Room was of average size, balcony overlooking the sea was great. Breakfast was buffet service and excellent. We ate in the hotel at night - set 3 course meal with a glass of wine and three choices was 14 Euros - it varied a bit in quality - the meal on our last night (a Thursday) was excellent. The staff were great and very helpful and we would like to mention Christina in particular, who was the main receptionist. I hope the hotel look after her, she was an absolute gem; helped us with all queries about the hotel, train times, etc., - very fluent in english. Would also like to mention the young chambermaid who was so charming (no english). We were amazed at the value of The Kursaal, its comfortable beds, friendliness, charm, position on the traffic free promenade and easy going atmosphere and would recommend it to all. It was great value for money too.
“Stayed here late may/early June. Location is fantastic 2 minutes walk from the train station where you can go to the Barcelona for the day at a cheap price. Wide range of food available lots of resteraunts nearby would especially recommend la sirena lovely authentic Spanish food. Hotel itself cleaned daily rooms a good size and extremely good value for money, could be slightly bigger but you get what you pay for and more. Beach is gorgeous. Lovely hotel to stay in for a relaxing week away would definitely recommend!
