If you are coming from Barcelona Airport, there are 3 ways you can get to Calella:
a) Train - with 2 changes. From Barcelona to Sants(20 min), and Sants to Calella(1 hr). Cost about 3.5 Eur in total per person.
We took this option but I don't recommend this as it was quite hectic with kids ! It is almost 15 min walk from Barcelona Airport to the train station, and was quite tiring, and trains were busier. We were lucky we got a seat !
Get down at the Calella station, and you can walk down along the beach to get to the Hotel in about 15 min. But we took a taxi, cost only 6 Eur. Would recommend taking a taxi tho' if travelling with little ones.
b) Book Shuttle (recommended). We tried this on our departure day from Hotel Amaika to Airport, and certainly very good. The hotel booked this for us for 20Eur per person ( including kids ). You can get at a cheaper rate if booked early from the internet.
c) Take Taxi - Cost 120Eur one way.
If you are not staying for lunch, you can get it packed.Really nice and saves you few Euros ! Just remember to talk to the reception for packed lunch the day before. (possibly before 7pm)
The bar was very good. You can have 2 drinks with the AI card at one go. Not a problem for us. Also. there was live music almost everyday after supper.
The hotel itself was not bad but the resturant was more like a works canteen On the weekend the hotel was full of spanish people who took over the bar and entertainment If you don't speak spanish you are left out
Excellant hotel in terms of location and cleaness. Great clean town and train links to Barca are exc (every 1/2 hours) in clean, air con trains. Twon is clean a v cozy with lots of shops and resturant. The hotld is nearer to clubs and bars so if you are a light sleeper my advice will be to ask for not a sea view room (which I am sure you will miss). Will diff go back in the future

we only stayed for three nights, but wish it was longer. I was apprehensive after reading reviews, but needn't have been. Granted this is a quieter time of year, and perhaps the best time to go with young family, but the staff were all very helpfull at all times, the hotel is very clean and the room was comfortable even though we had an extra bed in it. Would go again, but maybe not in high season.
