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.

We stayed for 4 nights in August 2014. The hotel is very clean and tidy, the rooms are spacious, ours with 3 beds and a large balcony. The food was very good and varied with plenty of choice. The drinks system is very well thought out, handing in a card when you get a drink and getting the card back when you return the glass. Overall we had no complaints at all and would like to visit again.

We stayed for 5 days Full Board and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we couldn't fault them at all. The food was of very good quality and varied a lot during our stay. Overall the hotel was very spacious, clean with a large bar, large reception, 3 pools and situated right on the beach.
The only downer is that its situated quite a distance from Barcelona Airport, Cab ride is 120 Euros!! and so we opted for a bus there 12 Euros and a train back 17 Euros. Make sure that your flight home is after 10am as the bus and train service do not start to run till around 7-8am then you're at the mercy of the taxis. Otherwise, a pleasure to stay there

We stayed at this hotel on an all inclusive deal, overall it was very good value with an excellent selection of food and drink (with no large queues). The staff were helpful and friendly and our room was cleaned every day and was kept immaculately clean with fresh towels etc. The only downside was there was no parking facilities at this hotel and we had taken our car, we did find secure parking for 8 Euros a day 5 mins walk away. I would recommend this hotel to my family and friends. It was a good first experience of an all inclusive holiday for our family.

We were a bit wary after other reviews, but no problems at all, As other guests have commented, the hotel is good, but the problem is the drunken guests, fortunately, when we were there, the guests were all well behaved & sober. The only gripe I had, was the amount of "free" drinks that were being taken away by the waiters, such a shame that people are so greedy !!

This hotel is fine.
The restaurant is good lots of fish options, and good choices.
The pool area is a bit small for the number if guests though we could always get a sunbed.
The animacions team weren't great not much happening really and no sports facilities.
Bicycle hire is free for all inclusive guests and availability for this was good considering there is one large canopied family unit and 2 mountain bikes.
The hotel is a nice walk to the beach maybe 15 minutes through the shops, and is next door to the Friday market.
The town is fine, but not remarkable.
The visitors are Spanish French and Dutch, not many English at all.
